Plant-based protein sources like rice, soy, and peas are ideal for athletes on a vegan diet. Vegan protein powder is therefore finding an increasingly large target group. In addition, vegetable protein sources are naturally lactose-free and so well tolerated.
The biological value, i.e. the ability of our body to absorb the proteins, is often not quite as high with vegetable protein sources as with animal alternatives. Otherwise, however, both are not inferior to each other and contribute correctly dosed and used sensibly to the nutrition in the sports everyday life.
