Vegan protein powder for building muscle

Many people believe that plant-based protein powders do not optimally supply the muscles with protein and that vegans therefore find it very difficult to build muscle mass. We show you that this is not the case and that you can also gain more muscle strength and mass with vegan products. 

In our blog post, we present various protein sources and illustrate that vegan protein powder can provide you with even more protein than the animal variants.

But why does the body need protein at all?  

Proteins perform a variety of tasks in our body: among other things, they are responsible for the shape of cells and tissues (tendons, skin, muscles) as a building block in the body, are used to produce hormones and antibodies and transport various substances in the body.  
The amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and therefore the main components of our muscles. Sufficient protein intake is particularly important during high levels of sporting activity. The increased consumption of nutrients caused by sport and the strain on the muscles means that more protein is needed. According to the German Nutrition Society (DGE), everyone should consume 0.8 - 1.0 g of protein per kilogramme of body weight every day. For athletes, the requirement is increased to 1.2 to 2.0 g. This additional requirement can be easily met with our vegan protein powder. 
Vegan protein powder is not only suitable for people who want to gain muscle strength. Proteins in the form of a protein shake are also very important when losing weight or for muscle maintenance during a diet. 
Tanimal vs. Vegan protein powder 
Since the trend is increasingly moving towards plant-based products and many people are completely avoiding animal products, there is now a large selection of vegan protein powders 
However, anyone who thinks that only animal protein powder can provide the body with an optimal supply of protein is mistaken. This is because vegan protein powders have an equally high protein content compared to the animal variants. It is also known from various studies that plant-based protein is much healthier for the human body. Vegan protein powder contains many micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals, significantly less fat and no cholesterol. Furthermore, protein powder is a good alternative for people with lactose intolerance. 
In the following blog post, you will find even more information on why plant-based protein is just as suitable for building muscle as animal protein.  
To give you an overview of our selection of different vegan protein powders, we have listed and briefly explained some protein sources from our range below: 

Vegan protein powder - choose your favourite from various protein sources 

Pea, wheat, soya, rice, almond and sunflower protein - the bases for vegan protein powders are diverse. Here are three of the protein sources we use: 

Soy protein 

Soy protein is probably the best-known plant-based protein source available. Soya plays an important role in the diet of vegans in particular. As the media often report badly about this legume, people are often confused. Yet soya has a high protein content, an excellent amino acid profile and a high biological value. The protein composition of soya is therefore comparable to that of animal protein. Soya also contains small amounts of carbohydrates and fats. You can find out more about the benefits of the legume here.
Many of our vegan protein powders also contain soya. However, there are also people with a soya intolerance, so other sources of protein should be used: Our pea and rice protein is a good alternative.

Pea protein 

If you suffer from an intolerance to soya and/or gluten (wheat protein), you can use our vegan protein powder with pea protein. However, pea protein is not only beneficial for those with an intolerance, but the unique ingredients also make it so popular. Pea protein is also characterised by its good digestibility.
Peas have a high protein content. They contain an optimal ratio of essential branched-chain amino acids (abbreviated to BCAA). Branched-chain amino acids include the three amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. These are present here in an optimal 2:1:1 ratio. BCAAs play a particularly important role in muscle building and regeneration. 
However, the two amino acids methionine and cysteine are only present in small quantities. This is why pea protein is best used in combination with another protein source. For example, the combination of pea and rice results in an excellent amino acid profile, as both protein sources complement each other perfectly. Our vegan protein powder with pea and rice therefore outperforms even animal products by far and does not have a sandy consistency like many other pea and rice protein powders. 

Rice protein 

Of all protein sources, rice protein has the best digestibility as it is hypoallergenic. As the name suggests, rice protein is obtained from the vegetable grain of rice. Like soya and pea protein, it has a high protein content and a broad amino acid profile, which optimally supplies the body. In contrast to pea protein, rice protein has a fairly neutral flavour. 
The amino acid that only occurs in very small quantities in rice is lysine. As described above, a combination with pea protein is therefore suitable. 

Multi-component protein 

Our vegan protein powders consist of a combination of the protein sources described above. We also use wheat, almond and sunflower protein. 
If at least two different protein sources are added to a powder, then the term multi-component protein can be used. By mixing different vegetable protein sources, an optimal supply of all amino acids to the body is achieved. The strengths of each individual protein source are thus combined and lead to a very high biological value of the proteins. It is not only the quantity of proteins that is decisive, but also the quality. You can find out all about biological value in the following blog post:  
In general, it can be said that the higher the biological value, the better the protein from the food can be converted into endogenous protein and made available to the body.  

What is the solubility of vegan protein powders?  

Our vegan protein powders have good solubility - even when prepared in a shaker, the protein shake is nice and creamy. It also doesn't matter whether you prepare the protein powder with water, almond, soya or oat drink. 
Tip: If you don't want to drink a protein shake every day, you can also mix our protein powder into your muesli or smoothie. You can also use our neutral protein powder and our Natures Protein for cooking or baking. This gives your food an extra portion of protein. You can find a large selection of recipes here 

Our vegan protein powders 

Thanks to our different protein sources, you have suitable alternatives for every intolerance. Whether soya-free or gluten-free - there's something for everyone. Want to avoid soya? Then choose our pea and rice protein. Do you have a gluten intolerance? No problem! Choose our Natures Protein. 
We also offer a large selection of different flavours: From the classic chocolate to peanut butter cookie to strawberry cheesecake - there really is something for every palate. 
Our protein powders are developed under the strictest quality standards in Germany by our nutritionists.  

Conclusion: Vegan protein powder for muscle building 

Vegan protein powder provides you with a high protein content with all the important amino acids. The combination of different protein sources increases the biological value and thus optimally supports you in building muscle. Plant-based proteins are therefore just as suitable for building muscle as animal proteins.
The many beneficial ingredients contained in plant-based protein form the basis for a healthy diet. This makes our protein powder suitable not only for vegans, but for all health-conscious people.
