Plant protein powder is a supplement that's composed of protein sourced from different plants, including peas, brown rice, and hemp.

Protein powder is highly absorbable and convenient – more so than eating the same amount of food – and it's been linked with increased muscle mass in some studies. Most people who use plant protein powders mix them into smoothies or other drinks to make them tastier, but they can also be used in cooking.

Plant protein powder can be a good way of getting all the essential amino acids (those that the body cannot produce itself) without having to eat particular protein sources that you might not like. This includes vegans and vegetarians who might not enjoy eating food from a particular animal source.

Although plant protein is often considered to be inferior to animal protein in terms of digestibility, research suggests that this isn't the case.

WHY TRY PLANT PROTEIN POWDER?

Protein powder is a convenient and muscle-building way to boost your protein intake. You can make a healthy homemade meal replacement smoothie by mixing protein powder, fruit, and yogurt in a blender, but the powder can also be added to food.
