Eating a plant-based diet or a diet with certain restrictions can make it difficult to get in enough daily protein. Remember, it's not just how much protein you are getting, but the quality of that protein. A diet that is high only in things like collagen, nuts, wheat or beans could leave your true protein goals unmet.
Protein is scored using a measure known as biological value (BV). On a scale of 0-100 with 100 being the best, most animal protein sources score 90+, whereas beans and wheat come in the 50s. Pea and rice protein are some of thehighest plant-based biological values, coming in around 70. We take this a step further by using a specific ratio of pea to rice to bring the total amino acid composition to closely mimic meat.
We avoid restrictive proteins like soy, which are avoided by most, as well as some of the new "trendy" protein sources with lots of marketing behind them, such as hemp or pumpkin seed. New doesn't always mean better, it usually just means new exciting marketing and advertising. Some of these, like hemp in particular, will leave you feeling bloated and gassy 6-8 hours after consuming.
