What is your favourite protein supplement? Most days, walking down a protein powder section within the store can be overwhelming. From your whey, casein, egg whites along with a plethora of plant-based protein options.

╚»★«╝

Pea protein, soy, rice, and of course, those extreme-looking protein powders that overpromise and underdeliver in quality.

╚»★«╝

I myself, have had some questions regarding the Nuzest range along with why I am using it, as a health, wellness and female trainer, I believe we are all different and all unique. Therefore, not one food fits all, however one thing we all benefit from is by incorporating more plants to our lifestyle.

╚»★«╝

Secondly, these days most of us might not get adequate amount of quality protein from our food sources, or we might find some of these protein powders cause havoc with your digestion. 

╚»★«╝

There are many questions regarding what is a complete protein source and what is not when it comes to plant based protein.

╚»★«╝

Therefore, I have done some research for you based on this brand along with the reference points.

╚»★«╝

I use Nuzest not only because I am vegan, but based around the fact that I can definitely feel the product delivers quality.

 

I no longer have bad digestions since I switched over to Nuzest. 

 

I have for ease therefore included some key points as to what makes Nuzest different in comparison to products in the market, along with the outline that nuzest is indeed a complete protein.

 

However, the amount of protein required is unique to each person, along with exercise exertion and muscle mass as it all varies from person to person.

 

Nuzest being a complete pea protein, made with high quality and sustainable ingredients. It's indeed becoming a go-to source, especially for their health, environmental, or ethical concerns. The unique clean formula of high quality product was scientifically formulated to suite everyones lifestyle needs.

 

Pea protein also contains slightly more protein per 100-calorie serving than rice protein does—22 grams vs 15 grams. This makes pea protein quality over quantity.

Often some people are intolerant or allergic to legumes, a class of plants that includes peas, beans, lentils, soybeans, and peanuts. However with Nuzest the Clean Lean Protein is naturally free of lectin, which is often the compound driving a legume allergy. In case you're wondering, lectin is a type of plant protein that binds to carbohydrates and reduces your body's ability to absorb nutrients.

 

Whey protein is often marketed as a great post-workout protein. While it's definitely important to consume enough protein to support muscle repair and synthesis, you can still optimise these adaptations if you choose Nuzest Clean Lean Protein, because it provides 100% of the amino acids your muscles need, including isoleucine, valine, arginine, and lysine.

 

Why Pea Protein is Better Than Whey?

 

Whey protein is made via the draining of liquid milk through a filtration system. The material that is left after this draining process is known as whey protein concentrate, and is dried to form a variety of protein supplements you see on supermarket shelves. 

This concentrate contains varying degrees of the disaccharide lactose – the sugar present in milk – which contributes to the wide range of total calorie amounts in whey protein supplements.

 

On the other hand, pea protein is produced via the extraction of soluble pea protein from yellow split peas, followed by drying and rehydration of the produced pea flour. Thus, pea protein is completely plant based and is suitable for vegans, those with gluten intolerances, and individuals who must rely on a lactose-free or plant-based diet.

Utilizing plant-based proteins instead of animal proteins is the more sustainable option. 

 

Most people don’t realize the extent to which land is harmed in the production of meat proteins. In fact, an article released by Roquette reveals how the land requirements for animal protein production are 10 times greater than that required for plant-based proteins.

 

In general, plant-based and vegan proteins tend to be lower in calories per serving than animal-based protein supplements. Nuzest’s Golden Pea Protein has approximately 90 calories per serving, whereas a typical serving of whey protein has between 100 and 150 calories per serving.

╚»★«╝

Whey protein can be difficult for many people to digest, and might cause abdominal pain, bloating, and fatigue. However, plant-based protein is known to be easier on our digestive symptom due to the absence of milk-derived ingredients.

╚»★«╝

Because it is lectin free, very low in phytates and contains nothing artificial, it is ideal for those with digestive issues. 

╚»★«╝

Nuzest’s pea protein has a 98% digestibility rating, making it an ideal option for fuelling one’s body throughout the day without having to worry about digestive complications. Say goodbye to bloating and stomach discomfort.

Benefits of Pea Protein

╚»★«╝

Pea protein provides high-quality protein and is a rich source of arginine. It contains a high level of iron, which is important for those on a vegan or vegetarian diet. Iron from plant sources doesn’t absorb as well as it does for animal foods, so it’s necessary to focus on products that have high iron content.10 On average, pea protein products are low in carbs and low on the glycemic index. The concentrated protein makes it a good choice for just about any diet plan.

╚»★«╝

The peas used in Clean Lean Protein are grown in nutrient rich, uncontaminated soil, and processed with clean water… without the use of chemicals. Using Premium European Golden Peas grown in the rich soils and clean environment of Northern France, Clean Lean Protein is processed in Belgium by world leaders in pea protein isolation, a private company that has been in the same family since 1852. 

╚»★«╝

Strict European growing and processing regulations ensure that the highest standards are maintained.

This pea protein is widely acclaimed as the highest quality pea protein isolate in the world. Quality checks are in place throughout the supply chain. Growers are carefully selected and even the non-GMO seeds are provided to farmers to ensure quality standards are maintained.

╚»★«╝

Wheat chaff is separated from the crops before processing to reduce the risk of gluten contamination. The protein then goes through the isolation process using a patented, water-based technology to produce a very fine powder that has very little taste or smell of pea; this is the sign of very high-quality isolate.

Sensory properties the mark of quality is also measured by what is NOT in the final product. In this case, it is not only allergen free, it is also the only pea protein isolate to claim a lectin-free status which, along with extremely low phytate levels and fine particle size, contributes to its excellent digestive properties.

The final test of quality is the actual protein content; the higher the content, the better the isolation process. At up to 90% protein content (measured on Dry Matter), the pea protein isolate used by Nuzest is the highest in the world.

The resulting very fine powder, the envy of other producers, is easy to mix and flavor, which is how Nuzest achieves such a great taste and silky-smooth texture. The final raw material is of course tested for all allergens, heavy metals and pesticides.

╚»★«╝

And it doesn’t stop there! Nuzest then blends the isolate with nothing but natural flavor and a natural sweetener made from katemfe fruit from West Africa. There are no processing aides, no emulsifiers, no gums, no fillers, no added sugar, no preservatives and nothing artificial. This is carried out under strict GMP conditions with the finished product again being tested for gluten, dairy, soy and safe microbial content.
