Plant-Based Nutrition: 3 Sources of Plant Proteins to Consider Adding to Your Healthy Diet by Susan Bowerman, M.S., R.D., CSSD, CSOWM, FAND
For those who practice plant-based eating, soy protein is king of plant-based proteins – but it isn’t the only option. Here are other popular plant-based proteins to consider for a more wholesome diet:
- Pea Protein: Supplies eight of the nine essential amino acids that a healthy body needs, and like other proteins, it will help satisfy hunger and curb cravings.
- Quinoa Protein: Contains higher protein content than other grains, like corn or barley. When extracted from the plant, quinoa protein can be concentrated into a powder form for plant-based shakes.
- Rice Protein: Known for being rich in carbohydrates, rice contains a considerable amount of high-quality protein, which can also be concentrated into the form of powder.
Try incorporating these alternative proteins into your diet to help sustain energy, satisfy hunger and support weight management.
