Discover the Alternative to Dairy-Based Protein Powder with our Range of Vegetable Protein!
Do you have problems digesting dairy-based protein powders? Or do you prefer a protein powder that does not contain any animal products? In either case, our vegetable protein supplements may be the right choice for you. Check out our overview of valuable vegetable protein powders below and judge for yourself!
Pea Protein Isolate
Pea Protein Isolate is not based on dairy products, but that does not mean this protein powder is not versatile. Similar to some of the well-known protein powders such as whey and casein, Pea Protein Isolate can help athletes with weight loss, sports performance, muscle building, health & wellbeing and women’s fitness.
Our Pea Protein Isolate is an excellent option for athletes sensitive to dairy products, or athletes who experience digestive distress with dairy products in general. Even though it is not made of dairy, this vegetable protein supplement contains a similar amino acid profile as whey protein and is especially high in arginine, lysine and phenylalanine.
Pea Protein Isolate is best used before training, because the fast absorption and amino acid profile similar to whey are able to provide athletes with a quick energy boost and all the nutrients they need during a heavy workout. That being said, this vegetable protein supplement is so versatile is can also be used for muscle growth and endurance, which means it can be consumed after a workout as well.
Athletes can obtain Pea Protein Isolate in various flavours as well, so you are bound to find something that matches your personal taste preferences. Available flavours for Pea Protein Isolate include natural, vanilla and chocolate, so there is plenty to choose from.
Rice Protein Isolate
Many vegetable-based protein supplements in our range are very versatile and can be used for a variety of fitness goals. The same applies to our Rice Protein Isolate, which can be used for weight loss, sports performance, muscle building, endurance and so much more.
One of the remarkable things that accompanies Rice Protein Isolate is that the protein supplement has an amino acid profile that is closest to breast milk compared to other supplements on the market. The supplement is also hypo-allergenic and completely free of dairy, which makes Rice Protein Isolate a great choice for people sensitive to dairy products. Of course, the hypo-allergenic qualities of this supplement also make Rice Protein Isolate suitable for athletes who are prone to stomach irritation.
Soy Protein Isolate
Another lactose-free supplement in our range is Soy Protein Isolate. Similar to our previously described vegetable proteins, Soy Protein Isolate can be used for a multitude of fitness goals; this includes weight loss, sports performance, muscle building and other popular training goals people set for themselves when looking for a supplement.
Soy Protein Isolate is a protein that is absorbed and digested quickly by the body, so athletes with a slower metabolism may find this protein useful if they are trying to lose some weight. However, the high levels of naturally occurring amino acids make this supplement suitable for muscle gains as well.
Nutrients Direct Soy Protein Isolate is considered to be the most refined form of soy protein powder as well, which includes a minimum protein content of approximately 90%. The protein itself is obtained from defatted soy flour, which in turn is obtained from the soybean. One of the biggest advantages of the manufacturing processes that are used for this conversion is a lower fat and carbohydrate content, which is again a big plus for athletes looking to lose fat.
Soy Protein Isolate is also available in various flavours, so you do not have to suffer just because you need to use a vegetable-based protein instead of a dairy protein. Soy Protein Isolate is currently available in delicious natural, vanilla and chocolate flavours, so you will have enough variety to keep you going throughout your training regime.

Getting vegetable-based proteins can be a great alternative for animal-based supplements, even for athletes who are not on a vegetarian or vegan diet. In some cases, athletes have trouble digestion animal-based proteins, which could mean some digestive distress after consuming whey or casein protein. If this problem sounds familiar to you, a vegetable-based protein might be better for you. Of course, if you do experience digestion-related problems, it is always best to get yourself checked out by a doctor. If you have trouble digesting lactose, you may have to change your diet all-together.
Being lactose intolerant can mean making some major changes in your diet. For most athletes suffering from lactose intolerance, the beginning of this change is especially challenging, mainly because they aren’t familiar with the alternatives out there. If you wish to ban lactose from your diet due to digestion-related issues, it is always recommended to discuss your diet with a nutritionist or a doctor. A nutritionist is often better for lactose-related issues though, because a nutritionist can give you much deeper insight into alternatives you could incorporate in your diet. Your nutritionist can also create a meal plan that does not contain lactose, but still enables you to obtain the fitness goals you set for yourself.
