Who can benefit from plant protein?

Dairy intolerant, lactose sensitive or living a vegan or dairy-free lifestyle? Find out how your lifestyle may benefit from plant protein.

Those with reduced food intake

Making sure your protein intake is adequate helps maintain muscle mass during a calorie deficit. If you are watching your calorie intake for weight management, you will want to make sure the weight you are losing is from fat mass rather than valuable muscle mass. Consuming enough dietary protein will help the growth of muscle mass for use as a source of energy.

Older people

The recommended intake for protein increases a further 25 percent after you hit 70 years of age. This is due to a progressive loss of muscle mass, strength and function that occurs as you age.

Those taking part in any form of regular physical activity

Combining exercise with adequate protein intake promotes muscle protein synthesis by providing the amino acids needed to retain and build muscle mass. It also helps to repair physically stressed muscles for optimal recovery.

Vegetarians and vegans

The trend for vegetarian and vegan-suitable products is growing fast. Reasons for choosing to follow such a lifestyle may include ethical, environmental or religious beliefs, or it may be more of a nutritional choice. There are a number of benefits associated with a well-managed plant-based diet.

Lactose intolerant and those on a Low FODMAP diet

Those with a sensitivity to lactose or FODMAP foods may have a difficult time digesting whey protein powders. Peas are typically a high FODMAP food, but refined pea protein isolate has had much of the carbohydrate and fibre removed during processing.
