Protein isolates are heavily processed. Their impact on health is a subject of some debate in holistic circles.
While I do not believe they are downright terrible, I do believe there are less heavily processed and more nourishing options out there. One of them is pea protein.
This is a favorite among raw athletes. With choices like this, why would anyone seek out highly processed and (often) unnaturally sweetened powders?
