The Advantages of Pea Protein Over Whey Protein




A significant portion of the population is at least mildly allergic to whey protein.

One bodybuilder claimed he became more cut and less "puffy" when he switched from whey to pea protein. He believed it was due to his previous allergenic inflammation response to whey protein.

Whey protein is higher in two specific amino acids, cysteine and methionine. These are the only two amino acids that contain sulfur.

Sulfur has a strong acidifying effect on the body, so whey protein is more likely to make someone acidic than is pea protein.

This blue bar chart emphasizes that pea protein is more slowly digested than whey. For every gram of pea protein consumed, you burn one of the four calories through the digestion process.




On the other hand, whey protein is quickly digested, so this calorie is not lost through digestion. Pea protein is a much better choice for someone that is looking for a weight loss.
