All About Pea Protein
Although whey is typically viewed as the gold standard of protein powders, pea protein — a relatively new entry in the world of protein powders — is worth a look.
Not surprisingly, pea protein (not to be confused with pea flour) powder comes from yellow peas. Along with all the benefits of being free of dairy, pea protein offers additional benefits since it is a plant-based food.
Pea Protein vs. Whey Protein: What Are the Differences?
Nutritionally speaking, pea protein contains a fairly similar nutritional composition as whey protein (exact numbers will vary depending on specific products and brands).

As seen in the chart above, the nutritional breakdown is quite similar in each type. However, differences are still present.
For starters, pea-protein has the advantage of being free of dairy. This is especially beneficial for vegans or dairy-sensitive individuals. Whey also tends to have an unpleasant taste that needs to be covered up with the addition of flavours. Alternatively, pea protein is relatively flavourless and makes an excellent choice for boosting the protein content of smoothies or shakes without affecting the flavour.
Pea protein — unlike many other plant-based options — is a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine of the essential amino acids. This makes it a muscle-building powerhouse.
Although pea protein does have less BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) than whey, it is still effective for building muscle.
