If you’re looking for a Vegan protein powder there are many options available. Generally, whey protein is considered to be the gold standard for bio-availability in protein. However, if you know what to look for in a vegan protein powder you can still get that same level of bio-availability.
Nitrofusion Protein – Premium multi-source vegan protein powder
My top pick for a vegan protein powder is Nitrofusion because it is a multi-source, premium quality protein powder. Many vegan protein powders will only utilize one single source for their powder. Pea protein is a common choice for vegan protein as it is 95% digestible and highly hypoallergenic. While pea protein is a good choice I wouldn’t consider it a great choice simply for the fact that the amino acid profile is lacking in certain areas.
What Nitrofusion has done though, is fill those gaps with other vegan sources. This makes Nitrofusion more complete than most other vegan protein powders and it even rivals whey when it comes to bio-availability. The protein sources in Nitrofusion include pea protein, artichoke protein, organic sprouted amaranth powder and quinoa protein.
Amino Acid Profile
When scrutinizing any protein powder for its amino acid profile the most important amino acids to consider are the BCAAs and glutamine. If those are in sufficient amounts than you’re pretty much guaranteed that all of the other essential amino acids are present in adequate amounts. To my surprise Nitrofusion packs an enormous 5.3 grams of BCAAs and 4 grams of glutamine per 25 grams of protein. This vegan protein powder far exceeded my expectations in this area.
If you have food allergies I highly recommend Nitrofusion, as it is free of gluten, dairy, soy and all animal sources.
Sweetened with Stevia
Stevia is a natural, zero calorie sweetener than comes from a plant. It is sweeter than sugar and is becoming highly popular as healthy alternative to sugar. I love the fact that Nitrofusion is sweetened with stevia rather that artificial flavors and sugar like most other protein powders.
All Natural – no artificial flavors, non-GMO, no preservatives or fillers
Not only does Nitrofusion avoid the use of artificial flavors they also don’t use any fillers or preservatives like many other supplements companies unfortunately do. On top of that they make a point of it to use non-GMO sources in their formula, which you don’t see supplements companies doing everyday.
Vegan protein powders aren’t always known for being delicious however most people love Nitrofusion’s three flavor options; chocolate, chocolate raspberry and vanilla.
The quality of which this powder consists warranties a very high price tag. Fortunately for us Nitrofusion is affordable. You’ll pay a bit more than you would for whey however in this case it’s worth every penny, especially if you’re vegan or suffer from food allergies. At around $14/lb I would consider it a deal.
With only 4 grams of sugar in the form of fructose, Nitrofusion is a great choice for anyone. It’s roughly biologically equivalent to whey without the use of any animal sources; It’s free of anything artificial; It’s hypoallergenic and it tastes great. You won’t find a better, healthier or more complete vgean protein power than Nitrofusion at any price.
