Vegan Protein Ingredients
– Pea Protein (Pisane C9).
The content of essential amino acids defines the quality of proteins and, more specifically, branch-chained amino acids (BCAAs) because they are key to building and maintaining muscle mass. In addition, pea protein has a high biological value, which means it provides a large amount of essential amino acids and is especially rich in BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine and valine). Pea protein provides a higher content in lysine and a larger supply of arginine than any milk protein.
When choosing a protein, we must bear in mind that the rate of release and absorption of amino acids is crucial. Pea protein has an intermediate absorption profile, which mean its amino acids stimulate protein synthesis and at the same time remain high in the bloodstream enough time to protect and build body muscle.

– Pisane VS Other Pea Proteins.
Weider’s Vegan Protein main ingredient Pisane, pea protein isolate. Pea isolate Pisane C9 contains 88% of protein which comes from non-transgenic peas harvested in Europe. For its extraction only mechanical methods are used, so no chemical solvents like hexane, normally used to extract low-quality plant proteins, are involved in the process.
From this exclusive method to extract Pisane results an isolate with high protein content and highly digestible. Pisane is rich in iron (15 mg/100 g) and is free of lactose, cholesterol free and most common food allergens such as gluten.
Foods from vegetable sources are naturally rich in compounds called antinutrients such as alpha galactosides, trypsin inhibitors or phytic acid. These antinutrient compounds interfere with the absorption of nutrients and reduce the digestibility and nutritional value of plant-based proteins. Thanks to its exclusive production methods, Pisane contains very low amounts of these compounds.
– Brown Rice Protein
You’ve probably heard it somewhere: if you combine legumes with rice you will obtain a protein with high biological value. Rice protein complements the powerful aminogram of pea protein. The rice protein used in Vegan Protein comes from ecological non-transgenic brown rice, so it is easy to digest and offers an excellent profile of amino acid that, in addition, are release at a medium pace. Rice protein is a source of fiber and minerals such as calcium and iron. It is naturally gluten and cholesterol free.
Just as pea protein it is low in isoflavones and, of course, suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
A state-of-the-art ingredient made from healthy cereals (oats fiber, ecological amaranth, ecological buckwheat, ecological chia, ecological millet and ecological quinoa). This combination supports the regular absorption and metabolism of glucose, thus helping to prevent sweet cravings and energy slumps. ModCARB™improves the bioavailability of nutrients and at the same time supplies nutrients such as amino acids and functional components like beta-glucans. ModCARB™ also adds to Vegan Protein a creamy delicious texture that makes eating plant-based protein a tasty experience.
Although ModCARB™ is made with cereals, it is absolutely gluten free.
– Dynamic Fruits&Greens™.
Fruit and vegetable concentrate extract which supplies nutrients and antioxidants to support your health. Some of this formula’s ingredients are paprika, ginger, broccoli, spinach, cabbage, green tea, raspberry…
Dynamic Fruits&Greens is free of all allergens and GMOs (genetically modified organism).
– Natural ingredients.
Natural ingredients are the aim and base of Vegan Protein. To name a few, it contains cocoa powder, turmeric as coloring or sweeteners derived from Stevia. Stevia is a natural sweetener extracted from the leaves of the stevia plant whose glycosides are zero-calorie.
