Plant-Based Protein™ is different. It has aminos derived from pea, pumpkin-, sunflower- and watermelon-seed protein, so it provides the full spectrum of EAAs that plant-based dieters need and can’t get from conventional plant-protein supplements.
Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, or just looking to reduce the animal products in your diet, you don’t have to sacrifice results anymore.
Leucine is a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) that scientists believe is the most important amino of all for muscle growth†︎. According to the International Society of Sports Nutrition, the optimal amount of leucine for stimulating muscle gains is between 0.7 and 3 grams per serving of protein†︎. One scoop of whey protein usually has 2—3 grams of leucine, while plant-protein powders are much lower, and that reduces their muscle-building potential.
However, Plant-Based Protein™ has extra leucine added in, bringing its typical total up to 2.27 grams per scoop. That means it’s well within the leucine range you need to promote muscle growth, and comparable to what you’d get from whey, while remaining animal-free and vegan-approved.†︎
The table below shows how Onnit’s Plant-Based Protein™ compares to our Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate™. The numbers per serving are virtually equal.
