Fava (also called broad bean) and pea protein are a good lactose-free alternative to whey protein. But what exactly are the health benefits of pea and fava protein?

Both pea and fava proteins are praised for being complete sources of protein, meaning they are easily digested and pose little to no risk of allergic reactions. In addition, they contain all 9 essential amino acids. The body cannot produce essential amino acids itself, but they are essential for the proper functioning of the body. 

A nice additional advantage of fava and pea protein is that it has a very neutral taste and a tasty, smooth structure. Unlike many other plant-based protein powders that often feel a bit sandy and grainy in the mouth.

Amino Acid Profile

It is good to know that pea and fava protein complement each other perfectly in terms of amino acid profile. Pea protein contains a low level of the amino acids cysteine ​​and methionine, but a high level of lysine (important for growth functions in the body). Fava proteins contain a low content of lysine but a high content of cysteine ​​and methionine (important for protein synthesis in the body). Together they provide an optimal amino acid profile that is superior to any other plant-based protein source. As an added bonus, they are dairy-free and easy to digest.
