Which is better, Whey or Vegan Protein?
In terms of protein content, vegan protein is not inferior to whey protein. The absorption of the proteins by the body is also good in both cases. Although the body has to make a little more effort with vegan protein to process it and it will therefore be absorbed a little more slowly. However, this should not be a problem at all. In terms of taste, whey protein is a bit creamier and more "milkshake" like. In terms of sustainability, vegan protein wins out over whey because much more raw materials and water are used for the production of milk.
