Vegan? In need of increased protein intake before or after training? Whey, casein, egg, chicken, tuna, red meat not being an option? Both, Weider's "Soy Protein 80+" and Scitec Nutrition's "Soy Pro" provide more than 70% of complete protein content (Weider 80.1g/100g, Scitec 71.4g/100g). 100g of Weider's product provides 380kcal, Scitec 428kcal. Both come in different flavors (strawberry and vanilla to name only two). In my case I find chocolate most acceptable. Suitable alternative for lactose intolerant athletes, and those who prefer alternatives to animal-sourced protein. Fat? Up to 4g in 100g Soy Pro, 3.4g in Soy Protein 80+. No issue with blending (with soy milk - Alpro, Alpro Light, Bio Soja Reis, rice milk, etc.) using electric hand blender, even with added banana. Well drinkable and digestible. Potential downside? Artificial sweeteners - in both. You may want to check for content of acesulfame K, sucralose, sodium cyclamate and saccharin. Actually, Soy Pro seems to leave more sweet aftertaste. 27 servings in Weider's 800g container, 32 servings in Scitec's 910g container. Scitec claims "our soy protein isolate is...non-genetically modified product." Read the allergen info and other warnings and - enjoy!
Fantastic home-made vegan red Thai curry. Raw materials sourced at Vietnamese TTTM SAPA market in Prague. Mr Ginger and Mr Lime did not attend the photosession and were added later on. Rich in flavors, colors and general goodness. Necessary protein provided by abundance of fresh tofu and soy beans.
Tofu: Some nutritionists state that one half-cup serving of raw firm tofu contains 10.1 grams of protein. By comparison, similar amount of dairy milk contains 5.1 grams of protein, egg 6 grams and ground beef about 26 grams of protein.The recommended daily intake is 56 grams for most men and 46 for most women. Being extremely versatile, tofu is an excellent source of protein, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and selenium for vegetarians.
Vegetarian since 1990, on my way to become vegan. Teetotaler.
