Soy Protein

2. Blend of Plant-Based Proteins

  • Benefits: Some supplements combine multiple plant-based proteins like pea, rice, hemp, and quinoa to provide a balanced amino acid profile, improved taste, and better texture. These blends offer optimal nutrition and digestibility.

3. Lactose-Free Whey Protein Isolate
