Vegan Protein Powder Vs. Whey Protein?

What is the difference between vegan protein powder vs. whey, egg or casein, and will it make any real difference which one you choose for your muscle building diet?

The simple answer is that as long as you’re getting in enough total daily protein (0.8-1.0g per pound of bodyweight) and are deriving that protein from a variety of sources, it really won’t make any difference to your bottom line results whether you choose a plant based protein powder or an animal based one.

This is because your body can only utilize a limited amount of protein in one day anyway, and given enough total protein and enough variety, you’ll already be getting all the amino acids needed to maximize protein synthesis anyway.

So whether you go with a vegan protein powder or something like whey, egg, or casein, it’s just not going to make a noticeable difference in the big picture.

It is true that on a gram for gram basis vegan protein powder will have a lower absorption rate in comparison to animal based protein, but again, in the context of an overall balanced diet it still will won’t negatively impact your results.

So whether you’re following a full blown vegan bodybuilding diet or you’re simply looking for a plant based alternative for whatever reason, just go with whichever protein supplement you prefer.

There are plenty of vegan protein supplements available these days based on a variety of sources such as pea protein, brown rice, quinoa, potato, soy and hemp, along with products that combine them in various ways.

I’ve personally experimented with a few different vegan protein powders recently and found that when blended up as part of a complete smoothie they taste just fine as well.

Bottom line on vegan protein power vs. whey?

Just choose whichever one you personally prefer.

  1. Only reason I use brown rice protein rather than whey because I get acne outbreaks from dairy products like cheese, milk and yoghurt etc… so this stopped my acne outbreaks

  2. i don't have the slightest problem to digest whey but considering the cost of a high quality whey that you are sure the cows are feed with grass and not all kind of shit, i prefer to buy high quality vegetable protein who are realy cheaper

  3. Check out Clean Green Protein with Lentein. Lentein is a fresh water plant that is:
    Higher in Essential Amino Acids and BCAA's than any other plant known including Pea, Hemp, Rice or even Soy.
    Higher in Nutrient Density than any other plant known – more than Kale, Spinach, Spirulina, Chlorella or even Moringa.
    1 serving contains 40%DV Omega 3, 35%DV Iron, 22%Dv Calcium, 28%DV Fiber and 190% DV Vitamin A.
    With an AAS of 1.04 (whey is 1.06) it is the first plant comparable to Whey.
    Digestibility – PDCAAS of 0.93, plus we add ProHydrolase enzyme making it nearly completely bioavailable.
    Clean Machine is the first and only company in the world to have Lentein.

    Sean – Let me know if you would like to try it or review it, I would be happy to send you some.

  4. I use Sunwarrior natural protein powder with Silk protein almond milk, banana, raw cacao powder, cinnamon, flax seed, spinach and mix it all in a blender. Super delicious, nutritious, and goes down nicely. All natural, vegan, and non gmo. Sometimes I'll put peanut butter instead of flax seed. All together I get about 35-40g of protein out of 1 smoothie along with tons of other nutrients on top it.

  5. I recently stopped being stupid (A Vegan) after about 10 years. I can tell you with 100% certainty that Animal based proteins are much, much more effective than plant based proteins (not to mention all the other health benefits of eating meat!). I've been working out for about 2 years and I was pathetically weak. I tracked my macros, got all the things I was supposed to be getting and I still wasn't getting stronger.

    After a lot of consideration, I started eating animal products again (Mostly eggs, ground turkey and some cheese). I immediately found I had more energy, slept better than I have in years and My lifts have increased to the extent that I feel like I'm on steroids. It's like I've got noob gains all over again, but they weren't this good the first time (when I was a vegan)! I am now convinced that You just can't get strong on a vegan diet. If you think you are strong as a vegan, try eating meat again (as part of a healthy diet) and I guarantee you will get a lot stronger. Besides the whole strength thing, there are a lot of other negative side effects to eating meat. I honestly haven't felt this good in a whole lot of years.

  6. Great video! Thank you for mentioning the importance of maintaining a balanced diet while supplementing with vegan protein powders. I'm always surprised with clients seem to forget that element.

  7. Thanks, Sean. This was an awesome video. I used to take whey based mass gainer but I suffered bad skin, stomach and kidney pains. So I didn't take any supplements for about six months with decent gains through diet. But I recently found pea protein (all vegan) and just ordered a bin. Very eager to use is post workouts.

  8. Veganism is a misguided human notion even though it's built upon noble ideas however humans are opportunistic omnivores. And before anybody accuse me that I haven't tried I tried both veganism and vegetarianism and I did feel like shit so there you have it one size doesn't fit all.

  9. So any ideas on a good brand for pea protein? I was originally taking ON gold standard whey protein and had great results but it made my acne so much worse, now I am currently trying to bulk but can get more than 150g of protein in my meals I need to boost it up to 190 and need a protein supplements replacement for whey, I was in between rice and pea since soy lowers your testosterone. I decided to go with pea first but no idea on the brand? Any suggestions

  10. have you heard of moringa? so i was thinking of using soybean milk
    powder and moringa powder or just soybean milk powder to gain more while
    i work out from home. your swift response will be appreicated. thanks

  11. Basically different proteins have different amino acid profile there is no bad or good protein.If you take out the beef protein (which is gelatin btw) and has the worst amino acid profile with almost NO tryptophan and some other important aminos,any protein is fine.Soy protein has been shown to increase igf1 higher that whey also (thats one of the reasons of the bone protective nature of soy) and maybe cause of the higher glutamine,lysine,arginine content.Soy and pea especially are really solid,casein is not a good choise in general,whey is better for people who consume animal proteins.Nice video dude.

  12. Whey makes me terribly tired so I'm dropping it. I'm considering pea or hemp, but my rice intake Is probably already too high as I've read brown rice contains much cadmium.

    Is there anything to consider with sourcing pea protein? Like is there certain states or countries that source healthier and higher quality products? Or do peas tend to uptake certain metals at a high rate?

  13. I use myvega protein never looked back since! My stomach can't handle whey proteins. Like with everything else when they change the formulaic content to make it cheaper to mass produce it sucks.

  14. The real ration of protein per day is as you said 0.8 grams but compare to your weitght in kilograms
    If i Weight 65 kg mine would be 52g per day. It can increase to 1g,1.5, 2 or even 2.5 depending of our level of exercise per day.
