We all love mushy peas with our fish and chips, and now with the help of science these little green gems have become a leader in sports nutrition too.

Is Pea Protein Any Good?
Pea Protein is incredibly good and is perfect for individuals looking for a plant based, vegan or vegetarian protein powder that offers insane nutritional value, if you take part in physical activities. It also digests slowly so is a great source to ensure you receive a sustained release of amino acids both through the day and throughout the night. Is there anything this vegan protein cant do? Maybe bench 225, but that's beyond the point!
Can you build muscle with Pea protein?
As Pea Protein is a high source of high quality premium grade protein it can help you build muscle easily. The protein contents provides unparalleled contribution towards the growth of muscle mass, and the natural addition of amino acids, vitamins and minerals, helps you push through the barriers of muscle loss. Often used by vegan and vegetarian athletes worldwide to help them become the best possible versions of themselves, supplementing this could be the fine line between first and second place.
When should I use Pea Protein 80?
Pea Protein should ultimately be used directly after taking part in physical activity, to allow your body to absorb the high quality protein, vitamins and minerals and supply your muscles before they become fatigued and depleted. We recommend taking a shake within 30 minutes of physical activity, but don't worry if you forget, being able to maintain protein levels is just as important, so adding this vegan shake 2-3 times a day will give your body the perfect balance, ready to push through any hard intense workout.
Who is Pea Protein 80 Powder Suitable for?
Pea Protein 80 is associated with individuals on a vegan or vegetarian diet, but if you don't fit into that category don’t let that put you off. Pea protein 80 is becoming very popular for everyone, with its pure protein contents, low carbohydrates, low fat and incredible flavour. Its suitable for no matter what body goal you have in mind, whether that be building mass or losing fat, and can easily be added to your daily routine.
When is best to take Pea Protein 80?
We recommend taking Pea Protein 80 after working out, by adding one 30g scoop to 150ml-250ml of water or plant based milk, depending on which diet you are on, will provide you body with a well needed protein, vitamin and amino acid hit, ready for your next workout or your day ahead. Without adding protein directly after working out could result in those dreaded DOMS, or delayed onset muscle soreness for those that dont know, possibly causing a longer recovery time. If you’re anything like us at THE PROTEIN WORKS™ you’ll want to get back in that gym as soon as possible.

I'm gonna be honest: the flavour can be really off-putting. The first time I tried it was in a shake with nothing more than the pea protein and it actually almost made me gag, not a really nice flavour at all. But then I started it mixing it together with my chocolate soy protein and some banana and it turns out the strong pea taste dissapears and it turns drinkable, thank the gods.
I also recently used this protein to make some homemade protein bars and they turned out great, so this powder is also really good for baking, you can really tell that this protein is from A1 quality, even if you dislike the taste!

PP80 mixes up easily, doesn't get too foamy, and has a neutral taste. It's also really good to add into food (mixes really well into a home-made GF oats, nut & seed flapjack, for example, and actually helps bond everything together).
Gains are good and lean - perhaps not as good as an advanced whey, but it's a solid base protein to boost your intake and I certainly have no complaints. Try it.

This combines well with some soy protein and hemp protein to provide a better spectrum of amino acids which is important to provide adequate muscle recovery and growth to aid the development of lean body mass.
This pea protein is great for adding with soy protein when making your own baked foods, such as low carb protein bars, protein muffins and vegan protein balls when used in combination with some natural almond or peanut butter.
The taste of this protein powder isn't the greatest but you can easily mix it with a fruit juice of your choice of squash to improve it and make it more palatable.
Pea Protein Isolate gets 5/5 because it is a great additional protein source for those that cannot consume animal based proteins either because of health or dietary restrictions.

Q. Why do I need to take protein?
A. Consuming a protein shake can help muscle growth. It is a widely researched fuel that has been shown to help muscle growth, recovery and repair after intense exercise or workout.
Q. Is all pea protein isolate the same, regardless of which brand it is?
A. As with so many things in life, if you don't ask the right questions, you won't get the right answers! The quality of protein can vary significantly and therefore the protein content will do too. In addition, just because a product may be called Pea Protein Isolate it doesn't mean that it only contains pea protein isolate. We recommend you read the ingredients and nutritionals on the label to better understand exactly what you are buying. We can assure you that our Pea Protein 85 is purely pea protein isolate.
At TPW™, we are committed to transparency and openness in all our products and that is why we provide the following information on all our protein products:
1. Product Profile - a complete overview of the product's background including our approval, location of manufacture and money back guarantee applicability
2. Protein Insight - a complete breakdown of the types and quantities of protein contained in the product
3. Product Testing - an up to date certificate of analysis which provides independent verification of the protein content
Q. How can I tell if the protein I use is a good quality protein?
A. Key signs to look for are the level of protein declared on the label. Look for pea protein isolate with a minimum of 85%.
Q. What does "dry basis" and "as-is" mean when talking about protein content?
When you see a protein powder that states on the label the protein is given as "dry basis " this means that the moisture present in the powder is included in the total protein value. Moisture in dry protein powders are typically around 4%. However, when a protein supplement is stated "as-is" this means the actual protein content of the powder with the water content excluded. In other words, the true protein you will be consuming.
As protein prices have increased significantly over recent years due to the large demand in the sports nutrition sector, some brands may not give you all the facts in regards to the true level of protein in their products. At TPW™, we believe in transparency to give you the utmost confidence when choosing your protein supplements. On all our protein products you will see both the as-is and dry-basis values declared. Once again, it's all about knowing what to look for.
Q. Is pea protein isolate powder suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
A. Yes it is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Q. Can I take pea protein isolate with other supplements?
A. The simple answer is yes. We recommend you always check serving instructions on each product if you plan on taking a combination of supplements. Pea protein is most commonly taken with creatine, oats, BCAA and glutamine. In fact the uptake of protein can be improved by introducing high GI carbohydrates, as this creates an insulin spike which helps flood nutrients to the muscles quickly.
Q. Can I take too much protein?
A. If you don't burn the excess calories that come with the additional protein, it may lead to increased body fat. No other side effects have been noted in research carried out.
Q. What if any side effects will I get from taking pea protein isolate?
A. We haven't heard of any nasty side effects from taking pea protein powder other than maybe increased flatulence!

In simple terms, you should be able to get back in the gym quicker for your next workout .
