My family have been recommended a Pea Protein Isolate too. It's called "CLEAN LEAN PROTEIN" ( http://www.nuzest.com
) which is an all natural, all-vegetable isolate made in Belgium!! isn't that from your neck of the woods?
Anyway it's gluten - free and high in glutamine ( 50 % higher than whey, which I know we can't consume anyway )which is important for recovery from training and reduction in muscle loss.
Protein is so important as it has all 9 essential amino acids - the ones the body does not produce itself and must obtain from food sources.
"Clean Lean Protein" has a 98% digestibility rating and a pH reading of 7.8 which makes it an alkaline protein. This helps to delay the impact of lactic acid build-up during muscle contraction allowing for longer periods of exertion.
My family are all going to try it since we all do various degress of weight training, although you don't have to be weight training to take it.
I like the idea of trying it because it only contains 0.2 g saturated fat per 100 grams - 4 servings.
Hope this helps
Love and light
