Essential Amino Acid Profile and its Bioavailability: Bioavailability refers to the readiness of a nutrient to be absorbed by the body. Essential Amino Acids are the building blocks of proteins that cannot be synthesized by our bodies, and therefore must be acquired through our diets. When a protein contains all the essential amino acids it is said to be complete.
Whey and Soy are both complete proteins, and are recognized as the standard bearers for animal and plant derived proteins respectively. Individually, Hemp, Pea and Brown Rice proteins are also complete, although with varying levels of the essential amino acids. However, when combined, these three superfoods provide an Essential Amino Acid profile that rivals either Soy or Whey. Additionally, all three proteins are highly bioavailable, with a Protein Efficiency Ratio that begins to rival dairy or egg proteins, and certainly more readily available than Soy.
Where these superfoods set themselves apart from Whey and Soy is that all three are hypoallergenic. This means that a Hemp, Pea, and Brown Rice protein blend is the perfect protein supplement for individuals who find that Whey or Soy is not a viable option because of allergies.
