Faba Bean Sample SachetPlant Based Protein That's Functional.
NZ Protein's faba bean protein isolate powder is a newer plant based protein that's more pleasant than some other types of plant proteins, and it makes a good alternative to pea.
It's clean tasting and has less gritiness that's often associated with plant proteins.
Faba bean is high in protein (85% - unflavoured) and is a complete protein with a good amino acid profile. That means it's suitable for muscle growth and development and is comparable to other high quality sources of protein.
Like with other plant proteins, faba bean is vegan, GMO free, and naturally free of dairy, gluten, soy, and other allergens*.
Lastly, and perhaps most interestingly, it's functional. That means faba bean is likely to perform better in recipes and baking applications. It's heat stable too so works well in soups and casseroles.
Faba bean protein isolate has more of a neutral taste than other plant proteins. The texture is cleaner and not so grainy. It blends easily into other foods and with other flavours.
Faba bean is formulated to mix with water, but other liquids (such as almond milk and yoghurt) can be used. It mixes slightly thicker than whey but not as thick as pea protein.
Each sachet contains one serving (31.25g). Add the entire sachet to 300-400ml of water or your favourite milk in a shaker or blender. Blend with fruit to make it into a smoothie or bake it into cafes, muffins or biscuits.
