Vega Sport Performance Protein is a plant based protein powder that is packed with nutrition that really enables people who enjoy it to reach for the next-level in their sport performance. The product is delicious and easy to mix in with liquids. I love it!
Each scoop (41g) of Vega Sport Performance Protein contains 30 grams of complete protein, 6 grams of each BCAA and glutamine, plus performance ingredients such as tart cherry, turmeric, and probiotics. Check out a full list of the ingredients in the powder on the Vega website. As a result of all of this, Vega Sport Performance Protein can really help to build and repair strong muscles, and reduce recovery time.
Vega Sport Performance Protein is non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan and grain-free.
Vega Sport Performance Protein is made without grain, dairy, or caloric sweetener ingredients, making it appropriate for some definitions of paleo lifestyle. Check the ingredient list to determine whether it will fit within your lifestyle.
Vega Sports Performance Protein is super versatile and can be incorporated into lots of recipes and meals.
Adding a scoop to overnight oats (like in this bowl here) is a delicious and super easy way to boost breakfast protein.
Protein pancakes are also a great treat that can be made even better with Vega Sports Performance Protein. Just check this stack out!
I love the vanilla flavor, however the chocolate flavored protein is ideal for creating chocolaty desserts like this post workout pudding:
This pudding is smooth and delicious. It is a great way to refuel after training. With the Vega Protein this dessert is nutrient dense and the perfect way to get what you need into your body after a workout. The pudding recipe is on the Vega site. You can easily blend it before your workout, let it set in the refrigerator and then enjoy it once you get back.
Hemp Protein and Informed Choice
Interestingly Vega doesn’t incorporate hemp protein in their Vega Sport Performance Protein because although they think that hemp is a pretty awesome source of plant-based protein, they wanted to give athletes assurance that all products in the Vega Sport system would be safe to use both in training and competition. Hemp contains THC (even though in tiny amounts) and this means that Informed Choice and other third-party sport supplement certifiers will not allow hemp to be in products and have a zero-tolerance policy for any hemp ingredients.
As a result of this, Vega Sport Performance Protein is Informed Choice certified. The Informed Choice program provides assurance that Vega Sport Performance Protein has been tested for substances on the World Anti-Doping Agency list of banned substances and is safe for athletes to use.
