Cress Valley Power Plant Protein with Vitamin C 500g | NZ Made | Natural Vanilla Flavour | No Added Sugar | Protein Powder | Protein Powder NZ
Cress Valley Vanilla Protein Powder is made in New Zealand from premium pea protein and brown rice protein, which provides a complete amino acid profile and imparts a silky smooth texture. There are no fillers or preservatives, and is allergen free with added vitamin C.
Pea Protein contains all 9 essential amino acids that your body cannot create and must get from food. Pea protein contains branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine and valine, which promote muscle growth and repair. Pea protein is also very high in lysine. However, pea protein is quite low in methionine. On the other hand, rice protein is high in the sulfur-containing amino acids like cysteine and methionine, but low in lysine. When pea protein and rice protein are paired together they create a full amino acid profile. So essentially, what pea protein lacks in amino acids, rice protein makes up when paired together.
Cress Valley protein powder is allergen-friendly for those suffering from common food allergies such as dairy, wheat, egg and soy. This protein powder is also suitable for vegans and those following a plant-based or vegetarian diet.
Even better, pea protein powder and rice protein powder are highly sustainable proteins, especially compared to animal proteins, which have a large carbon and water footprint.
Power Plant Protein has been formulated to provide a full amino acid profile and synergistically help promote muscle growth and repair.
