Soy Protein Powder Insight
Soy Protein Isolate 90 is the most refined form of soy protein, isolated from the soya bean which is then defatted and most of the carbohydrates removed. The soya bean is a legume that contains no cholesterol and is naturally low in saturated fats. Soya beans are the only vegetable that contain all EIGHT of the essential amino acids. Isolated soy protein is easily digested by the body with a digestible rating of 95-98%.
If you follow a vegan diet, Soy Protein Isolate 90 is considered a nutritionally complete protein and can help provide the essential vitamin B12, which is only found in animal proteins.

A. Soy Protein Isolate has a neutral vegetable taste, and is considered the cleanest tasting vegetable protein available.

A. It is recommended that you consume between 2-5 servings per day, dependent upon your own personal needs. A serving would be classed as 30g (one scoop) of Soy Protein Isolate 90. It is recommended that you take 1g of protein per pound of body weight, so adjust your intake accordingly.
Q. Why do I need to take protein?
A. Consuming a protein shake can help promote muscle growth. It has been widely researched and shown to help muscle growth, recovery and repair after intense exercise or workout.
Q. Is all Soy Protein Isolate the same, regardless of which brand it is?
A. As with so many things in life, if you don't ask the right questions, you won't get the right answers! The quality of protein can vary significantly and therefore the protein content will do too. In addition, just because a product may be called Soy Protein Isolate it doesn't mean that it only contains soy protein isolate. We recommend you read the ingredients and nutritionals on the label to better understand exactly what you are buying. We can assure you that our Soy Protein 90 is purely soy protein isolate. At TPW™, we are committed to transparency and openness in all our products and that is why we provide a Product Profile, Protein Insight and Product Testing on this product.
Q. How can I tell if the protein I use is a good quality protein?
A. Key signs to look for are the level of protein declared on the label. Look for soy protein isolate with a minimum 90% content.
Q. What does "dry basis" and "as-is" mean when talking about protein content?
A. When you see a protein powder that states on the label the protein is given as "dry basis " this means that the moisture present in the powder is included in the total protein value. Moisture in dry protein powders are typically around 4%. However, when a protein supplement is stated "as-is" this means the actual protein content of the powder with the water content excluded. In other words, the true protein you will be consuming. As protein prices have increased significantly over recent years due to the large demand in the sports nutrition sector, some brands may not give you all the facts in regards to the true level of protein in their products. At TPW™, we believe in transparency to give you the utmost confidence when choosing your whey protein supplements. On all our protein products you will see both the as-is and dry-basis values declared. Once again, it's all about knowing what to look for.
Q. Is Soy Protein Isolate suitable for vegans and vegetarians?
A. Yes, it is suitable for both vegans and vegetarians and those with a dairy intolerance.
Q. What is Soy Protein Isolate made from?
A. Soy Protein Isolate is derived from soya beans.
Q. Is Soy Protein Isolate absorbed as quickly as whey protein?
A. Soy Protein Isolate powder is considered a slow to moderate release protein, so is ideal to use alongside other protein sources.
Q. Can I take Soy Protein Isolate with other supplements?
A. The simple answer is yes. We recommend you always check serving instructions on each product if you plan on taking a combination of supplements. Soy Protein Isolate is most commonly taken with creatine, oats, iBCAA and glutamine.
Q. Can I take too much protein?
A. If you don't burn the excess calories that come with the additional protein, it may lead to increased body fat. No other side effects have been noted.
Q. What if any side effects will I get from taking Soy Protein Isolate?
A. We haven't heard of any nasty side effects from taking our Soy Protein 90.

A. No, there are no foods that contain Soy Protein Isolate. There are many foods that contain high levels of protein, such as red meat, chicken, turkey, fish, eggs and cheese.
Q. What does Soy Protein Isolate actually do?
A. It plays a vital role in post workout nutrition. It gives your body a sustained moderate timed release of protein that is low in fat and carbohydrates at that vital time after you've exercised when your body is in a catabolic state.
Q. What effects should I expect from taking Soy Protein Isolate alongside my training regime?
A. Results vary depending on your diet, nutrition, training and individual body type. For an average individual, it can help increase lean muscle mass and support an increased metabolic rate. It can also aid reduced muscle breakdown post exercise and improved recovery times, as well as faster muscle repair post workout. In simple terms, you should be able to get back into the gym quicker for your next workout .
Q. Who should take / benefit from using Soy Protein Isolate?
A. Bodybuilders and strength athletes. Endurance athletes. Those on a controlled weight loss diet. Those new to weight training. People involved in team sports. Vegans and vegetarians looking to add a quality protein source to their diet. People with a lactose intolerance.
It dissolves quite well and has a pretty neutral flavour (almost like flour, but not as distinct) which adds to its versatility in shakes and bars. It's also pretty darn good in oatmeal!
Soy protein has a bad reputation amongst some bodybuilders because of the erroneous belief it is low quality and lowers testosterone, but this couldn't be further from the truth (as indicated by research, e.g. http://www.fertstert.org/article/S0015-0282(10)00368-7/abstract).
If you are, like me, allergic to dairy, or are vegetarian or vegan or simply want to try a different protein supplement, then I would definitely recommend this product!

Great if your vegan too. Really really impressed.
The formula is good though, helps pick me up after a heavy legs/back session and goes down pretty easy.
As the above reviewer wrote though, TPW get some flavoured varieties out there, I'm sure you would make a killing then.
