PEA PROTEIN 80
Pea Protein Isolate & Plant-Based Proteins
Pea Protein 80 from The Protein Works™ uses only the highest grade plant-based proteins and comes with our ultimate product assurance. Providing over 80% protein per 100g (dry basis), it’s an allergen free source of protein and contains abundant amounts of BCAA's, glutamine, arginine and lysine - key amino acids for muscle growth and recovery. Pea Protein is highly bio-available, easy to digest and ideal as a healthy alternative to other protein sources. It also digests slowly so is a great source to ensure you receive a sustained release of amino acids both through the day and throughout the night.
The Perfect Vegan Choice
Pea Protein is made completely from plant sources. Many vegan and vegetarian protein powders are considered inferior to animal derived protein powders in terms of amino acid profile. However our particular formula boasts a massive 85% protein content as well as an amino acid profile to rival any others on the market based on research published in The Current Sports Medicine Reports . Plus it has large amounts of the essential amino acids - lysine, valine, arginine and isoleucine in particular. This is why many vegan athletes consider Pea Protein the ultimate choice as experts believe this is the best animal-free protein powder available due to its high Biological Value.
How To Use Pea Protein In The Diet?
Pea protein powder is often associated with vegan and vegetarian strength and power athletes. This is because research published in the The Journal of Sports Sciences found, “A considerable amount of evidence during the past 15 years indicates that regular exercise does in fact increase protein needs." But since vegan and vegetarian diets are (obviously) void of any meat, a quality protein shake like our pea protein powder makes a great alternative. But what’s interesting is research published in The Nutrition Journal has a lot of non-vegans and non-vegetarians introducing it into their diets. This is because nutritionists set out to analyse the appetite-suppressing properties of pea protein and found some very promising results.
The Nutritional Facts
It’s quite hard to pinpoint the exact benefits of plant-based proteins since there are so many to list. Pea Protein for instance is low in fat, carbohydrates and cholesterol and is 100% gluten and GMO free and is ideal for vegans, vegetarians and those with lactose intolerance. It’s basically perfect for anyone and everyone looking to add an additional quality protein source to their diet.

I'm gonna be honest: the flavour can be really off-putting. The first time I tried it was in a shake with nothing more than the pea protein and it actually almost made me gag, not a really nice flavour at all. But then I started it mixing it together with my chocolate soy protein and some banana and it turns out the strong pea taste dissapears and it turns drinkable, thank the gods.
I also recently used this protein to make some homemade protein bars and they turned out great, so this powder is also really good for baking, you can really tell that this protein is from A1 quality, even if you dislike the taste!

PP80 mixes up easily, doesn't get too foamy, and has a neutral taste. It's also really good to add into food (mixes really well into a home-made GF oats, nut & seed flapjack, for example, and actually helps bond everything together).
Gains are good and lean - perhaps not as good as an advanced whey, but it's a solid base protein to boost your intake and I certainly have no complaints. Try it.

This combines well with some soy protein and hemp protein to provide a better spectrum of amino acids which is important to provide adequate muscle recovery and growth to aid the development of lean body mass.
This pea protein is great for adding with soy protein when making your own baked foods, such as low carb protein bars, protein muffins and vegan protein balls when used in combination with some natural almond or peanut butter.
The taste of this protein powder isn't the greatest but you can easily mix it with a fruit juice of your choice of squash to improve it and make it more palatable.
Pea Protein Isolate gets 5/5 because it is a great additional protein source for those that cannot consume animal based proteins either because of health or dietary restrictions.

Q. When should I take pea protein isolate?
A. It depends on your lifestyle and goals, we recommend the following optimal serving times. Immediately upon waking | 30 minutes post workout | Before you go to bed. Any other time during the day when you require additional protein intake.
Q. What does it taste like?
It has a neutral vegetable taste. If you wish to enhance the taste, then you could try making your shake with almond milk or soya milk, or even blend peanut butter or banana into your protein shake.
Q. How much protein should I take?
A. It is recommended that you consume between 2-5 servings per day, dependant upon your own personal needs. A serving would be classed as 30g (one scoop) of pea protein isolate. 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 muscle growth. It is a widely researched fuel that has been shown to help muscle growth, recovery and repair after intense exercise or workout.
Q. Is all pea 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 Pea Protein Isolate it doesn't mean that it only contains plant-based protein. 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 Pea Protein 85 is purely pea protein isolate.
At TPW™, we are committed to transparency and openness in all our products and that is why we provide the following information on all our protein products:
1. Product Profile - a complete overview of the product's background including our approval, location of manufacture and money back guarantee applicability
2. Protein Insight - a complete breakdown of the types and quantities of protein contained in the product
3. Product Testing - an up to date certificate of analysis which provides independent verification of the protein content
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 pea protein isolate with a minimum of 85%.
Q. What does "dry basis" and "as-is" mean when talking about protein content?
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 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 pea protein isolate powder suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
A. Yes it is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Q. Can I take plant-based protein 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. Pea protein is most commonly taken with creatine, oats, BCAA and glutamine. In fact the uptake of protein can be improved by introducing high GI carbohydrates, as this creates an insulin spike which helps flood nutrients to the muscles quickly.
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 in research carried out.
Q. What if any side effects will I get from taking pea protein isolate?
A. We haven't heard of any nasty side effects from taking pea protein powder other than maybe increased flatulence!
Q. Do any foods contain pea protein isolate?
A. No, there are no foods that contain pea 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 pea protein isolate actually do?
It plays a vital role in post workout nutrition. It gives your body a sustained release of protein that is low in fat and carbs at that vital time after you've exercised when your body is in a catabolic state.
Q. What effects should I expect from taking pea 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 in the gym quicker for your next workout .
Q. Who should take / benefit from using plant-based protein?
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.
