WheyMeal®-DF (Dairy-Free) is a plant-derived protein powder alternative to our popular whey-based WheyMeal®. It is free of casein, lactose, and gluten and offers the same comprehensive nutrient blend as the original WheyMeal®. When used with a balanced whole foods diet, WheyMeal®-DF is designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for overall wellness.
WheyMeal®-DF: Featuring plant-derived protein Peatein™ WheyMeal® -DF is made with Peatein™, a natural pea protein concentrate offering a high level of functionality and nutritional benefits. Using a patented protein technology, the production process does not use any chemicals. The raw materials, North American grown yellow peas, are not genetically modified (non-GMO).
Peatein™ has an excellent array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids). While its amino acid profile is similar to whey protein, it is particularly high in arginine, leucine, lysine and tyrosine. Peatein™ is a true vegan protein which has excellent digestibility (98%) and is hypoallergenic.
As pea protein has ACE inhibitory activity, it may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels. It has also been shown, in rat studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) by stimulating bile acid formation and excretion.
