8 of the Best Vegan Protein Powders in the UK

Pop into any gym or sports shop and you will be confronted with protein powders. Maybe your friends and family are into protein shakes. 

What’s with all that protein talk? Proteins are known to help reduce weight while building muscle. Also, protein powders help in tissue repair. 

Maybe you didn’t know but you are tearing muscles when you workout. That’s the “burn” that you’re feeling. The muscle fibres get damaged and then join back together. 

That’s where protein powder comes into the picture. Your muscles are provided with what they need for repairing so that they can grow big and healthy.

Maybe you can’t buy vegan protein powder at your local gym or health food shop. That’s no reason to get disheartened.

There are plenty of brands that cater for you. Here we have gathered together some of the top vegan protein powders in the UK.

Let your workout commence.

Neat Nutrition’s Vegan Protein Powder is made from British sourced ingredients. It packs a whopping 26g of protein and only 3g of fat.

Carbohydrates come in at 3g per serving. Neat says that you are getting the essential amino acids that you need, yet they don’t list these.

They do mention Lysine as one of the amino acids.
