Why combine pea protein with goat whey protein?
Pea protein is an excellent ingredient to pair with goat whey because both proteins are free of many of the common allergens that often plague cow and soy protein. Pea protein and whey were made for each other. Whey is higher in the essential amino acid threonine than pea protein but is comparatively low in phenylalanine. Pea protein makes up this difference by contributing an extra helping of this important amino acid. Both pea protein and goat whey are high in the essential amino acid lysine. Finally, during digestion, pea protein acts similar to casein protein (the natural counterpart to whey found in goat milk) as it is digested slowly while the whey is digested quickly. This makes the two ingredients perfect for delivering a balanced and easy-to-digest nutritional drink.
