Vegetable proteins supplements

Sporting performance doesn’t necessarily require a meat-based diet. With our vegan protein products and all they offer, you can maximise your workouts with a supplement that comes exclusively from plant-based products, with zero animal-based ingredients.

Why kind of Vegetable Proteins can you find at HSN?

Amongst the wide variety available in our catalogue you'll find products from a range of plant sources, such as: soya, chickpea, bean, pumpkin, rice, hemp, or our pack that lets you try different options before deciding on a favourite for your day-to-day.

There are a whole host of alternatives to animal-based whey protein. We’ve got you covered – whether for lifestyle choices, allergies or intolerances.

What is vegetable protein

A healthy, balanced vegan diet can provide the body with the high-quality protein it needs, even for athletes.

What would be the difference compared to those of animal origin?

Plant proteins are classified as incomplete proteins, as the foods they’re sourced from often lack the full range of essential amino acids or vitamin B12. Otherwise, they act in the same way as animal proteins, they're just 100% plant-based.

There are no end of athletes following vegetarian and vegan diets, and these athletes need sports nutrition supplements to help them meet their protein needs, albeit from a purely vegetable source.

Vegan protein products are a great alternative for them, as well as for anyone simply looking for a dietary supplement that’s not of animal origin.

Why choose vegan protein?

100% vegetables

Vegan proteins are made from 100% plant-based foods and contain zero animal protein.

Lactose Free

Vegetable or vegan proteins are also completely dairy-free, and this improves digestibility, especially for those who are allergic and/or intolerant.

Advantages of consuming vegetable proteins

When it comes to protein intake, vegetarians will need to eat a much more varied diet. Thanks to the emphasis on certain foods, any vegetarian or vegan can count on a high quantity of quality nutrients, ingested through natural foods that contain protein. In addition, they are lactose-free and easily digestible.

These are some of the benefits of vegan protein: 

Low in fat

IT’S LOW IN FAT

Cholesterol levels

PROVIDE AN AMINO ACID PROFILE SIMILAR TO THAT OF ANIMAL PROTEIN

Cardiovascular diseases

HIGH DIGESTIBILITY

Buying vegan protein: The perfect dietary supplement

At HSN, you have a wide variety of plant protein or vegan protein to choose from – always quality, with daily offers, and perfect to add to your shakes.

They're a great alternative as a source of quality amino acids and vitamins, and they taste great too, with different flavours to milk-derived proteins such as whey products. 

You can also find mixed options with blends of various types of plant protein powders, as well as soy-free and sugar-free versions. In addition, these supplements are also rich in a range of other nutrients, such as vitamins (vitamin B12 and folic acid), minerals (iron), essential fatty acids and fibre.

We always make our products with the best quality raw materials available and aim to offer you the best value for money.

How to take Vegan Protein

Anyone who excludes foods of animal origin should turn to nutritional supplements based on vegetable protein or vegan protein.

Following a vegan diet that meets your body's protein needs is essential for those who choose this option.

This is possible thanks to the incorporation of foods rich in this substance, and to the wide variety of animal protein-free supplements with a high protein content.

The secret is to know how to combine the different sources of vegetable protein to achieve total protein.

high protein content

Combining Vegetable Proteins

The aim is to obtain all essential amino acids through plant protein sources. Some plant protein sources are limited. It's a matter of knowing which plant protein sources contain what nutrients and supplementing them with other plant-based foods that do have what they’re lacking. And of course, it is essential to always follow the recommendations of specialists.

Frequently asked questions about Vegetable Proteins

The same as any person eating animal protein. According to the WHO: 0,8g/kg of lean weight.

For vegan athletes the amount increases to 1.3 - 1.8g per kg, and is recommended up to 2.5g for strength athletes and muscle hypertrophy. It all depends on your physical condition, the specific training you follow and the goals you have set for yourself.

Yes, our bodies only understand chemistry, and the necessary elements involved in protein synthesis and muscle tissue regeneration are amino acids, no matter where they come from.

Vegan protein shakes in supplement form, therefore, can help gain muscle mass just as much as animal-based ones.

There are many vegetables that you can combine to make your intake as complete as possible. You can, for example, add rice to your legume dishes, or add nuts, such as pumpkin seeds, to your rice salads. This way, you get vegan meals that are a source of protein.

Here are some examples:

VEGETAL (Protein supplementation)Examples
Legumes + whole grains:
  • Lentils with rice.
  • Couscous with chickpeas.
  • Chickpeas with wheat (food pasta).
  • Soy with rice.
  • Chickpeas with bread.
Nuts and seeds + seeds dairy products:
  • Oat or rice pudding with nuts.
Pulses + nuts:
  • Chickpeas with pine nuts.
  • Lentil salad with walnuts.
  • Hummus (mashed chickpeas with sesame seeds).
Whole grains + dairy vegetables:
  • Rice or oat with soy drink and nuts.
Nuts and seeds + whole grains:
  • Rice salad with nuts, pasta with walnuts.

You can meet your protein requirements with only vegan protein, just as you can with animal protein. You just need to combine the different sources to complete your vegan protein intake.

Yes, as long as you combine them to make up the full range of amino acids. Ideally, different vegan protein sources should be used, with the aim of building up a complete protein intake with supplements.

Whey protein is primarily whey, so it's not vegan. Supplements suitable for this type of diet are those made exclusively from vegan protein powder.

Vegetable proteins and sportsmen and women

Vegetable proteins and Athletes

The idea that muscle development and proper recovery isn’t possible without animal-based protein has long been debunked.

You’re bound to know athletes or people with an active lifestyle who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet.

The recommended protein intake is higher for those who do intense daily exercise, but you can still meet your body's needs with plant protein alone by ensuring you combine amino acids that promote muscle regeneration and growth.

Incomplete proteins?

Each of the families of vegetable proteins or vegan proteins has in its composition some amino acid in a smaller quantity than the rest, which is called a limiting amino acid. Here are some examples of foods: 

low in lysine, threonine and tryptophan

GRAINS ARE LOW IN LYSINE, THREONINE AND TRYPTOPHAN

low in methionine and tryptophan

LENTILS AND LEGUMES ARE LOW IN METHIONINE AND TRYPTOPHAN

low in methionine and isoleucine

VEGETABLES ARE LOW IN METHIONINE AND ISOLEUCINE

low in lysine and isoleucine

SEEDS AND NUTS ARE LOW IN LYSINE AND ISOLEUCINE

Even so, you can still guarantee your full intake of essential aminos and high biological value protein through specific food combinations. 

If you're vegetarian, but follow a lacto-ovo diet, where you still use eggs, milk and milk products, you won’t have any issues with the limiting. 

However, if you're vegan, you'll need to pay more attention to your diet and target certain foods to get all the amino acids. 

To do so, and to get a complete protein, you need to combine different sources of plant-based proteins.

The most vegan protein-rich foods

These are some of the key protein sources that can be combined, and which form the raw material for vegan supplements:

Soy- high in protein

Soy beans contain more than 34g of protein per 100g. The soya protein product is an excellent source derived from vegan soya beans. It is the strongest protein alternative to other types of products.

Soya is the vegetable food with the highest protein content.

It also provides nutrients such as flavonoids and isoflavonoids, phenolic acids, phytoalexins, phytosterols and saponins.

At HSN you can buy soy protein in different formats and flavours.

Peas

Peas are naturally higher in protein (20-25%) than sweet peas (5-6%).

Pea protein has a number of characteristics that make it a protein with a high daily nutritional value.

In addition, pea protein isolate is a 100% vegetable product that does not contain gluten or lactose, thus ensuring easy digestion and tolerance.

Pea protein is high in BCAAs, consisting of L-leucine, L-valine and L-isoleucine.

Peas - high nutritional value
Hemp - source of minerals

Hemp

Hemp seeds provide 25g of protein per 100g. It is rich in minerals: magnesium, iron, potassium and calcium, as well as a wide variety of trace elements.

It is also an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

It is considered one of the most complete proteins, as it contains eight essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own.

Hemp protein is an excellent alternative in good quantities for sportsmen and endurance athletes.

Rice

Rice provides 8g of protein per 100g of product and is a valuable source of amino acids and carbohydrates with a broad nutritional profile.

It has very good digestibility and is completely allergen-free.

Rice protein contains all the essential amino acids the body needs for optimal functioning. Also the mineral iron.

Rice - source of amino acids
Chickpea - high in protein

Chickpea

Each 100g of chickpeas provides more than 20g of protein. This is an important source of vegetable protein. In fact, protein makes up 22% of the chickpea's composition.

In addition, it is also a high source of carbohydrates and fibre; making it a perfect food for energy.

Chickpea protein is also renowned for its supply of vitamins B (B1, B2 and B9), C, E and K, as well as minerals such as calcium, zinc, magnesium, iron, potassium and phosphorus.

Beans

As well as being high in protein, it is also high in the amino acid lysine, making it a perfect protein source to mix with cereals.

If you choose to use beans as a protein source, we recommend that you use them in combination with other sources, as they are low in methionine and cysteine.

Each 100g of bean protein contains 81g of protein.

Beans - high nutritional value
Pumpkin - minerals and vitamins

Pumpkin

Each 100g of pumpkin seeds provides more than 18g of protein, but it must be taken into account that it is a food that provides many more nutrients than protein, offering a lower contribution of the latter, despite being a good alternative for those who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet.

Magnesium and calcium, as minerals, vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene, as well as antioxidants, are the other nutrients provided by a food such as pumpkin. 76% of pumpkin seed protein is protein.

Lentils

It provides up to 23g of protein per 100g of product, which makes it one of the most interesting options for vegans and vegetarians.

A source of carbohydrates, another of its main characteristics is its low fat content, which is practically non-existent.

Finally, it is considered a source of fibre, iron, potassium and folic acid. At HSN we have 100% lentil protein at an unbeatable price.
