Protein supplementation in sport nutrition is of common use. Today, alternatives to animal protein are a matter of concern from sustainable, ethical, and nutritional perspectives. The vegetable pea protein NUTRALYS® displays a very good digestibility of 97% and a high PDCAAS of 93% and therefore can be a good candidate for nutrition supplementation in sport.
The current study aims at comparing the respective impacts of supplementations either with NUTRALYS® pea protein or with whey proteins on muscles.
The very good digestibility of NUTRALYS® pea protein but also its richness in arginine as well as its intermediate fast kinetic of digestion might explain the very promising results in sport nutrition.
