Protein is an essential part of a healthy diet, and animal sources are the most common choice. However, plant protein powders have been increasing in popularity due to demand from vegetarians and health-conscious consumers looking for a better alternative.
Benefits of Plant Protein
In addition to the dietary restrictions of vegetarians, many people choose plant-based proteins instead of dairy-based powders, like whey or casein, due to lactose intolerance or sensitivity to dairy proteins. Different plant proteins include pea protein, sweet potato protein, and rice protein.
There are some major health benefits that are attached to plant-based protein powder, including:
- These powders are packed with fiber in addition to protein
- It takes longer to digest, boosting your metabolism
- Can accompany a healthy weight loss plan
- Less caloric than dairy protein powders

Plant Protein Market Trends
A large number of Americans are cutting back on meat consumption in order to reduce their intake of cholesterol and saturated fat. In fact, 31% of Americans say they occasionally like to have meat-free days. This health-consciousness has led to an increase in plant protein powders.
To fuel the plant protein powder industry, there has been an increasing interest in protein in general. Protein is associated with providing more energy, helping with weight management, and promoting satiety and building muscle mass. Millennials especially have been excited about the new protein trend.
