What's The Difference Between Whey And Pea Protein?

By Katrina Scott on

You know we choose the BEST, highest-quality ingredients for your Tone It Up Protein — and we went through a lot of testing and trials to get it just right. When it comes to protein, there are a lot of different types, so today we’re breaking down some of the options, the main differences, and what your TIU protein is made of. Only the best for this team!

What’s Not In Your Protein:

Whey Protein

Whey protein is a by-product of dairy production. It’s made by heating cow’s milk and filtering the liquid portion from the curds that form. Then, the liquid whey is dried and formed into a powder. Because whey is derived from dairy, we’ve found that it can cause bloating. We also wanted to choose a protein that works for vegan girls and those with dairy intolerances.

Which brings us to…

What Is In Your Protein:

Tone It Up Protein is made with a blend of pea and pumpkin seed protein!

Pea Protein

Our pea protein is made by extracting protein from yellow split peas. It’s entirely plant-based, so it’s amazing for everyone. Some of the other perks

✓ Naturally gluten-free

✓ Dairy-free

✓ Rich in iron, which supports a healthy immune system

✓ Pea protein is one of the few plant-based complete proteins, which means it contains all 9 of the essential amino acids the body needs (your bod doesn’t produce these on its own). Getting these amino acids is KEY to forming lean muscle, boosting your metabolism, and recovering post-workout.

✓ Delicious, smooth taste!

Tone It Up Protein Powder is healthy, delicious, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and non-GMO.

Pumpkin Seed Protein

Pumpkin seed protein is made from, you guessed it, pumpkin seeds, and it’s also completely plant-based. Plus…

✓ Naturally gluten-free

✓ Dairy-free

✓ Amazing source of vitamin E and magnesium

✓ Rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids

✓ It’s also a complete protein!

✓ And of course that delicious taste!

This combo makes the most nutrient-packed, clean, and best-tasting protein! Stock up today!
