    Hi guys.

    Thanks.

    Is there any particular reason you think you need protein powder?

    You can get enough protein in a vegan diet.

    I would avoid protein powder if possible. I worked in research for 3 years for a major protein and supplement producer. You wouldn't believe the amount of crap in non-vegan powder but unfortunately the vegan powder was always the worst due to antibiotics and heavy metals in soil.
    'antibiotics and heavy metals'?

    As far as I can see none tested have unsafe levels, do you know of any that do?

    OP, really a personal thing, I just uses plain, some use flavoured. You can add it to porridge, smoothues, water, plant milk.

    I dont bother with them and can bench 100kg and weigh 85kg! Maybe its just me but I think the whole protein powder industry is a bit of a sham.

    Just unflavoured soy/pea/hemp (lower protein) from myprotein.ie or bulkpowders.ie. Soy is best for absorption. You really want to be lifting a lot to need them. More protein (to a certain amount) will just make you grow muscles faster, that's it really. Some people just eat a ton of food focusing on things like legumes/seitan/tofu etc.

    I used the Bulk powders vegan powders when I was weight training a lot. I found them good value. Not sure how shipping and charges will be effected with brexit though.
