Nutritionally, fava beans and therefore fava bean protein, which is made mostly from fava beans, are an excellent source of protein and nutrients. They are vegan, GMO free and free of common allergens.
Unlike other plant proteins, fava beans are a complete protein and are packed full of essential amino acids making it great for muscle growth and development.
Fava bean protein is around 85 per cent protein in its raw form, making it particularly great for vegans and others who struggle to get enough protein into their diet.
Fava bean naturally contains an array of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B, Manganese, Folate, Calcium, and Selenium.
One of the key benefits of fava bean proteins over many other plant-based protein powders, is its high bioavailability, low fats and carbohydrates levels and its smooth texture. Fava bean protein is less grainy and more pleasant to the palate compared to other plant proteins.
Fava bean protein also increases satiety levels in the body meaning you’ll feel fuller for longer,making it a great plant based choice to support weight loss.
Fava Bean can be enjoyed on its own in water or with milk of choice as a high protein beverage and works perfectly as a booster to smoothies. It is particularly stable when heated, so it can also be incorporated as a high protein, vegan alternative when cooking to enrich recipes.
We use Australian Fava Bean as one of our key Fava Bean sources.
