TOP 5 COMPLETE PROTEIN SOURCES FOR VEGETARIANS

Vegetarians are wrongly believed to have to compromise on sources of protein. Read about top 5 complete vegetarian protein foods to correct your facts.

The whole idea that without egg whites and chicken breast, muscles can not be built is a misconception. People need only 1.5 g of protein per kg of body weight, which can be obtained from a vegetarian diet composed of nutritional complements, milk, nuts, soy and lentils.

So we at OMG LABS have curated a list of what we consider the best sources of protien for our vegetarian fans.

5. Lentils :

Lentils or daals as we tend to call them are powerhouses of proteins. The best part about lentils they combine generous protein doses with minerals and good fiber.  Lentils, enriched with soluble and insoluble fiber, keep the nutritional tract smooth. As a plant protein, lentils are short on methionine and cysteine, two essential amino acids. Both of these amino acids are discovered in grain abundance. It's no surprise that lentils are intuitively combined with grains, making them complete combinations of proteins just like meat, but vegetarian. Let's hit you up with some nutritional information.

Protein Profile per 100g of Lentils

  • Masur: 25.1g

  • Moong: 24.5g

  • Urad (Black gram): 24g

  • Rajma: 22.9g

  • Channa (roasted): 14g

  • Bengal gram: 17.1g

4. Soy :

Yay! soy! As we like to call it is high in protein and an alternative to lactose. The main advantages of soya are its elevated content of proteins, vitamins and minerals and insoluble fiber. Tofu or Bean curd is a derivative of soy and is readily accessible as the best recognized soy product. Tofu also has 24 g of unsaturated fats and a study discovered that when individuals ate unsaturated fats after exercise, the blood flow in their lungs increased by 45%, leading to quicker regeneration. Time for some figures.

Serving Size Variant Protein Calories
A cup (45g) Soya chunks 24g 160
A cup Soya milk 11g 127
100g Tofu 48g 480

 
 
3.  Milk :

Milk yes, milk is an outstanding source of high-quality protein that makes it almost an entire diet. The great thing about milk protein is that it is rich in lysine, making it an optimal accompaniment for whole grains and their products, many of which are small in this essential amino acid. Caution: this information that we are sharing will bring all the boys to your yard.

Whether you are taking full fat, low fat or non-fat milk, your protein content remains at 8 g or higher in a cup of milk including 18 essential and non-essential amino acids, only the calorie count changes.

2. OMG LABS: Whey Lite:

Whey lite is our patented filtered whey which can be given to anyone who wants to meet the basic protein requirement in a day. It has 60% protein in it. It is for anyone with an active lifestyle.
