Whey-Purer & DeepLeaf Protein
With DEEPLEAF™ plant-based blends our goal is to provide products with a protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) of 1 - the same level of a high quality whey protein isolate. A protein with a PDCAAS of 1 must provide per unit of protein 100% or more of the essential amino acids required after digestion - essentially a measure of the quality of the protein. PDCAAS score of 1 is a high protein quality; PDCAAS scores of less than 1 have inferior quality. High quality proteins are important to support optimum skeletal muscle health.
Other than soybeans, single plant-based proteins alone do not deliver PDCAAS's of 1. In order to achieve them requires the blending of different plant-based proteins - like we chose to do with a blend of Pea Protein Isolate and Canola Protein Isolate - both exceptional protein sources, but only together can they deliver the desired PDCAAS of 1.
