FAQsReviewed by our Nutrition Team
Plant-based proteins are the ideal alternatives for vegans and dairy-intolerant people who are looking to increase their protein intake for health and/or training. The most obvious benefit of plant-based proteins is that plant-based proteins are derived only from plants and therefore doesn’t involve any animal by-products or produce. Plant-based proteins are also hypoallergenic, which means your gut is very unlikely to have a negative reaction. True Vegan 85 is an innovative tri-blend of pea, pumpkin and brown rice proteins.
Vegan 85 protein powder is a smooth tri-blend made from pumpkin, pea and brown rice. The ingredients are entirely plant-based and free from animal origin. Similar to whey protein but instead of milk, plants are dried down and filtered several times until they are a fine powder. The end result is a concentrated source of protein that is suitable for those following a plant-based diet. You can learn more about this lifestyle through our guide to plant-based diets.
In the True range, Vegan 85 is the most suitable choice for those who follow a vegan diet, but of course, anyone can take it. Those who are lactose intolerant or have difficulty digesting whey protein may find they prefer vegan protein as it simply ‘agrees’ with them better.
Brown rice, pea and pumpkin proteins were chosen for the Vegan 85 blend due to their naturally high protein content. These three ingredients together form a complete source of essential amino acids, making the Vegan 85 comparable in protein content to a whey protein powder.
Once filtered into a powder, the majority of the carbohydrates, fats and sugars are stripped away, leaving a concentrated source of protein.
Like all our protein powders, Vegan 85 is made with only natural ingredients. In the nutritional information, you will find only a shortlist of premium ingredients used to make this delicious blend. Every flavour is made using 100% natural ingredients including the likes of organic cinnamon, freeze-dried fruits and natural cocoa.
Vegan 85 is comparable to True’s whey protein in both protein and amino acid content. The tri-blend contains all 9 essential amino acids, making it a complete source of protein with up to 25g of protein per serving.

Though a little more thought and planning can be required, a high protein diet is certainly achievable for those following a vegan diet. Be sure to eat protein-rich ingredients and snacks throughout the day to ensure your body can absorb the nutrients.
Think nutritious wholefoods like nuts, seeds, legumes, beans, tofu, seitan, quinoa, hummus, oats, soy milk and protein-rich vegetables like broccoli and potatoes.
