£25 Ve­gan­ism is on the up with the mar­ket for meat-free foods worth £572mil­lion in 2017. The pro­gres­sive Tim Law­son, founder of Se­cret Train­ing and formerly of SiS, has tapped into this grow­ing de­mand with this re­cov­ery drink prod­uct de­liv­er­ing a text­book 20g of pro­tein with ev­ery serv­ing, as well as 19.5g carbs and 1.3g of fat for a 170cal hit. Be­ing ve­gan, the tra­di­tional whey pro­tein’s been re­placed with a pea and rice pro­tein mix. Yes, carb-heavy rice ac­tu­ally fea­tures around 10% pro­tein, which is sep­a­rated, pow­dered and used to stim­u­late mus­cle pro­tein syn­the­sis. The pea ad­di­tion pro­vides the miss­ing es­sen­tial amino acids, but there’s def­i­nitely a hint of pea through the mint choc. Some will en­joy it, oth­ers will con­sume purely for mus­cle re­pair. The bag comes with a neat clip-clo­sure to re­tain fresh­ness.
