A new study to test the effectiveness of plant-based proteins in supporting muscle health has been launched by the University of Birmingham and sports nutrition firm, Myprotein.
The study will test Myprotein’s THE Plant blended plant protein supplement against other protein powders, including animal-based and single-source plant, to measure how well it supports muscle health against three key standards.
The standards it will be measured against are: how it is digested and absorbed into the blood stream; how it supports muscle recovery after an intense session of strength training; and how it bolsters muscle growth in strength training over a period of several months.
An increasing number of consumers turning to plant-based alternatives, as well as the lack of understanding on how those products perform in the area of muscle building and recovery was the catalyst for this study, according to Leigh Breen, of the University’s School of Sport Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences.
