Plant Proteins Reduce Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

A new study from the University of Eastern Finland supports the growing evidence that the source of dietary protein may play a role in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The researchers found that plant protein was linked with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, while a diet rich in meat contributed to a higher risk. The findings were published in the British Journal of Nutrition. While the study noted that it was not certain kinds of meat that raised the risk, but meat eating in general. Nevertheless, it is not believed that the protein itself is the problem, but other compounds found in meat, such as the fat composition. All of this suggests that relying more on plant proteins, such as soy, is a wise nutrition strategy.

We offer a wide range of vegetable protein mixes that can be used in smoothies and cooking.
