Although not vegan, I noticed it was a bit of pain to find a simple amino acid profile when researching similar for plant proteins. So I put together this page, plus it’s nice to compare whey to other protein sources.
The graph below was generated using our amino acid profile comparison tool, it shows a typical amino acid profile for whey. Essential amino acids have a little asterisk next to their names.
In case you prefer table form, here is the same data again:
|% of total amino acids|
Whey is essentially the gold standard when it comes to animal proteins, and proteins in general. It contains solid quantities of all the amino acids.
