The protein wars seem to be in full swing. Whey protein supplements have had a stranglehold on the market for decades, but other sources are cropping up for a host of reasons. From beef, chicken, and fish to rice, hemp, and peas, protein manufacturers are now offering many types of protein supplements to choose from, and the public is starting to take notice. Whether you have food sensitivities, demand higher quality products, or make your choices based on taste, the field has grown and some new kids have moved in on the block. Plant-based protein is one source that has turned many heads.
