Just two short years ago, there were only a few choices in the plant protein supplement market. With plant forward ideas everywhere, there is huge interest and proliferation in plant protein supplements.
Initially, most supplements utilized pea protein as the protein source. However, now there is a wide variety of protein sources ranging from grains (eg, buckwheat, amaranth), seeds (eg, pumpkin, hemp, flax), pseudo-grains (eg, quinoa), and/or brown rice. Here are just a sampling:

Health Warrior Superfood Protein + Probiotics
Vega Sport Premium Protein
Orgain Organic Protein & Chia Seeds Protein Powder
Sunwarrior Protein Warrior Blend
ALOHA Organic Plant-Based Protein Powder
