Does Organic Plant Protein contains lectins?

That is a great question! 🌱

Lectins are naturally occurring proteins that are found in most plants.
Because we source the main ingredients of our Organic Plant Protein from whole plant foods (sunflower, pumpkin, and pea) they do contain lectins. 😊

Are Lectins unhealthy?

Foods that contain lectins are not necessarily all bad for your health. While it’s true that eating too many foods with lectins can cause adverse effects on health, lectins also play many vital roles within the body. Lectins are also involved in immune regulation, and some research indicates that they may have antimicrobial properties as well. Not only that, but some studies also show that certain lectins could even possess anticancer properties too.
