Keeping in theme with last weeks blog post on Protein! I thought I’d provide you guys with a little insight into the world of protein powders!
What are Protein Powders?
Protein powders are dietary supplements that contain a high percentage of protein. This protein is derived from a variety of different food sources, including:
Along with the raw form of protein, many company fortify their products with vitamins, minerals, greens, additional fats, grains, fibre and/or thickeners. So although protein powders come directly from whole food sources, they’re not whole foods themselves.
For Vegetarians and vegans, rice and pea isolate proteins are powerful on their own. But mixed together, they're the first vegetarian protein that can compete with animal-derived proteins and meet the demands of hard-training athletes!
