When you start looking for a protein powder, it is important that you choose one that is as clean as possible. Our guide below, helps you find the ideal powder for your needs.
Whey protein is definitely a good choice for the base, as it is pure organic and grass-fed. If you are not too fond of dairy, then you could choose to find something that is more vegan friendly.
You could also choose to find a blend based on pea protein. It is a vegetable source of protein and is extremely rich in essential amino acids. It is easily digestible, get absorbed easily and are also well tolerated by most people.
Flavors And Sweeteners:
You will find a host of powders out there, there are mainly three types, as follows according to flavours and sweeteners used:
a) Powders that are completely artificial or those that are a combination of natural and artificial sweeteners and flavours
b) Powders that are made using only natural sweeteners
c) Powders that are made without any added flavouring or sweeteners
Ideally you should choose powders that have been made without any artificial flavoring or you should choose to use powders that do not use sweeteners or flavoring at all for greatest benefit.
What else is there?
Besides the basic protein, flavors and sweeteners, manufactures tend to use a host of other ingredients to enhance the flavors of the powder. While some of the ingredients tend to add value in terms of health, the others just add value in terms of taste. These include: digestive enzymes, prebiotic fibers, glutamine, vitamins and minerals and others.
