Protein powders are used as a part of the diet to help meet individual protein requirements. Despite not being needed, they are very convenient. You need to be on top of your supplement knowledge though. A lot of shiesty protein supplement companies have been cutting your protein powder like cheap dope. Here’s how…
Check out your protein powder labels and read the ingredient portion very carefully. If your protein powder has special added ingredients such as taurine, glycine, creatine, or other non-protein ingredients then it’s likely your protein powder has been spiked. Supplement companies use cheap, non-protein amino acids to boost the nitrogen content of the protein powder to pass a test making it seem as if the product has more protein than it actually does. Yeah, it’s a pretty slick move but you’d never know because the fancy label listed all of the added ingredients as special features!
So what do you do about it? Look for protein brands that list ONLY the protein product itself plus whichever sweeteners you prefer to see on your label. That’s it. Here is a very BRIEF list of brands that produce protein powders I’d recommend in no particular order:
3. Trutein (whey, casein, and egg blend)
4. JYM Supplement Science Pro JYM (whey, casein, egg, and milk protein isolate blend)
