How to choose right the protein for you!

There’s so many different proteins on the market now. If you’re looking to up your protein to the recommendation amount, you might be thinking about adding in a protein shake or a protein bar. How do you choose which one will work best for you?

Protein powders are mostly derived from animals or plants, such as milk, eggs, rice, or peas. There are three common forms:

  • Protein Concentrate: Concentrated protein is produced by extracting protein from whole foods using heat plus acid or enzymes. Protein concentrate supplements are usually about 60 to 80 percent of protein.
  • Protein Isolate: An additional filtering process removes more fat and carbs, further concentrating the protein. Protein isolate powders contain about 90–95 percent protein.
  • Protein Hydrolysate: Produced by further processing with heat, acid, and/or enzymes, breaking the bonds between amino acids. Hydrolysates are absorbed more quickly by your body and muscles.
