Tofu, chicken, beef, fish, lentils – what do these foods have in common? They’re all delicious sources of protein!
Protein is an essential nutrient required by the body to stay healthy and strong. It’s possible to fulfil your protein requirements through your diet but it takes careful planning and preparation because not all sources of dietary protein are created equal.
Tofu and lentils are good sources of protein but they need to be eaten in large quantities. On the other hand, chicken, beef, and other meats have higher protein concentration but eating too much of them daily might not be beneficial to your health – no thanks to cholesterol.
So, how can you make sure that you are meeting your protein needs every day, no matter what you have for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
Well, this is where protein powders can come in handy.
No, not at all. Protein powders are great for people from all walks of life, from kids, young adults to folks enjoying their golden years.
Protein is an essential nutrient for the body, no matter your age. Just like a strong foundation supports a house, proteins are the building blocks of the body. It is needed to create new replacement tissue and to help hair, nails, muscles, tissues, and bones to grow strong and healthy. Without sufficient protein, the body starts to weaken, just like a house without a solid foundation can crumble.
What’s more, some essential proteins are not produced by the body, so they must come from diet, or be supplemented daily with alternative sources such as protein powders.
Protein powders help you fill the protein gaps in your daily requirements by providing complete proteins in an easy-to-consume beverage or if you’re feeling creative, can be added to baked goods and cooked meals.

Each serving gives you all nine essential amino acids required by the body and the formula has a Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score of one (PDCAAS =1) – this means that the proteins and amino acids are of the highest quality, and they are easily digested by the body.
