Protein Powders: Not All Are Created Equal
Always read the label – here’s what you may not know about many mass market protein blends
Protein powders are an incredible and very popular supplement. Protein helps you get fit, build lean muscle, manage your weight and gives you energy to power through your day. They can even assist in regulating blood pressure, help reduce inflammation and support diabetes management!
But the fitness and nutritional supplement industry is crowded with products all boasting to be the best, and it can be confusing to know where to begin. So lets found out a bit more about protein powders and what to look out for.
Not all protein powders are healthy
At 180 Nutrition, we believe protein powders should only contain natural, pure ingredients, completely free of all fillers, thickeners, sugars & preservatives. They should contain essential micro nutrients, antioxidants and fibre to assist metabolic rates and keep your digestive system functioning at optimum levels.
However, many popular supplements tell a different story. We compared the ingredients of 180 Nutrition Superfood Protein Blend with a current top selling nutritional supplement, and the difference even shocked us!
This is how our ingredients stack up to the top-selling product:
|180 Superfood Protein Blend||Brand X (Current Top Seller)|
|Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate||Whey Protein Isolate|
|Cocoa||Whey Protein Concentrate|
|Organic Flaxseeds||Calcium Caseinate|
|Almond Meal||Micellar Casein|
|Sunflower Seeds||Milk Protein Isolate|
|Organic Coconut Flour||Egg Albumen|
|Organic Sesame Seeds||Glutamine Peptides|
|Chia Seeds||Sunflower Oil|
|Psyllium Husks||Corn Syrup Solids|
|Stevia Leaf||Sodium Caseinate|
|Natural & Artificial Flavours|
|Medium Chain Triglycerides|
|Non-Fat Dry Milk|
|Cocoa Powder Processed with Alkali|
So, why are fillers bad for you and why do brands pack their products with so many?
Fillers are used to bulk out supplements and make them look, feel and taste better. The colour may be brighter, the taste may be sweeter and the texture may be smoother. But to do that, they add chemicals, artificial colours and flavourings, leaving less room for the healthy stuff. Some people can even react badly to these additions. Worse still, many fillers are not stated and the recipients side-effects are unknown.
