Most protein powders on the market are not certified organic, nor are they Non-GMO Project Verified. That means all of them might contain GMOs and most definitely contain pesticides that are considered harmful and potentially toxic with long-term exposure. This increased exposure is linked to birth defects, nerve damage, and even cancer.
Protein powder, from milk whey or from plants, if processed under good sanitary conditions should be good for human and animal consumption. In its raw form, you need to drink milk, eat cheeses, yogurt, steaks, beans, sprouts. It’s about convenience, speexd, and hability to cook.
The reputation of a protein powder brand is purely built by the feedback it receives from its users. Especially true in today’s day and age of social media.
- Check out the feedback on several brands.
- See which one has a decent rating and also fits your budget.
- Buy the smallest available size of that brand
- See if you like it and if your body responds well to it.
- If yes, then continue, if not, then repeat the whole process until you find a protein powder that is good for you.
If it pure protein powder, without sugar, fillers, and other additives, it is good for you. It doesn’t matter if you workout or not, if you can’t meet your protein requirement, you should take protein. It must be clearly understood that protein powder is not a replacement for real food.
