The latest scoop on protein powders may leave you feeling a little suspicious of your supplements. Protein powders and drinks are a hot trend in fitness with research supporting their health and weight loss benefits. Unfortunately you may not be getting what you expect.
Consumer lab tested sixteen protein products and found problems with five of them. That’s thirty percent. Some had too little protein while others had more carbohydrates than listed, more cholesterol, or even lead contamination.
These products included some that coast up to five dollars a serving. I’ve talked a lot about how easy it is for consumers to be mislead by supplement labels and unscrupulous companies. So if protein products are a big part of your diet or health goals, I strongly advise you researching the brand you are buying. Your powder may not keep its promise.
