Read your ingredient List

Look at quality: when looking for a protein powder remember that quality is what matters. You don’t want to choose a powder that is loaded with unwanted extras or things you don’t even know how to spell. Bottom line the fewer the ingredients the better.

Look for unwanted sugars/sugar: Look at your ingredient list if sugar is the first, second, or third ingredient its probably going to be loaded with it. Be aware of different types of sugars ( maltodextrin, dextrin, dextrose, cane sugar, anything ending in ose, etc.) Don’t forget to look for the artificial sugars as well ( sucralose, acesulfame, and aspartame.) If you need a flavored powder try to stick with ones sweetened with stevia.

Healthfully Yours,
