5 of the Best Protein Powders

5 of the Best Protein Powders

Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Our skin, hair and nails are made mostly from protein and optimising your intake is key when looking to lose weight, or maintain a healthy weight. Protein powders can be a valuable addition to your diet – gone are the days when protein shakes were just for body builders. They are particularly valuable for vegetarians and vegans.

 

But not all protein powders are created equal with many containing synthetic additives, unnecessary sugars and a long list of other nasties. Finding a good quality protein supplement can be a minefield. Here, we share with you five of the best protein powders we have found.

 

PULSIN’S RICE PROTEIN

 
Main ingredient = Brown Rice Protein Concentrate

Simplicity is key with Pulsin’s protein powders; their rice protein powder is made purely from brown rice. This makes for a really plain-tasting protein that can be added to savoury dishes like vegetable soups as well as smoothies. It offers great value for money, too.
