Shopping for Protein: Look Out for 4 Things

Shopping for Protein: Look Out for 4 Things

It’s a protein jungle out there. 

You’ve seen it, aisles full of products promising to restore your skin, hair, energy and more.  There are a delirious number of choices when it comes to protein, but few of them are truly up to the job of restoring your health.

Your dietitian should provide guidance on what to look for and what to avoid when purchasing a protein supplement, but nutrition labels can be overwhelming as you try to weed through the industry jargon.

UNJURY® has been immersed in the protein world for over 20 years, and work with some of the best people in the business, so we consider protein an area of expertise.

If you want to avoid the labeling tricks, hype verbiage, and deceptive claims, here are some tips that can help.

When you are shopping for protein, look out for these 4 things:

  1. Protein Blends – When a company uses the term “propriety protein blend” instead of telling you what’s actually in the product, it’s usually because they have combined a little bit of whey protein with a bunch of lower quality proteins to save money.
  2. Collagen – Collagen is an incomplete protein. It is missing one essential amino acid, tryptophan, which your body needs to make Serotonin and Melatonin.
  3. Don’t Confuse Cheap with Good Value – Cheap protein is made from cheap ingredients.  Spending money on a product that doesn’t provide the nutritional support that you need to meet your health goals is not good value. Your health is too important, and good health outcomes are worth the investment in quality products.
  4. Don’t Settle for “Just OK” Taste – Protein taste is linked to protein quality.  Quality Tastes Better.™  Don’t settle for a protein product that you don’t like.  Try UNJURY®, it’s the highest quality protein you can buy, and it really does taste great.  No aftertaste, grit or clumps, just delicious shakes and soups that we know you’re going to love.
