Some of you might have noticed something called bone broth in the stores. It is promoted for all sorts of benefits. We believe that bone broth provides little or no benefit in most of the benefit categories claimed. Here’s why: it appears to have a very low protein quality score.
A couple of years ago, we sent a sample of bone broth powder from a popular brand to Covance, the leading nutritional assay lab at the time.For the sample they tested, they calculated that the PDCAAS protein quality score was only 19 out of 100, a very low score.
That is what we expected because most of its protein is collagen protein. Collagen protein alone usually has a PDCAAS score of zero.
So if someone claims that a product “supports” muscle building, that doesn’t promise much. You can lean a toothpick against an elephant and say it supports the elephant. Maybe it does. But not much.
UNJURY® Protein powder, including our Chicken Soup Flavor, uses whey protein isolate as our protein source. It is top quality whey protein isolate, and it has a PDCAAS score of 100 out of 100. That’s what you want protein for. Moreover, whey protein is unsurpassed for leucine, which is central to building muscle. You cannot do better than UNJURY Protein.
