Protein – Powders and Bars

It’s important to get enough protein in your diet, but there’s no need to exceed the recommended amount. Vegans might want to incorporate protein powder and nutritional bars into their diets if they need more protein to reach their target number. Protein powders and bars can also be helpful for athletes, including growing teens, people starting a new workout program or amping up a program, and those recovering from sports injuries.

Which should you choose?   Most protein powders are whey, soy, or casein based.  Whey and casein are dairy based, so vegans and those allergic to dairy will want to loo for soy or plant-based powder.
