Before talking about powders and protein-laden snacks that help exercisers and bodybuilders, you should understand what the benefits of protein are and what the recommended amount of protein is. “The minimum recommended amount for healthy people and without background illnesses is 0.8 kg per kilogram of body weight,” says Alex Shchukin, a B.Sc RD clinical dietitian at Heli Maman, a network that specializes in a healthy lifestyle. “C will be 64 grams of protein a day.”

Today, professionals recommend that trainees in various sports consume twice the amount of protein recommended by the RDA to allow for increased muscle mass, increased calorie burning and energy expenditure. Higher protein intake than RDA recommendations is good for competitive athletes, gym trainees or those who stick to outdoor sports activities. Young people and those who adhere to a training routine need 25-20 grams of quality protein after training to ensure assistance in increasing muscle building the day after.

“There are several types of protein powders when the source of the protein varies. The most popular WHEY protein, casein, proteins from plant sources such as soy and peas as well as BCAA supplements are supplements that contain a high amount of essential amino acids. WHEY proteins are proteins with high biological value,” she explains. Shchukin.

“It is important to say that from a research point of view, there is no advantage of protein powders of various types over the consumption of proteins from food,” says Shchukin. “Therefore, one should consider the type of protein, whether there is a Ministry of Health approval, in addition note that most protein powders also have sugars to make the drink or snack tastier so the recommendation is to purchase a protein that has high protein content compared to competitors per gram.”
