Do You Know The Protein Content Of Your Protein... I Mean Really?

FACT-OF-THE-DAY-logo

When trying to understand the percent of protein found in your protein shake, take a look at the grams of protein per 100g. Yes, a standard serving of a whey protein (for example) is usually around the 35- 40g of powder mark, but the number of grams of protein per 100g will indicate the total percent of protein per tub of protein. Look at this figure, and shoot for a protein that is at least 60g protein per 100g, and ideally anything around the 70- 80g mark if you want a protein that’ll leave you looking lean! For example, a protein that has 80g protein per 100g means the protein powder is an 80% blend.
