Q. Is the sugar content in the Protein Shakes considered high?
A. Clinically tested by a third-party certifier and qualified as having a low glycemic index (27), the products have minimal impact on blood sugar level. They are low enough in sugar to help maintain a healthy blood sugar level. This is especially important for those who need to avoid high-sugar products or are following a weight-management regimen.
Q. What are the benefits of consuming a high-protein product?
A. Amino acids, including some branched chain amino acids, are the basic building blocks of proteins, which help support muscle, lean muscle mass, and even bone health. Dairy and soy proteins are considered common allergens, and soy protein can be a source of unwanted phytoestrogenic activity. Those following a vegan diet may need a high-protein product to get the necessary amount of protein, as fruits and vegetables are low in protein.
