Power of Protein: Quality Matters!

Protein is naturally found in a variety of animal and plant foods. But did you know not all protein is created equal?
  • High-quality proteins are those that provide all the essential amino acids the body needs to function properly. Foods vary in their protein quality, as not all proteins are equivalent sources of essential amino acids.

  • Whey protein, a high-quality protein naturally found in milk, is one of the best sources of essential amino acids for a relatively modest amount of calories.

  • Some experts recommend eating 20-30g of high-quality protein at each meal to help build a higher protein diet to support weight management, active lifestyles and healthy aging.1-4 Research shows that ~10-15 grams of essential amino acids per meal, including ~2-3 grams of leucine, can help rebuild muscle.
