Soy Protein is the Better Choice
Providing the best for your family is not an easy task especially when it comes to choosing healthy and delicious food or beverage for the whole family. The task gets more complicated with hundreds of products on the market shelves, blurring our sights with flashy and confusing labels with added food colouring and preservatives. Fret not as we help you narrow down five tips to pick the right source of protein.
Plant vs animal-based?
Both plant and animal-based sources contain similar protein content. However, animal-based sources such as red meat or other poultry may contain harmful chemicals and diseases, and may be more difficult to digest, especially among the elderly. If you don’t or can’t eat whole food, you can opt for plant-based protein powder to fill in the nutritional gap.
High vs low level of cholesterol content?
Sources such as red meat, poultry, eggs and dairy may contain a high level of cholesterol, increasing your health risks. Substitute these with plant-based protein which contains zero cholesterol to help you lower your cholesterol levels.
High vs low level of fat content?
While poultry contains saturated and transfat, plant-based proteins are free of them. So fill up on beans, lentils, tofu and whole grains to meet protein requirements without excessive fat.
Natural vs processed source?
Whenever possible, get your protein in its natural state as processed food may lose its nutrient content. But when you can’t or don’t get enough protein from your diet, you can opt for a high-quality protein powder that gives you all the essential amino acids and calcium for strong bones and teeth.
GMO vs Non-GMO?
