Muscle-building shakes may have less protein than claimed
Weight trainers and sportspeople often supplement their diets with protein shakes or bars, but a study has found that, when it comes to shakes, protein claims are often exaggerated.
Protein supplements have become a widely popular way for avid gym-goers to pump extra protein into their bodies and bump up their muscles.
Much debate about protein supplements
Protein is essential for the overall health of the body, building and repairing its tissues and balancing the levels of energy, hormones and many other chemicals. It’s also central in building muscles – often the attraction for its use in body building and fitness products.
Ideally men should get about 56g of protein a day for their normal body processes to continue. Women, it is recommended, should have about 46g of protein.
There has been much debate around people pumping protein supplements into their bodies. Some research suggests that people who are undergoing muscle-building training need higher quantities of protein to support maximum muscle growth. But there is no scientific agreement that these people really need to consume more protein than the recommended dietary allowance.
Yet weight trainers and sportspeople often supplement their diets with protein shakes or bars. This could be due to their convenience – they cost less than meat products with the same protein content, and they allow for optimal protein intake without excessive consumption of carbohydrates or fats.
But our study has found that, when it comes to protein shakes, what is in the tub is not always what meets the eye. Close to 10% of protein shakes evaluated on the market had less than 60% of the amount of protein consumers were paying for.
