After reading this post below, I bet you will never look at protein powders the same. A story like this from an individual is very common among other foods as well. I am sure you all hear what kind of dead animals or human saliva ends up in fast food. There are ways to avoid this from happening but it is up to you to make the change in your life. Please read this story and comment on what you think about it.
“Years ago, I started adding a very delicious vanilla whey protein to my smoothies that I got from GNC. I was religious about using this one brand, and when they suddenly discontinued it, I became outraged! I called every GNC in town searching high and low for it. It was the best tasting whey protein on the market and I didn’t want to go on a hunt for another kind. Well… long story short, I got to the bottom of why they discontinued it – the health department found rat droppings in samples of the protein at the manufacturing plant! WHAT. I’d been drinking rat droppings for all those years? @#$%&%&*^%^$$!”
I started doing and Plant Based, Organic, GMO-Free, Unprocessed protein a little over 2 years ago. This story is just one reason why that change was important to me. The other factors are the words in the ingredient list in most commercial protein powders are very hard to pronounce. Can you imagine what they do to your insides. CRAZY!
The key to finding a high quality protein powder is figuring out the right questions to ask…. Is it organic and free of pesticides? Is it GMO free? How is it processed? Does the processing retain it’s nutritional quality, vitamins and minerals? Does it contain artificial or refined sugars? Do they have heavy metals?
Yes…I said heavy metals. Check out his article in Consumer Reports, where an eye-opening investigation that revealed that several popular highly processed protein powders like Myoplex, Muscle Milk, Designer Whey and GNC brand all contained arsenic, cadmium, and lead. Yikes.
This is just another reason why it is incredibly important to know what you are buying, where it is from and how it is produced.
