Abstract: Most people get all the protein they need from whole foods. A protein powder supplement may be warranted if you’re an avid athlete or have trouble eating a balanced diet. Whey and soy are favored protein powders because they deliver all the essential amino acids your body needs, blend well into smoothies and digest readily. Egg protein powders and vegan options can offer many of the same benefits, though, without the lactose and soy. You may be surprised to learn, too, that whey and casein are often nearly lactose-free, despite being derived from milk.
