Nutritional Value

Nutritional Value
Category Average

60% of calories in this product come from protein content, which is below average in this category (Mean = 67%, Standard Deviation = 20%).

At 0.7g/serving, fat content falls significantly below the 44-78g/day Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range (AMDR)* for men and women over 19 years of age.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends minimal consumption of cholesterol while maintaining a nutritionally adequate diet. Generally, risk increases at any level above zero.

Consumption of added sugars should not exceed 5% of daily caloric intake, according to the World Health Organization’s 2014 draft guidelines. Assuming a 2000 calorie daily diet, a single serving of this product contributes 26.7% of the maximum daily recommendation.

At 51.2mg, a single serving provides 3.4% of the IOM-established Adequate Intake (AI) of sodium for men and women up to 50 years of age.

This product contains a small amount of calcium, with a single serving providing 3.9% of the minerals Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for men and women 19-50 years of age. It also contains small amounts of phosphorus but is not a significant source of other vitamins or minerals.

*The IOM has set the AMDR for fat to 20% to 35% of energy. The above values were calculated based on a 2000 calorie diet.

There is limited clinical evidence that it may trigger migraines in those who have previously suffered from migraines. Clinical study did not show any carcinogenic, reproductive, or neurological adverse effects.


Projected Efficacy

Projected Efficacy
Category Average

This protein product features the fast-digesting whey protein isolate, which is ideal for athletic recovery and muscle-building. This product contains 14.2% protein by concentration (4.7g/serving). This amount is expected to be minimally effective based on a 46-56g RDA (46g/day for women over the age of 14; 56g/day for men over the age of 19).

Whey protein has a number of expected health benefits, including good evidence supporting its use for muscle gain, weight loss, and blood sugar modulation. Whey protein sources may also provide appetite suppression and decreased cardiovascular disease risk; however, these benefits require further research. Other protein sources, such as casein and soy protein, may be more effective for the latter indications.
