Nutritional supplements are not tested for accuracy of ingredients, safety or potency by any regulatory body.  There are a few third party companies that will test supplements for the items listed above.  These companies include NSF, Informed Choice and Consumerlab.com.  It is important that you take a supplement from a reputable company for your safety.

Whey protein is the protein best utilized by the body and is a complete protein containing all of the essential amino acids your body needs.  Egg protein is also a complete protein.  Other proteins are available such as soy, hemp, rice, and pea proteins. These other proteins are not as well utilized by the body and other changes may need to be made in your eating plan to ensure adequate nutritional intake. Please talk with your Registered Dietitian if you have questions about the type of protein you are using.

Whey protein isolate is recommended because it contains minimal amounts of lactose and fat.

**Please read product labels for the serving size to meet 20 g of protein as products change**
