What Does Quest Protein Powder Contain?
Every serving of this supplement contains 23 grams of protein from whey and casein. These proteins are derived from milk. Research finds these proteins very effective for building muscle, keeping you full, eliminating cravings, and keeping your immune system strong.
Why Use Whey And Casein Protein
Whey and casein each has their own benefits. Whey protein is digested very quickly (less than an hour) and is rich in BCAAs, the building blocks of new muscle. These attributes helps your body quickly get what it needs to recover post-workout, repair and build muscle, and even lose excess belly fat.
Casein is digested much slower, often over several hours. This helps your muscles continue to get the nutrients they need for optimal performance throughout the day. This means your body will spend the day building and getting stronger instead of breaking itself down for energy.
What Other Added Ingredients Does Quest Nutrition Protein Contain
The only other things added to this supplement are flavors and a little stevia and Sucralose. There are no added fillers, sugars, or vitamins and minerals. Many other products contain them which is why we don’t sell them. All these ingredients do is waste your money, rob you of results, and make your shakes taste like a wet sock!
Remember, you’re not drinking a protein shake to feel bloated and lethargic like you do after a soda or Starbucks black and white latte. You don’t need another substandard dose of cheap vitamins a minerals either. You want high quality protein that tastes great and makes a difference in your performance. That’s exactly what you get from this product.
How Does Quest Protein Taste?
In a word, awesome! I know this may seem like an exaggeration, but it’s not. These protein shakes taste like the desserts they’re imitating.
Whether you try Chocolate Milkshake, Cookies & Cream, Peanut Butter, or one of the other flavors, you won’t be disappointed. They’re all creamy, rich, and don’t leave a nasty aftertaste in your mouth like many protein shakes I’ve tried.
As an added flavor bomb, Quest adds small pieces of fruit, cinnamon, etc., depending on the flavor to every shake. This gives you a little something to chew on as you drink it and makes your shake taste and feel like a meal. They’re small pieces so you don’t have to chew, but it’s a nice option to have for a little more flavor and pleasure.
