Protein Powders: How to Choose a Good One!

I get tons of questions on protein powders... should you use them and if so, which ones? When it comes to protein powder, they absolutely are not all created equal.

The Clean Label Project is an organization committed to sharing food and supplement data for consumers to make educated decisions on what they are buying. The clean label project tested 134 protein powder products for contaminants such as lead, arsenic, cadmium, and BPA in the products.
