Spirulina vs famous Protein Powders – Nutritional analysis

Nutrient Profile Analysis

combopic

We at New Age Nutrition decided to delve into the nutrient profiles and look at the variances in vitamin and mineral provisions between some of the popular sources of Protein readily available.
There are protein powders coming from a variety of sources such as whey, soy, rice, pea, hemp, Spirulina, and more. Our Team decided to look at some of these more readily available ones and point out a few of the differences that may not initially jump out at you at first when comparing the products based on the kilojoules / calories vs protein ratio

It is well regarded that some of the cheap protein powders on the market are highly processed, and it is in these products that there can be traces of heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury, at levels that are not ideal to be ingesting into our bodies.

There are also differences in the amino acid profiles for those looking at a protein powder from the stand point of modifying their body composition (which we would guess many people are, irrespective of the motive coming from wanting fat loss for fitness, health or aesthetic purposes), however we will leave the in-depth discussion of this to come from a registered dietician.

 

NUTRITIONAL RESULTS

The table below shows you the differences in the average vitamin and mineral composition between whey, soy, hemp, rice, pea, and Spirulina protein powders, in order for you to see that sometimes a product may appear from a macro-nutrient perspective as equal, but really not actually have the numbers to back this from a micro-nutrient perspective.

KEY TAKE AWAYS FROM NUTRITIONAL ANALYSIS

1. Spirulina is a key stand out in relation to Iron, Zinc and B12 provision, which are all very important nutrients to obtain should someone be selecting to use a protein powder in place of a regular high protein produce source i.e a piece of steak.
2. Spirulina is a key stand out for Potassium provision which is great to help balance the high sodium intakes many people are consuming through high sodium packaged foods or dining out a lot.
3. Hemp protein was a stand out for Calcium and Iron, both important nutrients should someone be selecting to use a protein powder in place of either dairy proteins or an animal based protein source.
4. Spirulina is a good source for Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron and Omega-3s.

Natural Spirulina from New Age Nutrition comes out as a great option for those replacing dairy foods and still wanting to obtain these bone and teeth health important minerals.
