Flavored v/s Raw which one is better?
This debate is going on for decades and it doesn’t seem to conclude anytime soon either. Argument from in favor of Raw Protein is that it offers more simplicity as you get exactly what you ask for. But the thing is many of new comers don’t know what to ask for.
We feel flavored blends far supersedes the naive logic offered in favor of Raw proteins. Following are the benefits offered by flavored proteins:
- Better Mixability: Flavored blends offer far better mixability compared to raw proteins as flavors agents are suitably chosen to bind with protein compound and water molecules.
- Better Digestibility: Most of the flavored blends comes with added digestive enzymes which provide quicker and efficient digestion of protein which is absent in raw protein. Poor digestibility of protein is the biggest concern among new bodybuilder and those who are resuming the intake after a brief period of time.
- Great Taste: Last but not least the taste. Better flavor allows you to stay regular to your protein rich diet. This way you don’t get bored eating the same thing every day. One can stock 2-3 flavors of proteins and choose the one that matches your mood for the day.

While whey is one of the most common protein powder ingredients, you may also discover products made from peas, seeds, or soy, which might be beneficial if you eat a vegan or plant-based diet.
- Pay Attention to Label: In addition to the amount of protein in each serving, the calorie and carb levels should be considered. This is especially true if you're trying to reduce weight or following a low-carb or ketogenic diet.
- Texture: The texture is perhaps one of the most significant factors to consider. Some dissolve quickly when mixed or shaken, while others need the use of a blender.
- Budget: Depending on the product, the number of servings per container varies considerably. When calculating the price of a protein powder, keep the cost per serving in mind.
