Whether you’re a serious athlete, a weekend warrior or just a dedicated gym goer looking to tone-up, it's a good idea to have some powdered protein on hand. Protein builds muscle, boosts your performance and makes the most out of all your hard work in the gym. And thanks to the high protein content of powdered supplements, having a scoop or two in a shake, smoothie or bowl of oatmeal not only helps build and preserve lean muscle mass effectively, it also aids weight loss efforts by boosting calorie burn and increasing satiety.

After all, not all protein powders are created equal. We sifted through the good, the bad and the ugliest tubs to unearth the ones worth your time.
