With the bag of Protein Essentials collagen in one hand and the scooper in the other, you think to yourself, “What do I put this in?”. Fret no longer, here at Protein Essentials we have been busy determining the top 5 beverages that taste amazing with Peptan® Hydrolyzed Collagen.

Fortunately, your morning roast is the perfect beverage to add Protein Essentials hydrolyzed collagen. The bold flavors of your cup of joe will blend with the unflavored collagen, providing you with the morning jolt you need as well as the many benefits of a paleo superfood.

4. Tea

Looking for a beverage that is both warm and relaxing? Tea is a great option as it is chock full of beneficial herbs, it contains a bit of caffeine to kick start your day, and it fights free radicals. The variety of tea flavors available make it an exceptionally versatile beverage for adding collagen protein.

5. Gatorade

If you’re an athlete, replenishing electrolytes is key to building muscle and staying hydrated. Gatorade is not only a great source of the potassium and sodium you need to combat dehydration, but it also contains a balance of carbs that aid muscle recovery. The benefits of Gatorade can be further enhanced by adding Peptan® Hydrolyzed Collagen or our Perform 100 recovery powder. This powerful combo will keep you hydrated while simultaneously promoting connective tissue health and alleviating muscle and joint pain.

Following a Gluten-Free or Paleo diet? Beware of Whey

For those suffering from gluten intolerance or following a paleo diet, finding the right food can be challenging. Many foods which appear to be gluten free, like gum, salad dressing, toothpaste and soy sauce, have sneaky additives derived from gluten. Protein supplements are no exception.

Whey Protein is one of the most popular supplements for athletes and the health conscious alike. It’s been proven to help people achieve quick muscle gains and speed up recovery. However, by using whey you might be unknowingly sacrificing your gluten free diet.

In its natural form whey, which comes from dairy, is completely gluten free. Unfortunately, as the whey is processed, many brands add gluten. “Glutamine” is the sneaky name for the most commonly used gluten additive. Other words to look out for on whey labels are starch, malt sugar, wheat, barley, rye, caramel color, dextrin, and maltodextrin (1). Cross-contamination is also something to be cautious of, as whey manufacturers may process wheat products at their facilities. Carefully reviewing the product’s label can help you determine if the product is safe for your consumption.

Fortunately, there is a great alternative to whey protein. At Protein Essentials, our products are gluten and dairy free, meaning you can still get the muscle gains and health benefits you want, without sacrificing your gluten free or paleo diet. Unlike whey protein which is derived from milk, collagen is the main protein found in the connective tissue of animals, making it an excellent hypoallergenic protein supplement. Make the switch to Peptan® Hydrolyzed Collagen today, after all it’s A Paleo Superfood™.
