Proteins are the major building blocks of muscles and other tissues in our bodies. For proteins to serve our bodies they need to be metabolized into their simplest form: amino acids.
Our bodies need 20 amino acids and 8 of those amino acids need to be directly consumed in our diets – the absence of any of these will compromise the ability of tissue to grow, be repaired or be maintained.
Animal protein sources are considered to be higher quality than other protein sources and is most similar to the kind found in our own bodies. When it comes to structural processes such as muscle building, egg-white protein has an optimal rate of absorption by the human body – therefore, it’s an ideal component for our protein bars.
