Whether you're fully committed or just beginning, all Zoners will absolutely love this product. Now it's easier than ever to get the protein you need for breakfast or any meal that is protein deficient. It couldn't be easier or more convenient to use. Just mix a scoopful into your hot cereal, shake or smoothie to create a quick, precisely-balanced Zone meal or snack. What could be easier! This is a neutral flavored, all natural source of protein containing essential amino acids and made with a premium blend of soy and whey protein. There are no artificial flavors, no sugar or preservatives.
Protein is one of the three essential macronutrients in our diet. The Zone Diet recommends that females should have approximately 21g of protein and males approximately 28g of protein at every meal.
Soy protein is a natural source of amino acids, isoflavones and phytoestrogons. It is considered an excellent choice for a protein source.
ZonePerfect Premium Soy and Whey Protein Blend uses only water-processed isolated soy protein in order to preserve the natural levels of isoflavones. It contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Soy protein is blended with deionized whey protein to help provide the optimal amino acid profile with the least impact on insulin production.
ZonePerfect Protein Powder is an easy and convenient way to fortify your food with the proper amount of protein to make a Zone meal or snack. One scoop of ZonePerfect Protein Powder will provide you with 7 grams of high quality protein. Mix it into hot oatmeal at breakfast time, add it to pudding for a snack or stir it into a beverage for a supplement source of protein.
A basic principle of the Zone Diet is consumption of protein with each meal and snack. Adequate protein intake throughout the day helps maintain your muscles and a healthy immune system. Although there are many convenient sources of carbohydrates, one often scrambles to find a ready-to-eat, convenient protein source. Additionally, the protein should combine with food without significantly altering its taste and texture.
For example, raw eggs were once a traditional protein source for shakes. Since this practice is no longer considered safe, an alternate source of high quality protein is desirable. Granulated soy protein powder fits this bill nicely. ZonePerfect Protein Powder is ready to use right out of the can and easily dissolves into cereals, yogurt, and shakes.
Why use soy protein powder?
All protein is composed of a unique combination of building blocks known as amino acids. This code of up to 20 different amino acids imbibes certain properties to a protein. Recent research shows that animal protein stimulates insulin secretion to a far greater extent than vegetable protein, especially when combined with carbohydrates. Since controlling insulin secretion is a major goal of the ZonePerfect Nutrition Program, we chose only soy protein for all ZonePerfect Nutrition bars and advocate the use of soy protein powder over one composed primarily from milk protein.
Does soy Protein Powder contain beneficial phytoestrogens?
Phytoestrogens or isoflavones are the compounds found in soybeans. Phytoestrogens may be decreased or absent in soy protein powder depending on how the soybeans are processed. The soy in ZonePerfect Protein Powder is water processed to assure the levels of these beneficial compounds are maintained.
Why is whey added to ZonePerfect Protein Powder?
Soy, like all vegetable proteins, does not contain adequate levels of all 9 essential amino acids. To make a complete protein, small amounts of whey (milk) protein are added.
Can one use this product if they are lactose (milk) intolerant?
Yes. Lactose intolerance refers to the sugar found in whole milk. Whey contains only isolated milk protein - their is no lactose (milk) sugar present in ZonePerfect Protein Powder.
