A healthy and balanced diet with all the relevant components has become more and more important for many people.
Especially high-quality protein is essential for maintaining and building muscle mass. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, a protein consumption of 1.2g to 2.0g protein per kg body weight is recommended for athletes, depending on the type of sport and individual goals.
The recommendation for the general population between 19 and 65 years of age is 0.8g per kg body weight. For the average adult, it is extremely important to consume this amount to maintain human health. This is because proteins are an essential component not only of muscles, but also of skin and bones. As a foundation for building enzymes, hormones and antibodies, protein serves the body in its entirety. (1)
Due to the growing health awareness in our society, the demand as well as the range of high-protein products has increased significantly in the last few years. In the meantime, numerous products such as shakes, ice cream and yoghurts are produced with protein enrichment. But one of the most popular high-protein products continues to be the protein bar.
