It is important to consume protein for overall health. How much daily PROTEIN do we really need, let us find out:

Understanding Protein Intake: While protein is an essential nutrient for various bodily functions, including muscle repair and growth. The recommended daily intake depends on person to person and depends on individual factors such as age, activity level, and dietary preferences. According to the Dietary Reference Intake report, a sedentary adult should consume approximately 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight.

Issues with excessive Protein consumption: Kidney strain, dehydration risk, nutrient imbalance, digestive discomfort and long-term health risks like osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.

Balanced Nutrition vs. All-Protein Diets: While an all-protein diet may seem tempting, it is not advisable for overall health. Instead, aim for 10%-35% of your daily calorie intake to come from protein sources. This balanced approach ensures adequate nutrition and supports various bodily functions.

Our Indian diets often include a variety of protein-rich foods such as dal (lentils), paneer (cottage cheese), green vegetables, and for non-vegetarians – eggs, meat. These foods are staples in many Indian households and provide essential nutrients like protein, vitamins, and minerals. For non-vegetarians - meat is a common source of animal protein and is widely consumed in various Indian dishes.

Perfecting the Balance of Nutrition: We understand that a balanced breakfast goes beyond just protein. That is why our Protein muesli is meticulously crafted to provide 15g protein per serve, and additionally the right mix of fibre, and healthy fats.
