Is protein powder worth it?(r/Fitness)
Meat is a very expensive form of protein, why compare it to just meat?
Milk is far cheaper than protein powder.
It’s about $3 for a gallon of milk which contains 132 grams of protein, comes out to 44 grams of protein per dollar.
ON comes out be 30.625 grams per dollar. Milk is a lot cheaper.
Lets look at black beans. A 1 pound bag is about $2.30 which has about 131 grams of protein in it. That is 56.95 grams of protein per dollar.
Protein powder is overpriced, of course it is. It is a niche product that is sold for convenience and to as a part of the supplements market which is full of overpriced goods.
