Post Graduate Diploma/Executive Diploma in Dietary Protein Nutrition

Protein powders are often sold as a dietary supplement to help people get more protein in their diet. Whey, casein, egg, soy, rice, hemp, and pea proteins are among the most popular proteins utilized in these products, along with additions including creatine, glutamine, sugar, artificial sweeteners, and herbal sweeteners. Protein isn't just for athletes. It is vital for a healthy immune system as well as the proper functioning of organs like as the heart, brain, and skin. The vitamin is also praised for its ability to suppress hunger and promote muscle building.

The amount of protein you require is usually determined by your activity habit, age, and overall health. And the question of whether or not to use a protein powder to boost protein consumption has become a hot topic.

Protein powder is classed as a dietary supplement, which means it is not regulated in the same way that food or medicine is. Manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that their goods are safe, yet many do not test for safety or efficacy before putting them on the market. Despite the fact that the FDA designed Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) to assist prevent harmful effects, compliance with these processes is still an issue. IGMPI’s Dietary Protein Nutrition course focuses on to establish a strong background and knowledge with respect to the dietary proteins.
