Types of Protein Powders for Shaker Bottle - Protein Supplements vs Protein Powder 

Protein, Protein, Protein!

Ahh protein: one of the 9 essential amino acids. Some come in powder form others in pills. According to WebMD, casein protein, whey protein and soy protein are among the popular ones used by avid gym goers. Casein protein and Whey proteins are so popular because they dissolve in water easily. And because whey protein it has all nine of the amino acids, is a complete protein and along with casein, stays in your system for a long time, it makes both a pretty big hit for these athletes and gym goers alike. As you probably know protein can be taken in various forms through protein rich foods like oats and yogurt but for now we will just focus on protein supplements taken for muscle strength and protein powders used in shaker bottles and drink cups.

So what’s up with supps?

Protein Supplements, protein tablets or pills could be used when you don’t get enough protein in your diet. Protein tablets come from certain sources that are high in protein. The common sources that protein manufacturers pull from are: beef liver and whey protein. With the protein tablets having less calories, the taste is not so great. Also, most protein pills are taken by mouth with food so if a gym enthusiast is on the go it might be difficult for them to eat a full meal during a workout just to take in protein.

The deal with powders?

Protein powders are water soluble and don’t need much stirring to dissolve in a shake or a drink. Protein powders are in most cases tasteless because they are being dissolved in a protein shake, drink or smoothie which mostly has more flavor. One of the downsides could be the calorie intake. Shakes on average according to livestrong have 115 calories where tablets have way less than that.

The benefits of protein are real but Watch Out!

When there is not enough protein in an athlete’s diet it is difficult for them to build muscle. Protein deficiency in athletes can cause them to be fatigued which can limit their ability to work out for long periods of time. On the other hand, too much protein can cause vomiting or loss of appetite. When you choose a protein product it could help to check the daily allowance of protein needed for your body to avoid these adverse effects.

So which protein could work best for your reusable plastic shakers?

Protein powders generally dissolve easy in water and don’t require much work to mix it in thoroughly. Although with soy protein powders, because of its density more shaking might be needed to make sure everything is mixed into the drink. For gym goers and athletes less shaking means they don’t have to spend a lot of time getting that protein blast into their bodies during a workout. The ease of making a drink on the go has made it popular for different athletes to carry it with them to the gym.

In fact Cain Velasquez, mixed martial arts athlete, most times fuels his body with protein powder after a workout which helps him gain the muscle and strength that he needs when he is training for an intensive 5 round UFC fight. Consuming protein in the conditioning phases to prepare for a fight require a high amount of energy to go through every drill.

Packaging your protein powders in reusable plastic bottles or jars is convenient because you can use them over and over again. Many companies also like to include a shaker bottle with their protein or diet drink kits. Our jars can also be printed on so you can make them your own. 

At Parkway we offer samples for product testing so that you can see what packaging material works best for your specific protein shake drinks. Testing Polypropylene plastic containers can help you decide if there will be a tight enough seal with your shaker cap to prevent spillage. 


Ewww.... What's that Smell?! Tips for Cleaning your Polypropylene Plastic Drink Shakers

With the hot and cold temps it’s hard to prevent the bottle from smelling. So just in case your bottles have a weird smell here’s how to get rid of it.

How do I get the smell out of my protein shaker?

That’s right protein STINKS! Especially when protein powder from the shake, smoothie or drink is left at the bottom. When an athlete shakes protein, they may not drink all of the protein in their shaker, leaving a residue at the bottom.

To keep your shaker odorless after multiple uses of protein powders, soak it in hot water to clean the shaker bottle followed by saniclean to remove the foul odor in the shaker bottle.

Our BPA and Phthalate-free jars and caps are manufactured in the USA and are dishwasher and microwave safe just in case you need to heat up a hot water mixture to get rid of a protein shaker bottle or scrub for dear life to get rid of the smell.
