Spooky Treats For Halloween - Protein Powder Recommendations
When baking, it is important that you choose a high quality protein. You ideally want one that only adds protein, and not the other unnecessary ingredients, like sugars, fats, and carbohydrates, so that you can get those things from the other ingredients in the recipe and not break the calorie bank, so to speak. For this recipe, we tried using both whey protein isolate and collagen protein from Swolverine and both worked great.
- Collagen Protein 10g of Collagen Hydrolysate Type I,II,III (45 Servings)
- Whey Protein Isolate 27g per serving per 29 g scoop (31 Servings)
What Is Collagen Protein?
Collagen makes up approximately 30% of the total protein in the human body. Collagen is a structural protein that can be found in the joints, ligaments, and tendons. It’s also found in the connective tissues of the human body, which promotes firm, hydrated, and supple skin.
What’s unique to Collagen unlike other proteins, is that Collagen contains a high concentration of four distinct amino acids, that often lack in the modern-day diet; glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine, which help promote protein synthesis, joint health, bone health, and wound healing.

What Is Whey Protein?
Whey protein concentrate is known as the gold standard of protein powder. Whey is actually the liquid by-product of cheese manufacturing. When the casein and water are removed from this by-product, you are left with what’s better known as whey protein concentrate. Most whey protein concentrates are composed of 70-80% pure protein and contain over 50% lactose, with a higher content of fat and carbohydrates, as compared to whey protein isolate. Several studies have shown that Whey protein has anabolic effects and can help improve post-workout recovery and performance.
