Protein balls are a relatively new product in the protein supplement market and I bet there are a lot of people out there who ask themselves every time they go down the supermarket health food isle or into their local supplement shop or health food store, “What is a protein ball?”
As the popularity of the protein ball has grown it has changed over the years and evolved into more of a main stream protein product now.
I can remember them being in a plastic self serve bowl on the front counter of a Health Food store initially and you use to have to use a pair of tongs to get them out and put them into a bag to buy.
The original protein balls were filled with a lot more natural ingredients and were loose units, now most are sealed in plastic and available everywhere for purchase.
The protein ball is exactly how it sounds, a ball shaped protein snack that has protein in it.
The original types of natural filled ingredient protein balls are still available everywhere and you are spoilt for choice with brands and ingredients as well.
But in more recent times the protein ball has become very similar to the protein bar and has the same ingredient formula, just with a different shape to them and a little different packaging.
You can buy packets of protein balls instead of having your daily protein bar and it will serve the same purpose as a protein snack to have in between meals throughout the day.
So protein balls are here to stay in the protein market and if you haven’t tried them as yet, go and buy some as they really aren’t too bad and are great to change to for a while if you are getting sick of your protein shake or the diet protein bars you are currently having.
There are high protein / low carb, fat burning, natural ingredient protein balls in a variety of sizes and also in a variety of different flavours available to buy at Health Food Stores, Supermarkets, Chemists / Pharmacies and in your local Supplement Shop.
I’ll be writing about specific brands and types of protein balls here at Protein Guy in time, so make sure you add me to favourites and keep on checking back.
I hope this has answered your question, what is a protein ball?
