This is achieved by the quality of our protein, which is absorbed into your body at a 95% rate compared to traditional protein sources which is absorbed at a 70% rate. In addition, Ideal protein products control your bodies carbohydrate consumption, which stops your insulin spikes, allowing your pancreas to rest, and turning your body into a fat burning machine.
