Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I would suggest you the following proportion to keep in mind while selecting a protein powder:

  1. Low fat (1 to 5 grams is good).
  2. Low carbohydrate (1 to 5 grams is good).
  3. High protein (normally about 20 to 30 grams per serving).
  4. Go for concentrate powders - that is absorbed at a moderate pace.

Typically, it is good to include this in between the meals. Wishing you good health.
