Sharing his views, Dr. Nandan Joshi, Head – Nutrition Science & Medical Affairs, DanoneIndia said, “Some people believe that Protein supplements are only for specific medical conditions, which is not true. While some may be more suitable as per one’s health needs, not many people are aware about the right amount and type of protein to consume. This is important because meeting one’s daily protein requirement is essential to maintain good muscle health. In special cases, such as, diabetes and obesity, it becomes necessary to consider options that have no added sugar”.

 “Protein is an important nutrient of my daily diet and with the new ProtinexLite, I am positive that not only will I be able to meet my daily protein requirement but also do it in a better way with ‘no sugar’. I am truly proud of my association with Protinex and I hope to continue to spread the message of protein rich diet for active lifestyle & good health amongst the masses.” said, Protinex brand ambassador Mahesh Babu.
