Mix thoroughly with a spoon or Almased shaker to ensure a consistent texture. Please follow instructions carefully.
Almased and Exercise:
Consuming Almased will provide a valuable contribution to the required daily protein intake (0.75 gram per kilogram of body weight). Almased is suitable for those involved in physical activity because it contains easily metabolised protein which contributes to the maintenance of the body's essential muscle mass.
