Question

Do I have to take a protein powder? If so, what is the best?

Short Answer

You do not have to take a protein supplement. As long as your daily protein intake is met, there is no need to take protein via a supplement powder.

If you are going to supplement with a protein powder, whey protein is considered the "gold standard" for high quality protein. If you are looking for a plant based protein, soy protein powders are of very high quality also.

Long Answer

See Protein Quality for a detailed answer with sources.
