Potential Dangers of Protein Powder Manufacturing

The global protein supplements market is expected to reach $32.6 billion by 2027, making NOW the perfect time to get working on your line of private label protein products with a credible supplement manufacturer… Hello nice to meet you, we are Makers, Makers Nutrition.


No, dietary supplements are not always approved by the FDA, but when working with an FDA-GMP-registered manufacturing company, you are guaranteed a high level of standards in terms of production and quality. Some experts warn against potential toxins in protein, such as heavy metals. When you partner with Makers Nutrition, you are guaranteed testing for heavy metals and micros on every order because we only manufacture safe dietary supplements.

Custom Protein Supplements

In addition to our ready-to-go private label stock protein powders, we welcome you to take advantage of our expertise on custom protein formulas. Your product specialist will quote out what you are interested in having manufactured and walk you through the process of producing a high-quality protein supplement for your supplement brand. Beware, some supplement manufacturers have been known to ‘protein spike’ their products, which is a way of cheating the test to determine protein content, meaning the powder may not have as much protein as what is advertised, tells Alana Kessler, MS, RDN and founder of Be Well by Alana Kessler. If your customers are relying on your protein to reach adequate levels due to medical conditions, then what is listed on the label and what is actually in the bottle could be detrimental (or beneficial) to their health. The latter would probably be best.

Too Much of One Thing

Speaking of adequacy, your customers do not want to overdo the protein either. Again, those with medical conditions may be harmed by your product if it is does not contain the amount of protein listed in the supplement facts. For example, individuals who have a kidney condition must be cautious of how much protein they are consuming as their bodies may struggle with processing high amounts of the nutrient. Too much protein can also lead to dehydration since the kidneys work to flush out excess protein.

Remember to encourage customers to maintain healthy levels of protein consumption, including whole food protein sources such as poultry, legumes, meats, and nuts. Abbey Sharp, RD, blogger, YouTuber, and founder of Abbey’s Kitchen, advises “… it becomes a concern when a number of daily protein shakes start to displace other important nutrients in the diet like healthy fats and fiber-rich, healthy carbs.” It is never a good idea to hyper focus on one food or nutrient because it can offset appropriate intake of other elements of a healthy diet.

Allergens and Dietary Restrictions

Consider this: Around 9.7 million Americans are vegan. Many of these vegans rely on a supplemental protein source. If you would like your eco-conscious brand to stand out on the shelves, try a custom plant-based protein formula. Many people simply choose to avoid milk, lactose, egg, and soy without an allergen—another target consumer group to keep in mind when formulating. Makers Nutrition is very flexible with manufacturing capabilities. We can create a product that is not only vegan-friendly, but free of artificial colors and added sugar. Just give us a call and we will get started on preparing a private label protein powder that may just be your next best-selling product.
