Instant protein is a type of protein supplement/replacement that is used as a quick and easy way to replace or supplement their diet with additional or required protein in a quick and easy form (powder mixed with liquid of choice). Someone who is in need of additional protein would drink this after a meal that is low in protein. We offer a variety of meal replacement and protein replacement/supplement drink choices on the dotFIT group page: http://www.sharecare.com/group/dotfit    
Instant protein is a concentrated form of protein. It comes in a powder and adds extra protein to anything you mix it with. It can be added to food or beverages. It doesn't lose its nutrient benefits when you cook with it. It provides the nine essential amino acids that your body needs if it can't create them itself.
