Elmhurst® Protein Shakes – The Cleanest Protein Shake On The Planet™

Protein is made of 20 amino acids. These are needed for protein synthesis, which is essential to muscle recovery. Of the 20, nine amino acids are essential, meaning they cannot be generated by the body and instead need to be obtained from food. Peanut protein has all essential amino acids, including the branched-chain amino acids isoleucine, leucine, and valine (National Research Council, 1989; Natarajan, 1980). This makes peanuts an excellent post-workout choice.

You did know that peanut is the next big thing, right?

In addition to the protein shakes’ nutritional benefits, other benefits include:

Shelf stable.

Due to their aseptic packaging, like all other Elmhurst products, the protein shakes are shelf stable until the expiration date is reached or until the carton has been opened. Once they have been opened, they will need to go in the refrigerator and be used within about 7 days.

Portable and convenient for on-the-go.

At just 12 fluid ounces, these protein shakes are easy to transport in a purse/gym bag and convenient for on-the-go activities.


In the end, taste is what might be the final determining factor. The different varieties will leave you wanting a cupboard stocked at all times.
