Welcome to the most advanced protein filter anywhere in the world! The Supplement Database rates 206 protein supplements made by 96 manufacturers. These ratings include 9 different types of proteins. Sifting through all these options can get daunting. This filter provides 22 ways to narrow your search and find the perfect product.

Each tab below represents a different filter. Expand each filter to see which options are available to narrow a search. You may use as many or few filters as you'd like. If you don't get enough results, select fewer filter options. Do the opposite if you get too many results.

To begin, expand the filters below, make selections, and click the filter button at the bottom of the page.

Filters

The filters in this section allow you to search by calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, and/or protein. To use these filters, set the sliders to your desired range.

Sliders are preset to the minimum and maximum value for all products in the database. For example, the calorie sliderss are limited to 50 to 210 calories because the lowest calorie amount for any product in the database is 50 while the highest is 210.

To set one of the filters to a specific number rather than a range, set both minimum and maximum sliders to the same number. The numbers on the sliders are inclusive (greater OR equal to/less than OR equal to). Not all products disclose these values on their nutrition labels. These filters will exclude products that do not list the values that you include in your search.

Note: You do not need to use all the filters below. Only adjust the sliders for the values you want to be included in your search. Sliders that are unadjusted will not be included in your search.












The filters in this section allow you to search by macronutrient content as a percent of total calories. To use these filters, select your desired percent range for the macros below.

Sliders are preset to the minimum and maximum percent value for all products in the database. For example, the fat percent of calories sliders are limited to 0 to 39 because the lowest fat content for any product in the database is 0 while the highest is 39.

Note: You do not need to use all the filters below. Only adjust the sliders for the values you want included in your filter. Sliders that are unadjusted will not be included in your search.

Note: Numbers on the sliders are inclusive (greater or equal to/less than or equal to).

This section allows you to filter by fat content transparency. A product's fat content transparency is a percentage of how many types of fat a nutrition label discloses amounts for.

There are three types of fats (saturated, unsaturated, and trans fat); each has various effects on overall health. Manufacturers disclose a product's total fat content; some do not disclose the breakdown between the different types of fat. A score of 100 means 100% of a product's fat content is disclosed (broken down by type).

Note: Numbers on the sliders are inclusive (greater or equal to/less than or equal to).
