About Us

About Us is your resource guide for information pertaining to alternative protein supplements and healthy living techniques.

We Strive To Provide Honest, Authentic Content.

We strive on providing authentic, accurate, fully researched and vetted
information, reviews, comparisons, alternatives to try, guides, recipes and so
much more.

We Care.

We care about the quality of the products we recommend. For example, while some people only care about the number of grams of protein per serving, AltProtein cares about the quality of the protein.


To this end, AltProtein researches effective ways to increase your protein intake, maximize your workouts, and treat your body with respect. Sure, you can pump yourself full of junk for a while and see some results, but this is a short-term mindset.


We believe health is a long-term goal that we can all strive to improve on a daily basis. Our goal here on AltProtein is to continually produce the highest-quality reviews, guides, and more to give our dedicated audience a place to come to get the latest information, real-deal, tested reviews, comparisons of products, health tips, and more.


Empowering people to make good decisions about their health by providing tested, researched, and trialed product reviews, comparisons, and recommendations.

Our Mission.

To help people make informed, smart choices when it comes to their health and wellbeing. To give people alternatives to expensive, poor-quality supplements and health products that are better for their health and their wallets.
We believe that investing in your health should not cost you your first-born, which is why our editorial team strives to recommend the highest quality products, with proven, organic, natural ingredients that won’t break the bank. Many health supplements are sold through multi-level marketing programs, with expensive fees and pushy representatives. Here at AltProtein, we take a deeper look at these products, test them out, investigate the ingredients and hold them to a higher standard for our audience.



Not only in the products we recommend but in our research and brand approach.


If we say we’ve tested and tried a product, we have.


An accessible approach to health. We believe everyone should be able to live their best lives. We strive to always find recommendations for every budget, every diet preference, making healthy lives accessible for all.


You won’t have to know where we stand on a product.


Everything we do is about finding the ‘good’ products, in value and in ingredients.


We take product recommendations very seriously around here. Before we recommend an alternative, a supplement, anything — we do extensive research. That starts with researching the ingredients each product is made of, accessing the right scientific studies, consulting experts in the space (nutritionists, naturopaths, medical doctors, nurses) and reading real people reviews and use cases of each product.

As much as possible, our writers and editorial team use and test each product in their real lives. We not only evaluate and discuss the health benefits of each product, but we can then talk about the taste, the mixability of a protein powder, things you might not find in other reviews, but that really matters to our audience.

Every article goes through an extensive editorial process as well to ensure high-quality, relevant content for our audience. We make sure that each article has a clear purpose, gives a clear and tested recommendation, or call to action and is helpful for our audience. We make sure to cite outside sources and document where we got our research from.

Every article is unique, authentic, original content that is not published anywhere else. If we quote or source someone else, we cite it. We also only cite reputable, trusted sources.

If we are making a recommendation of any kind, it’s because we like, use, and have tested the product out and would recommend it to our friends and family (and often do!).

We update key articles continuously so we are always recommending the latest products and keeping abreast of the latest health breakthroughs and research available. We also take product recalls very seriously and strive to make sure we are recommending products that are proven, effective and safe.

She comes as a representative of herself alone and always recommends consulting with your primary care physician before making any health-related decisions.

Our contributors do their best to test the products that they use, or compare and offer frank, authentic reviews of every product. Our contributors are not endorsed by any product, so they remain unbiased. They are real users, real people who have years of experience testing out new diets, new health products — some of which they love, some of which they don’t.

Here are some of our select contributors at Alt Protein:

Jodie Chiffey, Juice & Smoothie Chef

   Jodie has been a certified personal trainer for several years now and has a passion for wellness, health, fitness like no other. She’s been educating herself on nutrition since she was in high school. His boyfriend is a professional herbalist and food healer, so she takes the health and wellness discussions into the homefront. Not only is Jodie a seasoned, professional writer, but she also uses and tests health products, protein supplements, and personally and shares her insights on topics such as protein, diets, muscle recovery, muscle building, supplements, and naturally-sourced products. Jodie is a nutrition and health expert who owns over 50 pairs of athletic shoes and puts them to good use.

She’s working on certifications in personal training and nutrition coaching.
