What We Do & Who We Are

Protein is a vital component of a nourishing diet, so we find popular questions about this important nutrient and compile the best information into easy-to-read, yet thorough, articles.

Collette, the founder of Protein Answers, is a registered dietitian and has experience working with athletes, children & adults on tube feeding, and people with chronic health conditions.

These experiences illuminated the importance of dietary protein for maintaining & building lean mass, healing people of all ages, and preventing malnutrition in people most at risk.

In addition to highlighting protein, we provide expert nutrition and fitness recommendations to improve your quality of life.
