WHO recommends a minimum of 1 gm of protein per kg bodyweight per day. If you diet does not contain this amount then you can supplement it with a protein powder. The protein content in grams is mentioned in the label which will help you to know the amount of supplemental protein you need.

Supplements are needed only in case of deficiency, specially proteins in malnutrition. Protein supplements are very costly compared to food rich in protein. Take balanced diet
