Genreally, you can get all the protein you need from your diet. Good, healthy sources are tuna, salmon, chicken, low fat cuts of beef, turkey, and soy products. Additionally, it can be found in fairly substantial quantities in items such as peanut butter and beans and lentils. These foods will provide you not only with protein , but with vitamins and minerals that your body needs to properly use the protein.
Protein powders are pretty much stripped of everything except the protein, and then artificial sweetners are added to a lot of them to make them palatable. They can serve a purpose if your diet does not provide you with enough protein (which for most of us on this board, 100 grams to 150 grams each day should be more than enough), but you are generally better off getting it the old fashioned way.
