Other components such as extra sugar, artificial flavors, thickeners, vitamins, and minerals are added to enhance the flavor and functionality of the powder.
Based on raw material, the protein supplements are differentiated by casein protein supplements, whey protein supplements, egg protein supplements, MPC protein supplements, and soy protein supplements.

According to the National Library of Medicine, before the pandemic, dietary supplement sales in the United States climbed by 5% ($345 million) from 2018 to 2019. However, sales increased by 44% ($435 million) compared to the same period in 2019 in the six weeks before April 5th, 2020, during the first wave of the pandemic.
