The most common dosage form of whey protein supplements is "powder", and the packaging is in the form of small bags, large bags or cans. If it is packed in a small bag, it can be carried around and replenished immediately after exercising, which is more convenient for consumers to use; the average price per serving is more affordable in large bags or cans. Although consumers' demand for protein bars or ready-to-drink products has decreased in the post-epidemic era, the ready-to-drink products in special-shaped bags that can improve convenience are still a new choice for consumers. Independent hygienic packaging can reduce the repeated opening of the contents, pollution and deterioration.
