Protein Powder ?

 

What is whey protein? Whey protein is a milk-based protein created from the cheese making process. It’s ultimately sold in powder form. Whey protein is known as the “fast-digesting” protein because it’s easily absorbed and digested, and enters the bloodstream quickly. Whey protein results in rapid delivery of amino acids (protein) to the muscles.

 

When is it best to consume whey protein? Whey protein is an excellent option to consume before, during, and after workouts due to the fast delivery of amino acids (protein) to the muscles. Plus, the easy digestibility reduces any chance of GI distress around training. Whey protein is also a high-quality, versatile, and convenient protein source that can be incorporated at ANY meal or snack.

 

Can I use whey protein in place of lean protein throughout the day? Yes, you can substitute a whey protein shake for lean protein at a meal, but it should NOT be your primary protein source throughout the day. Variety is key to make sure you consume ample vitamins and minerals. 

 

Mixing protein powder with water is disgusting. How else can I use it?

  •  Proats- mix in with (cooked) oatmeal

  •  Progurt- mix in with Greek yogurt

  •  Smoothie- mix in to a fruit and yogurt smoothie

  •  Protein Pudding- mix with peanut butter (melt for 15 seconds first) and a drizzle of water ( this sounds dangerous)

  •  Creamy Shake- mix with milk, frozen banana and a few ice cubes

 

What is casein protein? Casein protein is also a milk-based protein derived from the cheese making process. It’s known as the “slow-digesting” protein because it takes 5 – 7 hours to digest. 

 

When is it best to consume casein protein? Casein protein is best consumed prior to a long period of time without food, such as right before bed, or a busy day of meetings. The slow-digesting nature will support a steady supply of amino acids to your muscles for a prolonged period of time.
