Let’s talk about the most used and debated WHEY PROTEIN
Not all protein is created equal.
Some forms of protein, such as whey, are better than others.
However… whey is more than just protein. There are tons of other nutrients in there, some with potent biological effects.
Whey protein has also been shown to have benefits for depression, blood pressure, blood sugar and even helping to treat symptoms of HIV and cancer (3).
In fact, it is one of the best studied supplements in the world.
This is a detailed article about whey protein… what it is, how it works and how it can help you achieve your fitness and health goals.
What is Whey Protein?
Whey protein is a mixture of proteins isolated from whey. Whey is the liquid part of milk that separates during cheese production.
Milk actually contains two main types of protein… casein (80%) and whey (20%).
Whey is found in the watery portion of milk. When cheese is produced, the fatty parts of the milk coagulate and the whey is separated from it as a by-product .
If you’ve ever opened a yogurt container to see liquid floating on top, this is whey. Cheese makers used to discard it before they discovered its commercial value .
After being separated during cheese production, whey goes through a series of processing steps to become what people generally recognize as whey protein… a powder that is added to shakes, meal replacements and protein bars .
This is what whey protein powder typically looks like:
Whey protein doesn’t taste very good on its own, which is why it is usually flavoured. Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry flavored powders are popular.
It’s important that you read the ingredients list, because some of them can have unhealthy additives like refined sugar.
Taking whey protein is a convenient way to add 25-50 grams of protein on top of your daily intake. This can be important for bodybuilders and gym enthusiasts, as well as people who need to lose weight or are simply lacking protein in their diet.
Most flavored whey proteins are also pretty delicious and can be used to make healthy recipes (like smoothies) taste incredibly good.
Whey is generally well tolerated, although people with lactose intolerance need to be careful with it. There are also some people who are allergic to whey.
