Protein Powder - a term that is mostly associated with supplement is more commonly used for muscle building as well as recovery purposes. It could, be regarded as a building block for muscle building.
For this supplement alone, the range of products could be classified under 4 simple categories: Whey Sustained Release, 100% Whey, Whey Isolate and Casein Protein. The difference across all 4? It would be narrowed down to the speed of absorption and digestion.
Protein Powders typically contain 4 types of protein:
- Micellar Casein
- Whey Protein Concentrate
- Whey Protein Isolate
- Whey Protein Hydrolysate
A Whey Sustained Release contains all 4 types of Protein, and would be recommended to be taken before or after workouts.
Unlike a Whey Sustained Release, a 100% Whey Protein contains 2 types of protein: Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate. As such, resulting in it being faster in terms of absorption and digestion as compared to a Whey Sustained Release.
For a 100% Whey Isolate, it contains only 1 type of protein: Whey Protein Isolate. As such, it is the fastest absorbing and digesting protein as compared to the other 2.
Under the Isolate range, there is also Hydro Whey, which essentially stands for hydrolyzed whey. This protein powder contains Whey Protein Hydrolysate, in turn, being even faster than a 100% Whey Isolate.
Also, for those of us who are lactose-intolerant, this range of protein would be more recommended due to it having most of the lactose filtered out.
Lastly, Casein Protein contains 1 type of protein: Micellar Casein. It is the slower absorbing and digesting protein, as such, recommended for consumption in between meals or before bed.
