whey2It’s time for another visitor question here on Protein Supplement Guide! Thanks to Robert Mendelton for sending us this question in:

“What is the best type of whey protein to build muscle mass? Whey protein isolate, whey protein blends, or whey protein concentrate?”

This is a good question, a question I hear and over and over, and read constantly on bodybuilding and fitness forums. The short answer is, all of them are the same. That’s right, cheaper whey protein concentrate has exactly the same muscle building potential as pure whey protein isolate.

natural_oats_and_wheyIt’s called “Natural Oats and Whey” and is the newest whey protein (more info on whey protein here) product to hit Optimum Nutrition’s protein powder lineup. This is why I like Optimum, they design supplements that people want to use. When I saw this I immediately thought – what a good idea. This is not some gimmicky “gain 20lbs of muscle in 3 weeks” supplement, it’s natural, healthy, and can be used as a meal replacement or post workout drink for people looking to build muscle or lose weight.

Why You Need Casein Protein

When you hear people talking about protein they’re usually referring to whey. Not surprising, whey protein is the ultimate protein source. Higher BV than all others, the fastest digesting, prefect amino acid profile. But what about casein protein?

I see casein protein playing a major role in building muscle. Whey protein is quick digesting, but that can also be its downfall. There are 2 times of the day where I would definitely choose casein over whey. They are: Read the full post…

Whey Protein Facts

You may have heard that whey protein is the best form of protein available to us. Well, you’ve heard right. Whey protein is a super source of protein for athletes, bodybuilders, those looking to lose weight, and people with a whole array of medical conditions.

Today I’m going to list some of the whey protein facts. Facts that make whey protein the best source of protein. The fact is that whey protein is a superfood and almost anyone can benefit from consuming it. Here’s the facts about whey protein… Read the full post…

I received an email yesterday from a young bodybuilder who said no matter what he does, he cannot stomach casein protein. Doesn’t matter what brand, it tastes disgusting, doesn’t mix properly and leaves a really bad after taste.

I know exactly where he’s coming from. I have tried around 5 brands of casein protein, and they all have the same mixing problems and “milky” taste that I really don’t like. So today I thought I’d post up a quick tip for those of you who can’t (or don’t want to) take casein protein. Read the full post…

How handy would it be to have a whey protein powder that you can easily add to foods? Today I came across a new product from Optimum Nutrition called Any Whey. Any Whey is literally flavorless, and you can add it to practically any food!

I can’t believe someone hasn’t done this before! I love cooking, and it’s going to be awesome (when it arrives) to add some extra top quality protein to my foods. Some of the foods you could possible add Any Whey to are:

  1. Cookies
  2. Cakes
  3. Muffins
  4. Breakfast cereal
  5. Shakes and smoothies
  6. Omelets

I must say, I’m a little skeptical about just how flavorless this protein is going to be, but from reports from other who’ve tried it, it sounds promising!

So if you want to add extra protein to foods and drinks, give it a shot. Post some of your recipes or food ideas in the comments below.
