Whey & Other Proteins From Milk

Every protein from milk brings a different kind of strong.

Why whey? 

To build strength, power muscles, lose weight (fat mass) and recover from a workout, nothing compares with whey proteins. Whey protein can be found as an ingredient in many consumer retail products at local grocery stores, super-centers, health and nutrition outlets, and online. To find out if a product contains whey protein, check the ingredient list located on the label. Products that contain whey protein as a primary source will have whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, or hydrolyzed whey protein listed near the beginning of the ingredient list. Examples of these products include: snack and energy bars, sports drinks, drink mixes and infant formula. Powdered whey protein supplements can also be purchased and added to milk, yogurt, oatmeal, smoothies, or your favorite snack and meal recipes to increase your protein intake.

Why casein and caseinates?

Because it’s digested more slowly, casein is sometimes called the “delayed release” protein. It’s perfect to keep hunger at bay and keep you strong throughout the day.  Some favor it for long workouts, or even consume it before bedtime to make them stronger for the next day!

They can also be found as an ingredient in a myriad of products, including non-dairy creamers (as they are lactose-free), but also dressings, sauces, spreads, cheese products, and of course, a variety of beverages, supplements, sports products, bars and snacks. Casein-based powders are also available at retail and can be used just as other protein powders, for your favorite blended drink, smoothie or shake. They are lactose-free.

Why protein from milk concentrates and isolates?

Delivering proteins in the same casein/whey ratio as in milk, these ingredients can be found in many beverages and supplements but also in bars and snacks, and a myriad of other products. Isolates are virtually lactose-free. These ingredients are gaining popularity in meal replacements and “everyday” supplements.

Why milk powders?

Milk powder is a source of proteins from milk, with a concentration of about 34%, and it is probably one of the “oldest” ingredients in the growing family of proteins from milk ingredients. While milk powders are seldom used in products which deliver very high levels of proteins, they are found in a variety of beverages, desserts, yogurts, baked goods and snacks. Their addition can help improve the amino-acid profiles and improve the overall protein quality of cereal or grain products, for example. They are an important ingredient in toddler foods or formulations for vulnerable individuals, those who are pregnant, and lactating mothers.
