Why Whey Protein?
Whey Protein is unquestionably the most complete protein source available in food. It contains all the essential amino acids necessary for growth and repair of muscle tissue. The human body needs amino acids for help grow and repair muscle tissue, synthesize enzymes and provide energy. Additionally it is in a form that is easily digested by the human body and scores low in the Glycemic Index (GI). The combination of these benefits means that Whey Protein scores higher than any other protein source on the 3 most important scoring systems measuring the nutritional value of proteins:
- Protein Digestibility Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) is the gold standard in evaluating proteins and endorsed by the WHO and the U.S Food and Drug Administration. Whey Protein scores higher than any other protein on a PDCASS score.
- Biological Value (BV). Whey protein also scores highest of all protein sources on the BV score
- Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER) again Whey Protein beats all other protein sources.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey is only made from the purest most natural sources of whey protein.
Are All Whey Proteins The Same?
Unquestionably not. Gold Standard Whey is made firstly from Whey Protein Isolate (WPI). Many Whey Proteins are made from lower value Whey Protein Concentrates and even very low grade Whey Protein Powder. These deliver significantly lower protein per serving and will inevitably contain higher levels of lactose and fat. Secondly the heat treatment is a critical element of the whey protein process. Too much heat treatment denatures the protein and damages its nutritional value. With Gold Standard 100% Whey you get Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) blended with Whey Protein Concentrate 80 (WPC80).
