Protein powder | What is it and which one is the best | Fitlyzen
What is protein powder?
Protein powder is powder with a high concentration of protein. Because proteins can be filtered in different ways, there are different protein powders. Nowadays there are many brands that still sell animal protein powders like whey protein powders or whey isolate protein powders. A researched better option is to go for plant based protein powders because they are healthier (lactose free) and contain a higher concentration of protein. Proteins support the recovery and maintenance of muscle mass. This is beneficial for people who are health conscious or have an active and/or sporty lifestyle.
Different kinds of protein powders
An important distinction between different protein powders is the animal and plant based varieties as indicated above. Animal protein powders sometimes taste a bit better, but the disadvantage is that they are less healthy, contain lactose and are less highly concentrated in terms of protein. The advantage of plant based or vegan friendly protein powders is a healthier shake that contains a higher percentage of protein which will ultimately give better results.
How are protein powders made?
Protein powder is made by extracting protein from the desired source (milk, cheese, peas, rice, ewrts, potato or any other source that contains protein) and then filtering it. The filtering is done by 'stripping' the protein powder, as it were, of everything that is not protein (fat, carbohydrates, fiber and water) in order to have as much of the powder consist of protein as possible. You have the so-called 'concentrates' and 'isolates'. Concentrates are protein powders with a protein content of around 80%: they have been filtered through until 80% of the protein powder consists of protein. Isolates are protein powders with a protein content of 90% or higher. Which basically means there is an extra filtering. Because of this extra processing, isolate protein powders are more expensive than concentrates. The protein shake from Fitlyzen is a vegetable shake of the highest quality and percentage of protein.
What is the best kind of protein powder?
Which protein powders are best has to do with a number of factors. For example, solubility is a factor in use, but also the degree of absorption by your body. It is not a given that your body will absorb all of the protein. The amino acid profile is also important, since your body does not make some amino acids (proteins are made up of amino acids) itself. So it is good if the protein contains a lot of those so-called essential amino acids. Of course, the actual protein content and other nutritional values in the powder are also important. What do you want to have in it? And, the last two factors that come into play are: taste and price. You shouldn't confuse these. The taste should not get boring, but also the money you have to put down should not feel annoying. We ticked all of these pints with our Fitlyzen Protein Shake.
