I’m almost positive theres a conspiracy against me and my handle. I give up. I must’ve spelled my name wrong.
Anyway, whey comes in different vareities: isolate, concentrate, hydrolysate. And all of these are produced to different qualities. Hydrolysates in particular can be in larger or smaller particles which directly affects their ability to be absorbed by the body.
Here is JB discussing the topic in a little more depth. With a PWO drink you’re not trying to add in slow acting proteins for the long-haul. You’re trying to switch your protein balance quickly into the positive with very fast acting proteins. Isolates could work in a pinch, but hydrolysates are infinitely better. GNC doesn’t even use a cheaper protein in their PWO. You think they’d cut corners if it could be “almost as good”?
True by eating anything with sugars fructose, glucose, dextrose… You will be getting the desired insulin response that provides half the equation, but I’d just as easily skip a long acting protein that will have effects 4-6 hours later than ingest it and have it hamper the absorbtion of nutrients I need then and there.
I’m really baffled on how you can equate the absorbtion of Grow which contains no hydrolysates and milk-protein isolates to a a poorer quality hydrolysate. Especially with Micellar casein you start to move to a much longer acting protein. I’m seriously confused. Could you provide some information on the various absrobances of different proteins and their effect on nitrogen balance?
I’ve never seen a PWO offered anywhere without hydrolysates.
