Hey guys, just a question that arose out of curiosity.
I’ve heard it said that meat is the best source for protein in comparison to a protein shake. Knowing that proteins are made of amino acids why would it make sense for one to be better than the other? Amino acids are found in meat AND in shakes and they are structurally identical… in fact, I would argue that they are more easily absorbed via shake because they are free amino acids, not peptides.
Maybe a stupid question but I’m always curious!
