WHEY ๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ› ๐Ÿฅ›Whey protein is one of the two proteins found in milk, with the other being casein. When a coagulant (usually renin) is added to milk, the curds (casein) and whey separate. Whey protein is the water-soluble part of milk. ๐Ÿฅ›Whey is used as a protein powder supplement. It is very useful for hitting daily protein macros but if you can cover them up through food then whey is not required.You will still do good from the protein you get from the food sources. ๐Ÿฅ›Is Whey required ? ๐Ÿฅ›No! If we can cover up protein from food sources like diary ,meat products ,Soya bean , lentils etc . ๐Ÿฅ›Which whey you should buy ? ๐Ÿฅ›Any brand with concentrate / isolate protein which contains around 20 gms or more protein in one scoop . Carbs less than 4-5 gms and fat less than 2-3 gms . ๐Ÿฅ›what if you are lactose intolerant or vegan ? ๐Ÿฅ›Please go for plant based protein with similar values given above . CASEIN ๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ› ๐Ÿฅ›Casein protein is one of the two proteins that make up dairy protein (the other being Whey protein). It is typically known as the 'slow' digesting component of Milk protein. ๐Ÿฅ›Casein is a slow-digesting dairy protein that we often take as a supplement. It releases amino acids slowly, so people often take it before bed to help with recovery and reduce muscle breakdown while they sleep. ๐Ÿฅ›Is casein required ? ๐Ÿฅ› No!! Recover should be fine if your overall protein intake is good casein wonโ€™t elevate your recovery or muscle growth just by taking it. So focus on over all intake of protein rather than falling for different brands claiming they have best proteins. FOOD COMES FIRST . ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ I hope it cleared some confusions .
