Whey protein is a component of milk protein, with the other being casein. Whey may be healthier than other forms of protein. The benefits of whey are due to the protein itself, while casein may be a better muscle builder.
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.
Whey is used as a protein supplement. It is very useful for hitting targeted daily protein goals. Whey is absorbed faster than other forms of protein. That means it also increases muscle protein synthesis used to break a fasted state.
Whey also delivers a large amount of the amino acid L-cysteine, which can alleviate deficiencies that occur during aging and diabetes, as well as other conditions. While whey has also been claimed to increase fat loss, this is a function of protein, rather than the whey itself. This means that the whey itself does not reduce fat, but taking in more protein often aids with fat loss efforts.
Whey does not harm the liver or kidneys, but it can exacerbate pre-existing damage. People with damaged livers or kidneys should exercise caution when increasing protein intake quickly without the guidance of a doctor.
Whey protein is the highest BV (Biological Value) protein available in nature. Research has shown that the highest rate of nitrogen retention is achieved with whey protein.
USN 100% Whey Protein provides the purest form of this single protein substrate. It contains proteins such as lactalbumen and immunoglobins, which are known to be vital for proper immune system function and muscle development and recovery.
Now with revolutionary HydroMatrixTM and Zyma Tech Enzyme TM technology, the proper uptake of the protein and its conversion into amino acids by your body is optimised.
What is whey protein?
Whey protein is produced from milk. The manufacturing process removes most of the fat and milk sugars (carbohydrates) and leaves you with a convenient powder which is packed with protein and amino acids, making it very easy to add extra daily protein to your active and sporty lifestyle. Within the whey protein category there are different types of whey protein, including whey isolate which is absorbed more quickly, to casein protein which is absorbed more slowly and ideal for bedtime.
Benefits of whey protein
Whey protein is an easy and convenient way of getting extra protein into your daily diet between meals, or directly after training; simply scoop, mix and drink. You can carry it with you in your gym bag or keep a tub in your locker, car or desk. Whey protein powder can be relied on to deliver the extra protein your hard-working body needs, with no mess and no fuss.
Whey is left over when milk is coagulated during the process of cheese production, and contains everything that is soluble from milk after the pH is dropped to 4.6 during the coagulation process.
It is a solution of lactose in water, with some minerals and lactalbumin. The fat is removed and then processed for human foods. Processing can be done by simple drying, or the relative protein content can be increased by removing lipids and other non-protein materials. For example, spray drying after membrane filtration separates the proteins from whey.
Whey can be denatured by heat. High heat (such as the sustained high temperatures above 72 °C associated with the pasteurization process) denatures whey proteins. While native whey protein does not aggregate upon renneting or acidification of milk, denaturing the whey protein triggers hydrophobic interactions with other proteins, and the formation of a protein gel. Heat-denatured whey can still cause allergies in some people.

The use of whey protein as a source of amino acids and its effect on reducing the risks of diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes has been the focus of ongoing research as of 2007.
Whey is an abundant source of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which are used to stimulate protein synthesis. When leucine is ingested in high amounts, such as with whey protein supplementation, there is greater stimulation of protein synthesis, which may speed recovery and adaptation to stress on muscles (exercise). Whey has approximately three grams of leucine per serving and the threshold for optimal protein synthesis is three grams.
As with other forms of protein, consumption of whey protein shortly after vigorous exercise can boost muscle hypertrophy.
Scientific evidence has shown that proteins high in essential amino acids (EAA), branched chain amino acids (BCAA), and particularly leucine (Leu) are associated with increased muscle protein synthesis, weight loss, body fat loss, and decreased plasma insulin and triglyceride profile.
