The Different Types of Protein
Your Protein Supplement Options
Below is a short introduction and description of each type of protein we’re able to mass-produce within our state-of-the-art facility.
Whey Protein Isolate: Much like other protein powders, whey protein isolate is made from milk. The milk is first filtered to remove the fat and lactose, and what’s left is a concentrated form of whey protein. This concentrate is then further processed to remove even more fat and lactose, leaving behind a powder that is 90% or more protein by weight. Whey protein isolate is often considered the “gold standard” of protein powders, as it is the purest and most concentrated form of whey protein available. It is also very quickly absorbed by the body, making it ideal for post-workout recovery. However, because of its purity, whey protein isolate can also be more expensive than other types of protein powder.
Whey Protein Concentrate: Whey protein concentrate is a type of protein supplement made from milk. It is one of the most popular types of protein supplements on the market and is often used by bodybuilders and other athletes to help build muscle mass. Whey protein concentrate is made by removing the water and lactose from milk and then extracting the whey protein from the remaining milk solids. The whey protein is then purified and concentrated before being packaged as a powder that contains 25% or more protein. Whey protein concentrate is an excellent source of protein and provides all the essential amino acids your body needs to build muscle. It is also low in fat and carbohydrates, making it a very efficient source of calories for athletes trying to lose body fat.
Collagen Protein: As the most abundant protein in the animal kingdom, collagen is a key structural component in the human body. It can be found in tendons, ligaments, skin, and bone and is responsible for providing strength and support. The first step in manufacturing is to extract the collagen from animal sources. This raw material is typically derived from the skin, bones, and connective tissues of animals such as cows, pigs, and chickens. The next step is to purify the collagen to remove any impurities or contaminants, ensuring that it remains protected from sunlight and moisture as a dry environment is key to its production. This purified collagen is then used to create a variety of collagen-based products, such as supplements, skincare products, and medical devices.
Casein Protein: Casein protein is a slow-digesting milk-based protein, making it ideal for post-workout recovery. To make casein protein, manufacturers start with skim milk. The milk is then pasteurized and centrifuged to remove the fat. Next, the milk is heated to denature the whey proteins. This step helps the casein proteins to clump together, making them easier to extract. After the whey proteins have been removed, the casein proteins are precipitated out of the solution using acid or salt. The casein proteins are then collected and dried to form a powder. Casein protein is typically around 80% protein by weight. It is a complete protein, meaning it contains all of the essential amino acids your body needs. Casein protein is also very rich in glutamine, an amino acid that is important for immune system function and gut health. It is also a good choice for people who are lactose intolerant, as it is very low in lactose.
Egg Protein Powder: Egg protein powder is a popular choice for athletes and bodybuilders looking to gain muscle mass. It is also a common ingredient in many commercial protein shakes and bars. Egg protein powder is made from eggs that have been dried and then ground into a fine powder. The drying process helps preserve the egg’s nutrients, making it a very concentrated source of protein. One advantage of egg protein powder is that it is very easy to digest and absorb. This makes it an ideal choice for those who have trouble digesting other forms of protein, such as whey or casein. Egg protein powder is also a good source of essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Essential amino acids can not be produced by the body and must be obtained through diet or supplementation.
Beef Protein Powder: Beef protein powder is a dietary supplement made from beef that has been dried and ground into a fine powder. It is a source of high-quality protein that can be used to help build muscle mass, as well as provide other health benefits. The manufacturing process begins with selecting the highest quality beef possible. The beef is then trimmed of any fat and gristle and cut into small pieces. These pieces are then placed in a dehydrator, where they are slowly dried until they reach a powder-like consistency. The beef protein powder is then packaged and sold as a dietary supplement. Beef protein powder is an excellent source of protein for athletes and bodybuilders, as it is a complete protein that contains all of the essential amino acids needed for muscle growth and repair. In addition, beef protein powder is also a good source of iron, zinc, and other minerals. It is also low in fat and calories, making it an ideal dietary supplement for those watching their weight.
Chicken Protein Powder: Chicken protein powder is a type of protein supplement made from chicken meat. It is typically made through a process of grinding and drying the chicken meat and then extracting the protein. Chicken protein powder is high in protein and low in fat and can be used to increase protein intake for people trying to gain weight or build muscle. It can also be used as a source of protein for people who are trying to lose weight. In addition, chicken protein powder is a good source of essential amino acids and can also help to promote recovery from exercise.
Fish Protein Powder: Fish protein powder is a type of protein supplement that is made from fish. Fish protein powder is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, making it an excellent source of nutrition for athletes and bodybuilders. Fish protein powder can be used to increase muscle mass, reduce recovery time after workouts, and improve overall health. Fish protein powder is made from fish that have been caught in the wild or raised on fish farms. The fish are then cleaned and filleted, and the flesh is ground into a fine powder. The powder is then dried and packaged for sale. Please note that your fish protein powder should be stored in a refrigerator.
Bone Broth Protein Powder: Bone broth protein powder is a dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly supplement made from dried and powdered bone broth. It is a source of protein, minerals, and collagen and can be used to increase the nutrient content of smoothies, soups, and other recipes. Bone broth is made by simmering bones in water for an extended period of time. This process extracts minerals and other nutrients from the bones, which are then transferred to the broth. The bone broth is cooled, strained, and dried into a powder form. The resulting bone broth protein powder is a rich source of protein, amino acids, minerals, and collagen. It can be used to boost the nutrient content of smoothies, soups, and other recipes.
