What are the different kinds of products found after making protein powder?

Gainers: these are mixtures of proteins and carbohydrates. The goal of this product is to provide a large amount of calories to promote weight gain.

Whey protein: it’s a whey that’s also called whey protein. It makes up 20% of milk proteins. It’s a protein of high digestibility and has a high content of branched chain amino acids. It’s a rapid-assimilation protein. It has a rather anabolic effect.

Whey concentrate: this product contains about 80g of protein per 100g of powder

Whey isolate: this product contains 90g of protein per 100g of powder or more

Whey hydrolysate: This product contains about 80% peptides (small proteins). It’s the product that can be assimilated the most rapidly.

Bio-active whey: These are usually peptide-enriched whey with specific properties for muscle growth.

Casein: this is the other component of milk, and constitutes 80% of milk protein. Casein is a slow-assimilation protein. They have a rather anti-catabolic effect.

Calcium caseinate: This is usually a concentrated product. Here, casein is denatured and has lost its configuration (micelles) so it is less well absorbed.

Micellar casein: it’s a kind of casein isolate. The protein is preserved, allowing a slow diffusion of the amino acids. It is also found in whole milk proteins.

Soya proteins: these are proteins used mainly by vegetarians or vegans. It is a rather anti-catabolic protein.

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs): They optimise recovery and muscle mass gain as BCAAs are used during exercise.They are absorbed relatively quickly, which gives them the property of being slightly anabolic.
