General information about whey protein
Whey protein is one of the most effective proteins for athletes. It is mainly known for its high biological value, its high content of essential amino acids and its fast absorption capacity. The biological value provides information about the efficiency with which the nutritional proteins can be converted into the body’s own proteins. Whey protein has a biological value of 104 and thus the highest of all individual proteins.
Whey protein is particularly suitable for muscle building and maintenance, but can also be used for dieting and muscle definition. The complete amino acid profile, the high biological value and the high protein content of 100g make Whey Protein the most popular protein shake for athletes.
