Shopping for protein powders can be overwhelming. There are countless options from animal to plant-based, from isolates to concentrates, and everything in between. The different options are endless, so how do you know what is right for you?
Protein can be derived from numerous sources and although these sources may be equally delicious, the proteins are not the same. At Magnum, our favourite protein sources are the most effective at supplying your body with pure, clean protein: isolates.
Protein isolates are the highest-quality protein sources available, filtered to remove as much fat, lactose, and other non-protein constituents as possible. Isolate proteins include whey protein, milk protein, micellar casein, and egg protein. These sources are highly efficient for building muscle, recovery, and supporting active lifestyles.
Whey Protein Isolate
Whey protein isolate is the most commonly used protein source in protein powders. Whey is the liquid by-product of creating dairy products, such as cheese or yogurt. It is naturally high in protein and low in fat, making it great for those looking to build lean muscle.
High-quality whey protein isolate will help your muscles recover and grow faster because it begins digesting in 15 minutes. It is quickly absorbed after your workout ensuring that your muscles are fueled when they need it the most.
Whey protein isolate will continue to flood your bloodstream for up to 3 hours, so your muscles are hit with a quick surge of protein. This also stops any catabolism that may have been taking place.
Milk Protein Isolate
Milk protein isolates are made from whole milk. Creating milk protein isolates starts by removing the lactose from the milk, leaving behind the casein and whey. This protein contains less than 3% fat and digests at a medium rate.
Milk protein isolate starts to absorb about 45 minutes after consumption and it will continue to digest for up to four hours. Milk protein isolates provide the essential amino acids for muscle growth that are easy to digest with virtually zero lactose.
Egg Protein Isolate
Egg protein isolates are naturally low in fat because they are derived from egg whites. Egg protein is second only to whey as the highest source of leucine, the BCAA that plays the largest role in muscle health and cell growth. Egg protein isolate is abundant in sulphur-bearing amino acids critical for enhancing cell repair.
Egg protein isolate is a medium-digesting protein. It starts absorbing 90 minutes after consumption and continues for up to four hours.
Micellar Casein Isolate
Micellar casein isolate is the slow-digesting protein derived from separating milk through a filtration process rather than using chemicals. This isolate continues feeding your body protein for up to six hours, keeping your body in a positive nitrogen balance longer than other types of protein. Micellar casein is “anti-catabolic” and helps reduce muscle breakdown.
