Hundreds of questions are asked every week
about protein powders especially whey protein on social media and question and answer sites
on the web. The answers given to these questions can be
quite ridiculous. They tend to present two extremes. On one hand, whey protein is like a magic
bullet for muscle gain, akin to anabolic steroids. And, on the other, whey protein is pretty
much like ingesting strychnine. One comment I’ve come across, lately, about
protein powders is that they are synthetic, and made from chemicals. And as a result, they are poison. To put it as succinctly as possible: This
is just ignorant. It not only shows ignorance about protein
powders, but about the meaning of the word synthetic. As for chemicals, you already know that everything
is made from chemicals. We just don’t make it all with our own hands. So, protein powders are NOT synthetic. The word synthetic, in regards to any sort
of chemical substance, would refer to something that was made by chemical or biological synthesis. So, for protein powders to be synthetic, it
would mean that they were manufactured or assembled in a lab, or at least in lab-like
conditions, probably from single aminos, or di- or tripeptides. Can you imagine how difficult this would be? How expensive? How impossible? Whey protein comes from milk. Casein protein also comes from milk. And soy protein comes from soybeans. They’re all naturally occurring proteins. Now, they’re processed in various ways to
make different grades of protein powders. So, whey is processed to make concentrates
or isolates. Or, whey powders are made with all sorts of
different properties to fit the needs of the food industry. This is not synthesis. It’s just a process of taking out certain
components, or certain protein fractions, through a filtering process or some other
process. The proteins that are left are still just
proteins. I really don’t know what people imagine when
they make these types of statements. You know, there’s no mad scientist in a lab
making Frankenstein soybeans and injecting them with electricity and poison, and then
isolating the protein from it, and making powders from it.It just doesn’t work that
way. If you would like to learn more about how
whey protein powders are processed, see the link that’s appearing on your screen now,
or in the description below. I’ve written a huge resource that should tell
you everything you ever wanted to know about whey protein, and also, it will define all
the various terms that you encounter about whey protein powder supplements. Thanks for viewing.
