What are proteins?

Protein is the macronutrient that everyone who plays sports immediately thinks of. Protein is often linked to muscle growth or recovery, but protein has many other functions as well. 

The body is largely composed of protein, making an adequate intake essential for our health.

For whom.

Proteins are important for everyone. They are part of a balanced and balanced diet. As described above, they are not only important for athletes but are essential for our health. 

What are Whey proteins?

Whey protein is a collection of proteins created as a byproduct of making cheese. To say that this is therefore bad for you is to say that it's better not to eat cheese. Pure nonsense, then.

Whey is a fast-absorbing form of protein which makes it extremely suitable around exercise, but also as a snack to achieve your daily protein intake easily(er).

What are the benefits of Whey protein during exercise?

  • Increased and faster protein intake
  • Stimulate muscle growth
  • Counteracting muscle loss during a fat loss phase
  • Limit fat mass during calorie surplus

Important to note, is that these effects cannot be linked solely to whey protein. Other sources bring about all of this as well, but with whey it will be more efficient. 

What forms are all there? 

  • Whey Concentrate: 
    • About 80% protein
    • More carbohydrates and fats
    • More lactose
  • Whey Isolate: 
    • About 90% protein
    • Less carbohydrates and fats
    • Less lactose
  • Whey Hydrolyzed:
    • About 95% protein
    • Very few carbohydrates and fats
    • More suitable for people sensitive to lactose
    • Disadvantage: less delicious taste

What is the recommended amount?



General health

1.2 - 1.6g per kg body weight


1.2 - 1.7g per kg body weight

Strength Training

1.8 - 2.7g per kg body weight


0.4 - 0.6g per kg body weight per meal


1. Proteins are bad for the kidneys.

Studies have repeatedly shown that protein has no harmful effects in people without existing kidney problems.


2. Only 30g of protein can be absorbed per meal.

All proteins are absorbed by the body. In fact, proteins are not only used in function of our muscles. There are many processes in the body that make eating protein necessary. Is it necessary to eat a huge amount? No, of course not. The amount depends from person to person and from body to body. 


Use Whey (Isolate) as a convenient tool to help achieve your daily protein intake and requirement in an easy and quality way.
