QUESTION OF THE WEEK
What's the Difference Between Whey and Slow Release Protein?
Slow Release and Whey proteins come from the same dairy source. When milk is separated into curds and whey, the curds go to make Slow Release protein (also known as Casein) and the whey goes to… well, Whey protein.
When made into a shake, either with water or other liquids, Whey protein will reach your muscles to start repairing them after exercise in around 20 minutes or so. This is why Whey is a great protein to take straight after a workout.
Slow Release protein does exactly what it says on the pack. It releases slowly to feed your muscles over time, which is why its perfect for before bed to help your muscles recover while your sleeping. It’s also good if you know you’re going to have a long break between meals and want something to keep you feeling full.
