The word is out. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware that diets high in protein offer a wide range of health benefits, from weight management and healthy aging to exercise recovery. Thanks to years of scientifically sound research funded by the U.S. dairy checkoff program, whey proteins are poised to deliver on this revitalization.
Whey protein is a high-quality protein naturally found in dairy. It is a complete, easily digestible protein containing all of the essential amino acids the body needs. Whey protein also is one of the best sources of branched-chain amino acids, including leucine, which has been shown to stimulate muscle synthesis.
