Whey protein is the most popular type of protein supplement available today. Produced as a byproduct from milk coagulation (to make cheese or yoghurt), whey has a high protein content. But how does Whey compare with Hemp Protein?
Whey protein is rapidly digested, making it a good product to take after heavy exercise, as it is quickly utilised by the body. Hemp protein is slow digesting, making it ideal for supplementation between meals and before bedtime.
It is important to note that, unlike GOOD Hemp Nutrition range, most whey protein supplements are mixed with artificial ingredients and sweeteners in order to make it more palatable. These additional ingredients can detract from weight loss goals, cause sugar craving and suppress immune function.
Whey protein causes digestive disturbances and bloating in people who are lactose intolerant. Do not use whey protein if you have a milk allergy. There have been no allergies or intolerances associated with hemp and hemp protein.
