This round-table discussion brings together a protein supplier, an experienced consultant and protein researcher, and a leading manufacturer of sports nutrition products.
Discussion topics include the effectiveness of different protein sources (whey, casein, soy, rice, hemp, pea, chia, flax, egg, etc) in relation to their amino acid profiles, the protein quality, absorption, other nutritional values, and price.
Is it really all about leucine and whey, or can we use proteins from different sources or blends of amino acids to have the same effects? How much protein should an athlete consume?
And what potential is there for other ingredients, such as probiotics and enzymes, to ‘enhance the bioavailability’ of proteins?
