Whey protein isolate is known for being one of the cleanest and best tasting protein powders on the market, with an impressive protein content and little to no carbohydrates or fat. Hydrolyzed whey protein may be the only faster-digesting form of whey protein that is currently available on the market, but along with its ease of absorption comes a significant increase in bitterness that tends to drive people away from the product. Well, what if you could have the best of both worlds in one powder? Now you can, with the debut of True Nutrition‘s Debitterized Hydrolyzed Whey Protein!
Unlike most other forms of hydrolyzed whey protein, the Debitterized Hydrolyzed Whey Protein will have a significantly-improved taste, making it much easier to consume than most other hydrolyzed whey proteins on the market. The increased bitterness that typically occurs in these materials results from the isolation of amino acids in to smaller di- and tripeptide chains, which are inherently more bitter than the complete protein peptide. Because the Debitterized Hydrolyzed Whey Protein is only subjected to a total of 3% hydrolysis as opposed to many other versions of the material, it is able to retain the same great taste as a whey protein isolate, while benefiting from a superior molecular weight profile!
Debitterized Hydrolyzed Whey Protein contains just over 80% protein by volume, and like all other forms of whey, it is a natural source of both branched chain and essential amino acids. It will, however, have a slightly elevated fat and carbohydrate content over most standard whey protein isolates. The concentration of di- and tripeptides within the material allow for quicker and more complete digestion of the material, making the Debitterized Hydrolyzed Whey Protein an ideal part of any post-workout formula.
Because the Debitterized Hydrolyzed Whey Protein tastes and mixes so great, it can easily be added to any of True Nutrition‘s delicious flavoring systems without any cause for concerns. Many users will mix this material with added carbohydrates if they intend to use it as part of their post-workout mix. One popular formula can be found below:
Ultra Recovery Formula:
In addition, many users will often add their own free form amino acids, such as L-Glutamine and Branched Chain Amino Acids or our signature formula BCAA Plus, to help speed recovery and improve protein metabolism following their workout.*
True Nutrition also offers a variety of other hydrolyzed protein sources with varying levels of bitterness stemming from their increased time spent under hydrolysis:
- Hydrolyzed Whey Protein High Grade (1lb.)
- Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Super Grade (1lb.)
- Peptopro Hydrolyzed Caseinate (1lb.)
