Tiger Brand Whey Protein Concentrate
80% concentrated to give outstanding nutritional and functional
benefits. Our line of whey protein concentrates feature outstanding
functional and nutritional attributes, and possess a bland flavor
profile so they won't impart any off flavors to delicate flavored
products. This protein is derived from superior milk sources at the
largest single dairy processing facility in the United States. The
freshness of the Jersey and Holstein cow milk supply, and the
cleanliness of the processing operation result in an exceptional
quality protein product.
Our protein is processed through an agglomeration procedure (slow,
low heat drying of whey powder) to ensure that it will dissolve easily
in liquid. Our whey protein is the highest quality powdered protein
available on the market today.
Whey is 100% compatible to the body and of all the proteins is the
most similar in structure to human mother's milk. Because whey protein
is so easy to digest the body will utilize practically 100% of it; as
opposed to other sources such as soy protein, which is difficult to
digest. The highest grade of whey protein that you can get is 80%
whey. You can get soy protein that may be as high as 90% to 95%
protein but the body may only utilize a small percentage of it.
Protein comes in different qualities
Not all whey proteins on the shelf of the health food stores are a
high quality 80% whey formula. Many are a blend of other elements,
often being fructose (fruit sugars), and a low percentage of whey.
They can have as low of a grade as 15% and still be classified and
sold as "whey protein".
Watch the dosage
An 80% whey protein will have approximately 6 to 6.5 grams of protein
per tablespoon. The lower grade whey protein will often provide a
plastic scoop device inside the container to assist the user in
measuring the proper dosage. These plastic scoops are extremely large
and may hold anywhere from 2 to 6 tablespoons of protein per scoop.
The instructions on the container may tell you to use from 1 to 4 of
these "scoops" per serving in order to obtain the proper
dose of protein.
How much protein should I take?
A good dose of high quality 80% whey protein should be
approximately 18 to 20 grams per serving depending on your body size,
any more than that may cause gas buildup in the body.
If you cannot get 18 grams of protein from 3 tablespoons then you
are dealing with a low grade of protein. Those who have heavy-duty
workouts or weight lift routines will need approximately 2/3 to
¾ grams of protein per 1 pound of body weight per day to assure
proper muscular reconstruction.
Here is a basic chart to help determine your protein dosage. Keep
in mind that one tablespoon equals 5 grams of bulk protein weight.
|Bulk Protein Wt.
||Pure Protein |
|5 gms =||1 = ||4 gms|
|10 gms =||2 =||8 gms|
|15 gms =||3 =||12 gms|
|20 gms =||4 =||16 gms|
|25 gms =||5 =||20 gms|
25 gms. of bulk protein weight = 5 tablespoons, would provide 20 gms. of pure protein.
It is best to obtain your protein through natural foods
However, if that is not possible then powdered whey is a good
supplement to help fulfill that requirement. As a general rule a 4 oz
serving of meat such as chicken, fish, or beef will provide about 35
grams of protein. An egg, depending on size, will provide about 12
grams of protein. Because protein in the form of meat or other
natural food sources take considerably longer for the body to digest
and absorb than a dosage of whey protein, you can consume a larger
amount without it's ill effects.
How often should I take protein?
The body does not store protein so you must ingest it with every meal.
Once food enters the body it is broken down and transformed into a
sugar, then distributed throughout the body as needed. Whatever the
body does not use at the time is stored in the form of fat cells. This
is why it is not good to eat large meals before going to sleep at
night. The ideal situation is to eat 4 or 5 smaller meals throughout
the day giving the body nourishment as it is needed thus preventing
this sugar from being stored on the body in the form of fat.
Protein is heavy on the stomach and should not be taken late at
night. Of all the foods that enter the body, protein is the hardest to
digest. Digesting food requires much energy from the body. The heart
must speed up and pump large amounts of blood into the stomach area in
order to aide the digestive mechanism; to get a good nights sleep it
is necessary for the heart to slow down considerably. You can see the
Water is a must
And is an important ingredient when digesting protein. It keeps the
digestive tract from clogging up. It can be compared to running water
in the sink while trying to grind up food in a garbage disposal.
Without the water it does not work so well.
The livers and the kidneys must filter every substance that enters
the body. Consuming large amounts of protein (in any form) without an
adequate supply of water can lead to kidney infections, kidney stones,
or even liver problems. Water also plays a major role in muscle
reconstruction, as well as calming the central nervous system.
