Protein & Your Health

Protein is a vital component for almost every cell of your body. Research shows that protein plays an important role in tissue repair, the generation of skin, blood, hair and bones as well as to make enzymes, hormones, and more.

Protein Found in Blint Shakes

Blint Shakes is composed of 100% whey protein. Whey protein is a complete protein derives from milk and is formed as a by-product in cheese-making. It contains high levels of essential amino acids (all 9 essential amino acids) and has a high biological value.

Biological Value of Protein

A protein that has a high biological value means that it contains the essential amino acids in a proportion similar to that required by the body. The biological value reveals how readily protein that is broken down from food can be used in protein synthesis in the cells of the human body. Certain protein sources are more readily accessed by the body via digestive processes (for example: whey protein).

Whey Composition in Blint Shakes

Blint Shakes contains a combination of three forms of whey protein: whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, and hydrolyzed whey protein.

  1. Whey Protein Concentrate contains roughly 80% protein and 20% consists of mostly lactose, fat, minerals and moisture
  2. Whey Protein Isolate is the purest form of whey protein and contains roughly 90-95% protein. It is very low in fat and lactose content.
  3. Hydrolyzed Whey Protein is a form of whey protein that has been broken down into shorter chains known as peptides. It contains roughly 80-90% protein. This form requires less digestion as it has already gone through partial hydrolysis. Partial Hydrolysis is a necessary process for the body to absorb protein.
