Milk proteins, as the name suggests, are extracted from milk. They consist of two types of proteins – 80% is casein and 20% whey protein. It is them, on the basis of which the most popular protein supplements are created. Usually, in their composition, various forms of whey protein can be found (isolate, hydrolysate or concentrate), casein (micellar or other forms) or, simply milk protein obtained from the cow's milk, combining whey and casein protein.
Milk proteins are characterized by a very high biological value – they contain all essential amino acids that are necessary for proper functioning of the system and cannot be synthesized in the body. In addition, whey proteins contain unique bioactive components such as lactoperoxidase, lactoferrin, immunoglobulins, β-lactoglobulin, α-lactalbumin. They have a beneficial effect on general health, have antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
In our offer, you will find a wide range of supplements based on milk proteins. They are recommended especially to athletes – an intense physical exercise correlates with an increased need for proteins, and their deficit slows down or even prevents the growth of muscle mass.
