A2 milk was all anyone could talk about just a year ago but, as the quest for a “healthy” milk continues, has everyone forgotten about their protein powder?
Protein shakes are often associated with feeling bloated or full but much of this is down to the casein structure of cow’s milk that makes up the whey protein. Goat and sheep’s milk have smaller fat globules and a different casein structure to cow’s milk, making it easier for people to digest.
Protein supplementation has become increasingly popular in recent years, expanding past the gym scene and making its mark amongst the wider public who are more interested in using protein powders as part of their diet to reach the right nutrition levels as part of a healthy, active lifestyle.
Lifestyle nutrition brand Nutristrength has been a big part of this movement and saw a gap in the market for an easy-drinking protein that’s easier for people to digest.
When you go to the gym or exercise, the last thing you want is to feel sluggish or bloated afterwards because of your protein shake. Goat and Sheep Whey Protein is the natural alternative that has a creamy texture and is easy-drinking. Nutristrength recently published an article explaining the science behind goat and sheep protein, produced in association with research scientist Rahmat Attaie Ph.D. of Prairie View A&M University, who has written many papers on the benefits of goat milk.
A2 milk brands asserted the digestive benefits of this alternative milk, with many saying it could even offer a solution for lactose-intolerance sufferers. Goat and Sheep Whey Protein offers similar benefits and could provide a viable protein alternative for people who struggle to digest traditional whey protein powders.
