Oats are a popular source of nutrition for many people who often exercise actively. The added protein consists exclusively of whey. Proteins are the source of nitrogen and essential amino acids, which the body needs for tissue growth and maintenance. Therefore, the protein in Oat 'n' Whey contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass as well as the maintenance of normal bones *.
Whey protein from milk is a so-called complete protein, as it provides the body with all the necessary amino acids, including the 9 amino acids that are essential for intake, as the body cannot make them on its own.
Determination of the nutritional efficiency of protein in the diet is in most cases based on estimating the extent to which dietary protein nitrogen is absorbed and retained by the body and is able to balance daily nitrogen losses. Net protein utilization (NPU) is the percentage of nitrogen ingested that is retained in the body and the biological value (BV) indicates the percentage of absorbed nitrogen retained. Biological value is the product of NPU and digestibility. Whey protein has good digestibility and amino acid composition, so its biological value is great when compared to other dietary protein sources such as meat, fish, eggs or soy.
This product provides an extra extra amino acid, Taurine.
