What makes Devotion Nutrition protein so incredible?
What makes Devotion Nutrition protein so incredible? We love to shout from the rooftops at how high quality our protein is. We are so proud of that and if you ask our devoted customers they will tell you after trying so many brands they finally found one that not only tastes delicious, bakes like a dream but also digests the best. Now we want to tell you WHY! It has to do with the quality of the protein we use because there is a difference. Not all protein is created equally. It’s just like saying, “all cars are the same.” Well yes, they have four wheels but when you look under the hood at the engine and you see and feel the quality, you know what separates the Corolla from the Bentley!
Devotion uses a very high quality whey isolate protein. We do not use any whey concentrate like some other brands do, often to help bring down the cost, and we will tell you why. Whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate are both great options for boosting your protein intake, but there are a few key differences between them. Here's why whey protein isolate is considered superior:
- Higher protein content: Whey protein isolate typically has a higher protein content than whey protein concentrate, making it a more efficient way to hit your protein goals. It has a very high protein content, typically around 90% or higher, making it one of the purest forms of protein available. Whey concertrate has a lower protein content, typically around 70-80%, compared to the 90% or higher in whey isolate. Whey isolate is also considered to be a "complete" protein, meaning it contains all of the essential amino acids that the body needs to function optimally. Whey concentrate is considered a "partial" protein, meaning it lacks some of the essential amino acids that are present in whey isolate.
- Lower lactose and fat content: Whey protein isolate undergoes more processing, which results in a lower lactose and fat content than whey protein concentrate. This can be beneficial for people who are lactose intolerant or looking to reduce their fat intake. Whey concentrate contains more lactose and fat than whey isolate, which can make it less suitable for people with lactose intolerance or those looking to reduce their fat intake. This is why some people say certain proteins don’t agree with their stomach but Devotion doesn’t give them any issues. Using strictly whey isolate helps reduce any digestive issues. Plus, Devotion has built in digestive enzymes as another layer of digestive protection. We want you to get all of the benefits from our protein.
- Higher price: As you might expect, whey protein isolate is typically more expensive than whey protein concentrate due to the additional processing required. However, some people believe the extra cost is worth it for the higher quality protein.
Devotion is 80% whey isolate and 20% micellar casein. A whey isolate / casein blend protein is like the superhero of the protein world. Combining whey isolate with casein creates a "time-released" protein that provides both fast and slow-digesting protein sources. This can support muscle growth over an extended period of time, making it a great option for both pre- and post-workout nutrition. The combination of whey isolate and casein can also help to increase satiety, or the feeling of fullness, which can help to reduce overall calorie intake and support weight management goals. Whey isolate casein blends are also highly soluble and easy to digest, making them a convenient option for those who struggle with protein digestion or absorption.
Micellar casein protein is a pretty special type of protein for a few reasons. t's slow-digesting, which means it can provide a steady supply of amino acids to your muscles over a longer period of time compared to other types of protein. This can be helpful for promoting muscle growth and recovery after workouts. It has a high leucine content, which is a key amino acid for stimulating muscle protein synthesis. This can help your muscles grow and repair themselves more efficiently. Micellar casein protein is also considered to be highly bioavailable, meaning it's easily absorbed and utilized by the body. This can make it a more efficient source of protein compared to some other types.
So as you can see, Devotion Nutrition took the time to select the protein sources used for very specific reasons. We not only want our customers to love their protein but also know its important to select high quality ingredients. Once you try Devotion you can understand what separates it from the rest.
