All about protein
Protein represents about 16% of our total body weight and is composed of building blocks called amino acids. Each gram of protein contains 4 calories. Whey protein has the highest bioavailability, which means that it contains all the essential amino acids and is well absorbed by the body. Animal protein sources such as chicken, fish and eggs are first class sources of protein as they contain all the essential amino acids. Vegetarian sources of protein such as soy and lentils are second class sources of protein as they don't contain all the essential amino acids and have a lesser bioavailability compared to first class sources of protein, which means that all the protein from vegetarian sources isn’t fully absorbed by the body. Vegetarian high protein foods include sprouted moong, legumes, paneer and soya.
Functions of protein

- Helps is repair and recovery of new tissues
- Maintains the body's water and ph balance
- Plays a key role in enzyme activity and hormone synthesis
- Maintains the body's water and ph balance

Dietary protein requirement
The required daily allowance (RDA) of protein is between 10-35% of our total daily calorie intake. According to experts, a sedentary adult requires a minimum of 0.8 grams per kg of body weight. Since vegetarians don't get protein from first class protein sources (proteins containing all the essential amino acids), vegetarians require 1 gram of protein per kg of body weight. For athletes, bodybuilders and people who engage in any form of weight training or workout. The protein requirement can range from 1.5 to 2 grams per kg of bodyweight, depending on activity levels.

Types of whey protein
There are 3 types of whey protein
Whey protein is a by product from the process of cheese production. Whey is classified into three types based on the level of filtration it goes through and the amount of lactose it contains:
1. Whey concentrate: is fast absorbing and contains a higher level of lactose compared to isolate and hydrolised whey. They by product of the cheese making process (unflitered whey) is filtered and processed to give whey concentrate.
2. Whey isolate: Whey concentrate undergoes further processing and filtartion to form whey isolate. Isolate whey is lower in lactose, lower in carbs and fats and is faster absorbing when compared to whey concentarate. People who are lactose intolerant usualy prefer consuming isolate over concentrate.
3. Hydrolised whey: This is the purest form of whey protein and contains zero lactose
Benefits of whey protein powder

Maintaining lean muscle and bone health
According to research, after the age of 30 a person can lose anywhere upto 3 to 5 percent of muscle mass per decade which leads to reduction in strength and puts you at risk of certain conditions such as sarcopenia. The amino acid leucine which is one of the essential amino acids found in whey protein helps in preserving muscle and maintaining strength. Roughly 50% of the bone volume is made up of protein, therefore adequate amounts of protein are also required to maintain bone health and prevent osteoperosis.
