It is recommended that you consume between 2-5 servings per day, dependant upon your own personal needs. A serving would be classed as 25g (one scoop) of whey protein concentrate. It is recommended that you take 1g of protein per pound of body weight, so adjust your intake accordingly.
Q. Why do I need to take protein?
Protein is absolutely essential to the repair and regrowth of your muscles. Put simply it's been shown that strength athletes need it for muscular growth to increase muscle mass and endurance athletes need it for muscular repair to stop them from over training. Ultimately all athletes and people who train have an elevated need for protein to help them cope with the demands of training and competition.
Q. Is all whey protein concentrate the same, regardless of which brand it is?
As a customer, we believe it is not only your right to demand the best, but also that you know you're getting the best. It is very true to say that not all proteins are created equal! We are committed to transparency and openness in all our products and that is why we provide the following information on all our protein products: 1. Product Profile - a complete overview of the product's background including our approval, location of manufacture and money back guarantee applicability 2. Protein Insight - a complete breakdown of the types and quantities of protein contained in the product 3. Product Testing - an up to date certificate of analysis which provides independent verification of the protein content. If you don't buy from TPW™, we would urge you to demand this information from your current supplier. Simple as that!
Q. How can I tell if the protein I use is a good quality protein?
Keys signs to look for are the level of protein declared on the label. Look for whey protein concentrate with a minimum of 80%. Unflavoured, pure whey protein concentrate should be smooth with a neutral dairy taste. It should be easy to mix and with little froth. Of course the ultimate way to know is from the results you get from taking the product.
Q. Does your flavoured whey protein powder contain artificial flavouring and colouring?
We like to keep things pure, so you won't have to worry about finding any artificial colours or flavours in any TPW™ products. That's not just marketing talk, that's a promise!
Q. Is whey protein suitable for vegetarians and vegans ?
Q. Can I take whey protein concentrate with other supplements?
Yes, no problem. We recommend you always check serving instructions on each product if you plan on taking a combination. Whey protein concentrate is most commonly taken with Creatine, Pure Fine Oats, BCAA and Glutamine.
Q. Can I take too much protein?
If you don't burn the excess calories that come with the additional protein, it may lead to increased body fat. No other side effects have been noted.
Q. How do I make the perfect whey protein shake?
There are a few things to bear in mind if you are looking to make the perfect protein shake. First of all you need a quality protein like our Whey Protein 80. You will also need a decent blender rather than a shaker. We recommend the TPW™ Master Blender. Then pour your preferred amount of liquid into the blender. Bear in mind that milk will provide a creamier shake but water will avoid the extra fat that comes with milk. Next, drop one scoop of protein into the liquid, screw on the lid and shake well. It's not rocket science, but follow the basic principles and you'll be making great tasting shakes for years to come.
Q. How do I know how much whey protein concentrate is in Blends if it is not on the label along with other protein sources?
The truth is guys, you wont be able to tell! Some unscrupulous brands don't declare the protein breakdown of the protein types and quantities used in their products. Different types of protein cost different amounts and they can offer quite different levels of quality. Through "engineering" products, it is possible to achieve and declare a high level of protein on a label through using different types of protein and lower quality raw ingredients.
If a protein product states a high protein content but is unbelievably cheap, then you should seriously question its credentials. We're one of the few brands in the UK that actually manufactures their products in-house so there isn't much we don't know about protein and sports supplements. In addition, we declare the amount of each protein contained in each TPW™ product. No bull, no smoke and mirrors, just TPW™ full transparency on what you're getting.
Q. What if any side effects will I get from taking whey protein concentrate?
We haven't heard of any nasty side effects from taking whey protein other than maybe increased flatulence! Provided you don't have an allergy to dairy proteins or need to restrict dairy products for medical reasons, you should be fine. If you are allergic to dairy proteins, please consult your doctor prior to consuming any type of whey protein.
Q. Do any foods contain whey protein concentrate?
No, there are no foods that contain whey protein concentrate. There are many foods that contain high levels of protein, such as red meat, chicken, turkey, fish, eggs and cheese.
Q.What does whey protein concentrate actually do?
It plays a vital role in post workout nutrition. It gives your body a fast injection of protein at that vital time after you've exercised when your body is in a catabolic state and basically gives your muscles the nutrients they need to repair and regrow.
Q. What effects should I expect from taking whey protein concentrate alongside my training regime?
Results vary depending on your diet, nutrition, training and individual body type. For an average individual, it can help increase lean muscle mass and support an increased metabolic rate. It can also aid reduced muscle breakdown post exercise and improved recovery times, as well as faster muscle repair post workout. In simple terms, you should be able to get back in the gym quicker for your next workout .
Q. Who should take / benefit from using whey protein concentrate?
Bodybuilders and strength athletes / endurance athletes / those on a controlled weight loss diet / those new to weight training / people involved in team sports
