In the short time I've lurked and poster here, I noticed that people by and large favor whole food regardless of macronutrient values. I just thought this was interesting, althought the article seems to be attempting to sell some products (given that there are some links to where you can buy supplements):
"Which Protein Is Best?
Egg whites, turkey, chicken, beef, etc. have low biological values (BV) compared to the protein supplements listed here. Cooking causes cross-linking which is a form of oxidation. It causes an undesirable bond between nucleic acids and proteins (free radical activity). You are consuming damaged protein.
Well-processed whey hydrolysate (pre-digested) is by far the best protein on the market. It has the highest BV of any protein. BV is the measure that scientists use to rate how well nitrogen is absorbed into muscles. Studies show that whey hydrolysate is much more effective than free form amino acids, soy, egg whites, and casein proteins.
Whey contains all of the essential and nonessential amino acids and has the three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) in the highest concentrations found in nature. The BCAAs make up one third of muscle protein. L-Leucine, L-Valine, and L-Isoleucine make up the BCAAs. L-Leucine is used up faster than L-Valine or L-Isoleucine. Therefore, L-Leucine should make up the highest content of the three in the protein supplement you choose. All of the supplements listed here have been formulated based on this science. Space your protein consumption throughout the day. Some people have a hard time digesting more than 30 grams of protein per sitting. And don't forget about our high whey protein cookies (15-18 gm/cookie) and bars (20-32 gm/bar)."
I'm not really buying into all of this, but I'd like to see the hard facts that refute this guy's claims. I've seen others back up whey hydrolysate also, although I've also seen claims backing up cassein. Does anyone have some articles that are fundamental reading when it comes to this?
