    Mixing Oatmeal and Protein Powder


    I have a quick question - is there any negative effect with mixing whey or casein powder into hot oatmeal?

    I usually cook my oatmeal and then mix in my powders, but I want to know if denaturation occurs and the protein loses any of it's biological function.

    I don't think the oatmeal is anywhere near hot enough for denaturing to take place. That being said, I usually just throw uncooked oats, protein, 2 cups of milk, and whatever in a blender. No need to cook the oats. However, the first couple days your stomach may hurt a bit after ingesting uncooked oats.

    Its not hot enough to degrade the protein if your mixing after it enters the microwave. Even then I don't think it would degrade it all that much (seeing as how many flavored oatmeals come with powder in them and are cooked before use).
