I'm pretty sure this is an FAQ about Oats and whey.
If you mix Whey Protein powder with oats in hot water, does this cause any destruction to the protein?....
Boiling water I believe would cause the denaturization of whey proteins,
so keep the water temperature touchable and you should be fine.
I base this on denaturization of whey proteins above pasteurization temperatures.
I think that has been debunked before. This is how I prep mine.
1/2 cup old fashioned (not "quick") oats
1 cup water
Microwave 2 mins
Stir in 1 scoop ATW Cinnamon Bun
Good to go!
I'm only using 1/2 cup oats currently as I'm cutting. Most would use 1 cup oats, I assume.
its all about the temp. so if you make the oats, give them a little time to cool down to where they are an edible temp and then add the protein, its likely fine.
get yourself a bag of oat flour, blends right into a shake.
I grind mine up with a coffee grinder for shakes.
I take on`s oats and whey, just add some water and it`s done...
i like throw my 1/2 cup of oats in a blender with my whey and its gtg.
1/2 cup oats, 2 scoops ATW chocolate whey, 1 bananna, some natural peanut butter, skim milk. It tastes freaking AMAZING. I got this blender at Wal-Mart, HAMILTON BEACH PERSONAL BLENER for like 15 bucks and it works awesome! You blend your stuff and drink it right out of the blender and has a travel lid if you want to take it with you.
aiight thanks guys.
so it's safe to mix it AFTER the oats have cooled down a little and are at warm temperature...
I don't blend my oats. Unlike many people, I prefer to eat the oats rather than drink em.
not broscience here. go ahead and pour 8oz of boiling water into a glass that has 1 scoop of protein in it. It will get all gummy and nasty consistency. The thing is that in 30g of protein powder you have 25g of protein. In 30g of chicken, steak, etc you have around 5-6g protein. So the heat affects each differently.
Is the gummy boiled waterprotein still have amino acids in it and give protein value? sure, but it looses some and the texture blows. so sure it "works" by boiling it with the oatmeal, but i'd rather let the oatmeal cool down and not feel like i'm eating a bowl of glue
"Do not combine carbohydrates and protein alone, this elicits the highest insulin
response. For example, a cup of oatmeal has a moderate insulin response but
when you combine oatmeal with whey protein, you get a much higher response. If
you do combine these, be sure to add a fat source."

-Not saying i agree with this, cause i blend oats with my whey for 1st meal... after cardio. But now im confused...

Denatured from cooking means nothing. It gets denatured by stomach acid anyway. The point is mute.
Except the consistency thing; that is quite valid.
the consistency thing will only affect digestion rate. basically what is going on to create that thick, stringy texture is that the heat is breaking down the original chemical bonds (denaturing) the protein, then that same heat is allowing the newly freed amino acids to rebond w/ each other more strongly than before. denatured protein maintains the same amino profile as undenatured protein... YOU ARE NOT MISSING OUT ON ANYTHING... the only thing to consider is that the same heat that denatured that protein has probably allowed to it to rebond more strongly than before, slightly lengthening digestion/absorption rate. this might actually be optimal for oats and whey considering the whey would normally digest faster than the oats. allowing the stuff to thicken up might actually put the digestion times closer in line... something to consider.
