Protein Delite’s protein source contributes to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass and also to the maintenance of normal bones. Protein Delite contains milk proteins, including whey and casein, both so-called complete protein, because they provide the body with all necessary amino acids, including the 9 amino acids (i.e. Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine) that are considered essential for life, because the body cannot synthesize them. Determination of the nutritional efficiency of protein in the diet is in most cases based on estimating the extent to which dietary protein nitrogen is absorbed and retained by the body and is able to balance daily nitrogen losses. Net Protein Utilisation (NPU) is the percentage of ingested nitrogen that is retained in the body, and the Biological Value (BV) gives the percentage of absorbed nitrogen that is retained. Biological Value is the product of NPU and digestibility. Whey protein has good digestibility and amino acid composition, thus it’s Biological Value is great compared to other dietary protein sources like meat, fish, eggs or soy. Protein Delite has added extra amino acids, Taurine and L-Glutamine, the latter being the most abundant free amino acid in human blood. These statements have been scientifically proven by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and authorized by the European Commission (EC).
