Frequently Asked Questions about Whey Protein Powder
What is Whey Protein?
If you’re new to the world of supplements, you may be wondering what whey protein is exactly.
To put it simply, whey protein is a naturally-occurring protein that is found in milk (hence our emphasis on sourcing only hormone-free, grass-fed milk for our protein products).
So, what makes whey protein so special?
Protein is made up of ‘building blocks’ called amino acids. Your body requires 20 amino acids, of which 11 are produced by the body itself.
This leaves what are known as nine essential amino acids. These are; tryptophan, threonine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine+cysteine, phenylalanine+tyrosine, valine, and histidine.
Of these amino acids, leucine, isoleucine and valine are classed as branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) - it’s these amino acids that provide the muscle building and repair elements of whey protein powder.
It's because of this that whey protein is considered a ‘complete’ source of protein - it contains all the essential amino acids your body needs to perform at its best.
According to the International Society of Sports Nutrition, a whey protein powder should contain between 20 to 30g of protein per serve and at least 5g of BCAAs per serve. Kinetica Sports’ whey protein powders meet these requirements.

What is Grass Fed Whey?
Grass-fed whey protein is a type of protein supplement that is made from the milk of grass-fed cows. The cows are raised on pastures where they are allowed to graze on grass and other natural vegetation, as opposed to being fed with grain or other feed that is commonly used in conventional farming. You can read further about what is grass fed whey and why is it important.
How is Whey Protein made?
As whey protein is derived from milk, it is obtained during the process of making cheese.
During the process, the whey protein is separated from another protein that is also present in milk - casein.
These two proteins are present in milk at a ratio of 20:80 (20% whey, 80% casein).
A series of steps are taken to completely separate the whey which is eventually subjected to spray drying. This creates the whey protein powder that you consume.
Who should take Whey Protein?
Whey Protein can be consumed by a variety of people, not just elite athletes. So, if you are a weekend warrior, play field sports or someone on a weight loss programme, taking whey can be beneficial for supporting your goals.
Whey Protein can also play a pivotal role in maintaining lean muscle as we age. There are studies to show that adequate protein intake is also important in preventing Sarcopenia, which age related muscle loss and strength. You can read our blog on how to decide on the best whey protein for you and your goals. We also have a blog outlining the 5 benefits of whey protein for women.

What are the benefits of taking Whey Protein?
Whey Protein has many benefits, such as aiding recovery following exercise. It is an important macronutrient for repair when the muscle has become damaged, and it is also essential for muscle growth.
Increasing protein intake when injured is important for preventing muscle loss. Individuals on a weight loss programme should increase their protein intake significantly above the RDA of 0.8g per kilogram of bodyweight. Aiming for 0.3g-0.5g per kilogram of body to maximise muscle growth.
The timing of protein intake is important and ideally should be spread evenly across each meal. The type of protein and the total amount of protein is also important. These a commonly knowing as the 3 T’s. You can learn more about when is the best time to take a protein shake.
Is whey protein powder good for you?
Yes. If you’re looking to improve your fitness, physique and general physical performance, whey protein should be an essential part of your diet.
As a complete source of protein containing all the essential amino acids your body needs, adding whey protein to your diet will not only help your body recover from workouts, but will build and repair muscle - helping you achieve your ‘why’.
Can whey protein help with weight gain?
To gain weight, one needs to increase energy intake over energy expenditure. This means eating more calories than you would expend. If you want to increase lean body mass as opposed to fat mass, it is important to increase your protein and carbohydrate intake and not your fat intake.
Kinetica Oatgain is the ideal product for getting additional calories into your diet. It contains of 600kcals per 160g serving. Oat gain contains 80g over carbohydrates while the protein content is 45g per serving. The sugar content is 6.4g, which is just over a teaspoon of sugar.
Although, nutrition plays a key role when it comes to building lean mass, it is important to stimulate the muscle by stressing it, this occurs by performing resistance training that will help you become stronger and fitter.
Aiming for 1.6g – 2.2g of protein per kg of bodyweight will help with building lean muscle. Read more about what are the best supplements for building muscle.
What are the different types of Whey Protein?
Although you’ll often see the term whey protein used in the generic sense, there are in fact a number of different types of whey protein. These are:
- Whey protein concentrate.
- Whey protein isolate.
- Whey protein hydrolysate.
Each of these types of protein is obtained in a slightly different way. Each type also has slightly different properties.
For example, whey concentrate is considered to be the ‘least processed’ type of whey protein, and contains plenty of nutrients. Whey protein isolate is a more refined type of whey protein and as a result, contains lower levels of lactose. Finally, whey protein hydrolysate is a type of ‘predigested’ form of whey protein, which means it is digested very quickly by your body.
Here at Kinetica Sports, we ensure that our whey protein powders include a blend of all three types of whey protein. This ensures that our protein powders contain the best characteristics of each whey protein type.
