Know the Benefits of Different Protein Sources

Annie Crandall | Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

We often get asked the question, “What is the difference between whey, plant-based, blend and egg protein powders and which is the best for me?”  The best way to answer this question is to break it down into what each protein is and the benefits that assist your body in fueling, energizing and recovering.



Whey is a complete protein made from milk that’s easily digestible. Designer Whey® takes it to the next level with our premium 100% natural whey protein – free of artificial growth hormones and antibiotics. Whey helps the body refuel, repair and recover. Try consuming immediately after a workout when the body is like a sponge and able to soak up all the protein as well as other nutrients found in Designer Whey®.

Whey protein concentrate is possibly the most popular sports supplement today as well as considered the most economical form of whey protein for the body to digest. Whey protein concentrate is rich in both BCAAs and glutamine which make it a critical protein to help build muscle size, muscle definition, kill hunger cravings and aid in recovery.

Whey protein isolate has a higher percentage of protein than whey protein concentrate due to the filtration process which separates the protein from fat, cholesterol and lactose. This process creates purer protein which is highly sought after by athletes who are looking for very quick digestion to begin the recovery process.



The majority of Designer Protein’s plant-based proteins, including our Essential 10®, are a combination of non-GMO pea protein and organic sprouted rice protein. This combination of pea and rice provide the key EAAs not typically found in all plant proteins. It helps convert carbs into energy so they won’t be stored as fat. Plant-based proteins give you the nutrients needed to fight free radicals, support immune health, help keep hunger away and assist digestive health.



Designer Protein’s Totally Egg® is first-to-market in using both egg white and egg yolk protein. It is a rich source of vitamins B1 and B12. It’s packed with BCAAs and EAAs needed for ideal body performance and recovery. Egg protein also contains the phospholipids; phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine, which have been known to help support brain health.



A blend protein powder is a product that contains more than one type of protein in an effort to provide more nutritional value. Blends offer your body fast-acting, easily absorbed proteins along with slow-release proteins that provide fuel for muscle growth all throughout the day and night. Each of Designer Protein’s blends, such as Aria® Protein or Lite Protein®, has an added benefit to help achieve your goals.
