Beef Protein Isolate (or Beef Protein Hydrolysate) for bodybuilding
Beef Protein Isolate powder is the supplement form of beef protein. Beef protein powder is a relatively new protein supplement to help bodybuilders build quality muscle. MuscleMeds Carnivor was the first of such products. We have seen whey, casein, soy, egg, milk and even rice and pea protein powders, but beef protein isolate powder is also becoming more popular.
Beef protein powder is fast digesting similar to whey protein, and is an excellent source of essential amino acids and creatine. It is also much more concentrated than steak or whey protein.
Carnivor Beef Protein Isolate by MuscleMeds and Primal Elite by Dymatize are two best selling products in this category.
It is made from beef by taking out the fat and cholesterol. The process starts by taking USDA grade beef, heating it up to hydrolyze the protein (this is why it is also known as beef protein hydrolysate). It is then filtered to take out the cholesterol and the fat. Next, all the water is evaporated and the concentrated protein left over is close to 99% pure. Then it is dried, leaving powdered beef protein isolate. The hydrolyzing process breaks the protein down into "predigested" fragments, which makes beef protein isolate a fast digesting protein.
The best times to take beef protein would be in the morning, before and after your workout, and even between meals.
