Wheat Protein Hydrolyzate


Wheat protein hydrolyzate has been found to absorb more rapidly than free form amino acids and intact proteins (74), which can lead to a greater delivery to muscles and a greater post exercise muscle protein synthesis after exercise (74). It has been shown that wheat protein hydrolyzate can increase insulin response dramatically and is ideal for recovery post exercise (75).
