  • Protein powder in coffee?

    Can you mix whey protein concentrate into coffee or hot bevvys?

    I cool down my coffee and add my whey isolate. No problems for me. Not sure if that helps.

      Yeah I could do that, I have natural so want to try something without having to blend or make a smoothy.

        I dissolve 1 scoop of whey in cold water then add hot coffee. For the size of my mug 1 scoop is all I can add. If you put milk in your coffee you can dissolve the whey in that instead of water, that's how I make cocoa for my son.

          That sounds like a good idea, I'm just wondering if it can stand hot temperatures?

            Are you concerned that the nutritional profile will be affected by heat? From what I read the temperature of a drinkable hot beverage won't change it, though boiling it might.

              Yeah or if it will make it go off or something

                Nah, it's fine.
                You could also pour your coffee into a blender then throw the whey into it and blitz it for a few seconds.
                Doesn't get all clumpy and comes out nice and frothy.

                  Whey denatures at 161F (72C) well below boiling. Hot coffee typically ranges from 160F - 185F. I believe you will render your whey fairly worthless by adding to hot coffee.

                    When you say "denature" what do you mean ? broken down by heat into peptides ? it would make it even more digestible. Remember that what enters your bloodstream (hopefully!) is amino acids, after complete breaking of the protein complex.

                      Heating (denaturing) of whey proteins causes folding of the proteins which can render them less digestible. One benefit of whey is it's rapid digestibility which can be lost with protein folding, or denaturing. Many whey users specifically look for undenatured whey, like milk drinkers seek out unpasteurized milk. If undenatured whey is important to the individual, then I'm only saying that the undenatured benefit can be lost when added to a hot beverage. If undenatured whey is not important to the individual, then it doesn't matter.

                        So, basically if no issue with dairy or digesting it then there's no issue heating it?

                          That's not exactly what I meant. The use of "undenatured" whey is important to some users, regardless of their tolerance of dairy. Whether undenatured whey is more beneficial or not is another topic; but, what I meant was, IF undenatured whey is what you want, then hot coffee will destroy that feature.

                            I know what ya mean but still am confused as to what the difference is between undenatured and non undenatured

                              I don't like the terms but they are common terms in the whey-world. Think of undenatured as "raw" and denatured as "cooked". Beyond those differences, there are different opinions whether raw, undenatured whey is more beneficial than cooked denatured whey. Some allege that denatured (cooked) whey is hazardous. I don't have a position on that, but I use raw undenatured nevertheless.
