Dairy products and ingredients—such as U.S. whey and milk proteins—are a delicious way to enjoy the wonderful nutrition naturally found in cow’s milk.
While protein is naturally found in a variety of animal and plant foods, there is a wide variance in protein quality. U.S. dairy proteins stand out as a high quality, complete source of protein containing all the essential amino acids. Whey protein is also the leading source of the amino acid leucine, which is important for healthy aging by playing a central role in stimulating muscle protein synthesis.
Dairy proteins’ unique ability to help improve body composition during weight loss, increase muscle mass when combined with resistance training and aid in muscle recovery after endurance exercise is well-established. People often envision these as being reserved for young, competitive athletes, but new research has shown dairy proteins have great benefits for women—without adding the bulk—as well as older individuals.
