PROTEIN & AMINO-ACID FORM COMPARISON
FORM FUNCTION / VALUE
Free-form Doesn't require digestion; quickly absorbed into the bloodstream; relatively expensive
Hydrolyzed Predigestion speeds entry into digestive system, but often contains longer chains that must be broken down. Whey and lactalbumin are examples.
Branched-Chain During exercise, aids in the formation of alanine from chain glucose, which helps prevent muscle catabolism.
Di- and Tripeptides Two- and three-molecule amino acids that are quickly digested
Plant Foods Natural source of protein, often with fiber. Inexpensive, but incomplete (low in certain essential aminos), slowly digested and absorbed.
Animal Foods Natural source containing all essential amino acids; longer digestion/absorption time, especially with fatty meats.
