One world whey?

I was listening to hi def radio on my ipod last night and I came across a commercial for oneworldwhey.com Their claim to 'fame' is that they do not heat their protein up so they can keep the proteins from unwrapping keeping it quality. I saw a 5lb bag of it for $126? Uh, OUCH?

I am not expert on this, just am aware of the very basics of whey in general. Does anyone have any opinions or fact on their claims? Or just comments in general on them?

They're claiming that their protein does not "Denature" during their processing. I have no reason not to believe them. I doubt they're lying. And this is true. If you heat protein it will "Denature" and the complex, original shape and structure of the protein will fall apart.

But that doesn't fucking matter. You know when protein also denatures? When you cook meat. CLEARLY cooked animal flesh is suitable for putting on muscle and providing the body with nutrients. In fact, cooking meat (which denatures the protein) makes meat easier for our bodies to digest. It's pretty well established that one of the reasons human beings where able to grow our large brains was because we started cooking our food, which made it easier to digest and get nutrients from.

Hell, people pay top dollar for high tech proteins like hydrolyzed whey, hydrolyzed casein, and Branch Chain Amino Acids are MORE digested and denatured than normal protein.

And if you do eat raw, non-denatured, unheated protein it still won't be of any benefit. The acids in your stomach will denature the protein. Even if these companies claims are true, your body will never allow you to reap any benefits that these proteins might have.

The supposed appeal to these raw proteins is the same appeal the misguided "raw food movement" has on people. Just because something is more natural doesn't mean it's better for you. You know what's natural? Live Tigers. Would you try to eat a live tiger? No. That would be bad for your health because the Tiger would whack your head off with its paw and eat your leg flesh.

There's a company called Trueprotein that sells some cheap, high quality stuff. If you can't find an add for them to click on, you might be blind.

Your post is funny! Yes, I know about True Protein. I have ordered protein through TP before. I was just curious about this one world whey stuff. Seems when companies like this come along they always have a gimmick in which to sell their product in order to make it appear better than everyone else. I just never a company advertise like I heard them advertise so I looking to find out where is the BS on it.

Kind of the nature of business. I mean, in a sea of protein drinks, they have to do something to make you post a thread about at IM.

I was thinking the same thing when I posted this here but hey, I did it because among the websites I go to dealing with weightlifting this site ranks on top of the list if I want to get educated about something. although I don't intend to give it a cheap advertisement I know the intelligence of most people on this board smell the BS in it. I did as well but I wanted the understanding of the specifics of the BS in it.

Trueprotein has cold filtered isolate for less than 10$ a pound. I wouldn't say that Trueprotein offers cheap high quality supplements though.

I would say they offer inexpensive high quality supplements.

"Misguided Raw Food Movement???" Unfortunately, the misinformed - the misguided are mercilessly doomed / imprisoned in their own square cubed paradigm of ignorance. The real tragedy lie in the fact that they have an unending herd of followers that support the walls. Western education are it's foundation.

Sarcasm.. although funny ... often disguises lack of knowledge.

All Food - All Things - Are Energy...... especially things that we humans consume. When consuming proper foods.... one can not escape the fact that he is eating either life or death. Your cells were perfectly designed to receive the nourishment of the "Ka" - the energy of that to which you're consuming. Food cooked at high temperatures kill the "Ka" - I'm sure your well educated mind may have difficulty comprehending the finer points of this fact.

In terms of this protein.... it's over priced. Although it's the best tasting protein I've ever consumed.

I'm allergic to ka, kamplete nutjobs like you Truthbetold. I would like you to tell me more about this 'eating of death' however, as it sounds like the next homeopathic craze to sweep the country and I want to cash in on it.
