Perhaps the most cost-effective method to increase protein in your diet, whey protein concentrate provides the body with the ideal amino acid profile for muscle-building, strength and recovery. Because whey is also fast-digesting, it's well suited as a post-workout nutrition source when your body needs a quick fix of protein. However, because whey protein concentrate is made from milk, it typically contains lactose — the natural sugar found in dairy products. If you're lactose intolerant, your body will likely be unable to metabolize the lactose and show signs of allergies. If whey protein concentrate upsets your stomach, consider spending a little extra on whey protein isolate, which purifies the whey protein more and includes fewer production byproducts.
I’m 75 and in good health & started adding vanilla whey protein to my coffee; drink one with each meal, so end up having total of 3 rounded teaspoons of protein in my coffees every day…….anyway, I prepare my ‘mix’ by putting instant coffee, stevia, & the protein powder in my cup. then I ‘stir’ the dry ingredients together for 100 times…….this breaks everything down to a fine powder….while the hot water is going into my cup on my 1-cup coffee maker (love that thing! lol) I stir the mixture..and, Voila! a perfectly-blended cup of protein-ized coffee!! then I add my organic 1/2 and 1/2…………I see no need to ‘cool the coffee down’…and I think my procedure saves at least a little time…TRY IT YOU’LL LIKE IT!! LOL………I’ve always felt that adding the liquid TO the powder, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND, is the best way to blend it..just my opinion, of course!!
Continued improvements in the efficiency for the production of milk led to a worldwide glut of milk by 2016. Russia and China became self-sufficient and stopped importing milk. Canada has tried to restrict milk production by forcing new farmers/increased capacity to "buy in" at CN$24,000 per cow. Importing milk is prohibited. The European Union theoretically stopped subsidizing dairy farming in 2015. Direct subsidies were replaced by "environmental incentives" which results in the government buying milk when the price falls to €200 per 1,000 litres (220 imp gal; 260 US gal). The United States has a voluntary insurance program that pays farmers depending upon the price of milk and the cost of feed.
