The Versatility of Actinase Protein Complex The ingredients
list found on the back or side panel of every commercially available food
product - with few exceptions - serves as the consumers best starting point
for understanding the real contents of each product. It discloses the
ingredients that make up the product Carey Price
, sorted in order from most abundant to least abundant. What
it does not show is the actual quantity of each ingredient. As such, more people
than ever before are reading the Nutrition Facts panel on product labels to
truly understand what is in their food[i]. However, where one problem has been
solved, another has emerged. While it is beneficial for people to know that
their food contains a specific amount of nutrients andor vitamins, there are
variations within those elements that are not captured by a typical food label.
This is illustrated clearly when examining protein.Many consumers are well aware
of the importance of protein in daily diet. Protein constitutes the very
building blocks that sustain life, from digestion through to muscle
maintenance[ii]. However, eating the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of 50 grams
of protein may not be as healthy as it should be, due to the differences in
protein sources and protein qualities. The variation of protein used in products
is almost as wide as the variation of products themselves. Manufacturers may use
whey, soy, caseinate and other protein types to fortify their products with
protein. And within each of these protein types are further refinements called such as whey concentrate, whey isolate, whey hydrolysate,
and so on. Though the specific type and grade of protein used in a product is
not captured on the Nutrition Facts or Supplement Facts panel of a product, it
is an important distinction.The type and grade of protein determines how well
the body will digest and assimilate it. Certain proteins such as whey isolate
are readily digested after physical activities. Other proteins such as
caseinates are ideal for sustained energy and anti-catabolism, and therefore
best taken when there will be a long lapse before the next meal (catabolism is
the state in which the body breaks down muscle tissue for energy).One special
grade of proteins - hydrolyzed proteins - is used in a very small percentage of
products because of its high cost to manufacture. It is most often found in
infant formula because it is very gentle on the stomach; it is easy to digest
and assimilate. Hydrolyzed proteins are derived from complete proteins
oftentimes through an enzymatic process of breaking down the protein into
smaller constituents called peptides. The process divides the long protein
molecules into shorter molecules called peptides. Generally, the smaller the
peptide (measured in Daltons) Shea Weber
, the easier the protein is to digest and absorb. Hydrolyzed
proteins also owe their popularity to the fact that, as compared to standard
proteins, they are less susceptible to denaturing (a process by which the
proteins are broken into structures that the body cannot easily digest).Since
hydrolyzed protein is an excellent, natural formula of protein, it stands to
reason that consumers would continually look for products using it. However,
this is where the challenge occurs. The Nutrition Facts panel on product labels
does not reveal the grade or even the type of protein used. To find this
information, the consumer needs to turn back to the ingredient list. The FDA
requires all food products to disclose the source of all proteins (eg. whey,
soy, egg), but not the grade (eg. concentrate, isolate, hydrolysate). Since all
proteins are not the same, manufacturers employ various methods for
incorporating them into products. Proteins such as caseinate and soy are
alkaline-based and can only be used with  flavors such as chocolate
and vanilla. Another drawback to casienates and soy is their high viscosity
(thickness). This limits the amount of caseinate or soy that can be used in a
beverage. Whey is an acid-based protein and is less viscous. Whey can be used
with fruity flavors because of its compatibility with acidulants such as citric
acid and malic acid. A challenge with all of these proteins is their heat
instability ?when they are heated, the proteins denature (break apart).
Denatured proteins are difficult to digest and difficult to metabolize. Most
proteins on the market fall into this category.However, an innovative hydrolyzed
protein blend called Actinase could be changing all of this for the better.
Because of its molecular structure, Actinase is very dense. Forty grams of
Actinase can be dispersed in less than three fluid ounces of water Montreal Canadiens
, with a viscosity no thicker than tomato juice. Any other
protein at this concentration would become a sold mass. In other words, Actinase
allows manufacturers to add more protein to their product without adding the
thickness (or, viscosity) normally associated with protein fortification.
Actinase is also very heat stable, so it has many applications that transcend
the obvious sports drink market.Yet Actinases appeal goes beyond its
heat-resistance and low viscosity. It is all natural, hypoallergenic, both acid
and alkaline stable, and complete (i.e. Actinase contains all essential amino
acids). Through a natural physiological mechanism called thermogenesis, Actinase
also stimulates the bodys metabolism and caloric burn rate. This is very
good news for individuals on a weigh-loss or weight-maintenance program, since
an increased caloric burn rate reduces the intensity and frequency of
fat-storing insulin surges. It is also good news for consumers who want to
ingest a good source of protein, but not necessarily taste it, since Actinase
has a neutral taste and aroma.Only a few years ago, learning about protein was
confined to simply reading a food label to ensure that the Recommended Daily
Intake was being met. Today, however, the subject has become more comple .
