#19: How is Protein Powder Made?

On Episode 19 of the Musashi R&D Sessions Podcast, Ross and Dhiren provide a step-by-step guide to the week’s training and sports nutrition topic – How is protein powder made? The guys cover the difference between whey protein concentrate and isolate, different sources of protein, and why it matters where the milk comes from. We also outline to production process for whey protein from cow to tub, touching on the elements of spreading whey and whey, flavouring, and testing.

In sports news, the guys announce the early restart of the next NBA season, Argentina defeating the All Blacks for the first time in history, and Australian Andrew Maloney being robbed of the boxing world title. We also react to the gossip about Cameron Smith’s feud with Cooper Cronk, and Aussie tennis star Bernard Tomic appearing on someone’s OnlyFans.

This episode we finish with a pair of listener questions on compensating for missing a meal after exercise, and how soon after beginning to work out do you see and feel results. The guys are able to guess the origins of a mystery famous athlete quote pitched by Hal the Intern, and Dhiren applies the philosophy of Miyamoto Musashi to the topic using the quote:

“Polish your wisdom: learn public justice, distinguish between good and evil, study the ways of different arts one by one.”
