Study reaffirms whey's role in developing muscle
A study sponsored by the dairy producer-created Dairy Research Institute (DRI) concludes that whey protein is more effective than soy protein in developing lean muscle.
The study is one of several that help identify the connection between dairy proteins and lean muscle mass.
Research findings support the value of resistance training and whey protein supplements to build lean muscle in young men and women. Whey protein is a high-quality dairy protein that plays a significant role in muscle maintenance and repair.
The study's results were presented at the recent American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) annual meeting.
DRI is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy® and was created to strengthen the dairy industry's access to and investment in the technical research required to drive innovation and demand for dairy products and ingredients.
