If i throw whey protein in my coffee, will the heat mess it up? The container says mix with cold liquids, or favorite beverage . . so whats the call?

well according to the container, if coffee is your favorite beverage then it should be ok. It sounds pretty gross tho. Let us know how it tastes.

actually , and dont quote me on this, I think the heat does somewhat alter the protein. I remember reading a thread on the site about this. Do a search and u will get a lot of information.

tried it and it didn't mix.

yeah, I was gonna say it would probably clump up. As a treat though, add a teaspoon of instant coffee or Postum to vanilla whey and milk (and ice), blend and drink. Tastes like those coffee "chillers" you can buy at Border's or Gloria Jean's, but without the sugar, and fat.

I would say the heat would denature some of the whey. Whether this would affect the effects you get from it, I don't know. It could actually make it more bioavailable, who knows

Anybody ever tried vanilla protein in diet vanilla pepsi

Don't try it. My friend once put a sachet of sugar into a bottle of fizzy drink and the damn thing fizzed up as much as one of those baking soda and vinegar fountains does. And I've reproduced the experiment :)
