Hey everyone, okay I've seen posts about this before and I tried searching it, but I'm not very good with the search engine... I wanted to know if cooking protein powder would take away some of the nutrients, I've heard several different opinions, but I want to know if anyone really knows?

From what I've gathered, most of the protein is still there, you lose very little.

I've heard that it coagulates and turns to a brick. I haven't tried it because of that story. Any truth behind it?

Any idea how much a little is?

I've heard of people cooking it and not having that problem, if thats what your scared of, try it with a little, a little loss of protein won't hurt...but I would like to know if its true that you lose some protein or not..hmm

I've cooked with whey in brownies or homemade protein bars. I don't see a problem cooking with whey powder.

But do you know if it loses any protein by heating it up like that?

i believe it does lose a little, not much to worry about.

I had that happen. It was some years ago, and I don't remember the brand. Today's brands may be better at handling the heat. But back then I added it to my oatmeal and nuked it. I had a block of cement.

Do you know of any articles that may talk about this? And how much would you concider a little? Lets say I put one scoop of nitrean, how much grams would I lose? any clue?

Usually tastes pretty awful. But don't worry about protein loss.
