Scitec Nutrition Protein Delite
We offer you these high-quality protein-rich tasty shakes in many great flavors. Each flavor of Protein Delite contains dried fruit pieces or chocolate bits! Protein Delite’s protein source contributes to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass and also to the maintenance of normal bones1. Protein Delite contains milk proteins, including whey and casein, both so-called complete proteins, because they provide the body with all necessary amino acids, including the 9 amino acids (i.e. Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine), which are considered essential, as the body cannot synthesize them.

Determination of the nutritional efficiency of protein in the diet is in most cases based on estimating the extent to which dietary protein nitrogen is absorbed and retained by the body and is able to balance daily nitrogen losses. Net Protein Utilisation (NPU) is the percentage of ingested nitrogen that is retained in the body, and the Biological Value (BV) gives the percentage of absorbed nitrogen that is retained. Biological Value is the product of NPU and digestibility. Whey protein has good digestibility and amino acid composition, thus its Biological Value is great. Protein Delite has added extra amino acids, Taurine and L-Glutamine, the latter being the most abundant free amino acid in human blood.
