Why is whey protein the best protein for those interested in losing weight because:
It helps the body produce insulin without directly increasing blood sugar. It is high in branched chain amino acids (especially leucine, isoleucine and valine). Leucine in particular helps maintain muscles and preserve lean body mass for fat burning. It improves satiety and plays a role in appetite suppression via the glycomacropeptide component. It is one of the few proteins that dissolves in water and stomach acid to give better absorption of amino acids and promotion of energy. It has the highest biological value (BV) compared to other proteins. Whey derived ACE-inhibitory activity may contribute to the anti-obesity effect.
