After exercise or before exercise?
Some people say that it is good to drink protein powder before exercise, and some people say that it is good to drink protein powder after exercise, so when is the best time to consume protein powder?
The truth is, there are no particular times of day that require you to drink protein powder, there are just times of day when you need protein. And in these cases, it doesn’t matter whether your protein comes from protein powder or food.
So let’s not worry about when it is better to consume protein powder. It’s important to eat enough protein if you want to gain and/or maintain muscle. Most studies suggest that 0.7–1 gram per pound (1.6–2.2 grams per kg) of lean mass are sufficient.
If you’re still wondering when is the best time to eat protein powder, the suggestion is post-workout. We consume a lot of energy when exercising, and the body’s demand for energy increases. Ingesting protein powder is the most convenient and quick way to replenish energy.
How to solve the agglomeration of protein powder brewing and affect the taste?
The main reason for the caking of protein powder brewing is uneven stirring. The manual shaker shakes the stirring ball in the cup continuously to break up the protein powder and make fuller contact with water to reduce caking. However, when a lot of protein powder is stirred, the problem of agglomeration cannot be solved. You can use an electric shaker, which rotates at high speed to form a strong vortex, and continuously sucks the protein powder into the middle of the vortex and mixes it with water to make a smooth protein shake like milk.
