    I mixed my vanilla whey w/coffee the other day, it was pretty :yum:
    Dunno if coffee is bad for gains tho...but it was a lot better than mixing it w/water!

    A lot of people here add whey to coffee or instant coffee to whey.

    Thermo effects of coffee + protein = FTW

    I don't know if whey is very heat tolerate, meaning its bioavailability does not decrease significantly when exposed to temperatures hot coffee has. I used to do it with cold coffee. Using hot coffee might be a bit of a waste.

    How does that work anyways? I'm learning a little about proteins in bio. The peptide bonds all get digested anyways in the stomach leading to free aminos being transported into the blood, right? So would protein denaturization even effect how good the protein is for you?

    Please educate :)

    That's why we don't usually take enzymes ORALLY, because they get destroyed anyway.

    Werd, I was more interested in knowing if denaturing proteins really does anything to their value to eat. It doesn't seem to me like it would but I'm a total idiot and new to this stuff even though I find it so interesting

    Well, our body just breaks the peptidic bonds and we absorb AA. Some processing can actually change the protein's bioavailability so I think we can say that protein denaturation might help since most protein are more bioavailable when cooked.
