Protein mix with warm milk or water... does it lead to less absorption?

    It's difficult to have my protein mix not precipitate into globules and stick to the side of my glass... leading to protein loss. So I microwaved my milk or water to raise the saturation amount so the entire protein mix can dissolve. I assume this is denaturing a lot of the protein, but since the individual amino acids are all good... will this significantly affect the amount absorbed?

    Cold milk with vigorous stirring works fine for me.

    I use ON extreme milk chocolate and no matter how much stirring I do, it'll aggregate and stick to the sides of the glass or cup. :( If I microwave water for about 30 seconds and add it, it'll dissolve completely and taste like hot chocolate. :coold:

    The only success I have ever had mixing protein is either shaking or blending. Hot/warm water makes it even chunkier for me, when stirring anyway.

    Not to mention shaking is SO much easier than stirring.

    You don't need a blender bottle, I got some cheap rubbermaid container that was two bucks, it works fine and I get no chunks at all.

    I use a fork, that way it breaks up the little chunks better and I can scrape the sides of the glass.

    meh, raising the solubility of the solvent is easier. :hs:

    I think putting powder and liquid into a bottle and shaking is way easier than filling glass with milk, placing said glass into microwave, warming, then pour in powder and stir for 30 seconds.

    No need to use so much science, it's just whey. :o

    :fawk: Raising the solubility of the water makes the whey dissolve in seconds. Takes about 4 seconds for it to dissolve completely. No need to shake, no product loss and no need for cleaning other than the spoon and glass. :noes:

    Get a shaker or use a blender.

    Just shell out the cash for one good shaker now, and wait around for a good sale and then purchase like 5 of them (what I did).
