Q&A: Dr. Blake Rasmussen on Protein Blends

ACSM and DuPont Nutrition & Health recently hosted a webinar presented by Dr. Blake Rasmussen entitled "Blending proteins to build muscle: What does the research tell us?"

Blends of dairy and soy protein are commonly used in sports nutrition products. These proteins vary in amino acid composition and digestibility rates; thus, combinations of soy and dairy proteins may have advantages for muscle recovery.

The webinar highlighted recent research evaluating the effects of consuming a soy-dairy protein blend versus single source proteins on muscle protein synthesis. To watch a free recorded version of the webinar, click here. The webinar is also available for two CECs via ACSMceOnline.
