MuscleTech Micellar Whey is, as the name implies, a protein suppement which features one form of protein: Micellar Whey…
Micellar Whey is simply Whey Protein where the individual molecules have been enlarged with the aim of slowing down digestion. Micellar Casein has been around for a while, but it seems MuscleTech is a first-mover when it comes to Micellar Whey. Whether this form of Whey will actually catch on remains to be seen, but we do appreciate the effort!
The Micellar Whey formula contains 6g of Carbohydrates, 1g of which is Sugar. The relatively low carb-load is yet another indication that Micellar Whey is just intended to be a protein supplement, not a mass gainer or anything like that.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
First there was Whey. Then there was Casein. Then there was Micellar Casein…and now Micellar Whey? It’s not really clear how Micellar Whey fits into the protein category as a whole at this time. One would think that, if slow-digestion was the goal, one would just stick with Casein. We’ll update this review upon release.
