Could someone tell me what designer whey is? Are there other names for it? Thank you. Victoria

Designer whey is a brand name of a whey product.

Whey is a natural dairy protein that is derived from the cheese making process. Most commercial whey supplements are derived from cow’s milk, which is comprised of 6.25% protein: 20% in the form of whey. Whey protein supplements utilize the concentrated protein, eliminating the lactose and milk fat making it a remarkable source of protein.

Whey is a complete protein, meaning it contains all essential amino acids, which are vital to your metabolism, and to making your body function properly for good health. Whey also boasts the highest concentrations of branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) found in nature. Branched chain amino acids are an important source of energy during exercise and play a key role in protein synthesis.

Whey protein, when properly processed has the highest biological value of all proteins. Biological value relates to how much of the protein consumed is actually absorbed, retained and used by your body. More specifically, biological value is the measure used to rate protein quality through nitrogen retention. The higher the quality of protein, the more nitrogen is absorbed and retained by your body.

Wow, thanks so much. It sounds like a "wonder food". I would assume you could buy it in a health food store or a store like GNC? Victoria

I just made a pretty good modification of this because I did not have all of the ingrediants

instead of designer whey, I used 1 packet swiss miss sugar free hot cocoa

no splenda

I did not have half in half so I used ff cool whip, with some milk added to it. No water.

PB and ice as called for and blend.

Delish! :)
