|Optimum Nutrition 100% Any Whey Protein|
 Specific Use Instructions
To improve the overall nutrient profile of your favorite foods or simply increase your total daily protein consumption, slowly add one level scoop (included) of 100% Any Whey Protein to any of the food items listed. This product is instantized so it will easily mix with milk, water, juice, or any other liquid. For best results with semisolid food items (puddings, cottage cheese, batters, yogurts, etc.), slowly add one serving of the 100% Any Whey Protein to the food item under gentle agitation with a spoon. When adding to heated items like soups, hot cereals, gravies, and sauces it is generally better to stir this product in at the end of the cooking cycle. Doing so will minimize denaturing of the proteins and improve the consistency of the end result. Baking Tips: Protein has a tendency to toughen the texture of baked goods, so you may need to adjust your recipe(s) to accommodate the inclusion of this product.
Here are some general suggestions:
- Don't over mixadd this product to the other dry ingredients in your recipe before blending it with wet ingredients. Once combined, mix batter just long enough to ensure that the dry ingredients have been moistened by the wet ingredients.
- Replace all-purpose flour with equal amounts of pastry flour. For a more healthful twist, try using whole-wheat pastry flour.
- Add about 10% more vegetable oil, butter, or margarine to the recipe. These fats tenderize the batter and will help to counteract any toughness or chewiness that adding extra protein to the recipe may cause.
- Start off with 1 scoop of protein and add more (if desired) until you reach the point where you feel as though the quality of the recipe is compromised.
Note: The high protein content of this product may promote more rapid browning in baked goods. Please monitor last few minutes of baking time for browning and adjust time as needed.
