I am Lactose intolerant can I consume GARGANTUA?
Since GARGANTUA has a protein blend consisting of Whey protein concentrates we suggest you to avoid it.
If you face intolerance or insensitivity to lactose, which is the natural sugar found in milk products, you should definitely opt for a Whey protein isolate which contains very little or no lactose.
What is the difference between a whey protein and a weight gainer?
Whey protein products and weight gainers are two completely different categories of products.
Whey Protein- Whey is a milk protein extract. The water which remains after cheese making process is known as sweet dairy whey. Whey protein has all 22 amino acids & all 8 essential amino acids. Whey is highly anabolic and is fast acting protein of milk. It is best consumed post workout and first thing in the morning for muscle recovery and muscle protein synthesis. It has very low amount of Lactose and fat with protein percentage 80% and above (WPI). Hence, It is low in Calories, Carbohydrates and Fat.
Weight Gainer-Are range of products which help meet or exceed the daily caloric requirement. Usually composed of both high and low glycemic Carbohydrates and protein, whey protein and other vitamins and minerals. Weight gainer formulas are designed to promote muscle development, as well as increase the muscle’s recovery process
Hence depending on the goal the product will be decided. If the target is Weight gain then Mass gainer will be the priority product whereas, if the body weight is normal and the goal is muscle building, fat loss or recovery Whey protein will be the priority product.
However, for weight gain the best solution is stack of a Gainer + Whey Protein.
How do I know which Gainer should I consume?
