    Whey Protein Peptides in the blood?

    Whey protein is a fast digesting protein. Esp when consumed alone or with carbs, esp fast acting carbs. My question is, can whey protein help rapidly transport whey peptides into the bloodstream before enough stomach acids degrade them?

    Good question. Last link explains it good. Seems like whey peptides are decomposed into single amino acids and only then they are small enough to get into the bloodstream.
