What's the difference between UMP and Muscle Provider Proteins?

Here's a quick rundown on those questions as well as the main differences between UMP and Muscle Provider by Beverly International. 


Which is better UMP vs Muscle Provider?

While that's a loaded question, the simple answer is - What's your goal? Ultimate Muscle Protein is an anytime protein shake consisting of more than 90% milk protein isolate.  UMP contains sustained-release casein plus fast acting whey in the same 80:20 ration found naturally in milk.  The best times to use UMP are before and/or after lifting weights, first thing in the morning, before bed, and any other time of day to increase your daily protein intake.
Muscle Provider is a rapidly absorbed, fast acting whey protein.  The primary ingredients are Whey Protein Hydrolysate and Whey Protein Isolate.  Muscle Provider is best used immediately before or after workouts.

What is the difference between a whey protein and a whey/casein blend?

Again, it comes down to your particular needs and what you're wanting out of a protein powder. Adding a protein supplement/powder to your health and fitness routine can help you maximize your gains. Whether you want to show off your muscles at the beach or just replace your junk-food snacks with a healthier alternative, either whey or casein protein may be a good option.

"In order to promote muscle growth, you should feed your muscles more protein than they need."

Between the two main types, whey and casein, whey is the "faster" protein supplement because its amino acids are absorbed quickly by your body. A whey protein is often taken immediately after a workout or even as you finish your workout to allow amino acid uptake at a critical timing for your muscle recovery and building. Your body can break it down and absorb it in roughly 20 minutes. So your body can more quickly rebuild and grow the muscle that was broken down during your workout.

While casein is the "slower" supplement — since it’s digested more slowly — it can be taken at any time of day, adding to your total protein intake for the day. Just like whey protein, casein protein provides all the essential amino acids your body needs. As opposed to whey, casein can be thought of as a "time-release" protein since it’s digested more slowly. After you consume casein, your body’s absorption of amino acids and creation or synthesis of proteins will peak after roughly 3 to 4 hours.

Both proteins can help your muscles grow. That’s because they re-form fatigued muscles after exercise by providing crucial amino acids needed to rebuild the muscle fibers. 

Regardless of which type you choose, the most important factor is how much total protein you eat throughout the day.

Which protein powder is best for cooking?

While the other questions were not as easily answered...the best protein powder for cooking is hands down - Beverly Ultimate Muscle Protein or UMP as BevNuts like to call it. We have made everything from pancakes to protein parfaits, brownies to banana nut muffins and everything in between. UMP has a thickness and consistency which makes it perfect for cooking or using in recipes.
