    Is there a typical amino acid profile for whey protein?

    I noticed most whey proteins don't list the amino acid profile anymore. Anyways, I found this:
    Amino Acid Profile:
    L-Alanine 1068mg
    L-Arginine 601mg
    L-Aspartic Acid 2574mg
    L-Cystine 314mg
    L-Glycine 482mg
    L-Glutamic Acid 3815mg
    L-Histidine* 493mg
    L-Isoleucine (BCAA)* 1044mg
    L-Leucine (BCAA)* 2745mg
    L-Lysine* 2133mg
    L-Methionine* 848mg
    L-Phenylalanine 848mg
    L-Proline 1047mg
    L-Serine 1111mg
    L-Threonine 1226mg
    L-Tryptophan 627mg
    L-Tyrosine 822mg
    L-Valine (BCAA) 1070mg

    This was for SciFit's Econo Whey. After a quick search this was the only one I could find that still gave an amino acid profile.

    After looking at the BCAA's in these two, it would appear to me that it would be just as beneficial and more cost effective to drink one of these as opposed to Xtend or another BCAA product. Thats what Ive been looking for. I think Im going to just stick with whey preworkout.

    You're right. But generally the BCAAs found in whey are peptide-bonded, while a stand-alone in a BCAA product they are free-form aminos. Some say that free-form aminos "work better" and "faster" when you need them (pre/post workout). Both are important to take, but at different times.

    Don't forget "during workout", which is considered the optimal time to take the free-form BCAA's

    I recommend Bulk Leucine powder, ICE, Vendetta, or Xtend.
