Whey protein is milk-derived and extremely bio-available, fast-acting, and economical, and it has a lot of qualities that make it better than other protein sources, particularly for the athlete. This kind of protein is top of the line as far as quality goes. Protein digestibility corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) is a new system for determining protein quality and is used to establish percent daily value for this nutrient on food labels. The maximum PDCAAS is 1.00, and whey protein has a PDCAAS of 0.99-1.00.
