    I don't see any measurements of lean mass before and after chronic training.

    This isnít a study, itís a press release. The research was sponsored by a manufacturer of ďmycoproteinĒ supplements and tested only their proprietary blend. And they didnít look at any chronic results. Itís not published or peer-reviewed, was presented at a meeting, probably in a panel or poster. Long way to go before we would consider this ďproven.Ē

    My guess is if you want to pay extra $$ for fungal protein, itís probably not inferior to whey, and might even be better for building muscles. Try it out and let us know!

    I'm pretty sure that the difference between protein powders in terms of their impact on lean mass and strength is marginal. Training has the biggest impact and the rest of it need not be complicated IMO

    Some Info on Mycoprotiein

    It looks inferior to beef and egg to me, it's a lot lower on leucine. I'd rather eat a real burger and drink some whey than have some fungus.

    The question is whether it is a better source than whey, not whether it could replace a burger.

    The numbers in their chart donít make sense to me (1g of leucine per 100g protein is very low for any of these sources), but if mycoprotein is superior to whey and makes a tasty shake, they may be onto something. I doubt it, but more will probably be revealed, if they can maintain their marketing momentum.

    It also has 11 g protein per 100 g, which means that if you were to double the serving and eat 200 g, you would get 22 g protein with 11 g of leucine, which is not marginal.

    Is there some advantage to varying protein powders from different sources. I slip in a vegan powder among whey and casen, from time to time. Is variety presumptively healthier?

    Depends on the micronutrient or amino acid profiles. In general, I always recommend eating a variety of food sources to obtain a variety of nutrients.
