Soy and Whey are considered to be two of the sources of protein. People usually weigh in on which is better for them. Soy protein comes from soybeans, which are a type of legume. This comes with a lot of protein, although it will not have a lot of fat. Whey comes from an animal source, which is also high in protein. In terms of taste, Whey usually has a milder taste.

Soy comes with a distinct nutty flavor which people may love or hate depending on their preference. Soy is normally preferred by people who consider themselves to be vegetarians while those who are omnivores are perfectly fine with choosing Whey as their source of protein. Both soy and Whey are considered to be complete proteins.

Both soy protein and whey protein are essential proteins because they contain all the nine types of amino acids that are good for the body. One of the notable differences between soy protein and whey protein is that, soy protein has been so many times researched to have some additional nutritional benefits over whey protein. This means, the concentration of all the nine essential amino acids that can be gotten from soy protein is higher than that of whey protein.

Whey protein has been found out to be the right protein for those who are willing to lose more weight. Another difference is about their source. Whey protein is gotten during milk extraction from the cow. While soy protein is gotten from plant, specifically soybeans. During digestion, whey protein gets digested easily in the body, while digestion of soybeans takes a little time. Soy protein is less expensive compared to whey protein.

Soy and whey proteins are presently the most popular forms of protein, in the realm of fitness health. They have a wide variety of advantages and disadvantages connected with them. First, whey protein is typically better not processed within the body. It contains specific amino acids which help to aid in the muscle recovery before an intense workout; however, there is a downside. Whey protein is very quickly depleted from the body. You must keep replacing it for the body to be able to keep hold of it.

Whey protein can also improve the way your body absorbs calcium, and it can also help to improve immune function. Soy protein comes from soybeans. It is more widely available to people, and it also contains Fido estrogens, which can help improve overall health; however, this protein may lead to a disturbance of the endocrine system. Some research has indicated that soy activates estrogen receptors, which generally help someone going through menopause, but not those who are younger and in need of healthy protein.
