most protien powders are derived from "real" foods
whey the protien powder that is most discussed comes from milk.

all foods digest at different speeds
i wouold say 1-1/12 hours for a light meal 2-4 for a heavier

if you can do 30 reps you are going far too light
the optimal rep range depends on your goals
3-6...strength
8-12..muscle
12-15..weight loss
