In brief: Bioavailability
Whey protein (especially the hydrosylate and isolate processed variants) contain abundant amounts of branched chain Amino Acids in proportions compatible with the human body's needs.
These serve as potent stimulators of protein synthesis and tend to be more bioavailable than traditional sources of protein (beans, legumes, etc. This is one of the reasons they're utilized by nutrition enthusiasts.
