Whey Protein

Whey protein comes in various forms, such as concentrate, isolate and hydrolysate.

Whey Concentrate

Whey concentrate is made by filtering whole milk protein, this keeps around 75% of the protein unspoiled and attempts to remove many of the non-protein nutrients. Whey concentrate is probably the most popular supplement on the market as it is cost effective, has low lactose levels, can be low in fat and carbs, it has high protein levels per serving, reduces stress hormones and strengthens your immune system. Therefore it helps with both recovery and growth and repair of the muscle.

Whey Protein Isolate

Whey protein is purer than whey protein concentrate because it has a longer filtration process. Around 90% of whey protein isolate is actual protein, it is highly absorbable, and it contains lower amounts of carbs and fats and has very low levels of lactose.

Hydrolysate

Hydrolysates have been partially broken down into smaller proteins which allows for quicker absorption.
