Whey Protein Concentrate vs. Whey Protein Isolate, Don't go the wrong Whey!
Have you ever stood before the great wall of protein powders/bars at the store and thought to yourself “what the F is going on here!?”
Allow us to help. When it comes to whey protein, you have two common forms; whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate. You want to avoid whey protein concentrate and get whey protein isolate whenever possible.
Whey protein concentrate at BEST can be 80% protein, but in most cases, it will be anywhere between 50% and 80% protein. Less protein means more lactose, the carbohydrates found in milk. Not only does this mean more carbs, but for some, it can mean more stomach discomfort. Why do some companies use this in their products? Because it’s considerably cheaper than whey protein isolate.
Whey protein isolate, on the other hand, is 90% or greater protein content! This means that the money you are spending is delivering more protein, fewer carbs, and potentially less stomach discomfort. Yes, it may be more expensive, but for good reason.
So, when shopping for protein powders, bars, or any other “high protein snack” check the label to see if that product is the right Whey to go.
