Whey Concentrate vs Whey Isolate? This is what you need to know!

Whey Protein Concentrate
Whey Protein Isolate?
Enzymes are used to curdle cow's milk, separating the solid curds and leaving behind liquid whey. This liquid is then pasteurized and dried to make whey powder. That whey powder is then used to make a few products, two of which are commonly found in protein supplements:
  • Whey Concentrate - this is what is commonly used in protein shakes and most often what is behind anything labeled as 'whey protein powder'.
  • Whey Isolate - the whey is processed to reduce the lactose and fat content, essentially isolating the protein.
So the question is, when should you choose which one?

Whey Isolate, by its very name, is more processed. The proteins have been isolated, leaving you with a higher protein content per gram, trace amounts of lactose, and nearly no fats. For the athlete looking to measure their nutrient intake with precision, or control their nutrient timing, whey isolate is the way to go. It is seen to be the purest, most elite version of protein supplementation and for anybody with lactose sensitivity, it's a perfect option! It's low carb, low cal, and screams CLEAN PROTEIN!

Whey concentrate on the other hand, is much less processed and contains the healthy fats that your body needs - if you don't mind the few extra calories as compared to the Isolate. Because it is less processed, it also comes at a lower price, and if you're not looking for a Whey Isolate for any specific reason, the Whey Concentrate will do an excellent job at packing a protein punch, without the extra cost.
Despite its low fat and sugar content, Nutratech's Isowhey is exceptionally tasty. Isowhey comes in three great flavors, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry, and you can choose between 1kg tubs and 2.27kg tubs.
