INSTANTIZED WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE POWDER

  • HIGH PROTEIN EFFICIENCY RATIO
  • EXTREMELY LOW FAT
  • EXTREMELY LOW LACTOSE
  • EXTREMELY LOW CARB

Protein is the building block of muscle cells. When you stress your muscles through serious exercise, it takes protein to rebuild them. So what you want is protein that is highly bio-available for the task.

Most whey proteins you buy on the market are whey protein concentrate (WPC) or are blended with whey protein isolate (WPI). WPC is normally 80-85% protein, while WPI is 90% or above. Be aware that WPC can be as low as 35% protein. So you must read the product label to be sure you are getting a high quality WPC.

Both types of whey protein peak in your system in about 90 minutes. Of the two, concentrate costs less because it is less highly filtered - i.e., it is less work to process it. Many people feel that WPC is a better choice, but because it is less filtered, concentrate retains immunoglobulins which are stripped away when isolate is produced. The presence of immunoglobulins may offer a small health advantage, For people who are lactose-intolerant, it is worth noting that WPC is usually fairly low-lactose, i.e., under 5%. WPI is usually under 3%.

Look for whey protein concentrate created using ultrafiltration - a technique that keeps the protein's peptides completely intact and solubility high while removing unwanted components from the whey. Also look for "instantized" products. They are made for easy blending with a spoon or in a shaker.
