INSTANTIZED WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE POWDER

  • VERY HIGH PROTEIN EFFICIENCY RATIO
  • BEST PROTEIN TO USE IMMEDIATELY AFTER WORKOUTS
  • 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.

Pure whey protein isolate (WPI) has an extremely high bio-availabilty and is extemely low fat - about 1% - and low lactose - under 3%. Most whey proteins you buy in the store are blended with whey protein concentrate (WPC). WPC can contain anywhere from 30% to 85% bio-available protein, may have up to 5% fat and also has more lactose than WPI. Not surprisingly, concentrate is cheaper. Both types of whey protein peak in your system in about 90 minutes, but isolate is absorbed more quickly. That, plus it's higher protein value, makes it superior as part of an effective post-workout drink.

Look for whey protein isolate created using microfiltration - 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.
