What is whey isolate?

Whey isolate (or "Whey Protein Isolate" - WPI) is a dietary supplement with a protein content of more than 80%. Whey isolate can be considered essentially lactose free, is low in fats, carbohydrates and cholesterol free. Whey isolate is therefore a high quality protein with a higher level of purity than any other whey to allow you to maximise recovery as well as the development of muscle mass. It is a fast-assimilating protein that should be used primarily when you wake up, for snacking and after a workout to provide the body with amino acids and quality proteins for maximum muscle regeneration. Furthermore, it is a protein source with a high body absorption rate and contain a high level of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs): overall great for fuelling working muscles!

Whey Isolate VS Whey Concentrate: what is the difference?

Whey isolate is the level above Whey Concentrate in terms of quality. The filtration process of Isolate is much more thorough than that of Concentrate. The isolation process essentially separates the protein, almost fully from the whey component, resulting in a purer whey with a content of 90 or even 95% protein. This form of whey is therefore ultra-pure and is very popular amongst fitness enthusiasts since it greatly improves recovery time. With very low fats and carbohydrates, it will allow you to achieve the dry and carved physique that you have always dreamed of.

Which type of whey should I choose?

When you are choosing a whey product, there are a few factors to keep in mind: your goals, budget and if you have any allergies.

For people who are dieting and wanting to shed some extra kilos, whey protein can be an ideal source of nourishment between real food meals because it helps keep blood sugar levels balanced- which means a people are less prone to snacking.

Whey protein is super important for bodybuilders as their high level of working out means that protein levels are reduced quickly. By consuming a high quality whey protein, such as Isolate, the protein levels will raise again quickly and help muscles recover faster.

The basic things to keep in mind are these: if you already eat a balanced diet and are simply looking for a protein to supplement your diet, you will be totally fine with a concentrate. The fat, cholesterol and carbohydrates are minimal (they still exist, but very minimally) and concentrate also contains some other healthy milk ingredients like alpha lactoglobulins and lactoferrins. In terms of budget, its also cheaper (selling for about 25-35% less than isolate.)

On the other hand, if you are on a very strict diet, preparing for a bodybuilding or figure show or just trying to push your body to the absolute limit, whey protein isolate is they way to go.
