CONCENTRATE OR ISOLATE - WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
Whey is one of the most well-known bases for protein powders, particularly in fitness communities, but how much do you and your team know about it?
Milk is comprised of two proteins: casein and whey. Whereas milk protein powders contain both of these proteins, they are normally separated with casein forming curds and being the principal protein for dairy products such as cheese, and whey being present in the watery component of milk (often the by-product of cheese making).
The whey can then be processed into either two kinds of whey protein powders:
concentrate or isolate.
Whey protein concentrate can typically contain anywhere from 35-80% protein content, but whey protein isolate (WPI) typically contains 93% or more protein content, with its purity making it a superior choice.
NOT ALL WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATES ARE EQUAL
While we have established isolate is the better and cleaner choice, there are still different levels of quality amongst the various whey protein isolates available on the market.
Here at the Healthy Chef, what makes our Pure Native WPI different comes down to our production process.
We go the extra mile and start with the best possible base ingredient: biodynamic milk from grass-fed cows. The dairy farmers supplying the milk are also part of a co-op that follow a strict code of practice treaty for the humane treatment of animals.
Our Pure Native WPI is not a by-product of cheese, meaning it does not have unnecessary chemicals and treatments added. It is created with the end result of a pure whey protein in mind, which is why it undergoes a cold filtration process followed by a single pasteurisation process.
What really sets our Pure Native WPI apart is that we add lactase to our protein powder. Lactase is a digestive enzyme that works to break down lactose content, which is what can cause the bloating and digestive issues you may have heard can happen or have experienced yourself after consuming whey protein. This makes the end product 99.8% lactose-free.
