Why Native Whey Protein Isolate is better than Protein Concentrate

Article title image

When you walk into a supermarket or health food store, you are confronted by rows of products and powders promising weight loss or lean toned muscle. It can get a bit confusing picking the best one for your needs, as well as understanding how it’s prepared and the ingredients used to make it. There are some key factors to consider when deciding on the right protein supplement for you.

Protein concentrate is derived from the by-products of cheese making. Pure Native Whey Protein Isolate ( WPI ) is NOT, so it’s free from ingredients that tend to disrupt digestive health and interfere with protein absorption such as milk solids, casein, milk powder, fats, bacteria, ferments/enzyme and rennet.

Healthy Chef Pure Native WPI is ultra filtered directly from pasture-raised, ( grass fed ) hormone-free raw milk that has only had one single pasteurisation process as required by law – All other processing methods are done at cold temperature to preserve the native character of the protein ( defined as un-denatured ). This allows for a clean and pure source of protein that tastes purely delicious and is quickly absorbed into the body. Healthy Chef Pure Native WPI is also low in fat, low in carbohydrates, high in protein and free of soy protein, sugar and gluten and provides a pure, bio-available source of protein that does not cause bloating or gastro-intestinal distress.

Healthy Chef Pure Native WPI is the purest, undiluted protein source that is produced in a manner that aligns with our philosophy at the healthy chef – PURITY, SIMPLICITY, NATURAL and DELICIOUS.
