What is Whey Protein?
The ultimate source of protein, whey protein is the highest quality form of this nutritional essential you’ll find anywhere. It doesn’t occur naturally in food, but you can consume it in the form of powders, bars and drinks.
In fact, whey protein is the by-product of cow’s milk being turned into cheese. And there are two forms of it – concentrate and whey protein isolate. The former is low fat, and usually consists of around 75% pure protein. The isolate version is typically around 90% pure protein, and represents whey in its purest form, having been processed to remove fat and lactose.
If you are buying whey protein supplements, you can choose from concentrate, isolate or blends, which are generally the most popular of these powders. They combine the isolate and concentrate to form a high quality, affordable product.
This superior from of protein gives the body the perfect amino acid profile for muscle building, strength and recovery. It’s also known to boost the immune system, and boost metabolic rate.
While bodybuilders, strength trainers and endurance athletes will all benefit from these supplements, those who are new to weight or strength training, vegetarians, team sports players and those on weight loss programmes can also benefit from taking whey protein.
