Whey protein is the dairy
source of protein, and is made from milk curd. Whey is widely
regarded as the best type of protein a bodybuilder can use. It is
very high in BCAA's and is known for high levels of nitrogen
retention. It has a high BV, and an excellent amino acid
composition (which means the body can utilize this type of protein
very well for muscle gaining purposes).
Whey hydrolized protein is
protein which has been hydrolized and has a modified protein
structure. This new protein has little biological activity. The
process of hydrolysis breaks apart peptide bonds. Amino acids of
whey proteins from the hydrolized whey protein still exists. These
smaller amino acid chains can be very useful for a
This special process
revolved around the positive and negative charges or ion properties
of whey protein. It featured the use of a resin to isolate the
protein material from the whey. This is followed by ultrafiltration
methods to furthur concentrate the protein. This contains 90%
protein, and less than 1% lactose. True ion exchange whey protein
is clear in a solution.
This type of protein
constains filtering membranes with microscopic holes.
This type of protein is
comprised of 80% protein and a remaining 20% consisting of
moisture, lactose, minerals and fat. They contain more biologically
active proteins than whey protein isolates. Whey protein
concentrates are very good for a bodybuilder in terms of muscle
growth and recovery qualities.
Whey Protein Isolate
This type of protein is
comprised of 90% protein and a remaining 10% (approximately) in
moisture. This type of protein contains little to no fat and
lactose. Because it generally tastes better and is easier to
digest, it is more expensive than whey protein concentrate.
