First let’s talk a little about what Whey Protein is :
Whey is one of the two major components of milk, whey is the liquid portion of the milk that separates from the curds , during the process of making cheese. Whey contains proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.
Due to its strong amino acid profile and ease of absorption, it is arguably the most popular sports nutrition supplement. Whey Protein has been shown to augment muscle protein synthesis, support fat burning, boost the immune system, improve insulin sensitivity, and decrease appetite. Additionally, whey concentrate is shown to boost production of glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant.
The *BV (Biological Valve) of Whey protein is 110-159 the highest of any food, BV refers to the amount of protein (nitrogen) retained in the body per gram of protein absorbed.
How it’s made:
Pushing the liquid portion of milk through a filter creates whey protein. The material left behind is dried and forms whey protein concentrate. Concentrate contains varying amounts of fat and carbohydrates in the form of lactose. The percentage of protein varies from about 30% to about 90 %. includes a variety of protein subfractions, many of which have significant biologic activity and health benefits.
Denatured (processed at high temperatures) versus undenatured ( processed at low temperatures): Whey Protein includes a variety of protein subfractions, many of which have significant biologic activity and health benefits. Evidence suggests that these peptides must remain in their native, undenatured form (the form that exists in nature) in order to exert these health benefits.
Grass fed : simple means just that the cows were Grass fed there maybe some additional health benefits from a healthier fat ratio "remember you are what you eat , eats" and there are the environmental benefits of cows being grass fed as opposed to feed lot cows.
What's the difference between Whey Protein Concentrate & Whey Isolate ?
Whey Concentrate powder : contains from 11 to 14.5 percent protein, 63 to 75 percent lactose and 1 to 1.5 percent milk fat.
Whey Protein Isolate: contains over 90 percent protein and contains roughly 0.5 percent of lactose and milk fat. Whey isolate is especially beneficial for you if you are lactose intolerant and can not digest the lactose in whey protein.
