BEST Whey Protein Guide | How to Decide

nutrition, weight loss, muscle building, the word protein always gets thrown into
the mix; and arguably one of the most popular proteins out there (in supplement
form) is whey protein. Whey is derived from milk and goes through several
processes to be taken from the liquid whey form to the powder form that the
consumer recognizes today. Just like any other protein like chicken, fish, dairy,
soy, yada yada yada. Whey protein is composed of amino acids. These amino
acids are building blocks for protein your body will take these building
blocks and build many types of combinations for a protein and as we
know protein is needed for muscle repair and growth. So why whey? Whey is what’s
called a complete protein which means it contains all nine essential amino acids.
These nine are considered essential because your body cannot produce them on
its own and these have to be obtained through the foods that we eat.
So there are actually three types of whey protein. The first one is a whey
concentrate and a concentrate, just like the name suggests, is a concentrated
protein source. The concentrate can have anywhere between 70 and 80 percent
protein content with the remainder of that being in the form of carbs, lactose
and fat. The second one, and the one I use, is
a whey isolate and again just like the name suggests is an isolated form of
protein. The difference between a concentrate and an isolate is the
isolate has actually had more of the fat and lactose removed during the whole
process which allows there to be a higher protein content and that can be
up to 95 percent depending on the brand. Now the third is a hydrolysate and
hydrolysate basically has already gone through a partial breakdown which just
means that your body will digest it faster. A good example is like a mama
bird regurgitating food into the mouths of their baby birds. Happy belated Mother’s Day. A hydrolysate
can actually come in a isolate form and a concentrate form. So which is best? Well
it’s up to you. Your budget, lifestyle and how your body reacts to the proteins is
going to be the ultimate factor. So the pros and cons. Whey concentrate has a
lower protein content however it can be much cheaper because it doesn’t have to
go through an extra process of removing the extra fat and lactose. And also the
extra lactose and fat can actually add a little bit better texture and
consistency making it a little bit more palatable. Isolate is the exact opposite;
it has a higher protein content but at a cost. The isolate may be a little bit
nicer on your gastrointestinal tract because it contains less lactose.
This also rings true for the hydrolysate. Keep in mind the name supplement.
Supplement means extra not a replacement. Always try and obtain the
majority of your nutrition through food and if you need a little boost then use
the protein powder. I hope you enjoyed this video if you did make sure you give

    Good information about protien 👌

    Informational, thanks!

    Are there any differences in taste and texture (when used as a shake)? The powders I've used so far were all horrid "shut your eyes and down the hatch".
