What is Whey Protein Isolate?
Whey protein isolate (WPI) goes through the same initial processing as whei protein concentrate WPC; however, to isolate the protein to higher concentrations than typical WPC, WPI is sent through additional filtering loops, which further removes lactose, fat, and undesired minerals.
Due to the additional time spent in the cold micro-filtering process, whey protein isolate yields a higher protein density than whey concentrates by 10-15%. WPI is also considered much cleaner (less unwanted minerals) than WPC.
As a result of the multiple filtration cycles, a much more pure protein is made, WPI contains less fat, less heavy metals, and fewer carbohydrates per serving than WPC. This additional filtering yields a whey isolate protein powder by volume to be, on average, 90% to 95% protein.
What is Whey Protein Concentrate?
During the processing of the liquid whey, it takes several steps to increase the protein content. Once the whey has reached 80% protein, it can be dried to form whey protein concentrate (WPC) powder. Whey concentrate consists of 80% protein and 20% fat and sugar (carbohydrates, lactose).
The concentrate contains more calories and tends to be naturally sweeter due to the simple-sugar (lactose) that remains after processing. The lactose can also be responsible for stomach irritability for those that may be lactose intolerant or coping with Irritable Bowel Syndrome or other forms of Irritable Bowel Disorder.
Whey protein concentrate is generally less expensive than whey protein isolate to make. However, for the most part, this translates into more significant profit margins for the brands as WPC products tend to align more with WPI product pricing, in a sense preying on those consumers who are not aware of the difference.
