Sports Performance Quick Tip: Whey Protein Isolate vs. Concentrate?

Sports Performance Recovery – Isolate Vs. Concentrate protein


The big debate, whey protein isolate or concentrate? The popular choice right now is isolate. Isolate proteins cut out all the excess fats, sugars etc. Leading to a higher percentage of protein. Sounds like the clear winner, right? Not exactly. Many Isolate proteins go through a high heat acid stripping process to isolate just the proteins. This acid stripping can actually denature the protein and strip out the good nutrients that are naturally present in whey protein.

Here’s the kicker, whey protein concentrate isn’t the clear winner either. You have to look at the type of cow the protein is coming from and what the process is to make the protein. There are two types of cows, A1 and A2. A1 cows are what most protein brands use, these proteins can be contaminated with hormones and antibiotics that are pumped into the cows. Our suggestion? Grass fed whey protein from A2 cows. These cows are fed a normal grass diet and clean of antibiotics, hormones and GMO’s. Also the protein will keep its nutritional value through a cold filtering process, unlike the acid stripping process used in many isolates.

Here are a few options to choose from.

Naked Grass Fed Whey Protein, a great product that has minimal ingredients.

Axe Nutrition Grass Fed Whey Protein, high quality protein with added probiotics for immune support.
