Whey protein is a popular dietary supplement among athletes and fitness enthusiasts, as it provides a high-quality source of protein that is quickly absorbed by the body. However, not all types of whey protein are created equal. Here, we'll compare whey isolate to other common methods of whey protein production and you will discover why we choose to use whey protein isolate above all, when we released ZULU.
Whey protein concentrate: Whey protein concentrate is the most common form of whey protein. It contains around 70-80% protein by weight, with the remaining 20-30% consisting of fat, lactose, and other compounds. While it is generally considered a high-quality source of protein, it may not be suitable for people who are lactose intolerant or have difficulty digesting dairy products.
Whey protein hydrolysate: Whey protein hydrolysate is a type of whey protein that has been pre-digested, or "hydrolyzed", into smaller peptides and amino acids. This makes it easier to digest and absorb than other forms of whey protein. It is often used in medical and sports nutrition products due to its rapid absorption rate and high bio-availability.
Whey protein isolate: Whey protein isolate is a highly refined form of whey protein that has been filtered to remove almost all of the lactose, fat, and other compounds, leaving a product that is over 90% protein by weight. This makes it a popular choice among people who are lactose intolerant or have difficulty digesting dairy products. It is also a good choice for people who want to minimize their calorie and carbohydrate intake while maximizing their protein intake.
So, what are the benefits of ZULU Whey Isolate over other forms of whey protein?
As with any dietary supplement we create, it was important to choose high-quality ingredients that yields many benefits within ZULU.
