What Protein Do You Prefer?

What’s the difference between Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate?

Whey protein concentrate is the dried product left behind when whey is forced through a filter. After processing and packaging, whey protein concentrate should contain around 70%-80% protein, along with lactose, fat, vitamins and minerals. Whey protein isolate is created when most of the lactose and fat is removed from whey protein concentrate. The protein levels rise above 90%, but most of the other nutritional benefits have been removed.

We recommend Isolate if:

- you are strictly monitoring your carbohydrate and fat intake (Isolate has very low content of these macro nutrients);

- if you are lactose intolerant (Isolate has very low lactose);

- if you prefer a higher protein percentage and higher gram of protein per scoop;

- you are always taking advantage of that 45-minute 'anabolic window:' :) :) 

- you can spend that extra $$$; and

- if you are not a 'Vegan.'

We recommend Concentrate if:

- you do not mind a slightly higher carbohydrate and fat contents;

- you are not lactose intolerant;

- if you prefer a 'slower' protein absorption; and

- if you are monitoring your budget to make 'gains.' 

- if you are not a 'Vegan.'

Either way, both proteins are good. MyCORE Whey Proteins are sourced from healthy, grass-fed New Zealand dairy cows that we guarantee are free from rBST and rBGH (recombinant bovine somatotropin / recombinant bovine growth hormone). 

There are no artificial flavours, sweeteners, colours or preservatives in our whey proteins, and we use only the finest products.

We use high-quality low-temperature ultra-filtration techniques to ensure the whey protein’s nutritional and functional properties are maintained.
