Whey protein concentrate is the cheapest and most common form of whey protein, a byproduct of cheese production. Whey protein concentrate is a common Bodybuilding supplement used to increase dietary protein intake, often with the goal of maximizing muscle hypertrophy.
Whey protein typically comes in three major forms: concentrate (WPC), isolate (WPI), and hydrolysate (WPH).
Concentrates typically have a low (but still significant) level of fat and cholesterol but, in general, have higher levels of bioactive compounds as well as carbohydrates in the form of lactose — they are only 29%–89% protein by weight.
Whey protein concentrate (Whey Protein Concentration / WPC)
This is the most common form, usually extracted from milk or soy, wherein the protein content of about 30-90% to about 4-52% of lactose, about 1-9% fat, while others contain slight carbohydrates, minerals, still retain the natural nutrients in milk, because dealing with the degree of decomposition is low, the price is also cheaper.
Whey protein isolate (Whey Protein Isolate / WPI)
Than whey protein concentrate even more advanced treatment, the whey and lactose in the fat to get rid of almost all protein content as high as 90% -95%, about 0.5% lactose, fat about 0.5%, considerably suitable for lactose intolerant people. theoretically, also due to more advanced process to remove impurities, separation of nutrients contained in whey protein will be lower than whey protein concentrate, but does not affect the absorption of the protein supply effect
Hydrolyzed whey protein (Whey Protein Hydrolysate / WPH)
The breakdown of protein into the smallest molecules almost do not need to be directly absorbed by the body to digest the state :( peptide) allows the body to quickly absorb protein, protein also reduces the possibility of allergies, the price is relatively expensive in many protein content about 80-90%, about 0.5-10% lactose, fat about 0.5 to 8%
