Whey Protein Blends
A high-quality protein derived from cow's milk, whey protein is the preferred choice of most bodybuilders because it is easy to digest, efficiently absorbed into the body, contains all the essential amino acids and is a rich source of BCAAs. Whey protein blends most often consist of both whey protein isolate (the more pure version, which has more protein and less fat and lactose per serving) and whey protein concentrate. They are often found blended together to better balance the faster absorption of whey protein isolate with the slower absorption of whey protein concentrate. Higher-quality versions of whey protein blends incorporate whey isolate with hydrolyzed whey, which offers even faster, more immediate absorption and subsequent bioavailability.
