Everything About Whey Proteins

What Is Whey Protein :

Whey Protein Powder is a unique supplement derived from grass fed cow's milk. The casein, which is a milk protein commonly associated with allergies, is removed when producing whey protein.Whey protein has become a staple supplement for most bodybuilders and other athletes because it's a great protein.Whey Protein powder contains an excellent index of amino acids which are the building blocks of body.

Nowadays people ,who are taking whey protein do not even know from which method their proteins has been extracted,only two thinks can be thought while taking any protein powder these are:

Protein is Extracted WITH HEAT.
Protein is extracted without Heat or Lack of Heat.

Role Of  Heat:Low priced supplements are processed using high heat or chemical extractions, due to which a low biological value Protein in Extracted and that much heat also strips minerals and vitamins of their quality.on the other hand brands that are high priced are processed using low-heat that is least destructive to the inherent goodness of Protein.Plus, all their extracts are all- natural, and sometimes organic.

1) The amount of heat (temperature)
2) The duration of the heat (time), are two deciding factors.

So now you Know what your Protein Is all about.

FACT: It requires around 320 Kg of raw liquid(Which gets separated from pasteurized milk to separate casein and whey liquid) to prepare your 2.23 kg(5 Lbs) Whey Protein Isolate.

Are all Whey Proteins the Same?

NO! Just as there are many different types of cheese, there are also many different methods of extracting whey protein from whole milk and each process has an effect on the quality of the whey produced. There is micro-filtration, ultra-filtration, cross-filtration, and ionization to name a few.

1.)CFM(Cross Flow Micro filtration and ultra-filtration) is one of the best methods to extract protein in the market today.

2.)Normal Micro and Ultra filtration process ensures the highest quality whey protein.

3.)Ion exchange is made by taking a concentrate and running it through what is called an "ion exchange" column to get an "ion exchange whey isolate.Though the protein content is increased in this method but, many of the most important sub-fractions are lost or greatly reduced.but differences between a micro filtered type isolate is minimal from that of an ion exchange.

So now onward check if your protein is High temperature heated or low temperature heated, and it's method of extraction is very important, though many methods giving high protein doses are high temperature protein which can reduce or eliminate important sub-fractions but few brands are producing whey using low temperature or even normal heat but not to a greater extent and their quality remains uncompromising.

So Choose wisely, Stay Fit, Stay Healthy.
