Whey Isolates have not been the focus of many local companies for quite a long time, with us having to rely on international brands for an isolate protein source. NutriTech released a dedicated whey isolate (opposed to most others that were isolate-dominant), and it really shapes up to the international giants.

What is whey isolate?

Whey protein is one of the highest bioavailable sources of protein out there, with an absorption rate of over 80% (depending on quality) and can even stretch to over 95%. Furthermore, whey protein is far purer in terms of protein count, as a 30g serving of whey contains roughly 22g of protein (on average), whereas 30g of chicken yields roughly 9g of protein.

Whey comes in three main forms, namely concentrate, isolate, and hydrolysate, but here we will be focusing on whey isolate. Whey is, essentially, a by-product of cheese manufacturing, and is also found in milk. Pretty much any dairy product contains whey protein. The variations of whey protein refer to the different stages of filtration the whey goes through.

The most basic variant is whey concentrate, which goes through a simple stage of filtration to remove impurities, making it safe to consume. Concentrate contains all the lactose, carbs, and fats that whey has to provide and is typically the cheapest variant of whey protein. Whey isolate is the next stage of filtration that whey goes through and involves taking whey concentrate and filtering it through a microscopic filter to remove 99% of the lactose, carbs, and fats, leaving behind pure protein.

Why use a whey isolate?

Whey isolate is an excellent choice for those who are looking for a pure source of protein without any other factors that could hinder absorption. Also, those who are using a whey protein source during bodybuilding showcases would benefit greatly from a whey isolate. Furthermore, whey isolate is perfect for those who suffer from lactose intolerance, IBS, or even have slight trouble digesting large amounts of lactose. Due to the extended filtration process, whey isolate is digested far easier than concentrate, making it faster absorbing with a higher bioavailability.

Nutritech’s Whey Protein Isolate

Nutritech’s Whey Protein Isolate boasts an impressive 85% protein per serving (27g), with less than a percent of lactose and fat. While managing the keep these impressive numbers, it remains a delicious taste with a milkshake-esque consistency. The Swiss Vanilla is perfect for those looking for an easy to drink shake, and those looking for a base to throw some other ingredients in.

There are three other flavours to choose from: Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter, and Dutch Chocolate. These three cater more for those with a sweet tooth, but they are not overly sweet to a point where they make you feel sick after drinking them. The Peanut Butter is my personal favourite.

NUTRITECH ELITE SERIES WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE – Not all whey proteins are the same… the primary difference between whey protein concentrate and isolate is the amount of protein, lactose and fat. Whey protein isolate in raw form is over 90% protein and contains roughly 0.5% lactose and milk fat.
