Whey can be processed to yield whey protein in Four forms: :
2. Whey isolate
3. Whey concentrate.
4, Native Whey
The difference between the whey protein forms is the composition of the product, particularly the protein content.
Whey protein hydrolysates (WPH) are enzymatically predigested for maximal speed of absorption. This additional processing often comes at an increased cost, but is considered superior for post-workout muscle hypertrophy. Additionally, some individuals who experience intestinal problems with WPC or WPI may not experience problems when consuming hydrolysate.
Whey protein isolates (WPI) contain the higher percentage of pure protein and can be pure enough to be virtually lactose free, carbohydrate free, fat free and cholesterol free.
Whey protein concentrate (WPC) is the cheapest and most common form of whey protein. WPC is of a similar structure to WPI except its purity and biological value is not as high.
Native whey protein is extracted from skim milk, not a byproduct of cheese production, and produced as a concentrate and isolate
