What is Whey Concentrate?
Whey concentrate is the cheapest and least refined whey protein that is made from a milk byproduct of the cheese making process. Whey concentrate is generally considered inferior to whey isolate which has had additional filtering to remove excess fat, carbs and lactose from the whey protein. This can make protein powders which include whey concentrate less digestible for those with lactose intolerance. As whey concentrate is only 80% pure, we recommend the use of whey protein powders which include whey isolate as the main protein component. They generally offer superior value for money and are more easily digested.
