Which Whey Protein is best for muscle building?

The best whey protein powder for muscle building should contain a whey protein isolate as its main ingredient. Whey concentrates don’t offer the same efficiency and value for money as isolates. You should also select a whey protein powder that is low or has zero carbohydrates and fat.

For those seeking the very best of the best, whey hydrolysates are whey isolates that have been further processed to make them more pure and are pre-digested. This breaks down some of the amino acid bonds and makes the digestion and absorption of the amino acids contained in the whey protein much more rapid. This may be especially useful for elite athletes willing the pay the higher cost.
