Whey Protein Concentrate is the concentrated, powdered form of whey protein. Whey protein comes about from the yoghurt and cheese-making process where the high-protein whey is separated from the whole milk product. Whey powder is most commonly made from whey leftover from the cheese-making process – approximately 10 litres of whey is produced in association with 1kg of cheese.
And if you’re wondering what whey looks like, you’ve probably seen it on top of a tub of yoghurt. If you’ve ever noticed that watery liquid sitting on top of your yoghurt, that’s whey. Stir it back into your yoghurt for a natural protein boost.
Liquid whey has about one per cent protein content in it. To refine it into the high-protein boost which makes up Whey Protein Concentrate, liquid whey is refined, processed and dried to form the powder more recognisable as the base to your protein shake. Finally, flavours and sometimes colours and fillers are added to make it more palatable and easily mixed with water. This is where it starts to become clear that not every Whey Protein Concentrate on the market is created equally, and it’s where you can start to find the factors that make up a high-quality Whey Protein Concentrate.
As with all supplements, no one needs Whey Protein Concentrate if they’re getting enough protein through the foods they’re eating. However, Whey Protein Concentrate can be an easy and convenient way to get a protein boost after a workout, to help you make a healthier choice when you’re hungry or craving something sweet or to make sure you’re hitting your protein macronutrients when you’re working, travelling or finding it difficult to eat enough protein day-to-day. We see Whey Protein Concentrate as a boost to support your healthy food choices.
There are so many benefits of Whey Protein Concentrate, including that it is...
To sum up, Whey Protein Concentrate is one of the best all-round protein powders to fulfil your protein needs, amino acid requirements, tastes great, is easy on your bank balance and it’s ready to consume in seconds – you literally just add water.
We’ve already discussed that Whey Protein is a complete source of protein with all of the amino acids your body needs, including Branched Chain Amino Acids. And most people are using Whey Protein Concentrate to support lean muscle growth and reduce fat, boosting the metabolism in the process.
Look for a Whey Protein Concentrate that has a high protein content – generally 70 per cent to 80 per cent protein.
Choose a Whey Protein Concentrate with natural sweeteners like Stevia or a safe artificial sweetener like sucralose that only needs to be included in a very small amount– anything with added sugars as one of the first ingredients will be undoing a lot of your hard work. You can expect Whey Protein Concentrate from Bulk Nutrients to have a protein content percentage from the mid-70s to the mid-80s.
The Cleveland Clinic says diabetics especially should be wary of any supplements that have added sugars, fillers or dextrins or maltodextrins (sugars made from starch). These are often added to “stretch” the protein powder and add a more palatable taste.
Finally, choose a reputable supplier for your Whey Protein Concentrate. At Bulk Nutrients, we source our whey protein from grass-fed dairy cows based in Australia, New Zealand or the United States of America. All of our products, including our high-quality Whey Protein Concentrate, are developed, blended, packed and shipped from clean, green Tasmania, right here in Australia.
We back up our Whey Protein Concentrate (and all of our products) with independent scientific testing by the Australian Government’s National Measurement Institute (NMI).
Our testing shows that the Bulk Nutrients Whey Protein Concentrate has some of the highest raw protein percentages on the market, up to two per cent higher than some raw Whey Protein Concentrates.
When it comes to a high-quality Whey Protein Concentrate, you can’t mask poor raw ingredients. Remember, at Bulk Nutrients, we source our top-quality whey from grass-fed dairy cows in Australia, New Zealand and the United States with preferred sources in each country. We only select raw Whey Protein Concentrate which is hormone (rBST) free. This hormone, recombinant bovine somatotropin, is a type of artificial growth hormone that increases milk production, but it’s not present in any of the whey we source for Bulk Nutrients products.
Our Whey Protein Concentrate has a consistent flavour profile, made from the same cheese year-round. Other Whey Protein Concentrates use a mix of cheeses as their starting point for Whey Protein Concentrates, which is why you might find unpleasantly surprising taste variations in other Whey Protein Concentrate powders.
We also focus on purity in our proteins. You’ll find other companies may use fillers and extra ingredients in their products – both to stretch the product economically and to make it more palatable. At Bulk Nutrients, we believe Whey Protein Concentrate is most effective in its purest form, which is why we add the smallest amounts of sweetener and flavour in our Whey Protein Concentrates. This way, you get a delicious Whey Protein Concentrate that packs a nutritional punch.
Finally, our Whey Protein Concentrate comes in your choice of 10 flavours, so you’ll find the perfect taste to tempt your palate with so much variety you’ll never get bored. Think Choc Honeycomb, Peppermint Slice and Salted Caramel, as well as Raw unflavoured Whey Protein Concentrate for the purists.
When it comes to choosing a supplement that has so many benefits to support your fitness goals AND boost your health and wellbeing, you can’t go past Whey Protein Concentrate.
