WPC Vs WPI

PROTEIN POWDER BENEFITS

Protein feeds muscle, building muscle helps burn fat. Whey Protein Concentrate is one of the best sources of easily digestible protein to help supplement your dietary protein intake and support your training goals.

Nude Pure Australian Grass Fed Whey Protein Concentrate with Biohawk Releif powder is the perfect balance of immune boosting nutrition wit's 100% digestible high protein content. Nude Pure WPC delivers 80gms of protein per 100g and is very high in essential and non-essential amino acids.

With only 119 calories per serve and rich in nutrients & amino acids our Biohawk WPC is ideal for anyone wanting a nutritionally superior dietary supplement. These features make it the best natural powder for helping to build, repair and retain muscle mass (which is a critical component of losing fat!).

Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) VS Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)

Here is why we generally recommend WPC instead of the commonly used WPI:

  1. Processing
  2. Nutrients
  3. Protein fractions

1. PROCESSING

Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) is ultra filtered using filter membrane sizes around one micrometer (or 0.001 millimetres). WPI is even more processed, going through filters 4 times smaller again!

So what does this mean?

Not only does it mean that you are getting a less processed end product with WPC (something we always aim for at Nude), but it also means that WPC contains more good “stuff” like essential fats that contain anabolic growth factors not found in WPI protein. More on this below…

2. NUTRIENTS

Because Whey Protein Concentrate does not go through the same super fine filtering/processing as WPI, it contains 5-7% milk fat, loaded with important nutrients!

This milk/butter fat contains anabolic growth factors which are not normally found in whey protein isolate. The butter fat also contains high levels of phosphor-lipids, including Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), which is known for its ability in improving body composition! This butter fat you thought may be full of unhealthy, saturated fats, is actually full of essential fatty acids and important nutrients to fuel your training and recovery.

The addition of Biohawk ginger to the WPC makes all the nutrients bio-available and ready for absorption.

3. PROTEIN FRACTIONS

Whey protein consists of several different proteins; they are:

  • beta-lactoglobulin
  • glycomacropeptide
  • alpha-lactalbumin
  • immunoglobulins
  • proteose-peptone
  • bovine serum albumin

and minor peptides such as lactoferrin, lysozyme, lactoperoxidase and beta casein.

One key difference between WPC and WPI is that Whey Protein Concentrate generally contains more lactoferrin than whey protein isolates.

Lactoferrin helps the intestines fight against bacteria that cause infections and food poisoning due to its anti-bacterial activity.

And finally, the amount of health-promoting immunoglobulins in Whey Protein Concentrate is also generally more than whey protein isolate.

CONCLUSION

We generally recommend WPC instead of WPI for its fantastic growth and health stimulating properties.

When would you use WPI instead?

If you are sensitive to lactose or want a protein powder with less calories (read more about calories here first!) then WPI may be more suitable. However be aware that WPI still does contain 1-2% lactose in most cases.
