WAR OF THE WHEY BLENDS

by Meenal Sharma | May 11, 2017 Views :

As anybody who has ever entered a nutrition and supplement store (online or offline) knows, it’s easy to get confused amongst all the protein packs out there. In our last blog CHOOSING THE BEST WHEY we taught you how to get the most protein for your buck by reading the labels. There is no arguing the fact that whey protein is the best source for muscle building and post workout recovery. You already know that not all proteins are the same. But did you know that by just sticking to one protein type – whether a Whey Concentrate/ Whey Isolate/ Whey Hydrolysate – you can’t get the maximum advantage of whey proteins?


Whey Blends- the Best of all Whey Proteins. A Whey Blend with a combination of whey proteins, offers many advantages that may be lacking when buying each one of them as a stand-alone product.

Different types of whey proteins provide specific advantages that are unique to themselves.So how do you them sort out? Given below is a short introduction to the different proteins and a straight forward comparison between the top selling whey proteins to make it easier for you to decide which protein best satisfies your needs and wants.

Different Whey proteins and their advantages

  • Whey protein concentrates (WPC) - These are a rich source of bio-active micro-fractions that are naturally present in whey itself. 

  • Whey protein Isolates (WPI) - These have a higher protein content with minimal or negligible sugar, carb and fat content. 

  • Whey protein hydrolysates (WPH) - These are absorbed rapidly into your system as they are pre-digested, and thus suitable for faster recovery.

As a hard-working individual looking to maximize results, all these advantages of different types of whey protein are desirable. However, when you buy any one of the different type of whey protein in their stand-alone form, you have to pick and choose your protein as per the most desired advantage.

So if you want to ensure the presence of natural bioactive fractions in your whey protein, then you may opt for a complete Whey Concentrate product. But if you deem lower carb and fat content as important, then you may opt for a Whey Isolate or Whey hydrolysate product. However, you will have to sacrifice the bioactive micro-fractions or settle for lower content, depending on the process through which the isolates and hydrolysates present in your product are obtained.


Whey Blends- the Best of all Whey Proteins

This is where Whey Blends turn out to be better. Whey blends contain a combination of 2 or all 3 types of Whey proteins. A Whey Blend with a combination of whey proteins, offers many advantages that may be lacking when buying each one of them as a stand-alone product.

For example, a product containing Whey Isolate and Whey concentrate offers benefits such as higher protein percentage along with presence of bio-active micro-fractions in comparison to a standalone Whey concentrate or product.

Also the higher protein percentage means lower amounts of net carb, sugar and fat content which makes it suitable for everyone from beginner to advanced athletes for post- workout recovery as well as muscle building.

  • @RahulSingla: Bro, the numbers speak for themselves. Our consumers are extremely intelligent, and no one can misguide them. This is exactly what the article is about - its a clean, Non-Biased comparison of what's on the label. Its like the consumers have picked up the 3 packs and are seeing it for themselves. We have clearly mentioned the Cookies & Cream Flavor compared, and even if you compare any flavor with any number of servings, the table would still come out similar! And my friend, Neulife also sells ON Whey Gold Standard. Team NCNR will always state the True facts as they are, and guide the consumers to take an informed decision. -Team NCNR
