It is already known that whey protein is a comprehensive protein which contains 9 essential amino acids and is low in lactose content. Typically, whey protein is a blend of the following substances:
- Bovine serum albumin
There are 3 main types of whey protein on the market: whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate and whey protein hydrolysate.
What are the Benefits of Whey Protein?
1. Whey Protein Concentrate
Whey Protein Concentrate is the most popular whey protein which contain low fat and low carbohydrates, in this case lactose. The percentage of protein in whey protein concentrate mostly depends on how concentrated it is. In most cases, the lower level concentrates are more likely to have around 30% of protein, while the higher level concentrates have up to 90% of protein.
2. Whey Protein Isolate
Whey Protein Isolate is a whey protein that are further processed to get rid of all the fat and lactose. Whey protein isolate typically contains at least 90% of protein.

3. Whey Protein Hydrolysate
Whey Protein Hydrolysate is a whey protein which is considered as the “predigested” form of whey protein as it has already undergone fragmentary hydrolysis or a method necessary for our body to absorb protein. Moreover, whey protein hydrolysate does not need as much digestion as the other 2 forms of whey protein as mentioned earlier. In addition, whey protein hydrolysate is usually used in medical protein supplements and infant formulas due to its improved digestibility and also reduced allergen potential.
Many studies have proven that whey protein supplementation, get along with endurance workout could aid to improve muscle mass protein synthesis and also support the growth of lean muscle mass.
A scientific study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism found that “whey protein supplementation during workout brings many benefits compared to resistance workout alone.”
In addition, this study also reveal that “males who consume supplemented whey protein have a greater gain in lean muscle mass.” Another study that also published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism concluded that in “2 specific groups of matched, workout-trained males whey isolate brought substantially greater gains in terms of strength, lean body muscle mass and a lessen in fat levels compared to supplementation with casein throughout a vibrant ten-week resistance-workout program.”
All of these findings have proven that whey protein provides many benefits, especially for those who want to build muscle mass fast.
