PhD Whey Isolate is one of the most outstanding Whey Protein Isolate's (WPI) available. Whey protein isolate (usually called just ""Whey Isolate"") is a dietary supplement and food ingredient created by separating components from milk. Whey is a by-product of the cheese-making process and is processed to yield whey protein in three forms:
1- Whey Isolate (Also used in Pharma Whey HT+)
2- Whey Concentrate (Used in Diet Whey, Pharma Whey HT+ and other PhD products)
3- Whey Hydrolysate (Used in Pharma Whey HT+)
The difference between the whey protein forms is the composition of the product, particularly the protein (and thereby, the lactose and fat) content. Whey Isolates contain the higher percentage of pure protein and can be pure enough to be virtually lactose free, carbohydrate free, fat free, and cholesterol free. PhD Whey Isolate contains around 82% protein (this can be calculated at about 86% by dry weight- which is a method many other brands use incorrectly to promote their own Whey Isolates) and is made using 100% pure Whey Isolate and adding flavourings and sweetener only, nothing else.
PhD Whey Isolate is highly bioavailable and is very quickly absorbed into the body, it also has a high concentration of BCAA's (Almost 6g per single scoop serving) which are highly concentrated in muscle tissue, and are used to fuel working muscles and stimulate protein synthesis greater that any other amino acids.
PhD Whey Isolate is manufactured using an advanced combination of ultra and micro-filtration processes, ensuring no protein denaturing and maximum protein integrity. These processes produce a pure, quality whey protein, rich in glycomacropeptides (GMP) and bio-active peptides, whilst ensuring that fat, lactose and other unwanted ingredients are 'isolated' out.
PhD Whey Isolate is also derived from grass-fed cow’s milk which is free from hormones, antibiotics and genetic modification. Whey Protein derived from cow’s milk is said to yield a higher content of BCAA’s, boosting the overall nutritional content of the product.
