Protein is an essential macronutrient that your body needs in large amounts. It’s scientifically proven to help build and maintain muscle, which is vital whatever your fitness goal – whether that’s bulking, getting lean, or simply toning up.
Although we consume most of our protein from dietary sources, including meat, fish and dairy, protein shakes are becoming an increasingly popular way of getting more protein into our everyday diet.
Whey protein is the most commonly used protein powder, but does that mean it’s the best choice for you? We’ll show you the whey…
Once considered a waste product in the cheese making process, whey is now the most popular type of protein powder available, widely consumed by athletes and gym-goers throughout the world.
There’s three main types of whey protein: concentrate, isolate and hydrolysed. But, what’s the difference?
Whey protein concentrate usually contains around 80% protein, a small amount of fat, and some carbs. Our Impact Whey Protein is packed with an impressive 21g of protein per serving, with only 1.9g of fat and 1g carbs, perfect for supporting all your training goals.
Whey protein isolate is the purest source of whey protein, undergoing a purification and refinement process to ensure maximum protein integrity. The result? More protein, less fat and fewer carbs! Our Impact Whey Isolate boasts over 90% protein, while also being low in fat and containing less than 1g of carbs – the ideal choice if you’re keeping an eye on calories, too.
Hydrolysed whey protein is the fastest absorbing of the three, using enzymes to break large protein chains into smaller peptides, releasing amino acids more quickly into the body. Our Hydrolysed Whey Protein is bursting with 24g of pre-digested protein, for faster absorption when you need it most.
Did you know? Our Impact Whey Protein and Impact Whey Isolate are ranked grade A by independent tester Labdoor for both quality and value. They’re officially certified as two of the best whey protein powders on the market.
Whey is known as a complete protein that provides all nine essential amino acids. These can’t be produced by your body so they must come from your diet. Whey protein has an excellent natural amino acid profile, including high levels of BCAAs – the building blocks for new protein – which make up the structure of new muscle tissue.
Often favored for how quickly it’s absorbed and easy it is to digest, whey protein arrives at the muscles much faster, making it essential for your post-workout gains.
Drinking a high-quality whey protein immediately after training could significantly boost your recovery, and we’ve raised with bar with Thewhey™.
