Whey consistency is generally in the middle of the pack when compared to isolate protein, hydrolyzed protein, and casein protein. It provides a great consistency for great tasting protein shakes, smoothies and allows to be blended with common items such as bananas, peanut butter, fruits, berries and more and can also be found in protein bars and protein snacks.
Whey protein is a byproduct of cheese, various proteins that accumulate when processing cheese, in the process the whey separates and is converted into powder form. Because it is a dairy product, those sensitive to dairy may not be a fit and may want to look into either vegan protein or hydrolyzed protein.
How do I tell if a whey protein is quality?
A good whey powder should be in the range of 24-28 grams of protein per scoop, digests easily without discomfort, bloating, or gas. The protein powder should mix well and be consistent. Buy protein from brands that have a reputation for quality, or offers product testing.
