Whey Protein is a high quality dairy protein and a natural by-product of cheese manufacture. Our Whey Protein ingredients are produced from the rich milk of hormone free, grass-fed cows so all our customers are therefore guaranteed the best quality whey protein available.
Types of Whey Protein
Whey Protein Concentrate
Whey protein concentrate is protein extracted from whey that is concentrated by removing the water and is typically approx. 80% protein. It is produced by Ultra-Filtration technology and contains high levels of protein and branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
Whey Protein Isolate
Whey protein isolate is produced by Cross – Flow Micro Filtration; a natural process which employs a ceramic membrane to remove fat and lactose without the use of heat and chemicals. Whey protein isolate has a protein content of approx.90%. This gentle procedure minimises protein denaturation, maintains a better mineral profile and preserves more of the valuable dairy fractions. The resulting proteins are exceptionally pure, virtually fat-free and contain only trace amounts of lactose.
Hydrolysed Whey Protein
Whey proteins are made up of long chains of amino acids held together by peptide bonds. Hydrolysed whey protein is created by a process known as enzymatic hydrolysis, where enzymes (naturally-occurring proteins produced by all living cells) are used to break down these bonds. This process produces peptides of various sizes and single amino acids. By mimicking the way our body digests proteins, enzymatic hydrolysis produces whey protein hydro lysates which are effectively pre-digested for superior absorption.
Whey Protein Benefits
Whey Protein Side Effects
Whey Protein should be consumed responsibly by following the recommendations on pack. There are no documented side effects from consuming whey protein providing you are using the correct dosages and are not lactose intolerant or allergic to dairy proteins. However there is on-going research into the long-term effects of consuming excessive amounts of protein in the diet. Some of the negatives of consuming too much protein include increased weight gain and increased excretion of calcium. Kinetica Whey Protein is safe and screened within the WADA framework to ensure a dependable sports nutrition product.
