What is whey isolate?
Protein molecules are generally extracted, for the purpose of use in protein fortified foods, from a few main food sources: Dairy or cow milk (e.g. Whey and Casein), and Plants (e.g. Pea, Soy, Hemp). The isolated molecules are not identical in their structure- therefore, protein isolates derived from different food products come with varying benefits (4, 6) Whey protein molecules are found in cow milk. The protein molecules are extracted from the dairy through a series of filtration methods. These filtration methods separate the protein molecules from most of the other dairy compounds like lactose (7). Following the initial filtration, what is left is called “whey concentrate”. Whey concentrate is then continually filtered until the contents of the filtered material are almost solely whey protein molecules- creating “whey isolate”.
What is a Meal Replacement?
Meal replacement products are beginning to make a name for themselves in the nutrition world. With the abundance of quick and easy meal options increasing, provided by fast food/chain restaurants and premade “budget meals”, we have started to realize how many of us are simply filling rather than fueling ourselves. There is a well documented correlation between the increased availability of processed ingredients, and the American obesity epidemic. Our digestive systems have become inflamed, due to a lack of microbial gut health, and our endocrine systems have become overwhelmed by an onslaught of indigestible, or unusable, processed sugars and unhealthy oils.
