What is Whey? Whey is the liquid portion of milk separated from the curd portion of milk during the cheese-making process. The liquid whey is packed full of minerals, proteins (think amino acids, or building blocks for muscles), vitamins, carbohydrates, and fats - so the healthy part of the milk - AND it is highly absorbable by the gastrointestinal tract . The WHEY CONCENTRATE is formed when the liquid, minerals, fats, and carbohydrates are further filtered leaving a powder that is about 70% to 85% proteins. When the whey concentrate is further filtered and ionized removing even more of the carbohydrates and fats, what is left behind is the nearly pure WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE that is strictly building supplies for muscles. HYDROLYZED WHEY is even further processed isolates to break down the larger proteins so the body has better access to the building supplies it needs for rapid muscle growth. BONUS: Our body produces glutathione (an antioxidant that is not readily absorbed as a supplement) and whey isolate boosts our body's glutathione production!
