Whey Protein Blends

What is a whey protein blend?

All whey protein is a by-product of cheese manufacturing.

There are three types of whey protein: whey protein concentrate (WPC), whey protein isolate (WPI) and whey protein hydrolysate (WPH).

If you're interested in learning more about how whey protein is produced, please refer to the FAQ.

A whey protein blend is usually a combination of WPC and WPI. Some supplements also have WPH included and it's not uncommon to see added BCAAs, glutamine and digestive enzymes added, too. Whey blends are best utilised post-workout by athletes who have just undertaken strenuous exercise. Using them generously throughout the day could be an option if you're trying to gain lean muscle on a low carb diet, but to stretch digestion rates there are better ways to spend your money. Whey concentrate in itself is a fast digesting protein. Isolates and hydrolysates are even purer, faster and more expensive, hence there's probably little point in flooding your body in short bursts even if it is ultra-rich bio-available protein. One of the advantages of a whey blend is that by mixing isolates and hydrolysates with a concentrate it reduces the price marginally. It also still retains the benefits of ultra fast proteins as well as slightly increasing the rate of delivery.

It's debatable as to whether the added benefit from isolates and hydrolysates is really worth the extra money. There is a substantial price difference between these and a concentrate, which is already a fast digesting protein.

Would a whey protein blend suit me?

Providing the recipient isn't allergic to milk or lactose intolerant, a whey blend would suit any sports enthusiast.

The bottom line

A whey blend is an ideal post-workout protein, but due to its price it is wasted if consumed liberally throughout the day. We would instead recommend a whey concentrate or a mixed blend protein. If money is no option then there's no reason you shouldn't use it like a whey concentrate.
