Is there a difference between WPC (Whey Protein Concentrate) and WPI (Whey Protein Isolate)?
A processed whey protein product generally falls in one or two categories: Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) or Whey Protein Isolate (WPI). WPC has been recognized for sometime now as having the highest biological value (BV) of any food protein. This means, gram for gram of protein, it has the greatest potential to repair and build tissue. WPI are processed from WPC, allowing individual protein fractions to be included or excluded from the product. This process usually reduces the fat and lactose content by 1-2%.
