Frequently Asked Questions On Whey Protein Isolate
- What is Whey Protein Isolate?
Whey Protein Isolate is the superior form of Whey and a rich source of protein (90%). It is obtained when Whey Protein Concentrate undergoes an additional filtration process that leads to further reduction of fat and lactose. Whey Isolate has a great number of essential amino acids, with a negligible number of fats and lactose. The milk-derived protein is not just a dense source of pure protein but has many beneficial aspects that make it the best protein supplement. It has the highest biological value (159) among the protein sources and the highest BCAA concentration.
- What makes Whey Protein so special?
Whey Protein may seem as yet another protein source to some, but what makes it so special is its incredible amino acid count, particularly the BCAAs. Whey Protein is a well-absorbed protein that contains all the essential amino acids, hence termed as a complete protein. Compared to other protein sources, Whey Protein is highly bioavailable, which means it is completely absorbed, it has the highest biological value among protein sources. Due to its fast absorption, Whey Protein delivers faster amino acids that make it perfect as post-workout nutrition for muscle recovery and muscle growth.
- What is the difference between Whey Protein Concentrate & Whey Protein Isolate?
Both Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate are high-quality protein supplements derived from milk, the difference arises in the protein content due to the extra filtration technique. Due to the ultra-filtration which it goes through, Whey Isolate results to be a more refined and pure form of Whey Protein which contains almost no sugar, lactose, or fat. Whey Protein Concentrate is the economical protein option that typically contains 80% protein content and can contain lactose, fat, carbs, and minerals. Whey Protein Isolate is slightly expensive due to further processing which it goes through that removes virtually all the non-protein contents, it offers 90% protein content, with little to no fat or lactose. Whey Isolate is usually lower in bioactive compounds than Whey Concentrate. However, both supplements provide great results of muscle building when combined with resistance workouts.
- Is Whey Protein Isolate suitable for lactose intolerant?
Whey Protein Isolate is a fast-absorbing protein that offers a quick supply of essential amino acids to muscles to initiate faster muscle growth and repair. The highest level of purity and high concentration of protein in Whey Protein Isolate is achieved through a microfiltration process that filters out other components in Whey like fat, carbs, lactose, leaving behind pure protein. The ultra-filtered Whey Isolate digests easily and contains almost negligible lactose content, it may be suitable for lactose-intolerant.
- What is the best time to consume Whey Protein?
As our body is in a constant cycle of amino acid depletion, feeding them with protein anytime is certainly beneficial to maintain a balanced environment of muscle building. If you are pitched for an alternative breakfast, consume Whey Protein shake with milk to start your day. A Whey Protein shake when consumed an hour before a workout will provide the amino acids that prevent muscle breakdown, encourage new muscle building and help you perform at your full capacity. After an intense workout, your muscles are primed to absorb more amino than usual. Consuming Whey Protein shake post-workout will aid in quick recovery and boost muscle protein synthesis to help muscles grow bigger and stronger.
- Should I consume Whey Protein shake on rest days (on non-workout days)?
That’s a nice question. You can consume Whey Protein shake on your rest days too. One needs to understand here that a rest day for the body need not mean a rest day for the meal plan. On your rest days, your body will be recovering from your previous day’s hard workout and rebuilding new muscle. Adequate intake of protein on rest days will provide a constant supply of protein to help you take the edge off post-workout soreness, which leads to greater performance and results. Consuming Whey Protein shakes on rest days means there is good availability of the essential amino acids for the muscles to help them stay in an anabolic state, recover faster from exercise, helps preserve lean muscle mass and ignite fat loss.
- What are the features of your Whey Protein Isolate?
Whey Protein Isolate offers 90% protein with the highest quantity BCAAs per serving. The multiphase filtration technology which it goes through ensures high-quality and pure protein. Whey Protein Isolate is a fast-digesting protein with the highest biological value of 159. Whey Protein Isolate has superior digestibility which ensures quick delivery of amino acids to muscles, it mixes easily with water, is contains virtually no cholesterol and is fat- free. AS-IT-IS Whey Isolate is unflavoured, undenatured, does not contain additives, preservatives, it is 3rd party lab-tested for assurance on purity and potency. Our Whey Protein Isolate is a vegetarian protein supplement that is gluten-free, enzyme-free, sugar-free, yeast-free, fat-free, and is very low in carb content.
- Which one to choose among Whey Protein & a Mass Gainer?
Whey Protein as the name indicates is a protein supplement that helps to fill the protein gaps of a varied diet and Mass Gainer is a high-calorie supplement that helps you gain weight. The choice of the supplement always relies on your fitness goals. If you are a hard trainer who is expecting muscle gains, with a reduced-fat percentage, then go for a Whey supplement. If you are someone who’s finding it hard to gain weight easily and aim to build a significant amount of muscle mass, you can choose a Mass Gainer. If your goal is to have a lean physique, choose Whey and if your goal is to bulk up, then choose a Mass Gainer supplement. If you are aiming for endurance or quick recovery post-workout, Whey Protein is a suitable supplement for you. Mass Gainer is suitable only when you intend to gain weight.
- Should only bodybuilders consume Whey Protein?
Definitely not, everyone can consume Whey Protein irrespective of their workout routine. Some people are of the opinion that Whey Protein is often associated with workout-friendly supplements and bodybuilders are used to promote it. One needs to keep in mind that the Whey supplement is designed to fill the protein gaps of a varied diet. Protein need exists for all irrespective of gender, age, weight, and workout intensity. You must look at protein consumption from the fitness and health perspective. An individual is recommended to consume protein at the rate of 0.8g to 1g per Kg of bodyweight.
- How much Whey Protein should I consume in a day?
Our serving suggestion is 30g a day. Studies suggest that an ideal amount of protein is required by the body to repair the muscle damage following an intense workout and initiate muscle protein synthesis. The recommended dietary allowance of protein is 0.8g to 1g per Kg of body weight. This shouldn’t mean a person weighing 60Kg should consume 60g of Whey Protein a day. Most people get enough protein from a regular diet. If you are adding legumes, nuts, eggs, poultry, and seafood to your diet, you’ll already be getting a certain amount of protein from the diet. Whey Protein supplement is meant to fill the protein gaps of a varied diet, and aid in quick muscle recovery, it is meant to be consumed in moderation.
- How many days does your 500g and 1 Kg Whey Protein Isolate last?
AS-IT-IS 500g pack of Whey Protein Isolate lasts for 16 days when consumed 30g a day. 1Kg Whey Protein Isolate lasts for 33 days when consumed 30g a day.
- What is the expiry date of your Whey Protein Isolate? How to store it?
The product has a good shelf-life period. You need to check the packaging date mentioned on the backside of the Whey Protein pack and calculate its expiry date as 18 months from the date of packaging. You can store and use the Whey supplement in the zip-lock pouch in which it comes. Seal the zip-lock securely after every use, keep away from moisture contact or direct exposure to sunlight. If you prefer, you can transfer the Whey Protein into an airtight container and store it with the lid closed securely after every use. We advise you not to refrigerate Whey Protein.
- How to validate the authenticity of your Whey Protein supplement?
AS-IT-IS Whey Protein pack enables the user to check the originality of the pack even before you open the seal of the pack. Every pack of Whey comes with a unique QR CODE and the SCRATCH CODE that serves as valid proof to confirm the authenticity of the pack using the app.
AS-IT-IS Whey Protein undergoes third-party lab-testing for assurance on purity and potency.
- Why should we consume Whey Protein post-workout?
The timing of Whey Protein consumption plays an important variable in maximizing its effects. Whey Protein is ideal to consumed post-workout (30 minutes to one hour period) which is termed as the ‘anabolic window’. This is the time when your hard-worked muscles are most receptive to amino acids. Whey Protein provides a high concentration of protein with a higher concentration of BCAA than any other protein supplement. The fast-digesting Whey facilitates the release of a broad spectrum of amino acids to shift the body from a catabolic state (muscle breakdown) to an anabolic state (muscle building), aids in faster repair and rebuilding of muscles when consumed post-workout.
- Who should aim to supplement with Whey?
Whey Protein has unique nutritional and functional properties which can be explored by all to deliver high-quality protein, regardless of the fact whether or not you do the workout. Whey serves as the best protein source that delivers the highest protein per serving, it is especially beneficial for people on the go for whom it may not always be possible to get the protein through solid food or when you don’t have time to prepare protein meals. Those who do regular workouts, gym-goers, athletes, and sportspeople will need to fuel their muscles immediately post-workout and aim for faster muscle recovery and muscle growth. For them, Whey Protein serves as the most convenient and quick source of high-quality protein that can provide your body all the amino acids. Individuals who are on a low-calorie diet or weight loss journey can take the aid of the Whey Protein supplement, which promotes satiety, controls calorie intake, builds lean muscles, and helps you lose weight.
- I am taking Whey Isolate for a week, should I do a workout?
Doing workouts daily is definitely a good thing for your general fitness, but what we wish to convey is that protein supplementation need not be linked to/combined with a workout regime always. Those who don’t spend their days at the gym too can get the benefits of protein supplements. Whey Protein increases your energy levels, helps you meet your required protein intake, maintain a healthy weight, or lose weight.
- Which is better – Whey Protein Concentrate or Whey Protein Isolate?
Both Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate are complete sources of protein which contain building blocks of muscles, both the supplements effectively stimulate muscle protein synthesis, both are rapidly digesting protein source, both help to increase your protein intake and both have an impact on anabolic hormones. The difference between the two supplements comes down to the amount of protein they offer per serving, the number of carbohydrates and fats they contain and of course, the price variation that exists. When there are lots of pros to both of them, the better doesn’t exist, both are equally good.
- Why does Whey Protein Isolate cost more than Whey Protein Concentrate?
When it comes to protein supplements, the amount of protein they offer per serving and the amino acid profile of the protein powders make up the majority of the costs to the manufacturer. If you have noticed, the protein supplements are sold not just by weight but also by the percentage of protein they offer per serving. Whey Isolate goes through elaborate processing techniques in the processing plant, it is passed through microfilters to result in a purer, high concentration protein supplement which counts to 90% protein. In short, Whey Protein Isolate costs more than Whey Protein Concentrate because you get more protein per gram of the serving with the Whey Isolate package.
- Can I take Whey Protein with Creatine?
Yes. The combination of Whey Protein with Creatine is perfect for those who engage in short-burst, high-intensity workouts. Both the supplements when combined together combines the benefits of individual supplements and provide dynamic support to power your workouts and to produce greater muscle mass. Creatine produces phosphocreatine to create quick bursts of energy that increase stamina during workouts involving maximal effort muscle contractions like lifting heavyweights. Creatine enhances glycogen accumulation when combined with glycogen-depleting exercise. Creatine increases aerobic threshold due to greater shuttling of ATP from mitochondria. Whey Protein is a great combination of essential amino acids which help in repairing and remodeling muscle tissues after intense training sessions. You can consume 2.5g to 5g of Creatine before a workout and a scoop of Whey Protein following a workout.
- Should I consume Whey Protein with milk or water?
The choice of the fluid you choose to mix should depend on your personal fitness goals like whether you want to gain weight, lose weight, aiming for faster muscle recovery, or build lean muscles. Choosing among the two fluids will make a difference in your calorie intake and will impact on the rate of digestion of Whey. Choose to blend Whey Protein with water if you are looking for easy and faster mixing, if you are looking to consume Whey Protein post-workout, Whey digests faster with water and benefits faster onset of muscle recovery. When you consume a scoop of Whey Protein with water, you’ll get about 110 calories which is suitable for those who want to lose weight. Also drinking Whey with water is suitable for those with milk sensitivity. Choose to blend Whey Protein with milk if you want to add additional protein to your shake, if you consume Whey Protein at night or any other time of the day other than post-workout. A scoop of Whey Protein with a glass of milk offers 220 calories which is suitable for those who want to gain weight. Unflavoured Whey tastes neutral with water and tastes smooth and creamy with milk.
- Can women consume Whey Protein?
Definitely yes. There’s a misconception among women that consuming Whey will bulk them up and hence many women stay away from Whey. This should be ruled out. What one needs to understand here is that protein is required by everyone, regardless of men or women. Whey Protein is superior quality and convenient protein source that enables us to reach our daily protein needs. Whey Protein significantly reduces appetite, boosts metabolism, promotes fat burning, both for men and women. A mere intake of protein daily will not cause women to gain bulky bodies or huge biceps. Huge biceps or shoulders can be achieved through resistance training and testosterone (anabolic hormone). Women will not bulk up even if they lift heavy weights because women have a low level of testosterone. Whey Protein will in fact help women achieve a firmer body with lean muscles.
- Whey Protein Isolate is forming foam, is there a concern with the product?
Foaming is a common scenario with 100% Whey Protein which contains absolutely no fillers and is in pure form. Many commercial brands add anti-foaming agents like polydimethylsiloxanes or oil-based defoamers or even binding agents like polydimethylsiloxanes or oil-based defoamers, soy lecithin etc to make thick consistency shakes that will avoid foaming. Foam formation in Whey is attributable to aeration and brisk shaking. Preparing protein shake in a shaker bottle upon brisk shaking invites a lot of air bubbles and creates foam. When Whey Protein shakes are stirred vigorously, the amino bonds loosen, and the chain partly unwinds, as such the hydrophilic and hydrophobic ends get exposed. While the hydrophobic ends reach out for the air, the hydrophilic ends stay in the water, and then the proteins coagulate in a structure that holds onto air bubbles.
- How to avoid foam formation in Whey Protein shake?
Preparing a protein shake in a blender or a shaker may help to eliminate lumps and give you a smooth drink, but this method of brisk shaking will invite a lot of air bubbles which causes foam. There are a few techniques that you can follow to reduce/avoid foaming of Whey. Use normal glass to prepare protein shake, prepare your Whey shake before workout so that you give it the time for the foam to settle and by the time you are done with your workout, the foam would have disappeared. Mix the Whey protein powder little by little with water instead of all at once, use lukewarm water or milk which will reduce the surface tension and lead to a smooth foam-free protein shake.
- Can I combine Whey Protein and Micellar Casein?
Yes, you can combine Whey Protein and Micellar Casein. The varying rate of digestion and absorption of protein and their different biological effects make them beneficial to be used in combination. Whey Protein is a fast-digesting protein that rapidly releases amino acids that promote protein synthesis, it doesn’t have a significant role in the inhibition of protein breakdown. Micellar Casein doesn’t get digested but trickles the amino acids slowly over a longer period of roughly 6-8 hours into the bloodstream. Combining Whey Protein and Micellar Casein is more beneficial for protecting the existing lean muscle mass and potentially supporting muscle growth. The combination will fetch the amino acids to the muscles for several hours so as to keep muscle protein synthesis elevated for longer and promote greater muscle size and strength.
- I am afraid Whey Protein may make me gain weight, I don’t want to gain weight, what to do?
Whey Protein will cause weight gain is a ridiculous myth surrounding Whey. Weight gain is typically a matter of high-calorie intake, consuming a Whey Protein shake alone will not cause one to gain weight. A typical glass of Whey Protein shake with water will offer about 110-150 calories. In order for someone to gain weight, one has to be at a caloric surplus. If that is the case, you’ll gain weight only when you consume 4 scoops of Whey Protein (which is strictly not recommended) or when you consume it with other high-calorie diets. Whey Protein essentially helps increase your protein intake and your muscle mass which should majorly benefit weight loss, not weight gain.
- Can I consume Whey Protein with coffee?
Yes. Whey Protein is an excellent muscle stimulant and coffee is a mood stimulant. Combining Whey Protein with coffee will provide the stimulating, energizing properties of caffeine found in coffee with the nutritional value of protein. Drinking Whey Protein combined with coffee will help you stay alert and mentally prepared to tackle the physical, mental and psychological demands of working out. While the catabolic effect of coffee helps to release the stored energy, Whey Protein through its anabolic effect helps to restore and rebuild muscles. Coffee raises cortisol levels which are in a way beneficial before the workout to keep you motivated and ready to cope with the challenge.
- Does consuming Whey Protein cause damage to kidneys?
What you need to know is that any protein consumed in excess can cause damage to kidneys, Whey Protein is not to be highlighted here. There is no conclusive research evidence to show the side effect of Whey Protein on kidneys when consumed within the recommended allowance. The daily recommended dosage of protein for an individual is 0.8g to 1g per Kg of bodyweight. People who already have a kidney problem or a family history of kidney disease are advised to consult a medical practitioner before embarking on Whey supplementation. It’s not the Whey Protein that causes harm to kidneys, rather excessive protein shake (more than the individual requirement) for a long period may impose a risk to your kidneys.
- I am taking Whey Protein regularly, not getting muscle mass?
Whey Protein no doubt helps promote muscle mass when combined with resistance training. Some people are of the opinion that Whey Protein alone can help them reach muscle-building goals. This isn’t true. Consuming Whey Protein daily won’t help your build muscles, what makes you gain muscle is an exercise for muscle hypertrophy. Muscle hypertrophy training uses repetitions to stimulate muscle volume. Whey Protein provides your muscle cells a faster stream of amino acids which serve as building blocks to initiate muscle recovery, increase the release of anabolic hormones to facilitate muscle growth. Whey Protein alone cannot help you build muscle mass, with the right balance of protein and workout, you can aim for good muscle-building goals.
- Can Whey Protein help me lose weight?
Yes. Whey Protein regulates the hunger hormones, helps prevent excess hunger which is the prime cause for over-eating that may lead to obesity. The essential amino acids found in Whey Protein helps in maintaining muscle mass while losing body fat during weight loss. You must note here that Whey Protein will not magically cause you to lose weight. Unless you combine Whey Protein with a low-calorie diet and regular workout, you may not get effective results of weight loss.
- Can I combine BCAA with Whey Protein?
Yes, you can definitely combine Whey Protein with BCAA for the results of maximum muscle gains. Although Whey Protein is a relatively fast-digesting protein, BCAAs in Whey are bound to other amino acids through peptide bonds and it takes several hours for the amino acids to be broken down and absorbed into the bloodstream. BCAAs in BCAA supplements are not bound to other amino acids, they are in free form, require no digestion, so they are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, which makes them faster to impact protein synthesis. Combining BCAA with Whey Protein help to get leucine to the muscles as fast as possible to kick start muscle synthesis and then when the amino from Whey Protein show up after, they are put to use for actual muscle protein synthesis that leads to bigger muscle mass.
- Do I gain weight if I consume Whey Protein without doing a workout?
Not necessarily. You’ll gain weight when you are in a caloric surplus, meaning when you eat more calories than your body needs to maintain. Unflavoured Whey Protein usually ranges from 100-130 calories a scoop and contains a very low amount of carbs and fats. A typical Whey Protein shake prepared with water will not add extra calories. Consuming Whey Protein shakes with added ingredients like peanut butter, bananas, oats, and other ingredients not just enhance the taste of your shake, but may add to calories. When you do a workout, the excess calories will be burnt and protein will be used to repair muscle damage, and rebuild them. When you don’t do a workout, there won’t be any muscle damage for the protein to repair and rebuild, so any excess protein consumed will get stored as fat. Consuming Whey Protein in moderation with balanced calorie consumption will not cause weight gain if you don’t do a workout.
- How do I combine Whey Protein & Glutamine together?
The best time to take glutamine would be when glutamine stores are low within the body. This would mostly be after an intense workout. Whey Protein is ideal to be consumed during the anabolic window (within half an hour to one hour after your workout). This is the time when you can benefit more from Whey Protein as at this time your muscles are more receptive to amino acids.
- Is it fine to drink a Whey Protein shake on an empty stomach?
Either you choose to drink Whey Protein from a diet perspective (to cut down calorie intake and lose weight) or from a muscle health perspective, it’s perfectly fine to consume Whey Protein on an empty stomach. If you’re drinking Whey Protein shake on an empty stomach as your breakfast alternative, you may want to go beyond simply mixing protein powder with water. You may add other ingredients to Whey shake like oats, nuts, nut butter, quinoa, chia seeds, flax seeds, or some carb sources like bananas, berries. You if choose to consume Whey Protein on an empty stomach and do a workout, then Whey Protein shake is most beneficial to consume combined with sufficient carbs. This helps create muscle glycogen and preserve the protein needed to repair and rebuild muscles after exercise.
- Can I combine Glutamine with Whey Protein shake?
Definitely yes, combining Glutamine with Whey Protein is beneficial for athletes who workout in a carb-depleted state, bodybuilders, fitness enthusiasts who have an intention to increase muscle mass, reduce recovery time. Whey Protein with its excellent range of amino acids works toward muscle repair. Glutamine fights the fatigue induced by exercise and keeps the immune system healthy. Being a nitrogen compound, glutamine drives nitrogen to the muscles and creates a positive muscle-building environment. The combination of Whey Protein and Glutamine is helpful during cutting because when you do excessive cardio in a calorie-deficit state, your body will burn some muscles along with fat. The combination of Whey and glutamine helps to preserve the hard-earned muscles and to build new muscle tissue.
- Which one to choose – Whey Protein or Pea Protein, Which is better?
Choice of protein supplement is up to an individual’s dietary preferences. Both the protein supplements stand out in their own way and are extremely beneficial. Instead of trying to know which supplement is better, one needs to understand the differences between the supplement. Whey is a dairy protein, whereas Pea protein is derived from yellow split peas. Both differ in texture and taste, Whey tastes neutral, Pea Protein has an earthy, vegetative flavour with a chalky, gritty texture. Whey Protein is a fast-digesting protein, Pea Protein is not as fast-digesting as Whey. Whey Protein offers more protein and BCAA per serving than Pea Protein. Pea Protein can play a critical role in achieving protein intake for vegans, and for those with dairy/lactose intolerance or people with food allergies. Whey Protein may not be suitable for lactose intolerant, vegans. Both Whey & Pea Protein aid in muscle building, muscle recovery, and weight loss.
- Can I take Whey Protein before a workout?
Yes, a Whey Protein shake is no doubt beneficial when you take it pre-workout. Consuming Whey Protein before a workout will prevent muscle loss and promote good energy levels after your workout. Your resistance training will place a lot of stress on your muscles and trigger micro tears in muscles and switch your body into a catabolic state. The Whey Protein shake when consumed pre-workout will offer a good circulating pool of amino acids, which can encourage muscle protein synthesis and prevent muscle loss. Whey before a workout is especially beneficial when you workout on empty stomach or on a low-calorie diet. An ideal pre-workout protein shake should include carb along with protein. Carbs will give your body enough glycogen stores to fuel your workouts while Whey will prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue.
- Which one to choose – Soy Protein Isolate or Whey Protein Isolate?
When it comes to choosing between protein supplements, there’s no one size fits all approach. It may take some trial and error to determine which type of protein works best for you. Both Whey Protein Isolate and Soy Protein Isolate are the best quality complete protein supplement that helps to fulfill your protein requirements. Whey Protein is a fast-digesting protein that is ideal to be consumed post-workout to aid in quick recovery. Soy Protein has less potential than Whey for producing ammonia, which is the primary cause of muscle fatigue. Hence, Soy Protein is best to consume pre-workout. Whey Protein is not suitable for vegans, whereas, Soy Protein is suitable for vegans and lactose-intolerant. Both differ in texture, Whey has a creamy, milky texture, and Soy Protein has a nutty texture.
- Does Whey Protein consumption cause acne?
Whey has not been declared to be the definitive cause for acne by studies. There are several factors that contribute to acne, like genetics, skin bacteria, your immune system, your sensitivity to hormones. Some people who consume Whey with strength training workouts complain of acne issues. This doesn’t mean there’s a concern with Whey. What happens is, your strength training workout can boost your testosterone levels, increase your androgens and the activity of sebaceous glands. Androgens overstimulate your oil glands which can clog up your pores, thus creating a conducive environment for acne. Make sure you drink an ample amount of water while on supplementation with Whey Protein. This facilitates better absorption of Whey and lessens the occurrence of acne.
- Can I take Tribulus with Whey Protein? When to consume both?
Yes. Tribulus is a natural testosterone booster that promotes endurance, muscle growth, muscle repair, and muscle recovery. Tribulus helps increase circulation in muscles and reduces feelings of fatigue. It promotes increased retention of nitrogen and stimulates the synthesis of muscle growth. Tribulus boosts muscle power which allows you to lift heavier weights and do more repetitions in the gym. Whey Protein with its excellent amino acid profile helps boost muscle recovery and muscle protein synthesis. Consuming a combination of Whey Protein and Tribulus serves as a superior way to increase muscle composition and improve bodybuilding results. Tribulus is best when consumed pre-workout and Whey Protein is best when consumed post-workout during the anabolic window.
- Can I take arginine with Whey Protein? What is the benefit of this combination?
Definitely yes. Arginine in the body is converted into nitric oxide, which promotes vasodilation and opens blood vessels wider.
