Whey-26 is a source of protein derived exclusively from Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) and provides one of the highest percentages of protein per serving, minimal carbohydrates and no fat.
In addition, the product is Lactose-free, very low in sodium and no cholesterol. Common to many whey products, Whey Protein Isolate is produced by removing Sweet Whey from cheese curd, then subjected to methods that remove the remaining cheese “fines”, pasteurized, and the fat content is removed by centrifugal separation.
Following this pretreatment, the fluid raw material may then be processed into Whey Protein Isolate using one of two methods: Ion Exchange (IE), which is followed by concentration and spray drying, is a process very similar to that used for the production of “soft” water. Microfiltration followed by Ultrafiltration (MF/UF), and is then spray dried, incorporates a pressure driven membrane filtration which is comprised of two “molecular sieves”.
This process removes differing components in various steps and is then concentrated to achieve the desired product. The two methods differ in production in the composition of the proteins found in the respective forms of Whey Protein Isolate. However, when compared to the MF/UF method, the IE method results in the loss of significant certain protein fractions.
For this reason, Vitalabs’ Whey-26 uses Whey Protein Isolate produced only by MF/UF methods. WPI offers an effective means of supplementing the diet with a source of protein that has an excellent Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER) and Biological Value (BV) available.
And, due to the natural bland taste of WPI, it offers a very good tasting, versatile form of protein that may be used to create an endless number of protein shakes and smoothies.
Each 30 gram serving of Whey-26 provides 26 grams of Protein, only 1 gram of Carbohydrates, No Lactose, No Fat and No Cholesterol.
Whey-26 is available in three great tasting flavors, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry, with some new exciting flavors in the works.
Whey-26 is naturally sweetened with Stevia and uses flavor systems guaranteed to be free of MSG and other Exitotoxins.
