One of the most sought after protein supplements sought out by bodybuilders is Whey Protein. Whey Protein is a complex ingredient extracted from cow's milk and filled with beneficial nutrients for human consumption. Whey contains protein vital for building muscle and cardiovascular activity. Advances in processing technology have made whey protein beneficial to all people given the medical benefits. Today's whey protein supplements manufactured for weightlifters, bodybuilders, athletes and health conscious consumers are micro-filtered, cold processed, and ion exchanged.
Goliath Labs, a New York State based Bodybuilding and Sports Nutrition Supplement Company recently announced the online availability of their 5 lb. bodybuilding protein supplement called Isolate. According to CEO and owner of Goliath Labs, Bart Panessa, “Bodybuilders, weightlifters, athletes and our regular Goliath customers will be happy now that they can buy our Cold Filtered Whey Isolate in 5lb. canisters. Perfect for those seeking to maximize their protein intake.”
Whey is very beneficial when manufactured for people involved in cardiovascular activity and bodybuilding. Whey comes from cow's milk and comprised of protein, lactose, fat and minerals. The protein in whey is most valued and the sports nutritional industry works to develop whey protein supplements with high amounts of protein that can be absorbed quickly and efficiently. Bodybuilders, athletes and people looking to build muscle are interested in advanced formulas with high nutritional content. One of the newest forms of whey supplements are manufactured by cross flow micro-filtered, cold processed ion-exchanged methods.
Whey has been studied for decades concluding a multitude of benefits. The medical benefits have led to consumption by the mainstream public. Whey's broad ability to help many systems in the body has made it a very popular product. In addition to helping athletes build muscle, whey protein helps to boost the immune system, reduce blood pressure, and increase serotonin levels in the brain. The benefits noted are just a few of the purported medical advantages of consuming whey products.
The types of whey protein and the best methods for processing them are widely debated. The most common form of whey is whey isolate because it is high in protein and lower in fat and lactose compared to whey protein concentrates. Although higher in fat and lactose, whey concentrates are still beneficial for the body. Whey protein isolates are suited to people looking for whey products less in fat. Although fats have been suggested benefits as well, athletes and bodybuilders want low fat whey isolates.
Whey protein isolates contain 90% protein and higher. The goal for manufacturers is to produce these products in a cool environment to ensure they maintain their immune boosting benefits. This is why cold processing is an important component. Cold processing enable manufacturers to remove lactose and fat without reducing the biological activity in whey required to benefit the body. Cold processing enables whey to remain in a denatured state vital for keeping biological activity active.
Whey protein is a huge component in nutritional supplements. The sports nutrition supplement industry compete to develop the highest-grade whey protein isolate for the consumer. Most would agree the need to process whey in cool temperatures for ensuring biological activity and keeping the medical benefits. Filtration methods vary with different goals in mind depending on the nutritional supplement company. Ion exchange methods are debated because the process produces a higher protein per gram supplement, but with lower levels of ingredients needed to have the medical benefits. The fact remains that whey is an excellent source of protein with many medical benefits. The sports nutrition and nutritional supplement industry will continue to develop innovative ways to take the numerous benefits of whey and harness them into more dietary and sports nutrition products.
