What is Whey Protein Isolate?
Whey Protein Isolate 90 is our highest quality whey protein powder and provides 23g of protein per 25g serving. This whey protein isolate powder is 90% protein and extremely low in fat and carbohydrates, with only 0.17g of carbs and 0.25g of fat per serving, making it ideal for those looking to lose fat and develop a more toned physique. It's a purer, higher end whey protein than our standard whey protein concentrate product GN Whey Protein 80, which contains more fat and carbs than isolate.
What's so special about your whey protein isolate?
Whey Protein Isolate 90™ is one of the the highest quality whey's on the market today and is blended, packed and sealed for freshness in our state of the art production facility. This is what's known as an un-denatured whey protein isolate, so the protein within hasn't been damaged by heat and can be readily used by the body. It's a traceable product from free range, grass fed cows and is made from vegetarian sweet cheese. It's packed with all 20 essential and non-essential amino acids required by the body. It is also very low in lactose, with just 0.2g per serving, making it a better choice if you are lactose intolerant.
How will whey protein isolate benefit my training?
Protein is important in our diet because our muscle cells use it for growth and repair. If you want to recover faster from training and build your muscles up, you need to consume plenty of protein, but that's much more difficult to achieve without protein powders. GN Whey Isolate 90™ contains a massive 22g of protein in each 25g serving, so 2-5 shakes a day can give you all the protein you need to get the results you want. It's packed with beneficial Branched Chain Amino Acids (or BCAAs) and glutamic acid, which rapidly reach the muscles and are used to encourage muscle growth and recovery. Our bodies are able to utilise a great deal more of the protein in whey than other protein sources, so it gets absorbed faster. This means it's great for taking before and after your workout, or as your first meal of the day.
How should I use GN Whey Isolate 90™?
To help grow muscle and aid recovery after training it's recommended that you consume at least 1g of protein for every pound of your body weight. The average person therefore needs to consume about 2-5 servings of GN Whey Isolate 90™ every day. This product makes a smooth, creamy protein shake when a 25g scoop is added to water (or milk if you prefer) and shaken in our GN Blender Bottle. If you want a stronger or weaker flavour, you can simply add more or less water - anywhere between 150-200ml of water usually produces the perfect taste.
What's in this protein powder?
Whey Isolate 90 is made from high quality whey protein isolate powder and a tiny quantity (0.4%) soy lecithin, which is added to help the protein mix well with water to produce your protein shake. The unflavoured version contains nothing else, but the flavoured ones also contain a natural flavouring, some natural colouring and a little calorie-free Sucralose sweetener to make it tastier. These flavourings, colouring and sweetener make up 3-6% of the volume, depending on the flavour chosen.
What flavours are available?
Whey Protein Isolate is currently available in 11 flavours, with more being added all the time. We currently offer: Unflavoured, Blueberry Cheesecake, Jammie Biscuit, Key Lime Pie, Maple Syrup and Pancake, Rhubarb and Custard Sweets, Strawberries and Whipped Cream, Sweet Banana, Triple Chocolate, Turkish Delight and Vanilla Ice Cream. The Maple Syrup and Pancake is a particularly popular one with customers. All can be mixed with water or milk to make a smooth, creamy protein shake.
How does it differ from whey protein concentrate?
Whey protein isolate is a much purer product which is harder to produce, which is why it's a little more expensive to buy. Unlike the cheaper whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate goes through an extra filtration process to remove fats and carbs to result in a much purer protein containing just 0.17g of carbs and 0.25g of fat per serving. By comparison, whey protein concentrate contains 19.5g of protein per 25g serving, plus 1.2g of carbs and 1.45g of fat.
What goes well with GN Whey Isolate 90?
Adding 5g of Creatine Monohydrate to your post workout GN Whey Isolate shake can help to improve lean muscle gains, size and strength. BCAA+ are also another great option to provide vital amino acids when looking to limit your carbohydrate intake.
