Whey protein isolate is obtained by concentration and purification of Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) to reduce the content of fat and carbohydrate in whey. The process can be conducted with the use of membrane separation or ion exchange. WPI is considered a product of the highest purity and concentration of protein.
WPI consists of at least 85% of protein and little lactose (less than 1%) – which can be a huge advantage for people with lactose intolerance. Moreover, the product has low residual sodium content and low lipid rates. Despite the purification process, WPI still retains high levels of calcium and amino acids.
Whey Protein Isolate is a commonly used component of sport nutrition products including beverages, snack bars, and clear sports drinks. It is also used in dietary goods due to very low levels of fat. Furthermore, its high amino acid content makes it a perfect ingredient for baby foods. Other applications for Whey Protein Isolate include the general production of deserts, creams, yogurts, puddings, soups, dry mixes, sauces, confectionery products, ice creams, meats, and sausages.
