Ultra Amino 97 Whey Isolate

Ultra Amino 97 Whey Isolate

Overall Rating 4.17 out of 5
2 reviews

The world's PUREST whey protein. What do we exactly mean by pure? Well you cannot have 100 grams of powder that is 100 grams of protein. For example our Micro Pure 90 whey isolate is 90% protein. Our whey concentrate is 80% protein. Most of the protein powders on the retail shelf are only 75% protein. This ULTRA AMINO 97 is 97% protein. INCREDIBLE! The highest on the planet!

Our purest, natural, ultra-grade whey protein isolate 97 from an ion-exchange manufacturing process. A patented USA made product. Ultra 97 contains the highest amount of amino acids and BCAA’s of any whey protein product on the planet. Ultra 97 contains a higher level of the amino acid leucine which has been shown to support maintenance and aid in building lean muscle.

Manufactured from fresh, sweet dairy whey, using a gentle, proprietary ion-exchange process the proteins are separated on the basis of their electrical charge. This results in a highly purified and isolated source of undenatured whey proteins. Typical protein content of Ultra Amino 97 is 97-98% on a dry basis. The extraction works by controlling the electrical charge on the proteins using chemical reagents. The electrical charge on the proteins attaches them to resins in the reaction vessel. The product contains the proteins beta-lactoglobumin and alpha-lactalbumin. It is instantized and mixes very easily with a spoon. It is also fat and lactose free.

Key Benefits

  • Undenatured Protein
  • Excellent source of essential amino acids and branched chain amino acids (20 – 23 g per 100 g of protein)
  • High metabolic efficiency: Biological value (BV of 100) and Protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) of 1.0
  • Low non-protein nitrogen components, negligible amounts of fat and lactose

Ultra Amino 97’s Ion Exchange Process vs. Other Whey Isolate
Are Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolates nutritionally superior to Ion-Exchange Whey Protein Isolates?
No. Ultra Amino 97 provides 93 – 95 g of protein / 100 g of powder. Other Whey Protein Isolates provide only 89 – 93 g of protein per 100 g of powder. Ultra Amino 97 contains only “true” intact proteins. Ultra Amino 97 also has less than 5% non protein nitrogen (NPN). Other Whey Protein Isolate may have up to 20% NPN components.

Does Ion-Exchange denature whey proteins?
No. Whey proteins are acid soluble. Denatured proteins are acid insoluble. Ultra Amino 97 has high solubility over a wide pH range. Testing methods for denaturation are not standardized.

Does Ion-Exchange Whey Protein Isolate contain lower amounts of Immunoglobulins (Ig) and Lactoferrin(LF) than Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate?
No. Protein profiles vary by manufacturer. In Ultra Amino 97, Igs make up 2 – 3 % of the protein and LF makes up 0.05-0.2% of the protein. Some microfiltered isolates have lower amounts of Ig and LF than Ultra Amino 97.

Do the Ion-Exchange and Microfiltration processes use the same chemicals?
Yes. Processing aids (acids and alkali) are commonly used in many food manufacturing processes. Ion-Exchange is similar to a gentle home water softening system. Ultra Amino 97 can be labeled as a “natural” ingredient.

Is Ion-Exchange WPI lower in GMP (Glycomacropeptide) than Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate?
Yes. The biological effects of GMP, such as satiety (suppression of gastric secretions), inhibition of bacterial and viral adhesion, and promotion of bifidobacterial growth require high purity. Whey protein contains 15-20% Glycomacropeptide (GMP), which is a casein derived peptide. Ultra Amino 97 contains less than 1%. GMP contents of other Whey Protein Isolates are not high enough to provide efficacy.

Is Ion-Exchange Whey Protein Isolate more allergenic than Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate?
No. B-lactoglobulin is the main allergenic protein in whey, though all of the whey proteins can be allergenic. All WPIs contain large amounts of B-lactoglobulin. All Whey Protein Isolates will cause allergenicity regardless of how they are manufactured. B-lactoglobulin is a nutritionally important protein that is a rich source of BCAA’s.

Athletic and Nutritional Information
Ultra Amino 97 whey isolate is excellent for any athlete wishing to try an alternative to whey concentrate. One should use Ultra Amino 97 when seeking a protein for optimum nutrition. If one experiences bloating and other digestive problems, then Ultra Amino is a good choice. This protein mixes very easily with a spoon and probably is the best tasting protein in ProteinFactory.com's® selection.

Ultra Amino 97 is our gold standard whey protein! The optimum whey we carry!
