Listen to Alex Rogers, President of Protein Factory talk about ion-exchange whey isolate.
What is ion exchange whey protein isolate?
Ion exchange whey protein isolate is an instantized whey protein isolate is manufactured from fresh, sweet dairy whey that is concentrated and spray dried. Less than 1.5% sunflower lecithin is added to the process to aid in product dispersibility and solubility. Ion exchange is lactose-free based on US regulatory labeling of sugars and carbohydrates in products that contain less that 0.5g per serving as “0g” or “Sugar Free’”.
Why Does It Matter?
Ion-exchange whey protein isolate is the ORIGINAL patented whey protein isolate. The powder maintains the highest amount of protein per gram with an outstanding protein percentage of 97 to 98%. Ion-exchange whey isolate is known as the “cleanest” form of whey protein isolate, with a higher leucine count over micro/ultra filtration whey protein isolate. If one is looking for the most amino acids, and the most BCAA’s, ion exchange is the answer.
Ion exchange whey protein isolate is an instantized whey protein isolate is a unique, natural, and pure dairy protein comprised of beta-lactaglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, and minor whey proteins found commonly in whey. Ion exchange whey protein isolate replaces larger quantities of other functional ingredients providing improved flavor and mix efficiency.
