The Private-Label manufacturer Biohealth uses high quality whey proteins for their sports nutrition products. The consumption of whey proteins is recommended when it comes to supplying the body with sufficient proteins after sport. Whey proteins are known for their quick availability in the body and their high level of essential amino acids. These benefits make them the perfect proteins during intense physical activities such as bodybuilding or endurance training. A proper supply with protein components is important in order to accelerate protein synthesis and support muscle gaining processes in the body.
Whey and whey proteins are byproducts from the manufacture of cheese. Whey contains valuable proteins, which optimally supplement the diet of athletes. As a private label manufacturer, Biohealth utilizes whey proteins that include whey protein isolate (WPI) and whey protein concentrate (WPC). Both have different effects in the body and can thus be used for different purposes.
The difference between WPI and WPC
Whey protein isolate (WPI) consists of protein chains and peptides; it is digested and metabolized rapidly in the body. It also supports the quick transportation of the proteins through the body to the muscles. This means that with the intake of whey protein isolate after physical exercise, balance can quickly be restored in order to supply the muscles sufficiently.
Whey protein concentrate also contains lactose and lipids, which are completely removed in the production of whey protein isolates by filtration.
WPC and WPI products could be also ultrafiltrated and obtained by Cross Flow Microfiltration (CFM). What does this mean? Cold-processed proteins are defined as proteins obtained by CFM. The benefit: This process does not require any use of chemicals.
Whey proteins processed with this method are among the purest and highest quality proteins. The production process makes use of cross flow filtration technology with ultrafine filters. In this way the amino acids are maintained.
Whey production: Ultrafiltration and microfiltration
The CFM method is a simple filtration process that used various filters. They provide for mechanical exclusion of particles of certain sizes. In the production process of whey protein concentrate or whey protein isolate, all components that are larger than the ultrafine openings in the filter will remain in the liquid whey.
Apart from whey proteins, Biohealth also uses milk proteins, casein and vegetable proteins in its sports nutrition products. Depending on the training goal, proteins are used which allow for either a fast or a slower absorption in the body. They can be used as a whey-only product or as a protein mix in Biohealth’s protein shakes, protein powders or recovery products.
For example, Biohealth has developed Pure Whey; it consists of a pure whey protein isolate, it contains only 0.2 g of fat per serving and is very low in carbohydrates. 25 g of proteins and more than 5 g of BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) in every serving contribute to muscle maintenance and an increase in muscle mass.
Good to know: Problems with poorly dissolved protein powder are now a thing of the past, as the experts at Biohealth have perfected the solubility features of protein shakes. Our Whey Protein scores with perfect solubility without lumping, powder residues or foaming. Simply add water or milk, shake and enjoy.
