Overview

Here’s another product from widely recognised brand – MYPROTEIN. It is known for producing affordable yet good quality products. It is produced from suitable for vegetarians sweet cheese, sourced, according to MYPROTEIN, from world’s leading whey protein manufacturers.

Impact Whey Isolate with its 90% protein content is a magnificent source of proteins. Whey Isolates are widely known for their high biological value, higher than of any other proteins available. Whey Isolates also deliver high levels of essential and non-essential amino acids. The very high content of proteins, and virtually no fat and carbohydrates, has been achieved by cross-flow micro-filtration. It removes most of unwanted carbos and fats and secures high biological value of proteins.

Proteins fractions available in this product are: beta lactoglobulin – 47%, glycomacropeptide 27%, alpha lactalbumin – 17%, bovine serum albumin – 1.5%, immunoglobulin G – 2% and lactoferrin -0.5%.

 

Similarly to other MYPROTEIN products, this one also comes in bags, what helps maintaining price as low as possible. The product comes in several different flavours: apple&raspberry, banana, blackcurrant, chocolate smooth, orange & passion fruit, raspberry, strawberry cream and unflavoured. Unflavoured is also the cheapest option and has the highest protein content. Due to addition of cocoa, chocolate flavour has protein content reduced by 8%. Other flavours have proteins content reduced by approximately 3% comparing to the unflavoured product. Bit of a down side, but can be used as a kind of dessert. Most flavours are available in 1kg/2lb, 2.5kg/5lb and 5kg/11lbs. Unflavoured is available in 1kg and 2.5kg and 4kg/9lbs pouches.
