Whey Protein Concentrate
At Popeye’s Supplements we offer a wide variety of Whey Protein Concentrates, all unique in their own way so you are sure to find the right one for you!
What is it?
Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) is made by removing the non-protein components from whey. It is less purified than Whey Isolate. In comparison to Whey Protein Isolate that is on average 90% protein by weight, Whey Protein Concentrate is between 70-90% which results in more carbohydrates, fats and lactose. WPC is a great option for those looking for a cost friendly supplement who do not mind the increased calories and lactose.
Some benefits of whey protein concentrate:
- High Protein Content: Like whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate is a good source of protein, which can help support muscle growth and repair.
- Affordable: Whey protein concentrate is typically less expensive than whey protein isolate, making it a more budget-friendly option.
- Supports Muscle Growth and Repair: Whey protein concentrate contains all the essential amino acids that your body needs to build and repair muscle.
- Boosts Immune System: Whey protein concentrate is a good source of immunoglobulins, which play a role in boosting the immune system.
- Convenient: Whey protein concentrate is readily available and easy to use, making it a convenient option for individuals who are looking to increase their protein intake.
- Supports Weight Management: Consuming whey protein concentrate can help support weight management by reducing hunger and increasing feelings of fullness.
- Versatile: Whey protein concentrate can be added to a variety of foods and drinks, making it a versatile option for those looking to increase their protein intake.
