First of all, you need to know what whey protein is?

Whey Protein is a product made from converting milk into cheese, providing the highest quality protein (also known as protein) compared to conventional foods.

Whey helps the body absorb and digest protein quickly and replenishes the amino acid chains for maximum muscle maintenance and development. Besides, Whey also helps fight muscle loss and improves muscle recovery after exercise.

How many types of Whey Protein are there, and how to choose them?

Currently, there are 4 main types of Whey Protein on the market, with advantages and disadvantages and different prices to meet each person’s diverse needs. As follows:

1. Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC)

This type of whey is the least undergoing treatment, so WPC also contains many impurities such as lactose, fat, and protein content of about 85-90%.


  • The lowest price compared to other types is suitable for those who do not have abundant economic conditions.
  • It contains many beneficial microorganisms.


  • Not for everyone because WPC also contains lactose. More specifically, those who often have colic when drinking milk (lactose allergy) should not use this type because it easily causes diarrhea.
  • High in fat may not be suitable for some people.
  • Protein is lower than other types.
  • Its ability to absorb into the body is slower.

Objects of use

I often choose to buy products of The Protein Works because of its unique taste for those looking for whey that is economically priced and not lactose allergy-free. The packaging is also beautiful!

2. Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)

This is a more preeminent protein than WPC because more steps are filtered to remove impurities, completely free of lactose. The fat and carbs content is also shallow, only retaining the protein.

Therefore, WPI is considered a purer and “cleaner” Whey Protein – worthy of being the preferred type of Whey Protein by many people.


  • It contains high-quality pure protein.
  • High protein content (90-95%)
  • The ability to absorb into the body quickly, easy to digest
  • It does not contain lactose, suitable for all users – Especially suitable for people who often have problems related to the digestive tract, stomach such as abdominal pain, diarrhea when using milk, stomach pain, …
  • Low in fat and carbs suitable for dieters


  • The price is relatively high (price comes with quality)
  • The process of filtering impurities also filters out some beneficial microorganisms.

Objects of use

You are economical, want to use pure whey with high protein content, and gain muscle fast. Whey Isolate is really suitable for everyone, especially for people with a lactose allergy.

IsoFlex contains up to 27g of top purity Protein.

Also, if you’re a vegetarian, there’s no reason to skip the Organic Protein line.

Besides, if you are on a weight loss diet and want to use high-quality pure whey Isolate, you can choose a sugar-free, fat-free, lactose-free, and non-starch-free type of WPI.

The 90-tuned product line is a cheap product for students. Not only cheap but also good.

3. Whey Protein Hydrolyzed (WPH)

This is a type of protein also known as Whey Peptides – the most carefully processed and filtered protein (completely removing impurities, hydrolyzed to separate protein macromolecules into smaller supermolecules to carry to the highest level of protein)


  • It contains the purest protein content
  • Highest protein content (more than 95%)
  • Absorbs into the body fastest (due to the maximum chopped protein molecules)
  • It does not contain lactose, suitable for all users – especially suitable for those who often have problems related to the digestive tract, stomach such as abdominal pain, diarrhea when using milk, stomach pain, …
  • Low in fat and carbs suitable for dieters


  • In addition to the highest cost due to the purest quality and unrivaled high protein content, almost no other disadvantage of WPH has been found.

Objects to use:

4. Whey Protein Blend

As its name implies, Whey Protein Blend is the most popular mixed whey and used by most brothers and sisters today.

This is the combination of 2-3 ingredients of Whey Protein, Whey Concentrate, and Whey Isolate or Whey Concentrate and Whey Hydrolyzed. For example, when you read the ingredients on a product, you see on a label that says 80% Whey Isolate + 20% Whey Concentrate, this is Whey Protein Blend.

Since it is a blend, the price will vary depending on whether the product contains more Whey Isolate, Whey Hydrolyzed, or Whey Concentrate.

However, it is obvious to choose products containing more Whey Isolate or Whey Hydrolyzed than Whey Concentrate to buy when it comes to quality.

To see the product’s ingredients, you can read more information printed on the label yourself.

At the ingredient label, which ingredient comes first is the main ingredient. For example, in the following picture, if the product states that Protein Blend (Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Whey Isolate is the main ingredient contained in the product.

  • Diverse products, many price segments are easy to choose from
  • Bring all the advantages of the Whey Blend (especially the whey with a higher percentage)
  • Suitable for people with lactose allergy if Whey Blend contains Whey Isolate and Whey Hydrolyzed

Best Tasting Whey Protein is an “unmatched” whey blend.

Amount of product used.

Digging deeper and deeper, when choosing Whey Protein, in addition to seeing which WHEY PROTEIN SOURCE product belongs to (as analyzed above), PROTEIN ISSUE is also an important factor that should not be ignored.

To know this content, you need to read the ingredient parameters on the label, but to specify how many scoops 1 SERVING (1 DOSAGE) is (how many grams)

Bellyfatzone makes a table comparing the protein content between the following 4 products for you to understand. To provide accurate figures, two parameters we need to consider are:

  • 1 serving contains how many grams
  • The amount of protein will be generalized per 30 grams of product for homogenization

From that can be seen: If you do not read carefully, many people will incorrectly identify NitroTech’s protein level as the highest up to 30g, much higher than Prostar 100% Whey Protein (25g).

This is the mistake that many people make when choosing whey without looking at the amount of protein/dosage.

Therefore, for an exact comparison, it is necessary to refer to the same number of grams. In my example, 30 grams

From the above comparison table, we get the following results:
