With added amino matrix and digestive enzyme blend, Scitec Nutrition 100% Whey Professional is an excellent choice of protein for muscle building, anti-catabolism and speeding recovery.
Q.2 What are Whey Protein Isolates?
Whey Protein Isolate has a higher percentage of proteins which rounds to almost 80-90%. Higher concentration of protein is the result of the processing it undergoes i.e. either Cross flow Micro-filtration and Ion- Exchange. These processes help to separate protein from lactose, fats, ash and minerals. Of both these processes, Cross flow Micro-filtration is superior filtration process as compared to Ion Exchange as it keeps the whey microfractions intact. Whey Isolate has minimum amount of lactose, fats, ash and minerals in comparison to Whey Protein Concentrates. Whey Protein Isolate is a fast acting protein and the body digests it within 30 minutes of consumption. This property to digest fast helps to repair damaged muscle tissue and aids in faster recovery. As Whey Isolates have much lower amount of lactose than Whey concentrates, it becomes a great choice for lactose sensitive individuals.
Q.3 What is Whey Protein Concentrate?
Whey protein concentrate is one of the most popular and cost-effective forms of whey protein. It has between 34% and 80% protein depending upon the extent of filtration and end use. As protein percentage increases, the lactose percentage proportionately decreases.

Q.6 Will Scitec Nutrition 100% Whey Professional cause weight gain?
Whey protein helps in muscle gain by repairing the torn muscle tissue and increasing its size (hypertrophy). Thus the weight gain seen will be in form of muscle gain and not fat gain. Increased muscle mass will lead to increase in BMR and therefore increase fat burning as well.
Q.7 Since Scitec Nutrition 100% Whey Professional is protein powder do I still need it if I eat chicken, fish on a daily basis?
Although protein requirement can be met through whole foods, sports nutrition demands emphasis on certain meals viz. pre-workout/post-workout for optimum muscle gain. Since the body is not equipped to handle whole foods during these crucial periods, whey based protein supplements are an ideal per-workout or post-workout meals. Also, if there is a long gap between waking time and breakfast, then taking whey protein immediately upon rising can help arrest catabolism and kick-start muscle anabolism. It is the protein powder category of supplements that makes sports nutrition possible for the average fitness enthusiast and competitive athlete.
