Your $84.99 Gold Isolate might not be so Gold afterall.
Every time that you shop for canadian protein, the first thing you probably do, is look at the labels and the nutrition facts. You rely on that information in order to compare products. To compare value, you will want to calculate the protein content. To do so, you will divide the amount of protein by the serving size ie. (27g protein / 30g serving size x100 = 90% which is what a good Whey Isolate should be). Then you compare one product to another and make a decision. The problem with that approach is most of the time, information provided by manufacturers is misleading. Let me help you uncover the truth.
Often the ingredient list is extensive and contains a lot more than just whey protein isolate. Flavor, Gum, Enzymes, Sucralose, Soy Lecithin and Lactose Reducing Preparation are some of them. Also note the amount of fat and carbohydrates on the label in addition to sodium, calcium and cholesterol. Take the amount of protein and add the amount of fat and carbohydrates. Fro example 27 grams protein plus 1 gram of fat and 1 gram of carbohydrates. This leaves only 1g for all the other ingredients which doesn’t add up when the label is a laundry list of Other Ingredients. In other words, it’s impossible to have a 30 gram serving size with 27 grams of protein unless there are only a very few added ingredients such as flavor and a sweetener. If the label has more “other” ingredients listed, you should be skeptical about the protein percentage claimed. There could be a lot of soy lecithin in the mix and/or whey protein concentrate. Did you expect it in your expensive Gold Whey Protein Isolate? Certainly not.
The third concern I have is that the mix contains Lactose Reducing Preparation. Whey Protein isolate and hydrolysate do not contain any lactose (carbohydrates). Why would you need Lactose Reducing Preparation in your whey protein isolate? I simply don’t get this one.
Lastly, why would a high quality whey protein isolate and hydrolysate (Predigested) need digestive enzymes in its formula? Quality Protein Isolates don’t require enzymes to be digested. Only low quality protein concentrates and soy proteins need enzymes to be digested.
Don’t we have enough clues to conclude that we are misled by the manufacturer’s label and we don’t get what we are promised by the label?
At Proteinco.ca, what you see on the label is what you really get. We don’t add fillers and other unnecessary ingredients to our whey protein powders. There is no fat, no lactose, no cholesterol and no lactase (Enzyme that aids in the breakdown of lactose) in our $69.99 ProteinCo Whey Protein Isolate. TIP: The price is lower when you purchase multiple unit containers!

The below label is for a competitor’s product and makes a lot of sense and is credible. It also reinforces our allegations about the above misleading label. In other words, you are most likely not getting the promised 90% protein with any Whey Protein Isolate that has a label similar to the one above.
