Whey Protein Isolate For Superior Gains

With the vast amount of protein supplements on the market, it’s hard to know which ones are of the best quality and worth your hard-earned cash. Unfortunately, many protein supplements are blended with inferior sources of protein, such as low quality whey protein concentrate, to increase total protein while also cheating you out of maximum gains. Ideally, for whey protein to help promote muscle growth and strength, it should be digested to the peptide level (di- and tri-peptides) within 90 minutes to be used by the body.*

Inferior sources of protein, gram for gram, are as not as pure as whey isolates. Whey protein isolate not only serves up more quality protein per scoop to ignite muscle protein synthesis, it’s also lower in unwanted lactose, fat, and carbohydrates than cheaper protein sources. It’s typically more expensive to manufacture, due to the advanced methods of processing it undergoes.

Whey protein isolate is commonly processed two ways: ion exchange or micro/ultrafiltration. To the unknowing buyer, you may think you’re getting a high-quality whey protein but these two methods are not equal. The ion exchange process, used by many leading brands, selectively depletes several critical tiny molecules known as subfractions, which ultimately results in the denaturing (damaging) of the protein.

The whey protein in MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate has been filtered using the most advanced cross flow micro- and ultrafiltration technology to minimize fat, cholesterol, lactose and other impurities, for an ultrapure, non-denatured isolate protein. The result is a superior quality, rapid absorbing whey isolate that yields the perfect amino acid profile to fuel your body’s anabolic machinery.*

Why Choose Micropure Whey Protein Isolate?

Each scoop of MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate contains 25 grams of the highest quality and most bioavailable protein available. This ultra-premium whey protein isolate formula has an advanced, full-spectrum amino acid profile that includes EAAs, BCAAs, CAAs and NAAs, to support dramatic increases in protein synthesis for maximum muscle gains.* Each scoop of MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate delivers:

Essential Amino Acids (EAAs)
Total Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)
Conditionally Essential Amino Acids (CAAs)
Non-Essentital Amino Acids (NAAs)

The Prohydrolase® Advantage

Kaged Muscle researchers invested countless hours working to create a protein formula more powerful than regular whey protein isolate. Infused with ProHydrolase® technology, the advanced MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate formula enhances protein absorption.

Each serving is supercharged with a precise 250 milligrams of ProHydrolase, an innovative patented digestive (proteolytic) enzyme blend clinically shown to be more effective for maximizing protein digestion than whey protein on its own. Using this exclusive blend of enzymes the whey protein is rapidly hydrolyzed (broken down) in real-time, upon consumption, rather than during the manufacturing process using harsh chemicals. The result is a superior whey protein isolate formula, scientifically honed to help maximize digestion and absorption of its powerful muscle-building amino acids.*

Whey protein is a source of all nine essential amino acids.[1] To effectively promote muscle growth and strength, the protein must first be broken down into smaller, more usable protein fractions (i.e., di- and tri-peptides)[2] rapidly after consumption.[3] When whey protein is not broken down into its smallest fractions (common with cheaper, inferior sources of protein such as whey protein concentrate), the larger peptides are not properly absorbed, causing gastrointestinal discomfort such as bloating, gas, cramping. ProHydrolase is scientifically proven to maximize the benefits of whey protein, promoting better digestion, and absorption.

ProHydrolase rapidly breaks down the whey protein isolate into highly bioavailable micro fractions, allowing your body more easily absorb the protein and take full advantage of the available essential amino acids for building muscle and maximizing recovery. With more amino acids hitting your bloodstream, the greater the protein synthesis response to accelerate your gains.*

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate?

Whey protein concentrate has only 80% protein and a higher amount of impurities, such as lactose and ash, which can cause bloating and gas. If you are lactose-intolerant, you’ll want to steer clear of products that use whey protein concentrate. Whey protein isolate, on the other hand, has 90% protein. Whey protein isolate goes through an advanced filtration process to reduce the amount of lactose, fat, and carbohydrates, ultimately yielding a purer, cleaner form of protein.

How does MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate compare to Hydrolyzed Whey Protein?

The difference between traditional forms of hydrolyzed whey protein and MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate is that our protein is hydrolyzed in real-time, at the time of consumption, thanks to the innovative ProHydrolase Enzyme Technology. Proteins hydrolyzed during the manufacturing process are chemically treated to breakdown the protein into its smaller amino acid components, and the resulting material is then dried and packaged for your consumption.

Because MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate is rapidly hydrolyzed in real-time, we recommend you consume it within 15-20 minutes of mixing, or the product will start to taste bitter like hydrolyzed whey protein.

What should I look for on the label to identify a quality whey protein isolate?

Many brands use fancy buzzwords on their labels to disguise low-quality protein sources contained within their products. If you want a high-quality whey protein powder, make sure whey protein isolate is the only source of protein listed in the ingredients. If the first or second ingredient is whey protein concentrate, then it’s time for a new protein powder.

Can I use MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate if I am lactose intolerant?

A typical serving of MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate has less than 0.1 grams of lactose. The National Institute of Health’s position is that most individuals with lactose intolerance can safely consume this trace amount of lactose with no discomfort. But you should consult with your healthcare provider before consuming MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate if you are lactose intolerant or sensitive to any of its ingredients.

Why does MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate have sunflower lecithin?

The trace amount of sunflower lecithin found in MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate is used to help the protein dissolve more readily when mixed with liquid.

What is the difference between Re-Kaged and MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate?

Re-Kaged is a post-workout recovery protein that offers 28 grams of ultra-premium whey protein isolate per serving, along with an additional 3 grams of glutamine, 1.5 grams of the BetaPower (Natural Betaine) and 1.5 grams of the Creatine HCI, to support your recovery needs.* The MICROPURE Whey Protein Isolate offers 25 grams of ultra-premium whey protein isolate per serving and can be taken any time of the day.

Mixes well but it leaves an after taste. Something about it makes it bitter. I probably wouldn’t buy again

Very deceptive to call this Ultra Clean yet to include Sucralose. Artificial sweeteners is not Ultra Clean

The chocolate flavour is awful! I tried it with milk and it tasted so bad I had visions of going through life not being able to taste anything correctly after drinking this. I tried it with water and the taste improved, but there is a relatively strong artificial sweetener taste. The ISO protein itself is third-party tested, so I’m inclined to believe it’s a really good product. But if I can’t bring myself to drink it, or reluctantly do, then I can’t really recommend it. Shame too, I had high hopes after reading so many good things about it.

I am not sure how this is getting such a high rating. It tastes like crap. The only redeeming factor is it mixes well or it would have gotten lower than a 3

I just started taking this protein and all I can comment on is the flavor so far. I purchased the chocolate and the artificial sweetener flavor comes across much stronger in this brand than in others I've tried. I'm quite sensitive to the "after-taste" of any of the artificial sweeteners whether it be Sucralose or another type. It's not an awful flavor and doable to drink, but just a tad sweeter than I'd prefer.

It's the first time I purchased the product great taste for vanilla but i noticed some piece of small plastic inside the protein container and while mixing the protein I'm not sure that traces of plastic came from the cover.

First time using whey isolate and so far have used 4-5 tubs of the Kaged isolate chocolate brand. Taste is good to me, not sweet. Mixes well with water, no "clumps". I use it post workout and daily on non workout days and my assessment is that I don't get any soreness or aches in my muscles. I really like the fact that it is artificial flavor free and third party tested. My doctor has recommended I get more protein in my diet and this product gets 25 grams per scoop.

This is awesome! I had my first shake last night after lifting. This tastes like mocha, I could swear there is a hint of chocolate in it. It is SO more-ish! I've been waiting so long for a coffee-flavoured protein to appear since MT discontinued theirs a few years back, and Kaged Muscle came to the rescue. I still haven't met the KM product I don't like. Awesome job, guys!

Great for anyone serious about putting on natural size. Tastes great especially if you on a low sugar diet. Doesn’t sit heavy on the stomach like other whey I’ve tried. Mixes really well in a shaker.
