all the whey
I was looking at buying protein for the first time from allthewhey.com. They have great prices. I know that the isolate is a much purer form of whey protein than the blend of isolate and concentrate. Does it make that much of a difference if i use the blend over the isolate. It is a $30 difference for the 10 lb. i'll probably go with the isolate, but i just wanted to check with you guys

Your better off with the blend.

The only time it makes a BIG difference is for people who get gaseous and upset stomach from whey concentrate. The whey isolate is much gentler on the tummy. If that is not a problem for you get whatever. That being said primaforce substance WPI tastes soo good that I get it everytime, not because it is isolate...Dim

Isolate has more protein per serving than concentrate. For instance, isolate may have anywhere from 90 to 96 percent of protein depending on filtration method. Concentrate on the other hand is usually below 80 percent and can go as low as 40 percent or so. This means your getting more protein per serving with the isolate as opposed to the concentrate. Isolates are lactose free as well as fat free and carb free where concentrates are not. If you don't have any problem with lactose than concentrate will be fine. You'll be saving yourself lots of money that way seeing that it's about half the price of isolates.
