Buy Whey Protein Concentrate - All you need to know!

Whey Protein Concentrate, sometimes simply called "Whey", is a high quality dietary protein food source

arousing curiosity and interest in athletes and those that look after their health.

At HSN, we tell you everything you need to know!

Table of contents

What is whey protein concentrate?

WPC (Whey Protein Concentrate) is a product of whey (one of the protein fractions naturally present in cow's milk).

It comes as an instant powder, ready to mix in liquid (usually water, juice or milk).

And it's used to increase the amount of protein ingested through the diet in a convenient and tasty way.

What does whey protein concentrate do?

Whey Protein Concentrate is a food supplement with a very high content of

high quality protein. It's protein content is used to:

maintenance muscle mass


upkeep of bones


growth muscle mass


That's why it's the most widely consumed and perhaps most sought-after product by sportsmen and women.

What does whey concentrate do?

WPC is an excellent and complete source of proteins. Complete because it contains the 9 essential amino acids.

Proteins are structures that are used for multiple purposes in the body, and increasing the consumption of proteins contributes to the maintenance and gain of muscle mass.

Differences between concentrated, isolated and hydrolysed, which to choose?

All come from the same source, whey.

The differences lie in their treatment; the order in which they are obtained is:

Concentrated→ Isolated→ Hydrolysed.

Centrifuged whey is ultrafiltered to obtain Concentrate (WPC), the concentrate is microfiltered to obtain Isolate (WPI), the isolate is hydrolysed to obtain Hydrolysed Isolate (WPH).

You can choose any of them. The main differentiating characteristics are the fat and carbohydrate content (including lactose). The following comparison table can help differentiate them:

Types of Whey Concentrate

Today, concentrated whey proteins are almost entirely produced by mechanical filtration (ultrafiltration) through ceramic membranes with 0.2mcm pores.

There are different types of whey protein concentrate depending on the membrane material used, the size of the filtration pore, and the volume:concentration ratio.

Whey protein concentrates intended for food supplementation always have the same characteristics, with a protein content of more than 65%. They are distinguished by:

Native concentrated proteins are those obtained directly from milk; while "classic" concentrated proteins are obtained from the product (whey) of milk treatment in a cheese factory.

Native proteins undergo one less treatment process ("skipping a step"), which allows us to obtain a raw material with a lower degree of acidity, less heat exposure and greater control of the treatment pH.

Where does whey protein concentrate come from?

From cow milk.


This is destined, after its pasteurisation, for cheese production, which applies a curdling agent and drainage to separate the whey from the casein.

Treatment plant

The whey is packaged and destined for a specific treatment plant.


There it is centrifuged and/or filtered to remove traces of caseins and other unwanted compounds.


The treated whey is ultrafiltered in ceramic plates as "porous membranes" to obtain WPC, this process is known as ultrafiltration.


It is then dried, normally by atomisation, mixed with additives (flavours, sweeteners, emulsifiers, etc.) and packed.

When should I take protein concentrate? When is the best time?

when take protein concentrate

You can consume it at any time of day thanks to its great versatility. Although there is an ideal moment:


For decades, whey protein concentrate has been the preferred choice for fitness enthusiasts as a source of post-training protein.

A growing body of research indicates that the use of protein before and/or after training is recommended to contribute to the maintenance and development of muscle mass.

WPC, thanks to its maximum value in several factors of nutritional quality (as its Biological Value) is an excellent source of post-training protein.

How many times a day should you consume whey protein?

Whenever you need it.

There's no limit to the recommended number of times per day, but it will depend on the protein composition of your diet, your body characteristics (weight, % fat), and your goals.

If you eat a lot of meat, fish, eggs and dairy products in your diet, one shake a day may be enough.

If you don't eat much protein from other foods, you can use 3 shakes a day:







Recommended quantity of whey protein concentrate

There is no standard quantity.

Normally, it is recommended to use a level filled scoop (~30g/serving) to minimise gastrointestinal discomfort, as higher protein intakes can cause flatulence and mild digestive discomfort.

The total daily protein concentrate that can be used has not been established and possibly does not exist.

Use as much protein as you need to cover your requirements.

Frequent questions about WPC

Whey Protein Concentrate is the most recognised source of protein. Have any doubts? That's normal!

At HSN, we can answer all your questions.

No, except for allergies and/or intolerances.

A person who is allergic to milk or very lactose intolerant may experience adverse effects, as you would with the consumption of any dairy product. If you are allergic to milk, avoid using WPC.

Sometimes slight digestive problems can be experienced at the beginning of consumption, mainly determined by the lack of adaptation of the gastrointestinal system to digest large amounts of protein in one go. These are minor complaints and disappear quickly.


Ultrafiltration is a process that filters whey with insufficient porosity to remove lactose.

A lactose-free whey has to be isolated, normally hydrolysed isolate.

It depends.

Pregnancy is a very variable physiological state among women, therefore, although in principle there are no specific contraindications to the use of Whey Protein Concentrate during pregnancy, it is important to consult the doctor monitoring the pregnancy to ensure the absence of risks in that particular case.

Yes, unless they have a condition that limits the amount of dietary protein they can consume, in which case they should consult a Dietitian-Nutritionist.

In fact, in healthy elderly people, WPC is a highly recommended food preparation as it contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass, which is normally reduced with age and the loss of which is a risk factor in the elderly.


Getting fat is a process that depends on the amount of calories consumed over several weeks/months.

Protein concentrate is a food preparation that can be used as a substitute for other protein sources with more fat and carbohydrates, in the context of a varied diet, and it provides all the essential nutrients, which is why it's a great option even for definition.

A serving (30g) of protein concentrate contains only 126kcal.

Protein doesn't make you fat, excess calories do.

Approximately 3 hours.

After 3 hours from consumption of the shake, the amino acids concentrations in the blood are significantly reduced, a sign of the end of the refractory period of protein consumption indicating that it is time for another intake.


The recommended amount of protein intake in Europe is 50g a day according to Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011.

A WPC serving provides 25g of protein, meaning one shake covers 50% of the daily protein requirements.

However, this has been highly questioned, as athletes and other heavy users have higher requirements.

Currently, the recommended is 1.62g of protein/kg/day to optimise protein synthesis. So an adult of 70kg would need around 113g per day.

A shake in this case would cover about 22% of the daily recommended amount.
