Question Whey protein isolate vs Wheat protein isolate?

Does anyone know the difference between whey protein isolate and wheat protein isolate? Or if there is a difference. I've seen both in various recipes.

Thanks!

WHEAT protein isolate is made out of wheat. I believe it is pure gluten, which can be a problem for some people with gluten-sensitivity. It seems to be a good ingredient when making low-carb bread products.

WHEY protein isolate is made out of milk. It is all whey, not casein, though if you have a casein (milk) allergy, you may want to avoid it. It is usually used for protein shakes or sometimes it is added to baked goods.

Dont know much about Wheat Protein Isolate but I can say Whey Protein Isolate is the best out there far as protein supplementation goes. Whey protein is the most efficiently metabolized and is the choice of serious athletes. There are variations of these supplements, they are isolates, concentrates and blends. Isolates are the purist form and are the most expensive. People choose one form over the other for different reasons, price and tolerability are two of the most common reasons that I know of. The purer the form of protein, the less likely an occurrence of stomach upset, bloat and gas for some people.

I have lactose intolerance and haven't had any issues with whey protein isolate. I just never put two and two together as to why.

Glad I was able to clarify that for you.
Im fortunate enough to not have to deal with lactose intolerance but Whey Isolate is my go to protein powder.

I've not heard of the isolate form of whey, but I know I had to throw away a big carton of whey powder because of intolerance. I now use egg white powder for my smoothies and shakes. I'll keep my eye open for a sample of it to try.

I use whey protein isolate for shakes and puddings. A caution about price. It can vary from place to place. I used to buy it in the health food store and then found it in the grocery store for 1/3 of the price. Granted the health food store's was organic but everything else was the same. In fact the grocery store one had fewer carbs. As far as taste I couldn't tell the difference so from now on I'll get it at the grocery
