In this article, we will try to highlight a relevant topic – industrial whey protein , which is used for the production of sports nutrition , is of high quality and low cost (almost 2-3 times cheaper than commonly available protein concentrates).
As a reference, it is worth noting that almost all of the protein on the shelves of sports nutrition stores is made from this food raw material (the raw protein in question). In cheap raw protein, flavors, dyes, preservatives, fillers and other substances are not added that do not affect the effectiveness of the product, but are added to the store, packaged in cans and it goes to store shelves at a price 2-3 times higher, with the same quality.
This topic may be of interest to those people who do not want to pay for taste, beautiful packaging and advertising.
Is this an advertisement?
In connection with the received complaint from the reader, we make comments: this article does not contain advertising. Milei, Hilmar and others listed are the largest food manufacturers in the world that do not need hidden advertising, it’s like promoting the Coca-Cola company on your contact page. In addition, these manufacturers do not even have official distributors in Russia, in other words, they do not supply their products to our country. You can help the project by adding product descriptions from other manufacturers.
Whey concentrate is Lacprodan® . The largest concern with factories around the world: Denmark, Argentina, Switzerland, Norway.
ARLA also produces whey isolates , and unlike other manufacturers, hydrolysates . Hydrolyzate – partially “decomposed” (by hydrolysis) into its constituents whey protein. The most technologically complex whey protein product , and the most expensive – several times more expensive than concentrates. The advantage of the hydrolyzate is its absorption rate. The assimilation time depends on the degree of hydrolysis, in ARLA products it ranges from 6-10% to 30%.
Taste reviews for Lacprodan® raw concentrate are predominantly favorable.
ARLA products are packed in 15 and 20 kg bags.

Plant: JSC “Shchuchinsky MSZ” (Belarus)
Factory website: schuchin-cheese.by
Chemical properties per 100 gr. Protein – 80% Water (102 ° C) – max. 5.0% Fat – max. 10% Carbohydrates (lactose) – max. 2%
Taste: milky neutral
In 2009, JSC Shchuchinskiy MSZ mastered the production of whey protein concentrate with a mass fraction of 80%. The bacteriological content of the product does not exceed 10 thousand KOE / cm3.
On the negative side, the following composition is very grainy, unlike all European proteins, which indicates poorer digestibility. The color, unlike all European proteins, is very yellow, which indicates a high fat content. Underweight in factory bags 100-400g.
Whey protein concentrate is produced by drying whey concentrate obtained by ultrafiltration. The concentrate is packed in 15 kg paper bags with liner bags, stored at a temperature from 0 to 25 C and a relative humidity of no more than 85%. The shelf life of the concentrate under the specified storage conditions is 413 days from the date of manufacture.
The retail price for Shchuchin protein is 7,500 rubles per 15 kilograms (one bag).
Protein quality is also confirmed by international ISO certificates
Almost all sports nutrition firms that are produced in Russia use this particular protein.
The low price is due to the fact that Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan have a free trade zone, and such taxes are not paid as on imports from other countries.
But if the prices for the euro were equal to the ruble, then the price of the Belarusian KSB would not be so low and perhaps even lose to European factories in price.
Also recently started production of whey protein concentrate and Buchatsky cheese factory (Ukraine). Protein concentrate with a mass fraction of 70%.
Energy value (caloric content) 100 g of product: 383.5 kcal. Nutritional value of 100 g of product: fats – 3.5 g, proteins – 70 g, carbohydrates – 18 g. The concentrate is supplied in dense paper bags with cellophane liners of 7 kg and 8 kg, at a price of $ 80 per 8 kg (retail price of Buchatsky KSB as of 01.06.2014)
The shelf life of the concentrate is 8 months from the date of manufacture at a temperature from 0 to 18 degrees, and a relative humidity of not more than 80%.
These products are not yet available in sports nutrition stores, but raw, cheap protein is starting to be actively sold by individuals. It is obvious that in the near future it will become more popular due to the constant rise in prices for protein concentrates. Raw protein is a smart way to save money for people who aren’t willing to pay for packaging and flavor.
This product is used in the same way as standard protein . To enhance the taste, you can make your own cocktails using fruits, sugar, milk and other ingredients.

- Murray Goulburn Micellar Casein – MPC 85 (Australia)
Producer: Murray Goulburn (Australia)
Composition: 80% Micellar casein 20% Whey protein / Micellar casein is a form of casein that is produced from milk by gentle micro-, ultra-filtration methods without the use of acids and heating, which allows you to preserve the natural structure of the protein. Otherwise, regular casein (calcium caseinate) is partially denatured. Slowest form of protein. Micellar casein entering the digestive tract is aggregated into the so-called micelles, thus the access area of digestive enzymes is limited, consequently the duration of digestion increases. As can be seen in the figure, a micelle is a conglomerate of casein molecules, the charged parts of which are directed outward, since they are hydrophilic, and the uncharged (hydrophobic) ones inward. Micellar casein has a high percentage of positive reviews, as most of the innovative products generate strong interest from athletes. Also, according to reviews, it rarely causes digestive upset Differs in better taste and solubility Not sticky, which is its hallmark Gentle cleaning and preservation of all nutrients, in contrast to sodium and calcium caseinate, which are also called Casein and with 90% protein content.
