Are BP Pure Whey and MP Impact Whey the same?

About buy a 5kg bag of whey and have just noticed that BP Pure Whey states that it is grass fed while Impact Whey does not?
 
Always thought they used the same supplier?

    Yep either green or dried (as hay) plus 'feed'. There are very few differences between most bulk selling basic wheys. I'm not sure about the same supplier mind.

    No it's not.  Most cows are fed on grain.  It's cheaper but causes issues with the omega 3 content of the fat (both in the meat and dairy produce).

    Won't have anything to do with the whey though (as far as I know).  I'd go for the cheapest.

    I don't know the foodstuff of the cows used to produce Myprotein's whey but I will make enquiries.
     
    Considering the amount of fats in whey are relatively small (c7% w/w - it maybe lower due to the lecithin ), and the amount of CLA and unsaturated fats are quite small anyhow.  The difference will be quite negligible either way IMO, and would be dwarfed by the natural fluctuations in fat content in milks). 
     
    If one wants to get more O3 in their diet, just consume a quality fish oil.  Job done.

    If they are claiming "Grass fed" then this should mean that the livestock is fed purely on grass and not any cereals.
    Food derived from grass fed livestock has healthier fats than cereal fed .
    Personally I opt for grass fed if it is available. 
    It would be prudent to ask for certification.

    I have just checked the price, if it is actually grass fed then they have done well to source it cheap enough to offer it at that price.
    I would trust B.P. as they have an excellent history for customer service.

    Hormone free, grass fed cows produce better quality milk hence why it's more expensive

    I think it is more to do with pesticides and chemical fertilisers, some people are more sensitive to these than others.
    Personally I cant justify the high prices of organic foods. 
    But I do opt for unprocessed/undamaged fats and grass fed dairy if I can.

    More important to look at the amino profile.

    And even then. The small (they are, after all, measured in milligrans) differences will not make a big difference.
