Best Value WHEY Isolate and Concentrate mix

Hi, I haven't been on here for a while but I'm looking to stock up on a good quality whey Isolate and Concentrate mix and wanted your opinion on the best value and quality product.

Any of the bulk suppliers are good to go. Check the offers thread.

I'm using GONutrition whey isolate at the moment and I'm really happy with it.

They all do these blends now.
 
Really its a case of whos doing an offer on the day. GN do the Pro 5 blend but that has slower proteins as well. You just want Isolate and WPC?
 
MP do a deluxe blend I think its called. Im sure they all have their own versions.

they all pretty much use the same dairies IIRC but the main difference is how much they pad it out with anything other than whey... flavouring, emulsifiers, anti foaming agents, soy/pea protein.
 
Bulk whey suppliers are pretty much all the same for whey, you're splitting hairs and you will making choices purely on subjective criteria such as taste followed by operational topics such and cost of postage and packaging.
 
One whey supplier might be £27 for 2kg but charges £2.99 postage
One whey supplier might be £26 for 2kg but charges £3.99 for postage

Why would you want isolate and concentrate? If you want a concentrate, that's going to be around 75-80% protein. If you want an isolate, that's going to be around 90-95%. Not sure on what the benefits would be of hitting specifically 85% protein rather than going for a straight WPC80 or WPI90 etc. 
 
I can see the benefits of mixing Whey / Casein isolate's and concentrates etc. but not the 2 in whey, I know ON claim this but tbh it's only 80% on the label which is the same as our bulk whey (or any other sponsors).

Just a note in terms of some of the WPI / WPC blends... you're often paying out significantly more for these blends than a straight WPC80, and it's often not too different to buying a 90 or 95... personally I don't see the point, it may be called "ultra special XXX blend", but if you're priority is decent protein at a decent price, get the WPC80, if your priority is the leanest protein possible (and the rest of your diet is in check), get a decent 95.
 
That would be how I'd go imo.

I know there's something in having casein & isolate in a blend, aswell as a staged-release using casein, whey & egg for example, but I've not seen or heard of anyone touting the benefits for a whey blend other than being able to charge top dollar.

In a nutshell I am looking for a protein powder that has good vitamin and BCAA profile and releases protein some quickly and some throughout the day.

A straight whey protein will have a good bcaa profile. Or a blend of whey/casein for slower release. Re the vitamins maybe just get a vit/min tablet.

Exactly. Why do you want Vitamins in your whey?
 
Its like going to butcher and saying I want chicken with added Vitamins. Take a vitamin tablet there everywhere these days.

Meal replacement powders have them but also have a lot less protein.
