Q. Is all Soy Protein Isolate the same, regardless of which brand it is?
A. As with so many things in life, if you don't ask the right questions, you won't get the right answers! The quality of protein can vary significantly and therefore the protein content will do too. In addition, just because a product may be called Soy Protein Isolate it doesn't mean that it only contains soy protein isolate. We recommend you read the ingredients and nutritionals on the label to better understand exactly what you are buying. We can assure you that our Soy Protein 90 is purely soy protein isolate. At TPW™, we are committed to transparency and openness in all our products and that is why we provide a Product Profile, Protein Insight and Product Testing on this product.
Q. How can I tell if the protein I use is a good quality protein?
A. Key signs to look for are the level of protein declared on the label. Look for soy protein isolate with a minimum 90% content.
Q. What does "dry basis" and "as-is" mean when talking about protein content?
A. When you see a protein powder that states on the label the protein is given as "dry basis " this means that the moisture present in the powder is included in the total protein value. Moisture in dry protein powders are typically around 4%. However, when a protein supplement is stated "as-is" this means the actual protein content of the powder with the water content excluded. In other words, the true protein you will be consuming. As protein prices have increased significantly over recent years due to the large demand in the sports nutrition sector, some brands may not give you all the facts in regards to the true level of protein in their products. At TPW™, we believe in transparency to give you the utmost confidence when choosing your whey protein supplements. On all our protein products you will see both the as-is and dry-basis values declared. Once again, it's all about knowing what to look for.
