Animal CLEAR Whey Isolate Launched in Three Flavors

Animal Clear Whey Isolate

Animal Clear Whey Isolate has been announced, and is here in three flavors: Blueberry Acai, Pineapple Orange, and Watermelon Lemonade!

Exactly one year ago, we had Animal‘s Jason Budsock on PricePlow Podcast Episode #080 to catch up, reminisce about The Cage at the Arnold, and tease us some new products coming from the legendary brand.

Those items are all covered below, but we’re proud to announce the one product mentioned in that podcast that hadn’t come out yet… until now:

Animal Clear Whey Isolate Revealed!

Animal Clear Whey Nutrition Facts

Animal Clear Whey Isolate Ingredients

  • Protein: 20g

  • Total Carbohydrates: 1g

  • Total Fat: 0g

As you can see, Animal Clear Whey Isolate is very clean. This isn’t uncommon for clear proteins. Let’s take a look at why that’s the case:

The Animal Clear Whey Isolate Main Ingredient

The primary ingredient here — and only protein source — is hydrolyzed whey protein isolate. Most readers are likely familiar with whey protein, which comes from cow’s milk, and is available in various grades. Alongside a healthy diet and exercise program, whey protein is well-studied in terms of both body composition improvements (gain muscle while still losing fat) as well as strength — and in both men and women.[1-4]

Animal Clear Whey Isolate: One Pager

Once whey protein has been purified and filtered enough, it can be classified as whey protein concentrate (ranging from 34-80% protein by weight), or it can get taken a step further with whey protein isolate (WPI). With WPI, the filtration (or isolation) gets the material to a point of 90% protein by weight or more.

Hydrolyzed whey protein isolate: easier to digest, faster to absorb

Hydrolyzed whey protein isolate takes it yet another step — the addition of enzymes to the WPI help to break the protein chains down into shorter and smaller ones, which are faster-digesting and easier to absorb![5] And it still has a full amino acid profile like whey protein isolate.

This leads to a protein powder that can get the essential amino acids into the bloodstream quicker, leading to a faster reload of glycogen stores[6] as well as a faster insulin response.[7] For hard-training athletes – especially those who train more than once per day, it can drive faster recovery,[8] helping with return bouts.

This is where Animal takes advantage of the situation – they’ve sourced a hydrolyzed whey protein isolate that’s so well-refined, it settles “clear” (or translucently, as we like to say). This enables very creative flavors that are often fruity in nature — somewhere between a whey protein isolate and an amino acid / sports drink.

Animal Clear Whey Isolate Benefits

It’s sweetened with both sucralose and acesulfame potassium (“ace-k”), and can even be used during workouts like an amino acid drink. This is also perfect for those who are tired of thicker chocolate/vanilla style shakes, and want a “drink” more than a “shake”. Finally, note the natural colors used!
