whey protein/lactose


New Member
Starting to find that drinking more a cup or so of milk doesn't seem to agree with my stomach (no big deal, just enough that I figure I might get a test for lactose intolerance some time next year). Haven't been drinking whey shakes for a while (been loads of really tasty fish and meat in season, and was too temped by that to bother replacing my last tub when it ran out

Anyway, buying some more whey now. Trying to decide whether it's worth going for the isolate (cause of reduced lactose) - or is the lactose level in the concentrate (c. 80% protein) likely to be low enough not to be an issue. iirc, someone posted a paper on why even concentrate is too low in lactose to be an issue for most people, but can't remember what or where... btw, whey would just be for a scoops before and after training.
30grams of WPC80 will provide around 1.5grams of lactose. IF you get a response from a product containing that level of lactose, its proabbly not the lactose that is causing the issue.
ah, thanks - my maths sees to be getting worse
Anyway, drank 100ml of milk w/ no ill effects (don't normally just drink milk) so, as you say, if the WPC causes problems at least I know it's not lactose that's the issue ;)
