Soy Protein concentrate vs isolate?

#1 Postby C.O. » Mon Oct 29, 2012 8:01 pm

Soy protein isolate is in just about every processed fake meat alternative that comes in a box. Most of us already know its not a healthy choice. I just came across soy protein concentrate. Have any of you seen this labeling? It was on a cereal sold at Trader Joes. Google isn't doing me justice right now. Please reply if you know the difference, or if you know if there is a difference.

Thanks,

-Dylan

When you isolate something, you concentrate it as well. So I think they are the same thing.

There is definitely a difference. Wiki has a good breakdown between the two:

There are still some concerns about the processing of concentrates/isolates, so make up your own mind about that.

Thanks for the link FH.

Yes you are right, protein isolate and concentrate are not the same.
