WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN R1 WHEY BLEND AND R1 PROTEIN?
R1 Whey Blend is an excellent choice for most athletes. It offers a great combination of taste, value, and nutrition by blending ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate with more premium whey protein isolates and whey hydrolysates. The slightly higher fat and carbohydrate content of the R1 Whey Blend contribute to richer flavor and creamier texture than nutritionally cleaner formulas like R1 Protein. Our flagship, R1 Protein, is made entirely with whey protein isolate and hydrolysates (no whey concentrates). As a result, it is virtually devoid of anything macronutrients that are not protein. If you are on an ultra-strict diet, or advanced athlete that demands the very best, R1 Protein is a perfect option.
