Product description Syntha-6 EDGE (1020-1080 gr)
Whey Concentrate is the least processed form (70-80% protein by weight) of Whey Protein which makes it the cheapest to manufacture. That is likely why BSN has chosen to include it in Syntha 6 Edge, as there are no actual advantages of Whey Concentrate compared to Whey Isolate other than a lower cost on the manufacturing side.
Whey Isolate is defined as at least 90% protein by weight. This gives it an obvious advantage over less pure forms of protein such as Concentrate, but due to the further processing that is required to produce Isolate it tends to be more expensive. This would exaplin why there is more Concentrate than Isolate in Syntha 6 Edge.
Hydrolyzed Whey Concentrate
Hydrolyzed Whey Concentrate is Whey that has been processed further than ordinary Whey Isolate and is broken down into peptides and free amino acids which reduces particle size. In a sense, Hydrolysis is like partial digestion and offers the quickest amino acid spike. This makes it ideal for post-workout supplementation.
Micellar Casein is the most slowly digested of the all the forms found in Syntha 6 Edge. Although it is often sold as an individual product, research indicates that combining Casein and Whey creates a more sustained anabolic effect which is ultimately what has prompted brands like BSN to create protein blends such as Syntha 6 Edge, rather than simply choose one form over another.
The Bottom Line
Syntha 6 Edge provides a complete range of slow-to-fast digesting proteins, making it one of the more versatile protein supplements out there. There does not appear to be any amino-spiking or other red flags which would indicate subpar quality so we’d consider it a fine option, though not necessarily special compared to most other protein blends.
