adding milk to whey protein

Adding milk to Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) OR Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) increase the protein, carb, fat, lactose content. It increase the test in both cases ( WPC / WPI) but it damages the basic needs. Sodium level also increase and not good for Lactose Intolerant people.

Adding milk means adding carbs, saturated fats and calories too. We should keep that in mind. But it tests awesome while taking with milk.


If you are lactose intolerant avoid milk. If not adding milk will not be any harm. Otherwise taking with water is a good option
