Hydrotech Whey: a blend of whey and wheat protein

While people tend to track their calories, sugar and salt intake, the importance of consuming enough protein should not be overlooked. Protein plays a critical role in helping your body function optimally, as it assists with the growth and maintenance of muscles, tissues and cells.

Protein consists of 20 different amino acids. Often referred to as the building blocks of life, amino acids are the molecules that combine to create proteins. These molecules can be categorised according to non-essential or essential amino acids. Non-essential amino acids are produced by the body and do not have to be added to your diet, while essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body and must therefore be added to your diet. An excellent way to ensure that you consume enough proteins and amino acids is by adding wheat protein to your diet.

What is wheat protein?

Wheat protein is created by turning the gluten in protein―the main protein in wheat―into free amino acids.

The difference between wheat protein and whey protein

Both wheat protein and whey protein are rich in the amino acids the muscles need to flourish while exercising, but there is a distinct difference between the two. Wheat protein is a plant-based protein that is made from gluten in wheat. Whey protein is made from an animal source (i.e. the liquid portion of coagulated milk).

The benefits of wheat protein

It is no secret that proteins are beneficial to the human body, but what makes wheat protein so unique? Some of the benefits of adding wheat protein to your diet are:

  • A staged released protein: Wheat protein supplies the bloodstream with essential amino acids over an extended period, which is beneficial as the body needs fast and slow-digesting proteins to fuel recovery and muscle gains during different stages of the day and night.
  • Cost-effective: Wheat protein is an affordable alternative to whey protein―which has experienced significant price increases since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Read The “Why” and “When” of Protein Price Increases to learn more about the price hikes.
  • Helps with muscle growth: As protein is commonly known as the building blocks of muscles, a high protein intake can promote muscle mass gain and strength while simultaneously preventing muscle loss during weight loss.
  • Assists with post-workout recovery: When you exercise and do strength and resistance training, your muscles experience micro-tears. If you consume protein, your body uses the amino acids in the protein to repair the damaged muscles by surrounding and filling the tears and making them bigger and stronger.

Why add HydrotechWhey to your diet

Hydrotech Whey™ is a supreme blend of whey and wheat protein. It enhances the effect of training by ensuring that your muscles are fuelled over extended periods. Ultimately this provides you with the results that you are aiming for. Hydrotech Whey™ is specifically formulated with the following:

Protein matrix

The combination of whey protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate, whey protein concentrate, hydrolysed wheat protein, and wheat protein increases strength, muscle recovery and lean muscle tissue. The staged released protein matrix ensures that the body constantly receives the proteins it needs to build and repair torn muscles, tissues and cells.


This broad-acting enzyme complex consists of powerful enzymes―including protease, amylase, lipase, lactase and cellulase―that help with digestion and improve the absorption of nutrients.

Essential amino acids (EAA) and branched-chain amino acids (BCAA)

The protein in Hydrotech™ Whey absorbs faster than protein received through your diet. Because it does not have to be digested before the body recognises it, it helps with muscle recovery. The essential amino acids and branched-chain amino acids also help with muscle formation and muscle building.

B Vitamins

Hydrotech ™ Whey contains Vitamin B, which boosts the immune system and assists with converting food to energy.


Hydrotech™ Whey is an ideal protein blend for vegetarians due to the lactose digestive enzyme provided by DigeZyme.

Delicious flavours

This supreme blend of whey and wheat protein is available in three delicious flavours: Tex, Chocolate Cookie Dough, and Vanilla Cookie Dough.
