What sets Isoflex Whey Protein Isolate apart?
What is whey and why is it so valued as the core foundation of every serious performance nutrition program? Whey is a thin, watery portion of milk chockfull of high-grade protein that’s separated during cheese production. It is extracted through a two-step process. The type of extraction conducted to separate whey from milk is what really determines the quality of whey protein. It’s this exact process that also sets Isoflex protein powder apart from others on the market.
How is Isoflex made?
Isoflex is extracted through CTP (Cold Temperature Process) microfiltration. This is a cross-flow microfiltration (CFM) process that removes the larger, less absorbable protein molecules while filtering out fat, lactose and ash that are normally present in whey concentrates and other lower quality protein powders. This is similar to the way reverse osmosis in water purification works.
The Low Temperature Microfiltration Provides Undenatured Protein with many Bioactive Whey Protein Fractions
CFM is one of the best methods for extracting protein on the market today. The whole process takes place at a chilly 4 degrees Celsius, or 39 degrees Fahrenheit and leaves almost 100% of the protein and peptides intact. It also yields the highest amount of undenatured (bio-active) protein available.
Their whey protein isolates are manufactured by chilling or low temperature microfiltration process and dried by indirect heat. The low temperature microfiltration process allows the whey protein isolates to provide undenatured protein with a full balance of bioactive whey protein fractions, including high levels of naturally occurring immunoglobulin, lactoferrin and glycomacropeptides (GMP).
The filtration ceramic membranes used for the CFM process are extraordinarily fine and have the ability to remove even more lactose, ash and fat than the process of ultra-filtration, which is used for lower quality whey protein products. Using this sophisticated process, ALLMAX is able to produce Isoflex, a superior ultra pure protein that maintains an optimal macronutrutient ratio, yielding 27 grams of protein, 1 gram of carbohydrate and 0 grams of fat.
Other whey processing technologies use higher temperatures that cause irreversible unfolding of the protein fractions that can drastically reduce the biological activity of the protein. Based on solubility at a pH of 4.6, Isoflex has a mere 3% denatured proteins, which is approximately 10% less than ion-exchange whey protein isolates and typically less than other microfiltration whey protein isolates. Isoflex also contains up to 12 times more native GMP than ion-exchange whey protein isolates.
How is Whey Protein Isolate produced?
To produce whey isolate the protein goes through the following steps:
- Fresh milk is tested by quality assurance experts.
- The curd portion of the milk fat is separated out for cheese.
- The watery liquid portion that is chockfull of high-grade protein is filtered through a microfiltration process to remove lactose and ash.
- The concentrated liquid goes through the CFM process, which eliminates the need for harsh chemicals used in other processes.
- The water is removed and the whey is dried.
- Ultra pure whey protein isolate is packaged and ready for our ALLMAX customer.
All of these steps are performed at a cGMP licensed manufacturing facility to ensure quality and integrity. Every ingredient and every lot produced is independently lab tested for purity and quality to ensure consistent quality every time.
Isoflex is manufactured in the US with US Dairy Cows. ALLMAX protein products contain absolutely zero protein sourced from China.
Every lot of ALLMAX proteins are tested for heavy metals. No lot is ever released if it does not pass these tests.

1. Can I use ISOFLEX with other supplements?
Yes, you can. Depending on your goals, ISOFLEX complements many other ALLMAX Nutrition products to help you get your training to the next level. ISOFLEX is highly versatile and is considered an ideal base, meaning it can be used well with just about every other supplement. If you’re trying to lose weight or lean out try combining RapidCuts Shredded with ISOFLEX. If you’re trying to bulk up or put on weight Aminocore and Glutamine are excellent products to try in addition to ISOFLEX protein powder.
2. How do I take ISOFLEX?
Combine 1 scoop (30 grams) of ISOFLEX protein powder with 1/2 cup, or 120 ml of water, juice or milk (most choose water or skim milk), depending on your preference, at any time during the day that you need a protein boost.
Most athletes with elevated protein requirements double each serving with 2 scoops of ISOFLEX with 1 cup, or 240 ml water, providing 60 grams of protein. Most bodybuilders are aware that high levels of protein consumption are critical to their success. Most will aim for 1.5 to 2 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight daily and space their consumption throughout the day. ISOFLEX mixes well in a shaker cup but can be combined with other ingredients in a blender as a smoothie as well.
3. What does ISOFLEX contain?
ISOFLEX combines four proprietary delivery systems. The ingredients in each system work synergistically to provide a high-quality and great-tasting protein powder that’s been designed to help you reach your goals.
The four advanced delivery systems are:
WPI Complex [WPI Fortified™]: CTP (Cold Temperature Process), cross-flow microfiltered whey protein isolate, WPI (97% Whey Protein Isolate). This high quality whey protein isolate complex can help you reach your body-shaping goals.
NOS Complex (Ultra-Flow Delivery™): contains arginine, taurine and folic acid. Designed to increase blood flow and increase nitrogen and whey peptide delivery. It can also boost nitric oxide levels, thereby speeding up recovery and protein delivery to muscle tissues.

4. What makes ISOFLEX superior to other protein powders on the market?
The first thing that really sets ISOFLEX apart from any other protein powder on the market is its taste. It actually tastes amazing! And with six delicious flavors to choose from, there’s sure to be one that satisfies your distinct taste buds.
Secondly and most importantly, it has been formulated with only the most superior blend of whey protein available – whey protein isolate – many other protein powders on the market use whey concentrates and other inferior blends that contain only 30-80% of protein and include lactose and fats.
Additionally, the macronutrient profile of ISOFLEX is exceptional. It’s virtually fat free, lactose-free, contains only 1 gram of sugar and best of all, provides you with a whopping 27 grams of the highest quality protein available!
5. What is ISOFLEX sweetened with?
ISOFLEX is sweetened with acesulfame-potassium and does not contain any aspartame.
6. Will ISOFLEX give me big, bulky muscles?
For those of you trying to lose weight or tone up, drinking protein supplements such as ISOFLEX are not going to give you big, bulky muscles. In fact, ISOFLEX can actually help you reach your weight loss goals as protein has been shown to stabilize blood glucose levels. This will reduce hunger cravings, stabilize blood insulin levels, putting your body in an ideal fat burning zone.
For all you bodybuilders out there, you probably already know it takes a lot of hard work at the gym, proper nutrition (including a lot of calories) and genetics to get big and bulky muscles. But ISOFLEX can provide you with the nutrients your body needs to recover from your workouts and is a great protein option to help fuel your muscles.
7. When should I take ISOFLEX?
In the Morning
When you sleep, your body goes without food for six or more hours putting you in a state of catabolism. To shift your body into an anabolic state (which is essential to increase lean muscle mass) consume a protein shake with 1-2 scoops of ISOFLEX or add a couple scoops of ISOFLEX to a hearty bowl of oatmeal.
By consuming a protein shake with 1-2 scoops of ISOFLEX approximately 30 minutes prior to training you can maximize protein synthesis and prevent catabolism.
As soon as you’ve dropped your final set your next step should be to consume an ISOFLEX protein shake with some fast-acting carbs (2-3 rice cakes are a quick and easy option). This will boost protein synthesis and prevent muscle breakdown. A second option popular with bodybuilders is KRUSH LOADED immediately after working out, then 30 minutes later, ISOFLEX protein powder.
For high performance nutrition make every protein option count by consuming high quality protein choices. ISOFLEX is a delicious perfect blend of protein that’ll provide the nutrients you need to take it to the next level!
8. Do I have to use a blender to mix up my ISOFLEX protein powder?
Using a blender will increase the creaminess of your shake, but ISOFLEX was developed as an instantized protein powder through an advanced technological process, so that it mixes easily in a shaker cup and doesn’t require a blender. Those who have tried ISOFLEX have commented that it mixes well with water or milk in a shaker cup, creating a nice, smooth drink. ISOFLEX mixes so easily, you can even mix it with a fork.
9. What is whey protein isolate?
Whey protein is simply one of the by-products in the manufacturing of cheese. Whey protein is considered the pinnacle of all sources of protein, as it is readily absorbed by the body and has a very high biological value. Whey protein isolate is a purer form of whey protein as it contains less fat and lactose. It also has a higher biological value than whey protein concentrates. Whey protein isolate is a far superior source than a whey protein concentrate and allows the highest percentage of protein per gram. Although whey protein isolates generally cost more than concentrate blends, the quality is certainly worth it.
10. Is whey better than soy?
There is quite a lot of controversy among nutritional experts about this. Although whey protein has a higher biological value than soy protein, a lot of scientific research has proven that soy protein can also offer a variety of health benefits. ISOFLEX protein powder is composed of exclusively whey protein and has a much higher bioavailable value, but there’s no reason why you can’t include soy protein in your balanced diet as well. However, many people shy away from soy due to concerns over estrogenic proteins.
11. Is ISOFLEX gluten-free?
There is no gluten in ISOFLEX, but it is produced in a facility that handles other wheat products and therefore, they cannot call it gluten-free.
12. Can I use ISOFLEX if I’m lactose-intolerant?
ISOFLEX is over 98% lactose-free and is well-tolerated by those who have lactose intolerance.
13. Can I use ISOFLEX if I have peanut allergies?
Yes, ISOFLEX is peanut-free (with the exception of the peanut butter chocolate flavor).
14. Is ISOFLEX suitable for vegans?
No, it is not suitable for vegans.
15. Is ISOFLEX considered Kosher?
No, it is not considered Kosher.
16. Does ISOFLEX contain soy?
Yes, but not as an ingredient. Soy lecithin is used to help the solubility of the protein, but the amount left behind is residual.
17. I eat beef, chicken and eggs, do I still need to use ISOFLEX?
Unlike animal sources of protein, ISOFLEX travels well in a gym bag or suitcase for a quick protein boost whenever you need one. ISOFLEX is simply a convenient high protein, low fat addition to your diet plan. For those of you who are bodybuilding and are trying to consume between 1.5 and 3 grams of protein per pound of body weight, you know all too well how difficult and expensive this kind of diet can be. Aside from providing a simple way to quickly and easily get your protein, ISOFLEX also absorbs rapidly and contains 4 proprietary complexes to augment absorption, improve recovery and increase nutrient delivery.
