Finally, I want you to share my personal experience on this different kind of whey products.
According to my research and experience,
WPI is a much better choice in terms of cost effectiveness and 91% protein availability, then also it depends on the requirement which can vary from person to person.
If anyone is having a budget problem, then for him, he must go for WPC, as it is the cheapest protein available inside the market with, 80% protein availability.
Now if any one is not having a budget & taste issue, then he must go for WPH as it contains 100% protein availability.
Remember, always try to calculate your lean mass first, then see how much protein your body really needs, then choose the product according to your requirement, or else all the protein would be wasted.
If you are a beginner then I will suggest to rely on natural foods first for about a year, then go for supplements.
If you are a beginner then I will suggest everyone rely on natural food.
It’s not any one and only best answer for this question, but most of the people will be able to decide according to their requirement.
