    in other words, do some companies use 'better' whey than others.

    or is whey the same in every product?

    there's different types, isolate, hydrolyzed for example

    I'm sure quality and purity also varies between brands

    the difference is in the amount of protein and bcaa per lb.

    i was thinking that 1 gram of ON whey isolate or concentrate, is exactly the same as 1 gram of any other brand.

    but you're talking about quality and purity? Would it make any difference? probably not to most of in here.

    its all similar enough that 99% of us don't need to worry about it

    Some is better because of purity - i.e. how much protein per 100g. Also flavour is pretty important for some people.

    But whether you would see any difference switching from normal whey to a super-duper isolate/concentrate/whatever... probably not.

    That said, IIRC whey, casein and egg blends have been found to have benefits over whey alone.
