Following filtered water on the label, we see two transparently labeled dairy-based protein sources:
Ghost chose to lead with milk protein isolate, which is 85% protein by weight, which yields less fat, carbohydrates, and lactose that the traditional milk protein concentrates used in other RTDs. Ghost Protein Drink is thicker than a standard whey protein shake due to the components inside: milk protein isolate is a high-quality protein source that’s made up of 80% casein (a slower-digesting protein) and 20% whey (a faster-digesting protein).
The casein inside leaves a thicker drink that simply works better in RTD form – but you don’t want too much thickness, which is why whey concentrate is added for the next ingredient:
The other protein source is whey protein concentrate (WPC), which can range from 34% to 80% protein by weight. You can tell by the yield (13 grams delivers 10 grams of complete protein) that it’s 77% protein by weight, which is an indication of a very high quality WPC.
While this means that there’s a bit more fat and milk sugar (lactose) provided, it also means we have some additional beneficial immune-boosting components like immunoglobulins, lactoglobulins, and lactoferrin.[3,4]
Beyond these ingredients, Ghost adds flavor systems (sorry, unlike the Ghost Whey Chips Ahoy! flavor, we don’t have inclusions here), oils, gums, gels, salt, and sweetening to tie the whole package together in one delicious drink.
