Top whey protein choices for beverages include:

Hilmar™ 9420​ Whey Protein Isolate is designed for low pH systems looking for transparent protein fortification. It reduces overall tartness and astringency even at higher usage levels.

Hilmar™ 9400​ WPI and Hilmar™ 9410​ WPI have acid and heat stability and can withstand the rigors pasteurization. Their thin-as-water viscosity makes light, refreshing beverages possible. Hilmar™ 9400 is clear in liquid and Hilmar™ 9410 is instantized for spoon-stirrable dispersibility in dry mixes.

Hilmar™ 8350 ​WPH is a moderately hydrolysed WPH providing flavor and health benefits. Optimized for nutritional uses, Hilmar™ 8350 has a bland taste with reduced bitterness and contains pre-digested proteins, short peptides and free amino acids. It is especially useful in fortification of bolder drinks such as coffee and chocolate where it can enhance the flavor.
