I know what you mean, I've been studying this kind of thing for a while so it's not as complex to me as it might be for you. Still, new info is coming at us all the time and it can just get plain exhausting!
I avoid isolated proteins because of things I've read about them but I really don't know how harmful they are. I'm just very leery about foods being torn apart in order to satisfy some popular notion of "good health". These fadish things always seem to come to an end at some point and nature comes out the winner every time.
Proteins are chemically and mechanically "isolated" from their natural components in order to get more protein into a smaller bite, or spoonful. People can be very impressed by numbers--the more protein they see in a protein powder the better they think it is...oh well. Life goes on.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
