PROTEIN


Protein is the building blocks of the human body. From building new cells and maintaining muscle tissue to firing nerve impulses, without protein the body would simply not be able to function.
If protein is the building blocks of the human body then amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and muscle tissue. They are responsible for energy levels, muscle and strength gains, recovery, fat loss as well as mood and brain function. Of the 22 amino acids we need, the human body can only produce 13 of them – the other 9 must be consumed in our diet, these are called essential amino acids. Of the 9 essential amino acids 3 are called Branched-chain amino acids. BCAA’s, in particular Leucine which has been proven to stimulate muscle synthesis.
Whey protein is one of two proteins naturally found in milk, the other being casein. Whey protein is produced as a by-product of the cheese making process. It comes in powder form, is water-soluble and is usually consumed mixed with milk or water.
Whey protein Isolate, in it’s natural form contains at least 90% protein by weight, is generally very low in lactose (ours contains less than .9%), fat, carbs and cholesterol.
Whey protein is a complete source of protein and is one of the best sources of branch chain amino acids (BCAA’s) and essential amino acids (EAA’s).
  • Whey protein concentrate (WPC).Contains between 29% – 89% protein and is higher in fat, carbs and lactose.
  • Whey protein isolate (WPI), in its natural form contains at least 90% protein by weight, is generally very low in lactose (ours contains less than 0.9%), fat, carbs and cholesterol.
Although whey protein isolate is the more expensive option of the 2 types of whey it is much higher in protein, absorbed faster, and is lower in fat, lactose, carbs and cholesterol.

WHO IS OUR GRASS-FED WPI FOR?


Whey Protein Isolate is high in the Branched-chain amino acid Leucine, which stimulates fat oxidation. WPI also helps to satiate appetite (make you feel full) and is a much better option than the plethora of unhealthy food choices we’re constantly surrounded by.
During and after exercise the body requires higher amounts of amino acids to replace those that have been depleted during physical exertion. WPI is high in BCAA’s which are able to be absorbed directly into the muscle tissue which in turn allows for lean muscle growth and faster recovery from exercise.
It can be difficult to get enough protein in your diet as a vegetarian. Whey Protein Isolate is a simple, cost-effective way to bump up your daily protein intake.
Our Whey Protein Isolate contains less than 0.9% lactose which generally isn’t enough to trigger the side effects commonly associated with lactose intolerance. However, everyone is different and if you’re unsure we recommend giving our 1-serve packs a try first.

USING WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE


  • As part of a shake.

  • Included in nutritional recipes.
If you are an athlete and/or want to gain muscle it is best to consume pre or post workout. If you are trying to lose weight or are vegetarian it can be consumed any time throughout the day.

INGREDIENTS


Cows that allowed to roam the country side and feed on grass are happier, healthier and produce milk higher in nutrients. WPI from grass-fed dairy cows is free from growth hormones, chemicals, antibiotics and genetically modified organisms.
Organic foods are grown naturally without the use of synthetic chemicals such as pesticides or artificial fertilisers. As well as being higher in nutrients, being organic means it is better for the environment and better for us.
Stevia is extracted from the Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni plant, is roughly 300 times sweeter than sugar and doesn’t trigger a rise in blood sugar levels. We only use a very small amount of organic stevia extract in our prodcts to get the taste just right
