The answer for most people is yes, with the exception of our Raw Cacao & Maca Organic Whey Protein. It’s always wise to consult your doctor first however, in case of any possible medical reasons that we aren’t aware of.
It is a whey protein concentrate.
Yes. There are no detectable levels of heavy metals within the parameters our lab can test for.
In theory no, as it isn’t heated to excessive temperatures for a long enough period of time, nor is it subject to high acidity levels.
Yes, they feed on grass as well as some cereals such as oats, barley and millet.
There is an optional scoop when you make a purchase, so it is up to you :-)
There unfortunately isn’t enough organic cheese made in the UK to have a large enough supply of whey to make whey protein with it. You need very large quantities of whey to produce whey protein, as the filtration systems have to filter out such tiny things such as lactose from the whey and therefore the equipment is very expensive and can only be carried out on a very large scale. This is why we have organic whey from the UK combined with organic whey from a few other European countries such as Germany and France.
The rest is a combination of different minerals, vitamins and other nutrients present in the whey. It’s a similar case for other foods when adding up the total nutritional values on the pack, as there are tiny amounts of many many different things that aren’t shown on the label, as they all occur in such small quantities, but adding them all together they make quite up a decent amount of the total figure.
At present and for the foreseeable future there is no such thing as raw whey protein powder, due to the very large volumes of whey needed to produce whey protein at commercial scale and the current technology for turning this volume of whey into a protein powder. Hundreds of thousands to millions of litres per month are needed to produce whey protein and the only way to make it on a commercial scale does mean that most of the milk will be pasteurised. Additionally, spray drying, which involves heat of up to 200C is used in all whey protein facilities, though the whey protein only passes through for less than a second in most cases. Beware of any whey proteins being sold as raw, cold pressed or cold processed, as they aren’t being honest unfortunately.
It contains all of the components your body needs to produce Glutathione (Glutamate, Glycine and Cysteine + a Cysteine residue called Glutamylcysteine) so in theory yes it will.
We are using plastic packaging begrudgingly, as in order to maintain an 18 month shelf life there aren’t many options without using glass or metal, which are quite expensive and as well as using far more materials they are bulkier and heavier thereby increasing the carbon footprint from the shipping side of things. We are however continuously working toward using more sustainable alternatives, so watch this space :-)
The milk our whey is from comes mostly from Holstein cows, which is A1. However when it comes to whey protein, whether it’s A1 or A2 doesn’t make any real difference as far as we’re aware as the A2 and A1 proteins refer to the casein proteins in the milk and only the tiniest of traces (if any at all) are present in the whey protein, as they’re removed during the filtration process. The whey proteins in A1 and A2 are basically the same as far as we’re aware.
Yes, all of our protein powders are suitable for vegetarians
The UK, Germany, Austria, Denmark, France, the Netherlands and Czech Republic. Due to the large volume of whey required to make it the whey can’t just come from the UK.
