In April 2014 we launched the UK’s first organic whey protein powder. Although we are no longer alone in this market, we believe our product is still the best, and here’s why:
We put the great taste down to using only fresh whey and not subjecting it to excessive temperatures during the filtration or spray drying process, which can sometimes lend a bitterness to the taste and ruin the fresh creamy flavour – not so with our organic whey protein!
The cows that produce the milk for our organic whey protein are fed grass every day of the year. During the winter months when the weather is too grim for them to be outside they are fed grass in the form of hay, silage or haylage.
Organic means higher welfare standards. The cows graze outdoors for most of the year and when housed indoors during the winter they have plenty of room to move about, clean dry bedding, natural light and hay to feed on. You are also avoiding artificial pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified organisms, there is more wildlife, less pollution of waterways, healthier soil and happier bees. The list of benefits goes on and on…
Heavy metals are in the food we eat and the air we breathe. Some foods often contain more heavy metals than others, such as fish, rice and leafy green vegetables. Some protein powders have been found to contain high levels of heavy metals too, which is why we had our organic whey protein tested for heavy metals and the results show it contains very low levels, way below EU limits. You can see the results here.
We publish independent nutritional test results for every batch, explain how every ingredient is made and list the countries of origin for all the ingredients too.
High quality protein from your company always trumps the synthetic protein powders available on the market these days. The cleanliness of the taste speaks for itself and I don't get any bloating from your product. Thank you so much!!
In the case of our Pure Unflavoured organic whey protein, there is just one ingredient: our award winning grass fed organic whey protein. For our flavours we add a small number of quality organic whole foods to the whey protein for a fresh delicious taste, without resorting to artificial or “natural” flavourings. For a subtle sweetness we use a small amount of unrefined organic coconut sugar.
Made using low temperature filtration at a cutting edge facility in Germany, preserving the natural properties of the whey and ensuring a smooth creamy taste, with no strange aftertaste.
We’ve donated over £20,000 to Compassion in World Farming to date and continue to donate 25p for every pack of organic whey protein made. They are helping to improve welfare standards around the world and many of their campaigns have directly resulted in wide-scale change, e.g. UK supermarkets stopping the sale of eggs from caged hens and playing a big part in helping end live animal exports.
Whey protein is a high quality “complete” protein, which means it contains all 9 of the essential amino acids, in other words those that your body can’t produce on its own. It also contains all the Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) – which form the structure of new muscle tissue. It is readily absorbed by the muscles and also happens to be one of the most easily digested protein sources.
