Our grass fed organic whey protein powders have been enjoyed by over 25,000 protein lovers to date! We believe this is because it's the highest quality whey protein in the UK, and here are a few reasons 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…
These are a key reason whey protein is so much more than “just” a quality protein, as many of these proteins & antibodies happen to also be found in human breast milk, and appear to have numerous health benefits. We've had our whey protein tested for the key bioactive proteins, the results of which you can read about 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.
The quality is far superior to anything else on the market
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 cutting edge facilities in Germany (our original organic whey range) and Austria (our organic whey isolate), preserving the natural properties of the whey and ensuring a smooth creamy taste, with no strange aftertaste.
We’ve donated over £30,000 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.
