Organic Whey Protein Banana & Lucuma
We've only used real bananas and a small amount of organic lucuma fruit, for a super healthy banana blend that doesn't have a strong taste of banana, as when you’re using real banana in a protein shake the taste of banana is actually quite subtle and not like the artificial banana flavour used in most commercial banana milkshakes. There are pleasant malt and caramel notes too, thanks to the lucuma, and indeed banana does also take on a slightly malty flavour when dried.
We've crammed the equivalent of one medium banana into each serving, so you're getting 15.88% of your recommended daily intake of Potassium and a healthy amount of unprocessed carbohydrates too. With a nearly 50:50 protein to carb ratio, this is perfect if you're looking to increase your carbs alongside your protein intake.

Who is it for?
This is a protein powder anyone can use, regardless of your gender or what your goals may be. People often use our organic whey protein for the following reasons:
- Muscle and bone health
- Supporting a healthy active lifestyle
- To help keep going during times of physical stress
- Increased need for protein as a result of medical issues
- Lacking protein from other foods due to dietary restrictions
- Some people just enjoy the taste and find the benefits to be a bonus
Organic whey protein concentrate from organic milk (54%), organic drum dried banana powder (44%), organic lucuma powder (2%)
Mix one serving (37.5g) with 100ml water or 150ml milk in a blender for a few seconds, or shake vigorously in a hand shaker for 30 seconds. A very effective alternative is to use a handheld milk frother for around 10-15 seconds. You can use more liquid as desired, though this will result in the flavour and creaminess being watered down. It can also be added to smoothies, yoghurt, cakes and other bakes foods, or just about any food or drink you fancy giving an extra banana-y protein + carb boost.
37.5g is equivalent to approximately 90ml, which is equal to 0.38 cup, 5 tablespoons, 3 scoops, or of course you can also weigh on a set of kitchen scales for the best accuracy. Many people only have half a serving (18.8g or 45ml) as they don't need a lot of extra protein in their diet, so feel free to use less if this sounds like you.
Each 37.5g serving of contains 16.16g of protein, 15.7g of carbs and 0.9g of fat.
|Typical Values||Per 100g||Per 37.5g Serving|

Bioactive protein fractions
Bioactive proteins are a key reason whey protein is so much more than “just” a quality protein, as many of these proteins are also in human breast milk, and there is a lot of evidence that they have a wide range of health benefits. You can read more on this in our blog post here.
|Bioactive protein||Per 100g||Per 25g Serving|
|Immunoglobulin G (IgG)||1.78g||446mg|
These figures are based on the test results from our Pure Unflavoured organic whey protein concentrate, which we have then reduced to 54% of the total result, as this is the percentage of organic whey protein concentrate in the Banana & Lucuma blend. You can download the original certificate here.
