A better whey

Our organic whey is carefully sourced from small organic farms in the UK and around Europe, where the cows are free to roam outdoors on open pastures, feeding on grass all year round. Even during the winter months they're still given full freedom to roam outdoors, weather permitting of course! Surely they must only be fed grain during the winter, right? Nope, even during winter they're fed grass and other organic plant material in the form of haylage...basically the same as what the cows graze on during the spring and summer, only in dried form. Year round the cows' grass based diet is supplemented with a small amount of organic grain to ensure the milk they produce contains healthy levels of protein.

Having gently filtered our organic whey to gently remove most of the fat and lactose, it would seem a shame to then add a load of unnecessary ingredients to such a pure and naturally tasty product. So we haven’t, and it’s not just flavourings and sweeteners you’ll be avoiding here. Many whey protein powders contain soy lecithin, a substance extracted from the soya bean that helps it mix more easily with water. The majority of people we’ve spoken with were happy for us to leave out this ingredient as our organic whey protein mixes very well in a blender without it. If it's a clean protein powder you're after, you've just found it!

Giving back

We give 25p to Compassion In World Farming for every pack made, which goes towards helping improve the welfare of cows and other farm animals in the UK and around the world. Additionally, we have a tree planted for every pack to help compensate for the inevitable CO2 emmissions resulting from producing and then transporting our whey protein to the UK.

Traceable to the source

Every stage of the process is recorded, from field to pack, so we're able to keep track of exactly where our whey comes from. This is helped along by the rigorous organic procedures in place, ensuring each stage is thoroughly documented and therefore a lot easier to keep track of.

Vegetarian friendly

All our cheese makers use vegetarian rennet when making their organic cheeses, therefore every batch of organic whey is suitable for vegetarians. Why use animal-based rennet when there’s a perfectly good vegetarian option? There’s no reason to, it’s as simple as that really.

Ingredients

There's just one ingredient: Organic Whey Protein. That's it, no sweeteners flavourings, fillers or anything else whatsoever. It's as simple as that.

Heavy metals

After much demand we've had our Organic Whey Protein tested for heavy metals and the findings are reassuringly low:

Amino Acid mg/kg (parts per million)
Cadmium <0.005
Lead <0.01
Arsenic <0.01
Mercury <0.001

These are the lowest detectable levels our lab (or indeed any lab we contacted) was able to test for. For example the Cadmium test result tells us that none was detected at the lowest testing level of 0.005 mg/kg. So therefore we know that there is less than 0.005 mg/kg. These results compare favourably with heavy metals testing carried out on other protein powders on the market, in fact we were unable to find results from any other protein powders that were more favourable than these, which is great news.

To increase protein intake.

The taste is great but it’s very hard to mix.

Hi Amy, thank you very much for the feedback and it's great to hear you like the taste! When it comes to mixing, using a blender or shaking very vigorously for 20-30 seconds in a hand shaker are two very effective mixing techniques. I hope that helps anyhow :-)
