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. Most 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Each 20g serving of organic whey protein contains 15.4g of protein, 351mg calcium, only 0.7g of carbs and 1g of fat.
|Typical Values||Per 100g||Per 20g Serving|
|of which sugars||3.5g||0.7g|
|of which saturates||3.3g||0.65g|
|Calcium||1755mg||351mg (44% RI)|
|Phosphorus||873mg||175mg (25% RI)|
RI = Reference intake of an average adult (8400 kJ/2000 kcal)
|Amino Acid||Per 100 g||Per 20g Serving|
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)|
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.
It tests horrible, just can't take it. I have tried taking it, on it's own, with strong cocoa powder, strawberries but nothing takes that horrible feeling away. I literally about to vomit when I was having It first time.
Ah no, I'm ever so sorry to hear you didn't enjoy our organic whey protein. To lots of people it tastes great, some find it has no taste, and a small minority of people really don't enjoy it at all. We're all different in how we perceive tastes, so if you're happy to return the pack to us we'll be more than happy to refund you in full :-)
Overall experience is good, I can't say anything bad about it, i use it once per day after my morning exercises. I have to admit that I was very happy that I was able to find your item in the market :)
Why thank you very much :-) We're organic people too!
It was great. Great customer service
Thank you Mohammad :0)
The powder mixes really well in smoothies and the texture is light and creamy - all without the artificial sweetness of many other powders.
Thank you :^)
Best protein powder on the market!
Thank you very much :-)
I love this product, so light and great in smoothies...
Thank you Clare, it is pretty great in smoothies isn't it :0)
Top quality product.
Thank you Marc, it's great to hear that you like it :-)
Mixes well with water and has a nice mild taste.
Glad to hear you like, thank you :^)
Great product I would buy more if it were less expensive. I get this because there are so many dodgy additives and ingredients in most commercially produced supplements. Humans do not really need protein supplements. Protein is in most foods and we absorb and convert very little of what we consume. Nobody who eats food is protein deficient. That said I like to have the occasional shake after a very hard squash session AS A TREAT! I like the plain whey as it is efficient and you can experiment with flavourings.
Thank you :-)
Very good quality, I think the best on the market. The site is very simple and the purchase is always very easy. The package arrived in time as they said. Thank you "The Organic Protein Company" ! I'm very happy with this product!
Thank you very much, love the pic :-)
