Discover the delicious, life-enhancing benefits of the world's finest non-denatured, low-temperature-processed whey concentrate, made exclusively from pasture-raised organic milk!
When it’s low-temperature-processed and contains all its fragile immune factors and nutrients, nothing tops the superfood power of pasture-raised whey concentrate—it’s one of nature’s most perfect foods. Loaded with the ideal blend of nutrients — easily-absorbed amino acids, anti-inflammatory immune factors and metabolism-boosting peptides, along with potent antioxidants and alkaline minerals — this delicious, creamy whey protein is ideal for muscle nourishment, immune support, exercise recovery and body rejuvenation.
Better Than Grass Fed
Our product comes from small free-range pasture dairies. Typical whey products are a big-business by-product of massive factory farming operations, using hormones, antibiotics, and chemicals from start to finish. Because of this, they are frequently contaminated, often with heavy metals.
Even organic whey powders are not as complete. They're ususally high-temperature-processed and isolated, so they lack our whey’s alkalinizing minerals and immune co-factor proteins.
What about "grass-fed" whey? Grass-fed cows are on restricted feed diets and produce very little milk, so they often end up going to slaughter after leading stressful lives. "Grass-fed" does not specify whether the animals are free-range or not, and they can be kept in confined conditions. Our cows are Pasture-Raised outdoors. The main difference is they can be supplemented with other feeds when necessary, so they have a more consistent diet, are better milk producers, and live longer, healthier lives.
Certified Organic Pastured-Rasied
Because we start with pure, organic-certified, pasture-raised whey, and we use a low-temperature process that doesn't involve any acid-treatment, additives, or mineral-stripping.
Typical whey powders are high-heat-treated, acid-flushed, and stripped of vital nutrients, creating an imbalanced, acidic "whey isolate" that's frequently contaminated with synthetic additives, chemical detergents, and heavy metals. It's no wonder that other whey products are hard to digest and have to cover up their acidic aftertaste with unhealthy sweeteners and artificial flavors.Because our whey is derived from raw milk used in making raw cheeses, it requires thorough monitoring to meet stringent state-mandated purity levels. Small, artisinal dairy farmers follow a pristine process in which the raw milk is kept in stainless steel containers and never exposed to open air.
The milk used to make organic aged cheese must still heated, but far cooler and faster than in typical cheese-making or milk-pasteurization. To start the curdling process, the milk is heated to 72˚C for a brief 15 seconds and then cooled down to 5˚C. The thick, fatty casein proteins (which become cheese) separate from the water-soluble whey proteins. The whey is then forced through ceramic micro-filters that trap virtually all microbial elements, yielding a pure, clean product. The final liquid whey is dried to create a powder, and no fillers or chemical treatments are used.
This pure powdered whey concentrate (not an isolate) is a real food, complete with all whey immune factors and bioactive peptides, along with nutritional co-factors like vitamins, alkaline-minerals, and healthy non-homogenized fats.
Whey Concentrate vs. Whey Isolate
Whey concentrates contain the full range of nutrients found in whey: proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins, growth factors (including IGF-1, TGF-1, and TGF-2) and immune factors (including immunoglobulins and lactoferrin). Of the fats, pasture-raised whey is particularly rich in the cell-building phospholipid known as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
Research suggests that together, these synergistic nutrients can improve immunity, intestinal health, and have many other beneficial effects.
Gram for gram, whey concentrate has less protein than whey isolate, but clearly it’s better to fuel the body with *smart* protein than with *dumb* protein.
A NOTE ON LACTOSE
Whey concentrate does contain lactose, the natural sugar found in mother’s milk as well as cow’s milk. Some people are concerned about lactose because they have been told they are allergic to it, or, more accurately, that their body doesn’t produce the enzyme (lactase) that breaks down lactose, causing the lactose to over-feed the body’s probiotics (which then create excess gas or other uncomfortable symptoms).
Although we always suggest consulting with your doctor, if you are concerned about lactose but still want the nutritional benefits of our whey, it is easy enough to take an enzyme supplement when consuming our healthy organic whey concentrate.
