Organic Protein Powder

I am a regular user of protein powder. Daily I use whey protein, usually in isolate form since it is easiest for the body to process, digest and immediately put to work in the body. I love it post-workout for recovery.

At night I am a casein protein fan. It is slow digesting and helps prevent muscle loss throughout the night and those long non-eating sleeping hours.

I never really thought about where my protein was coming from though. Although I knew the different types of protein, I never thought about getting organic protein. I usually opted for natural, but organic and natural are not fully defined by the FDA and USDA.

Once I started to think about where my protein was coming from, I realized something. Protein powder is a derivative from milk, which mainly comes from cows. I do prefer healthier cuts of meat, especially from grass fed cows. So it made sense to get my protein from the milk of grass fed cows.

I stumbled upon The Organic Whey, a small nutrition company that produces a USDA certified organic whey protein that's healthy for you and the planet.

How could I argue with getting a better strain of protein and also from a company that is vested in reducing its carbon foot print?

Well I easily could if the protein didn't taste good. Taste is still of utmost importance followed by type and concentration of protein.
A few key reasons as to why organic protein is better include the following:

  • Only 1 Ingredient - Fresh Organic Whey Powder
    Sourced 100% from grass-fed cows on sustainable family farms in the USA
  • Processed in small batches to preserve freshness and quality
  • 100% USDA Certified Organic
  • Delicious fresh, flavor without added flavors, dyes, artificial ingredients or sweeteners
  • Higher in antioxidants and other nutrients than conventional whey powders
  • Contains all 8 essential amino acids
  • Does not contain any genetically modified ingredients

    If you are not sold by these benefits, try it yourself. I think you'll be happily surprised.
