New Zealand Whey Protein and the New Zealand Dairy Industry is perhaps the most advanced dairy producer on the globe which is consequently reflected in the products the industry produces.
Today, the sports nutrition industry considers New Zealand grass-fed whey protein concentrate to be the finest quality undenatured whey protein concentrate supplement, and for a good reason too. Other whey protein concentrates on the market often use cows that are fed grains that provide little nutrition and are often tainted with fertilizers and pesticides. They are injected with hormones, so the milk they provide is not as fresh and healthy as you would like. On the other side of the spectrum, New Zealand grass-fed cattle freely roam and graze on lush, natural grass. Whey derived from these cows are hormone-free. As a result, they produce a much healthier and much better quality, hormone-free protein powder.
As mentioned, basic Whey Protein Concentrate is derived from cow’s milk, and is generally around 70 – 85% protein per serving. It is rich in amino acids and other nutrients, and is a very affordable protein. As we’ve already covered basic whey protein a little earlier on, we’ll not go over the same things again.
Grass-Fed New Zealand Whey Protein Concentrate
Grass-fed New Zealand Whey Protein Concentrate however, is considered to be of a much higher quality than regular whey protein concentrates, because of what the cows have been fed and grazing on when they produced the milk. Instead of being fed grains and corns, which will have been treated and grown with chemicals and pesticides, the New Zealand grass is instead all natural, so the cows themselves are eating a healthier diet. The protein is generally much purer, plus, it is enriched with far more omega 3 fatty acids, and Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA, than milk that comes from grain-fed cattle. Put simply, the healthier the cow, the better quality the milk they produce will be, which means the better quality the whey protein will be.
The ultimate in naturally flavoured protein powder, All Natural Grass-fed New Zealand Concentrate not only brings all of the health benefits of New Zealand whey, but it is also sweetened with Stevia, an all-natural sweetener extracted from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant species.
The main difference between whey protein concentrate, and grass-fed New Zealand whey protein concentrate, is the fact that the cows are much healthier than regular cattle, because they constantly graze on lush green New Zealand grass, as opposed to being fed mass-produced grains that are full of chemicals and artificial additives. The end result is a much purer protein that contains more nutrients. A regular whey concentrate will be around 80% protein per serving, sometimes less than that, whereas grass-fed whey concentrates from New Zealand, can be as high as 90% which is very impressive for a concentrate.
Another key benefit associated with grass-fed New Zealand whey protein concentrate, is the fact that the protein is far superior to other generic whey protein concentrate supplements, because the cows are so healthy, are so well looked after, and are allowed to graze on lush green grass, just as nature intended. The end result is a much purer, much tastier, and much healthier milk, which is used to create a much healthier protein supplement.
After exercising, the muscles are primed in such a way as they can absorb more nutrients than they would in a rested state, and not only that, but they need certain nutrients in order to kick-start the recovery process. Whey concentrate is absorbed extremely quickly, so it can make its way into the bloodstream faster and be delivered to the awaiting muscle cells, where it can help the post-workout recovery process to begin almost immediately.
Another benefit of these supplements is the fact that they are so convenient and can easily allow individuals to increase their protein intakes, which in turn will help them to meet their daily protein macronutrient requirements, without the need for eating large quantities of food.
