Whey protein is currently, and has been for many years now, the most popular sports supplement in the entire world, and one can easily find oneself overwhelmed when trying to find their ideal whey protein supplement. Contrary to what some people may tell you, not all whey proteins are created equally, and not all whey concentrates are created equally. All natural grass-fed New Zealand whey protein for example, despite being from concentrate, is considered to be far superior in virtually every way.
Whey protein is a natural derivative of dairy, usually cow’s milk. It is obtained when milk separates and begins to turn into cheese. The solid part of the milk, now known as the curds, contains primarily casein proteins, which are slow-release, whereas the liquid that is left behind is known as the whey, which, not surprisingly, is where the whey protein is obtained. So then, you may be wondering why whey protein is powdered when you buy it, instead of being a liquid. This is because the liquid whey is filtered, gently pasteurized, and processed, where various nutrients and ingredients are added, along with various processing and filtration methods, which provide the powered whey protein. All natural grass-fed New Zealand whey protein concentrate however, comes from grass-fed New Zealand cattle, which makes it far, far healthier and more beneficial. It is also contains no artificial flavours or sweeteners. The flavours that we use are completely natural and our all natural grass-fed whey is sweetened with Stevia, an all-natural sugar substitute that is extracted from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant and has up to 150 times the sweetness of sugar. Also, the steviosides in Stevia have a negligible effect on blood sugar levels thus making it a great sweetener for low carbohydrate diets.
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.
As mentioned, this is still a whey concentrate, which means it is around 80 – 85% pure protein per serving. The main difference between whey protein and all natural grass-fed whey protein however, is the fact that the protein is of a much finer quality as it is free from harmful chemicals, preservatives and artificial flavours and sweeteners. It comes from healthy cows that graze on grass instead of chemically-treated grains, which in turn means that they produce a much tastier and much healthier protein supplement, once it has been derived from their milk, of course. And it is flavoured with natural flavouring and sweetened with Stevia, an all-natural, low-calorie sweetener.

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.
