Whey Protein is without a doubt one of the most well known protein supplements on the market.
Way before Arnold was pushing weight in Venice Beach, Hippocrates was using whey to treat patients. There is even evidence of whey protein usage in the 18th and 19th centuries by spas in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Whey is no longer used solely by competitive body builders or bikini models. Health fanatics have jumped on board and begun to see the benefits of supplementing whey protein into their diets. As the fitness industry has grown and evolved, so to has the market and distribution process of whey.
Simply put, whey protein is the liquid that's left after separating the liquid from cheese curds, a primary process is cheesemaking. Enzymes and/or heat is used to start this process.
In cheesemaking, the raw milk often undergoes multiple processes and pasteurizations, and as a result is less abundant in nutrients and the immune boosting properties that make raw milk so nutritionally potent.
If you know us here at Wild Foods, then you know that this wouldn't fly for us.
Wild Whey is made directly from milk, making it the purest (and best) form of whey to consume. Wild whey goes through a single pasteurization process (at low temperatures) and is air cooled using ambient air temperature. Due to this gentle process, Wild whey protein is carefully protected and maintains the highest nutrient profile possible.
As a result of the quality processes and ethical treatment of the cows we use, Wild Whey is one of the best tasting protein powders on the market.
Wild Whey has an slightly milky flavor and tastes great with water or other liquids (try it with Wild Coffee!). Our whey protein never contains added sugar and our vanilla and chocolate flavors are sweetened with nature's favorite sweet leaf; stevia!
One of the primary reasons whey picked up so much traction in the health and fitness communities is for the high amino acid content.
Amino acids are the building blocks of the body and support muscle growth and recovery. Wild Whey Protein is jam packed with amino acids. Aspartic acid, Cysteine, Glutamic acid, Glycine, Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Serine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Tyrosine, and Valine to name a few.
Best way to use Whey
Add a scoop of a Wild Whey Protein to your shaker bottle and shake!
There's an even better way... our favorite way to consume Wild Whey...
At Wild Foods we like to add a scoop of wild protein to our morning coffee! With a hint of sweetness and a creamy texture it’s a great substitute for coffee creamer. But we don't add it to hot coffee since that can damage the properties of the whey that you we so desperately want in our bodies. Instead, we follow this recipe.
If smoothies are more your style, add some WW to your smoothie packed with banana, cacao, and almond milk or coconut milk.
