You've probably heard of New Zealand Whey and have a general idea that its considered to be a superior whey protein source, but do you know exactly why? There are many reasons ranging from the way that is processed, the treatment and lifestyle of the dairy cows, and the different feed & products the cows themselves consume.
1. New Zealand Whey Uses Cross Flow Micro Filtration Processing
Nexpharma New Zealand Whey is an undenatured whey protein. Our cross flow micro filtration process separates the whey from the fats without denaturing the protein or damaging the nutrients with heat as in other protein manufacturing facilities in other countries. New Zealand whey is considered the best because the country continues to demand and require the highest standards for their food sources and production.
2. New Zealand Whey is Grass Fed and Free Range
Dairy cows on the New Zealand whey (dairy) farms are free range so they are free to eat and feed in vast pastures across New Zealand. The NZ cows are also hormone free and grass-fed so when cows are fed their natural diet of grasses which keeps them healthier compared to grain-fed cows on feedlots. Grain fed cattle accumulate toxins and bacteria in their digestive system because they are fed grains rather than grasses. The milking process used by New Zealand farmers is also more humane and natural. The cows are milked only according to season. Industrial farms in US artificially impregnate repeatedly to maximize profits.
3. All in all there are No Hormones and No Antibiotics in New Zealand Whey Protein
The dairy cows from New Zealand are not given any antibiotics or hormones and they do not use pesticides on the grasses that the cattle eat. Why should you watch out for hormones and antibiotics in your whey? Industrial companies use hormones and antibiotics to increase growth and milk production. The use of antibiotics and hormones in cows such as rBGH can mean serious health issues for people including instances of puberty at ages of 7 and 8 in young girls. Resistance to antibiotics in humans is also occurring because of the use of antibiotics in dairy cow feed.
There are many more reasons why New Zealand Whey is an optimal choice but these top three are what create the increasing demand for a more responsible whey protein source.
