The Benefits Of Whey Protein Concentrate

Improving your recovery time

Protein intake is vital after exercise, as it assists the repair of exercise-induced damage to muscle fibres. It facilitates the replenishment of depleted energy stores and contains the essential amino acids needed for your body to recover and perform optimally.

Weight management

Protein helps to boost metabolism and prevent body fat storage in conjunction with an active lifestyle. Blending up a serve of our whey protein concentrate with dairy/nut milk with some frozen fruit is a delicious healthy breakfast or lunch which will keep you nutritionally satisfied until your next meal.

Immunity & wellness

Protein is essential for a healthy working immune system. It is a major energy source and it is responsible for everything from building tissues, boosting immunity, and making your hair and nails strong and shiny.


Key Ingredients

You won't find any fillers or ingredients that provide no nutritional value in our blends. We use minimal ingredients and processing to craft a protein that delivers on performance and taste.

Australian Whey Protein Concentrate

Australian Whey Protein Concentrate

Much of the natural amino acid profile and immune boosting fractions retained in WPC are typically lost in other whey proteins forms. The full-spectrum of beneficial grass-fed dairy protein fractions has been shown to greatly aid detoxification and hormone synthesis.

Organic Raw Cacao
Peru

Organic Raw Cacao

The premium Australian Certified Organic raw cacao powder used in our blends is of the heirloom variety, criollo, grown in Peru. It is a rich source of magnesium and sulphur which helps with relaxation and promotes healthy hair, skin and nails. Full of magnesium and antioxidants, raw cacao has 2865 ORAC units per serve.

Organically Grown Vanilla Bean
Madagascar

Organically Grown Vanilla Bean

These orchid vines climb existing trees, poles or whatever they can find and produce deep green beans. When picked, they are quickly blanched in boiling water then set out to dry. Known for its mood enhancing properties and warm inviting aroma. Provides the blend with a delicious, crowd-pleasing taste! Our vanilla is the same A-grade beans that you will find in specialty cooking stores and delis.

Organic Stevia Extract
China

Organic Stevia Extract

High quality pure organic stevia provides just the right touch of sweetness without contributing unnecessary sugars to your waistline. Stevia is low GI and also has the added advantage of not feeding plaque on your teeth like sugar does.

Non-GMO Soy Lecithin

Non-GMO Soy Lecithin

We include a tiny amount of non-GMO soy lecithin in our whey protein blends - 0.1%. It is an emulsifier that’s needed for mixing, and it keeps the whey powder from bricking when mixed with liquid.

Recipes with Raw Cacao WPC

Raw Choc Berry Yo-Yos

Raw Choc Berry Yo-Yos

close
ingredients
  • 1/2 cup raw cashew nuts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons Bare Berries
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons coconut flour
directions

1. To make the cookies, process all of the cookie ingredients in a food processor until the mixture comes together. 2. Line a tray with baking paper. Divide the mixture into 8 balls and press onto the baking tray to make cookie shapes. Set aside in the freezer to set. 3. To make the chocolate filling, mix all of the filling ingredients together in a bowl until you get a smooth paste. You will need to slowly work the syrup and oil into the powders - it will take a bit of time to combine. I find it best to work the mixture together by continuously squashing it against the side of the bowl using the back of the spoon. 4. Remove the cookies from the freezer. Divide the chocolate filling into 4 balls and press each ball onto a cookie. Top each one with another cookie, pressing together. Store in the fridge or freezer.

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or sweetener of your choice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla paste
directions

1. Combine your thickshake ingredients in your food processor, and process until a creamy, smooth thickshake has formed. 2. In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the chocolate and stir until smooth. Divide the chocolate between the bottom of two large milkshake glasses, and follow with the shake. Done! 3. Hot but weird tip: It tastes particularly delicious warmed up in the microwave. Don’t ask me why I know this.

faqs

Why is Bare Blends NZ WPC better than other WPCs?

Bare Blends whey protein concentrate is produced in the pristine pollution and chemical free environment of New Zealand or Australia, widely regarded as producing some of the highest quality dairy in the world. These cows are grass-fed year round, and are not injected with the artificial hormones (rBST, rBGH) that are commonly found in US based whey proteins.

Is WPC suitable for lactose intolerant people?

Bare Blends WPC blends contain more lactose than our Native WPI, and is not as suitable for lactose intolerant people. Instead, we recommend our Native WPI blends for those with intolerances, as it has almost no lactose.

What is the best storage method?

The best method of storage is in a cool, dry location, and properly closed. Refrigeration should only be used when room temperature exceeds 27 degrees Celsius.

What is the shelf life?

Bare Blends' products have a 24-month shelf life from date of manufacture. The expiration date is clearly listed on the package. We are committed to keeping our batch sizes small to ensure maximum freshness of our products.

What are the serving sizes?

The recommended serving size is 30g, which equates to 3 tablespoons. Our serving sizes are an estimate for the average person, however, each individual will have different requirement for their optimal protein consumption. You may wish to experiment with the serving size until you find a quantity that suits you. For people consuming whey for weight management, consume 20-30g per serving For athletes aiming to increase lean muscle growth, or participating in strenuous exercise, consume 35g or more.

Is whey protein suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women?

Our whey protein blends use the highest quality wheys available, and don't include any artificial ingredients or high-level doses of synthesised amino acids. It should be an acceptable source of protein during pregnancy for healthy women without dairy allergens. As pregnancy is extremely personalised, we do recommend that prior to taking whey protein, pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult a physician to be sure whey protein is right for them.

Is whey protein suitable for children?

Although we use only the highest quality ingredients in all our blends, with nothing artificial or even 'natural' flavours, unfortunately we are unable to provide dietary advice for children under the age of 16. Therefore, we must recommend you seek the professional opinion of your family health care physician.

Isn’t whey protein just for athletes and bodybuilders?

No, absolutely not. Whey protein has long been the protein supplementation of choice for athletes and bodybuilders because it is the most easily absorbed, high protein source available. But protein is important for everyone, not just athletes and bodybuilders, and can be incorporated to almost any diet to support a healthy lifestyle!

Can I use WPC as meal replacement?

Yes, protein shakes can be used as meal replacements, especially if blended with nut milk, dairy milk, or coconut water and nuts/fruits/veggies. This will make a satiating smoothie that will keep you feeling full and provide you with nutrients and energy throughout the day. We do of course recommend a healthy wholefood diet in conjunction with our supplements, and at least a minimal amount of exercise per day so that you can make the most out of our protein and it's lean-muscle building and weight-management attributes.

Is our whey protein powder organic?

While not certified organic, our whey has all the advantages of 100% natural pastures. The milk for our whey proteins is derived from cows that are grass-fed and graze year-round on natural pastures. It is GMO-free, hormone-treatment-free, pesticide-free and undergoes minimal processing.

Is whey a raw product?

Due to regulation, all commercial powdered dairy products are legally required to undergo heat pasteurisation in order to be sold. The whey used in our products is minimally processed using low heat resulting in the full range of biologically active protein components to be maintained in their native forms.
