The Benefits Of Whey Protein Isolate

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 isolate 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.

Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate
New Zealand

Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate

Whey protein isolate (WPI) is a high-protein filtered milk product containing very little fats, lactose or carbohydrates. Our high-quality WPI is sourced from New Zealand, where the dairy farming practices and pristine environment are unparalleled. Our whey undergoes less acidification and pasteurisation than others, resulting in a superior essential amino acid profile.

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.

faqs

Is whey protein isolate suitable for lactose intolerant people?

Bare Blends whey protein isolate blends contains almost no lactose, and are suitable for lactose intolerant people. The NZ whey protein concentrate contains significantly more lactose, and is not as suitable for those with intolerances.

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.

What is the amino acid profile of WPI?

Whey protein is one of the few sources that naturally contain all 20 amino acids, making it a complete protein. Bare Blends’ whey protein isolate blends have a superior amino acid profile, and are especially undenatured due to low-temperature processing. They provide our bodies with the most functional protein to recover, repair and build muscles, and also boosting our immunity. The essential amino acids in each WPI blend can be viewed in the nutritional table on the product page.

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 WPI 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.
