All Natural Whey Protein

If I’m allergic to dairy can I use whey?
When you have a food allergy it is the protein in the food you’re reacting too. The two proteins found in milk are casein and whey. Whey protein makes up a very small fraction of milk as a whole and is considerably less allergenic than casein. Casein is what most sufferers react to but if you have a severe allergy, consider some of our Rice Protein or Vegetarian Protein as a great dairy alternative.
What are health benefits of using whey?
Whey has a remarkable range of scientifically proven health benefits including immune regulation, anti-microbial activity, cardiovascular benefits, weight management, longevity, age-related muscle wasting (sarcopenia) to name just a few.
Why is Precision All Natural Whey sourced from New Zealand?
New Zealand proteins are renowned for being some of the cleanest and purest in the world. The cattle are pasture fed and raised without the use of hormones, including rBGH. The milk supply is then screened for over 250 contaminants including antibiotics, fertilizers, pesticides and PCBs.
Can whey protein be used during pregnancy or while breast feeding? Is it safe for children?
Yes. “Precision All Natural Whey Protein” is safe for all three. Whey is first and foremost a protein and as such is safe to use so long as there are not any questionable co-factors added.
I consume enough protein, why should I use whey?
A common misconception is that we consume too much protein. Many segments of the population (especially seniors) are often protein deficient. Others consume questionable proteins that are too high in fat or heavily processed that do not offer much nutritional value. Whey is not only clean and healthy but is also very convenient to use. Blend it with a beverage of your choice add some healthy EFAs and fruit and you’ve made a healthy beverage or meal in under a minute.

All Natural Whey Protein Isolate

Why should I use whey protein with so many other protein options available?
Whey is regarded by many health experts and researchers as a superior protein. It is a complete protein loaded with both essential and non-essential amino acids, the richest known source of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) and the most rapidly absorbed and most efficient muscle building protein known.
What differentiates a whey isolate from a whey concentrate?
Whey isolates and concentrates undergo different methods of filtration. These differing methods make whey isolate more rapidly absorbed with more protein and less carbs, fat, and cholesterol.
Can I use whey protein if I’m lactose intolerant?
Whey is very low in lactose. Whey concentrates like our Whey Protein has 2-5% lactose and most lactose intolerant people are fine with it. If you are very sensitive try our Whey Isolate instead. It has from 0.1 to 0.3% lactose or for a lactose free option try our Rice Protein or Vegetarian Protein.
Can I use your Whey Isolate when I’m on a sodium or cholesterol-reduced diet?
Whey isolates are very low in both cholesterol and sodium. Health Canada suggests no more than 2300mg of sodium per day and our Whey Isolate contains only 70mg of sodium per serving. Not only is this very low relative to many other foods but the ratio of potassium to sodium is 3:1. While sodium raises blood pressure, potassium lowers it, so a dietary ratio in favour of potassium is ideal.
Our Whey Isolate contains only trace amounts of cholesterol; so low in fact Canadian labelling regulations allow us to state that it is cholesterol free.

I’m not an athlete so why should I use a whey isolate?
Although whey isolates are commonly consumed by athletes it can be used by anyone regardless of their level of activity. For those especially interested in a low calorie, low fat, low carb option whey isolates are the logical choice.

All Natural Vegetarian Protein

Is your All Natural Vegetarian Protein a complete protein?
Yes. The six vegetable proteins combined yield a complete and balanced amino acid profile and all the essential amino acids, making it a complete protein.
Aren’t vegetable proteins difficult to digest?
The yellow pea protein isolate, sprouted brown rice concentrate and hemp protein concentrate are all very easy on the digestive system. A common reason for gastric distress with some vegetable proteins is due to their high carb content. At 3 grams of carbs per serving (2 grams of which are fibre) we have one of the lowest carb counts on the market.
As an athlete why should I use a vegetarian protein?
This protein not only provides all the essential amino acids, making it a complete protein, but it is also an excellent source of BCAAs, which are an essential requirement of athletes.
Is the All Natural Vegetarian Protein only intended for athletes?
Absolutely not. Non animal-based proteins provide documented health benefits that everyone can benefit from. Varying your protein choices is always preferred to having the same proteins over and over.
I’m allergic to a number of proteins. Is this vegetarian protein safe to use?
Absolutely. All of these proteins are low in their allergenicity (i.e. allergy potential). We’ve intentionally avoided some of the more allergenic proteins like soy.

All Natural Rice Protein

How can you get a protein powder from rice?
The process uses natural enzymes that digest the carbohydrate portion and leave the protein, with no traces of additives or chemicals. It’s a wholegrain rice protein, with the entire brown rice kernel being used in the processing. It’s also worth noting this is from SPROUTED brown rice. Sprouted grains are higher in protein than the non-sprouted forms. In the case of brown rice, sprouting makes it a complete protein whereas non-sprouted rice is incomplete.
Why would I want to use sprouted brown rice protein?
Increasingly more individuals are finding they react to proteins. Rice protein is regarded as one of the least allergenic proteins and is well suited for those with numerous food intolerances and allergies.
Is sprouted brown rice protein a good source of protein?
Yes. This organic protein has a complete array of essential amino acids and makes for an excellent source of protein.
Why were chicory, flax and bromelain added?
Chicory is effective in regulating blood sugar and is rich in inulin, a natural probiotic fibre that supports a healthy probiotic balance.
Flax seed oil is a great source of the omega-3 essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid.

Won’t I get too much protein in my diet if I consume protein powders?
No. A common misconception is that adding a protein shake to your diet will result in unnecessary stress on the body, most notably the liver and kidneys. Studies have shown that healthy individuals can consume up to 1.2 grams of protein per pound of body weight safely. Adding 1 serving of a protein powder to your diet will still be well below this threshold.
