Whey-Hey: The Organic Protein Company

Looking for a way to maximise your fitness regime? Try the Organic Protein Company’s hotly anticipated Whey protein powder.

Founded by Daniel Whitehead and touted by numerous health experts and fitness professionals as their go-to protein powder, the Organic Protein Company make Whey protein using organic milk from grass-fed cows which are able to roam free on organic pastures which have not been tainted by man-made chemicals, fertilisers and pesticides.

Daniel decided to set up the Organic Protein Company after his own fruitless endeavours to find an organic whey protein powder. As someone who believes in buying and growing as much of his own food from organic sources as possible Daniel didn’t want to forgo his ethical belief when it came to protein powder. Rather, he decided to take matters into his own hands and source his own, hence the Organic Protein Company was born.  His search took him as far as sunny California where the cows are bred and his protein is sourced.

What’s great about the Organic Protein Company’s ethos is that it is all about quality rather than quantity – they are ethically sound and believe in producing a sustainable and natural product which delivers the desired results. The Organic Protein Company is definitely a welcomed addition to an industry which is saturated with health fads packed with preservatives and additives which do anything but enhance your health.

Although the whey protein comes from cows in California, the Organic protein company have gone to great lengths to minimise their carbon footprint. For every packet that is bought, they promise to plant a tree in it’s place to help combat emissions.

The protein is packaged in pouches made from 100% recyclable materials and the scoops are made from 100% recycled plastic. 25p from every sale is also donated to Compassion in World Farming in aim to help increase the welfare standards of farming for animals around the world. This ensures that the cows are free to roam with plenty of space and fresh air, as nature intended so they can thrive and grow.  Whilst the company is still only in their infancy, they are making constant strides to improve the sustainability of their product.

When it comes to nutritional content, as the protein is completely natural it has none of the added man-made nasties which so many other powders do so is great for sculpting lean muscle, losing body fat and speeding up muscle recovery. Their protein powder also makes the thickest and creamiest smoothies, giving them a yoghurt-like consistency – perfect if you want a filling breakfast to see you through your morning or great as a post workout pick-me-up.

Well Aware recommends: Try adding a scoop of The Organic Protein Company Whey Protein to your morning smoothie. Mix frozen berries with a handful of spinach or kale, half an avocado, a teaspoon of cinnamon and coconut oil, a dash of water and maca then simply blend and devour – perfection!
