About the Protein Manufacturer Sources
Whey Protein Isolate Manufacturing
This is one of the most popular proteins, both in the health and fitness industries, and is created by separating the components within milk. Not only is it the purest form of whey protein, but it also contains less than 1% lactose, and has zero fat and carbohydrates. We produce high-quality whey protein isolates that are easily digestible, providing great nutritional benefits after strenuous workouts. We produce isolates that contain large portions of protein content while simultaneously restricting carbohydrates, fat, and lactose. We’ve specially designed this formula to benefit athletes, bodybuilders, and mass/strength gainers. As a whey manufacturer, we offer private label options for our formulas and allow you to submit your own formula for production.
Whey Protein Concentrate Manufacturing
This is the most common form of whey protein and is the by-product of cheese production. We manufacture our whey protein concentrate through the process of drying out the expulsion of adequate non-protein constituents from purified whey. In this way, the end result is a dry powder that contains 25% or more protein. We remove non-protein constituents by precipitation, filtration, and/or dialysis. We can also utilize controlled pH-changes to adjust the acidity of our whey protein concentrate.
Collagen Protein Manufacturing
This protein has been receiving a lot of attention recently, particularly for those looking to improve their digestive and immune system health, and is specifically made from amino acids (glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine). The collagen peptide supplements can be commonly collected from ox-like connective tissue, fish, or marine collagen. Not only does it aid in weight loss, but has been shown to improve skin texture, reduce inflammation, and have an effect on gastrointestinal (GI) health. During the manufacturing process, we take great care to ensure that this product is protected from sunlight and moisture as it needs a dry environment.
Casein Protein Manufacturing
Casein protein is popular among individuals looking to prevent their bodies from pulling essential amino acids out of muscle tissue. By providing your body with an additional source of amino acids, it prevents the breakdown of gained muscle mass, which can help further fitness goals. This slow digesting protein also aids in muscle recovery and helps you feel full for longer. It’s derived from skim milk through an acidifying process. The casein curd is isolated from the whey and then cleansed and allowed to dry out.
Egg Protein Powder Manufacturing
Eggs have long been touted as one of the most complete sources of protein and have long been used to promote health and wellness within our bodies. They provide a source for the nine basic amino acids that human bodies don’t naturally produce. Quality egg powder closely resembles milk powder and maintains all of its nutrients including calcium, potassium, sodium, and protein. It also has the second most elevated source of leucine (promoting muscle growth and the reduction of muscle deterioration from age) aside from whey protein.
Beef Protein Powder Manufacturing
We begin by boiling beef in large tanks, which results in the fluid around it being filled with protein and amino acids. It’s then skimmed to remove sugars and fats, leaving a concentrated solution of protein. From there we dry out the liquid which leaves us with a high protein powder. Many individuals have found this to be a great substitute when they have an aversion or allergy to whey protein, and it is often included in paleo diets.
Chicken Protein Powder Manufacturing
Our chicken protein powder is made in a similar fashion to our beef protein powder and is allergen-free, easily soluble, low in taste, highly digestible, and contains no dairy, soy, fat, sugar, or carbohydrates. It can be used in its powder form to make protein shakes or be added to other recipes to boost protein content, but it can also be made into a tablet or capsule for supplemental use. It’s regularly used by health-conscious individuals who actively engage in sports, workouts, or other types of exercise.
Fish Protein Powder Manufacturing
Similar to both beef and chicken protein powder, FPP is created when fish is boiled in large tanks. This results in a liquid that is filled with more protein than what was originally in the fish itself. From there the liquid is spray-dried into a powder that can be used for protein smoothies and other recipes or can be put into a tablet or capsule form. It’s important to keep FPP at an appropriate cooler temperature in order to maintain its shelf stability. For this reason, it’s recommended that you store your FPP within the fridge.
Bone Broth Protein Powder Manufacturing
This protein powder has seen a surge of popularity lately as it contains glutamine, a beneficial amino acid, that aids in digestion and is believed to assist in weight loss by helping to suppress your appetite. In addition, bone broth protein powder is dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly, which makes it a great alternative for those looking to maintain a paleo diet or who have a dairy intolerance. The majority of bone broth protein is made from chicken bones and is manufactured in a similar fashion as chicken protein powder.
