Whey protein (Power Whey) is the cornerstone of our various protein supplements.
Whey is a by-product of cheese manufacturing. In its native state, it is approximately 11% protein, 87% carbohydrates (lactose) and 2% fat. It takes nearly 100lbs of whey to produce 8 lbs of Power Whey. Power Whey is isolated using a very gentle cross flow microfiltration, ultrafiltration and diafiltration process to remove the unwanted components of whey (fat and lactose) and retain the vital components (the protein, including all of its whey fractions).
Power Whey contains a generous amount of all the essential amino acids. It is especially high in the branched chain amino acids and the conditionally essential amino acid l-glutamine. There is over 17 grams of glutamine per 100 grams of protein in the Power Whey Isolate.
What is Xtreme Power Whey?
Xtreme Power Whey is a whey protein that is isolated using a very gentle microfiltration, ultrafiltration, and diafiltration process to remove the unwanted components of whey (fat and lactose) and retain the vital components (the protein including all of its whey fractions).
Xtreme Power Whey contains a generous amount of all the essential amino acids. It is especially high in branched chain amino acids and the conditionally essential amino acid L-glutamine.
How is Xtreme Power Whey Different From Other Proteins?
Xtreme Power Whey is derived from a sweet dairy whey (many whey proteins are derived from acid whey). This means that Xtreme Power Whey is a non-denatured and complete whey protein supplement. Xtreme Power Whey's special isolation process yields a complete whey fraction profile including: beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, glycomacropeptides, immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, bovine serum albumin.
Does Xtreme Power Whey include Glutamine?
Xtreme Power Whey has a very impressive amino acid profile. As far as glutamine content, Power Whey contains a remarkable level of naturally occurring glutamine. There is over 17 grams of glutamine per 100 grams of protein in the isolate.
Does Xtreme Power Whey include Glutamine Peptides?
Don't be fooled! "Glutamine Peptides" is not glutamine. It is hydrolyzed wheat protein. What's the difference? Well for starters, hydrolyzed wheat protein only contains 30% glutamine as part of its amino acid profile. Some companies add a small amount of hydrolyzed wheat protein and combine it with naturally occurring glutamine in the whey protein in an attempt to mislead you into believing that their product contains a significant amount of added glutamine.
For example, in a 50 gram serving of whey protein there is about 8 grams of naturally occuring glutamine. The company will then add 2 grams of hydrolyzed wheat protein and make an implied claim that there is 10 grams of added glutamine in their product! If a product you are currently using is marketed in this manner be skeptical. What else is this company misleading you about? We avoid using hydrolyzed wheat protein (glutamine peptides) in our products as it is a common allergen and a cheaper and inferior source of protein and glutamine.
Does Xtreme Power Whey Contain Lactose?
Lactose is a milk sugar that causes bloating and stomach discomfort in some individuals. Xtreme Power Whey is exceptionally low in lactose. There is less than 2% lactose in the isolate. To put this in perspective, a single serving of the isolate has less than 0.5 grams of lactose. In comparison a 12oz glass of 2% milk has 21 grams of lactose.
How is Xtreme Power Whey Sweetened?
Xtreme Power Whey is sweetened with stevia leaf extract and contains no artificial flavours, sweeteners, or colours. We avoided using sucralose or any other artificial sweeteners like aspartame and acesulfame potassium, it was chosen because we wanted the best and safest choice for you!
Xtreme Power Whey Isolate All Natural is also available for individuals that do not want any artificial ingredients including sweeteners, colours, or flavours!
How Much Protein Should I Consume On A Daily Basis?
As a general rule your daily intake of protein should be at least one gram for every kilogram of bodyweight. However, many studies have shown that active individuals, strength athletes, and very active individuals benefit from additional protein. Please consult below as a quick reference of our recommendations.
