Decadent Chocolate Whey Isolate
Our Grass-Fed, hormone-free, unflavored, non-GMO, undenatured Whey Protein Isolate delivers the crucial amino acids for supporting cellular repair, growth, and glutathione production. Our Whey Isolate is cold processed from raw milk, so it only gets pasteurized (at 161° F for 15 seconds) one time at the end of the production process. This gives it a far superior amino-acid profile compared to most whey proteins pasteurized twice.
Dark Chocolate Whey Protein Isolate Powder is a perfect blend of 3 high-quality ingredients;
- Whey Protein Isolate (hormone-free, non-GMO)
- Organic Cacao for a delicious dark chocolate flavor (Extra-rich)
- Organic Stevia Extract to add a lightly sweet taste (debittered)
Whey is nature's perfect protein, boasting a 104 Biological Value (BV). BV is the ability of the body to use nutrients. The higher the number, the more useful to the body. Our undenatured Whey Protein Isolate has a higher BV than an egg.
Organic Cacao - Extra Rich
Cacao, "the food of the gods," has been traditionally used for centuries to boost energy and enhance mood.
With over 300 identifiable chemical compounds, cacao remains one of the most complex and pleasurable foods on the planet.
Cacao contains one of the highest antioxidants on the planet, exceeding red wine, green tea, and many other exotic fruits and vegetables. Our Heirloom Trinitario Extra Rich Organic Cacao powder is a mineral magnesium source. Recent scientific studies have shown that cacao may assist with healthful blood flow to the heart, brain, and other organs. It has also been shown to support healthy blood glucose levels.
Organic Stevia Extract (Debittered)
Stevia is a natural herb native to South America. It is a small shrub-like perennial plant that belongs to the sunflower (Asteraceae) family. Stevia has been in wide use in South America, Japan, and many other parts of the world. Our Stevia Extract Powder has been enzyme-treated (debittered) to remove the bitter steviosides and improve the overall taste. This is a 100% natural herbal extract with nothing added.
Superior Amino Acid Profile
Our Whey Protein Isolate powder is undeniably high in whey protein fractions, including immunoglobulin, lactoferrin, and glycomacropeptides. This is the purest form of Whey Protein Isolate on the market because we haven't added anything to it, resulting in a very clean tasting Whey Isolate that mixes easily. The lack of distinct flavor makes it great for people who dislike typical protein powders' taste.
Several whey components, including the immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, lactoferricin, sphingolipids, lactoperoxidase, and glycomacropeptides, may inhibit the growth of a wide range of bacteria, fungi, yeast, and protozoa.
The body's glutathione level is a pretty good indicator of overall health and your immune system's ability to support well-being and the aging process. Whey has a very high content of sulfur-containing amino acids (such as cysteine) necessary for glutathione biosynthesis. And studies have shown that you can effectively raise your glutathione levels through the consumption of whey protein.
Our Undenatured Whey is from Grass-Fed Cows on U.S. farms
Heart health: Whey proteins may inhibit the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE). I'm sure you've heard of the class of blood pressure-lowering drugs called ACE inhibitors that do the same thing. A combination of whey powder components may provide this blood pressure lowering benefit and vascular relaxation without drugs' side effects. Other proteins in whey may reduce blood platelets' stickiness and thrombosis risk, which can trigger heart attack and stroke. The consumption of grass-fed whey protein may also help support healthy lipid levels.
In addition to minerals necessary for bone growth, whey contains a protein called lactoferrin, which may be associated with a wide range of benefits, including supporting a healthy immune and inflammatory response. Research has now determined that lactoferrin can increase new bone production, which could positively impact the long-term effects of osteoporosis and non-healing bone fractures.
May support your gut and your immune system
Prebiotics are foods or compounds fermented by bacteria in the colon after entering the system. You can either supply your colon with additional beneficial bacteria through the use of probiotics, or you can feed the healthy bacteria already present with specific compounds to help them multiply in number and become more dominant. When used combined with a good probiotic, whey proteins and their other components act as a prebiotic to provide added assurance that your "second immune system" (your gut) is getting the help it needs.
Some possible traditional uses of undenatured Whey Protein Isolate Powder may include:
- 20 grams of high-quality protein per 30-gram serving

- It comes from grass-fed cows
- No hormones or antibiotics
- Support a healthy immune response
- Rich in amino acids
- Possesses anti-aging properties
- Cold microfiltration & ultrafiltration process
- Increasing energy levels

- Excellent source of cysteine for maximum Glutathione production
- High concentration of BCAA's (branched-chain amino acids)
- Enhancing the feeling of youth
- Excellent for weight management - Lots of protein keeps you full longer
- High protein efficiency ratio
- Boosts sports performance
- Being low in calories
- Speeding recovery from exercise
- Helping build lean muscles
- Excellent source of glutamine & sulfur amino acids
- rBGH & rBST free
- No additives, fillers, artificial sweeteners, flavors, coloring, or preservatives
Protein Profile (Percent of Total Protein):
- Beta-Lactoglobulin - 50%
- Alpha-Lactalbumin - 22%
- Bovine Serum Albumin - 2.0%
- Immunoglobulin - 4.0%
- Lactoferrin - <1.0%

Our Dark Chocolate Whey Isolate is instantized, with a small amount of non-GMO sunflower lecithin, which means it will mix in liquid much easier than whey concentrates, which are not instantized.
Suggested Use: Mix 5 level tablespoons (30 grams) with 8-10 ounces of cold water or skim milk and thoroughly mix in a blender, shaker, or with a spoon for 20-30 seconds. For best results, consume 1-2 servings daily, with one serving post-exercise. It can also be blended into your favorite smoothie.
