WE ARE COMMITTED TO...
Being Fully Traceable
As an added benefit of using small herds and utilizing family farm co-ops, we have access to each individual cow through a unique identifier. This identifier is recorded in a centrally managed database and monitored to ensure we know precisely where each batch of milk came from down to each cow herself.
This is yet another assurance we offer of our consistency season to season, and how you can rest assured knowing you are getting the most nutritious Grassfed Whey on the planet.
Preserving Quality via Minimally & Cold Processing Only
Protein is fragile and is quickly cooked past nutritional benefits when processed at high temperatures. Unfortunately, the buzz word "undenatured" is used prolifically and to a very loose usage. Another term too often abused is"cold-processed."
New Zealand is widely marketed as the premier exporter of "grass-fed" whey, is the largest exporter of dairy products globally, and the market shareholder of China's dairy supply, is not the pinnacle of quality its marketing would have you believe.
The vast majority of their whey exports (different NZ regulations for diary marked for export) have been exposed to 400⁰ F plus temperatures during processing to optimize shelf like & stability while in transit, instantly rendering all micronutrients cooked & denatured. In contrast, we take care to control our processing temperatures to assure you our micro-nutrients & Protein Fractions are 100% intact.
Ensuring Fidelity via Fully Pasteurized Grassfed Milk
In compliance with food safety regulations, all the Grassfed milk used to make our whey is pasteurized (Vat Method - Low Temp Long Time) & to ensure it is safe for your enjoyment. Also, each batch of milk is tested repeatedly from pick-up through processing to ensure it contains no impurities and meets the highest industry standards. Consuming products from "raw/unpasteurized" milk is extremely dangerous and can lead to severe illnesses.
Sourcing ONLY from Certified Sustainable Farms
The quality of our products reflects our relationship with our world. We are continually striving to do better, be better, and achieve a genuinely sustainable milk supply with a minimal carbon footprint.
This is why we meticulously source our whey from farms certified by the Sustainable Dairy Assurance Scheme (SDAS), subsidiary of Origin Green, Ireland's national sustainability initiative, and are a massive supporter of the Net Zero initiatives around carbon emissions.
