180 Nutrition's Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) in this delicious coconut flavour is derived from pasture raised, hormone free New Zealand cows giving you a clean and pure, high quality protein. One serve of grass-fed WPI can make a great addition to your diet if you are very active and looking to increase your protein intake. Why use WPI over WPC (Whey Protein Concentrate)? Great question, as the information on the internet can certainly be confusing!
180 Nutrition use WPI as it is very low lactose and has a great amino acid breakdown, and is also very high in glutathione (a super antioxidant), which many people have a deficiency of. WPC still contains milk solids and lactose (which can be very problematic for many peoples digestion) making it much higher in carbohydrates and sugar (lactose), which isn’t beneficial because this can affect your blood sugar and insulin levels leading to weight gain and longer term health issues.
180 Nutriton Grass-Fed WPI has:
- 27g Protein Per Serve
- Hormone & Antibiotic Free
- Low Lactose & Low Cholesterol
- Free of Wheat, Yeast & Gluten
- Cold Filtered, Not Heat Treated
- Clean flavour
All of the natural ingredients in this protein powder are grown here in Australia, and the whey protein isolate powder is imported from our neighbours in New Zealand.
"Navigating the many types of protein powders available is tricky business. Many brands are derived from feed-lot, grain-fed cows (also often fed GMOs), highly-processed soy proteins and contain franken-sugars, fructose, maltodextrin starches (aggravate blood sugars and the GIT), additives and more yuk ingredients. Most also contain absolutely no plant fibre, good fats or micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), so nutritionally they are incomplete and not at all reflective of a well-rounded, whole food meal. Thankfully, 180 Nutrition's protein powders offer balanced nutrition and do what we need them to do—provide a sustaining, nutritious supplement, and here’s the clincher, that actually tastes good. It’s just got to taste good, right?
I love that they have vegan AND grass-fed whey protein options (to suit everybody) and that they couple their proteins with nourishing whole food to make them nutritionally complete (so much more than just protein). I’m a fan of their ethos in general and they’re an Aussie company that I know and trust. Their 180 Protein Superfoods are a simple, balanced blend of clean proteins, flaxseed, almonds, sunflower kernels, shredded coconut, coconut flour, cocoa (chocolate flavour only), chia Seeds, sesame Seeds, psyllium Husks, stevia. Their protein powders contains loads of essential minerals and B vitamins from plant sources for stable energy and mood, healthy fats and plant-based fibre. They are also super low in sugar (and fructose-friendly), so they will keep you full for longer, without a mid-morning blood sugar crisis.
Adding a serve to my son's breakfast has made all the difference to his focus and mood, whilst still a quick and convenient meal for ‘those days’ when cooking eggs is out of the question."
