Amino Acids

Defined as a complete protein, whey protein contains all the essential amino acids in an optimum blend for human consumption. The human body needs amino acids to help grow and repair muscle and connective tissue, synthesize enzymes and provide energy.

Whey protein also contains bioactive components that may offer protection against infections and viruses, enhance immunity and positively affect cardiovascular health and muscle synthesis.

To complement the nutritional benefits, we have created functional attributes in our whey proteins to provide a wide range of uses in food and beverage applications.
