Goat-Milk Chocolate Protein
Double Bonded Chocolate
The goats at Mt. Capra Farms in Washington State are free range allowing them to enjoy life the way nature intended. The food supply offered to each goat is free of pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones and antibiotics. Their goats have a laid back lifestyle and the incredible nutritional quality of their milk is captured in their gentle and unique production methods and transferred into the products they produce.
What is Goat-Milk Protein?
Our Goat-Milk Protein is a premium quality goat-milk protein powder. It is minimally processed from goat milk collected directly from farms to preserve it’s original composition. Most other milk protein powders are made from cow milk and use several harsh processing steps including heating at high temperature. Goat-Milk Protein contains all essential amino acids for optimal health and is tolerated well by most people. Goat-Milk Protein is partially predigested (lacto-fermented). This process assists digestion and absorption while providing the body with beneficial probiotics and enzymes.
This is the highest quality goat-milk protein powder available. It is made from goats-milk that contains no antibiotics or growth hormones. Goat-milk Protein is high in amino acids and is a complete protein source. These building blocks of protein are crucial for optimal health. Goat-Milk Protein provides a balanced combination of whey protein and milk protein. Most animal protein supplements (from cows milk) only provide one part of the proteins found in milk. We are convinced that a combination of milk protein and whey protein is superior. Goat-Milk Protein also provides a favorable ratio of potassium to sodium.
Why do we need protein?
Proteins are the building blocks of human life, essential for normal growth. Proteins have many important chemicals including immunoglobulins and enzymes. Proteins form the foundation of muscles, bones, skin, hair, blood and heart. Lack of dietary protein can hinder these foundational areas. Proteins contain approximately 22 amino acids. Eight of those amino acids are essential because the body cannot produce them, therefore, they must be obtained from our diet. Goat-Milk Protein contains all of the essential amino acids for optimal health and is tolerated well by most people.
Goat-Milk Protein vs. Soy Protein
Goat-Milk Protein is a source of complete protein. This provides many advantages over most popular protein powders on the market, because they are typically derived from soy and low in one or more of the amino acids even though overall protein content is high. In addition, there is much research on soy right now that is negative, and many feel that there is too much soy in our diets today (see The Whole Soy Story in our book section.) Goat-Milk Protein is a wonderful source of premium protein powder.
Goat-Milk Protein is minimally processed
Most other milk protein powders are made from cows-milk and though they claim to be minimally processed they use several invasive processing steps including heating at high temperatures. One of the most important production methods used with our product is the Refractance Window Drying machine, a drying method that uses conduction, convection and infra-red which applies minimal and variable heat sources to gently dry the product and preserve the original integrity that keeps it as close to nature as possible. This unique drying process allows the powerful probiotics and digestive enzymes to thrive from the lacto-fermentation process. The naturally occurring probiotics and enzymes make Goat-Milk Protein the perfect choice for young and old alike.
