Ask The Supplement Guru: Is Organic Whey Protein Worth The Money?

Trying to decide whether or not to splurge on organic whey? The Supplement Guru’s insight will make your decision whey easy!


Q

Is it worth paying a little extra for “organic” protein powder? Are there any additional benefits to using it?

Let me start by saying that I’m a big believer in organic dairy products like milk, cottage cheese, and Greek yogurt—especially if they come from well-raised, grass-fed cows. I also like organic fruits and vegetables, which are worth the extra cash because less pesticides are used. But organic whey protein powder? Not so fast.

Some readers might find my thumbs-down on organic whey contrary to my thumbs-up on organic dairy, since whey protein comes from milk. After all, whey protein powder manufactured from organic, grass-fed milk must be better than plain-old whey, right? Not necessarily!

The Fat is Where It’s at

First, you need to consider what exactly makes milk from grass-fed cows better for you. It’s the fat! Organically raised, grass-fed cows have higher amounts of the all-important and essential omega-3 fats, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and vitamin E (a fat-soluble vitamin) than their grain-fed counterparts, and these nutrients are found in the milk fat.

But whey is processed to isolate the protein from the carbs and the fat. In fact, a quality whey protein isolate has close to 100 percent of the fat removed. This means that if a protein-powder manufacturer is using whey protein from organic milk, nearly all of the extra omega-3 fats, CLA, and vitamin E have been removed during the manufacturing process anyway!

The protein in milk from grass-fed cows has the same amino acids and structure as protein in grain-fed milk. Amino acids are amino acids.

When you look at it this way, there is little sense in paying more for whey protein from organic milk given the fact that all the additional health benefits are completely removed in the manufacturing process.

As for the protein content, the protein in milk from grass-fed cows has the same amino acids and structure as protein in grain-fed milk. Amino acids are amino acids.

But What About Those Pesky Pesticides?

You might have also heard that organic whey protein is free of antibiotics, hormones, and pesticides. But due to the rigorous processing that whey protein already undergoes to isolate the whey protein from everything else in the milk, none of those contaminants should be left behind to make it into the jug of protein powder you’re buying.

Furthermore, none of those chemicals alter the structure of the whey protein molecules that are isolated from milk protein. So, again, there’s no difference between regular whey protein and grass-fed protein in regards to any contaminants.

Are You Wasting Money on Whey?

If you prefer to use grass-fed whey protein powder for ethical reasons, then by all means, fork out a little extra cash for the stuff. If, however, you think it’ll offer up superior health benefits, or you’re concerned about antibiotics and hormones, your money may be going to waste.

A high-quality whey protein isn’t going to contain any contaminants, and if you are at all concerned with what could be in your whey, stick with a whey protein isolate.

Don’t get sucked into this trap and waste your money on organic whey protein. A high-quality whey protein isn’t going to contain any contaminants, and if you are at all concerned with what could be in your whey, stick with a whey protein isolate, as it contains the lowest possible amount of hormones, antibiotics, or pesticides.

Question by Daniel: Are protein shakes worth the money for the results and does it actually work?
Im starting going to the gym in a few days and just want to know wether theirs any point in buying some protein or not. Im 17 next weekend, I am quite skinny and the type of person who could eat and eat and eat but not put weight on, I weigh around 9 stone and want to build muscle but it seems impossible because I’m so skinny there’s nothing to work on.

how to raise money for bodybuilding?

Question by Jame: how to raise money for bodybuilding?
I’m a student at uni on SAAS loan so money doesn’t stretch that far the best of times, let alone trying to afford to keep up bodybuilding. I am aiming to get pretty massive in size and need the funds – so apart from getting a job (CV is in the works) has anyone got any ideas how to raise some extra cash? Has anyone had any successful methods – not just funding for bodybuilding, but other self-charity reasons. Am pretty sure I won’t get away raising money for cancer research and take the money for my self!!! Any suggestions would be great!
Ideas please, not offers of loans. Data protection, fraud and all that jazz. Cheers.

I sell random stuff around the house for extra cash from Craigslist. You can even start selling your family’s and roomies stuff, and split some of the cash with them. Aside from that i would suggest you get a job that will help you in more ways than just money. For example, get a job as a front desk clerk at a nice gym, and then take advantage of the free gym membership.
