Chances are you’ve come across protein powders claiming to contain New Zealand whey protein and wondered, ‘What makes this whey better than others?’ Well, if you have two minutes, what follows explains why New Zealand whey stands head and shoulders above other sources of whey.

Growing Conditions

New Zealand is an island located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The moderate temperatures, fertile soil, excellent rainfall and yearly average of 2,000 hours of sunshine, provides ideal growing conditions for grass. This allows for cattle to flourish. In fact, New Zealand’s primary export is dairy.

Cattle graze throughout the year on grass, as nature intended, cycling through pastures across the land. On average, they spend 90% of their time roaming outside in pastures during the year.

Strict Regulations

In addition to New Zealand’s topnotch growing conditions, the country has stringent laws regarding herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics and growth hormones.

Due to New Zealand’s remote location, the land is free from many pests and diseases, which plague other parts of the world. Nevertheless, the New Zealand government prohibits the use of herbicides, pesticides and antibiotics. Additionally, growth hormones (rBST and rBGH), which are used on cows to increase milk production, are illegal in New Zealand. This allows for the purest milk to derive whey from.

How Can New Zealand Whey Get Better?

As I’m sure you’re well aware, protein manufacturers offer a wide variety of flavours for their products. This requires added flavouring and sweeteners – as whey, on its own, doesn’t taste all that great.

As a result, many companies turn towards artificial flavours and sweeteners to get their products to taste more appealing to consumers. These artificial substances are generally less expensive than natural alternatives. As well, using natural substances to flavour whey is arguably harder to do so when compared to artificial ones.

You see, there’s an art and science to creating a favourable flavour profile for whey protein that comes with experience. Fortunately, the food scientists at Perfect Sports have been doing this for almost two decades in their cGMP, Health Canada regulated manufacturing facility.
