What Does Indentured Mean
Denatured proteins- unfortunately, with almost every single whey protein, there’s a break down in the protein because of the processing that companies use. Fortunately for us, Isagenix isn’t one of them, which I’ll explain in a second. When talking about whey protein and how it’s processed or created, not all processes and whey proteins are created equally.
Whey is the byproduct of cheese making. Most companies use salts, enzymes, acids or heat to separate out the curds from the whey and casein. These 4 processes absolutely change whey and casein. This type is called “denatured” meaning the proteins are altered through chemical or physical means so that some of its original properties are lost or diminished. There’s another way in which the curds and whey and casein can be separated. It’s a patented, exclusive process called cold, ion exchange micro-filtration. This process does not use the above-mentioned 4 processes. This process is how our Isagenix undenatured whey concentrate, milk protein concentrate and low-heat non-fat dry milk is created. This process is incredibly expensive but protects the whey in its natural God-given state- peptides, amino acids etc. and keeps it undenatured. These undenatured proteins are then cold air dried in a huge spray-drying drum, using no heat and then it’s carefully sealed in crates.
Our whey comes from New Zealand, free-range cows that are exclusively grass fed (free from herbicides, pesticides etc.), milked and rested according to season and free of hormones, antibiotics and steroids. These are happy cows. This whey is exclusive to Isagenix and is what’s within our protein products- IsaLean Shakes and IsaPro.
