Whey can be a powerful and beneficial addition to one’s diet, but it’s important to know that not all whey is the same. If you want top-of-the-line whey: unrivaled in quality, ethically sourced, and produced in imaginative, exciting flavor combinations —you should try Tera’s Whey.
Whey protein is produced during the process of making cheese, which starts when certain enzymes are added to milk, causing it to separate out into constituent parts. One of the parts is called curds—which are used to make cheese—leaving behind whey protein in the liquid portion. Tera’s Whey products are made just that way, although with very high standards. All diary derives from small Wisconsin farms where livestock are free of artificial growth hormones, are pasture raised, and are grass-fed.
Tera’s takes this complete whey protein and carefully blends it with organic ingredients like bourbon vanilla and Fair Trade Certified dark chocolate cocoa. Each batch is minimally processed, and the products are therefore highly nutritious and very simple.These whey powders are a known hit in smoothies, as well as in other, less obvious cooking applications. Many people get their protein fixes by serving up the whey in snacks, cookies, breads, and more.
Because of the subtle and delicious flavor of Tera’s Whey products, these powders go exceptionally well in simple pairings such as in yogurt with fruit, in a latte, or even in your oatmeal. Since it’s packed with 21 grams of pure whey protein per serving and is naturally low in carbohydrates, this whey provides an energy-boosting treat that can be enjoyed as a morning wake-up, afternoon pick-me-up, or a post-workout recharger.
Here are some of the characteristics of Tera’s Whey products that define its high level of quality:
