Is Organic Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder Worth It?

Is Organic Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder Worth It?


Hey, what’s up guys? Sean Nalewanyj, of EliteImpactLabs.com
here, with a little bit of pre-workout coffee, just about to head to the gym. But before
I do that I just wanted to record a quick video discussing briefly the difference between
organic grass-fed whey protein, and standard regular whey protein powder. So, you know,
as you’ve probably seen the kind of all-natural organic sort of dieting approaches kind of
all the rage these days, you know. You go to the grocery store, and lying in the shelf,
you’ve got organic this, organic that, all-natural this, all-natural that. This video is not
discussing the differences between — or not discussing organic guides in general. But
what we’re specifically talking about here is grass-fed whey protein versus non-grass-feed
whey protein? And what the differences are between the two? So, with this whole kind
of organic craze that’s going on, a lot of companies are now offering grass-fed whey
protein, which is obviously from cows that haven’t been threaded with any antibiotics
or hormones, and that have been feed in a natural diet. So, most people who use these
products, obviously are using them for the purpose of avoiding ingesting, you know, the
hormones and antibiotics that are supposedly passed through to the whey protein. Now, if
you’re using grass-fed whey because it’s a lifestyle choice, you know, some sort of reason
along those lines, not specifically about your own health, and that’s totally fine.
I’m not — I’m not here to talk about that. What I’m specifically talking about in this
video are the health benefits of grass-fed whey versus standard whey. So, let’s just
go through it really briefly. First — you got three main issues basically. You have
antibiotics. You have growth hormones. And you have steroid hormones like testosterone.
So, let’s just go through each one really quickly. On the issue of growth hormone, yes,
milk does contain a small amount of growth hormone from the cow. And whey is derived
from milk obviously. So, a small amount of that is passed through to the whey. But you
have to realize that what you’re getting in the actual whey protein is the natural growth
hormone from the cow itself. It’s not a result of the exogenous hormone that is injected
into the cow basically. There’s a lot of data. I’ll link it in the description box below
actually, that shows that the growth hormone content of grass-fed whey and regular whey
does not actually differ. And not only that, but the amount that we’re dealing with here
is so absolutely minuscule that it’s really just a complete non-issue. We’re literally
talking about roughly 1microgram per liter. And a microgram is 1, 1 millionth of a gram.
So, it’s — it’s really just a total non-issue. And not only that, but growth hormones are
very delicate proteins. And when you do ingest that, you’re body is going to pretty much
destroy it during the process of digestion anyway. But again, 1microgram is virtually
nothing, not an issue. Secondly, you’ve got the issue of antibiotics. The thing to realize
is that any reputable company, selling whey protein. So, the whey protein that we sell
at Elite Impact Labs, and I’m pretty confident in saying that all of the big brands are going
to be the same are going to be using milk that is very rigorously tested for antibiotics.
And any batch of milk that contains any reasonable amount of antibiotics is going to be — is
just going to be rejected and not used. So, you really don’t have to worry about antibiotics
in that sense, because all of the milk that is used, again, this is where whey protein
is derived from is very heavily tested for antibiotics. And you’re not going to get any
significant amount in the resulting whey protein product. And finally, you have the issue of
steroid hormones like testosterone. Again, similar to growth hormone, you are going to
get a very, very small amount. But again, we’re dealing with amounts that are so small
that they are virtually undetectable. I mean, they’re literally invisible to the naked eye.
And some of them can’t even be detected. And specifically, if you’re using a pure whey
isolate, because testosterone is fat soluble. So, it’s going to — if it is going to be
passed through at, it’s going to be passed through the fat content. And if you’re using
a pure whey isolate product, you know, whey isolates are virtually fat-free. I mean, for
labeling purposes, there is 0grams of fat in a whey isolate. And more specifically,
you’re probably dealing with about a 10th or a 20th of 1gram. And then of that 10th
or 20th of that 1gram, you know, a lot of that is being derived from the soy lecithin
that’s in there, which is basically just used for flavoring purposes, and they kind of bind
the protein together. So, again, a pure whey isolate is going to be virtually fat-free,
almost none. And therefore, you know, you’re not going to get any — any testosterone that’s
going to be passed through that because there’s — there’s no fat for it to dissolve them.
And then, again, even if a very small amount did get in there, we’re dealing with an amount
so small that it would be basically undetectable. It’s not going to be a health concern. So,
it’s really not something to worry about. So, again, if you’re using a grass-fed whey
protein because of a lifestyle choice, you know, you don’t — maybe you don’t want to
purchase products that are derived from cows that are being pumped full of this stuff,
or it’s an environmental issue or whatever happens to be, that’s totally fine. I get
that. But from a human health perspective, there’s really going to be no difference between
an organic grass-fed whey protein products and a standard whey protein. And specifically,
if you — if you really want to be on the safe side, you can go with the standard whey
isolate. But I do think that even whey concentrates from this particular perspective, are going
to be fine as well. And of course, if you do want to check out a high quality whey protein
isolate product, you can check out our IsoM3 formula over on EliteImpactLabs.com. I’ll
link that in the description box below. But again, as I said, I’m not just mentioning
that because I’m trying to, you know, promote our product. Again, from this particular perspective,
a whey concentrate is also going to be fine. So, I hope you found the information in this

  1. Lets also not forget that "organic" is just a term, it's not a certificate that is only allowed by a regulating organisation. Biologic/organic/natural etc. on most American food is often just a hoax. The FDA doesn't control that at all (the FDA had it's budget cut several times the last 20 years). The only way you know something is grown without growth factors, pesticides etc. is to either grow it yourself or buy it at a local farm that allows you to check around in their facility.

  2. Are there antibiotics, growth hormone and/or steroid hormones in your whey protein?

  3. Ingesting organic grass fed beef on the other hand is actually very beneficial versus eating your off the shelf super market beef (or any meat for that matter).

  4. Are there antibiotics, growth hormone and/or steroid hormones in your whey protein?

  5. Good info, the organic difference is not really something that will make a major difference in your body, its a marketing tactic to sell to the organic dip shit crowd who likes to waist their cash shopping at wholefoods aka wholepaycheck regularly since they think they're gona live longer from that . You can still be selective in getting quality food & staying away from pesticide or hormone filled stuff but thats were being educated on what you select comes in. Investigate brands,etc.

  6. But dont pay a fortune for a couple of lbs of organic chicken breast when you can get the same quality from the regular supermarket . As long as everyone demands good food there is no reason why we cant all have everything be natural/organic and have this be the standard eventually .

  7. If you're not aware Junior ANY thing grass fed is good for you be it milk, beef, etc. The major benefit is grass fed beef and milk contain CLA which burns fat. Grain fed does not produce this huge benefit.

  8. If most reputable company's reject milk with antibiotics then why don't they disclose that ? Or have certificates of third parties lab testing done? I don't see optimum nutrition or dymatize doing that.

  9. Its not just that, the quality of inferior proteins taste like shit. The more natural, organic, grassfed, non gmo, etc… these things are the better they taste. Want to be proved wrong? Go buy a supermarket SKINLESS chicken breast then buy the organic non gmo SKINLESS one in whole foods. Tell me there is no difference in taste. Ok… well thats for me. You guys do whatever you want.

  10. Ok but in tye ingredients they add all kind of shit in almost all protien like soy gom s lecithin flavers it's not tye milk am worry about from tye cow ther is only one clean protien I found in USA is called wonder whey is clean has nothing in t pure my second best one is from muscle feast

  11. I find my life funny now cos the best whey isolate that has the best amino acid balances and priced at the cheapest is a grassfed one XD (from australia, melbourne)

  12. I disagree the regular whey protein has a lot of other ingredients he didn't say that grass fed doesn't, the matter of the fact is anything organic is always going to be a better healthy choice than anything man made chemically, so Grass fed is the way to go

  13. Total bullshit! I bet you if this was the other way around and you was selling grass fed whey instead garbage whey, you would be saying the total opposite. Are you also going to say that steak from grass fed cows is the same as steak from a factory farmed cows that are fed nothing but gmo corn and soy? Antiboitics are used because factory farmed cows are sick. You rarely have antibiotic being administered to grass fed cows because they get sunshine and eat their natural diet. How about free range chicken and eggs, are they the same also? I understand that you're trying to push a product but to say that the two whey products are basically the same is nonsense.
