Açaí Whey

Overview

Açaí Whey is a hydrolysed protein isolate (from whey, filtered with Cross-Flow-Microfiltration (CFM)), bioactive collagen peptides, pure açaí, and sweeteners from plant-based sources. Açaí Whey has an excellent acai taste and is free from artificial sweeteners, gluten, trans fats, preservatives, and artificial colourants. The hydrolysed protein isolate is absorbed more easily by the body than traditional protein concentrates and isolates, and the collagen peptides support the joints.

HOW IT WORKS

HYDROLYSED WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE

Provides excellent absorption and digestibility provided by the hydrolysis process. Each serving contains 4.3g of BCAA (branched chain amino acids) and 3.4g of glutamine, which optimize muscle growth, anabolic action and the restoration of the muscle tissue. In some studies whey protein was also associated with stimulating endogenous synthesis of antioxidants such as glutathione, strengthening the immune system and reducing inflammation in the body. Each serving of 35g of Açaí Whey offers 44% of the daily amount of protein that an adult needs.

 

CROSS-FLOW MICROFILTRATION (CFM)

The purification technique is fundamental to the quality of whey protein. CFM operates at low temperatures and without the use of chemicals. The process preserves protein subfractions with high biological value such as lactoferrin, glycomacropeptides and immunoglobulins with important functions in the body (antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antioxidative). CFM also separates the protein from undesirable substances such as fats and carbohydrates (lactose) and produces a very highly concentrated protein (c. 95%). Other techniques, such as ion-exchange, are not capable of maintaining these important protein subfractions and they use chemical reagents, such as hydrochloric acid, that degrade the product.

 

COLLAGEN PEPTIDES

Collagen peptides are the essential parts of low molecular weight proteins obtained from enzymatic transformation of Hydrolysed Collagen, which provide better absorption and action in the body. The amino acids in collagen peptides are the major constituents of connective tissue, such as cartilage, tendons, bones and skin, aiding in preventing wrinkles and skin elasticity. It is an excellent nutritional support for athletes, general public, and elderly people.

 

PURE ORGANIC AÇAÍ FROM PARÁ

Açaí (Euterpe oleracea Martius) is a typical Brazilian fruit rich in a substance called anthocyanins, with antioxidant properties. In addition, its composition has a high content of unsaturated fatty acids, highlighting the oleic and linoleic acids, phytosterols (B-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol), and dietary fibers.

 

NATURAL SWEETENERS

This product uses sweeteners obtained from natural sources, with very low Glycaemic Index. It is safe to be used by pregnant women, children, and people with diabetes or who are simply concerned about maintaining their health.

HOW TO USE

Mix two 2 scoops of Açaí Whey, 35g, in approximately 200 ml of water.

Mix in a shaker cup or blender until completely homogeneous.
