Frequently Asked Questions:
What exactly is whey protein?
Whey protein is widely considered to be the highest quality natural protein. It is found in cow's milk
and was prescribed by doctors (including Hippocrates - the father of medicine) years ago to treat a
myriad of ailments. If you have ever had fresh farm milk and seen the clear liquid that separates
and floats to the top then you have seen whey in its freshest form. Whey protein is considered a
"complete" protein because it contains all 9 of the essential amino acids. It is also considered to
have the highest biological value of any protein on earth meaning that it is the most easily
absorbed and utilized by your body.
Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey is produced using a unique low-temperature method of drying and
filtration that allows all of the whey's natural benefits to remain perfectly intact and undamaged.
Standard whey protein products often get their whey protein from the bi-product of cheese
production and from cows that are fed GMO grains, corn, and soy. They must then use high-heat
processing to kill all of the potentially harmful bacteria and, as a result, any of the positive benefits.
We get our whey from the best source - fresh grass-fed milk harvested from cows that are healthy,
pasture raised, rBGH free, antibiotic free, and never fed grain. It is then gently processed at low
temperatures so as to keep all of the nutrients, enzymes, amino acids, and overall health benefits
intact so that you get the most nutritional benefits. The result is a superior whey protein that is
exponentially better, healthier, and more effective than any other whey protein.
What is the difference between whey concentrates and whey isolates?
Many people wrongly believe that whey isolates are healthier for you because they have a slightly
higher percentage of protein per serving. However, in order to process whey into isolate form it
goes through a more extensive manufacturing process that strips many of the beneficial properties
Whey concentrates, however, are proteins that are closer to their natural form, which means that
more of the nutrients, enzymes, and vitamins are still intact. In whey isolates most of the benefits
are stripped out or processed to death. Most isolates are also subjected to acid processing. We
never use whey isolates and prefer to use the least amount of processing possible in order to leave
all of Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey’s amazing health benefits undamaged and intact.
What is the lactose content in the whey? What is the casein content?
Lactose content for Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey is 1g per 10g serving, which is considered below
the level for people who are lactose intolerant. Lab analysis of our native whey protein verifies that
our whey contains less than 1% non-denatured casein.
What is the difference between Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey and the whey products at my supermarket?
There is really no comparison. In every aspect Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey is a superior protein
source. Our whey is from healthy 100% grass-fed, rBGH free, and chemical free cows. These cows
get open pastures to graze year round, exercise, and plenty of sunlight to boost their natural
vitamin D levels. Other whey proteins produce their whey from the milk of cows who are raised on
feedlots, fed an unhealthy diet of GMO grains, corn, and soy which their body's cannot process,
and they pump them full of growth hormones so that they produce more milk. For this reason we
do not need to over-process our whey, but rather we use a proprietary low-temperature method
that keeps all of Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey's nutrients and benefits undamaged.
Does Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey contain all of the essential amino acids?
Yes, Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey is a "complete" or "perfect" protein in that it contains all 9 of the
essential amino acids. And due to our unique low-temperature drying method these amino acids
are undamaged and biologically available in every serving of Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey.

Is Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey gluten free?
Yes. Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey is 100% gluten free.
Is Paleovalley Grass Fed Whey high-heat processed?
Absolutely not! The reason that most whey proteins use ultra-pasteurization (high-heat
processing) is that the milk or cheese where they source the whey from is poor quality and can
contain harmful bacteria. It does not come from healthy cows but rather from feedlot cows who are
fed an unnatural diet and are pumped full of antibiotics. This causes their milk to be equally as
unhealthy and can be dangerous to eat if it has not been pasteurized at very high temperatures.
Pasteurization kills all of the bad bacteria found in lower quality milks and is essential if you are
getting your milk from these types of unhealthy cows. However, pasteurization kills more than just
the bad bacteria, it kills all of the good bacteria, nutrients, and enzymes. Paleovalley Grass Fed
