Grass-Fed Whey vs Regular Whey: Which is the Better Option for Protein Bars?

You’re probably old enough to know by now that your mom was right when she said, “You are what you eat.” With all the modern conveniences and marketing terminologies it can be difficult to make healthy choices, especially on the go. Once you’ve made the commitment to eat better, it’s time to do a little research about what’s in the foods and snacks you choose to buy and offer your family.

Protein bars can be a great option for busy adults and youngsters if they have healthy ingredients. You’d be hard pressed to find a healthier, more delicious option than Dr. Jen’s Ultimate Protein Bars made with grass-fed whey.

What’s the Big Deal About Dairy Cows and Grass-Fed Whey?

A dairy cow’s milk supply is naturally optimized for the highest quality nutrients by mother nature. A natural dairy cow can produce milk up to twice per day during the season. Her system looks forward to that break afforded during the winter months. This is the time when a dairy cow’s system recuperates and rejuvenates for optimal production in the next season.

Today there are 40% fewer dairy cows in the United States who produce 200% more milk than 80 years ago in the 1940s. This happens in part because they are milked at least four times daily and housed in temperature controlled environments to omit the winter break. Most protein today originates from Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) which are specifically designed to optimize quantity over anything else. Unfortunately, this is at the expense of the animals and ultimately the quality of the milk they supply which both suffer greatly.

Why Dr. Jen’s is the Healthier Option

Dr. Jen’s Ultimate Protein Bars are formulated specifically with whey from grass-fed dairy cows. Grass-fed whey contains an unparalleled amino acid profile with naturally occurring nutrient dense leucine and branch-chained amino acids. It also provides more conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs) which are essential fatty acids and antioxidants which may have cancer fighting properties, lower bad LDL cholesterol, and reduce body fat.

Dr. Jen’s Ultimate Protein Bars made with grass-fed whey are also devoid of a lot of the yucky stuff found in conventional whey products. For instance, conventionally raised livestock are often subjected to hormone treatments and antibiotics which are stored in the body and passed on. Whey derived from CAFO livestock is also lacking in many of the naturally occurring compounds which strengthen the immune system and feed the brain.

The Ultimate in Flavor and Nutrition There are lots of ingredients you may not even be able to pronounce on protein bar labels in the grocery store today. Dr. Jen’s Ultimate Protein Bars are made with a familiar ingredient list you can pronounce and feel good about eating. Added sweeteners and other unnecessary junk have been omitted because they simply shouldn’t be there. Dr. Jen’s Ultimate Protein Bars made with grass-fed whey are the

healthy great tasting alternative to those made with the conventional CAFO derived stuff. They taste great because they are made with real food.
