Q: How does whey protein compare to other types of protein?
Protein foods are not equal and can vary in a number of ways:
- Digestion and absorption rates
- Protein content
- Fat content
- Carb content
- The number and quantity of essential amino acids
Whey protein is a high quality complete protein with rich amounts of all the essential amino acids. The biological value of whey protein is one of the highest when compared to other proteins. Whey protein has a biological value of 104 compared to 100 for eggs, 83 for fish, 74 for soy protein and 54 for wheat. Biological value is the measurement of protein quality that expresses the efficiency in which the body uses protein.
Q: What is whey protein?
Whey protein is a high quality protein powder derived from cow’s milk. Whey is one of the extracted proteins from milk during the cheese-making process, the other being casein. Of the two, whey protein is more easily digested, thus, absorbed faster by the body. Whey is a complete protein containing all the essential amino acids required by the human body in amounts proportional to the body’s protein synthetic requirements.
Q: Does LeanFit® Naturals Whey contain rennet?
Whey is a by-product of the cheese-making process when rennet is added to milk. LeanFit® Naturals Whey contains traces of microbial rennet which is not an animal-based product.
Q: Is whey protein easy to digest?
Yes, whey protein is soluble and easy to digest. It is quickly absorbed by the body to provide the important essential amino acids needed to nourish the muscles and other body tissues. LeanFit® Naturals Whey contains enzymes to assist the body in breaking down the protein.
Q: What filtration process is used for LeanFit® whey protein powders?
The whey protein sources in LeanFit® Naturals Whey are produced by a unique combination of ultrafiltration and cross-flow microfiltration. Ultrafiltration is the process of using a partly permeable membrane to separate much of the lactose and soluble minerals from the whey. This is done by forcing the lactose and other undesirables through the membrane at high pressure. The proteins which are too large to be forced through remain, thus creating a whey protein concentrate with a higher percentage of protein than before. Cross-flow microfiltration is a state-of-the-art high tech manufacturing process that uses ceramic filters to remove the fat, lactose, and other unwanted materials, hence isolating the protein. The protein is not subjected to chemicals, therefore it is left unharmed and in its original state.
Q: Is LeanFit® Naturals Whey suitable for vegetarians?
Yes, LeanFit® Naturals Whey is an excellent choice for vegetarians who include dairy products in their diet. Whey is a by-product that occurs when rennet is added to milk in the cheese making process. LeanFit® Naturals Whey contains traces of microbial rennet which is not an animal by-product.
Q: Do the enzymes in LeanFit® products come from plant or animal sources?

Q: What is LeanFit® Naturals Whey sweetened with?

The herb’s whole leaf contains numerous phytonutrients and trace minerals and is 300 times sweeter than sugar without negative effects. It sweetens without calories, carbohydrates, tooth decay and is suitable for diabetics.
Q: How does LeanFit® Naturals Whey taste so great?

Q: Why do I see some clumping at the top of my LeanFit® Naturals Whey Shake?
Our LeanFit® Naturals Whey uses non-GMO sunflower lecithin as an emulsifier. This does not make the product as “instantized” as emulsifying with soy lecithin.
3) How to Use
Q: Can LeanFit® Naturals Whey help me lose weight?
The simple of act of consuming any food or supplement will not, as a direct result, lead to weight loss. However, like many nutritional strategies, when utilized correctly and paired with other healthy practices, consuming a high-quality protein powder can certainly help you reach your fat loss goals.
There are 3 reasons to include more protein in your diet to help with weight loss:
- Protein requires more energy to be broken down and absorbed by the body than carbs.
- Protein is highly satiating which leads to steady blood sugar levels and may prevent overeating.
- Protein helps build and repair muscle tissue.
Q: Can I use protein shakes in place of meals?
LeanFit® Naturals Whey does not contain sufficient fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to be considered a meal replacement. To make a convenient, nutritious meal in a glass, try adding a serving of fruit and a teaspoon of flaxseed or olive oil to your LeanFit® Naturals Whey drink to create a convenient nutritious meal in a glass.
Q: Can I cook with LeanFit® Naturals Whey?
Yes, protein powders can be added to muffins, pancakes or other baked good recipes to increase its protein content. With cooked cereals like oatmeal and with soups you may choose to mix in the protein powder after they are removed from the heat.
Q: Can protein powders be mixed ahead of time to drink later?
Yes, however freshly mixed tastes best. If you choose not to consume your LeanFit® Naturals Whey drink right after mixing, we suggest keeping it refrigerated and consuming it within 24 hours.
Q: Can LeanFit® Naturals Whey powder be mixed with fruit juice?
If your shake is too acidic, the protein will precipitate out of the solution.
Q: Do I have to refrigerate my LeanFit® Naturals Whey powder after opening?
No, you can store your LeanFit® Naturals Whey powder in a cool and dry place.
Q: My container didn’t contain a measuring scoop – what is the measure for one serving?

Q: Why should I supplement my diet with protein?
Protein is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. It is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the “building blocks” for healthy bodies. Protein has a number of different roles in the body including:
- Repairing body cells
- Building and repairing muscles and bones
- Providing a source of energy
- Controlling many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism
Q: When is protein supplementation required?
Many individuals require increased protein intake if they are:
- Engaged in regular physical exercise
- Endurance athletes
- Recovering from an illness or injury
- Restricting carbohydrate intake
- Building lean body mass and reducing body fat
- Experiencing muscle weakness
- Needing to fuel workouts by a growing teenager
- Wanting to help curb muscle loss and associated fatigue resulting from aging
Q: Can I get enough whey protein in my diet by drinking milk?
Milk is a highly nutritious beverage however, it only contains about 1% of whey protein while the rest is primarily water and lactose. In order to get all the benefits of whey protein, you need to take whey powder in a more concentrated form like in LeanFit® Naturals Whey.
Q: Can LeanFit® Naturals Whey powder help me to gain muscle mass?
Along with regular exercise, whey protein helps to build muscle mass without adding a lot of fat and carbs to your diet. Whey protein is rich in Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) – Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine which encourage muscle growth.
Q: Can LeanFit® Naturals Whey powder help me to lose fat?
Adding whey protein to your diet is a great way to jump-start your weight loss program. Studies have found that individuals who include high protein foods as part of a balanced diet and exercise have more lean muscle tissue and less body fat. By gaining lean muscle your metabolic rate may increase so you naturally burn more calories.
Another way that whey protein helps manage weight is by stabilizing your blood sugar and promoting a feeling of fullness. For these reasons, whey protein is a key ingredient in numerous weight loss and meal replacement products.
