Nectar® Medical is an unflavored protein powder that contains the highest-quality whey protein isolate (WPI) called Promina.
Whey protein is the soluble fraction of milk protein that accounts for approximately 20% of the total protein content in bovine milk. On the other hand, casein makes up the other 80% and is the insoluble portion that is used to produce cheese. During cheese-making, the casein fraction is coagulated and precipitated to form cheese, while the whey protein is filtered off to create other products. Those products that contain 90% or more protein are called whey protein isolates. WPIs contain nearly ZERO fat and ZERO carbohydrates and are the highest-quality whey protein products in the industry.
Promina™ is an undenatured (unaltered from its natural state) and highly soluble WPI that is extremely gentle to the gastrointestinal tract. Promina is also unmatched in its ability to be mixed in nearly any soft food or beverage without a noticeable change in taste or mouthfeel.
Absolutely! Whey protein is considered by many experts to be the best protein source available for those with medical conditions. With the highest level of digestion and the best amino acid profile, whey protein is substantially non-allergenic and provides high levels of growth factors and small-peptide fractions. Whey protein also boosts the immune system and has the highest level of usage and incorporation into lean body mass.
While Nectar® Medical is made only with Promina, some manufacturers use gelatin or collagen protein in their protein products. Produced from the joints and skin of cows and pigs, gelatin is considered by many experts to be one of the worst quality protein sources approved for human nutrition. A protein product that lists gelatin or collagen as an ingredient should be considered inferior and should not be consumed by those who require a source of high-quality protein.
Absolutely not! Some manufacturers infuse their protein products with amino acids, such as taurine, glutamine or glycine. These inexpensive fillers test as 100% protein but do not enhance the product’s overall quality. In fact, these inferior ingredients tend to disrupt the amino acid profile of whey protein and actually lower its nutritional status. Nectar® Medical is made from pure whey protein isolate and contains no fillers of any kind.
