- Product Q&A
proteins+ includes 18 amino acids, including all of the essential amino acids which must be consumed in your diet and cannot be synthesized by your own body.
proteins+ is manufactured in Canada. However, the whey protein isolate comes from cows in the US that are grass – and grain- fed and hormone free. Our Prohydroxy blend consists of: Protease I (Aspergillus Oryzae), Protease II (Carica Papaya), Peptizyme SP (Serratia), Lactase (Aspergillus Oryzae) and Amylase (Aspergillus Oryzae). The enzymes are microbial.

In addition, this product is not recommended as a meal replacement as it does not contain adequate carbs, fats, or fiber when used on its own (with water).

That being said, intact casein is very low. The levels are not tested nor standardized, but it is estimated that intact casein would represent less than 1% of the total protein (or <25mg/serving).
