FAQ

Mini Protein Smoothie Bowl
What is Mini Protein?
Mini Protein is a high protein, nutrient rich formulate that has a perfect balance of nutrients not found in other supplements on the market. Our Super Food blend contains 100% NZ grass fed whey protein isolate (WPI), amaranth, buckwheat, chia seeds, coconut, flax seeds, poppy seeds, psyllium husks, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, quinoa and is sweetened with a natural stevia.
What is Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)?
Whey protein isolate is natural byproduct from the cheese production process. It is a complete protein, which means it contains all nine of the essential amino acids that are needed in a daily diet. It also contains high levels of branched chain amino acids, allowing it to be metabolised directly into muscle tissue.
Why use Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)?
Protein helps to repair our bones, muscles, organs and virtually every body part and tissue in the human body and is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis regardless if they train at the gym or not. Our WPI is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the “building blocks” for healthy bodies. One of the common misconceptions is that protein assists with muscle bulk. Although protein does assist with muscle development, it also has the ability to curb your appetite to avoid overeating. Protein rich food will give you greater satiety yield meaning you last longer between meals. 

Protein has a number of different roles:
• Provides a source of energy
• Repairs body cells 
• Builds & repairs muscles & bones
Because of its ability to be digested very rapidly into the muscles, WPI helps to return the post-workout body back from catabolic (muscle-wasting) state to an anabolic (muscle-building) state.
