Where are these heavy metals even coming from??? 😅🤔
Trace amounts of heavy metals such as lead and arsenic are found in all protein powders because these elements are present in the soil.
Our chocolate flavored Organic Whey Protein Isolate is tested for heavy metals, (including mercury, lead, arsenic and cadmium) and test results show that for this product, the entire heavy metal content is less than 0.0522 ppm
Heavy Metal Analysis:
Mercury 0.0092 ppm
Lead 0.0136 ppm
Arsenic 0.0074 ppm
Cadmium 0.0220 ppm
What steps do you take to reduce the heavy metals in your Organic Whey Protein Isolate?
In order to reduce heavy metals to the absolute lowest levels possible, we:
- Source our Organic Whey Protein Isolate exclusively from California family farms right here in the U.S. Whey protein sourced from China, India, or other countries can have much higher levels of heavy metals due to fewer environmental regulations.
- Use ultra-filtration which passes the whey through a porous membrane to concentrate the proteins and remove impurities such as heavy metals.
- We test every batch to ensure that heavy metals are as low as possible and in a safe range.
