THE HISTORY AND RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PEOPlE AND WHEY
First,we’ll mainly focus on the topic about whey protein.Things have really changed between the evolutionary periods of humanity. Amazingly there was evidence that discovered that people in the High Sinai Peninsula at the northern end of the Red Sea utilized fences to help breed antelope. They’ve breaded antelope for their milk for about as long as 30,000 years ago. The region, the Near East and Balkan Peninsula was thought to be the genesis of agricultural revolution. It was believed that this revolution occurred 6000 BC. And the earliest consumers of milk were the Indo-Europeans of Central Asia.
All animals including humans, consumed whole milk. Whole milk was consumed as a whole food. In the last 10,000 years milk wasn’t processed or tainted in any shape or form. Mother Nature is the source of all living things. Each species are provided with the fruits of whole milk containing a high fat, protein rich food.
Untainted milk has been provided to us naturally which provides all the essential nutrients already. People have turned to alternative uses for it. Milk derivatives like butter, ice cream, cream, yogurt, kefir, buttermilk, and cheese have been made mainly from sheep, cows, and goats. This was meant to supplement the human diet. As we all know whey protein, whey is actually a secondary product of cheese making.
There are many tribes throughout the world that uses raw-milk as there source of nutrition. These people have maintained a high level of health and development. Most folks are unaware of this. Whey at one point in time was considered a waste product by the dairy industry. Farmers usually fed whey to their pigs.
Unknowingly, there was about millions of gallons of whey thrown on the roads and they even dumped it in the rivers. The cheese industry did an investigation and made the whey protein from the waste product. There is a lot of research BS touting the benefits of whey protein today. I must worn you my friend, be very prudent when reading these so called studies and claims. The majority of the time, the whey used in the studies is great quality and far more better than the manufacturer.
The manufacturer actually sells under the semblance of the study. If you really want to know how good your whey protein is, please take note, and realize that high quality whey products don’t come from sick cows!
Cows usually produce milk for about 12 weeks. Female animals and humans are more vulnerable to infections, while going through the process of milk production. This organic cycle is a natural occurrence. There is already sufficient nutrition aiding the process of healthy birthing.
The thing that sucks is that these farmers extend the milking cycle. They do this by giving the cows (rBGH). The use of recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) delays the conclusion of the miking cycle for another 8-12 weeks. This increases the risk of infection by almost 80%, according to the book “Milk:The Deadly Poison.”
Cows are getting inflammation of the mammary gland in the breast and udder. There was an ecologist report on hygiene stating that “some producers have begun research trials adding cardboard, newspaper and sawdust to cattle feed programs to reduce costs.” The US Department of Agriculture says that cement dust may become feeding ground. Supposedly, this helps fatten up the cows.
Regular feed is too “slow” for milk production. Moreover, “Food and Drug Administration (FDA) say that it is common for some feedlot operators to blend sewage and oils into feed. This reduces the cost and fattens the animals more quickly. Thirty antibiotics are approved by the FDA and another 50 are suspected to be in use illegally.
A Short Story of Friend Skyes and His Method
There has been a direct correlation between animal agriculture and milk quality, and it has been well known for some time. In 1950, the British Council singled out a great famous organic farmer. He went by the name Friend Sykes, and the Milk Marketing Board was concerned about his production of nutritious milk. They were also concerned about nutrition decreasing in British milk as a whole.
The Milk Marketing Board was aware of the low quality of nutrition! This 50 year trend of decreasing nutrition was the decline in milk solids relative to milk fats (milk solids are proteins, minerals and trace minerals). Friend Skyes milk was 20% higher in protein than the average farms in Europe. The statistics and numbers was so astounding that the Milk Marketing Board sent an investigator to find out how he could produce high quality milk.
Skyes showed the investigator how he properly cared for his farm animals. The quantity of food was lower than traditional methods. The investigator was so shocked by the low quantity of food that he noted “they were in fact in better condition than any Guernsey herd he had seen that spring.” It has been shown that farm animals, consume 30% less food by volume when fed organic due to the high concentration of nutrition!
Moreover, research shows a connection between food quality and animal health. How are people any different? Ponder that for a second. The interesting thing is that they weren’t just looking at whey, they were looking at the milk. Milk is the source of the whey. The basic conclusion is that the whey product is just as good as the source it came from!
Are You Searching For A Trusted Brand?
Like I’ve been talking about throughout the entire page, stay away from processed whey as much as you can, if you can help yourself. I know that sometimes it is hard to find healthy ingredients. Sometimes you may walk into a store and the label might say, “100% All Natural, Good Source Of Vitamin D, 100% Certified Organic, Good Source Of Vitamin D, etc. Remember, that’s just a bunch of malarkey. Now, you might try and argue, but before you argue, make sure you do extensive research on the product labels, if you can, take a picture of the product ingredients, and look it up on Google. You can google just about anything now a days. Check out this article for more information on food labeling, “Eye Catching Labeling.”
Don’t Panic there is nothing to worry about. We as a species still have hope. There are many ways to find products that are legit, and they are verified by one of the most trusted brands.
There are trusted brands like, Non-GMO Project, USDA Organic, Kosher Certified, those are some of your credible sources. And one of are trusted brands is Organic Valley.
The protein in Organic Valley Fuel is a combination of whey and casein. This occurs naturally in milk. As I stressed in my other articles, protein is necessary. Protein is a building block in muscle, bones, skin and blood. It supports muscle and tissue repair overall. But, I’m sure some of you are aware of that.
Organic Valley also has less ingredients in it. That’s what I love about Organic Valley’s Organic Fuel. Most of the other competitors have ridiculous amounts of ingredients in them, and what is the point in that? Think about it for a second, do you want horrible ingredients in your whey protein. Are you ok with putting crystalline fructose, maltodextrin, medium chain triglycerides, into your stomach? Do you want to eat cholecalciferol and cyanocobbalamin? I don’t even know how to pronounce these killer drugs!
All in All, I highly recommend this product. The awesome thing is that you can find some awesome deals on it , and I highly recommend you buy it from Amazon, I personally love shopping on Amazon. I get the majority of my products from Amazon. But, your an adult or young adult, or teenager whatever, the decision is yours. Would you rather pay $37.99 for some poor quality whey, or would you rather pay $27.00 for beneficial nutrients from mother nature herself?
