About Our Products
Animal-free whey protein is dairy-identical whey protein that’s made without any animal inputs whatsoever. Our animal-free whey protein ingredient is made by our partners Perfect Day. Learn more about their process here.
We are massive fans of animal-free whey protein as you still get all the amazing taste, creaminess & the fantastic smooth texture of normal whey, without the animals, and with much less impact than anything else in the sports nutrition industry.
V-Whey’s animal-free whey protein ingredient is bioidentical to whey protein from cows. In addition to having up to 23g of complete protein per serving, V-Whey has up to 5g of naturally-occurring BCAAs (3 essential amino acids that help support protein synthesis) per serving.
Our V-Whey uses flora-made whey protein, manufacturing of which creates 97% less greenhouse gas emissions, requires 99% less water and 60% less energy compared to conventional dairy.
V-Whey is made by microflora, with zero animals used anywhere in the process. Because the animal-free whey protein ingredient is bioidentical to whey protein from cows, we add a “contains milk allergen” declaration to the front and back of our packaging as part of our commitment to consumer safety.
V-Whey contains animal-free whey protein, we label our V-Whey with “contains milk protein” because the non-animal whey protein has the same molecular structure as whey that comes from cow’s milk.
Yes, but no animals are involved in the process. The flora-made whey is structurally identical to the whey from cows thanks to our innovative fermentation techniques.
Yes, California Performance Co.’s V-Whey is NSF Certified. It has been tested by a trusted independent certification organization valued by consumers, manufacturers, retailers and regulatory agencies worldwide.
Microflora, or flora for short, are central to our process for making animal-free dairy protein. The exact definition of microflora is microscopic flora or a small or strictly localized flora. Perfect Day’s flora are the microscopic organisms at the heart of our fermentation process that makes animal-free dairy protein.
When we refer to microflora, we are intentionally being a bit general. Microflora is an umbrella term that covers all of the microorganisms we can use to make the molecules we need. In our case it is a fungus. The fungus we use today to make milk protein has long been known to live in soils, and was discovered as a top contender for making bioproducts during World War II in the islands of the South Pacific.
Yes, V-Whey is 100% lactose free.
Yes, V-Whey is 100% gluten free.
Our protein powder has all of the benefits from your favorite protein with far less environmental impact. Compared to whey protein from cows, V-Whey’s animal-free whey protein creates up to 97% less greenhouse gas emissions and uses up to 99% less water and up to 60% less non-renewable energy. You can find out more about our environmental impact here.
Compared with plant-based protein, V-Whey is actually whey protein (just made through fermentation, not animals). Because our non-animal whey protein is bioidentical to whey protein from cows, we have a better amino acid profile and a higher protein content than plant-based protein powder. And because there are no animal products used, V-Whey is 100% hormone-free.
No, V-Whey does not contain GMOs. While bioengineering is part of the process used by our partners at Perfect Day in producing the animal-free whey protein, our protein powder does not contain GMOs. Learn more here.
