Note

It is important to maintain a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. May contain traces of gluten, chicken protein and soy.

Dosage & Preparation

Mix 30 g (approx. 3 tablespoons) of Whey Protein with 300 ml water or skimmed milk. Fill the shaker with liquid first, then add a serving of whey protein powder and shake well for 20–30 seconds. For best results, drink 1–3 portions a day immediately after exercising or first thing in the morning.

Our whey tip

The protein elements in whey are metabolised very quickly, which is why you should drink a shake straight after exercising. If you are interested in a complete muscle care package, you can also take 3K Protein in addition to your whey protein supplement. The advantage of this is that you can take whey protein in the morning or after exercising for a quick supply of nutrients. And you can take 3K Protein after an evening workout or before going to bed. The protein is released to your muscles more slowly, thanks to the casein content. This ensures that your muscles are supplied with nutrients and can undergo repairs throughout the night, which in turn prevents the muscles from being broken down.

Great product

Great taste, definitely recommend.

Great product

Very nice taste, happy with this product

Great flavor and great for building lean muscle

I drank the Cocos Crisp whey protein shake after every workout for one month. The flavor is great, even mixed with water. The shakes have helped me to build lean muscle quickly!

Good flavor, but it made me realise i'm lactose intolerant.

Good product, good flavor, BUT my Lactose intolerance was revealed when taking this shakes that have a huge load of lactose, I tried it about 4 or 5 times and each time I had head aches and strong stomachache within an hour, which confirmed that I may be a little intolerant. And now I cannot find where to edit my next order and erase this product from my order :/

Super taste

I love this raspberry whey protein , it tastes great and it doesn't leave any artificial after taste! I blend mine with water and I still enjoy the taste. In fact , it became my treat after my workout!

Taste Review

I would highly recommend taking these protein powders with either Organic milk or Coconut/Almond milk. From a taste perspective, this powder will be a waste when used with water.
I mixed the below with organic milk or coconut/almond milk:
Coco Crisp - Excellent taste, has coconut bits and tastes of coconut.
Raspberry - Excellent taste again, tastes of raspberry!
Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla - good taste, however, it could be better considering the price point of this.

This product would be 5 stars if the price were more competitive at £20.

Awesome

Nice product. I tried whey protein strawberry and I really like it, not to sweet.

delicious

Tastes really good in comparison with other shakes I´ve tried before. Vanilla is my personal favorite.

favourite: strawberry

strawberry tastes so good. I drink the shake with milk so it tastes like a milkshake. yummy

Wow The best....

I have tried a vast number of different protein powders and this is by far the tastiest product. My only 'Gripe' is please release an extra large (XL) size!

General information about Whey Protein

Whey protein is one of the most popular and effective protein supplements used by power athletes. It is known for its biological quality, its high content of essential amino acids, and for the speed with which the body absorbs it.

Whey protein is particularly suitable for muscle building, but can also be used for muscle definition in reduction diets. Its high biological value of 104 and the complete amino acid profile, as well as the high protein content per 100 g make Whey Protein a favourite among protein shakes.

A protein shake from the Whey Protein concentrate and isolate formula provides the body with 20-25 g high quality protein elements.

Whey Protein is extracted from milk using a filtration process. The purity and quality of a protein powder is directly related to the quality of the manufacturing process and the raw materials used. A high quality whey protein is characterised by a low carbohydrate and fat content.

Moreover, it should be easily soluble in water or in milk. A high content of essential amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine) is needed for best effects as part of a protein biosynthesis.

Many whey proteins additionally differ in terms of their raw material origins. Whey Protein by foodspring is made of the milk produced by free range cows which mostly graze. That is how we are able to offer an exceptionally untainted and premium quality product.

High-quality whey proteins don’t need any artificial sweeteners like aspartame or acesulfame-K. Steviol glycosides, purified extracts of the stevia plant, make the foodspring Whey Protein so delicately sweet.

Whey Protein for muscle building

Aside from carbohydrates and fats, proteins are the most important essential macro nutrients in our food. Proteins are responsible for muscle building and maintenance of muscle mass in the body. Protein elements are furthermore responsible for the function and maintenance of your skin, hair and nails. Proteins are made up of amino acids, some of which the body can produce autonomously (non-essential amino acids).

There are 22 amino acids in total of which 8 are so-called essential amino acids. These have to be introduced via food, as the body is unable to produce them autonomously. These include leucine, isoleucine and valine – the so-called BCAAs (branched chain amino acids).

Whey Protein contains very many of these essential amino acids. L-arginine, glutamine and other agents complement the so-called amino acid spectrum of Whey Protein. This optimised combination ensures that Whey Protein is particularly well suited to aid muscle building processes.

Why is our Whey Protein a popular shake choice right after training? The supply of nutrients is hugely important for muscle building and in particular right after training. Experts talk about a 60-90 minute anabolic (muscle building) window during which the body absorbs nutrients like a sponge and then converts them for regeneration and repair processes in the muscles.

The supply of essential amino acids during this anabolic window directly after training supports the protein synthesis and provides an important basis for muscle building. The stimulated protein synthesis controls processes in our organism. Supplying the body with Whey Protein directly after physical stress can therefore foster muscle building processes and deliver all necessary nutrients to the musculature quickly and precisely.


Whey Protein for muscle definition

Whey Protein also supports muscle definition because it contributes toward muscle maintenance and can be used as part of a high protein diet. A sufficient supply of protein is particularly important during a phase of body fat reduction.

Protein is essential for a balanced diet, and protects against loss of muscle mass (catabolism).

The elementary objective of a muscle definition phase – maximised protection against loss of muscle mass while at the same time reducing body fat – can therefore be supported. A study published by the American College of Nutrition confirms that Whey Protein in conjunction with sports activity reduces body fat and encourages anabolic processes in musculature.


The effects of Whey Protein

Building additional muscle mass is an absolute luxury for our body. The new muscle mass must be continuously supplied with nutrients to allow such luxury.

Only then can it remain efficient & powerful. Should the protein supply fail, then the body begins to gradually break down the additional muscle mass as it is not essential for the body’s survival.

Whey Protein contains essential amino acids, the so-called BCAAs, which are a basic necessity for muscle building. 

The magic formula for muscle building is a favourable nitrogen balance. As part of the nitrogen balance, the constantly running building and deconstruction processes in the body are brought together by proteins. Anyone wanting to build muscles will have to ensure a beneficial nitrogen balance.


Who should use Whey Protein?

Because of its high protein content, Whey Protein is a popular favourite among athletes, who want to build and maintain muscle mass – for example in the areas of weight lifting and fitness. It is suitable for use by amateur as well as professional athletes. Most athletes prefer Whey Protein in shake form.

Whey Protein is easy to include in your everyday routine. A protein pancake in the morning or Whey Protein mixed with some fresh berries and milk can be a wonderful breakfast shake. Best of all: The start of your day is quick and easy.


The correct dosage of Whey Protein

The German Society for Nutrition (DGE) recommends a daily intake of around 0.9 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. Regular sports activities or intensive physical training will quickly increase the body’s protein needs to at least 1.5 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight.

Whey Protein is metabolised very quickly and should therefore be taken directly after physical training. Muscles are then supplied with easily absorbed protein at the best possible time. A portion of Whey Protein can also be taken on non-training days, e.g. right after getting up in the morning. Our body is particularly susceptible to nutrients in the morning, when it can process these to optimised effect. A supply of essential amino acids early in the day means a great start for your muscles from an anabolic perspective.

It is important to provide the fundamental basics within the scope of a structured and balanced diet for optimised results in muscle building or muscle definition. Surplus calories (muscle building) or a calorie deficit (body fat reduction) are basic requirements here.

The diet should include complex carbohydrates and healthy fats, primarily high protein foods like low fat meat (beef, chicken, turkey), fish (salmon, mackerel, herring) or plant protein sources in beans, red lentils or quinoa. Only then can a comprehensive supply of all required micro nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates and fat) and micro nutrients (vitamins, minerals, trace elements) be ensured.


Possible side effects of Whey Protein

A Whey Protein shake is generally beneficial and easy to digest. Anyone suffering from a lactose intolerance should prepare the Whey Protein shake with water to reduce the lactose content.

In case of a severe lactose intolerance, we recommend switching to a plant-based protein powder (soy protein or pea protein). You should also make sure to drink plenty of water when taking Whey Protein on a regular basis in connection with a high protein diet.

As a rule of thumb: an intake of more than 1.5 g of protein per kilogram bodyweight per day will need an intake of at least 2-3 litres of water per day.

Anyone experiencing kidney problems should consult their physician before taking Whey Protein. A high intake of protein powders in conjunction with a low water intake can be very stressful for the kidneys.


Buying Whey Protein online – what you should know

The decision regarding which whey protein product to buy online is made easy when keeping some quality basics in mind. That is how we as end consumers can make more informed decisions.

The most important aspect is the use of high-quality raw materials and certified manufacturing processes. All foodspring products are developed in Germany in close collaboration with nutrition experts. Our manufacturing process is certified with the HAPPC concept and the ISO 9001:2008 quality seal, and strictly complies with the GMP guidelines.

Whey Protein is made of the milk produced by free range cows which mostly graze. We therefore use only premium quality raw materials, which we process in instant quality and with an isolate content to produce our premium quality Whey Protein – Made in Germany.

Low quality whey protein products are easily recognised by their poor solubility and clumping. These products leave customers unsatisfied – which is why we have consciously chosen a different path.

But at the end of the day, everyone makes their own decisions. You should, however, always think about how much your health is worth to you. That should also apply to questioning dumping prices for whey protein products of other manufacturers. Just like everything else in life: premium quality protein powder has its price.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is whey protein?

Whey protein is known for being readily available to the body and for its high essential amino acid content. These advantages make it the ideal protein after the physical strain of strength or endurance training. A supply of protein building blocks is important to accelerate protein synthesis, thus stimulating anabolic (muscle building) processes in the body.
Whey protein is naturally gluten-free. May contain traces of gluten due to being produced in an environment with other gluten-containing products.

What are the advantages of protein from pasture milk?

Protein is the main ingredient in your shake. That's why we take care to use exceptionally high-quality ingredients. Milk from pasture-raised cows is our standard. That way, we ensure that only the best quality milk gets into your shaker. Milk from grass-fed cows contains more linoleic acid and also has a higher omega-3 fatty acid content than milk from indoor cows.

Why should I not buy cheap whey?

Cheap whey proteins tend to come from milk produced by factory farming. Despite strict food regulations, questionable residues can sometimes be detected in the milk as a result of contaminated animal feed. These can be transmitted to humans through food and can harm the body. Any unnecessary strain on the body has a negative impact on efficiency and muscle building in the long term.

What can I achieve by using whey protein?

Whey protein is especially suited to muscle building and muscle maintenance for strength and endurance training. Whey protein is best used directly after physical exertion. Moreover, whey protein can be used to offset nutrient deficiencies caused by insufficient protein intake.

What are the advantages of steviol glycoside?

The stevia plant is nature’s own high-quality sweetener that offers more than just a sweet taste. From the leaves of this plant, we extract the purified steviol glycosides that provide the sweetness for our whey protein. We avoid superfluous carbohydrates and calories by using steviol glycosides. This makes it far superior to traditional industrially produced sugar.

Does whey protein contain aspartame?

We are strongly opposed to the use of aspartame as a sweetener in all of our proteins. There have been numerous studies about the potential negative health effects of aspartame. Although current studies indicate that aspartame consumed in small quantities is not dangerous, we prefer to use other sweeteners in our products.
