Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I choose BRIOWELL?
In addition to our unique and delicious flavors, BRIOWELL is Non-GMO and Gluten-Free.
BRIOWELL does not contain artificial preservatives, sweeteners, colors, flavors or ingredients.
Does BRIOWELL contain lactose?
Yes. Any kind of whey protein will contain trace amounts of lactose. In our experience, some people having minor lactose sensitivities do not have the same sensitivities to our products.
Is BRIOWELL rBGH / rBST free?
Yes. Our whey protein is free of recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) / recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST).
Why is whey from grass-fed pasture raised cows better than the conventional grain-fed cows?
Happy cows that are pasture raised and naturally feed on grass are healthier and produce premium quality milk. Studies have shown that grass-fed milk yields more nutrition such as higher levels of immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, vitamins and other bioactive compounds found in the fat. It’s also better for the environment, for the cows, and most importantly for you.
What concentration level of whey does your protein contain?
Our protein contains 80% protein by weight referred to as WPC80 (Whey Protein Concentrate 80). This means that if you were to scoop 100 grams of pure WPC80, you would get 80 grams of protein.
Why consider a whey concentrate over whey isolate?
Most isolates on the market contain 90% protein by weight referred to as WPI90 (Whey Protein Isolate 90), this is due to increased processing which leaves you with an almost pure protein product with virtually no fat, carbs, and lactose. Isolates are most beneficial for those who are severely lactose intolerant. However, due to the removal of fat and carbs from the isolate process, you also end up removing quality nutrients. We carefully chose to use whey concentrate over isolate because we believe the higher levels of beneficial nutrients found in grass fed milk should be retained in your whey. Think of it like this... why would we pay more for high quality eggs for it’s extra nutritional value only to remove the egg yolk and keep the egg whites? The nutrition is in the egg yolk!
