Protein from grass fed cows

As natural company, we are conscious about the environment, the climate and the consequences of it.
We pay a lot of attention to the welfare of animals.
It’s not only important what we eat. It also matters what the animals that we eat, ate.

For that reason, we choose for protein from grass fed cows for different reasons.
We work with superior protein from pasture raised Polder cows that eat what they are naturally built to digest.
Due to this, they have less health complications and produce high-quality protein in their milk.


Grass-Fed vs. Grain-Fed

To understand the importance of grass-fed over grain-fed, we must understand what whey protein is.
Whey protein is a byproduct in the production of cheese

First of all, they raise grass fed cows with respect.
The milk comes froms cows that graze on pesticide-fre grass from the Polders (in Belgium and the Netherlands).
This is obviously more expensive because the fertile land is far superior than those of a feedlot.
They transfer grain fed cows to a feedlot where they eat mostly grain.
This happens when the calves are about 12-18 months old.

Secondly, they milk the grass fed cows according to season. On the contrary, they milk grain fed cows the year round for getting large amounts of milk at the expense of their health and consequently the quality of the dairy  products. In addition, grain fed cows often get drugs and hormones to grow faster and to increase the milk production, as well as antibiotics.
Due to overcrowded feedlots, they become probably more sick. Furthermore, they are more likely to be given routine antibiotics as a preventive measure. The cows live there for a few months and are then moved into the factory for slaughtering.
