Caprotein is the highest quality and easiest to digest goat milk protein powder available. It is made from grass-fed goat milk that contains no antibiotics or growth hormones. We take some of our whole goat milk protein (naturally 80% casein and 20% whey) and ferment it with probiotic cultures. Then we mix it together with more whole protein, and vanilla flavor and gently dry it on our Refractance Window Dryer at low temps, preserving the nutrition. The fermented process of part of the protein helps to pre-digest the protein, making it easier to digest and absorb.
Caprotein is great for after workouts and before going to bed, since the casein in it is a slower digesting protein. It can be mixed into pancakes or oatmeal for a delicious vanilla protein boost!
WHY DO WE NEED PROTEIN?
Proteins are the building blocks of human life, essential for normal growth. Proteins have many important bio-actives including immunoglobulins and enzymes. Proteins form the foundation of muscles, bones, skin, hair, blood and heart. Lack of dietary protein can hinder these foundational areas. Protein generally contains approximately 22 amino acids. Eight of those amino acids are essential because the body cannot produce them and so they must be obtained from our diet. Caprotein contains all of the essential amino acids for optimal health.
WHY NOT A VEGETABLE OR SOY PROTEIN?
Vegetable proteins lack the complete spectrum of essential amino acids which, as the name implies, are essential for muscle building. Supplementing with a protein that lacks essential amino acids is like taking a daily multivitamin that is missing key vitamins. It is also best to avoid soy protein supplements as they contain phytates which block key enzymes, and phytoestrogens which is a form of hormone. Phytoestrogens can disrupt normal hormonal function. Also, “natural soy” is toxic unless enzymatically treated with chemicals to neutralize a dangerous enzyme.
CAPROTEIN® IS MINIMALLY PROCESSED
Most other milk protein powders are made from cow milk and though they claim to be minimally processed they use several invasive processing steps including heating at high temperatures. At Mt. Capra one of the most important production methods we use is the Refractance Window Drying machine, a drying method that uses conduction, convection and infrared which applies minimal and variable heat sources to gently dry Caprotein and preserve the original integrity that keeps it as close to nature as possible. This unique drying process allows the powerful probiotics and digestive enzymes to thrive from the lacto-fermentation or “pre-digestion” process. The naturally occurring probiotics and enzymes make Caprotein the perfect choice for both young and old alike.
SUCCESS WITH CAPROTEIN®
“Switch to Caprotein! It’s so much more efficient than cow protein. You can feel it revitalize your body and build muscle faster. You get more out of a pound of goats milk protein than you would out of two pounds of cow milk protein.”
