Beef Protein Isolate
Let’s start at the very beginning. For those who eat meat, the chances are you’ve heard about how densely packed your beef is with protein. From your spag bol to your greasy burger, beef is everywhere and naturally has a place in many of our diets, but what if we could extract all that protein and make it into a convenient powder? Sounds pretty good, right?
Well, only within the past few years have we started to see the rise in beef protein powders, due to many people opting for a paleo diet.
This is a diet that requires only eating foods presumed to have been available for humans during the palaeolithic era. It’s also consumed for those who may struggle with processing dairy products too.
This doesn’t mean that Beef Protein is aimed at those who follow this diet. Its often consumed by anyone and everyone (except vegans of course). Naturally beef is very nutrient dense, so how is it actually made into a powder?
Depending on where you buy your beef protein differ in the cuts of meat, but what usually happens is beef is boiled in large vats. This creates a liquid containing protein and amino acids. This is then skimmed to remove any further carbohydrates and fats, leaving a high protein concentration. The liquid is then dried resulting in the final beef protein isolate powder.
