WHEY PROTEIN

SUPPORTING TEEN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT


Why Bioteen Created This Supplement (Understanding the Problem)

Protein is a hard- working nutrient.   It’s needed for the growth and repair of muscles and tissues, and the production of enzymes and hormones.  Proteins provide the building blocks, called amino acids and polypeptides, of all muscle tissue.  Protein is also your “brain food.” Because your brain is one big muscle, not getting enough protein can hurt brain function.

Protein needs are based on age, sex, body weight and stage of development, with teens needing between 10 to 30% of their daily calories from protein. Although an individual’s exact needs will vary, the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) provides a good reference for how much of a certain nutrient a healthy individual needs in a day. The RDA for protein is 46 grams for teenage girls and 52 grams for teenage boys per day.

The amount of protein Teens need depends on their height, weight, gender and level of activity. In general, teenage boys need about 52 grams of protein per day, while teenage girls need about 46 grams per day. More active teen athletes require more protein.   

In order for protein to do its job, teens have to eat enough food to meet their daily energy needs. When calories are too low, the body uses protein for energy, leaving less for its other roles. 

The rationale for creating Bioteen’s Whey Protein was to provide a healthy complete source of protein in an easy to use ready to mix formulation which contains no sugar, no preservatives and includes vitamins and minerals to provide a safe and effective protein supplement for those teens not consuming enough protein in their daily diet.

What Is Whey Protein & Who Should Be Taking It

Native whey protein is produced by the filtration of unprocessed raw milk from grass-fed cows. This production method leaves proteins intact and gives native whey higher leucine content than the more common whey protein concentrate.  It is often referred to as the cleanest, least processed whey protein available.  

Bioteen’s Whey Protein is ideal for Teenagers who are not getting enough protein from their daily diet or for Teens looking for an easy to use protein source to combine with fruits and or vegetables to create healthy smoothies or smoothy bowls.

The Science (How Whey Protein Works)

Proteins are made up of many building blocks, known as amino acids. Our body needs dietary protein to supply amino acids for the growth and maintenance of our cells and tissues. 

Our bodies are made up of thousands of different proteins, each with a specific function. They make up the structural components of our cells and tissues as well as many enzymes, hormones and the active proteins secreted from immune cells.

These body proteins are continually being repaired and replaced throughout our lives. This process (known as ‘protein synthesis’) requires a continuous supply of amino acids. Although some amino acids can be recycled from the breakdown of old body proteins, this process is imperfect. This means we must eat dietary protein to keep up with our body’s amino acid demand.

Ingredient Transparency & Quality (Not All Ingredients Are Created Equally)

Bioteen showcases a relentless commitment to a superior quality product that is both ethical and safe for consumption in the extremely important phase of the lives of teens.

Ingredient quality is a core focus for us at Bioteen because better ingredients yield products that are highly effective and safe. That’s why Bioteen has set the bar high when it comes to the evaluation of our ingredients, from how different forms of ingredients work in the body to where they are sourced and how they have been manufactured. Bioteen has partnered with international suppliers who share our beliefs for quality, purity and scientific research.

  • Ingredient safety: All ingredients used in Bioteen are GRAS certified (Generally Recognised as Safe) as published by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • Scientifically Researched: we only use ingredients that have been tested in scientific studies to be safe and effective for their intended purpose. 
  • Allergen control: Bioteen products have been formulated with a careful consideration for consumers with specific allergies and sensitivities.
  • Branded ingredients: our key active ingredients are all branded, i.e. trademarked-protected, ingredients. Branded ingredients are manufactured to higher quality standards than generic products and offer higher levels of purity, transparency in their manufacturing as well as clinical research supporting their efficacy. Branded ingredients often provide scientific and educational support that makes it easy for a consumer to learn more about the science behind the specific ingredient used in the making of Bioteen products.

At Bioteen, we have a commitment to quality throughout our entire manufacturing process. Because we source all our raw materials ourselves, we have total control over what goes into Bioteen products. Our manufacturing is then undertaken by carefully selected contract manufacturers who are third-party certified.

Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) certification: CGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the Food and Drug Administration “FDA”. is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. The cGMP acronym originated in the USA, where the US food and Drug Administration wanted to impress upon manufacturers the importance and need for “continuous” improvement to their approach to product quality.

Quality Manufacturing Stamp

Everything that goes into our product is thoroughly tested and sampled by our food scientist and owner. We know and understand the importance of everything that goes into our products and what functionality it serves to the teenage body, scientifically testing every ingredient to ensure a safe and ethical product.

This testing and lab sampling has led us to where we are today (and trust us, there have been some interesting and awful concoctions that we have come up with), a superior quality and excellent tasting product that allows teenagers, with Bioteen, to own the whole day to support their diet. From breakfast to dinner, Bioteen’s product range is a vehicle for delivery for vitamins, minerals, stress minerals, prebiotics and whole food nutrition and other things that teens need.

Yes, absolutely. Bioteen Whey Protein mixes very easily and tastes amazing in various recipes as well as your favorite smoothie. Please see our recipe page for ideas.

The whey protein used in Bioteen Whey Protein is extracted from milk as a raw material. This results in a protein product with higher purity and nutritional properties. Regular whey proteins, on the other hands, are extracted from liquid whey which is a colorized by-product of cheese manufacture. Prior to the protein extraction process this liquid raw material is typically bleached using chemicals to decolourize it. The problem with bleaching is that it damages the proteins which results in the loss of biological activity of important whey components (called microfractions). Bleaching also gives rise to residual chemicals like benzoates and lipid oxidation compounds which are potentially harmful.

 Bioteen Whey Protein can be used throughout the day to help meet your daily protein needs.

You can, provided you consume it along with sufficient carbohydrates (e.g. in the form of fruits) to help address your energy replacement needs. However, the best option for recovery is Bioteen Recovery which has been optimized for recovery and formulated to kick start muscle repair, glycogen replenishment and rehydration.

Key Product Differentiators – Comparing Us To The Rest

 CriteriaTypical Whey Protein ProductBioteen Whey Protein
Protein sourceWhey protein (grade not always specified), protein blends and sometime soy protein.Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC80 grade).
Native Whey ProteinNo. Contains whey protein derived from cheese by-products. This by product needs to be chemically bleached to remove cheese colourants. This produces potentially harmful lipid oxidation products and residual by products like benzoates (ref)Yes. Bioteen uses Native Whey Protein which is Isolated directly from milk. Milk is first coagulated, the insoluble casein is then filtered, leaving pure whey which is then ultra-filtered to produce native whey protein without any chemical bleaching step.
Protein adulterantsIncreasingly common. Some manufacturers add amino acids to their protein powders to artificially inflate the protein quantity (amino spiking) and use less of the more expensive whole proteins.No spiking agents. All proteins are from whey protein concentrate.
Added multivitaminsRarely added.Contains a high-quality multivitamin (Fortitech®) that supplies 33% of the daily requirements of 11 vitamins.
Added mineralsRarely added.Contains an Albion® mineral blend which has been chelated to ensure maximum absorption. The blend also includes including trace minerals like Boron, Copper and Molybdenum.
Prebiotic fibreRarely added.Contains 500mg per serving of the prebiotic dietary fibre, Orafti® P95 (Fructo-oligosaccharides) to feed beneficial gut bacteria.
