Why should I choose NorCal Organic Whey over other organic whey protein brands?

January 01 2014

The choice is up to you, but NorCal Organic Whey is the only organic whey protein that:

  • is Non-GMO Project Verified (our cows do not ever receive any GMO feed, we support testing and awareness for GMO ingredients);
  • is American Humane Association certified (our farmers take care of their cows);
  • tells you where our whey comes from (we are proud to work with a handful of family farms in Northern California);
  • third-party tests all our ingredient and nutrition claims, and microbial safety analysis before and after packaging;
  • is soy-free; and
  • we were founded by a registered dietitian and passionate supporter of local and organic agriculture.

What is the difference between whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate?

January 01 2014

NorCal Organic Whey is a whey protein concentrate because the extra heat and processing required to create an isolate would denature the protein and cause the loss of valuable co-factors and omega-3 fatty acids naturally present in NorCal Organic Whey. There is no organic whey protein isolate available on the market.

Dear NorCal Organic Customer,

We have always been a company focused on providing the highest quality products to our customers. This includes our packaging. Recently we started using a new type of bag with the goal of reducing the amount of plastic we use. This was based on our company's environmental goals as well as many customer requests.

The new bags have an inner bag that protects the ingredients inside from air and moisture. The second layer of the bag, instead of using a plastic, we chose to use a paper based layer made from wood pulp. This reduced the plastic in our bags by 60%. Unfortunately, we have heard from a number of customers that this new bag is not durable enough and they have received bags that were damaged in shipping.

First, we apologize if you have been one of the customers that has received a damaged bag. Second, we are working as quickly as we can to bring back our previous bag packaging that provided the durability needed for our product to survive what can be a rough shipping experience.

Please reach out to us if you have received a damaged bag so we can take care of this.
Thank you for your understanding and patience, we will work as quickly as we can to correct this.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

NorCal Organic
