The choice is up to you, but NorCal Organic Whey is the only organic whey protein that:
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.
NorCal Organic Whey begins as fresh raw milk from grass-fed cows and is then low-temperature pasteurized in accordance with FDA regulations. In fact, there are no whey proteins that are legally sold that are unpasteurized or raw.
NorCal Organic Whey is soy-free. NorCal Organic Whey uses less than 1% organic sunflower lecithin, and NorCal Organic Classic Whey contains no lecithin and is 100% organic whey protein.
NorCal Organic Whey contain a very small amount of organic sunflower lecithin while NorCal Organic Classic Whey does not. Lecithin aids mixing with a spoon or mixer bottle, but when using a blender, there isn't a noticeable difference.

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.
