What is Whey Protein?
You may have heard the term ‘whey protein’ pop up from time to time in chats about exercise or gym supplements. However, whey protein is super important for your little one’s development too.
The early stages of childhood are a time of rapid growth and development. In fact, in the first two years of life, your little one is not only developing strong bones and muscles but their fine motor skills too – all of which need nutrients that the body can’t build up and store. This means, your bub needs to consume an abundance of protein and other nutrients to aid in their development and ensure they thrive.
Milk is made of up a combination of two proteins – casein and whey. But did you know, while protein is highly essential to building and maintaining muscle mass, our bodies don’t store protein in the same way as other essential food groups? For this reason, it’s even more important that when your bub is in the early stage of life, they consume enough whey protein. While in a perfect world, babies and toddlers would receive all their essential nutrients and protein from whole foods, this isn’t always possible. That’s why Aussie Bubs™ Goat Milk Formula can be the perfect supplement to your little one’s diet.
Why is goat whey so special?
Goat milk contains the highest concentration of whey protein of all milks. One study found that goat milk has almost double the amount of whey protein than cow milk. What’s more, goat milk also contains pure A2 beta-casein protein, which is naturally easier to digest and less likely to cause inflammation. It’s easy to see then why goat milk is considered so special.
Yet that’s not all, Goat milk also contains the full profile of amino acids. There are twenty amino acids which act as the building blocks of protein, nine of which are essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce. That’s why feeding your bub goat milk formula, which contains a full amino profile, plus a high concentration of whey protein, will help them flourish. Not only will it aid their muscle growth, it’s also packed with antioxidants to relieve digestive issues, and reduce tissue inflammation. That’s a real nutritional punch.
