Ingredients: 100% Pure Coconut! Nothing else! Buy it here!

Commercial coconut milks and creams are generally sold in cans, or sometimes boxes and tetra packs. The main ingredient in these products is water. If the fat content is 17%, it is called “coconut milk.” If the fat content is 24%, it is called “coconut cream.” But most of what you are purchasing is water. Coconut Cream Concentrate, on the other hand, has NO water, and is pure coconut. Unlike the commercial varieties, it also contains ALL the fiber of the coconut. Pure, dried coconut contains more fiber per gram than even oat bran! This fiber has been stripped out of commercial coconut milks and coconut creams. Also, almost all commercial coconut milks and creams have additives to prevent the water from separating from the coconut oil, and also have sulfites added to keep it white longer. Sometimes these additives are so small, that the FDA does not require them to list them on their labels as ingredients. Coconut Cream Concentrate, however, contains NO additives and NO preservatives at all: it is 100% natural coconut made from Philippine coconuts grown without pesticides or fertilizers.

goat-milk-protein-powder

The goats at Mt. Capra Farms in Washington State are free range allowing them to enjoy life the way nature intended. The food supply offered to each goat is free of pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones and antibiotics. Their goats have a laid back lifestyle and the incredible nutritional quality of their milk is captured in their gentle and unique production methods and transferred into the products they produce. Buy it right here!

What is Goat-Milk Protein?

Our Goat-Milk Protein is a premium quality goat-milk protein powder. It is minimally processed from goat milk collected directly from farms to preserve it’s original composition. Most other milk protein powders are made from cow milk and use several harsh processing steps including heating at high temperature. Goat-Milk Protein contains all essential amino acids for optimal health and is tolerated well by most people. Goat-Milk Protein is partially predigested (lacto-fermented). This process assists digestion and absorption while providing the body with beneficial probiotics and enzymes.

This is the highest quality goat-milk protein powder available. It is made from goats-milk that contains no antibiotics or growth hormones. Goat-milk Protein is high in amino acids and is a complete protein source. These building blocks of protein are crucial for optimal health. Goat-Milk Protein provides a balanced combination of whey protein and milk protein. Most animal protein supplements (from cows milk) only provide one part of the proteins found in milk. We are convinced that a combination of milk protein and whey protein is superior. Goat-Milk Protein also provides a favorable ratio of potassium to sodium.
