ETB FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q- What is the difference between the Naturally Grass-Fed Protein and the Bare Isolate protein?
A- The Naturally whey is a grass-fed whey concentrate protein that uses an all natural sweetener that comes from the leaves of a stevia plant. The naturally has 20 grams of protein vs the 24-25 grams in the Bare Isolate protein. The Bare Isolate is the purest form of protein which is why you receive a higher yield of protein per serving. However, the Isolate is sweetened with sucralose to help aid in the delicious flavors we carry. Both are high quality proteins that contain only 5 ingredients or less. Both protein powders are also Non-GMO and taste amazing! If you prefer a natural sweetener chose the Naturally Whey however, if taste is your preference go with our Isolate protein.
Q-On the Whey Isolate it says recommended for pre and post workouts, is there any caffeine added?
A- There is not any caffeine added. We list all of our ingredients on our labels. The whey protein isolate can be taken an hour before your workout to give you the fuel to power through your routine or as a muscle recovery shake after an intense workout.
Q- What does cold filtered mean?
A- ETB's Pure Isolate Whey Protein is cold filtered, preserving the DNA structure of crucial enzymes and peptides, containing less other ingredients than any pure isolate protein on the market. These expensive filtration techniques are specifically designed to remove impurities without filtering out the vital sub-fractions. What you're left with is a whey protein that contains little in the way of impurities and offers the additional health benefits of a fully intact whey protein. This process ensures a higher percentage of critical branch-chain amino acids.
Q- Where do you source your ingredients?
A- Everything is sourced within the United States.
Q- Is it gluten free?
A- The isolate is gluten free in all flavors except Ice Cream Sandwich due to the cookie wafers.
Q- Is it lactose free?
A- Yes our Bare Isolate is lactose free. Our other proteins do contain traces of lactose however, our naturally powder has had great feedback from customers who usually have issues with consuming whey protein but not with ours.
Q- The label on the Pure Isolate says 98% lactose free. Why is that if you just said that the Pure Isolate is Lactose Free?
A- Due to FDA requirements and legal standards, we have to do that in the unlikely event the FDA found a single trace in just one of their samples. So to be on the safe side we always say 98% but most people, who have issues with lactose tolerance, have never had an issue.
Q- Are you FDA approved?
A- The FDA doesn't approve sports nutrition products. They do however inspect and audit our production plant in New Jersey and there's never been an issue.
