New Zealand grass-fed whey is the most powerful and effective option for whole-body protein support, no matter what age you are or what your ultimate goals may be. Your journey towards your dream body, whether it is a healthier version of where you are now, one that is simply stronger, or a fully sculpted physique, will be made easier and more efficient with the use of XP Labs protein.
What is Grass-Fed New Zealand Whey Protein Isolate?
Derived from free-roaming cows in the lush pastures of New Zealand, this high-quality whey is naturally wholesome and packed with protein. Whey protein isolate in any form is a variety of whey that has undergone additional filtration and processing to produce a pure, easy-to-digest protein supplement. This also means that more protein is absorbed by the body per serving when compared to whey concentrates or other forms of dairy. Speaking of dairy – both whey concentrate and whey isolate come from cow’s milk, and they are both naturally extracted during the production of cheese. Whey is essentially the thin, milky substance which sometimes rises to the top of your yogurt after it has been sitting for a day. However, because that liquid has been processed and filtered, the protein content is highly condensed once it reaches its powdered state. Most whey protein concentrate supplements provide around 80% protein per serving, while the remaining 20% is made up of fats and carbohydrates. Whey isolate, however, removes far more fats and carbohydrates, resulting in a supplement which provides around 95% protein per serving. And the fact that it comes from healthy, antibiotic-free, grass-fed cows can only mean the quality is superb. After all, if the initial dairy product is already incredible, it only makes sense that the whey made from it is at a higher tier than others on the market.

What Makes the Whey in ISO XP Superior?
New Zealand is highly regarded as a world leader in the whey industry because of the country’s high standards for dairy quality in every product, including whey protein powder. Here are just some of the reasons why New Zealand is one of the most innovative sources for whey worldwide:
- Advanced processes in producing whey protein
- Fully undenatured whey
- Cold-processed isolates
- High-quality, grass-fed dairy
- Year-round pasture grazing cows
- No antibiotics, pesticides, or hormone injections such as rBST
How Does Whey Isolate Powder Like ISO XP Work?
Protein is a vital macronutrient, which means we all require a large amount of it for our bodies to function. Acting as a building block for our skeletomuscular system is one of the biggest roles that protein plays in our overall health. Without protein, protein synthesis wouldn’t be possible, which means that we wouldn’t be able to rebuild or replace damaged muscular tissues. And because repairing the microtears which naturally occur when muscular fibers are stressed is the way our muscles grow in strength and size, protein supplementation is incredibly important for anyone who is working out, hiking, training, playing sports, or otherwise leading an active lifestyle. In addition to muscle growth and repair, protein is also essential for hormone regulation as well as general cellular health and functionality. Muscle, skin, bones, organs, even veins and blood – they are all comprised of billions upon billions of microscopic cells, and without protein, we would not be able to properly produce or utilize antibodies, enzymes, basic structural cell support, or any of the numerous messenger and transportation functions which take place every second within our bodies. Protein can also assist with fat loss, as it boosts the metabolism due to its thermogenic properties. This basically means that the body requires more resources and energy to break it down, turning up the heat for your metabolic engine and burning more calories in the process.
Why Doesn’t XP Labs use Soy Lecithin in Whey?
XP Labs guarantees whey that is completely soy free. The process of agglomeration is what makes whey powdery and water-soluble, but most companies rely on soy lecithin to achieve these results. Soy lecithin is derived by using dangerous chemicals like hexane, is sometimes genetically engineered, can come from questionable sources, and is a somewhat common food allergen and irritant. Instead of soy, XP Labs uses sunflower lecithin. Sunflower lecithin is a far more natural and health-conscious choice. It is processed through a cold-press system similar to the one used to make olive oil, and it is rich in choline and other essential fatty acids. The resulting whey mixes smoothly and easily without sacrificing any of XP Labs’ exceptionally high standards for all-natural quality.
Cold Processing for Superior Protein and Incredible Benefits
Cold processing, or cross-flow microfiltration, is the production method used by XP Labs. Why does this matter? Typically, “undenatured” protein is used to refer to whey concentrate, not whey isolate. However, with cold processing, XP Labs can produce a true hydrolyzed whey protein isolate which is extremely high in immunoglobins and keeps all of the protein sub-fractions intact. With virtually no undenatured proteins, this all-natural, non-chemical process is truly an undenatured isolate that brings you the best of both worlds. Your immune system will be bolstered by the higher amount of immunoglobins (also known as antibodies) and your muscle repair and growth will have all the support necessary to help you meet and surpass your fitness goals. Furthermore, research suggests that in order for whey protein to remain in a state where it retains its biological activity, it must be processed in a low-acidity environment without excess heating and denaturing. This is exactly what cold-processing does – it avoids acids and heat to protect the nutritional value of the whey. You really could not ask for a more perfectly balanced answer to all your protein supplementation needs.
See diagram below:
The block diagram in Figure 15.1 summarizes various processes used in the treatment of whey and its end products. The first stage is filtering the curd particles left in the whey, followed by separation of casein fines and fat (Figure 15.2), partly to increase the economic yield and partly because these constituents interfere with subsequent treatment.
Production of whey powder, delactosed whey and lactose has traditionally dominated processing of whey solids. However, the increased demand for whey proteins results in approximately 40 % of processed whey solids being directed to associated products WPC35-80, whey protein isolate (WPI), lactose and permeate. The shift in the image of whey from an unwanted by-product to a highly-valuable nutritional source is complete. Read More…

ISO XP Whey Protein Isolate Aids Muscle Growth and Repair
Skeletal muscle is the most adaptable tissue in the human body, capable of remodeling itself over and over again the more we work out. As previously discussed, in order for muscles to grow, they need to go through a period of stress and then be allowed to heal. During that period of stress, the muscle fibers become damaged with microtears and cells flock to the area, multiplying and fusing to the muscles. Muscle growth can only occur when the rate of protein synthesis exceeds the rate of skeletal muscle breakdown, so having a positive net balance of available amino acids during workouts – especially during resistance training, as well as before and after any extensive lifting sessions – is essential for muscular health. Consuming quality proteins is not only the healthiest option, but it’s also the most efficient method for achieving your training goals. Whey isolate provides more protein per serving than other protein supplements and the bioavailability (speed at which the protein is available to your body) is excellent, so your muscle growth and repair will occur at a naturally higher rate than you would see without it.
XP Labs Offers You a Top-Quality Protein
Most whey proteins come from dairy cows that live in feedlots. They are fed a feed mixture of grains and mash which often has been treated with chemicals to keep it fresh or bug-free. That means the cows unfortunately do sometimes eat pesticides and they may even be eating fertilizer or other chemicals that we ourselves would never consume or even want anywhere near our kitchens. As if that weren’t bad enough, the animals are often injected with a variety of hormones and are administered antibiotics either through their feed or – you guessed it – more shots. The government of New Zealand, however, does not condone these practices, and therefore the dairy produced for New Zealand whey protein is completely free of any questionable substances. Not a single cow spends a day crammed in a smelly feedlot, standing in mud without access to the sun and munching grains from a trough. Instead, the cattle graze on naturally lush green grass along the New Zealand countryside, getting all the nutrients and health benefits they need from the rich soil and the sun. The healthier and happier the cows, the better quality of their milk, which in turn means the better quality of protein for you.
ISO XP Contains More Protein Per Serving
All isolates have a higher protein count than concentrates. A straightforward way to think of it is like this: Whey concentrate is the base. Whey isolate is then made by further processing the whey, and hydrolyzed whey is an isolate which has gone through an incredible amount of filtration to bring you the fastest-absorbing, finest-quality protein powder. All this filtration and processing is why the protein count goes up, although once whey hits the isolate level it does tend to plateau; it can be very difficult to rise above 95% protein.
Other Advantages to New Zealand Whey Isolate:
- Hormone, antibiotic, pesticide, rBST, and soy FREE
- Grass-fed cattle

What are Protein Fractions and Why Should I Care?
Protein fractions – also referred to as subfractions – are, basically, the “extra good stuff” we get from consuming dairy. However, they naturally occur in fairly minute amounts when you’re just having, say, a single glass of regular milk. When you consume whey, you’re actually taking in a very complex protein which is made up of many of these protein subfractions. Thanks to modern filtering technologies, whey protein can be processed to include higher amounts of some of the highly bioactive peptides which boost your immune system, bolster your digestive health, increase your energy reserves, and protect your body against disease and premature aging.
Is This Really CFM or is it Ion Exchange Whey?
XP Labs believes in taking the most natural approach whenever possible. Despite the possible benefits to the ion exchange process, including the large amount of protein per gram of ion exchange whey, too many protein subfractions and other vital nutrients are lost during manufacturing. This would mean those lost nutrients would, at best, have to be substituted with sub-optimal replacements after the fact in order to have the same kind of full, wholesome supplement that XP Labs can be proud of. Ion exchange also requires the use of chemicals such as hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide, which goes against XP Labs’ goals of remaining as all-natural as possible. XP Labs chooses cold-processing, or cross-flow microfiltration, because it is a much simpler and more elegant solution to bring you the most naturally healthy whey supplement possible. Cross-flow microfiltration (CFM) uses high-tech ceramic filters to “isolate” whey while retaining a very high protein content (90-95%) and calcium while removing sodium, fat, and lactose content. CFM also allows for an excellent protein subfraction profile with virtually no undenatured proteins, which means a huge amount of amino acids for all your muscle-building needs.
Why Does New Zealand Whey Cost More?
Several factors can cause a product to be more expensive than a competing brand. XP Labs has done everything possible to balance cost and quality without sacrificing a single ounce of the all-natural, healthy formula that has been a principal factor of their philosophy. Others may charge less, but they are able to do so because they have made sacrifices in quality along the way which our company did not find acceptable. Conversely, some brands in competition with XP Labs may even charge up to two or three times as much for a lesser product, putting far less effort into their formula. Issues such as transportation, care and treatment of cattle, research, importation, grazing practices, proper collection and storage methods, and processing are all elements which can influence the quality and cost of whey protein.
Can Lactose Intolerant People Take Whey Protein?
Generally speaking, yes. Whey isolate is extremely low in lactose and will not bother most people who are lactose intolerant. The isolation process removes approximately 99% of lactose as well as the majority of all milkfats. The lactose content is so low that whey isolate shakes can even be used as a milk substitute in cereals for people who prefer not to use regular lactose-free dairy products. However, if you are extremely lactose intolerant, you should still test it out carefully first, or consult with your doctor. And if you are allergic to milkfats, not lactose intolerant, XP Labs strongly advises you to discuss with your physician about whether or not whey protein is appropriate for you.
XP Labs’ New Zealand Whey is Great for All Fitness Levels
XP Labs designs every formula with real people in mind – athletes, bodybuilders, weekend gym-goers, seniors, hikers, fitness professionals, and more. Everyone needs protein. The great thing about whey is that XP Labs can provide the quality and the guidance, and you as the consumer can tailor the product to your needs. Need to have more shakes and stack it with bodybuilding supplements to sculpt your physique? No problem. Want to take it as a protein booster because you’re getting older and want to stay active? Perfect! At the end of the day, it’s your satisfaction, happiness, and health that matters.
Superior Muscle Support for Everyone
It’s not just professional athletes and bodybuilders who need protein. Almost everyone, especially aging adults, can benefit from having more wholesome, low-fat proteins in their diet. Many people get enough protein in their diets to get by, but not enough for working out or protecting their muscles against the natural aging process. Whey isolate is not only convenient to use as a supplement, but it’s fast-absorbing, versatile, and exceptionally nutritious. A protein shake can be taken with you on a hike or to the gym, and recent studies suggest that supplementing during a workout is best for protecting against muscle degradation as well as boosting your post-exercise muscle growth. Not only that, but protein supplementation throughout the day (approximately three times a day, with meals) is extremely helpful in maintaining a healthy weight and protecting against the loss of skeletal muscle tissue in people who are middle-aged or older. However, if you are training, or a professional athlete, or even just getting started with a workout program, New Zealand whey is still an amazing choice for all your protein supplement needs. Bottom line: No matter what level of fitness you are looking to achieve, XP Labs can help you get there quickly, efficiently, safely, and naturally.
Gain Muscle Mass with Protein Supplementation
XP Labs has all the tools you need to build muscle however you wish. Want lean muscle? ISO-XP is perfect for your training, providing you with up to 50 grams of protein (25 grams per scoop) and under one gram of fat per serving, along with extremely low carbs (4 grams or less, depending on your portion size) and very low sodium, sugar, and cholesterol. If bulking up or training for long hours is more your thing, try combining ISO-XP with Glyco-XP to give your body the fuel it needs for extended sessions at the gym. Whatever your objective, however, you will achieve lean muscle mass in the amount you desire more efficiently than with any other whey. And as if that weren’t helpful enough, keeping and maintaining your new muscle growth and lean body will be easier than ever before. As your body increases its skeletal muscle mass, your metabolism will need to work harder to keep you going – which, of course, means more fat burning.
ISO XP is a Nutrition Solution for Hypoglycemic and Active Lifestyles
One of the great things about whey is that it can travel with you very easily. If you have access to water or a vending machine, all you have to do is carry a small mixer cup or another convenient container of your choice with a scoop of powder in it. A different option would be to carry a pre-made shake, much like some people carry around a coffee or a smoothie. If you need more calories throughout the day, this is a simple, nutritious, low-cost solution that will not only keep you feeling full but will also allow you to keep on moving throughout your day. And if you struggle with hypoglycemia, mixing your whey protein isolate with a carbohydrate-containing choice such as chocolate milk, juice, or instant oatmeal can help keep your blood sugar levels even for a longer period of time than consuming carbs alone. It’s a much better choice for your body than chowing down on a candy bar, and it will help keep you satisfied, unlike a simple sugar bomb or plain juice. For those who want to really maximize their supplementation, ISO-XP and Glyco-XP can be combined and carried with you throughout the day – both for a quick shake for the active athlete and for anyone who has issues with hypoglycemia.
Maintain Consistent Energy Levels Throughout the Day
Whey isolates pack a powerful punch before, during, and after a workout. Not only does whey fuel your muscles and help you build the body you desire, but it also keeps you going just like a typical meal or snack would. Any excess protein gets converted into energy. Even if you are not hitting the gym every day, a boost of protein three times a day is beneficial for protecting your muscle fibers from breaking down as you age. It’s also an excellent way to provide your body with enough nutrients to build muscle and keep your energy levels flowing if you regularly exercise through other means, such as biking, walking, swimming, or hiking. And if you frequently suffer from bouts of tiredness, you could be depriving yourself of quality calories without even knowing it. Sipping on a protein shake may be a good way to provide yourself with some quality, nutrient-rich, thermogenic calories. You won’t be adding to your waistline, but you will be adding to your energy reserves. It’s a win-win!
How and When to Take Whey for the Perfect Routine
For optimal results, experts recommend 1 to 3 servings of whey protein per day. One serving should be taken immediately after you work out; the other two are typically taken in the morning and evening. Simply add one heaping scoop to your beverage of choice, mix well, and enjoy. If you prefer, you can use whey in any number of recipes instead. Whey at breakfast-time, for example, is excellent when mixed with yogurt and berries, oatmeal, or pancake mix. Between uses, whey should always be stored in a cool, dry place.
What Can ISO XP be Stacked With?
New Zealand whey protein isolate stacks very well with many common bodybuilding supplements. Popular choices include creatine, BCAAs, L-glutamine, and L-leucine. Whey isolate can even be stacked with casein protein for an all-day protein surge. For the most efficient way to fuel your body throughout even the toughest workouts and hardest training sessions, however, try stacking whey isolate with GlycoXP, a revolutionary fat burning carbohydrate formula from XP Labs.
