YOU'LL FIND NO SHORTCUTS IN OUR PROTEIN FAM!
BRIDGE is our pantry staple protein. It’s a versatile protein blend that works well on its own, mixed with water or milk, or in baked goods and high protein recipes. It is a premium blend of two branded proteins from the world’s leading whey producer: Whey protein concentrate and heat stable whey protein hydrolysate.
Our whey protein concentrate is 82.5% protein and is derived from fresh, sweet dairy whey processed by a proprietary cross-flow filtration, agglomeration and surface treatment resulting in a premium luscious protein with an excellent amino acid profile and low lactose content. The Rolls-Royce of proteins, our whey protein hydrolysate is heat stable, highly digestible and 82% protein. It is derived from fresh, sweet dairy whey processed by a proprietary cross-flow filtration process. The concentrate is then enzymatically hydrolysed to produce a mixture of peptides and free form amino acids for enhanced functional and nutritional benefits.
Apart from whey protein concentrate and whey protein hydrolysate, the only other ingredients added to our protein blend are flavours, xanthan gum, sucralose, our METALAB digestive enzyme blend as well as the patented ingredient AstraGin®. AstraGin® is a patented 100% natural compound that increases absorption of many vital nutrients specifically protein and amino acids and thus promoting a healthy gut environment. AstraGin® promotes a healthy gut lining and tight junction functioning- ultimately leading to associated effects like reduced inflammation in the intestinal lining. This ensures that your body gets the most benefit from each scoop of protein you consume and becomes healthier at the same time. METALAB is the only protein in South Africa that contains AstraGin®.
Together the above creates our premium BRIDGE protein.
Our BRIDGE protein has a smooth, luscious mouthfeel with a balanced gourmet flavour profile.
BRIDGE is ideal for almost anyone wanting to supplement their protein intake with a premium whey protein blend.
Featuring a blend of three branded whey proteins:
- Whey protein concentrate 80%
- Whey protein isolate 90% and
- Whey protein hydrolysate
This creates a protein that is full of flavour with a luxurious mouthfeel!
After many hours tinkering with formulas and recipes we landed on a whey protein that delivers hard on flavour and texture!
With just water and few shakes of the shaker you will have a milkshake like consistency and texture!
We work directly with various flavour houses to achieve our gourmet, daily drinkable flavour profiles that are sure to please your taste buds on the daily!
We believe in leaving our mark on your fitness journey but not the environment!
That is why we only work with dairy farms that support sustainable dairy farming and recycle water in the manufacturing process.
The cows are grass fed and their precious milk is ethically farmed for a tasty and consistent batch of whey every time!
Featuring AstraGin!A clinically proven gut health and absorption aid, you will know that each sip you take is being fully absorbed for maximum effects and value per scoop!
AstraGin has been proven to specifically improve the absorption of protein and amino acids ensuring you maximize the effects of your METALAB proteins!
On top of this, all our proteins contain our blend of METALAB digestive enzymes to ensure our protein is easy on your gut no matter how many servings you decide to chug down!
All of our proteins are proudlyartificial colourant free!
No nasty dyes here fam!
All our protein batches are consistent in protein content, lactose content and amino acid content every time!
We only use one protein supplier to prevent fluctuations in quality. All our proteins are tested for heavy metals and bacteria to ensure your safety with every sip.
We will provide testing certificates on demand, so feel free to reach out fam!
Well, there are three main types of whey proteins that are going to be predominantly used throughout most protein products. These forms of proteins are:
Whey protein concentrate (WPC) - this can be anywhere between 20% protein to 80% protein depending on quality. Meaning that 100g of WPC will contain anywhere between 20g to 80g protein per 100g serving. This will also be your cheapest form of good quality protein outside of your lesser quality protein sources.
Whey protein isolate (WPI) - this is generally 90% to 95% protein! It is extremely high quality and generally contains zero fat, zero carbs and no lactose. It is very readily absorbed by the body and has the most research in showing its benefits for metabolic output and muscle growth and recovery.
Whey protein hydrolysate (WPH) - this is the Rolls Royce of proteins. It is also about 90% to 95% protein etc however, it has been slightly pre-digested exposing its peptides. This allows the body to digest and utilize it on a level that WPC and WPI just cannot match! With the above being said, for each type of protein you will get different qualities and bio-availability.
We pride ourselves in using proteins sourced from USA and Europe that are of an extremely high quality for the best dietary use. Our ISO-Bridge protein has higher bio availability than eating chicken or eggs and contains zero lactose! So if we look at our two products:
BRIDGE - This protein is more WPC based with a small amount of WPI and WPH. This allows us to price the product at a more competitive price due to the WPC being the cheaper to source of the three. This product is still extremely high quality and will beat all other proteins on the local market with similar protein ratios. You will notice this in texture and very low fat and carb numbers.
ISO-BRIDGE - This protein is only WPI and WPH - The two highest quality proteins combined making this a very premium protein product and suited to those who want to invest in the best.One thing to note however, is that a WPC dominant protein like BRIDGE will always have a better texture due to higher milk solids.Our ISO is still amazing though! With both our proteins we have added AstraGin which is a pharmaceutical grade patented ingredient used to increase protein and amino acid absorption. This ensures that every gram of protein in our shakes is absorbed. Other protein powder powders that do not contain AstraGin have much lower absorption rates. On top of this, both of our proteins have our own blend of digestive enzymes to ensure maximum digestibility and gut health when using our proteins.
No. Our protein is currently dairy derived. However, we do have a vegan protein available!
ALL OUR PROTEINS ARE FULLY HALAAL CERTIFIED.
Our proteins are not certified kosher however, all ingredients are kosher and made in a kosher certified facility.
