FAST FACTS

Fast Fact

Protein is a macronutrient that is vital for children’s growth and development, especially during adolescence when they experience major growth spurts. However, research shows that one in seven school-aged children in the U.S. do not meet their daily protein intake goals.

Fast Fact

Protein is a slow-digesting nutrient, which is needed for the repair and growth of muscles and tissues. At the same time, protein is also essential for the production of enzymes and hormones. During teenage, children experience rapid changes in their physical development.

Fast Fact

Protein needs are based on age, sex, body weight and stage of development, with teens needing between 10 to 30% of their daily calories from protein. Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) provides a good reference. The RDA for protein is 46 grams for teenage girls and 52 grams for teenage boys per day.

Fast Fact

Protein is a hard- working nutrient, needed for the growth and repair of muscles and tissues, and the production of enzymes and hormones. Proteins provide the building blocks, called amino acids and polypeptides, of all muscle tissue.

INGREDIENTS

TVP

Vitamin Premix

Stress Support

Teen Vitamin Premix (TVP) is a blend of 12 highly bioavailable vitamins, consisting of Vitamin A, D3, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, Folic Acid and Biotin. These vitamins are involved in key bodily functions like energy production, macronutrient metabolism, production of red blood cell and the maintenance of normal skin, vision and psychological function.

Wellness

Minerals

Chelated Minerals

Immune Support

Bioteen’s Whey Protein contains a blend of 8 highly bioavailable chelated minerals consisting of Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Iron, Copper, Chromium, Molybdenum and Boron. These minerals play essential roles like protein synthesis, antioxidant protection, bone formation, maintenance of normal muscle and immune function and assisting normal carbohydrate metabolism.

Wellness

Ferrochel

Iron Chelate

Oxygen Transport

Ferrochel® is a highly bioavailable form of iron. As teens grow, their muscle mass increases and blood volume expands, along with the onset of menstruation in girls. This increases their need for iron. Iron is vital for many functions like red blood cell and haemoglobin formation which are critical for oxygen transport, for normal immune function and for cognitive development.

Wellness

Prebiotics

Inulin

Gut Health

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are carbohydrates that are isolated from chicory root. FOS do not get digested until they reach the colon where they are digested by good bacteria. This helps them to grow, which is why they are used as prebiotics. Prebiotics act as food for probiotics (good bacteria). The latter help reinforce immunity, ensure a healthy digestive tract and support mood and mental function.

Wellness

Whey Protein

Whey Protein Concentrate

Muscle Repair

The Whey Protien used by Bioteen in our products is a native whey protein concentrate made from whole milk that is free from antibiotics and hormones (rBHG).

Whey Protein is a dairy protein source that digests easily and supplies alll the essential amino acids (EAA) to support growth and development, the production of protein-based biomolecules like hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters and antibodies. Whey protein also supports immunity and antioxidant enzymes in the body.

REVIEWS

8 reviews for Whey Protein

  1. Efrat Mazor

    My kids love making smoothies with this. Reading through the ingredients and checking the small details, I am very happy to give it to my children.

  2. Josh Johnson

    I have this after every gym session and I love both the chocolate and vanilla flavours. It’s the best whey protein Ive tasted. My mum makes protein waffles with this for my breakfast most mornings.

  3. Anel (verified owner)

    A great source of healthy, teen ‘safe’ protein. With so many products available, but almost all designed for adults, this is a great way to add healthy protein to my busy teen’s diet – either as part of smoothies or as an in-between meal/snack.

  4. Michelle Fourie

    My son loves this. He is in his optimum growth years, so this helps to build the muscles he needs without the sugar and unnecessary other things.

  5. Samantha (verified owner)

    A delicious tasting Whey Protein. Great to start the day by adding to a breakfast smoothie.

  6. Angela (verified owner)

    My 15 year old has started focusing hard on his sport and needed a boost. We have used Bioteen Whey Protein for 2 months now. He enjoyed both the vanilla and the chocolate and can feel a difference when training. We will order more.

  7. Kathy (verified owner)

    My boys don’t like eating breakfast in the mornings, so my next best option was to get them the Whey Protein Shake, they love the flavour, the stevia taste is quite strong, but they seem to like it. And at least I know they are getting something in for the morning.

  8. Heidi Fenton (verified owner)

    Great tasting and a real life saver. I have two very busy and active teen boys and often we run short of time between activities for a proper meal. They love this product as a supplement to a snack and I feel reassured that it contains all the right ingredients for them.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, the teenage years are tough. Besides everything that is going on emotionally, your teen’s physical body is also undergoing quite a transformation. Nutrition is the cornerstone of supporting your growing teen and getting enough energy, macro and micronutrients is vital to support proper growth and development as well as increased activity. Protein is one of the most important macronutrients to consider at this critical time.

 

One of the reasons why protein is such an important nutrient is because in its simplest form, as amino acids, it forms the building blocks for cell development, growth and repair (1). This goes for muscle cells, hormones (like testosterone and growth hormone), transport cells that move iron into the blood and even the antibodies of the immune system.

 

Having enough protein, however, is only one piece of the puzzle. To ensure that the protein is used as a building block, the diet must contain enough energy, otherwise any additional protein will simply be used as an energy source. That’s why focusing on a healthy, well balanced diet should be the first step with additional, easy to consume protein sources for those who need it. Bioteen’s Whey Protein is the perfect addition to your teen’s morning smoothie or healthy pancake mix because it adds the balance of extra protein to go along with the rest of a healthy, whole food diet.

 

We know that getting teens to choose the right foods at the right times is not always an easy feat, that’s why Bioteen’s Whey Protein is a great choice to meet the needs of those teens who may not be reaching their protein goals. Our Whey Protein contains a unique mix of native whey protein, Teen Vitamin and Albion® mineral premix, Ferrochel® as well as Fibersol-2® to support your teen’s health in a number of ways.

 

Whey protein a high-quality protein that is easy to absorb

Whey is a milk protein, it is considered to have a high biological value (HBV) because it contains all 9 essential amino acids and is generally very well absorbed, meaning very little goes to waste. We have specifically included a special form of whey in our products called native whey protein (2). In comparison to the more common whey protein concentrate, which is a byproduct of cheese production, native whey protein is produced by the filtration of unprocessed milk. This production method is desirable because it leaves the whey proteins intact and also produces whey with a higher leucine content. Leucine is an essential amino acid that is both a signal and substrate for muscle protein synthesis, which is why it is very important for active teens with growing muscles.

 

Whey, Fibersol-2® and our micronutrient mix support your teen’s immune system

Beyond being a great source of protein, which immune cells use to develop, grow and repair themselves, whey also contains biologically active molecules that may have a beneficial effect on immune health (1). To add to this immune supporting benefit, the prebiotic fiber Fibersol-2® acts as ‘food’ for the gut microbiome, helping it to produce beneficial substances like short chain fatty acids, which strengthen the physical gut barrier and regulate your immune response. In addition to this, prebiotics (like Fibersol-2®) also actively help to flush out invading pathogens minimizing the chances that they can make you sick (3).

 

Our added vitamin and mineral mix means nothing is missing

Protein-containing foods generally contain a host of vitamins and minerals that are important for proper growth and development. To ensure that your teen gets all these nutrients in a convenient package, we have also included our unique Teen Vitamin and Albion® mineral premix. In addition to this, we have also included iron in the form of  Ferrochel® because nutrient surveys have consistently shown that teens are often getting less of this important mineral that their growing bodies need (4). Iron is vital for proper red blood cell development and assists in the transport of oxygen in the body. A deficiency in iron can result in iron deficiency anemia, with symptoms like fatigue and weakness. When it comes to active teen’s, various studies have found that iron supplementation among iron-deficient athletes improves their iron status and exercise performance (5).

 

Our supplements are safe and third party tested

One of the scary things about commercial protein supplements is that they are not generally very well regulated. This means that the manufacturers don’t always disclose what they put in the supplement on their label. Because protein supplements are so closely tied to increased muscle mass, the risk here is that the supplement may be laced with illegal additives which can be harmful to your teen’s health. At Bioteen, we put your mind at ease by investing in state-of-the-art manufacturing. Not only do we source all the raw materials ourselves (meaning we have total control over what goes into our products) but we also carefully select third party certified contract manufacturers to produce our products. This means that you can be guaranteed that all the ingredients in the Bioteen range are safe to consume.

 

The bottom line

Bioteen’s Whey Protein goes beyond offering extra protein. We have carefully curated this product to ensure that your teen gets the highest quality protein with maximal benefits together with immune and health supporting ingredients in a tasty, easy to drink and convenient package. Our Whey Protein is ideal for teens not meeting their protein needs and can easily be added to their existing diet to give them the nutrient boost they need to reach their full potential.
