If you haven’t already, then we suggest you take a look over the frozen yogurt nutrition page to get yourself acquainted with the general health benefits of frozen yogurt, and then come back to this page to learn all about our high protein froyo version specifically formulated for athletes and alike.
After water, protein is the most abundant molecule in the human body and is the major structural component in all human cells. Protein is extremely vital to our lives and well being. It helps to develop and maintain lean muscle and contributes to healthy bones so we can stay active and efficient.
Protein is made up of amino acids of which 9 are known as ‘essential’ and 11 others known as ‘non-essential’ and ‘conditional’ amino acids. These 9 amino acids are known as ‘essential’ because they cannot be made by the human body alone. They must be obtained through our diet, and as such, consuming foods that have them in abundance is very important to a healthy life.
Whey Protein Isolate is used in our high protein frozen yogurt, and has all 9 ‘essential’ and 11 ‘non-essential’ amino acids. It is completely natural, and easily (not to mention rapidly) absorbed by the body. In fact it is so soluble and seemlessly digested that it has the highest bio-availabilty of any protein.
– Elite athletes include protein in their diet to develop and repair lean muscle after strenuous aerobic and resistance training.
– Those struggling to achieve an ideal weight choose to eat higher volumes of protein to lower insulin response and therefore control glucose absorption.
– Muscles and organs of infants and children grow so quickly, protein, which is also present in breast milk, can help facilitate their growth.
– It is increasingly difficult to maintain lean muscle mass and bone strength as you age, protein aids in the repair and recovery of muscle atrophy and decreases bone loss.
Our high protein frozen yogurt is a great pre or post workout snack, & is also creamier in taste & texture (than our natural frozen yogurt): making it an ideal substitute for ice-cream! So if you are on the hunt for a high protein yogurt, or a high protein dessert… you’ve definitely come to the right place. We’ve served our high protein froyo at gym launches, crossfit boxes, bootcamps, & other health and fitness events… to much delight and satisfaction of our patrons! Let us cater for your crowd 🙂
