All about our Evowhey Protein 2.0: WPC 80% – 450 Instant by Fonterra

Want to know what’s behind the Fonterra raw material that we use at HSN to make our SportSeries Evowhey Protein 2.0 and RawSeries Whey Protein Concentrate 80% 2.0?

We don’t hide anything! So get ready to read, analysis reports included, just what is behind the raw material used to make our star product: Evowhey 2.0 and its over 30 different flavours 😉

We’ll discover the particularities that it has depending on its manufacturing location, that’s to say, depending on its origin before coming to our HSN factory. Do you dare to find out more?

What’s the origin of the raw material used in Evowhey 2.0?

First, I’ll leave you a little guide for everything we’re going to look at…

Infograph Fonterra Evowhey

HSN Infograph, where does Evowhey Protein 2.0 come from?

As many of you know, and as the title of the article reflects, the raw material used to make Evowhey Protein 2.0 and WPC 80% 2.0 is the 80% protein standardised whey concentrate manufactured by the Fonterra brand.

And who are Fonterra exactly?

It’s a cooperative of New Zealand-origin that extends all over the world. In addition, it is currently one of the largest manufacturers of dairy products, hence its recognition.

In Europa, Fonterra has different manufacturing plants where the WPC-80% is made, which is what we use at HSN to make our products:

  • ROKISKIO SURIS AB (Lithuania).
  • The Lake District Creamery (United Kingdom).
  • Fonterra Europe Manufacturing B.V. (Netherlands).

Lorries arrive at the HSN factory with Fonterra raw material from one of three different points of origin, according to availability of the Fonterra products at that moment.

Can we choose a preferred point of origin? Yes, as at HSN we have an order of priority marked over the factory of origin of the Fonterra raw material, although if our first choice doesn’t have stock of WPC 80% – 450 Instant, we use one of the other two.

What I do assure you is that the raw material of Evowhey Protein 2.0 y Whey Protein Concentrate 80% 2.0 is always Fonterra.

Where are the fonterra factories?

And does the change in origin change anything in the the raw material?

This is something I want to clarify in this post, since, although the three produce a nutritionally equivalent product, there are certain differences depending on their origin.

Don’t miss out, we explain it below!

Let’s analyse the Fonterra WPC 80 raw material

First of all, I want to show you the batch analysis certificates used in the HSN factory for the development of the SportSeries Evowhey Protein 2.0, according to the origin of the raw material.

Fonterra from Lithuania 1

Fonterra from United Kingdom

When the origin is the Fonterra factory in the United Kingdom.

Fonterra from Netherlands

Fonterra raw material WPC 80% from its factory in the Netherlands.

Aspects that I want to highlight and that do not go unnoticed…

If we look, independent of origin, at the protein, carbohydrate (dairy), fat and moisture percentages, they are all very similar, not even reaching 2% in difference.

And what might be the cause of this variation?

This means that the nutritional and organoleptic level can be considered equivalent, however, these small variations do affect the appearance of the product. (Evans et al., 2010; Lammert et al., 2013).

Changes in appearance according to the origin of the raw material

Next I’ll set out a description of the appearance of each raw material WPC 80% from Fonterra, according to its factory of origin.

To avoid possible confusion or misunderstandings, I’ll support each with pictures taken in our HSN factory.

Fonterra with factory of origin ROKISKIO SURIS AB

Fonterra Lithuania

The product manufactured in Lithuania has a spongy appearance, with a whitish colour reminiscent of fresh milk.

Produced in The Lake District Creamery factory in the United Kingdom…

Fonterra Uk

The consistency of this raw material is similar to the first one because of its fluffy aspect, but its colour is more yellowish, like a kind of light butter.

The third raw material is that coming from Fonterra Europe Manufacturing B.V. in the Netherlands…

Fonterra Netherlands

This may be the most striking. Although in terms of colouring it is similar to the British product, the appearance of the product differs from the other two in a more marked way.

It is characterised by a medium loose powder appearance and less fluffy than the proteins manufactured in Lithuania and the UK. Again, they all come from the same brand and are nutritionally equivalent.

The characteristics of each of the WPC 80 by Fonterra raw materials are striking, aren’t they?

As I said, I was going to present the characteristics of each one supported by images, so that you can see any differences in appearance…

Fonterra all origins

The pictures were taken in the HSN laboratories, where we receive the Fonterra raw material beore using it to make our Evowhey Protein 2.0 and WPC 80% 2.0.

Do these changes affect the quality of Evowhey Protein 2.0 or Whey Protein Concentrate 80% 2.0?

The answer is, resoundingly, NO.

At HSN, when we validate a raw material, we ensure it complies at all levels:

  • Nutritional values.
  • Organoleptic parameters (taste, texture, aroma) in the finished product.
  • Absence of any contaminant.

Evowhey protein HSN

When selecting the Fonterra products, it wasn’t an exception.

Although we have seen that there are differences in the appearance of the powder, the sensory quality in terms of taste, texture and compatibility with our range of flavours is perfect, regardless of the original manufacturing plant.

Therefore, saving a possible difference at a visual level of the powdered product, we can say that…

When to take Evowhey protein 20 HSN

There is no change that affects neither the nutritional level nor the organoleptic level in the final product, not in the flavoured versions (Evowhey Protein 2.0) or when we consume it in its pure version (Whey Protein Concentrate 80% 2.0).

Why do these variations in the raw material exist?

It’s completely normal for there to be certain variations in nutritional values. And not just between different origins, but also between batches of the protein coming from the same production plant.

We should bear in mind that the raw material used at the start of the production process, that’s to say, the milk itself, is obtained from grass-fed cows.

It’s logical that the composition of the grass will be more variable than that of standardised feed, and that this in turn will translate into certain compositional changes in the milk itself. However, it does contribute to a higher nutritional quality of the final product.

Cows grazing

It’s important to note that these variations are always within the tolerated ranges so that the product can be considered equivalent, as recommended by the European Commission through the Directorate-General for Health and Consumer.

It should not be forgotten that despite the fact that processing at an industrial level is carried out in a similar way, i.e. the stages by which the powdered product is obtained are the same; the conditions are not replicated 100% between one manufacturer and another, which also contributes to the product’s own nuances.

In any case, there is no food on the market with a low degree of processing that provides invariable nutritional values. In fact, nutritional tables are drawn up on the basis of representative average values obtained from several production batches.

Why consume Evowhey Protein 2.0 and Whey Protein Concentrate 80% 2.0?

Because you’ll be consuming a protein of the highest quality at a nutritional and organoleptic level, regardless of any changes in the product’s appearance.

The variations mentioned in this article are nothing more than merely aestheitc points and are due to the fact that the primary ingredient is manufactured in three different geographical locations: Lithuania, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

It’s true that this fact slightly affects the proportion of macronutrients and the production process stages of the the raw material of our Evowhey Protein 2.0 and Whey Protein Concentrate 80% 2.0 products.

However, we can assure you that these facts only have an impact at an appearance level, they don’t have any affect on the nutritional value.
