Your powder formula must be blended together to ensure even distribution of ingredients in each bottle.
Once all ingredients in your formula are blended they are filled in your bottle or bag of choice. We offer amazing packaging options to fill your powder with.
Each powder bottle is polished of any excess powder for a clean finished look and triple inspected for any defects
After powder is manufactured, post inspection we run identity, potency, micro, and heavy metal tests to ensure pharmaceutical grade quality.
Custom Protein Powder Manufacturing
In the health and wellness industry, protein manufacturing is at an all-time high due to its surge in demand. To be unique to the many protein brand competitors, you’ll need the best tasting, nutrient-rich, ready-to-manufacture protein.
Our team is superior in protein manufacturing because we have our facility in-house and we are bodybuilding enthusiasts outside of work.
We are at the summit of protein manufacturing because we have 20+ years of experience! Your protein will be created using the highest quality ingredients. Your protein can be ready in as little as 4-6 weeks!
Step One: Select & Study Your Target Market
In fact, the list of available protein sources is very long. This is where marketing comes into play. As you design your product, do so based on the audience that you want to buy your product. These might include:
- Weight lifters and bodybuilders
- Health conscious consumers
- Outdoor enthusiasts such as long-trek hikers and wilderness explorers.
Who you target as your audience generally dictates the general guidelines of your protein powder product
There are many different types of protein available. Your choice of protein depends on what kind of consumers are in your target market.
We offer quality production through state-of-the-art processing so that your end product is perfect for your target market.
Step Two: Decide Which Type of Protein Source to Use
Most Popular Proteins Are But Not Limited To:
- Whey protein – from milk
- Egg protein
- Soy protein
- Lentil protein
- Rice protein
- Hydrolyzed bone broth protein
- Collagen protein
- Angus beef protein
- Plant based protein
- Pea protein
- Hemp protein
- Casein protein
Step Three: Order Your Protein Through Contract Manufacturing
Unless you own the proper manufacturing/ lab equipment yourself, it is not cost effective to mass produce your own protein powder. To have a custom protein powder manufactured you must hire a contract manufacturer.
Protein comes from the foods we eat, such as rice, soybeans, lentils, etc. Yet, what you are creating is only the protein portion of that food source. To obtain just the protein an extraction process is used and there are a variety of extraction processes available such as cold pressing, concentrates process, or isolates.
The protein powder manufacturing is complex and in the case of protein isolates, such as you see with Whey. The goal is to separate the protein from the whole-food. With whey protein, they use one of three methods:
- Water wash
- Alcohol wash
- Ionization technique.
Each method has considerations such as cost and end product quality.
Once the protein is separated it must be filtered. For example with whey, they use a decreasing micron filtration system that forces out the liquid but keeps the protein.
Step Four: Creating Specialized Protein Through Manufacturing
End users may want something more than just protein. In the case of bodybuilders, they are often concerned with how fast the protein supplement is absorbed. To satisfy these types of market requirements a process called protein hydrolyzed is used.
The first thing to understand is that proteins are long chains of amino acids. To help the body to absorb the protein quickly, the hydrolyzed process breaks the long chains into smaller chains by diluting them with water. The smaller chains are referred to as peptides and they generally are called small chain peptides because they are constructed of 2-5 amino acids.
You can also use an ion-exchange method to separate proteins from food sources. The process uses physics to literally separate protein atoms from the rest of the food process.
Once the protein manufacturing has separated the protein from the food matter and verified its concentration, it is generally milled so that the powder is of consistent size. Certification of a protein product is also important. It helps your consumer base understand that the labeling information is true and accurate, especially if you are aiming for a niche market such as organic consumers.
When it comes to product certification, it is best to use an outside lab to verify results. For protein powders, one of the biggest pieces of information is the protein by weight metric.
Step Five: Shipping Your Custom Protein Bulk Order
The very last step in the process is to package and ship your product. The process to create your own protein supplement is easier when you work with a quality lab.
Some labs require large batch-processing, while others will except small-batch orders. If you are interested in turn key services for your own protein powder as a supplement, we can deliver.
Package and Label Design Options For Protein Manufacturing
Your protein can be bottled in a large selection of package options.
Our team of nutraceutical specialized graphic designers are ready to make your label look incredible and comply with all required FDA label regulations.
In fact, working with a quality manufacturer makes creating your own brand of protein powder a simple process. We explore the steps involved in creating a marketable product.
