Protein Powder Manufacturing

Here we may help you get any private label protein powder formula made. Getting the right team to do this is vital to success, and we are more than qualified to help you efficiently and quickly manufacture your white label protein powder.

Step One: Select & Study Your Target Market

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
  • Diabetics
  • Dieters
  • Health-conscious consumers
  • Vegans
  • Vegetarians
  • 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
  • etc.

Whey protein powder has risen to the top of the game. It is ubiquitous, and it is easy to see why. When you analyze whey protein further, you find it is a mixture of proteins isolated from whey, which is the liquid part of milk that forms during the production of cheese. Whey protein is filled with amino acids, including both leucine and cysteine. The common benefits that are believed to come from whey protein include aid in muscle growth, promoting weight loss, reducing blood pressure, and reducing blood sugar levels.

Vegan protein powder has also emerged as a new industry favorite. Pea, soy, rice, and peanut protein powder all fall under the category of vegan and organic protein powder. With soy and pea protein being the only complete vegan powders since they contain all nine essential amino acids. Plant-based protein powders have a broad appeal, and it is clear why, but living a healthy lifestyle includes consuming clean foods.

Pea protein powder comes from yellow peas. Naturally, pea protein powder has high levels of iron which may aid muscle growth, weight loss, and heart health. It also is said to blend very well and taste better than other protein powders. These are just a few reasons as to why pea protein powder is one of the best plant-based protein powders around.

Collagen protein powder is excellent for many reasons. The believed health benefits include improving skin health, joint pain relief, preventing bone loss, and enhancing muscle mass. 

Casein protein powder is a slow-digesting dairy protein that slowly releases amino acids. Casein is what makes up 80% of the protein in milk. Since casein is an animal protein, it contains all nine essential amino acids. Some believed benefits from casein include improved immune system, reducing high blood pressure, lower triglyceride levels, and it may support weight loss.

With there being so many types of protein to be made, choosing the right manufacturer to make it can be a tough decision. When working with us, we are able to manufacture them all at the best quality.

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 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. 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 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 separate protein atoms from the rest of the food.

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 essential. It helps your consumer base understand that the labeling information is correct 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 most significant 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 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 turnkey services for your protein powder as a supplement, we can deliver.
