Whey2Go is a protein ice cream that is just as tasty as regular ice cream, but a whole lot healthier.  That’s because we have replaced the bad sugar with a natural sweetener that keeps blood sugar levels low and combined this with whey protein isolate to increase the regular protein found in ice cream. The ice cream is made from the finest ingredients which are 100% natural.

We have three flavours available with more in the pipeline, but we’re always open to suggestions, so if there’s a flavour you’d really like to see, let us know and we’ll see what we can do! Click here to send in your suggestion.

Proteins are essential to all of us. Each and every cell in the human body contains protein, so maintaining the protein in your body is important!

When you eat foods that contain protein, your digestive system goes to work, breaking down the food into amino acids. These amino acids are then reused to help make the proteins that your body needs to maintain muscles, bones, blood and organs.

All whey protein powders start off as cow’s milk. It is a rich source of the body’s essential amino acids, efficiently digested and absorbed and is one of the richest sources of protein. The quality and how it tastes all depends on the cow’s diet, grazing and well being.

After extensive research and a lot of trials, testing and tasting, we selected our Whey Protein Powder from specialist experts in the UK. This, we believe is the best Whey Protein Isolate powder around.

Whether you’re a professional athlete or just hitting the gym to get that perfect summer beach body, protein should be a regular part of your diet.  Whey protein is responsible for building muscle and lean bodymass, improving body composition, and enhancing your athletic performance. A lack of protein can lead to lengthy recovery time, weak muscles and a poor immune system. Research shows whey protein can also help fight stress!

On top of all this, a higher protein intake can help you lose weight! How? Well, it helps cut cravings, reducing calorie intake and therefore bad snack decisions! Protein slows the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream, which helps with maintaining a stable blood sugar level, essential to weight management!

There are two main varieties of whey protein powders, whey protein concentrate and whey protein isloate. We chose whey protein isolate for Whey2Go Protein Ice Cream simply because it contains less fats and lactose sugars.

Whey protein isolate is also the highest quality source of protein and is considered by many scientists as one of the Gold Standards of proteins for our bodies. Whey protein isolate is often preferred by the sports industry as its faster absorbing than concentrate after exercise.

It certainly is!

We use Xylitol which is a naturally occurring sweetener, extracted from any woody fibrous plant material. Xylitol is just as sweet as regular sugar (sucrose), but with about 33 per cent fewer calories! This makes the product suitable for diabetics, as it helps stabilize blood sugar levels.

Xylitol is also great for your teeth often used in toothpastes!

We’ve worked hard to make the product sugar free and tasty at the same time, but we think we’ve cracked it!

Yes. The Muslim Consumer Group has certified it to be halal. It does have “sugar alcohol” but this does not mean alcohol as we often think of it (that is ethanol). Xylitol is called a sugar alcohol because of its chemical structure and does not have any intoxicating effects or act like the alcohol in drinks.

Gelato is made with a custard base which has fewer or no eggs, a higher proportion of milk and a lower proportion of cream. It is then churned for a longer time to add air particles into it. This creates a denser consistency than ice cream.

Regular ice cream is made from a mixture of rich double cream, milk, sugar and eggs. This is then frozen while being churned. In commercial ice­cream making, stabilizers such as plant gums are usually added and the mixture is pasteurized and homogenized.

Protein ice cream is the leanest of the three. The natural milk in the ice cream is spun to produce whey isolate, which is a pure form of protein. This is then re­added to the ice cream to boost the carbohydrate uptake and increase the amount of protein. And since Whey2go has perfected the process, there is no sugar added.

Well let’s just say they’re not that good, but don’t take our word for it, check out how we compare to the rest:
