If you know me then you know that I have done my research and have tried many different protein powders from whey to pea to egg white to hemp and so on. I am extremely excited to talk about a protein powder that is no-nonsense! No artificial ingredients, minimal ingredients, GMO, gluten, and soy-free, and derived from grass-fed cattle.
When I first learned about SFH I was in the middle of my 4th Whole30 and saw Whole9 endorse SFH fish oil in a blog post that you can read about HERE When I clicked on the SFH link I learned that they also make protein powder. For me, a protein powder is important because I am running around all day long in my car and in between classes and need quick protein to stay energetic and strong. Yes, a “powder” is always a last resort to whole foods but is an excellent resource for those who are on the run, who want to control their protein intake and who want to control caloric intake. So, I was thrilled when I connected with the peeps at SFH and received their product to try. Let me tell you, I was really impressed.
SO WHY SFH PROTEIN IS FOR ME?
“SFH protein is produced as a highly bioavailable (easy to absorb and digest) whey concentrate. Our whey proteins are derived from grass-fed cow herds: not treated with hormones or antibiotics. Calved once a year, fielding whey with high content CLA, low estrogens, and low omega-6 fats. SFH proteins do not contain soy lecithin, GMO products, cardiac stimulants, and are gluten-free and not chemically modified. While pasteurized, SFH proteins are not denatured.
We avoid insulin spikes: Our products are free from high glycemic carbohydrates that spike the release of insulin and shut down fat metabolism and induce inflammation.”
I really like the concept behind SFH protein. They have different formulas to target different needs such as: pure whey, recovery, endurance, daily balance, and rejuvenate. You can see their formula chart HERE!
Personally, I use the Pure Whey, FUEL and Recovery. The Whey is especially awesome for cooking….like this amazing recipe for Protein Breakfast Cake by Lexi of Lexi’s kitchen! You can also try these other amazing recipes from the SFH blog HERE!

WHAT IS IN OUR WHEY?
Our Pure Whey Formula is 82-84% pure whey protein and comes in four flavors: natural, chocolate, peach mango and vanilla. All four flavors are 100% natural and do not contain any added artificial flavoring. The Natural formulations have the highest whey protein percentages. Vanilla, chocolate and peach mango whey have slightly less protein and an extremely small amount of sugar (compare our product to others). All of our formulas mix well in water and in milk products and are much easier and faster to absorb than whey protein isolates. They are also great in smoothies.
WHERE DO WE GET OUR WHEY FROM?
All of our whey products are formulated with non-denatured whey protein derived from free-range, grass-fed cow herds. They are all-natural and contain no additives or preservatives – just wholesome goodness.
WHY DO YOU AVOID SUGAR IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
Sugar induces the release of insulin. High periods of insulin lead to health problems such as diabetes, obesity and vascular abnormalities.
