The Biosteel Difference
Is WPI safe for my kid to drink?
Yes, the WPI provides whey protein which is naturally found in milk and other dairy products.
Is Plant-Based Protein as effective as Whey Protein?
Our Plant-Based Protein contains a blend of 3 plant based sources which make a complete protein and an amino acid profile similar to our WPI.
Why are there carbs in ARF?
The carbs in ARF are there to replenish glycogen stores (energy stores in muscles) after an intense workout.
What’s the difference between ARF and WPI?
The main difference between the two products is that the Advanced Recovery Formula contains both protein AND carbohydrates. This is ideal for post-workout nutrition because both carbs and protein play an important role in muscle recovery. The added carbs also add more calories to this product which will help with building mass. In terms of when to use each: we recommend taking the ARF post-workout and the Whey Protein anytime during the day as part of a healthy source of protein in your diet. For example, starting your day with a scoop of whey in a smoothie would make a great tasting and healthy breakfast shake.
What sets your nutritional bars apart from your competition?
Our nutritional bars contain whole food ingredients as providing 12 grams of high quality whey protein isolate. This makes our bar perfect as a healthy snack option as well as a good source of protein at any time of the day.
What flavours do your nutritional bars come in?
We currently have 2 flavours: Original Mixed Berry and Blueberry.
What does BioSteel's Sports Mix ("Drink The Pink") taste like?
BioSteel's Sports Mix is mixed berry in flavour.
Why does my BioSteel change colour when I'm outside?
The BioSteel Sports Mix does change colour in the sun. The product is still perfectly safe and effective to drink when it changes colour, as this commonly occurs with outdoor athletes. This occurs because there are truly no artificial flavours or preservatives in the BioSteel Sports Mix. Our colour comes from natural red beet powder and much like a real beet, if left in the sun it will naturally change colour over time. With one drop of food colouring this would never happen, but then you would obviously not be drinking something that BioSteel stands for.
