The American Whey
7 Companies Making Protein Supplements From American MilkSeptember 23, 2020
It's extremely difficult to discover the origin of health supplements because the FDA does not require companies to list the sources of their raw materials. Look a little closer at the "Made in the USA" claim on your supplements and you'll see it mentions ingredients of international and domestic origin, which allows the manufacturer to make the claim as long as the product includes any US content or processing (this is called a 'qualified claim'). Let's take that further: according to the FDA, making food from one or more ingredients is considered 'processing', ergo, mixing ingredients together is considered processing.
On the topic of protein supplements, it's unlikely you've ever had whey from an American source- that's not to say that quality protein supplements can't come from abroad, it's just.. you haven't- until now.
