Keeping It Clean + Natural

“I’ve designed my range of Organic Pea Protein & Pure Native WPI to be the purest form of protein supplement available on the market.

Everything I tried was full of junk and cheap fillers that caused bloating and weight gain, the total opposite of what I wanted, so I was compelled to create a protein supplement that really was good for me and provided the perfect nutritional support I needed”.

    Looks like a great, long yearned after product, however, I cannot seem to find the “nutritional breakdown” anywhere on the site – ie. protein, sugar, carbs, fat, grams – sorry, maybe I am being blonde or maybe I am the only one interested??? Look forward to trying it.

  3. CHRISTINE says:

    Thank you so much – I was just about to source a good protein supplement – and you have CHOCOLATER TOO!!!!!

    Hi Teresa,

    I absolutely love your website and delicious and healthy food ideas. I have tried many. Thank you! I have recently started including a protein powder into my diet-as part of a smoothie in the morning. I was suggested Isowhey. I wondered if you had heard of this product and what you thought? Your protein powder looks amazing so would be very happy to try that too. Would appreciate your advice.

    Thank you

    Hi Teresa,
    I love all your recipes and cook them frequently! I am a competitive runner and I have been looking for a healthy protein powder for a long time, and this looks perfect!!!
    I have protein powders in smoothies and favour the one’s that have little taste, so they don’t taint the fruity smoothies!! What powder would you recommend?
    Thank you so much, and thank you for all your recipes :)
    Alex :)

    • My fav are both the natural and vanilla flavours as they blend perfectly with other fresh fruits or frozen berries…Look out for my FREE SMOOTHIE EBOOK next week that has lots of recipes for sports recovery. :) xx

  6. Gordon says:

    Well done Teresa, looking forward to trying this. What are the chances of the next product being a sports recovery drink without the excessive sugar?

    • Hey Gordon – I have a great power smoothie FREE ebook coming out next week that gives some great sports nutrition recipes. Natural fresh mineral rich fruits + protein to help with recovery – hope you love them :) x

  7. Tess says:

    Hi Teresa, Im loving your 80/20 book and really keen to try this power protein powder!
    My son is allergic to milk though its mainly caused by the Casein protein.
    I was just wondering if this is soley whey protein and no casein present or if you can recommend a dairy free protein powder to help boost our intake


  8. Biunca says:

    Hi Teresa,
    Im currently using a very similar product from professional whey called NZ WPI. It causes me a lot of bloating. I think the only different ingredient is thaumatin (which is apparently a natural sweetner). Just wondering if you think your pea protein would be better for me to stop the bloat? I only have 1 maybe 2 a day.

    • Hi Biunca – My protein is VERY DIFFERENT from the one you have specified – no comparisson actually. Suggest you try my WPI or Organic Pea and see what you feel better on. You will love the clean taste and if you suffer for bloating or IBS issues then I would also advise you to shake your supplement with water or your choice of milk – not blend. hope this helps and let me know what you think :)

      • Biunca says:

        Thanks so much Teresa. I only have it with water but I’ll definately try the WPI and if Im still getting the bloat I’ll try the pea protein. Its fantastic that youve brought out this product. Ive struggled to find a protein supplement which isnt full of artificial nasties. Love your work and love your reciepes too! :-)

  9. Jane says:

    Sounds fantastic Teresa I was just looking for a protien powder to introduce into my lifestyle changes.
    How do I know which one to use. I am 52 weigh 49 kilos slightly underweight due to giving up sugar I lost 6 kilos.
    I eat a lot of protein and salads veggies almost partial paleo low GI Low carbs.
    But have noticed I need to build muscle tone. I power walk everyday and have a home gym to use. I will also incorporate some lap swimming soon. So reasonably active. Is there one that I need more than the other. Any suggestions ? Once again I love your website and what you are doing I work in a dress shop and I have been telling all my clients to check it out. Xxx

    • Hey Jane – Both the WPI and the organic pea are great and both have a high level of protein and essential amino acids you need to support lean muscle. That being said my WPI is has very high levels of LEUCINE. Leucine helps with the regulation of blood-sugar levels, the growth and repair of muscle tissue (such as bones, skin and muscles), growth hormone production, wound healing as well as energy regulation. It also prevents the breakdown of muscle proteins so Jane, this would be a perfect supplement for you. Hope this helps :) x

  10. Toni says:

    Hi Teresa,

    I love your website and all the great recipes. I have wanted to try incorporating protein powder into my diet for a while but am not sure how. It seems timely that you have just releases your range- any suggestions?

    • Hey Toni
      Next week I am release a series of FREE smoothie ebooks you can down load. They will give great info on how I like to use them and incorporate into my day + yummy healthy recipes. Tx :)

  11. Katherine says:

    Hi Teresa

    Love the website starting to look into clean eating and it can be a bit overwhelming at times!
    So many ingredients I have been eating in my diet that I realise now are so
    so bad for you! I was wondering if you use these protein powders in your baking recipies?
    Looking into buying the pure native WPI and I love putting protein powder into some of the things I cook so wondering if this is good for this particular protien powder?

    • Hey Katherine – happy you love the website.! I like to use my protein supplement in the following ways:
      1 Power Smoothies for a quick healthy breakfast or just shaken with water and ice for a quick low cal boost.
      2 my protein balls made with walnuts and cacao – great as a snack or light meal if you’re on the go
      3 Bircher Muesli where I grate apple and mix with WPI, yoghurt, LSA or seeds, nuts and strawberries
      These are all quick and easy ways to use my supplement. The natural WPI would be preferable if you are mixing into recipes.
      Hope this helps Tx

  12. Tracey says:

    Hi Teresa
    These look fantastic! Any chance you ship to the US? We just moved here and it’s quite hard to find natural products as lovely as yours.
    Thanks, Tracey

  13. Samantha says:

    Hi Teresa,

    This is fantastic so hard to find anything out there that is filler free!

  14. Andrea says:

    Hi Teresa,
    I want to thank you for creating a “natural” protein powder that contains no yeast. I had been using 180 nutrition powder for it’s wholesome and grass fed whey protein, but it contains yeast which I’m allergic to. I wasn’t sure what my next protein powder would be, as I’m very particular with ingredients and now you have created a protein powder with ingredients I support. Thank you for being a healthy chef!
    Best wishes,

    • Melissa says:

      Do you know the yeast is different?

      Reply i got from 180 nutrition:
      “We use inactive brewers yeast (not to be confused with bakers yeast) as it is specifically produced for it’s rich B vitamin complex, especially B12. This will have no effect on any yeast allergies (like Candida)”

  15. Polly says:

    Hi, just wondering which products are suitable if breastfeeding?

    Thanks :)

  16. Dominika says:

    Hi Teresa

    I was wondering whether the protein supplements are safe to use when pregnant or breast feeding. I will be just adding them to my smoothies in the morning. Thanks


    • Amie says:


      I was wondering whether your protein powder would be safe while breastfeeding too. My son is a bit older now and only feeds a few times a day but I don’t want to use any of the powders I used pre-baby


    • Hi Dominika – What you eat during pregnancy is critically important for the health of your developing baby. Nutrient reference values for protein intake during pregnancy and lactation are 1.1g per kilo of body weight / day.

      You can check out how much you need by using my protein calculator and check out my list of protein rich foods on the same page. Our protein powder contains no nasties or artificial ingredients and is completely pure and natural. The best way would be to introduce our protein range to your health professional or specialist so that they may review it and recommend which powder to help supplement your healthy diet.
      Kind regards
      Teresa Cutter :)

  17. Robyn says:

    Is the protein affected by heat- – wondering if I can add your protein powder to hot chocolate or hot soups for a protein boost?

    • Hey Robyn – You really don’t want to heat it too much – as you start to denature the protein. I love to mix it into smoothies or stir through a bircher muesli before eating. To boost soups add other sources of protein such as chickpeas, beans etc… :)

  18. Mez says:

    Hi there,
    I’m 33 & have bad skin. In the past protein powders make it a hell of a lot worse. Do you have one in particular that won’t cause me to break out?

    • Hey Mez – my range is all great…. check out the list of ingredients I DID NOT want in my protein supplement at the beginning of this post – as it’s probably one of these that is causing your breakouts….. Healthy chef protein is clean + pure. :)

  19. Kate says:

    Hi Teresa,

    You’ve already addressed my first question re breastfeeding via Dominika above thank you, however I’m also wondering if your WPI is a source of calcium? I’m struggling to get enough at present with a bf’ing baby and was looking to a healthier (less sugar) alternative to replace my current weapon of choice that is dairy milk and milo!

    Best regards, Kate

    • Hey Kate – thanks for your email and very good question. Each 28 g serve (2 TBSP) of WPI has 70 mg of Calcium. RDI for Calcium is 1000 mg per day. Great food sources are: Dairy foods (yoghurt, cheese), calcium fortified soy or rice milk), leafy green vegetables (juicing is great for this), fish (sardines and wild salmon with bones), tofu, tempeh, nuts and seeds. :) x

  20. kate says:

    Hi Teresa, just wanted to say i tried your protein powder today and its great! I got the WPI natural and the vanilla. this will now be my regular brand as its delicious and i love how it uses natural ingredients. also good job on the packaging, finally a powder that doesn’t scream testosterone or have pictures of bulging muscles on it! and also i was super impressed by the fast postage! ordered sunday night and received it tuesday morning! very surprised, but happy! thankyou teresa, youve created a great product and can’t wait to see what else you come up with!

    • That’s awesome Kate ! Really happy you love it. It’s taken a lot of years in the making and I’m very proud to stand by it. Lots of great things to follow …. appreciate your support. :) xxx

  21. Imogen says:

    Hi Teresa,
    Are the powders safe to use whilst pregnant?

    • Our protein powder contains no nasties or artificial ingredients and is completely pure and natural so it can be enjoyed by everyone:). It is always recommended to consult your health professional about your healthy diet. Nutrient reference values for protein intake during pregnancy and lactation are 1.1g per kilo of body weight / day which can also be found on my protein calculator on the site. This page also has a list of the best food sources of protein. :)

  22. Caitlin says:

    Hi Teresa,
    I absolutely love the fact that your protein powder is all natural and am looking at purchasing some to get more protein into my diet. I enjoy eating dairy but find that it seems to make me feel ill after eating it, but I need to start getting more calcium into my body, which powder would you recommend?
    Also I’ve never been into protein powder so I’m completely new to this!
    Thanks for designing a powder with REAL ingredients :)

    • Hey Caitlin – thanks for your email. The WPI vanilla would be a good place start for you. Tastes great and mixes well into smoothies etc. My protein supplements focus on giving you pure protein – each serve of 28 g (2 tbsp) will give you 26 grams of pure + natural protein. Our WPI has all the milk solids filtered out to make it a clean source – eliminating gastrointestinal issues often found with other supplements. On the other hand – if you’re super sensitive to dairy then our organic pea is perfect.

      Each 28 g serve of WPI (2 TBSP) has 70 mg of Calcium. RDI for Calcium is 1000 mg per day. Great non dairy food sources are: calcium fortified organic soy or rice milk, leafy green vegetables (green juicing and smoothies are great), fish (sardines and wild salmon with bones), tofu, tempeh, nuts and seeds.

      hope this helps and let me know how you go :) x

  23. Caitlin says:

    I ordered some last night and just wanted to know if it was okay to start off by taking 1 tablespoon with my morning smoothie? Is it better to slowly start incorporating protein powder in my diet?
    Sorry for the questions… I’m new to all this! X

    • Hi Caitlin – take 2 tablespoons and add it to your smoothie in the morning. It will give you a lovely 26 g of pure protein per serve and sustain you all morning. Let me know how you go and no probs with the questions. Download my free smoothie ebooks on the site as they’ll give you some delicious ideas on how to incorporate into your healthy diet T :)

      • Caitlin says:

        Hi Teresa,
        My yummy protein powder arrived yesterday and I made an awesome green smoothie with it- loads of kale + baby spinach + some mango + vanilla WPI + coconut water! It tasted great and creamier than my regular morning green smoothie, It suprised with with how filling it was not to mention it went down perdect, unlike dairy usually does! Thank you so much for making a truely delicious tasting natural protein powder :) can’t wait to see what else you can come up with!

        PS: Going to try your detox smoothie from your ebook tomorrow morning, does the protein powder take away the funny taste of the spirulina?
        Thanks :)

  24. Tess says:

    Hi Teresa,
    I was just wondering the main taste difference between the Vanilla Pea Protein Powder and the Vanilla WPI? I have tried the Vanilla WPI but want to go dairy free for a while.
    Many thanks :)

  25. Elaine says:

    Hi Teresa – just wondering if this product is suitable for people following a low FODMAP diet?

    • Hey Elaine – yes it is – that’s the whole reason why I developed my range. You will not have any gastrointestinal issues with either of my protein sups. The WPI is what I would recommend for you – Natural or Vanilla bean lactose content is negligible less than 0.1 g…if you are wanting to go completely dairy free than my organic pea is great…low carb – sugar free – easy digestible and no bloating..hope this helps. T:) x

  26. Kylie says:

    I am super excited!! My six pack of WPI and Pea Protein has just arrived. Now to decide which one to try first. Thanks Teresa :)

  27. Bek @ Crave says:

    Love this! I’d love to share it on my blog :)

  28. Erin says:

    Wow, I am so impressed! I have been curious about trying a protein supplement but am lactose intolerant. I was already keen to place an order when I saw the ingredients list at the top of the page but now that I have seen that you have personally replied to every question on this post, you definitely have my business! Great site Teresa!

  29. Lily says:

    Hi Teresa,
    I absolutely love your page! So many fabulous recipes!
    I was just wondering what the main differences are with your pea protein powder and the brown rice sunwarrior protein powder (what I currently use) I am looking to drop some weight (decrease fat/gain lean muscle) and I find after different foods I get extremely bloated especially whey protein (I know that would be the lactose content which isn’t present in yours). So what would the best protein powder be to decrease body fat?

    • Hey Lily – Both our Native whey and Pea Proteins are specifically designed for people with sensitive digestive systems – so they won’t bloat you. Our Whey is in isolate form and we also add digestive enzymes that reduce lactose to almost ZERO ! They are both great for weight loss and it depends on what your taste preference is. WPI has a higher amino acid profile…our pea protein has advantages over other vegan sources of protein such as rice because is it rich in BCAA’s (branched chain amino acids valine, leucine and isoleucine). Studies show that BCAA’s can reduce fatigue and improve exercise performance, reduce muscle breakdown and facilitate healing. It’s also lovely silky and smooth and fills you up quicker. To make a meal replacement – just blend fresh fruit and or leafy greens in a blender with a serve our of our Protein and you can mix with water, coconut water or your choice of milk such as almond. Blend and enjoy. Any other questions please feel free to contact me on [email protected] Happy to help :) x

  30. Gabrielle says:

    Hi Teresa,
    just wondering if your pure protein is suitable for children? My daughter has a degenerative physical condition called Ataxia-telangiectasia and there is no treatment so I’m trying to improve her diet as much as possible as she is continuously exhausted.
    We have started using superfoods for kids which we love!
    Her doctor is a little worried though as she is beginning to lose weight therefore has been referred to a dietician which has recommended sustagen which I don’t like.
    I was wondering if protein shakes would help to gain weight but I didn’t want to use commercial ones. Any advice would be great!
    Thank you…love your recipes!!! X

    Do you have any stockists in Canberra ?

  32. Carissa schneider says:

    Just wondering if the pea protein is safe when breastfeeding? And does it have any allergen foods in it (egg,nuts etc) I see there is no gluten, dairy or soy

  33. Julia G says:

    Hi Teresa just wondering if the protein powders are safe during pregnancy? Love all your recipes they changed my life

    • Hi Julia
      Thanks for your email.
      Yes, our protein range is suitable during pregnancy, breastfeeding and by kids.
      Our products are whole-food based, 100% natural and hypoallergenic – No gluten, egg, soy, lactose, casein, milk solids, sugar, gums, fillers, chemicals, preservatives and lactose (WPI has negligible amounts of lactose at 0.01g/serve). hope this helps….:) x

      Kind Regards T :)

  34. Kristy says:

    Hi Teresa,
    I’m struggling with eating red meat this pregnancy and I’m looking to add protein powder into my diet, but so many say they’re not suitable for use during pregnancy. Do you have a product of yours you’d recommend?

    • Hi Kristy, all our products are suitable for everyone…including in pregnancy. the main reason why other powders say no is that they are mostly filled with nasty ingredients that are no good for your health. You can also check out our PROTEIN CALCULATOR to calculate how much protein you will need during this time: you should also have a read at our FAQ section here:

      Make sure you are getting other food sources of iron if not eating red meat. Iron is required for red blood cell production, transporting oxygen and Iron is required for a healthy immune system.
      Good food sources are organic or grass fed beef, chicken, fish, salmon, eggs, spinach, almonds.

      Hope this helps and let me know how you go.

    I calculated my protein requirements which was 80g. I am not sure how much of the protein powder to actually use. How do I work it out? Thanks
