 the protein bakery



First of all ,Would like to tell you a little more about who and what they do.

We've found the secret to happiness: Balance. And now we are bringing it across the pond!
So, we know the value of weights and measures. We chose the name Protein Bakery for a good (and healthy) reason. Muscle-building protein is a huge component in all our delicious cookies, brownies, and blondies. Protein makes you feel fuller faster and prevents spikes in blood sugar levels. It's one way to keep the heart beat steady and the body in balance. Every delectable, guilt-free bite is high in dietary fibre, low in gluten, and delivers up to 5 times more protein than the average baked treat.
Our trans-fat free, preservative free, and wheat flour-free recipes are also nutritionally balanced. We combine natural ingredients like heart-healthy rolled oats, light brown sugar, and the finest chocolate. We bake small batches from scratch every day with the same attention to perfection as we did on day 1 in November, 1999 in the USA. Our healthier flavors of creative culinary confections boast gourmet accents like swirls of rich peanut butter, tangy cranberries, toasted walnuts, sun-sweetened coconut, and so much more. We can't wait to see what we bake up for the UK and beyond.
Be happy—add balance to your life every day!

WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE USE WHEY PROTEIN TO SUPPLEMENT THEIR HEALTH?
  • Athletes use protein to help repair muscle tissue after a hard work-out.
  • Expected mothers' protein needs increase up to 33% during pregnancy.
  • Aging adults combine good nutrition with adequate amounts of high quality whey protein to help limit muscle and bone loss over time during aging.
  • Healing wounds and surgical incisions require increased amounts of protein and amino acids to initiate the growth of new skin cells during the healing process.
  • Hypertensive individuals use whey protein to help reduce their high levels of blood pressure which is the leading cause of heart disease and stroke.
  • People with high cholesterol turn to whey protein to help reduce their cholesterol levels.
  • Safe for children because it will not spike their blood sugar levels.
  • Diabetics who need to carefully manage food intake use whey protein because it helps control blood glucose levels in their body and for weight management.
  • Weight management is promoted by whey protein because it helps stabilize blood glucose levels by slowing the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream. This in turn reduces hunger by lowering insulin levels and making it easier for the body to burn fat. Whey protein also contains bio active components that help stimulate the release of two appetite-suppressing hormones. Adding whey protein to a mid-day snack or beverage provides healthy energy and may help control food intake at the next meal.
  • Glutathione is found in whey protein and acts as an antioxidant required for a healthy immune system.
DID YOU KNOW?
  • Our delicious protein packed products last four weeks if kept in a cool, dry place.
  • 15 seconds in the microwave brings out our fresh-from-the-oven taste.
  • All our products can be frozen up to three months.
  • TPB eaters say the brownies and blondies taste great straight out of the freezer!
  • Everything is made in small batches and handled with care and love.
  • No gluten in our ingredients! We are certified gluten free.
WHERE CAN I BUY YOUR PRODUCTS IN MY AREA?
If you or someone you know is interested in carrying our product, let us know! Drop us a line at info@proteinbakeryuk.co.uk. The best way to get our delicious cookies, brownies, and blondies is here online.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE RATE OF DELIVERY?
For weekday orders, we dispatch Monday to Friday with two options for delivery, Standard (3-4 days £4.50) and Swift (2-3 days £6.50).
WILL MY GIFT HAVE A RECEIPT?
Any order that is sent to a third party does not include an invoice. If you order a gift, your confirmation email is your receipt.
HOW DO I INCLUDE A GIFT MESSAGE?
During the checkout process, there will be a box to enter a gift message or special instructions for your order.
WHY WHEAT-FREE?
Many people today are looking for products that contain no wheat. If you fall under the category of being wheat intolerant then you should know that all of our baked goods are wheat-free. Everything is high in dietary fibre because we use rolled oats and grind them into flour.
WHEAT-FREE! DOES THAT MEAN GLUTEN-FREE?
Yes, we are certified Gluten-Free. We grind the finest rolled oats into flour to make our products wheat free and higher in dietary fibre. 
WHY NOT FAT-FREE?
Fat-free products usually taste like the box they come in. In addition to adding balance to our cookies and brownies, taste has always been a top priority. We have found that when something is fat-free, people eat double the amount. The added whey protein helps fill you up, so you don’t feel like eating more and more. Remember, balance is the key.
CAN I FREEZE YOUR COOKIES, BROWNIES, AND BLONDIES?
Yes. We suggest in addition to keeping them in their packaging, placing them in zip-lock bag when freezing. Frozen, they can last up to 3 months.
IS MY CREDIT CARD SAFE ONLINE?
Yes. We have a secure shopping cart that is Level 1 PCI-DSS compliant. The orders are encrypted via 128-bit SSL certificates. In 14 years of business we have never had a problem. We do not even see your card number. If we need to credit your account, we will need to get the card number from you over the phone.
DO YOU HAVE A CATALOG?
In an effort to be more eco-friendly, we do not have a mail catalog. Our website is our catalog.
EVERYTHING YOU COULD EVER NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE:
What is protein? Protein is a major component of enzymes, hormones, body tissues, the immune system, and virtually every cell and fluid in the body. Protein is made up of building blocks called amino acids. Amino acids can be synthesized in the body, but nine of them, called essential amino acids, must be ingested from food.
Whey protein is the name for a collection of globular proteins that can be isolated from whey, a by-product of cheese manufactured from cow's milk.
What should someone’s daily intake of protein be? The recommended daily allowance (RDA) of protein is 0.8 grams per a kilogram of body weight. For example, a 130 pound sedentary adult needs 47 grams of protein per a day. This requirement increases with activity, and an adult who exercises regularly needs about 70 grams of protein per day. Athletes need more protein in their diet, often as much as twice the recommended daily allowance.
WE LIKE TO KEEP THINGS REGULAR. HIGH IN DIETARY FIBRE:
Instead of using White Flour, we grind up rolled oats into powder. Cooking with oat powder lowers the carbohydrates and increases your dietary fibre intake.
ARE YOU A VEGETARIAN LOOKING TO EXPAND YOUR PALATE?
So many Protein Bakery eaters are vegetarians. Finding a protein source that is also a delicious sweet treat is not easy, and our vegetarian customer base is very complimentary and very vocal.
First, you should know that Whey Protein is a dairy protein and comes from cow's milk. It does NOT come from animal flesh. We are a great product for vegetarians, not for vegans. Secondly, Whey Protein contains sufficient levels of all essential amino acids. Did you know that plant proteins tend to be limited in one or more essential amino acids? In fact, whey protein isolate has approximately 50% more leucine (an amino acid that plays a key role in promoting muscle protein synthesis and muscle growth) than soy protein.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS GOOD FOR DIABETICS?
Please remember we are bakers, not doctors. However, many diabetics love The Protein Bakery. The added protein helps to prevent a spike a blood sugar. We are so lucky to hear fabulous feedback from people that really enjoy our product and are diabetic. We suggest the cookies over the brownies as they have a lower sugar content. As with anything, check with your doctor first if concerned.
                                                      
                                                                            < Our Thoughts >

Overall from what had sampled from The Protein Bakery they do live up to truly delicious goodness!
And yes I was a little worried at first as I have tried a lot of healthy treats only to find that they just don't cut it, but with these you will not be disappointed.
We at Precious Little Worlds are giving a highly recommend to The Protein Bakery’s for superb goodies for both taste and nutrition!
Oh and don't forget your little ones can enjoy its not just for adults , as I sure found out from my son who pinched some of mine ;0

Music Festivals



Oh yes its that time of year again when we all get excited to see the latest line up for the biggest music festivals.

For me it has to be rock festivals as a keen gower to one of the most famous rock events Leeds/Reading hitting this summertime music is sure on my list.

Remembering all those years back when this event was called V-Festival one of my first that I attended V98 , how far they have come now and changed over.



One of the main attraction has to be the buzz and atmosphere that music festivals bring.
Plus its not just about music nowadays there is a wide variety of activities to do, they have on site supermarket -  

The supermarket will sell convenience foods, snacks, pies/pasties, chilled drinks, fresh daily bread and milk, newspapers, beer/lager/cider, toiletries, and some medicines general grocery, fresh sliced meats, bacon, sausage, butter and cheeses, deli counter.

There are plenty of outlets on site selling food & drink.
Lots of other stalls selling clothes,jewelry even get your face painted.


                                    The view from the wheel we went on!


Oh and who can forget festival fashion some good some bad that's for sure,been to most of the Leeds Fests they have all been so amazing. The only concerns are each year prices go up & up bit of a downside. 


Hope you are all enjoying the summer.

Disclaimer

Precious Little Worlds have been sent out some scrummy food goodies from Arden & Amici for free in exchange for our honest opinion for the purpose of our blog, to report back to you the viewers our findings.

First of all who are Arden & Amici ?

Our company started life in 1991, founded by two guys who have a passion for food and travel. Having a strong desire to do something different and more importantly work for themselves, they left their respective jobs and started Arden Fine Foods, importing and distributing food from around Europe, with a focus on Italy.

Think of Tuscan food, and its often the rich soups, cheese, spicy sausage and fine wines that spring to mind. But Tuscany is also well known for its cakes and biscuits, with their distinctive sweet taste and heavenly aroma, these delights are becoming increasingly popular here in the UK. That's why we've developed this delicious Tuscan range of authentic Italian biscuits, baked to perfection and best served with friends! After all, life is for living and sharing with your loved ones.


 Arden & Amici

As you can see from the picture taken Arden & Amici have a huge variety of products to choose from.

Going to kick off with some delicious Italian biscuits-


Almond Cantuccini 180g


£2.49 available in waitrose

Traditional Tuscan Cantuccini loaded with almonds.
Eat the Italian way by dipping into sweet dessert wine or
your cappuccino

Ingredients

Wheat Flour, Sugar, Almonds (21%), Eggs, Butter*, Egg Yolk, Milk*, Honey, Raising Agent: Ammonium Hydrogen Carbonate, Salt, Natural Flavourings, *From Cows Milk

 Coffee , biscuits , Arden & Amici

What a fantastic a compliment when enjoying one of your favorite hot drinks, Mine has to be the mighty coffee. 

When you first look at them you do think of the word "dry" but that is not the case once you dunk one of your biscuits into your hot beverage.You soon get the taste from the  almonds coming through with a good crispy crunch.

Passes the dunk test with flying colours as you do find it still holds its shape even when dunked so no bites at the bottom of your cup. 





                                                      Soft Amaretti 150g

 Soft Amaretti biscuits


Italian Soft Amaretti biscuits made with almonds and apricot kernels. Delicious served with after dinner coffee. Why not try crumbling over your favourite dessert or using as a base for a scrummy trifle.

Ingredients
Sugar, Almonds (30%), Apricot Kernels (15%), Egg White, Preservative: Potassium Sorbate


They come individually wrapped so very good for keeping fresh,the only problem is if you're on a healthy eating regime as I am, that they do have a lot of calories in them.

With these I find they have a huge versatility to them as can be used in so many ways.




Savoury Foods-


 Party foods


What I truly love about these are when you have friends & family around you can tempt them with the delicious selection of nibbles. As I did with my own family treated them to a testing food evening.
