GREENVILLE, Ill. – Marcoot Jersey Creamery, a seventh-generation family-owned Jersey dairy farm in Greenville, Illinois, announced that they will be providing a new, innovative product for professional and collegiate athletes. Extreme Ice Pro, an NSF Certified for Sport® product, is made from fresh whey and mixed with crushed fruit. It contains 20 grams of protein in a 5-ounce container with no added sugar.
“We’re looking to revolutionize the way athletes consume protein in their clubhouses,” says President Amy Marcoot. “Extreme Ice started as an alternative for children to enjoy a tasty, nutritious treat. Now we’re taking it to the next level with Extreme Ice Pro, which holds an NSF Certified for Sport® certification. Athletes will love the taste and feel energized before and after competitions.”
Recently, the Marcoots worked directly with both the St. Louis Cardinals’ and Texas Rangers’ team dieticians on formulating the new flavors of Extreme Ice Pro. Each team’s players will be able to enjoy Marcoot’s frozen whey in their clubhouses. Executive Chef Larry Johnson of the St. Louis Cardinals is especially looking forward to working with this product.
In April 2019, Marcoot Jersey Creamery announced the nationwide launch of Extreme Ice – a version available through retail outlets such as Dierbergs and Marcoot Jersey Creamery's Country Store. Extreme Ice Pro is an NSF Certified for Sport® product that is available to any athlete or organization that would require the certification.
Marcoot’s whey, a byproduct of cheesemaking, comes from the creamery’s primarily grass-fed cattle. Specifically, Marcoot raises Jersey cows, which are known for producing excellent, rich, and high-quality milk.
