This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Mike Rino and Jesse Raddon noticed something a while ago... No matter how far and wide they looked, they could not find a protein powder stick....Seemed a little strange to these friends and business acquaintances, as there were so many other health and nutrition-related products on the market, and this looked like a glaring omission... They saw an opportunity, and they got motivated.... And that's how Mike and Jesse partnered to create Only Protein just three years ago ....

Things really started heating up when they met certified nutritionist Michelle LeSueur. She taught them the ingredients they should include and also the ones to EX-clude. So, what you find in Only Protein is no gluten, artificial sweeteners, genetically modified ingredients or sucralose..... Sucralose can be found in practically every protein powder on the market and promotes fat storage — that's why they felt it a critical ingredient to eliminate. Only Protein also contains New Zealand whey, so there are no hormones and no antibiotics in it.

Only Protein is manufactured in Portland where the mixer is and then shipped back to Utah to be packaged and sent out to stores. Locally, you can find it in Harmon's and in Smith's. Around 500 GNC stores around the country have also picked it up.

The timing of this company's launch couldn't have been better ... So many people these days are putting a greater emphasis on holistic and clean eating, allowing their body to function better, and do more of the things it was built to do....It's a component of getting back to basics, and with Only Protein products helping to allow the body to run more smoothly, the company is expecting huge growth potential.. Health and nutrition stores are already beginning to partner with them to feature their products...In fact, right now, the number one comment from women who use the product is, it doesn't upset their stomach...

As a new company that already has six employees, Only Protein, headquartered in Draper, is contributing to Utah's low unemployment rate of 4.7 percent.
