      I order Whey from TrueProtein.com, they're in Southern CA. I like their stuff, it's inexpensive (under $5 per Lbs of Whey Concentrate 77-80%). Pretty good customer support. Their web form lets you add flavoring, additional supplements and choose packaging. And I've found online coupons rather easily.

        Here's something that a lot of people outside the supplement industry don't know- most whey is crap! It's overprocessed and from poor-quality milk. Think about it- unless specified, most whey is going to contain traces of growth hormones and pesticides. No thanks!

        That's why there are more companies coming out with higher-quality undenatured whey from quality dairy sources. The Primal lifestyle is, after all, supposed to be about whole, quality foods, so if you want whey, you might as well get the good stuff.

        True Whey is undenatured and un-isolated, so I give it a huge thumbs up! Plus, it tastes good:-) It's worth the extra $$ but you can find it discounted at iHerb and Vitacost.
        My second choice would be Natural Factors, which is a mix of undenatured concentrate and regular isolate. It also tastes good. Dr. Mercola has some undenatured whey he's hawking now.

        I like Mt Capra Caprotein, which is a concentrated goat's milk protein powder. It doesn't taste as good as whey, but I like how I feel on it and I do better with goat than cow dairy.

          If I could afford to pay $20+/lb for "better" whey I definitely would, but I'm on a very restricted college-budget and the extra money I come across is much better spent on quality, grassfed beef and tallow. This is especially considering I don't take more than 3 protein shakes in any given week, but I eat beef nearly on a daily basis.

              Anyone have experience with the Defense Nutrition whey? I have been using it off and on. The taste of the vanilla is great, but the chocolate isn't as good in my opinion. Is this better/worse than the other grass fed whey products on the market?

                I bought the Jay Robb unflavored whey isolate (I'm casein intolerant), and I don't think it's that good.

                  Thank you for your input to this thread. Your breakdown on whey protein is very interesting.

                    The Source Naturals True Whey seems very good, but one review on Amazon said it was too sweet. It contains stevia. I was looking for something unsweetened. Can anyone comment on how sweet the Source Naturals True Whey is?

                      I have to add honey to my smoothies to make it sweeter, especially with Blackberries. I don't find it too sweet. I will try some plain to see what the verdict is.

                        Loving and using Natural Factors Whey Factors - I've used it for about a year now and prefer it to others.

                        Haven't tried:
                        Source Naturals True Whey

                        Have tried:
                        Solgar Whey to Go (unflavored....others have fructose)
                        Jay Robb (liked....just couldn't find it at a reasonable price any longer)
                        mt capra goat milk whey - gross
                        source naturals whey to health - went in the bin with the mt. capra...they're both....well, not for me.

                        sticking with Natural Factors unless there is a good reason to move on.

                          Hey goeyi,

                          I have been using their plain whey for more than a year now and I'm very pleased with it. I've also tried the flavoured ones but didn't like the chemical aftertaste and the other ingredients. With the pure whey you can make your own delicious shakes. As far as I know, quality wise it is top notch

                            Thanks for the input guys! It seems as if there are several excellent whey protein powders out there... I still have a lot left of what I use now so it will be a while before I buy one...

                            So, keep the input coming! I have a while before I make my decision

                              Not to hijack the thread, but I saw the recommendation earlier for the NOW Foods brand of Whey, and having investigated further the ideology behind NOW's products appeals to me. It appears there are two health boutiques in my town that carry their products. Anyone else have experience with their proteins, omegas, and/or multis?

                                FYI - Isopure uses sucralose if that is a factor for you.
