I just checked it out and WOW! Look at those reviews! Absolutely incredible. 33 reviews and 31 are 5 stars. Simply amazing.
I just learned they have a few flavored versions... have you had them? Are they naturally flavored? I am going to go with the plain right now since I add it to smoothies, but I may try a flavored version in the future.
I am on the search for a top quality whey protein. One that is grass-fed and that has no artificial sweeteners.
I found the following 2 brands: Source Naturals, True Whey
Has anyone tried either of these brands? If not, what brand do you buy?
I use the True Whey in my morning smoothies. I try to limit my smoothies to heavy lifting days only. I like that it is Whey Concentrate instead of Isolate and it has no added "stuff" except Stevia. The "contented cows" propaganda is why I bought it. Before that, I used EAS Protein almost exclusively, with occasional bouts of Optimal Nutrition Whey. So far, I like the way, True Whey feels in my system. I realize it may be psychosomatic, but I can afford it...so I will most likely keep using it.

I can't really tell you about the flavored ones as I've only bought the one I linked to. It goes a long way when you buy the 10lb bag! What I like to do is have a PWO shake with 2/3c of that whey, a banana (or two if it was a particularily heavy day), a little powdered kelp, a pinch of glutamine, and some cocoa nibs pulsed into a powder. Great flavor and really helps with recovery. If my fat is particularly low for the day, I'll also add in some coconut milk. YUM!
