    My vote is for Jay Robb as well. Sun Warrior Warrior Blend is good also, but it's not whey. It's a vegetable blend with coconut oil and sweetened with stevia.

    For sheer taste and smoothness (even though it's loaded with junk)-- Isopure Zero. Frackin' delicious.

    I use Jay Robb, I drink it immediately after a workout with a coconut water/water mix. I probably wouldn't if I could eat a meal within the necessary window. But this stuff tastes awesome and there's nothing offensive in the ingredients. Worth the price IMO

    Never thought to try JR with coconut water.

    *wonders if she could make a chocolate covered strawberry flavor using JR Strawberry & Zico chocolate*

    I agree with this, I don't like the additives in the powders.

    Not all whey proteins are created equal. There is a huge range in quality between different brands. First you have to look at how the cows are raised and what they eat because if you are going to be ingesting 20-60 grams of whey a day you want to make sure you aren’t getting something full of hormones, pesticides or GMO from the cows milk.

    Second, you need to look at how the whey protein is processed. You don’t want acid processing or high heat processing because it destroys the amino acid profile of the whey and is much harder for your body to assimilate and build muscle with. A lot of companies have to add fillers and sweeteners to make it taste better after all of the processing, but a high quality whey tastes great just by itself – nothing added – just one ingredient, the whey protein.
    Here is some good info on how to choose the best whey protein powder.

    The best whey protein that I've found (and i've tried a lot of them) is raw organic whey.

    The many risks that come along with whey define a poor risk/benefit ratio. Stick with the plan and eat meat/fish/eggs. Remember that the reason to go paleo/primal is so you don't need to sweat the small stuff - ever. You're thinking way too hard and that usually leads to failure. It's a simple plan. Stick with it.

    There are just as many if not more risks associated with eating meat/fish/eggs these days. You still have to make sure the meat is grass-fed organic and that the fish is wild Alaskan without mercury as well as organic free-range eggs. These are no different than whey and require just as much attention to detail. People are too disconnected from their food. Buy local and actually go to the farm where your meat is raised to see for yourself the conditions.

    Jay Robb whey isolate is the best tasting one I've had. Awesome in coconut milk smoothie with some frozen strawberries. BTW that's pretty much the only sweet treat I allow myself these days.
    I've tried others like the Gold Standard and Natural Factors, and they taste chemical-ly to me.

    Yes, you do have to be careful and know your farms. That's why I make a list of the sources available to all my paleo patients. Once you've found them, you don't need to worry about the outcome - like you will with whey.
