Best Whey Protein
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
Jay Rob Enterprises
Has anyone tried either of these brands? If not, what brand do you buy?
I use Jay Robb's. It's pretty good stuff from what I've read, and it tastes halfway decent which helps.
Thanks for your input! I think I will go with that... it's on Amazon whom I LOVE.
Any other thoughts?
i don't like jay robbs. it's pricey, too fluffy and not much taste for me. i like biochem vanilla for the taste/price
I use Optimum Nutrition Pro Complex Natural, which is a whey/casein/egg blend. It is supposedly all natural, using stevia as a sweetener. They also have a natural whey product. I think it tastes good.
I currently have optimum nutrition as well... the strawberry banana flavor and it just isn't cutting it.

I checked out biochem... it just has a bunch of other stuff in it.
I will pay a premium price for a high quality, grass-fed, pure whey protein.
Anyone else have a recommendation?
I have been using Well Wisdom's Vital Whey for more than a year now and LOVE it! It's a non-denatured grass-fed, all natural, non-gmo whey protein. The one I use, Vital Whey Natural, has one ingredient...whey protein concentrate. In my opinion you won't find a higher quality wp anywhere! You can check them out at Grass Fed Whey Protein and Natural Whey Protein Powder | Well Wisdom. The website contains a TON of great information too.
Is Isopure still around? I remember they had some pretty good meal replacements that were 1 or 0 grams of sugar a while back.
