NOW foods is good, Jarrow is supposed to be decent as well. I think if you can find it on iherb.com you shouldn't have too much of a problem.

Yea but he also says the in the grand scheme of thing the little differences in quality isn't going to make a significant difference

the difference between whey concentrate and the others is insignificant, if it exists at all

in any case, any small (and hence usually irrelevant) differences in quality can be more than be made up by eating a bit more of the cheap stuff.

that is, just eat 5% more of the cheap stuff rather than paying twice as much per pound for something with a theoretically 5% better quality IMO

I wasn't bagging on you about a first post. There have been people that posted one time just to get a product out there. If that was not your intention. I apologize. Welcome aboard.

I like only "whey protein isolate"

whey protein concentrate usually means "we made this as cheaply as possible"

now foods has a non flavored whey protein isolate that is pretty inexpensive. it's probably bought from a good source. i like it.

my favorite is "jay robbs" protein isolate. it is plain or sweetened with stevia.

also, it's expensive BUT!....

...The cows are not treated with any nasty hormones or junk. The cows are grass fed & treated humanely which is important to me. It's the only mainstream whey protein to do so! goat protein is really good but expensive too.

Other good whey protein requires buying online.

avoid anything with phrases like "Lighting Bolt 9000 Muscle Mania" ....
