Re: Best Protein Powder.........

Optimum Nutrition (ON) 100% Whey Protein Powder (chocolate) is delicious. Whey, as I understand, is also better than soy because it is more easily digested by the body (additionally, I've found soy to be a bit controversial: some believe it's a miraculous nutritional giant, others a fattening tool used in some government ploy). Anyway, this ON powder is really very tasty and relatively inexpensive (I buy mine online).

Hope that helps.

I like Vitamin Shoppe 100% Soy Protein. I find the WHEY has a gritty tooth feel that I don't like. The taste is fairly neutral but not what anyone could call GOOD...but it is easily masked with vanilla extract, cocoa powder or a banana.
Makes a nice shake with some thickener like xanthan gum (or guar.)

Amino acid structure of Soy and Whey are very similar, so buy for taste and price.

If you want to improve the taste of protein shakes try adding ice, a banana or other fruit or peanut butter.

i have tried a Whey Protein shake called "whey 2 go" in the chocolate flavor. i put a banana in with it and then stick it in the freezer to get icy cold. it's tastier that way.

The whey protein clear liquid is derived from making cheese. It is taste less but all makers add to it to make it a powder.
The flavored type are all OK.

There is alot of controverse about the harmones in soy but I don't know about soy protein.

My favorite for many years has been Designer Protein. I've tried many and this one tastes the best. It's made from whey protein and the strawberry is so good.

My absolute favorite is the Fat Flush Whey Protein, vanilla or chocolate, by UniKey Health Systems. It has no additives and is sweetened with steviaplus. It's also lactose-free.

Re: Best Protein Powder.........

What flavor do you all find to be the best? Personally, I always get strawberry and really like it. I would like to try a new flavor but im worried I'll despise the taste and lose money considering I always buy the big 5 lb. tubs.

Re: Best Protein Powder.........

I had been buying 100% Soy Protein (26 grams protein per ounce.) I need to buy again and I noticed that I was paying $8.97 for 16.9 ounces...I THOUGHT I was paying around $6.

So I'm searching out something cheaper--- I found something called EAS Easy Advantage Whey Protein (they had only chocolate). It's less protein (22 grams per ounce) but not MUCH less. Thing is they sell a HUGE 6 pound cylinder of this stuff for $23.99 or $4 a pound...THAT'S cheap.

Has anyone tried this stuff. I HATE to buy 6 pounds and find out that I don't like it after my first shake! Comments appreciated.
