    Default Good protein powders?

    I have read the consumer reports thingy that says most protein powders have a ton of crap in them that aren't good. I have also seen some reports where some brands don't have the listed ingredients in them.

    anyone know of a good brand of Whey powder? I need to suplement my diet.

    Go to trueprotein.com. You can order all sorts of different proteins and other supplements as well. I've been using them exclusively now for well over a year and I'm very happy with the quality and purity of the product.

    I have seen them widely recommended on this board and others.

    Depending on your budget I'd recommend any of the whey protein isolates or concentrates.

    I don't really follow you.

    I'm happy with what I've bought from them and everything seems to be as clean as they claim.

    I'm not bringing any samples to the laboratory to have it broken down in a test tube if that's what you are asking.

    Trueprotein is official. Biotest (although somewhat overpriced) is also good. Every other brand of protein i've ever taken has given me awful gas, bloating, and diarrhea

    I just bought a 5 lb. bag of EAS Whey Concentrate for $27.99 at one of the wholesale clubs.

    Cheap. Ingredients look the same as any other.

    Check this out. They use "Power To The People" as a slogan.

    They ask $43.95 on their website but the wholesale club sells it for $27.99. That's pretty cheap.

    Nitrean or Opticen by At Large Nutrition is phenomenal stuff by a solid company that you can respect. Nitrean's been voted best protein by Mens Health. They make their proteins a blend of whey, casein and egg protein... can't recommend these guys or this company highly enough.

    I just want to point out that the EAS and Nitrean products though they may be good quality have stuff in addition to the protein mixed in that you can't control.

    The protein that you get from Trueprotein.com is ONLY protein isolate from the original source to begin with and anything you add to it YOU decide to add.

    Aside from Truprotein.com's different proteins (almost every type of protein you could ever want) the other high quality protein I know of is from Iron Mind and their Just Protein.

    No additives, no sweeteners, no preservatives--Just Protein is high-quality, unadulterated, pleasant-tasting milk and egg protein with a little natural vanilla-almond flavor, nothing else.
    Trueprotein.com Whey Protein Isolate Microfiltrated. You can order it as ONLY the protein isolate without anything else added. You can also add natural flavorings or any number of other things to it if you CHOOSE to.

    EAS "100%" Whey Protein ingredients including sucralose and "Red #40":

    Whey Protein Concentrate (Whey Protein Concentrate, Soy Lecithin), Natural & Artificial Flavors, Whey Protein Isolate, Citric Acid, Acesulfame Potassium, Sucralose, and FD&C Red #40.
    Nitrean ingredients including corn syrup solids, etc.:

    Nitrean Protein Matrix ™ [blend of whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolates, and hydrolyzed whey protein (milk) contains: ~45% ß-lactoglobulin; ~20% a-lactalbumin; ~15% glycomacropeptides; ~10% immunoglobulins; ~6% bovine serum albumin; ~1% lactoperoxidase, protease-peptone, and lysozyme], isolated casein peptides, instantized egg albumen, natural and artificial flavors, cocoa, lecithin (soy), corn syrup solids, guar gum, acesulfame potassium, sucralose.
    I'm sure the EAS and Nitrean products aren't terrible and in a pinch I would have no problem picking them up myself if I happened to be at a store and saw them there. But honestly...if I have the choice between a product that I can choose specifically what goes into it and one that just throws in additives I know the direction I'll go.

    I am not militant about stuff but I try to keep things that I take into my body as clean as possible.

    Both Iron Mind and Trueprotein.com have your backs if you feel the same.

    That's ok, KJ. The steroids and antibiotics the dairy farmer injects in his milk cows more than compensates for the few trace ingredients in the EAS.

    And don't forget all those heavy metals in your drinking water. Yikes.

    No doubt!

    I do try my best to limit the bad stuff that goes into my body when I can.

    I do also use a water filter and at times will double filter my drinking water as it's very easy to do.

    Like I said...I'm not militant about this stuff and I could care less about the decisions people make. It just seems to me if you have the choice between products that have less crap and more crap that the best you can do is....better.
