Bob's Red Mill Whey Protein Powder -- 12 oz
I Highly Reccomend this product
This Whey Protein Concentrate is Cold Processed. It is also not hydrolyzed or homogenized. It comes from grass fed cows who are not fed the bovine growth hormone or treated with antibiotics. I researched it extensively before I purchased it for myself the first time by contacting the Bobs Red Mill help desk via email several times and asking MANY questions. I don't think that any of this information is on the label. Essentially, this is organic. As another review stated yes it does have Soy Lecithin where Sunflower Lecithin would be much more healthy, but that is the only drawback, other than the bland taste. But it is 1/3 of the cost of other organic Whey Concentrate, so I don't mind the bland taste nor the soy Lecithin. It dissolves easily in water or whatever liquid you choose to use.I use it after workouts.

Get rid of the Soy Lecithin please!
Soy derivatives do not belong to an otherwise good quality product from a good company.

Great whey protein
I tried four other kinds of whey protein. This is the only whey protein I feel safe giving my kids. They don't notice it when mixed in with their ice cream shakes. For myself, I use it primarily for shakes mixed with fruits, coconut vanilla milk and a Stevia in the mornings and after workouts. I have also used it with oatmeal. I don't recommend using it alone... it has a very bland taste. It's a Kosher product so I am assuming that it has no funky additives and that their cows are treated well... I hope :)

Very good product!
I'm a huge fan of Red Mill products. I hoped to use it as a replacement to bodybuilding whey protein supplements that have a bunch of other ingredients - glucosamine, creatine, sugars, etc. I give big points to Red Mill for being simple and pure, and it's important to note they are selling a base whey protein concentrate, not a protein shake mix. It dissolves relatively well into water but not as well as leading protein drinks. The taste is what's sticking in my craw - it has a very raw, difficult to overcome flavor. It's like swallowing thin wallpaper paste (consistency) that has a strong, flat taste of the milky liquid that forms in cottage cheese containers. If you're planning to mix recipes like other reviewers recommend (adding apple juice, or spinach(?), or bananas and other fruit), you'll be fine. But be aware this is not drinkable on it's own - it requires strong flavors blended with it. I'm using it in my steel cut oatmeal in mornings, and I'll cook with it, but it looks like I'll need to stick with flavored protein shakes for meal supplementation.
