Jarrow Formulas Whey Protein French Vanilla -- 32 oz
Exceptional quality, smooth taste and easy to mix
I used to weight lift a lot a few years ago and so have had many, many protein powders. Jarrow is exceptional in its quality, unlike a lot of other manufactures and their wares. Many protein powders have additives (Acesulfame K, etc.) and unknown sweeteners-- some of which leave an unsavory aftertaste of sweet chalk. Some even claim to deliver 45+ grams of protein per serving- a claim which is ridiculous, as your body cannot properly digest that amount of protein in one sitting, or at least has a difficult time, I think.
Jarrow is different. First off, the ingredients are plain & simple all natural. The French Vanilla flavor, too, has a very subtle, but delciscio flavor to it. I drink this stuff after every work out 5+ times a week. If you want more protein, just drink more shakes evenly spaced throughout the day. But, in my opinion, 17- 18 g of protein is fine in one serving- it is easy for absorption, no flatulence and is a very manageable fitness routine-- and, best of all, highly affordable for nutrient/ serving breakdown.
The powder mixes very well. I, however, suggest a BlenderBottle-- one with a thin metal ball in it, to break up the powder. Give the powder a good shake for about 30 seconds, and you will have a wonderful, frothy shake ready to consume.
I like this powder so much that I've ordered three cases of it just now. Yes, it is very easy to go through it that quickly, too. Also, with the unflavored powder Jarrow puts out, it is even more versatile. If you want some extra protein in those cookies you're making, add in some Jarrow-- or add it to banana bread, oatmeal, etc. (I'd be careful first, though, in experimenting with small steps.)
Try the chocolate flavor, too, it's worth a shot.
Lastly, this is also a great dietary item to have in your tool kit: high protein, very low carb, light on the sugar, and modest caloric intake.

Just what I need
Taste great and the calories are perfect. Great for before or after workouts and I use most for midday snack.

I need an easy way to get extra protein and this is it! This powder mixes easily into anything and it tastes great, even in just water! If you don't want flavor added they have unflavored. I've put that in cookies and many other things just to up the nutritional value. But for a quick dose of protein I just take the vanilla (or the chocolate) and mix it in water with my Cuisinart Smart Stick. In seconds it's blended and ready to drink. No forcing it down because it tastes great! I highly recommend this product for anyone who needs some extra protein.

I like the fact that I can sweeten my smoothies myself.

Good flavor, satisfies hunger, not overly protein rich per scoop... you can have multiple scoops to get more yummy protein.
