Great in so many waysMar 29, 2005
This is the protein for me, I'm sold. It's better than its own advertisements. Yes it really is absolutely tasteless (it does have a very pleasant but mild aroma - kinda reminds me of strawberries, but I only notice it when I first open up the jar), so you can add it to anything with a stronger taste than water and not know the difference. Yes it really is "instantized" unless you start trying to mix it at a thicker than recomended rate. I've taken it staight with nothin but water or milk, in hot and cold chocolate, in cereal, in oatmeal, in my O.J., I've toyed with putting it into my scrambled egss but what would be the point? Anyways, I've thrown together my own little protein drinks a half a dozen different ways already and I haven't scratched the surface. But wait there's more! Optimum makes no claims about this whey's other fantastic properties and I can't for the life of me figure out why.
I emailed them and they responded the same day to say that the stuff is virtually ("90%-98%") lactose free, which is a big relief since I have allot of lactose intollerance in the family.
The stuff is made in the USA. 17 grams of protein per serving, there's 60 servings in a jar. That's 1020 grams of the absolute best protein on earth. Amazon's price: $21 per jar. That's what? two cents per gram of protein/ 35 cents per serving?!? Somebody check my math, I'm not sure if that could possibly be right. Compare that to other protein blends- I need to do more checking but I'd bet that's a comparable $/gram of protein to even the cheapest of the multitudes of new and improved snake oil enriched super fantabulated suplemental mega bloat mixes. Then compare that to your average starbucks bill. Shoot, compare that to what you have to put into vending machines to get what rolls out.
If you aren't sold/bored yet then consider this: Whey proein as compared to all other protein types (egg, standard milk, soy, etc) is the best across the board and should (and usually does) have a cost to match. It is the easiest on your stomach, fastest into your system, and best for muscle tissue gains/ weight maintenance (it's what doctors have used to get HIV and wasted chemo/radiation patients to hold the line and even re-grow). It has immune system enhanceing properties that make it almost medicinal. It has anti cancer properties beyond its immune enchanceing ones, but especially for those who are about to undergo radiation/chemothereapy (I can't explain the mechanisms but it selectively puts the cancer cells frontmost when the treatments are taking place so that they are the first to die and easiest to kill) Carefully and expensively processed Whey proteins (whey protein isolates) should cost even more than the standard concentrates. But Any whey doesn't cost hardly nothin', what gives?
Now... search for a protein supplement, of any kind, that doesn't come with that wonderful and ever palatable "NEW CHOCOLATE BANANA PEPPER FLAVOR!" Or have any fat. Or any carbohydrates (well actually it does have 1 gram per serving). No sugars, no sugar alcohols, no indigestible sugar substitutes, no taste (no, wait, that's a good thing!), and one that can be measured into any recipe of any kind for an endless variety of ways to be used. 60 servings-17 grams per serving-21 dollars.
The stuff's good enough to inspire me to peck away for an hour now to sing it's unsung praises. Now I think I'll go have a high protein bowl o' whey-augmented dreario's so my poor finger muscles have something to regrow with.

FANTASTIC!!!Jun 09, 2004
I recently had weight loss surgery, and had to take protein shakes for a few weeks. I tried all different types of protein products and they were AWFUL, until I came across ANY WHEY. This product is a wonderful!! I can mix it with any liquid and it is virtually tasteless!! I have also mixed it with foods also to add the extra protein that I need in my diet. I still make shakes for breakfast and one for a snack in the evening using this product. I give it 5 stars!!

Not "tasteless"Dec 02, 2007
I bought this to use in smoothies for a balanced meal. I had tried another brand and didn't like the strong vanilla taste, so I bought this because it was described as being virtually tasteless. However, after using it for a couple of days, it too has a very noticeable vanilla taste, which isn't terrible but not desired. It looks like full-fat powdered milk and produced a thickened creamy consistency to my smoothies. I guess I should have realized that there would be some taste to it, but I am not familiar with protein powders. Maybe this is as "virtually tasteless" as it gets.

This is amazing!Mar 17, 2012
By V. Silva
I rarely write reviews for products but this one certainly deserves it. I got tired of all of the sweetened protein drinks and decided to go for unflavored Whey. First I bought Jarrow's Formula but it tasted horrible and you couldn't do anything else other than blend it with milk and fruit (it tasted disgusting with water or in food).
The first thing that I noticed when I opened up my package was that the Powder is very fine and a lot less dense then any other supplement I have seen (most supplements look like flour and have some clusters on them, this one is more like sugar and has no clusters). Then it smelled a lot better than Jarrow's protein (Jarrow's smells milky while this one is a little sweet).
I drink this every day that I work out, some times multiple times a day. I've only made fruit smoothies with it so far (never mixed it with water so I can't comment on that), but it tastes fantastic. It does not leave the spoiled milk taste of Jarrow's, it just makes my drink taste a little more sweet than the usual. Whenever I'm in a hurry I just beat it with one banana and a glass of milk, the taste is fantastic and doesn't even feel like I'm drinking a rich protein drink.
Whenever I shop for a product on Amazon I look straight at the negative reviews first and then move on to the positive. One trend that I noticed with this product is that most of the people giving 2 or 3 star ratings are not used to taking protein supplements in the first place. I can assure you that this is the best one I've ever taken, it certainly beats any of the flavored drinks or Jarrow's whey protein (my friend drinks the NOW unflavored protein and it tastes almost exactly like Jarrow's).
This particular product is marketed for cooking purposes. I am not a nutritionist and I honestly have a very basic knowledge of the subject, so I do not know if this is missing ingredients that help with muscle development (Jarrow's and NOW are marketed as workout drinks) but they all have roughly the same % of whey protein (Jarrow's is 83% whey protein if you divide the grams per serving for the protein in each serving, and Any's is also 83%).
The only negative thing that I would like to point out is that this is a little more expensive than both NOW and Jarrow's, but overall I think its worth the extra price.
