Protein Powder

I am looking for a protein powder that's a little less expensive than Dave's and still qualifies as BP. Does anyone know if "Jay Robb non GMO" powder works?  It tastes amazing.  Seems almost too good to be true.  Here is the link  http://www.jayrobb.com/protein/egg-white-protein-chocolate.asp

  • i dunno if egg white protein would qualify as BP or not...almost certain that they wouldn't be pastured eggs.

    Look for the thread "protein powder, best bang for your buck"

  • I've used Dr Mercola's protein powder in the past which is very high quality and free shipping. I haven't done a cost comparison (it might even be pricier). High quality protein powder is definitely worth the cost.


    If you look at the servings and break it down to daily use I am sure they are under $3/day, which is darn good for a high quality nutritious meal so put it in that perspective you might be able to afford it.


    I use Dave's whey (most of the time) and add his collagen and find it very cost effective for the results. Wish I could be more help :/

    Is whey protein isolate generally considered the most bulletproof type of protein powder? Is there a particular brand that has been sanctioned as the most cost effective option if the Upgraded stuff isn't affordable?


     


    The only thread I found based on the search above was this one, and I didn't find much with regard to protein powder: http://forum.bulletproofexec.com/index.php?/topic/2334-best-bulletproof-bang-for-my-buck-and-why/


     


    EDIT: scratch that...maybe I was thinking whey protein isolate is just the best for lactose sensitivity, which I have...

    You mean my Amazon Prime won't apply!? Usually grounds for immediate dismissal.


     


    But alas, if I were to entertain the idea, would any of these 3 be worse or better than the others, or are they all decent choices:

  • Egg whites bind toxins to protect the yoke. That is why they can cause AutoImmune issues. The yoke has more nutrients as well. I would stay away from this.


     


    I am really surprised that people do not think Upgraded Whey is affordable, compared to other high end proteins it is competitive, grassfed milk and colostrum does not come cheap, for anybody!

    Well just as a comparison, the Upgraded Whey clocks in at nearly 3x the price of the above recommended True Nutrition Grassfed Whey...granted the Upgraded Whey has colostrum and is probably the best quality on the market, but the quality of the True Nutrition stuff and other similar products can't be THAT significantly inferior and for just a fraction of the price for those who may have financial limitations.


    In fact, a search on Amazon for 'grass fed whey' turns up an endless amount of results all claiming a non-denatured whole protein concentrate from superior sources of grassfed, non-gmo, non-hormone treated cows, and zero artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors. I'm actually blown away by just how many seemingly health conscious whey protein options exist on Amazon, and almost all quite a bit cheaper than the Upgraded stuff...the only real difference I can find is the addition of colostrum in the Upgraded whey. The more I look into them, I'm just really wondering if there's any reason whatsoever why any of these cheaper alternatives would NOT be a good choice? Aside from the fact that the purchase of Upgraded products directly helps support the work of this site, which I think is very important.

    Personally, I have the BP collagen-based protein, but I want to get some whey. My only problem is that I can't figure the difference between whey protein concentrate and isolate.


    Of course, it should be grass-fed, but  which one is more BP?

  • concentrate is more BP. Isolate has something damaged or wrong according to dr mercola..

    Great find with ProMix! Looks like a great product. Are there any known dangers of non-denatured, non-acid treated whey protein isolate? This is what I bought recently: http://www.nutrabio.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=NOS&Screen=PROD&Product_Code=WPI5. It's not grass-fed, but that shouldn't make much difference if it contains no fat, right?

    Did anyone have any opinions on the promix? http://www.amazon.com/ProMix-Grass-Fed-Whey-Protein/dp/B00GXLFUUA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428171121&sr=8-1&keywords=cold+processed+whey+protein


     


    Or the naked whey? http://www.amazon.com/NAKED-WHEY-Grass-Fed-Protein-Powder/dp/B00NBDMN8U/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1428171121&sr=8-2&keywords=cold+processed+whey+protein


     


    Both look like pretty good deals

  • I have used naked whey. It's a good product
  • On my site (link in the sig) I've got a grass-fed whey product that is made from milk rather than cheese. It's one of the only producers in the world that uses so little processing for whey protein. Bit pricey for sure, but it's definitely the best quality.

    Not all, but most. The majority of whey protein on the market is made from cheese. This results in a twice denaturing (damaging) of the biologically active properties inherent in raw milk.

    Nope, I'll let you figure out what is wrong with the statement "whey made from cheese"

  • Natural Stacks are doing a protein now, with colostrum, not sure how similar the quality will be to Dave's.. In any case, just use Vital Whey.

  • whey and milk came back as problems for me on a food sensitivity test. I was mixing hemp and collagen for a while but actually feel better and get more protein with my Sun warrior vegan mix (pea, hemp, and cranberry protein). Any other options?
  • Where did eggs show up on your test?


     


    You could always try egg albumin.


  • no sensitivity to eggs, but I usually eat eggs on the days I don't make a protein smoothie. I was also unsure if the egg whilte protein powder was too processed. Is there a certain form or anything specific to look out for when purchasing?
  • I'm not sure how BP the egg protein powders are, maybe someone else knows.


     


    I'd imagine just like any protein powder there is a process to it that degrades its "BPness".


     


    There is also the option of Beef Protein Isolate, but again, quality and processing may not be BP.


     


    Ultimately it comes down to your relationship with the food. If you are comfy with Sunwarrior, stick with it. Your connection and emotional state has a huge effect on how your body digests and assimilates it. If you think it is toxic, you'll inadvertently program your body to accept it as toxic. This is my belief, even with good whole food we tend to convince ourselves it is unhealthy.


  • What are the benefits of grass-fed protein?


     


    Is it just a gut sensitivity thing or are there further benefits?

    Byproduct of the process. My poor word choice.

    Even better is cheese being a byproduct of whey production. The issue here is that whey is already the best protein you can use for MPS and protein bioavailability, this has been proven before any of these needlessly expensive niche processes. What exactly are you paying for and what is the benifit, keeping in mind it is already the best, is there any literature to substantiate the effectiveness outweighing the cost increase, or does this method merely play on peoples ideas of sometimes unjustified fear based marketing terms like "byproduct" and "denatured" (for example, not limited to)

    Its a bit on the foamy side but tastes like whole milk, no real flavor but if you add some cacao powder its kinda like a lame chocolate milk


     


    Compared to other protein powders (including upgraded whey) this is my favorite so far.

    The better it mixes the more processed it is & emuslsifiers added so foamy is a good sign!

    question if you don't mind..

    I'm considering a"greens powder" for my mother and kids to help supplement them along the way..
    The one i'm considering has a plant based protein as well - i think i've read concerns w/ BCAA not being complete and the protein being somewhat worthless w/ out the right combination ??

    True, false, or somewhat true/false.. ??

    here is the one i was looking at.

    Not the end of the world, I would just get pure spirulina powder instead of the proprietary blend of unknown quantities, I usually consider plant based protein "incidental" as in, it's there and I count it if it's in my food but I don't seek it out. I doubt your mother and kids have optimal lean mass building goals haha.
