Rising protein costs

  1. Rising protein costs


    Any idea if/when the rising costs of milk proteins (specifically whey) are going to slow down? Optimum is now $43 for a 5 pounder when a year ago it was 25 bucks. Has Optimum hinted that more price increases are on the way? Also, has anyone looked into egg white as a viable alternative? The only egg protein powder I have seen is the Optimum version, and it has always been relatively expensive.


  2. Rising Ethanol demand = higher corn prices=more expense to feed cows=increase in overhead for milk products=higher prices for whey.

    There is no solution in site, especially as people push more and more for corn-based products.

  3. The silver lining to this is that more people will have to start eating whole foods for their protein. The availability and price of proteins made most lifters too dependent on them.

    Chicken and beef both eat grain. Price will be rising there as well.

    Seafood should stay reasonable for some time to come, though.

    Chicken and beef have been rising for a while. Fish, especially salmon, has been getting way too pricey for me. Hell, even eggs have gotten about 30% higher.
