Quality Proteins w/No Artificial Flavors or Sweeteners

  1. I hope my man still has the 5 lb IronTek Naturals for only $25. I want to pick up some of the chocolate and more of the strawberry, they are soooo good!


  2. For $25, you better buy em all. That stuff is great, and $25 is cheap, it's usually ~$40.

    I am tempted to try protein factory whey, $20 for 5lbs. Anyone used it?

    no man never used the p factory stuff, yeah I need to pick them all up asap...

  4. First off, I would like to thank you all for the time you took to post your recommendations and opinions here. They have been most helpful to my own research.

    I am currently looking for an all-natural protein blend rather than the whey protein isolates / concentrates to supplement at various times of the day, not just when I wake up and post-workout. So far I've found three good options:

    1. Optimum Nutrition Natural Pro Complex
    2. Iron-Tek Essential Natural Protein
    3. Lindberg Protein Blend

    The first one is available pretty much everywhere and it has both whey protein isolates and egg albumin protein (fast and medium-speed assimilation), but is quite expensive.

    The second option, which several of you have already mentioned, only has milk-sourced protein (whey and casein). It is about $15 cheaper than the first option, but a bit harder to find.

    The third option is the only one I've found thus far with whey, casein, and egg protein. It compares in pricing to the second option, but is even harder to find Online.

    If any of you has a better recommendation, please step up. For now, I think I will settle for the second option, since I cannot find the third one on any of the sites I can buy directly from (I live abroad and nutritionexpress.com only takes USA-issued credit cards, bummer).

  5. Strong bump, but NOW makes some stuff in a 10lb bag that uses stevia. Its not bad and competitively priced.

  8. The price of whey protein has just gotten so out of hand I really don't know if it's worth the cost anymore. After my last post I switched to vitacost.com natural whey protein which uses stevia. The taste is ok but it's all natural. Mixes well. I used that for 2-3 years. The price is now up to $45 for a 5lb tub right now. You can get 45 servings at 20grams of pure whey isolate at swansonvitamins for $24.99. I'd say very competitive. You can look for a coupon online and free shipping. I've never tried this personally but I'am always pleased with swansons products. It doesn't mention any sweetners at all actually, just vanilla flavor. All natural. Has good reviews.

    I made the BIG mistake of getting a 6lb bag of cytosports whey protein from costco a few months back because the price was pretty good. It uses artificial flavoring and sucralose. The aftertaste is probably the worst I have EVER tasted in a protein in my life! Absolutely disgusting. It just lingers with you all day and about the only good thing I can tell you about this is it controls you appetite greatly and probably helped me lose a little weight. That's about it. I will never buy that crap again and don't recommend it to anyone. I basically just switched over to eating a lot of eggs. Up to 10 a day. It is a hassle however. I truly miss just being able to down a quick shake first thing in the morning for some quick energy. For this reason alone I'll probably have to succumb to buying more whey. I'll probably just be doing a scoop in the morning though to preserve it and eat normally the rest of the day. It's hard to argue with the convenience, and nutritional benefits of whey protein. I take it for other reasons then just extra protein and "muscle building".

    That is definitely a very strong point in favor of whey protein, its fast assimilation and overall nutritional value. Problem is that it does not satisfy for long, unlike casein or even egg albumin. This is why I was looking for a compound solution to the problem other than eating oatmeal, lol.

    @MattPorter

    I just went to TrueNutrition's site and gave a Custom Mix a whirl. It's amazing what you can do with their "tools". Notwithstanding that, cost is an issue. For the resulting price, I might as well purchase the ON Pro Complex. I was looking for something in the 50-buck range for 5 lbs of the thing.

    Everything considered, I think I will have to go for Iron-Tek Essential Natural Protein at Vitacost.com. Thank you all for your valuable input!
