Maybe adding olive oil or a little cream will help?. Or something bland that wouldn't make it taste awful.Originally Posted by houseman

Big containers of isolate are very expensive. We've never been able to move large sized isolates due to their cost.

What type of protein is used in SUBSTANCE anyway? Is it CFM or anything like it?

Someone already mentioned VPX Zero Carb as a whey isolate in a large container (4.4lbs).
The following companies also put out WPI products in a 4lb or larger size:
Biochem Biopure (4lb)
Bioformx Proform CFM WPI (5lb)
IDS Multi-Pro (5lb)
NOW WPI (5lb)
Nature's Best Isopure (8.8lb)
Nature's Best Zero Carb Isopure (7.5lb)
Bioplex Pure WPI (5lb & 10lb)
Of all of those, only VPX and Nature's Best are really big-time players in the protein market. Of course, everyone has heard of IDS, NOW, and probably one or more of the others as well. Still, I think the fact that this is probably pretty close to a full listing shows that it is most likely not advantageous for most companies to try to put out a big tub of WPI. A lot of problems present themselves for store-bound product as well (as mentioned before.)
By the way, I was just about to say WOW when I saw the 8.8lb Isopure when I saw the Bioplex 10lb WPI! That's a lot of protein... and they want a pretty penny for it too, believe me.
Of all of those, the only ones I would consider are the VPX and the Bioformx.

Well Marc, if you decide to release a small batch to the ONLINE market rest assured that there is a demand.....You can make a very small run to test it out and distribute it to places like BB.com, Nutraplanet.com, and 1fast and see how it does!? I don't think many of you guys know about the loss that certain companies take by having a protein as a part of their product list. Many lose many because of the shipping issues with the pure weight of these products! I believe Marc can fill others in but be sure that if Marc doesn't release it it is becuause he has already given thought to it and it would be better in the interest of the public and for his buisness not to carry out such a product. I truly believe Marc considers the best of the public as he is a great guy and business man!

I see your understanding, and you definately will make more profit from 2lbs. I think you may make some profit in people who normally just use it every so often to people who use it alot because of the lesser (relative) price. I know i'd use it more.
But I'm know marketing major. You guys are doing good without my help
