has nothing to do with milk
Are you having a hard time finding milk in the local grocery store? Is there some big milk shortage all of cnbc, cnn or fox news that i have'nt heard about??
First off, whey comes from cheese, its a by product of cheese. Basically worthless, used to throw it away until someone figured out they could make some $$$$ repackaging it. The problem is, International demand has risen dramatically, and no, not for bodybuilders, for "livestock feed".
Boycott whey protein my brothers, go back to EGG, the real protein. Your wallet and you physique will thank you for it. You'll be harder and more dense than ever and you'll have some change to take your girl out for a bite to eat.

Egg protein is around $30 for 2 lbs. I can find 5 lbs of whey for close to that price.

a drought in new zealand is affecting the production of corn crops used as cattle feed, less food for the the cows=less milk production=less whey byproduct=increase in cost for manufactures and is why we have to pay more.

egg white protein = $10.79
WPI cold-filtered = $9.29
WPI micro-filtered = $9.59
WPI ion = $9.89
WPC = $5.89
So egg is almost double WPC, but barely more expensive than WPI. But yet egg products cost at least 2-3x more than whey mixes containing mostly WPI. What am I missing here?

Q: What is whey protein?
A: Whey protein is a high quality protein powder from cow's milk. Milk has two proteins: Casein (approximately 80%) and Whey Protein (approximately 20%). Whey protein is more soluble than casein and also has a higher quality rating. It is often referred to as the "Gold Standard" of protein as it is the most nutritious protein available.
Q: How is whey protein made?
A: Whey protein is a co-product of the cheese making process. Listed below is a brief description of the steps involved in making BiPro pure whey protein isolate.
Fresh milk is tested, approved by Quality Assurance experts and pasteurized.
The casein, or "curd", and a portion of the milk-fat are separated out to make cheese.
The remaining liquid whey goes through a series of fine, specialty filters to separate the whey protein from the lactose and other ingredients in the liquid whey.
Concentrated liquid whey enters an ion exchange tower to further concentrate and purify the whey protein. Ion exchange is a gentle process and does not denature, or "break down", the whey protein.
Next, the product enters a drying tower to remove water.
The final step is to package the pure whey protein isolate powder into various size containers for use.

Maybe its just me, but I haven't paid anymore for protein then I have in the past, but then again I typically buy whats on sale. I use plenty to not worry about what brand name is on it. One place I normally order has had EAS for 23.99 for the past couple months. I have bought Ultimate for 19.99. Sure they may be some that are a bit better than others, but you will prob not notice a difference in what you get out of it. I seek out the sales and buy when things are cheap.

BJ's consistently has EAS and Designer Whey for 26.99 as well. I'm sure Sam's club has protein as well.
