This is excellent protein powder. It is pure whey isolate which means no fat, no carbs, no sugar, just great protein. I use the natural unflavored, I use it for smoothies and it is EXCELLENT in smoothies, it was very little flavor and so takes on the flavor of whatever else is in the smoothie. By itself, this is DISGUSTING, it has an awful chalky taste that I can only describe as watered down reconstituted powered milk with an added sour tinge. If you are after a protein that is just protein and don't care what it tastes like, this is the protein you should be using, no additives, no preservatives, no sugar, no artificial colors, sweeteners or garbage.

I picked this because, out of all the protein powders, this one had the most protein (~36.8 grams of protein per dollar for the 10 lb natural unflavored one at the time of this review) for my money. I got the 1.2 lb tub, in case I didn't end up liking it. but I'm glad I took the risk and bought it. The stuff mixes well within seconds in water with a spoon; and tastes pretty good, especially with cinnamon & (NOW) creatine monohydrate. I'm glad I tried it, and will most definitely buy again, most likely the 10 lb bag of the unflavored as it's more cost effective. :) *EDIT* One HUGE caveat. Unless there was a mistake, the scooper they send you with it does not give you a serving (28g) of the powder, but 1.5 servings (~42g) of it, even when flat. Which would explain why I was going through the stuff faster than I originally thought. So I had to dock them from a 10/10 to a 5/10 because, again, unless that was an honest mistake, it was pretty shady of NOW Sports. Ironically, a scooper with another whey protein I saved for over 10 years actually does indeed give the correct amount of whey protein powder, so I'm using that one instead. Hence why it's always a good idea to weigh out your serving sizes on a digital scale just to be sure. EDIT 2: To be fair, the 10 lb bag does have a proper sized scoop (though I still prefer to weigh to be sure, as it seems to under weigh the amount needed), so I've decided to bump them back up to a 10/10.

It's not overly sweet and mixes well in water or milk. I like the all natural ingredients and the scoop/protein ratio. I love Now products!

Best cleanest protein out there. Love this stuff buy it by the 10lb bag fulls. Priced generally around $110 for 10 lbs seems high but is right in line with ON and the other top selling proteins. It's 100% whey isolate too not filled with junk protein like concentrate. The taste is faint but at least it's not overwhelming or insanely sweet. Mixes very well and has a sterling ingredient list!

FYI 'unflavored' doesn't mean it has no flavor, it simply means it's not going to taste like chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, etc. It still smells and tastes like whey when you mix it up. This is GREAT protein though and here's an easy solution. 1) Pour 8oz water into glass or shaker bottle 2) Mix in a little less than one scoop (because scooper is oversized for some reason) 3) Mix in as little as 3 teaspoons of NOW Dextrose (only 30-40cal) and it will COMPLETELY remove the whey taste, will just taste like you're drinking sweet flavored water. Try it this way, it's great! (haven't tried it in juice yet but I imagine a similar effect with anything sweet)

The natural is the best protein out of the flavors because of the percent of protein. The percent of protein is 91% ( you determine this by dividing the grams of protein divided by the grams per serving). anything under 80% is considered bad protein and you should stay away from it. Anything over 80% is good to great the higher the % goes.
