        The Highest Quality Protein. Elite Whey provides 25 grams of 100% Whey Protein per serving. Whey
        is considered to be the best source of protein due to its high Biological Value (BV), Amino Acid Profile, and
        fast absorption to give your body what it needs to build muscle and recover.

        building of protein and speed recovery. Elite Whey also delivers 2.7 grams of L-Leucine, the BCAA that is
        directly involved in activating muscle protein synthesis, the process that builds your muscles and allows you to get stronger.

      Best tasting protien powder ever(my ophion) tried ON-EAS-twinlabs and others and nonthing compares to taste ON is my other fav. is a little sweet like other guy said but i normaly put spoon of sugar in it. Protien powder is protien powder you are not going to find one that is so supierior it blows the others away just dont buy the really really cheap stuff no name brands or low quality makers if it does'nt mix well thats a bad sign or if you you are using 2 scoops or more for 35grams of protien another bad indicator. Dymatize normally makes good qaulity and affordable supplements I if I try something new I like to try thier brand first before I decide to stick with product.

      Easily mixed, I just shake it up with some milk and it works well. The down side? It is very sweet, this is the third type of protein I have used and it is the sweetest. I recomend the 100% Whey Gold Natural Vanilla... Not too expensive and I got good results and tastes great.

      Comments about Dymatize Nutrition Elite Whey - 5 Pound Powder:

      ELITE WHEY PROTEIN is the best protien source that works for me. After months of using the Chocolate, I decided to try the vanilla flavor. I was disappointed with the taste. the only reason I Give THE VANILLA flavor 3 stars is the strong after taste. And the vanilla flavor is weak. I use water to make my shakes, that is exactly what the vanilla tastes like. AS for me a am sticking with the Chocolate. I love rich Chocolate flavor that taste like chocolate. I woud definitely recommend this product, but warn against the vanilla flavor

              Love the taste! I've been lifting weights, doing aerobics & yoga to tone up. I read that drinking a protein drink before would help with weight loss. Boy! I didn't expect these results : ) The taste is delicious and I'm baffled by the horrible reviews for this product. Granted, I didn't use this product before the "new improved taste" so I can't compare it to what it used to taste like. All I know is that I use this on the days that I lift weights, mixing with PB2 and dark chocolate almond milk which tastes like a Reese's peanut butter cup and I look forward to it. It's my reward for a job well done on weight lifting days.

                  I've been using the vanilla flavor for over 5 years. All of a sudden they came out with this New Improved Taste version, so I ordered 3 large bottles as usual. I was in for a bad surprise. The new taste is visibly chalky. Leaves a very bad taste next morning if you drink it before bedtime. The taste is definitely not an improvement over the old version. I wrote an email to the manufacturer, and it's been almost a month, no response. Guess customer service also has been a victim of cost cutting, much like their product.

                    Comments about Dymatize Nutrition Elite Whey - 5 Pound Powder:

                    I actually kind of felt bad for this protein when I looked it up. Most of the reviewers are talking about the taste. Sure, it would be nice if it was as tasty as a scoop of ice cream. Let's be real though, this is protein powder. To that aim, I think it's a pretty superior product. It's got a good mix of whey protein isolate, concentrate and peptides. It only has 2 grams of carbohydrates per scoop. There's not a lot of junk mixed in with it. If you want something that tastes better, go get something loaded with sugar that will never help you accomplish your goals. If you want a solid and effective protein powder for a reasonable price, look no further.

                    I have used this whey protein power for the past 2 years. However, since the "New Improved Taste" that was recently release is definitely a downgrade is both taste and quality. Compare the nutrition facts and you will see! I recommend Syntrax whey protein. Tastes so much better. (caribbean cooler or vanilla)

                        The new version of Dymatize tastes worst. It is extra foamy, tastes like a strong protein and has more calories than before. I was a loyal buyer of the prior version which had a great flavor. Time to start looking for a new brand...

                              I have been using dymatize for many years. I just got my restock of the vanilla elite whey with a new label. New improved taste. Not so much. They seem to think I want more sugar in my protein. Very very not impressed. Artificial sugar taste with a bad after taste. Once I can finish this I will be in the search for a new protein powder. Sorry dymatize I don't like you're new improved taste.

                                  Comments about Dymatize Nutrition Elite Whey - 5 Pound Powder:

                                  I am very strict on the ingredients that I allow in my foods. After researching many protein powders, Elite vanilla is the best. It tastes great and mixes well on top of its incredible ingredient list. There will always be negative opinions of any product, because everyone's palate is different, but having tried many of the top shelf proteins, nothing compares to Elite for the price, nutrition, and taste. I add it to oatmeal for breakfast, and my smoothies too.

                                              I've been using whey protein for about eight months now to supplement my running and boxing workouts. I've tried GNC Wheybolic, ON, and Dymatize. This product is my hands down favorite for the price and taste. Mix it half with milk and half with water, and it is practically enjoyable. It works just as well as the GNC protein which is up to $60 for 3 pounds. I highly recommend this product.

                                                  This is my very favorite for smoothies. Mixes instantly and tastes great. I usually get the Vanilla as it goes great with frozen fruit of any flavor / or leftover coffee or flavorings for a differernt taste.

                                                      I've been trying a lot of protein powders. I'm using the powders to help get protein while trying to loose weight. So I want protein with low amounts of added fat & carbs. This stuff is some of the worst tasting powder I've tried yet. It does mix up thicker than many of the low carb powders but the taste is not very good. Muscle Milk tastes great but it has loads of sugars, starches & fat. I've heard people say it tastes like a milkshake but that because of the high calorie count. Maybe the chocolate is better but the Vanilla is not good.

                                                      I have been using this protein for years and it tastes awesome. Try adding cold water, frozen berries (Straw/Blue/Ras etc...) and add a third of a frozen banana and blend in a blender (I use a Magic Bullet blender) and you will love it.

                                                          Best tasting protien powder ever(my ophion) tried ON-EAS-twinlabs and others and nonthing compares to taste ON is my other fav. is a little sweet like other guy said but i normaly put spoon of sugar in it. Protien powder is protien powder you are not going to find one that is so supierior it blows the others away just dont buy the really really cheap stuff no name brands or low quality makers if it does'nt mix well thats a bad sign or if you you are using 2 scoops or more for 35grams of protien another bad indicator. Dymatize normally makes good qaulity and affordable supplements I if I try something new I like to try thier brand first before I decide to stick with product.

                                                              Easily mixed, I just shake it up with some milk and it works well. The down side? It is very sweet, this is the third type of protein I have used and it is the sweetest. I recomend the 100% Whey Gold Natural Vanilla... Not too expensive and I got good results and tastes great.

                                                              Is this product good after the best by date on the back of the container?
