        THE BIGGER PICTURE OF WHEY:
        Whey Protein Isolates are 90% pure protein by weight.
        They are the purest and most expensive form of whey protein that exists.
        That's why they are the first ingredients you read on the 100% Whey Gold Standard™ label.
        By using Whey Protein Isolates as our primary protein source, we're able to pack 24 grams of the purest, muscle-building protein per serving, and a lot less of the fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other stuff that you can do without.
        There's no question this is the standard by which other whey proteins are measured.

      Directions
      To encourage a positive nitrogen balance, consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound weight per day from a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over 4-6 small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

      Warning
      ALLERGY INFORMATION: THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS DAIRY INGREDIENTS (WHEY PROTEIN) AND VERY SMALL AMOUNTS OF SOY LECITHIN (TO IMPROVE MIXABILITY).

          I ordered the Rocky Road flavor it tasted great, theres a hint of almond flavor which is nice. I drink it after a workout and when I get hungry at night, to prevent me from eating a whole meal which works really well. It dissolves easily, no nasty lumps, even when spoon stirred

                This is a nice change from the usual vanilla and chocolate I'm used to. Definitely has that marshmellow flavor or rocky road. Easy to shake with water right after long runs or weight sessions. Also use it in my smoothies too.

                      I'm very picky about whey protein and have had a hard time finding those that taste good. I have to say that this is the best tasting flavor and brand so far, and I've tried many! It definitely has a chocolatey/marshmallowey flavor. I mix mine with fat free milk. Using my metal shaker with ice cubes makes it extremely cold and even better!
