    I really like the fact that it is one of the more natural products available that you can walk into a store and buy. Most others are only available to order online. I love my local Vitamin Shoppe! The people who work there are so knowledgeable and helpful. I do wish it had more protein per scoop, but it is a concentrate, not an isolate...thank goodness! The only thing I would suggest for this protein powder is to make an unflavored version...please! I will definitely buy this again.

    i hate to even rate this, but i chose to give it an "average" given the fact that neither the web page nor the actually container list the amino acid profile per serving.I like the taste, but it would be great to know the make-up of this protein. It's really important to know that makeup - can anyone tell me? amino acid muscle builders/sustainers like leucine are so important, and they are making huge news lately. For instance, Jay Robb Protein list out - among other things - that it has 2518 mg of leucine per serving. It costs more than this protein, so i assume the True Athlete has less...but i have no idea.

      Comments about True Athlete Natural Whey Protein - Vanilla - 2.5 Pound Powder:

      I think I have tried every possible easily purchased vanilla protein powder that does not have artificial ingredients! This one mixes easily in a shaker cup and works great for me.

      As an Emergency RN I have to be able to work for hours at a time without a break to eat. I used to have (usually decaf) coffee with soy or cow milk constantly available to drink to prevent my stomach from growling. Over the last decade I was slowly & consistently gaining weight while eating mostly healthy. About a year ago I started eating more in line with South Beach Diet: eat all you want with only healthy carbs, protein, and fats; no sugars or unhealthy fat.

      I have lost 40 pounds in the last year going from 175 to 135 at 5'5"; I have maintained for 3 months now. I have about 4 scoops throughout the day mixed in with about 48 ounces of decaf coffee. I eat an apple before working out in the morning along with my coffee; otherwise I stick to protein during the day, a handful of nuts a day, and a heavy duty salad. In the evening I eat whatever I want! And usually a lot!

          Comments about True Athlete Natural Whey Protein - Vanilla - 2.5 Pound Powder:

          NOT a good choice for taste.
          With all the other great tasting, low sugar/carb protein powder products on the market, I cannot EVER expect to buy this one again.
          The taste is YUCK.
          Maybe the nutritional profile or the cost could be a positive edge to make this product a good choice but the taste is absolutely the WORST that I have experienced in protein supplements.
          I'm not sure how I am even going to use the remainder of the tub I just bought except for sneaking a scoop into a shake with other products that are more palatable.
          Again, this might be a great nutritional product but there are others that taste so, so much better that I could NEVER recommend this item.

          Comments about True Athlete Natural Whey Protein - Vanilla - 2.5 Pound Powder:

          I use this in homemade protein bars and post-workout shakes. My first experience with it has been great. I'm so used to highly processed powders with a super sweet taste, but the lightly sweet and natural smell and taste of the product was refreshing. I feel a ton "cleaner" with my diet, now. Negatives? None. Fair in price for the number of servings. It's a must-try!

              I add this protein powder to my spinach shakes for a quick breakfast! I have used others, but love the taste of this with the Stevia as a sweetner, it is not too sweet. I also love the addition of Lactose and Inulin for better assimilation and digestion.

                          I Really like this product NO Hormones,sweetend with Stevia, No artificial Flavors, colors, Taste Great. Not sickly sweet to me, get away from that suralose,thats what a chlorinated sweetner will do to your taste buds, also tricks the the mind into craving more sugar,etc. See Dr. Mercolas web site on Sweetners. In the End your body will truly thank you. will buy again.

                              I have found that there are far better choices of Whey Protein currently on the market than this one. Like others, I have found this one tasted too sweet. But more importantly... this one is far too high in cholesterol per serving, 65mg per scoop vs 20mg per scoop of other brands.

                              >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2012-01-02
                              I'm a cyclist as well, and I must agree with this review. The Sun Harvest whey protein has practically the same amount of protein per scoop (18mg) and less than 1/3 of the cholesterol. On heavy workout days I can take 1 1/2 scoops and not worry. Thnx

                              Was excited to try this new product - been looking for a quality whey protein that does not contain sugar, sucralose, or aspartame. This product fits the bill but has a rubbery, sickly sweet taste - even when blended in a fruit smoothie.

                                  I am pleasantly surprised by this product. I'm always a little hesitant to try new protein powder but True Athlete is really good. It's pretty thick with 8oz of water so I thin it out by adding a little more and it doesn't water down the flavor.

                                  M. O: Excellent base protein for smoothies or blended shakes. I blend 3 scoops(30g), 12oz water, with 1 frozen banana, and 1/2 scoop of carb powder for my post workout shake. I am lactose intolerant and this protein does not upset my stomach. Feb 13, 2014
                                  Gaye V: This supplement is a high quality source of protein; each serving contains a high amount of protein and there are no artificial sweeteners or sucralose. Feb 9, 2014

                                  Darrin W: First time trying - want to see how it tastes. I DO NOT like the protein powders that have all the chemicals and sweetners in them. It seems counterintuitive to my health plan. Hopefully this one will work out for me. Aug 29, 2013

                                  Tierney S: A cleaner whey protein choice. Doesn't taste perfectly like vanilla ice cream shake so if you're looking for that go to Carvel. It tastes pretty decent and def one of the better whey protein choices out there. Dec 21, 2012

                                  A Vitamin Shoppe customer asked: Says it contains soy? Is this GMO free because everything soy pretty much contains GMO's. Jun 23, 2013

                                  Jodi B: The product doesn't state on it anywhere, (that I can find) saying it is GMO free. Most places proudly place "NON GMO" right on their labels. I was told by a friend that it only states "Soy" because it's made in a factory that produces soy product. I wish I could be more helpful than that to you. Jun 25, 2013

                                  Joseph D: if it is labeled organic, it cannot be a GMO. US Law does not allow the label to be organic if using GMO's. Jul 3, 2013

                                  Jodi B: It doesn't contain any. The statement on the container is only because it's made in a factory that also produces soy products. Apr 13, 2014
