Whey Protein Isolate Unflavored
I've gone through several of these and I love it! It's a easy way to add whey protein to your shakes/food w/o the added weight and taste of added powder. I love that's it's pretty much a flavorless isolate. That makes it universal so I can use it in a variety of things w/o changing up the flavor of what I'm making.

This Stuff is Great!
This is the purest and most concentrated protein isolate I have yet found. It is a great value and has the least calories of any blend I have tried. The main reason for my ordering this product is that it has no sucralose or artificial anything in it. It has only 2 ingredients: Protein isolate and a tiny bit of soy lecithin to keep it from sticking together. It has no taste, so it can be mixed with anything, even apple juice. I recommend it to anyone wanting to be healthy, and for them to stop buying the products with all the artificial stuff.

most bang for your buck
The title says it all - this is the most bang for your buck!
No artificial ANYTHING!! 25g protein, low carbs, NO SUGAR!
The only downside is it needs to be mixed very very well in cold water or it tastiest terrible! Just chug this stuff cause it is not very tasty. But who cares? It does its job and its cheap. BAM!

Love this Whey Powder
The flavor is excellent--I mix it with orange juice. it makes the tart a little lighter and is delicious. Good amount of protein. Since the cost is lower than most protein powders, I am giving it to family members for birthdays and Christmas too.

I mix this in homemade smoothies post-workout. Very fine powder, does not clump, and has no offensive taste all of which is very nice!
Only drawback for me is that I wish the price was a little better. Even with the common 30-40% off it's still a little pricey, but I do like it so because it's so easy to work with and is gentle on the palate.

BEST protein I have used
This stuff is great compared to other proteins I have used.
It has no toxic sweeteners like saccharin, aspartame, acesulfame potassium (ace-k), sucralose, neotame etc, or mixed with thickeners like guar gum or xanthan gum. It mixes with any liquid. It does make a few (2-3) small clumps when stirred but shaken there are none.
There is no aftertaste and takes on the flavor of your drink, if you mix it with water it tastes like thinned out whole milk;. I will be buying again and recommend it to anyone wanting a healthy lifestyle

I was very disappointed in this product. I have been using ON complete meal for years ( vanilla ice cream flavor ).I heard whey is preferred over dairy protein powders. It is supposed to be tasteless. I made a smoothie with fresh fruit and this whey product was horrible. It is not edible.

great protein supplement
It's low carb and dissolves well...at a good price. I've tried other low carb supplements that don't have the richness or mixability of this product. and they cost twice as much.

Very happy with this product!
I am happy to know that this is sold in 5 lb. and unflavored. I do not like any fake sweetners in my protein (such as aspartame, etc.)
I add swanson stevia to this for a protein shake,
the best is to put a scoop of this, in almond milk, w/ stevia in a shaker than put it in your coffee. It is a fitness cappucino..... I love it!
So happy to have this protein....maybe they can start selling 10 lb. :)

Fantastic Whey Protein Isolate!
I have used this whey protein daily for months, and am very pleased with it. It easily dissolves into anything I mix it with and is nearly undetectable - perfect in my tea. I am pleased I switched from flavored (and artificially sweetened) whey to this one. I had wondered about taste, but as I said, it is perfect with anything. As with other products I buy from this brand, the NOW Foods brand is excellent! Highly recommended whey protein isolate. I am very pleased with it!

NOW Whey Isolate
This is a very fair price for this product. I know what the wholesale price is through NOW so I now this is a fabulous price. I would highly recommend that Swanson carry chocolate and vanilla. NOW carries these flavors. They would sale.

I positively love this whey protein, after trying a number of whey protein ( all of which either have tons of sugar, fake and real, or artificial flavors which tastes really nasty) I finally try this and love love it, unflavored, unsweetened, after a hard workout, I stir in a little bit of honey and it's delish.

Isolate is highly bio available
For the uniformed about whey protein, which at least one review was, the main difference between whey isolate and whey concentrate is that "isolate is far more bio available than concentrate". Therefore, if you are concerned about your ability to digest the whey, go with isolate. If you are only concerned about the # grams of protein per serving, then go with concentrate...assuming all other things are equal, such as price per gram.
If you want pure whey isolate without the meaningless extras, difficult to beat the NOW price and quality from Swanson.

Comparing whey protein isolate to whey protein concentrate, there are more grams of protein per same serving size.
As far as cost, NOW is one of the least expensive brands of Whey Protein Isolate on the market. Especially if you want JUST protein, most other brands mix in some other supplements, thereby increasing cost.
Taste is similar to other Protein supplements.
Mixes in water about the same.
