Rated 5 out of 5 by Jujubean Best Way to Whey
It took me a while to find a quality whey protein to make my post-workout shakes or bump up the protein intake after a detox. This is the one I chose based on the fact that it is from grass-fed rBGH free cows. It mixes up smooth and thickens nicely in either low-fat milk or almond milk. The chocolate taste is really good. Doesn't taste chemical or medicinal like pre-engineered protein shakes. Just tastes like a dessert! I like to add chocolate Amazing Grass, hemp seed, and coconut oil to it for extra nutrition. Yum!

Rated 3 out of 5 by jellystone I've tasted better
If you are sensitive to weird tasting products, this is not for you. I can drink it, but I'd rather not! The sweetening ingredients taste very odd and there's no covering them up. This product would be far better with no added flavorings. (Most of us add our own stuff anyway, don't we?) The vanilla variety is less offensive, but I sent both products back to Swanson. I'm sticking with BIOCHEM Whey Protein in Vanilla and Natural (unflavored). The Biochem product is not unpleasant at all. The vanilla is not "fakey" and does not complete with anything I have added. Nice texture, and it comes in a large can. Don't buy the organic variety, however. The organic whey is processed differently and it comes out smelling and tasting weird no matter what you put in it. Buy the regular Biochem Whey Protein and you will happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maryl a rare find
Hard enough to find grass-fed beef at a reasonable price; however, this product gives you the best quality protein which can be added to a morning or afternoon shake.
A lot of protein bang for the buck.

I am not eating sugar so I was glad to find a protein powder sweetened with steiva. But it is so sweet, that it tastes awful. That awful strong stevia taste. I"m going to try cutting it down with some unsweetened powder. But I think I'm better off buying the unsweetened one and add my own steiva.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SwansonGuy2013 Best Protein Powder I've had so far
Fantastic taste - Love the PureLo Lo Han sweetener, looked it up and found out it is derived from Monk Fruit, ALL NATURAL. Good balance of vitamins and a decent amount of protein per serving. Grass-fed, rBGH-Free is an added plus and you can definitely tell from the taste. Mixes great in any kind of milk (I use unsweetened Almond milk). If I had anything negative to say, it would be the price vs. quantity. $16 for under a pound can get a bit steep depending on how often you take it, but honestly, I don't think this will stop me from purchasing in the future. Maybe consider selling in 2 pound quantities?

Rated 2 out of 5 by LCCS Bad after taste is hard to take
I wanted to like this product, but I tried mixing it with everything from water to hot chocolate and the after taste was so bad I couldn't finish it. It also upset my stomach within about 30 minutes so can't recommend.

I purchased this for my 15 year old son; if he likes it, it must be good! I use the vanilla version of this whey protein and enjoy the taste, plus, with Swanson's, I feel confident that it's reasonably priced .

Good taste. Provides protein without a lot of extras.
Like that it is whey from natural sources. Compares in effectiveness to a very expensive product. Great value! Highly recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NCnative Dear Swanson, Pls sell bulk
Great product except it is sold in these tiny containers. Very unhappy that Swanson will not sell this in a bulk quantity. Mixes well, no soy, great product. Waste of plastic for tiny containers.

It is difficult to find Grass fed whey, but I'm so happy I did!! I really like that It is not sweetened, I can then sweeten with honey if I so choose. It tastes great, mixes well and gives me what I need with out all the additives. Chocolate is my favorite, but vanilla is yummy too, I add all kinds of frozen fruits to mix to my own taste. Chocolate with frozen dark sweet cherries.. tastes like a chocolate covered cherry and I don't have to add any other sweetening. My go to for a sweet healthy treat! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MHB85 Tastes Great!
This is one of the best tasting protein shakes i've tried in the past decade (and I've tried a lot!). Although it is a bit more expensive than your general whey protein in the stores this one is quality and is derived from Grass fed, rBGH-free cows and you get more for your money than your other natural whey protein products. I gave everything a 5 star except the Quality (4/5) just because it is not fully USDA organic. However, just because it is not USDA organic it doesn't mean that it is of a lesser quality compared to other brands. I will definitely keep ordering this product!

I add this to my healthy shakes in the morning. I like that it adds just a bit of chocolate flavor and gives me a supply of protein that gets me through half the day. I love that the whey is a concentrate and from grass fed beef.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FitDoc1 WORKS FOR ME
There are a lot of good Whey Protein powders out there, and many are rBGH-Free. Many taste pretty good and mix pretty well. I buy and use this particular product, because it is a Concentrate, rather than an isolate, and it is from Grass-Fed cows. The Aminogen enzyme it contains helps clinch the deal. As with many of the other good Whey Protein powders, this one mixes well, supplies a good amount of protein per scoop, and produces good results.
However, I have taken protein powders for decades, and I find that Swanson's Ultra Grass-Fed, Certified rBGH-Free Chocolate Whey Protein Powder does everything better and costs less than others that claim comparable attributes. The flavor of this Swanson Grass Fed Whey Protein is surprisingly good, the energy I get is quick and lasting, and my strength / muscle building and toning results are very noticeable.
Grass-Fed is the clincher for me.
Think about it.
I like and highly recommend this Swanson Ultra Grass-Fed, Certified rGBH-Free Chocolate Whey Protein Powder to everyone, no matter your age, objectives, or condition. Hey - - - WORKS FOR ME.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FitDoc1 WAY BETTER THAN OTHERS
Swanson's Ultra Grass-Fed, Certified rBGH-Free Chocolate Whey Protein Powder is WAY BETTER THAN OTHERS. That is my opinion from regular usage, and I have used Protein Powders since the 1960's. As the old saying goes, "That's my opinion, and I'm stickin' to it!"
Way better flavor.
Way better miscibility.
Way better digestibility.
Way better compatibility with other ingredients.
Way better source: Grass Fed Cows, rBGH-Free.
Way better form: Concentrate, not isolate.
Way better processing.
Way better Amino Acid / Nutrient profile.
Way better price.
Yep! I really like Swanson's Ultra Grass-Fed, Certified fBGH-Free Chocolate Whey Protein Powder WAY, WAY BETTER THAN OTHERS.
I highly recommend this exact product for energy, stamina, muscle and strength building / toning / shaping / recovery, satisfying one's appetite, and providing overall high quality protein nourishment no matter what one's age and regular diet.
It is easy to tell when your body is 'satisfied' with enough protein. The hunger stays away, and everything cruises along on an even keel. I'm a huge fan. . . . . . . This WHEY is WAY BETTER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JosquindP Good Taste, Good Quality & Good Vaue
For me, an important thing with protein powder is taste. Let’s face it, if it doesn’t taste good you won’t use it. This stuff tastes good. But that’s not the reason I bought it at first. I first bought it because they did everything right: it comes from grass-fed cows, it’s non-denatured, non-acid, cold processed and it’s protein concentrate. From what I’ve been reading for the past couple of years, these are all the most things for protein powder. Not to mention, it’s half the cost of the comparable products. Slam dunk - well done Swanson!
