Rated 1 out of 5 by Mommyofabc Won't order anymore
I don't really understand why after so much success with this product, being mentioned in numerous books (especially THM), and very high sales as a result, you would have a) changed the product in the first place and b) not changed it back to the ACTUAL original product since then. Very disappointing, as I still have not found something I like as much as the ORIGINAL product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GojiReview Changed the ingredients for the worse
So sad this product has been lowered in quality and the 100% whey protein isolate is no longer available. Please get rid of the whey concentrate and bring back the whey protein isolate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dalene Not the same product
I'm returning it for a refund. Not the same product as it used to be. Granular and my kids won't eat the smoothies I put it in, but they would when I used the old stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MileafterMile Perfect Protein!
I have now been using for about a year now and it has been great! I currently run 60+ miles per week and this is a great way to get a little extra protein in! It tastes great in my protein shakes and the canister will last about 2 months, depending on how much you use it. I would recommend it to any athlete or non-athlete! Great Protein Powder!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer SW1233 Protein Powder
The old formula was better. Better taste, better value, better ingredients, better product all around. I'm hanging in there using this inferior product but if the old formula is not brought back soon I will be going elsewhere for my protein powder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaroburk The more I learn about the importance of protein the more I struggle to eat enough of it. This powder has helped me receive the benefits of a diet rich in protein.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chapppie Okay, but prefer the smaller container
This is the second type of whey powder we've used from Swanson. This bigger container's powder is more granular than the first smaller container we tried and doesn't mix as well in the shakes we make. Not a bad product, but not one we'll purchase again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Valah Not buying anymore, it's not the same product !
If you bought this in the past, and loved it, you might want to think again about buying this product!
The taste is different, it does not dissolve good, it leaves lumps! I used to love it because it dissolved so well it tasted like water with a vanilla cake hint...
Why did you guys have to ruin a good product and replace it with this nasty thing?

Rated 1 out of 5 by DisappointedMarci Horrible with the changes
Prior to changing this whey protein powder, it was my favorite. After the change, it was no longer recommended due to not just whey isolate. But, I really, really liked the old one and was willing to be off plan to have a protein powder that I liked. This stuff was horrible. Normally, I can finish a container of protein powder even if it isn't my favorite. I tried it 3 times and am throwing the rest away. How could you change such a great product to make it so bad?

Rated 1 out of 5 by akrick Shame on you Swanson
I have been ordering the old protein for many years, and was shocked that one day I ordered and received a different product. Not only did you have the same product number on a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT item, but you lessened the quality, protein amount, taste, and now made it a concentrate. Shame on you for changing this and ruining your relationship with many loyal customers. I will never order from you again with your lack of honesty to someone that has been a loyal customer. What do I get in return for all the years I've bough from you? Lied to and cheated. No Thank you. Get with it Swanson.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CustomerDave Why ruin a good thing???
This used to be a great product. Very dissatisfied with change to product. Sludgy, tastes bad and has less protein.
This is pretty much an entirely different product. Swanson should change the item number so return customers who are reordering by item number are more easily made aware that the product changed. I returned my order.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pict they changed their formula
this is NOT the same product it was a year ago. A year ago this was all whey ISOLATE. Now it is mostly whey concentrate. The isolate is better tolerated and mixes better. This product is poorer quality than it was.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Huhtagirl Bad change
we've been using this protein for quite some time and LOVED it!! It mixed well in water and tasted great. But they recently changed it. Now it tastes AWFUL and is very difficult to mix. Until they change it back, I will not buy another one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by emmalynn Poor Isolate Protein
This used to be a good protein but it has changed!
Instead of good whey protein it has been diluted with whey concentrate instead of being isolate whey protein. Disappointed with this vital change and returned the protein.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nannyx5 BRING BACK OLD FORMULA-You lost a customer
I have been using this product for quite some time now and am very disappointed with my last purchase. I bought a few at one time and never realized some were different. I got some of the old (REALLY GREAT) product and some of the new stuff which is gross. The isolate is delicious, and such a great product.
Now it has concentrate in it. Gritty, doesnt mix good, nutritional values are off. Added more fat, lost protein and tastes TERRIBLE.
Such a shame. This was the first protein powder I ever actually liked and they went and ruined it.
Well, wont be buying this again...
BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA-THIS STUFF IS TERRIBLE

Rated 1 out of 5 by KayKayH LOVE the OLD formula!
They have reformulated this protein powder. The old powder had only whey isolate, NOT whey concentrate. It was much better, actually it was amazing. This new formulation is awful. Please change it back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LoriK Will not be purchasing again
We have purchased this product for quite some time and have loved the value, taste and overall quality of this product. I am not sure we will even finish the last container we just bought. The quality, taste and texture have changed so much we will not purchase again. I hope that this product will be changed back to the original formula or that I can find something that compares.

Just want my husband wanted to add extra protein to his diet. He just mixes w/water & drinks twice daily. He loves the taste, i live the price. Even better if you can get it at 20% off sometimes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ken1 Do your homework
There is a huge difference in value to your body between whey concentrate and whey isolate,do your homework before buying isolate.Too many people just go by taste,looks,price,etc.

Rated 1 out of 5 by missalf Product Change Ruins a Good Thing
I first purchased this product a year ago when it was tasty, packed with 20 grams of protein per scoop and mixed wonderfully. Now it tastes horrible, has less protein and doesn't mix well at all.
Whoever decided these product changes were a good thing obviously didn't bother to taste the stuff. I'm off to find another protein powder with 1 carb per scoop that doesn't make me gag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RaneyDay A Definite Downgrade
I use Swanson’s and will continue to recommend them for other supplements, but I can’t recommend this one. This is one of the worst, if not the very worst tasting whey protein I have used over the last 25 years, and even though it is vanilla, it settles-out with a brown tinted sludge. Furthermore, this new formula has changed from 45 servings of 20 grams of protein to now 45 servings of only 16 grams of protein. A loss of 180 grams of protein per container!

Rated 1 out of 5 by THM2014 No longer Trim Healthy Mama
Until a few months ago this product was the talk of many in the Trim Healthy Mama community; all over social media. It's still the talk but in a negative way. Swanson's changed their formula a bit ago. Now the product is no longer consider "on plan" for those following the recommendations of THM. In addition, the product is more yellow, a dusty look or like koolaid, doesn't taste all that great, or seem to keep the hunger feeling away as long as before.
I used the previous formula of this product for almost a year and loved it. It was a great price as well so that made this premium whey a really great choice. It's disappointing to learn that this formula change is so huge; causing many households to no longer purchase this item or return the product.

Loved this protein powder... until they changed the formula! Won't be buying again unless the original formula is brought back. Buying a better product elsewhere...
