Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a WINNER!!!
I don't often write a review of a product unless it is truly special. Now you know why you are reading this! Yes, I actually bought this product and am not getting paid (In this economy, I wish). The top of the package states, " The best-tasting protein on the planet". They are not kidding!! Absolutely great flavor is the first thing you notice after the drink hits your taste buds. I make mine with coconut milk and throw in some ice cubs after its blended. After a long bike ride or working out, I'll drink a glass to revive me. Each serving has 25 grams of protein, Lactose free, Non-GMO and made with stevia, no sugar, just the good stuff. This product was so good, I ordered another one, seriously!! This is my new go to protein powder. After trying a lot of the other store brands, this one is the winner, hands down!

The #1 SKINNY on Jay Robbs Whey Protein
â€” INTRODUCTION â€”
Why I use protein powder: I am an avid powerlifter and nutrition fanatic who is extremely conscience about â€œwhatâ€ she puts into her body. I have a very aggressive fitness routine where I am in the gym at least 4-5 days a week. Primarily, I engage in a lot of HIIT workouts and then on at least 1 or two of those daysâ€”I test my strength levels. Having a high quality protein powder available after my â€œintenseâ€ workouts is integral to helping muscles repair quicker.
That said, Jay Robbâ€™s Vanilla Whey has earned its place on my TOP 10 list of Best Proteins.
â€” THE PACKAGING â€”
Jay Robbâ€™s Whey Protein comes in a re-sealable Ziploc container. Easy to store and portable enough to carry around (like to the office or the gym). One of my favorites is the recipes listed on the back of the package helping users create many different delicious smoothies.
FYI: I store my bag in the refrigerator for extended freshness.
â€” THE QUALITY â€”
This protein powder has a clean look (meaning the powder is not yellowish.
My batch was not clumpy (a good sign of freshness).
The powder blended extremely well [using a hand-shaker). I would not recommend putting it in an electric blender as it would further breakdown more of the protein structure and you want to maintain as much of the whole protein as possible in order for it to be effective.
If you MUST blendâ€”then by all means add whole fruit to the mixture.
â€” THE INGREDIENTS â€”
Jay Robb Whey Protein powder is rBGH free, non-GMO and contains no gluten, no fat, no cholesterol, no sugar, no aspartame, and no lactose. It does have stevia for those of you who do not like the after taste of it or are hypothyroid.
I am detracting a star here primarily because the label mentions, â€œWhenever ingredients are not available we get our material from other suppliers in the worldâ€. It would be great for customers to know where from in the world those raw materials are being sourced.
Nonetheless, I appreciate the companies â€œtruth in labelingâ€â€”the overall product is great and I will continue to use it.
â€” TASTE â€”
Vanilla is good, but there is a slight aftertaste perhaps from the stevia.
I use the protein with nut milks such as coconut and almondâ€”it tastes absolutely delish.
â€” LOSE WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PROGRAM â€”
Exercise 4days/week for at least 45 minutes of HIIT
Drink a Protein Shake no more than 30 minutes post a workout
Eat 10oz of fresh pineapple and/or papayaâ€”this helps to breakdown protein and aids in building lean muscle
During the Week:
BREAKFAST: Eat light (devoid of sugary foods)
LUNCH: Eat wholesome (such as grilled/baked meats, steamed veggies, low pasta)
DINNER: Eat fresh green leafy salads w/ vinaigrette dressing
ALWAYS: Drink plenty of clean water up to 64oz/day
For those of you looking to build/maintain muscleâ€”still drink a protein shake no more than 30 minutes post an â€œintenseâ€ workout followed by 10oz of fresh pineapple or papaya to help â€œbreak downâ€ the protein particles as it passes through your digestive system.
Remember, the human body has difficulty breaking down protein hence the reason adding an enzyme to the diet is imperative to help your body absorb the benefits of what the protein is intended to do.
â€” CLOSING THOUGHTS â€”
Would I recommend this product? Absolutely Yes!
Jay Robbâ€™s Whey is one of my â€œgo toâ€ proteins and best of allâ€”it works. After using it for 6 weeks coupled with exercise and diet, I lost 8 pounds. Some nights, all I had was one of these protein shakes AFTER a WORKOUT. What I noticed was a tremendous decrease in my appetite the following morning. Research has proven one of the ways to lose weight is caloric-reduction. Jay Robb Whey is a good protein for achieving weight loss (if used properly).
For a variety of tastes, try you Jay Robb Whey Protein with the following:
B) Nut Milks and/or
C) Coconut Water
Best of Everything on your journey to Wellness,

Best Tasting Whey Protein Iâ€™ve Tried
Jay Robb whey protein is the only protein powder my sensitive taste buds can handle. It is a tolerable flavor, with the chocolate being my favorite versus the other flavors in the Jay Robb whey protein powders line. I mix it with cold skim milk using the measuring scoop included in the package to measure and pour, and I use a fork or small whisk to mix it into the milk as well as possible. It never quite gets completely smooth, but the flavor is so vastly better than other protein powders Iâ€™ve tried, I can deal with a few lumps. I would recommend this to anyone recovering from weight loss surgery, in place meals for appetite control, or for muscle nourishment before or after work outs.

I am shocked at how good this is
I am shocked at how good this is. Reading the nutritional label I was expecting this to taste like cardboard and it is SO good! I have tried it alone and with strawberries and it is great both ways. I make my shakes in a blender, so I havenâ€™t tried hand mixing it, but it is so smooth and not grainy at all, which I was also expecting. Itâ€™s the perfect amount of sweetness (stevia!) too. I would normally add stevia to my shakes and I donâ€™t have to with this one. I mix with water and it is SO yum!

Jay Robb - Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate...
I have been doing some tracking of calories, vitamins and nutrients for awhile and noticed that protein intake could be higher. However, I did not want to eat more, or necessarily eat a higher protein diet. So I tried a packet of this from Whole Foods. The only thing was the Stevia taste (yuck). So I found the unflavored/unsweetened powder here on BTA-MALL. I find that it mixes better in a blender, to which can be added water, almond milk, fruit, etc. A serving is 30 g, but I usually just use 15 g as a full 30 can cause a little nausea. I only take it if I haven't met protein requirement in a couple of days. I was surprised by a mild appetite suppressant effect.

I like it a lot
I've been using this product for a couple of years now. I like it a lot. I've only tried the unflavored whey protein. I like it because there's no sugar and no lactose! It's hard to find this. A lot of products have artificial sugar or stevia. I do not consume any of those. It has no flavor so what ever you add to it is what it taste like for example, I use milk and banana in mine. So if that's what you're looking for, look no further. I've also added it to coffee and my Ripple drink. I'm very pleased with this product!

This whey protein is the best I have found
This whey protein is the best I have found. It is sweetened with stevia & has 25 grams of protein per serving. I like that it is fat free & all natural. It is easy to mix & has a really good flavor. I mix a scoop of chocolate with almond milk, crushed ice, & sometimes a small amount of instant coffee & it is delicious. I also have added powdered peanut butter to change up the flavor. It is an effective meal replacement or after work-out drink. It is a good value & stays fresh in the zip-locked pouch. If you are looking for a good whey protein, this is it!

Good product for Diabetics
I have been using this for a few years now, on and off. I love the reputation Jay Robb has, as a clean producer of whey protein isolate. I use a small cup blender to mix it. I usually use banana, some 1% milk, the Whey protein and a few ice cubes. I sometimes use fresh raspberries, chia seeds, fresh ginger and turmeric with the mix; also very tasty and good for inflammation. The powder mixes up beautifully, and is very delicious. I personally love the stevia in the vanilla flavor. I have been ordering it here on BTA-MALL for many years, but sadly, it is no longer part of their auto-ship program. One thing I love is it is fat free and low cal, plus only 1 carb per serving. Being diabetic, that is important. Getting an extra dose of protein when I am hungry, with only 1 carb, really helps control my weight, and lets me add a fruit as well. You can mix this with water, as well as milk, which allows you to keep the drink really low carb, if you so choose. Great, clean, reliable product.

Wonderful taste, great product!
This is delicious. I tried mixing it with water, and adding some ice cubes to make it fluffier, then, I hit on mixing it with plain kefir. Wow! It tasted like chocolate sour cream frosting! Not the consistence of chocolate sour cream frosting, mind you, but the *taste* of it. Delish! Holds off hunger for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours for us here.

Excellent protein powder, new packaging for 2018
I use this every morning for breakfast as my "30 in 30" for the Tim Ferriss eating plan. This was also how I heard about this product, through Tim Ferriss' recommendation. I ordered a new bag in March of 2018 and the packaging is different. My last bag was Dec of 2017 and the packaging was the old familiar. I went to the Jay Robb website to be sure it was authentic, and all the packaging has been updated on the website as well. So, for anyone who may be confused like I was... it's still the real deal even though the bag looks different. :)
