Whey is a natural dairy protein that is derived from the cheese making process. Most commercial whey supplements are derived from cow’s milk, which is comprised of 6.25% protein: 20% in the form of whey. Whey protein supplements utilize the concentrated protein, eliminating the lactose and milk fat making it a remarkable source of protein.
Whey is a complete protein, meaning it contains all essential amino acids, which are vital to your metabolism, and to making your body function properly for good health. Whey also boasts the highest concentrations of branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) found in nature. Branched chain amino acids are an important source of energy during exercise and play a key role in protein synthesis.
Whey protein, when properly processed has the highest biological value of all proteins. Biological value relates to how much of the protein consumed is actually absorbed, retained and used by your body. More specifically, biological value is the measure used to rate protein quality through nitrogen retention. The higher the quality of protein, the more nitrogen is absorbed and retained by your body.

Best Whey protein I have tried
Over the years I have tried several types of protein powders; soy, rice, whey and several brands of each. I have decided for my personal use to continue using Designer Whey protein powder, because it tastes great. I have tried the natural and the almond... both blend well w/frozen berries and fresh bananas, which is what I usually add when blending. I will continue to buy this product as long as it is on the market - some of the others I have tried have disappeared off the shelf, as have several of the health food stores where I purchased them.teacher
Not bad at all! Flavors are great,mixing is fast and protein levels are excellent! Just need a low lactose formula (please!). Beside that,this is a good product to buy if you want a flavorful protein.Excellent Whey
I've used several brands of whey protein, most have added sweetners. Designer Whey was one of the few that has a natural flavor with no added sweetners. I didn't have any aftertaste and it's great by itself or with some fruit mixed in.great protein product
by Kathy Gee
This is one of my favorite protein powders.Taste So Good!!
This is the first whey protein I ever bought and it is one of the best. Usually protein powders don't taste that great but this one is the best I have ever tasted. Not only does it taste good but it works too. For the course that I took this product I gained a pound of muscle mass. I would recommend the chocolate flavor since it taste the best.

Correction Joy - it is naturally and artificially flavored .One of the worst...
by Curtis Churico
Any protein that has artificial flavorings cannot be one of the best - point blank. One of the ingredients in this overrated product is ACESULFAME, a very dangerous chemical - read on.
Information on Aspartame and Other Chemical Sweeteners:
Acesulfame Potassium (K) was approved for use by the FDA as a safe artificial sweetener in July, l988. It is a derivative of acetoacetic acid. Unfortunately, several potential problems associated with the use of acesulfame have been raised. They are based largely on animal studies since testing on humans remains limited. The findings showed the following:
Acesulfame K stimulates insulin secretion in a dose dependent fashion thereby possibly aggravating reactive hypoglycemia ("low blood sugar attacks").
Acesulfame K apparently produced lung tumors, breast tumors, rare types of tumors of other organs (such as the thymus gland), several forms of leukemia and chronic respiratory disease in several rodent studies, even when less than maximum doses were given. According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, it was petitioned on August 29, l988 for a stay of approval by the FDA because of "significant doubt" about its safety.
