Partially hydrolyzed whey isolate, whey isolate, natural and artificial flavors, soy lecithin, and sucralose.

The Chocolate Bliss flavor has some cocoa added to it and the Strawberry Cream one has some malic acid and beet powder for coloring.


Between $25 and $35 for a 1.65 pound tub, so that’s $1.25 per scoop or about 5 cents per gram of protein. Note that some retailers increase the price to $45 per tub or 7 cents per gram of protein.

That’s pricier than regular Gold Standard Whey but very reasonably priced for an isolate of this quality.

Inexpensive for an isolate
Low in sodium and cholesterol
Very tasty
Tested by Informed Choice for banned substances

Not technically free from carbs or lactose
Contains soy and artificial sweeteners and flavors
