What’s The Deal?
This is a good whey isolate, and a very affordable one at that! It has been extracted using the Cross-Flow Microfiltered process (CFM).
CFM is a way of producing whey protein isolate that has little fat, but retains the molecular fractions – like glycomacropeptide – that give whey many of it’s health properties. Basically, it makes the resulting protein isolate keep the good but separates out as much of the bad as possible.
This process also keeps the whey at stable temperatures and pH which means less denatured proteins, more calcium, and more amino acids – a higher quality end result all around.
The NOW isolate contains Lactoglobulin, a-Lactalbumin, Immunoglobulins, and Glycomacro Peptides.
Day to Day Usage
Designed for easy mixing. This protein will not leave a gritty mess behind. No real problems here. This is a good whey to just throw in your shake and forget about it.
Flavored with stevia to drop the sugar count, but still provide sweetness. The flavor is good, if a little on the subtle side. This is not necessarily bad though.
The Bottom Line
A good whey isolate at an amazing price.
