What are your thoughts on this raw grass-fed whey protein powder?

Thanks to the Real Food Summit I found a raw, grass-fed whey protein powder. Has anyone here come across this? Tried it? What do you think of it?

You can learn more about it at the following 2 links: http://www.rawwheyprotein.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=1817 http://completehealthdallas.com/RawWheyProtein.html

I haven't enjoyed whey protein all year but do love smoothies with them. I think I might try this although its very expensive. Do you think it's worth the cost?

You are right. It's probably not worth the cost at all. I just would rather still buy something from a grass-fed cow.

Tyler F - No. Not for us really but I'd still prefer something from a grass-fed animal compared to one that is raised in a factory.

Is is "worth the money" to continue to support the abomination that is factory farming? Grass-fed is always the right choice.

Once something is processed to turn into a long shelf life powder I'm not too sure I'd be concerned about the provenance of the original milk. Figure it's a little detail that maybe ain't worth the dollars.

I personally don't think it is worth the money. grass fed affects the fat more than the whey isolate.

I'd be interested to know this too, thanks for asking. Would also be nice to see how people tolerate it compared to traditional whey. I've noticed a bit of a difference between standard (Dymantize etc) versus more pure sources (Absolute etc), but I still don't tolerate it very well. Whey is whey, for me :(

Does it matter whether or not it's grass fed after it's been processed so much?

My thought is that if most of the evil ends up in the fat, and the isolate filters out all the fat, do you still need the grass fed isolate that costs 3 times more? Or maybe I'm being cheap.

I prefer this product to whey powders. It's cold processed so the proteins aren't damaged the way they are when exposed to heat processing. This one is plant based but it comes from several different plant protein sources so it has a complete amino acid profile. Check it out here (Amazon sells it too): http://www.sunwarrior.com/product-info/warrior-blend/

The upgraded whey doesn't come from cheese production so there is less mycotoxins
