Product Description

Size: 1 Pound

Product Profile

Dietary protein is the only nutrient group that yields an appreciable amount of amino acids upon digestion. Since amino acids are the building blocks needed to create functional and structural proteins in the body, from antibodies for immune function to collagen for skin and bones, it is essential to consume adequate amounts. But when the body lacks an adequate supply of nitrogen compounds like protein and amino acids, a state referred to as “negative nitrogen balance,” it is forced to break down muscle tissue to liberate reserves. The opposite situation, a surplus (i. e., positive nitrogen balance), is necessary for muscle growth. So in order to build or maintain musculature, extra dietary protein is needed.

Beyond Amino Acids

Whey not only contains a complete amino acid profile but also a host of other beneficial factors. These factors include alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, lactoferrin, serum albumin, lysozyme, and immunoglobulins A, G, and M. In addition, whey protein provides more of the essential amino acids than other protein sources. Furthermore, about 25% of the amino acids in whey typically consist of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are readily oxidized as an energy source during and after stress and exercise. Whey protein is a source of cysteine, a precursor to the vital intracellular antioxidant glutathione (GSH). GSH is depleted by oxidative stress that occurs during exercise, immune defense, and healing. Some researchers contend that whey protein plays a role in immune health by providing GSH precursors and increasing levels of GSH in tissue.

Distinguishing Features:

  • 100% Natural Whey Concentrate
  • Easily Dissolvable
  • No Artificial Sweeteners or Additives
  • Reduced Fat & Lactose Content
  • No Added Hormones - rBST Free
Whey Protein: Concentrate vs. Isolate

The debate about “the best type” of whey protein is a frequent topic of discussion on bodybuilding message boards. Typically, one form is advocated based solely upon the manufacturing method used to produce it. For instance, whey protein isolate (WPI) is commonly touted as being a “purer” form of whey because it typically goes through more processing steps. However, these processing steps can destroy and eliminate some of the components that provide additional benefits. Whey protein concentrate (WPC) generally undergoes gentle processing, leaving many of the other natural components intact. In addition, the majority of clinical studies investigating the effects of whey protein supplementation have been conducted using WPC. Ultimately, the type of whey protein chosen (WPC vs. WPI) may not be as critical as the quality of its sources and the other components added to the final product (such as sugar or artificial ingredients versus natural flavoring, etc). When evaluating the quality of a whey protein product, one should read the Nutrition Facts panel to check for the source of ingredients (e. g. non-GMO, rBST-free) and the presence/absence of additives like artificial flavors and sweeteners.

Benefits Of Jarrow Formulas Whey Protein

Jarrow Formulas Whey Protein is made with whey protein concentrate that is certified to be free of recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBST). It comes only from U.S. cows and is made in small batches in an environmentally conscious facility that supports local dairy farms. It uses the high quality rennet enzyme system, which concentrates protein and preserves glutamine while producing a superior end product. Elevated temperatures are avoided during the manufacturing process. High temperatures and spray-drying can lead to the degradation of glutamine, which is an important amino acid for the synthesis of muscle tissue and for immune function. Finally, the product is ultrafiltered to remove greater amounts of lactose and fat from the final product, and it is free of any artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.

This protein powder tastes good (or neutral) and mixes well.
PC Mountain
This protein is great in the sense that it doesn't have any weird tastes, and it doesn't have a strange smell either.
Steph
With unflavored you can make any flavor you want and it tastes so much better.

I recently starting weight training, and so I've been looking for a whey protein that doesn't taste gross. I chose this UNFLAVORED whey protein on the basis of other reviews, and I was not disappointed! This product has worked really well for me. I wanted a whey protein that didn't have artificial flavors or fake sweeteners--even though these additives ostensibly mask the funny whang aftertaste of whey protein, I think they actually taste worse than the whang they're trying to mask! I also dislike overly sweet, sickeningly, cloyingly sweet products. This product is unflavored, with no additives or sweeteners, and it took me a long time to find one.

It's worked out great--I put it in my oatmeal, along with fruit and milk. I also make awesome smoothies with it! Instead of the awful fake vanilla flavor, I add my own real vanilla! Instead of fake fruit or chocolate-imitation flavor, I add real fruit and chocolate! My favorite is a mango smoothie, which is better than anything you'd buy it in a store. I've also tried baking with it. So far, bread isn't a good idea--it makes the texture too rubbery. So if you want to bake with whey protein, I advise to stick to no-knead type quick breads.

If you don't like overly fake-sweet and bad imitation chocolate/vanilla/strawberry flavors, then I recommend this product. Whey protein isn't the greatest tasting stuff on its own, so if you plan to mix the unflavored powder straight with water and drink it straight...I would not advise. But mixed up with juice, it's good. With oatmeal, it's good. Oh yeah, and it's REALLY good if you stick it in the blender with coffee and milk for a frappucino-type drink!

I haven't tried the Jarrow Formula with flavors, so I don't know if they're good or bad.

I hate protein powder. I hate it with a passion normally reserved for racists and loaning money to family but I also hate meat and my nutritionist told me that I needed to start consuming one or the other. I have a strong dislike for chocolate and peanut butter unless it's in the form of a Reese's (which is oddly enough not laced with protein) and can't stand Strawberries so I bought this unflavored. When made with just water, it's tasteless. Completely, utterly, blessedly tasteless. There was a light milk aftertaste but nothing to write home and kill a cow over. When mixed with Splenda and a bit (less than 1 tsp) of jam, it took on the flavor of the jam. My only regret was that I just bought a pound of it.

As the reviews said earlier, it does keep you full for hours. I've been leaving a scoop in my (clean!) mixing cup thingy and use it when I'm out and about and don't have time to stop and eat something that doesn't come through a drive-thru window. I will be buying this again but this time, I'll get the two pound size.

I was a caregiver for a family member who has since passed away, and I am now just getting the opportunity to write reviews for all the products I purchased here during the time that I have provided care.

The doctors and nurses recommended I give my patient Carnation Instant Breakfast, Ensure, or Boost, or just plain Whey Protein, and I looked around, and priced it all, and then I found Jarrow Formulas Whey Protein, Unflavored, here.

I purchased this for the sole purpose of getting more fluids and nutrients into him.

He would not drink the volume that was prescribed, but he loved ice cream, and so I would mix up a batch of Jarrow Whey Protein with milk, a little sugar and dash of vanilla, and then freeze it into an "ice-milk" in a Cuisinart Pure Indulgence Ice Cream Maker, then top it with a little chocolate sauce, and that way I could get him to eat as much as he wanted.

So, if you are a caregiver for a loved one, and nutrition and fluids are a serious issue, then perhaps some of this advice will help you.

Buy this with confidence!

I bought Jarrow's Unflavored whey protein to add into my smoothies. I liked the fact that it was unflavored thereby allowing me to add it to any flavored smoothie I wanted without having to try to make flavor combinations work. I use a Blendtec to make my smoothies. I don't know if it is because the Blendtec runs at such a high speed or what but it makes the whey protein in the smoothie have almost what I will describe as a fluffy texture. The texture is not quite foamy not quite thicker... fluffy is the only word I can think of to describe it.

Other than the odd texture when blended, it also does not dissolve well when just added to a liquid and stirred. This may incorporate better if I had protein shake blender bottle, but I don't so I can't say if it would be better. As far as the taste of the powder goes, alone it has a slight malted flavor or even coffee creamer taste to it. Since I haven't been able to completely dissolve the powder into a liquid by stirring it, I cannot say if the flavor would come through.

I have also tried to cook with this protein. I have added it to stews and chili so far. The whey protein adds no discernible flavors. However the texture of the chili and stews will start to thicken up with the addition of this protein. Not good or bad depending on what consistency you want your dish ending up.

PROS:
1. I like the fact that there is no added sweeteners
2. No added flavors to interfere with the flavors of my smoothies

CONS:
1. Weird texture when blended in the blender
2. Does not dissolve completely in liquid
