NOW Foods whey protein powder Over time I have purchased around 6 of these 5Lb containers and have never had a complaint until now.Halfway buried in my protein were some hard fragments of who knows what. I ended up running the rest of the powder through a sifter to pull out the remaining shards of whatever. Sadly, I did find more after sifting the container of powder.Pictures are worth 1,000 words so here are three of them. One picture looking in the container at the shards in the powder and two pictures of the shards pulled out after sifting the remaining protein powder.




Best NOW Foods Sport Nutrition I have been a bodybuilder since I was in my teens. I have tried lots of protein powder...and this one is my favorite!!! It is an Isolate, so it has a higher percentage of protein per serving. It also has all important amino acids and no sugar!!! I like the unflavored best. I add cinnamon powder to it for a bit of extra flavor...plus cinnamon is good for you!!!Now, I'm not a nutritionist, but I don't need to be...they have one on staff at Now Foods. And unlike so many of the "braindead customer service reps" at other companies...these people come across as very well informed.Add to that it is less than $60 with shipping included on Amazon Prime? The stuff has a suggested retail of $99. And it comes in a great container with a scoop included. Great price, no sugar and it mixes well....what's not to like??Ignore the reviews that complain about taste. This is unflavored...you can mix it with anything you want and it TASTES FINE. I suspect the reviewers complaining about taste are used to cheap flavored junk. This is a "purist" product!!!This is my "go to" protein powder!!!!!


NOW Foods Whey Protein tl;dr: it's lead, and it's nothing.I've been using this powder for years. My latest shipment, for the first time, had a sticker on it that says "California Residents Proposition 65 WARNING: This product contains a substance known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm." Even though birth defects are not an issue for me (I'm male, and I'm also not planning on having kids), it drove me crazy that they didn't say what substance the warning was for. I also failed to find the answer anywhere online. (NOW Foods does have a "California Residents Proposition 65 Warning FAQs" page, but it doesn't specifically cover this product.)I asked a question on the Amazon product page, but just got the usual collection of replies from people who don't understand that you're NOT SUPPOSED TO ANSWER IF YOU DON'T KNOW. Sheesh.So finally I figured out that I could contact NOW Foods directly (they have a question submission form on their web site), so I did that. They answered the following day. Here's their response:"The warning is based on legal settlements with attorneys that proposed the Prop 65 regulation for the State of California that mandates even low lead levels found naturally in the Whey protein be stickered. See our site on Prop 65 info: [link to the FAQ I mentioned above]".So there you have it. California requires this label if there's a chance of more than 0.5 micrograms per day of lead in a product (I assume for this product they figure people will have one or two servings per day). Obviously it's still under the federal legal limit. The federal regulations seem to be a bit complicated, but for example, they seem to allow up to 15 micrograms per liter in drinking water. They allow 0.5 micrograms per liter (not per day or per serving) in baby food.So, basically, it's not a concern for most of us. Use common sense. Don't try to live on this and nothing else; the lead is unlikely to hurt you, but the lack of other nutrients will. It's a supplement, not a meal.I think this is an excellent product. Almost all protein powders have horrible extra ingredients for "flavor"; with this one you're in control. I usually just go with a scoop of powder, a banana, and water for my post-workout shake. (Actually I only use about 2/3 of a scoop; I think they oversize the scoop a bit.)
