Need unflavored protein that isn't weird



Recommended Posts

Hey all-

I am 5 weeks post op, and most of the time I drink 8 oz of skim with 1 scoop of Jay Robb strawberry Protein powder. The thing is, that gets old after a while (even though it is quite good), and sometimes I don't want to use almost 200 calories for a Protein shake. I still want to get all of my Protein in (my nut says 60-70 grams) but I would like to have an option where I have unflavored protein I can add to SF pink lemonade or something along those lines. I purchased powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury (which everyone says is the best, flavorless etc), and I can sometimes taste it and ALWAYS smell it. The smell is so weird/bad that I can't bring myself to drink it really. Sometimes in desperation I just pinch my nose and chug it, but gross. Can anyone suggest an unflavored whey protein isolate (it has to be whey protein isolate, nut says) that isn't disgusting or smelly?!

Thanks!

Good luck, I'm interested to hear opinions on this. I've tried the Unjury unflavored and Optimum nutrition any whey unflavored Protein. They do ok if I'm cooking with it. Like if I make protein pancakes with cottage cheese in them, I throw in a scoop of Protein Powder and then I can't taste it. But every time I mix it in a drink I can taste and smell it.

I thought that the Protein Powder wasn't supposed to be heated? On the Unjury it says 'Don't heat over 100 degrees' or something along those lines. You've been cooking with it and eating it and it's okay?

Hmm, I never noticed that on the Unjury container, but I believe you I never really looked. I only tried the sample. The ON seems to be fine. I've never had trouble. I know alot of people throw a scoop into their coffee too. The container for the optimum nutrition one says it's great for baking and lists beverages that it can be mixed into including coffee and hot chocolate so I would assume that is fine. I guess they all just vary.

I tried Unjury and didn't like it at all. It had a weird smell and taste to me. I love Any Whey from Optimum Nutrition. I put it in my coffee every morning (after I stir in some liquid Creamer from the fridge to cool it down). You can tell there is a little something in there but it's not bad at all. I've also mixed it in Soup and other foods and can't tell it's there. I order it online. You should definitely try it.

I definitely agree ... this was the best. I added it to yogurt, pudding, oatmeal, warm cocoa, etc. I ordered it from Amazon at a good price.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
