    Jay Robb whey protein

    Does anyone use Jay Robb's whey protein powder? I went to Vitamin shoppe to buy the BSN chocolate peanut butter protein powder; I've never tried it but i love the chocolate one so I wanted to give it a whirl.. But the salesman suggested Jay Robb's instead. It only has 110 cal per scoop and 1g of fat. I took a sample and it actually wasnt bad. But i have never heard of it before! So I'm a little hesitant since it's not even on the bodybuilding superstore..Now i dont know which to go with.. Any ideas?

    I've actually used Jay Robb's protein powder, but didn't like the taste at all. I much prefer ON's 100% whey which is pretty comparable to Jay Robb's, though I think Jay Robb's protein is 100% isolate (not sure though). You can't go wrong either way, like I said I just couldn't get used to the flavor of JR. JR's protein powder is more expensive too, definitely not worth the extra $$.

    I have BSN Syntha 6 (chocolate milkshake) and the flavor is outstanding, definitely the best I've tried. However, I mix this with milk and use as more of a meal replacement rather than post workout shake.

    On a mini-cut, then onto maintenance mode for the summer.

    i've heard its a decent protein, but all in all whey protein is whey protein and I'm not going to shell out 40+ dollars for 20 servings when I can spend 35-40 on something like dymatize or ON and get ~70 servings

    Smile

    Thanks guys! To tell ya the truth I just bought JR's sample for $2.49. So, I didnt even notice how much the tubs of it were. But if its more expensive to begin with, I dont even have to think about it further! I love BSN so i'm gonna go with that one!

    You know what though-- I love BSN lean dessert and it only has 130 cal per scoop. However, the tub is sooo small, I go through it way to quickly! I think I'm gonna buy the BSN Chocolate Peanut butter; Even though its 200 cal per scoop the tub is like 3x the size and I can use 1/2 scoop so its only 100 cal. Plus, it'll last me much longer!

    Thanks for your responses!!

    sounds like you already made your decision and i'd advise the same as the others. jay robb is good choice if you're looking for a pure isolate only sweetened with stevia AND cost isn't an issue. otherwise, for taste and quality, there are plenty of better options.
