Whey is a simple and usable protein by the body, no negative side effects at all after consuming it. It comes with a great taste, not leaving any chemically aftertaste in your mouth after consumption like other products have, as Now Foods has done a good work wen creating it. It mixes instantly to create any nice shake you feel like and feels healthy while drinking it.
It’s safe for Type2 Diabetic patients too because it has got a less than one carb of sugar. Replacing a meal per day with it helps lose 20 lbs, but ofcourse for it to work you have to exercise, like maybe walk few miles daily. Just ensure that you get protein with every meal, so when you get it, you can either eat it with fats or carbohydrates, but not all of them. Eating protein with meal improves the body’s insulin response and after meal assists in controlling the glucose levels.
The Flavored one comes in different flavors Dutch Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry. From all the flavored ones, I liked the Dutch Chocolate and am not sorry for it at all. The Flavored ones may not be bad, but it’s always good going after the unflavored ones. Not that flavored ones are bad.

Now Foods Whey Protein Isolate Dutch Chocolate flavor comes in a 6 pound container. It is Ultrafiltered and Microfiltered as well. The product does not taste bad, it has got a smooth taste. Mix it with Milk or Water and you will be fine. To be on the bright side, It taste very good actually and when it comes to the dissolving part, it dissolves well. It’s super smooth when you blend it and is way much better than I thought. It’s one of the delicious flavors available in the markets.
It can be mixed with hot coffee too. If you’re thinking of trying it with Vanilla creamer or something that will make your shake taste better then don’t hesitate. So if you prefer your coffee sweet then go for it.
I recommend these Whey Protein Isolate products to anyone who wants to bulk up
