Can't go wrong with this one, probably the best, mixes well and tastes great. Always buy on sale though.

Eh, I wouldn't say it's the best. They're just an established brand. The product is just okay.

Ingredient profile shows they're just middle of the road, with some not so great stuff added.

It's a protein blend, not a straight isolate. Their regular prices are way overpriced for what you're getting. Natural and Artificial flavours just means proprietary chemical concoction that we don't have to tell you. If it was just "Natural flavours" then at least the list is limited to a few hundred known ingredients... It has Acesulfame Potassium, which is trash. And Lactase, which is a digestive enzyme to help digest lactose. So that would tell you that the whey concentrate isn't a small percentage, but large enough to possibly upset stomachs of those with lactose intolerance.

Not saying it's a bad deal, it's still decent. But ON isn't anything special.

24g protein per 30.4g scoop. So ~79% protein. That's basically where a concentrate sits, which tops out around 80%. Isolates are generally 90%+. Since it's a blend, with isolate listed first, you would hope it would at least be higher than a normal concentrate, which this isn't.

Where do you guys see the 3.47kg bag. All I see is the 5lbs or 10lbs sizes, neither convert to 3.47kg?

OOS, But ON is the only brand I buy now. You can mix it into water or milk with a spoon since its instantized, and the flavor is 10/10 for all flavors I've tried. It's worth the extra money IMO. Try it first before scratching it off your list.

I've also had Musclepharm, myprotien.ca, kaizen, allmax. IMO, The only other brand that tastes just as good, and has no after taste is Allmax.

On the image on amazon, the package says whey protein isolate? How can they say that if it's a blend of isolate and concentrate?

They're advertising isolate heavily, but they do word it as the primary/first ingredient each time in descriptions. They don't say it's a blend, which it obviously is.

They're very good at marketing, but the product is nothing special. It's just a blend, and not a very clean or high quality one.
