Can some give me a suggestion as to what type of protein powder I buy? I am basically just looking for something to add to oatmeal...preferably vanilla flavor. I don't know if I should be getting whey or soy or what.

Without hesitation, Nitrean. Hands down one of the best tasting, best mixing, and highest quality powders out there. And it's a blend (whey, casein, egg) so it's superior to whey and soy.

I have never heard of Nitrean. Is it really that good?

Just Protein from IronMind rocks. Tastes great, mixes great. It's a whey, casein and egg blend too. No Soy. No GI distress (at least for me). Good stuff.

Jeanette, it really does taste great. I'm a big fan of their chocolate, but I use the vanilla as well. Especially with fruit, pancakes, etc.

I've never tried the "Just Protein" from ironmind, but let's compare.

Nitrean
Serving size: 30g
Protein per serving: 28g (80% of serving size)
Container size: 4.6lbs (3.68lbs actual protein)
Cost: $35.95 + 5.95 shipping (41.90)

Just Protein
Serving size: 28g
Protein per serving: 18g (64% of serving size)
Container size: 5lbs (3.2lbs actual protein)
Cost: $41.95 + 10.00 shipping (51.95)

So with Nitrean you get more protein overall, more protein per serving, costs less, tastes awesome, and mixes easily. Sorry Just Protein ...

See, I don't do any artificial sweeteners, and Nitrean has sucralose.
I'm lactose intolerant and Just Protein is probably gonna make me want to die.

Anyone know of any artificial sweetener free, non lactose containing, protein powders at all?

Jamila,

JP has a nice taste (no artificial sweeteners - just almond and vanilla extract). I like it with frozen fruit, but I can drink it mixed up with water just fine. For what it's worth, IronMind sells a small sample for $3.
