Jamila,

I use some stuff called "Jay Robb's Egg White Protein" and it seems to meet your criteria pretty well. No dairy, no artificial anything. The label just says egg white protein, vanilla flavor, digestive enzymes. It has a very faint sweet taste and mixes well in a shaker bottle. I think its pricey depending on where you order from but I only keep it around when I need a fast meal.

I used "Just Protein" and really liked it as well but you might not like it if you are avoiding dairy. The "Nitrean" looks like a good deal and I'll probably give it a try.

When I do use protein, I like Muscle Milk. It tastes great, and contains 30 g protein and a good amount of fat (which I count as a benefit. It helps with satiety, and if you throw in a piece of fruit or two it approximates Zone proportions for a 2x fat plan). Also has a wide variety of flavors.

However, I am considering dropping it because it includes sucralose, and is fairly pricey ($25 for only 15 servings).

If I can get over the sucralose, Nitrean does look like a good option, especially at the price. Thanks Anthony!

I like the Penta Protein from proteinfactory.com. As Lisa says you can order a custom mix, too.

I made a typo above ... it's 24g of protein in a 30g serving (80%). Sorry about that.

Anthony,
Where do you buy your protein powder? I normally use AllSportsNutrition.com but they don't carry Nitrean.

Why is a blend (whey, casein, egg) superior?

Have to put another vote for Just Protein. The taste is neutral enough that you can mix it with just about anything. I've put it in orange juice, milk, pancakes, waffles, and oatmeal as well as normal stuff like berries and chocolate ice cream. Every couple bags I used to try something different, but was always disappointed and went back. You may be able to get something cheaper and with a little more protein in it. But I doubt you will buy it from a better person who has done more for "The Iron Game". I've talked with Dr. Strossen on the phone a few times and he is a genuinely nice guy with an excellent company and customer service that has no peer.
If I'm giving my money to someone, I would rather give it to someone who gives back to the strength community as much as Iron Mind. And you get a quality product to boot.
My two cents.

Steve, Nitrean is only sold by Atlarge Nutrition.

Kevin, the general consensus is that a blend results in a higher retention.

Kurtis, if you do try something different again in the future, give Nitrean a shot. The comments you made about Strossen are things I say quite often about the owners of Atlarge!

I pretty much stay away from dairy so I guess ooking for a soy protein powder. I checked out the proteinfactory and attempted to make my own but I am not really confident with what to add. I may just try their ready made soy.
