Review: First Time Issue with a Whey Protein

Let me start this with, I have been tested for lactose intolerance and that came up negative. I know someone will likely try to tell me I must be intolerant, but trust me. I go through periods of eating a lot of dairy to times of not eating it at all and notice no difference.

I have never had an issue with whey protein powder before using Bob’s Red Mill Whey Protein Powder… I do not know if it is because I have been using the grass-fed whey protein powder from Promix Nutrition (which I had this yesterday without issues) for the last few years or what. Maybe grass-fed really is better?

I picked up Bob’s Red Mill Whey Protein Powder for a very reasonably price (58¢ / serving) and additional 20% off at Ocean State Job Lot. It is not expired. It tastes good too. However, 2 weeks ago it made me uncomfortably bloated and gassy.

I have loved many other Bob’s Red Mill products, especially their flours and oats, so I was surprised to feel as though the product that says “premium quality” is really of poor quality. Maybe it is because it is not grass-fed or maybe something about how it is processes just does not work with my digestion. I do not know, but I wanted to share my feedback. Also, people say I just love everything I review too much, so here is an example of something I do not care for.
