You want to make sure you're getting whey protein CONCENTRATE, not the isolate. Some people consider it a super-food. I think it depends on why you want to use it. I used to use it mixed with smoothies (as a meal replacement) years ago when I was on fat flush. I don't do smoothies too much anymore but even mixed in a glass of raw milk or organic juice, it can be a good addition to your daily food consumption.

Info here from Dr. Mercola:

Whey Protein Concentrate: Whey protein, a byproduct of milk and cheese, has been linked to a variety of health benefits, including:

1. Helping your insulin work more effectively, which helps maintain your blood sugar level after a meal

2. Promoting healthy insulin secretion, which is imperative for optimal health

3. Helping to promote your optimal intake of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for your overall wellness

4. Helping you preserve lean body tissue (particularly during exercise) as it delivers bioavailable amino acids and cysteine

5. Supporting your immune system, as it contains immunoglobulins

6. Maintaining blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range

Whey protein concentrate (not to be confused with the far inferior whey protein isolate) is an ideal choice as it's a rich source of amino acids.

It's also the best food for maximizing your glutathione levels as it provides all the raw materials for glutathione production (cysteine, glycine and glutamate). Glutathione is your body's most powerful antioxidant and has even been called "the master antioxidant." It is a tripeptide found inside every single cell in your body. When shopping for a whey protein, be sure to look for a product that is:

•Cold pressed
•Derived from organic grassfed cows
•Free of hormones
•Toxin-free
•Free of artificial sweeteners and sugar

Taken from this link: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/03/20/17-superfoods-cost-saving-nutrition-boosting-tips.aspx

Here's two really good ones. They have no additives so they have no flavor. The first one is 12 oz, the second one is 1 lb. Still, a little goes a long way with this stuff, so the prices (for the great quality) are actually pretty decent.
