* I have estrogen receptor positive breast cancer and cannot have soy products. The phytoestrogens produced from the metabolism of soy stimulates the growth of tumor cells. I looked everywhere for soy free whey because I need more protein in my diet. Every protein product I looked at had soy lecithin in it until I looked online and found this site. I finished my first canister of powdered whey yesterday and loved it! I got the chocolate flavor. I just ordered more and highly recommend this product.
* Within the last year I have been trying to lower my body fat by exercising and watching what I eat. After seeing several articles and studies that talk about the effects of soy on men (especially middle aged guys like me) I started looking to reduce my soy intake. I was shocked when it became very difficult to find a soy less protein supplement. I ordered this stuff to give it a try. I only gave it a 4 because of the flavor being very light and not very chocolatey. Other than that this stuff is great. And in all honesty, they probably don't put a lot of flavoring in it to keep out all of "junk" that comes with the flavoring. I highly recommend the product.

* I'm on here to re-order, I liked it - I was thrilled when a friend sent me the link for this soy-free option, I wish it had stevia instead of sucralose... but I cant have it all, can I? My favorite wake up and go breakfast is my "Mounds latte" I use a mason jar and put a scoop of the chocolate powder in the bottom of it, add a cup of coconut milk and then brew a strong cup of coffee from my k-cup machine into that mason jar, put on the lid, shake and go with a warm protein filled latte! I just re-ordered the vanilla too along with my chocolate cause I want to add the vanilla to a cup of coconut milk with a little pineapple juice to shake for a "pinacolada" drink, but also may be great for post run drink too with coconut water and some pineapple juice + plain yogurt or milk. Get creative with your recipes folks and you will love eating FOR your health!
