    Not really impressed with Hammer whey

    I tried Hammer whey powder today, I was expecting a really solid drink that would fill me up but was pretty disappointed. Not only did the vanilla taste absolutely disgusting (I tried the chai also, it was so bad I had to throw it out!). Outside of not giving me as much gas, I found it to be no superior to Designer brand whey. What whey proteins do you guys like and why? What makes a whey superior to another.

    I like ON and IsoFlex. Isoflex is more expensive but slightly better overall. I like stuff high in protein (obviously), good (or at least non-offensive) tasting, and easy to mix.

    I just picked up GNC 100% Whey protein, I took this stuff back in the early 2000's. I was more of a lifter back then but it works.

    Not strictly on topic I realize, but I use a vegetable protein powder (from MLO), and take it in the form of a smoothie. The mix I've come up with is

    1 cup soy milk
    1 banana
    1 cup blueberries
    2 Tbsp protein powder
    1 Tbsp flaxseed oil

    It's not whey, but it's a shot of complete protein, and goes down well from my point of view.

    I like Designer Whey or any whey protein isolate.

    Rare is the workout where I don't have whey/honey afterwards...
