Isopure is getting too expensive for my friend,so he wants to switch to a cheaper brand.He said he can get 40lbs Whey for $110 plus $20 shipping.I told him to stick with quality,but what the hell do i know.Should he go with cheaper or not? thanks
Daveb_19 said:my protien of choice is optimum's 100% whey, its cheap avail in bulk, i pay 48.00 for 10lb bag, its not bullshit concentrate which hopefully soon will be obsolete.. its CFM ion exchanged, around 2 carbs, 1.5 fat, 22 protien a serving...
Daveb_19 said:well for me I cannot afford to buy in bulk, and 10lbs a bag is basically as cheap it gets in stores around here, so you were saying its all pretty much the same, optimum is still the cheapest around here in stores.

I hate seeing people getting ripped off like this.
These are facts:
There is only one company in the world that has the WORLD rights to manufacture and distribute whey. Every single supplement manufacturer has to buy from them. There is no way around it. Because this company has the world rights, their discounts are next to nothing. Even in LARGE quantities, as a supplement company you cannot buy from them real pure whey isolate for $4.80/lb! Never mind this company retailing it for that much! Sure you can buy a blend of inferior whey's, but not undenatured whey isolate.
I wish that the supplement industry be regulated so all these sharlatans would stop ripping people off.
There's a different reason rather than greed why some companies charge more for their products compared to other companies, although the product is seemingly the same.
This reminds me of this company I know that sells more creatine each month than it manufacturers... Think about it!
Why would you want Concentrate to be obsolete? Doesn't it have a higher biological value than red meat,chicken,and eggs? My friend only takes 150g of Isopure/day,i couldn't even imagine what your protein budgets looks like.Don't alot of you take like 400-500g/day?Daveb_19 said:my protien of choice is optimum's 100% whey, its cheap avail in bulk, i pay 48.00 for 10lb bag, its not bullshit concentrate which hopefully soon will be obsolete.. its CFM ion exchanged, around 2 carbs, 1.5 fat, 22 protien a serving...
If you know that's what your getting,than that's real good for isolate,but i see now that Isolate isn't the best.CFM is better than Ion exchange,Hydrolyzed better than Isolate and Ultra Hydro better than regular.I want the best,i don't care how much it is.G.E.R.M said:ok this isnt gonna be a popular statement so.....
i buy 96% pure whey isolate with the same stats as the synthpure and pay $6/lb. + $24 for delivery.... on a 50lb order.
so that comes to 6.48/lb with delivery included..
2lbs synthpure = 45
2lbs for me = 12.96
packaging and marketing is expensive.
