I'm certain this would not be FF-legal. It is lactose--which is milk sugar. The whey protein we use in our smoothies is the PROTEIN component of the whey, while this sweet product is the lactose (sugar) component of whey.

My thought is that if most of the evil ends up in the fat, and the isolate filters out all the fat, do you still need the grass fed isolate that costs 3 times more? Or maybe I'm being cheap.

I think I may know why this is. If it is whey protein that you are consuming, the protein elicits an insulin response. Insulin in the absence of carbs/sugar could be resulting in low blood sugar, and thus causing your body to crave food/sugar to... (more)
