The whey I've been using for months is usually light and airy (flour like), mixes easily, and has always tasted the same.
In the last tub the powder was a bit more coarse (table salt like), didn't mix quite as well, and tasted a little different, but it didn't taste so off you'd assume the stuff was bad if you'd never had the previous tubs.
Does whey powder vary slightly in consistency from batch to batch or is this a bad batch?
I always buy the same cheddar cheese and the color varies slightly ever time. Does whey powder also have the same sort of variation?
If it's bad would you blame the company (using cheaper ingredients) or the shipper (sat in a hot truck too long)?
If I switch brands (current brand is Ultimate Nutrition) does anyone have a favorite micro/cold filtered whey protein isolate?
The biggest reason McDonald's became so popular (initially, in the 50s) wasn't because it's food products were designed by food scientists to be highly addictive: the food was the same anywhere you got it. It didn't matter what state, time of day, who heated it, or otherwise -- the food was designed to have exactly the same experience every time you ate it.
Regularity of quality -- regardless of it not being high quality -- was an exceptionally appealing reason for people to return time after time to get their fast food fix.
The more processed the product, the more likely it will be to be the exact same, regardless if the source material changed. Your whey protein probably should look the same every time -- I'd wager they changed the processing method and you noticed; they are likely getting whey from all different sources all the time.
If your whey is bad, I would probably blame the shipper or store where you got it. Heat or other exposure can alter it's texture.
For cheeses, I would hope each cheese wheel, log, or bar has different characteristics than the last. What makes cheese cheese is how it's processed -- non-uniform characteristics are usually signs of a more natural or even hand-made cheese.
I would hold off judgment until the same problem arises on a different order. Any number of things could have happened, and you really have no way of knowing where the issue arose. Do they have a customer satisfaction number? Maybe they will be willing to exchange the container for a new one, since you have questions about its safety.
