    I use their Impact Whey Isolate. It tastes like shit but is nice apart from that (Vanilla flavor). I loved the ON Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein taste but since I prefer to get all my supplements at the same time and place...

    The reason they are so cheap is because they purchase the protein and other supplements from mass manufacturers in China using Alibaba/Aliexpress. Purchasing from these suppliers is ultra cheap especially when you ship by boat it cuts your costs by more than half so then they take these powders and repackage them with a nice design to make it look fancy and all that and sell it on their page. I work with alibaba all the time because of my job so that's why I know about this.

    Cost cutting aside, I'm guessing maybe the quality of protein from China isn't the greatest?

    What would "quality mean" in this case?

    Could mean a few different things
    - I would imagine a healthier cow would produce better milk, leading to a better protein powder. For example, a pasture raised cow allowed to feed on it's natural diet of grass as opposed to cows raised in factory farms and fed mostly grains.
    - Some companies use lower temperatures to process the whey to try and preserve the immunoglobulins, etc. as opposed to other companies who use spray drying at much higher temperatures.
    - Some sell protein with whey being the only ingredient whereas other brands may have unnecessary additives and fillers.

    I'd agree with most of that. However what better means for the protein is hard to say.

    The overwhelming benefit of whey is that it's a source of protein covering the main amino acids. In that respect the test certificates MP have show it's the same as any other whey which makes sense. They also claim not to add fillers or animo acid bulking tactics. So in terms of the main function we want it for, my guess is that it's as good as any other at any practical level.

    If people want to get organic, grass fed etc then they'd need to look for other brands but I'd be willing to bet that they won't get bigger muscles from that decision.

    I agree on that. Same with whey concentrate vs. whey isolate, the difference is not enough for one to cause better muscle growth. If anything, one would go for the grass fed for the health benefits rather than any muscle building benefits.

    They all have Whey Protein Concentrate (Milk) (96%), Emulsifier (Soy Lecithin), Flavoring, Sweetener (Sucralose) both lecithin and Sucralose (splenda) have side effects. Some of there flavored protein add more chemicals
