Saddy spot, you are right on. Just when you get the magic formula they don't sell it any more or some such thing. But this one has been around for over a decade to my knowledge and everyone I know, except hubby and I have not had a cold yet this year, knock on wood, and it's mid Feb....this time last year we both had pneumonia. Who knows, but like I say it works really well for me, and according to my friend lots of others.
I have one kind of whey protein I use in smoothies with no problem, but was trying a new one recently and...oh, it was terrible. I was a gas factory and so bloated. I will not be buying that one again. It took me about a week to figure out what it was causing the problem. My poor husband... So, I would agree, don't give up on it, just try a new one.

"Thank You" so much for that information. I will defintely look into it. I just love protein shakes but the pain and bloat that follows is just not worth it. I would be a very happy woman if I could find a protein powder that I can digest.
I am lactose intolerant, have IB and a sluggish thryoid. But....I have found an incredible whey product by AOR, this might be a long note but thought you might be interested. The firm is called Advanced series Whey. It is the closest thing to mother's milk that you can get and also supports immunity and anabolism. It has alphalactalbumin and lactoferrin enhanced whey with sialic acid. It can even be taken by children.....just to recap a little from the back of the bottle....Advanced Whey TM starts with a new high concentration cross flow microfiltered whey (not an ion exchange whey) to maximize protein content and minimize unnecessary carbohydrate and saturated fat on ultra high alpha lactobumin whey protein isolate, bringing the the alpha lactobumin content to 30% of total protein content a ratio reflecting what is found in human breast milk......allowing greater support for anabolic metabolism and is less allergenic then the beta lactolbumin which predominates in conventiaonal whey.
Before I started this one with my workouts which are very heavy, I used many different lactose whey powders, but they simply didn't digest properly, I was gassy, bloated, and you know what comes after that. With this product (no I'm not selling it) I have no problem at all. Better yet haven't had a cold or the flu either...knock on wood. This is high grade and is recommended by naturopathic doctors, as are all the supplements they make due to their being so readily bio available.
So again the company is AOR by GMP manufacturing. Totally clean, not even stevia, which I can't tolerate either. It has a light vanilla flavour, I mix it with 4 ounces of my own juiced fruits plus equal parts water and tsp of agave syrup.
Hope this wasn't TMI but for me it does the trick.
Good luck everyone.
p.s. only has 110 calories in the powder itself plus whatever you add.
Yes, although excellent for weight loss...it is indeed very hard to digest. I have tried many different kinds...the latest a gluten, wheat free one but apparentley it is still a whey powder. Because the protein powder works so well for my weight loss...I continue to seek out ones that is easier to digest. My ND has offered to order a whey free protein powder for me...Not sure what it is going to taste liket....but I will let you know as soon as I get it!
Although I usually eat clean and read every label...it appears I have to eat super clean...which probably means I have to give up my one cheat day...(not sure I am going to do this one though....because I believe I need one day).
Having IBS is defintely a challenge with weight loss...along with all my other medical issues... I now have to deal with a sluggish thyroid ..But I will figure it out...
I agree completely. Lots of healthy foods make me miserable...whole grain bread, anything with lots of insoluble fiber, dairy products, etc. I can handle small doses of whey protein, but if I eat it everyday I have problems. Another thing I have noticed with my IBS is that a food that has always been fine can all of a sudden be a trigger food. I will be fine for a long time, and then have a 2 week period that I am miserable. Usually it takes me that long to figure out what food it is that has started to bother me.
Last summer I started consuming whey protein as part of a healthy diet. I also started jogging. Every night I would try to run through the stomach pain, and would at times have to stop and use the restroom along my route. It was a miserable experience. I finally saw a doctor who told me that whey protein is very difficult to digest. I stopped consuming whey protein and amazingly the bloat and cramps went away when I worked out. No more pit stops. Some good foods are not good for everyone.
