    Atw

    ok i was wondering some personal thoughts on this. In your opinion, is it worth spending double the amount of money to get ATW isolate instead of ATW blend??? the diff is like 1g carb, and 1.5g fat.... those number worth double in your opinion?

    yea

    i just got 10lbs of the blend, couldn't justify spending the extra $32 for the same amount of protein just to have 2g lactose taken out! i think my body can deal with that much in a pro/fat meal...

    Where you are getting this "double the price" idea from, I've no idea, as the isolate is not double the cost of the concentrate.

    price

    Strawberry Isolate
    2 lbs Price: $13.99
    5 lbs Price: $32.95
    10 lbs Price: $64.95


    Strawberry Blend
    2 lbs Price: $9.99
    5 lbs Price: $19.99
    10 lbs Price: $37.99


    sorry swole, almost double!!!
    ten pounds of blend costs $5 more than 5 pounds of isolate, looks pretty close to me!

    That's because you are comparing the cost of a 10 lb. bucket to a 5 lb. one.

    Compare the 5 lb. isolate w/the 5 lb. concentrate............SEE? Of course you get a break when you purchase more of a product........that's w/literally any product.

    It's 1/3 more expensive, not double. ($19.99 vs. $32.95)

    Not close to double.

    ok ok

    i see where your going. initially i was going to compare the 2 10lb containers, but i thought the 5 and 10lb comparison was more in my favor....you caught on to me. dammit ....well you get my point anyway, worth more for isolate is my basic question, as there isn't too much difference! their blend is a very good product as well as the isolate!

    No worries bro, I believe everyone knows what you mean.

    Yes, the concentrate is a great product too. The ONLY difference between the concentrate and the isolate, is the amount of carbs/fat in the product. The protein quality is EXACTLY the same, so you are good to go there.

    I like the isolate just because I like see no carbs/fat in my protein.

    Is there a taste difference between isolate and concentrate?

    i think in general isolates dissolve more readily in water, making the consistency and IMO the taste better...

    swole...i think you are just a perfectionist, and its not that the 2g lactose would really **** up a pro/fat meal, i'm just tryin to get my best bang for the buck,,,, i just dropped $70 on worthless nitro-tech bars as you already know, so my protein expenditure this month is pretty god ****ed high!!

    Eh..... Isolate DEFINITELY does not taste better than concentrate. But I too use Isolate as I like no fats/carbs in my protein shakes either.

    ATW bloated me to the size of a pregnant woman. I'm not sure what it is, but I got MAD bloated. IT's never been that bad. Constipated too. I might just have a bad reaction to it.
