Jay Robb Whey Protein Powder Review

I like the rest of a long line of people on both sides of the family, have diabetes. I have spent all my adult years HUNGRY. I’ve decided on a lifestyle change that will help me live longer, do more, and take less medication. I simply have to lose weight because of various health factor. I never kept the pounds off long so life was a constant calorie-counting experience. I am having lap-band surgery in the near future.

Meanwhile to prepare myself for the actual procedure, I am on a mostly liquid diet with lots of protein. Of course my current diet is medically supervised. I even have a nutritionist. I get four protein meal replacements daily. Yesterday I tried the Jay Robb Whey Protein Powder to make meal replacement shakes for the first time. Let me tell you what I think about the product.

I decided to experiment using a shaker, a hand mixer, a blender, and a fork–each in a different trial. I tried both water and skim milk to test palatability as well. Two scoops of the powder went into the liquid. Five varieties are available–chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, pina colata, and tropical dream sickle. I tried all except the last. That’s for this evening.

Every shake was delicious. Every shake was different. I was sure to use a cold liquid, the colder the better it turned out although I did use warm water (under 130o) once. ?The amount of liquid I used (either four, six, or eight ounces) made the drinks range from slushy, to liquidy, to thick.

With the pina colata, I used a blender, four ounces of water, and a few ice cubes. The result was similar to a watery slushy. With the record heat we were having locally, I enjoyed sipping it down. I will experiment further to get an icier consistency.

With the vanilla, I used a hand mixer, four ounces of milk, then set the blend back into the refrigerator for later. I really liked that one when I had it later. It was rich and creamy similar to a milk shake. The only problem was I wished there was more.

With the strawberry, I used a shaker and four ounces of chilled water straight from the refrigerator. It went down smoothly and reminded me of milk.

With the chocolate, I used a fork and 6 ounces of warm water, a nice alternative when the temperature drops. What I got tasted like cocoa. I am going to try using decaffeinated coffee next time around.

Whey Protein is protein isolate, natural flavoring, xanthum gum, lecithin, and stevia. 30 grams of it can be mixed into water, milk, juice, or yogurt to supply 110 calories, 1 gram of carbohydrates, and 25 grams of protein per serving. Single serving packs are available at $2.99 each at most local health stores. It can also be ordered online from Jay Robb’s website or Amazon.com.

Besides the whey formula, the Jay Robb line also includes egg and rice formulas for those with specific dietary needs.

  1. I’m happy I came across your site on bing. Thanks for the sensible critique. My wife and i were just getting ready to do some research relating to this. I will be thrilled to see these excellent information currently being shared freely out there.

  3. Deb,

    I bought a small hand held one from Braun years and years ago (I think with a mini-chopper).  It works great and is portable if I am on the go.  Other companies make similar ones as well.


  4. I bought two 12 oz. containers of the vanilla for my elderly father suffering with COPD and a broken hip. Since his appetite is poor, we thought this would be a good idea. It has been wonderful! I have been making smoothies for him, mixing a scoop of powder with fruit juice and some fresh fruit. I usually put it in a mason jar and put the blender bottom on it to get a good mix. With these cool mornings in the mountains I have been mixing it up with cocoa powder, a bit of honey or agave nectar and water, then adding hot water to it for a hot cocoa protein drink. Mixed with his morning coffee, it’s extra special. I have not had good luck getting it smooth though unless I use the blender. I have tried a whisk and a fork, but still get some unappetizing lumps. The flavor is excellent.

  5. I can’t believe you drove from Jersey all the way out to Utah. I live in Utah, and can barely stand the drive to California! It’s good to know how these powders taste. Sometimes they are lumpy and chalky, and you can’t get it down. Good luck.
