    Someone please clear this up for me: What's the point of paying extra for whey isolate if you're just going to add half-and-half or Fairlife to it? Correct me if I'm wrong, but the whey concentrate retains the mild sugars and the amino acid content overall is just slightly different. Aren't you just adding back what you paid extra to have removed? I'm lactose intolerant and find that I can crush one 8 cent lactase tablet and mix it in with a pound of whey concentrate and have no problems with digestion.

    Also, Myprotein runs 45-50% off sales all the time. If someone can find a better deal than that, do tell.

    This is becoming frustrating. You add whey protein to the milk to INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF PROTEIN IN THE MILK.

    Whey protein isolate has almost no lactose whatsoever. For that matter, neither does Fairlife.

    Mine curdled and became pretty smelly, dry, and lumpy. Couldnít eat it. Oatmeal was probably too hot.

    Yes, whey protein isolate has no lactose. The question is why spend 40% more on isolate over concentrate if you're mixing it with half-and-half, milk, or Fairlife? Fairlife has lactase enzyme added to it. I experimented and can confirm that the added lactase is enough to break down the lactose in whey concentrate mixed with it.

    I think it's the same thing as scalded mild. If it gets too hot, the proteins denature and bind together in complex ways. I sometimes like to make hot chocolate with whey protein. If you don't get the water too hot, it partially scalds and has a nice malty flavor you don't get if it's mixed cold.

    Because it doesn't taste good.

    A man of refined taste. I too love the chocate peanut butter. I even add a spoonful of actual peanut butter sometimes if I make it in the blender.
