    I believe they almost are same. Look for protein gr per its scoop and pay attention fat carb facts.

    Protein World are really nice, I use the slenderblend banana and strawberry flavours and they're genuinely nice and don't taste processed at all like some do!

    I've switched around between a few different brands. Currently I have the 11 lb bag of Impact Whey strawberry cream from MyProtein.com. Heck of a deal, it was $60 shipped for 11 pounds. So far I like it and haven't been able to tell the difference between the higher priced proteins. Previous brands I have used are: EAS, Body Fortress, Syntha-6, ON.

    I love me some Syntha-6. I've used Gold Standard before, but I like BSN's flavors better.

    Avoid Wal-Mart protein. It's ALL crap.

    The brand with the HIGHEST protein, based on tests is Dymatize ISO-100. It tastes amazing too.

    Other good brands are Cellucor, Myofusion, Quest Protein powder (little pricey though, but good).

    A lot of people also say Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard or ON Gold. I hate it due to the flavors and how it's so watery no matter what you do to it.

    I've used lots of them. Body Fortress, Six Star, EAS Whey, Dymatize, pretty much anything that hasn't been exorbitant with cost. Pretty much just boils down to what taste you like the best, at what value, and sometimes which ones just work with your body better. To me, they're mostly interchangeable, but I think my favorite so far are the Dymatize - I have constantly run across good deals at muscleandstrength.com - last purchase of Dymatize netted me 16lbs of the stuff for about $90.

    I've used Cellucor and Epiq. Both taste very good. Epiq is way over priced. Cellucor molten chocolate, mint chocolate chip and red velvet are pretty good flavors.

    I always look for protein powder that doesn't have artificial sweeteners in it. It makes it difficult to buy locally but amazon always has something

    What are you looking for? Weight loss? Gain? Mass? There are different types of protein for each.

    I like EAS personally. Tastes almost like chocolate milk, when you actually use milk that is.

    The only difference is the amount of calories.

    Find a protein you like and call it a day. I like muscle milk and EAS. Pure protein wasn't too bad (target brand), and Body Fortress was ok (Walmart)

    I have used several right now I am using "Arnold" Iron Whey...it's ok. The only one I cannot recommend is the Body fortress isolate. Something in it made me dizzy and nauseous

    A few years ago, Consumer Reports did a summary report on protein shakes. What they found was most had garbage and bad stuff in them, like heavy metals. The report is rather old, I'd check ConsumerLab also. The brand with the least amount of "bad stuff" is Optimum Nutrition. No, I do not work for the company :)

    Has anyone found one that has no artificial sweeteners and has almost no flavor (to put in a blast without changing it's natural flavor)?

    +1. EAS chocolate is my favorite so far, I think it's very good. It's fantastic mixed with vanilla almond milk.

    I use Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard. Double Rich Chocolate with low fat milk tastes just like chocolate milk. Mixes well and no chunks or chalky flavor.
