Jay Robb Protein Powder Review

Last month, I reviewed Jay Robb's JayBar here.  Now I'm reviewing his protein powders, which I was sent along with the bars to review.  Jay Robb offers both whey protein isolate and egg white protein powders.  Here are some facts about Jay Robb whey protein isolate:

  • From Grass Fed Cows Not Treated With rBGH (Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone)
  • Now with 25 Grams Protein Per Serving!
  • Mixes with a blender or Shaker Bottle
  • No Fat, No Cholesterol
  • No Sugar
  • No Aspartame
  • No Artificial Sweeteners or Colors
  • Made With Stevia
  • No Casein
  • No MSG
  • No Gluten
More information on Jay Robb's protein powders can be found on his site here.

I was sent the following flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Pina Colada, Tropical Dreamsicle (the last two flavors are only available in whey protein isolate).

Vanilla (whey): 9.5 of 10. Great vanilla flavor.  It mixed in with milk quite nicely and was great with oatmeal (as seen above).

Vanilla (egg white): 9 of 10.  Very nice taste again, though it seemed like this powder was harder to stir in.

Strawberry (whey): 9.5 of 10. Smooth, strong flavor that blended well and was quite foamy!  I appreciated that it wasn't pink because I hate artificial colors.

Strawberry (egg white): 9 of 10. A stronger strawberry flavor, but it didn't blend as well.

Chocolate (whey): 10 of 10. Wonderful chocolate flavor.  It mixed up quite well in my blender and came out nice and foamy :-).

Chocolate (egg white): 8.5 of 10. The chocolate flavor wasn't as strong as I would have liked and it didn't blend as well.

Tropical Dreamsicle (whey): 9.5 of 10. Very nice tropical flavor with orange and some other tropical fruits thrown in.  It was unique, but not overwhelmingly so.

Pina Colada (whey): 10 of 10. I mixed it with milk, and it tasted just like I'd imagine a pina colada would taste like!  Delicious!

Overall, I enjoyed the whey protein isolate flavors better.  They were easier to mix into liquids and didn't have clumps like the egg white protein powder sometimes had.

Look at this awesome tank top I was sent with my samples!!  I love it!  Thank you Jay Robb :-).

I won't be able to blog until next week now because I have a lot of class work and projects.  I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend though! 

If you're looking for a smile, check this out:



  1. Good review and cool 'T'. Just a FYI: I noticed that the egg white protein powder contains xylitol. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol used as a natural sweetener. While it is safe in humans when used in moderation, it is highly toxic to dogs! It can cause dangerously low blood sugar levels, liver problems and blood clotting issues. I wanted to share this since people often share their food/drinks with their pets. So, remember to keep any products with xylitol on the ingredient list (some toothpastes, sugarless gums, Jay Robb's egg white protein powder, etc.....) safely out of the reach of your 'best friend'!!

  2. I have been searching for this information and finally found it. Thanks!


Thanks for commenting! I really appreciate it :-).
