Cheap Whey Protein

This question might have been asked before but can poor quality whey cause acne? I ask because I usually take Grow, but I ran out so for a couple of weeks I have been taking a replacement from COSTCO and have broken out nothing to the extreme but I thought it was weird.

If it matters the ingredients are:

Whey protein blend(whey protein concentrate(milk), whey protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate, natural and artificial flavors, acesulfame ptassium.

could be but what do I know

if whey protein is milk protein, would people who get acne from a lot of dairy not get acne flare ups with whey supps.?

Maybe its the other stuff in it? Like the cheap colorants & preservatives?

Try buying just whey.

I don’t know brands. But I went to my local nutrition store and they had buckets of whey in about 5kg containers.

Checked it out and its 100% pure whey. No coloring, no flavouring. Its almost completely tasteless.

Not only that but for me it comes out cheaper/unit weight than the Costco Brand.

Are you drinking that chocolate shit labelled “European Whey” that’s not even made in Europe?
