Much has been made of Biotest’s Grow! Whey, but since they cranked up the price (per serving…they actually dropped to 2 lb jugs), I am thinking I may be forced to look elsewhere.
Now I do think that they seem to have a solid product and it seems to blend especially well. It has also been claimed by some that other companies have “cheap” whey that utilizes “fillers”. I’m not sure what that means exactly, but I’m not sure they could get away with cutting their product if that is the implication.
But take Optimum Nutrition’s (a popular brand) 10 lbs bag. It sells for $83.69 including S&H. Biotest, on the other hand, would charge $105 (for five jugs) with free shipping.
That’s almost a $20 difference. I want to support Biotest, but I find it hard to justify spending over $20 extra on a product that is identical.
