Overview: Whey proteins amino acid profile is superior to any other form of ingestible protein. This means that whey has the optimal proportion of amino acids for building and repairing muscle with high levels of glutamine, leucine and other BCAA’s. This makes whey exceptionally convenient for the athlete in only having to consume a fraction of whey compared to other quality protein sources such as meat, fish, eggs and nuts. However, all whey protein is not created equal. Most commercial whey supplements are filled with sweeteners (artificial and natural), flavorings, colorings, and other potentially harmful additives that increase cost without adding benefit. Additionally, whey is often heavily processed with acids and heat, especially whey isolates, which greatly reduces the biological value inherent to whey. This reduces whey’s muscle building capacity, immune boosting qualities and increases acidity. A constant theme at Mike’s Mix is to keep our products simple, natural, clean of contaminants and effective.
The 2 lb bag has 32 servings (1 scoop = 28 grams)
*No artificial sweeteners, preservatives, flavorings, etc.
*Minimally processed to maintain biological activity and reduces contamination.
*At 81% protein you found find a more pure form of whey concentrate on the market.
*Free from dangerous levels of heavy metals. Every batch of our protein is tested for heavy metals and other containments. If you want to see the certificate of analysis for your batch, just ask.
*With only trace amounts of lactose per serving most lactose intolerant individuals can ingest Mike’s Mix Whey Protein with no ill effects.
*Naturally gluten free and kosher.
Uses: Add to shakes, smoothies, or other drinks, blend for best consistency. Add to food such as cereals, yogurts, or use for baking. See our comprehensive list of smoothie recipes. Protein should be kept in a cool, dry location. Under these conditions, Mike’s Mix Protein will last for one year or more.
Taste: It’s a testimony to the quality of our protein that we don’t need to mask its subtle yet pleasant flavor. The flavor tastes naturally like milk cream. However, because no flavoring or sweeteners are added, our protein is not intended to be consumed as a stand alone protein shake with water or milk.
Very Versatile Review by John O
I'm am not normally a big user of Whey protein. All my past experience with other brands was horrible! Basically I could never get past the taste or smell, and didn't care for the clumpy consistency I would end up with in everything I tried to use it in... Then I tried Mike's Mix Whey Protein. Straight out of the bag, it has a very mild taste and smell. I found it to be very fine, and mixed fast and easy in just plain water. Because it so easy to use, I often find myself adding it to meals like oatmeal, soups, and spaghetti. I even added it chili to get a little extra protein kick.
Further, I often take a scoop and mix it in lukewarm water just before bed during heavy training periods to aid in recovery. It totally dissolves and goes down easy. Its a very versatile product. (Posted on 2/16/15)

Over the past 50 years, an extraordinary amount of research has focused on sports nutrition. Unfortunately, “common knowledge” can be heavily influenced by supplement marketing that is often unsupported or even contradictory to the research. At Mike’s Mix, our goal is to bridge that gap between common knowledge and research. All functional ingredients have studies to support their safety and effectiveness. The following are links directly to the peer reviewed research used to formulate this product. If there is research to support omission of an ingredient that our competition may use, we have also included those links.
