Thanks for the reply :)I emailed the company and these are the ingredients :INGREDIENTS: Whey Protein Isolate , Whey Protein Concentrate , Micellar Casein , MCT Oil , Prebiotic ( Oligosaccharides ) , Natural Identical flavouring , Dutch Chocolate Powder ( Chocolate flavour only ) Beetroot Powder ( Strawberry Flavour only ) , Stabiliser ( Citric Acid ) , Contains Natural Sweeteners Sucrolose , DextroseThey also told me that they have had many people who suffer with digestive problems use this product and found it to be very gentle with them? They on the other hand listed 5 other products on there site that I should stay away from as they are not gentle on the digestive system? Seem to be honest about it all?I suppose only way to tell is to try it!!
I don't think whey is a problem (although no thing is universally safe). I'd be more concerned about other things they put in there.Prebiotic oligosaccharides feed bacteria in the colon.Ideally they feed the probiotic bacteria, but they can feed other bacteria, which may increase your gas.K.

Just thought I'd pass on this little gem of knowledge that I learned today, but whey protein in "normal" stores is not regulated well - it can contain anywhere from 20-80% pure protein, which is the good stuff you need. Stores like Target and Wal-Mart usually have products with 29%, which has driven the standard down from its original spot at 40% pure protein. Buying at a vitamin/nutrition shop can help guarantee you're getting really good stuff. Hope that helps - I just started taking whey protein today
Hey! I actually use a protein powder by BIOCHEM sports called 100% whey protein. It is fat free and lactose free and doesn't bother me at all. I looked up a lot of info about protein drinks when I was looking for one and found out that Whey protein ISOLATE will not bother those with lactose intolerance while whey protein CONCENTRATE can. The one I bought you can get from Whole Foods Market and it comes in vanilla, chocolate, caramel and regular. The one you mentioned also said it had sucralose (aka splenda). I cannot tolerate this artificial sweetener but some people can. good luck!Meagan
