What is Sweet Dairy Whey and Can I Use it as a Whey Protein Supplement?

by EricTEricT 27 Jun 2013 20:51

Sweet Whey Powder

There are some companies that sell "Sweet Dairy Whey Powder" in bulk to consumers. This is very cheap, by the pound, compared to the typical whey protein supplement powders most strength training or bodybuilding trainees buy, and the price of whey protein has gone way up in the last year or so. The price of sweet dairy whey powder ranges from 3 to 4 bucks a pound, but it's possible to get it as low as one dollar a pound if you buy in bulk. These powders are not flavored, and, despite the word sweet, are not sweetened.

Misconceptions About Nutrition Information Versus Alternative Medicine

Food Nutrients and Toxic Plant Compounds, All from the Same Food

In my post Homeopathy Is Not a Drug and Other Babbles I had quite a rant, albeit a very informative one, about some idiotic things a article said about homeopathy and about homeopathy quackery in general. If you read that you will be more in flow with what is to follow. Cuz I'm not done!

Much of that post concerned chemicals. The food faddist or the homeopathic zealot, when he hears the word chemical, cries "POISON!" Yet, chemicals are what our food is made of and the term toxic chemical, taken by itself, is meaningless.

Natural and Processed Food, Nutritionism and Pollanisms

by EricTEricT 29 Mar 2011 19:59

There has been a lot of support for Michal Pollan's books for the last few years (he was on Colbert ) and his books "In Defense of Food" as well as his earlier book "The Omnivore's Dilemma" are both very popular. I even saw Mike Boyle singing the praises of Pollan while imagining he knew more about nutrition than "nutritionists" by virtue of having read Pollan's books. Even though, strictly speaking, Pollan is not a nutritionist but a journalist. But hey, I've also seen Mike Boyle and others sing the praises of Mercola, so go figure. I would hesitate to get my nutrition information from a strength coach or a journalist. That is not to say that I would not take their advice, but only that I would hesitate to consider that advice as seriously as I would consider the advice of someone who is a nutrition specialist.
