Better available: It is ok but I think you can do much better. My concerns: the main ingredients are soy and milk protein. Almost all soy these days is gmo unless it is organic & there is evidence this is unsafe. Milk is mostly from cows fed gmo corn & soy unless organic. Amway does not use organic sources. A much better protein powder is whey cool from grass-fed cows. Also take a good multivitamin. See comment:. ...Read more
Protein substitute: It is advertised as a replacement for meat/dairy sources of protein. It has no advantage over normal foods and costs much more. No sense wasting your money. Use lean meats and nonfat milk instead. If you wish to go vegetarian, then you will need to make sure that you have a guide so that you know what you are doing. The foods have to provide complementary proteins. Lact-ovo vegetarianism is best. ...Read more
