Not the worst thing Ive had, and it works
Ive been drinking the banana and the coffee flavour, once or twice a day for a month. Im down about 7kg. These are much less sweet that other brands which suits me as I hate that overly sweet fake sugar taste. Having these with skim milk for one or two meals a day and I havent felt hungry much at all.

This product does not mix, full of lumps and tasted like no chocolate I've ever eaten not would eat again. Absolute muck and not worth a fraction of what I paid for it.

Love dairy but are lactose intolerant. This is the one
Looking for a weight loss shake and are lactose intolerant your choice is very limited. I have tried many non dairy and the texture and taste are undrinkable.
I read the reviews, took on the suggestions of other uses, studied the amount of lactose and decided to give it a go. Best decision I made.
I have just finished my first container of Madagascan Vanilla. On its own it does not have much taste and has a watered down milk consistancy. I add half a banana to thicken add vanilla, or salted caramel even chocolates essences with Almond milk and a sprinke of cinnamon. Put in a blender. Yumm. If your lactose intolerant and love dairy, this is affordable, helps with digestion, fills you up and pleasing to the pallette.

I have the chocolate and enjoyed the taste as it's not strong or overly sweet, it is not that thick so i have an apple with it as my breakfast. At my local chemist there are sample packets you can buy to try the flavors which is handy however the caramel was not there and i would really like to sample that before committing to a whole tub. Overall very happy

A great low sugar meal replacement
I love the classic coffee flavour, just like a morning coffee. I really like that Isowhey has hardly any sugar and low in carbs. Nothing artificial at all - sweetened with xylitol. And as someone with a gluten intolerance, Isowhey is gluten free :-) I use 2 serves per shake (which only comes to about 218 calories) and some raspberries. So yummy! And the Madagascan Vanilla is great as a base, and add flavours to. I'm using Isowhey to drop fat slowly.....

I am returning to use IsoWhey after initially being recommended to use by my wholistic GP 20 years ago. I don’t have results yet but just some tips after reading the negative reviews !
- the product is best mixed in a blender!
- Isowhey put out an on line Menu Booklet and Diet Plan. Read them! As those comments I read about being unpalatable we’re those who simply used water! I was always initially recommended to use skim milk. I am now using almond milk, coconut milk or water. Mix with a banana, LSA or Flaxmeal. I add berries or another fruit....

A great product that needs to be tweaked a little
This is a great product. I've only been using it for a little over 2 weeks, I've lost a couple of kilos and I'm feeling so much better. It does need some tweaking to be enjoyable though. First of all, it's awful mixed with water so you might want to give that a big miss. It needs to be mixed with milk and although I'm not a fan of unsweetened almond milk, it is (in my opinion) the best milk to use with Isowhey. As an added bonus almond milk is creamy and very low in calories. Secondly, using one of those plastic hand mixers is a waste of ti...me - it will give you thin, watery results. You're going to need a blender, but you don't need to spend a fortune on one. Something like the George Foreman Mix And Go will do the job nicely. Thirdly, adding some fruit, ice and other flavourings really improves the taste. Madagascan Vanilla is my personal favourite. It's delicious with frozen banana, ice cubes and some cinnamon, or some frozen mango chunks with a small splash of coconut essence. The Ivory Coast chocolate is nice with frozen banana and ice cubes, or just ice and a splash of coconut essence (it tastes a bit like a Bounty chocolate). Frozen banana or mango in the Strawberry Smoothie flavour is nice as is frozen banana and ice in the Banana Smoothie flavour. Really, it's up to the individual - just choose what fruit you like and whiz it all up. So if you're not a fan and you feel you've wasted your money on this product why not give these suggestions a go? I guarantee your shake will be creamy and delicious (and you might even like it!).

BEWARE Foreign Object inside Container! Poor Quality!!
I purchased the chocolate flavour from Chemist Warehouse Online, it took 1 week to finally arrive. (Slowest online purchase experience - that's another story). When it did arrive a large white chunk of plastic was inside the powder. I have no idea what it is!!!
Contacted both Chemistware House and IsoWhey...3 weeks on I am still stuck with my contaminated container - completely useless! A replacement still hasn't arrived, between the two companies they cannot work out decent customer service. I would have expected a refund and express shipped replacement for wasting my time.
Buy another brand like I did. Don't waste your time!

I look forward to this each morning, sometimes twice a day
Tried Banana and Vanilla. Both good but I always add fresh ingredients and play around with natural flavouring. Today I mixed one heaped scoop of vanilla powder, added a lady finger banana, a peeled and chopped pear, a quarter of a paw paw to 300ml of Almond coconut milk in the blender. After blending I added half teaspoon of cinnamon and gave it another few seconds blending, ( you can add a couple of ice cubes to blender if you wish) . Its delicious and full of good stuff and helps me avoid animal protein. Give it a try.

Strong chemical taste
I really wanted to use this as it didn't have added folate, like some others do. (My body cannot process the synthetic folate used in food manufacture - can't even buy a loaf of bread that's not an over-priced organic loaf).
Firstly it wouldn't mix, I had to get the stick mixer. It looked really thin.
It tasted so strongly of chemicals, that I didn't drink it until I read reviews on if that was normal. I suspect it's one of those things like the 'gene' for coriander to taste like soap, etc etc.
So I figured out that it was safe, as some others...experienced this. Then it was so thin, it was like having a glass of water. Not filling in the least, and almost nauseating in flavour. I threw in some rice bran and a couple of drops flavour essence, just to make it drinkable. I think I'll look for something else!

all good so far
Been on IsoWhey for about 8 weeks and lost around 6kgs, tried chocolate, strawberry, coffee and mango, all good, most times I have breakfast and lunch shakes and normal food for dinner. I have fruit or Carmen bars (10g protein) for afternoon munchies. I am excising moderately 5 times a week, I was not heavy to start with but wanted to tone up from too much gym bulk in upper body, I cannot complain of the product. I have milk or water to mix in a hand held plastic shaker, I reduce crap food and no alcohol and the product does what it says, but it requires the user to be disciplined as well.
Goal is 10kg so well on track.

Good results in short time
I have tried the chocolate and vanilla flavours. I found both a little on the artificial flavour side and not very filling so I improvised to make it go further. Add 1 tsp psyllium husks (it thickens it), 200ml coconut milk, 15 frozen blueberries and a couple of ice cubes. Totals 166 calories. The taste is ‘ok’ for both flavours but I think I ever so slightly prefer vanilla. Beware, I can’t take this product at night as it messes with my sleep but maybe that’s just me. At this stage I have 1 replacement meal per day, sometimes 2 if I had a bad day calorie wise the day before. My loss after 3.5 weeks is at 8.9kg which is a great result for me as I’m in my 50’s with a slight physical disability and limited exercise capability.

Stomach, chest pain and vomitting from a single dose
Bought at suggestion of Doctor and specialist to lose weight BUT How the hell can they sell this stuff, one single carefully measured dose gave me terrible stomach pain not too far removed from stomach ulcer pain my chest got terribly tight and uncomfortable actually thought I was having heart issues, I was extremely nauseas and even my lip was trembling as if I was about to be sick. I tried one dose the next day with the same effect, because the Docs had encouraged me to buy this stuff I tried a third time a few days later with the same effect. Wouldn't wish this stuff on my worst enemy. The taste is crap too so no compensation for the pain & suffering.
HOW ON EARTH CAN THEY SELL THIS STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!
Love the strawberry
Love the strawberry ( not so fussed with the choc as the flavour isn’t very strong )
Leaves me full and energised for my workouts. Highly recommend and was easy to purchase online

Questions & Answers
Hi, I am trying to lose weight with the Grass Fed Isowhey Weight Management Smoothie with milk and I add a banana or apple to the drink for breakfast, but I am gaining weight, I eat little food but have seemed to have put on 2kg, does this mean its not for me to lose weight. I am feeling as if I should find something else, has anyone else had weight gain and not weight loss. I have been having this for 2 months each morning.
You need to consume less calories then you are burning, so I would suggest cutting out the banana and apple as this does count towards calories.
You could try having the shake twice a day, otherwise you could give our try VLCD range a try which is 3 shakes a day.
Let me know how it goes and do speak to a specialist about this if you do not see results.
Thankyou, I will do as you have suggested and see if that helps me, I am currently 67KG and wish to get to 59- 60 KG, I have no bloating now since using Isowhey which has been a great feeling, however I want to lose weight not put on muscle mass. I was taking the Aldi weight loss drinks but there is way too much sugar in one packet, thats why I changed to Isowhey as the reviews were good.. I will keep trying as I have lots of tubs in my cupboard. Thanks again, have a great week, always stay safe. :)
There was no scoop in the isowhey (both containers) I bought. Could you tell me how many tbsp I should be taking to lose weight
