Best Protein for the money?

Hey guys. Looking for opinions on the best protein for the money. I only need to take in between 120-150 grams of protein per day so I was wondering whats a good deal in terms of protein and what the cheapest places to get supplements are. I've looked into isopure but its jsut so expensive, looking for something a little cheaper becuase I'm definitely not made of money. Also, this protein needs to be low-fat as I'm probably going to be starting a fatburning stack and I need as little fat coming in as possible. thx

    If your willing to spend $30 dollars on a protien which will be the best damn protien taste in your life, then i would go with nectar protien
     
    go to ww.si03.com  ( the 03 part are numbers zero and three)
     
    click on store, and scroll down to the nectar protien section, and you will see what type of flavors they have.  I have never tasted protien like nectar protien.  All those other protiens out there with generic flavors like "strawbery" "vanilla" "choclate" totally pale in comparison to the taste of nectar protien.  Before you buy it, you can email them and request sample flavor packets for all of their flavors, and they can mail it to you.
    Keep in mind that is just whey protien.
     
    I personally think that you will also need CASIEN protien, which is a slow absorbing protien.  It takes up to 7 hours to digest all of casien protien, and that is a perfect protien supplement for night time to continue to help you build muscle.  Unfortunatley, i am not aware of any casien protien that tastes that great, so i just bought the choclate flavor one.
     
    Go to your local supplement discount stores (EXCEPT GNC, CAUSE I PERSONALLY THINK GNC SUCKS) to see if they have such products

    On 100% Whey is pretty much the standard on the board If your looking for really good protien for cheap. I'm taking muscle milk right now but I'm gonna switch back to ON 100% Whey because I'm spending to much on the muscle milk. It's pretty much the best for the money, there won't be much dispute over that here.

    I'm gonna agree with him on the on 100% whey.  Pretty cheap, and a lotta servings.  I mix one scoop of that with one scoop muscle milk.  Helps the muscle milk last longer and tastes great.

    I have done alot of pricing research and ON Whey has one of the two best prices I have found. 
     
    I am alergic to artificial flavors and so most proteins are out for me anyway.
     
    5 pounder of ON for around $30 shipped seems to be a favorite..I have not used it yet, but will be buying soon as my supply is running low...then I'll know how it is compared to others.

    Dang Buffwannabe  That Nektar is all artificial colors and flavours too!!
    Too bad for me.

    Goldenfrog you'll have to tell me what you think.  I had a bad egg protein year, sure it was my fault cause I was so new to everything...and I would over mix it and use too much...uck..so I have had a bad prejudice!
    This is Free of c**p!  Wow!

    There's a whey protein sold at Sam's Club that's around 18 bucks for a 5lbs jug. 103 servings with 16 grams of protein per serving. it's called Cytosport 100% whey protein. don't know if it stacks up to ON whey's protein but it'd be 206 servings if you bought two jugs for $32 total

    Lets do the math
    ON
    72 servings x 22g protein=1584g protein for $30
     
    Sams
    103 servings x16g protein=1648g protein for $20
     
    Sams wins the price comparison.
     
    So it all depends what else is in there...flavorings, colorings, etc. and on the fat and carbs.
    For instance ON has  No Aspartame and No Artificial Colors, Flavors or Sweeteners.
     
    Then lets look at quality...and since most tested whey proteins passed independent lab tests for protein quality (testing for total calories, carbohydrates, sugars, protein, fat, sodium and cholesterol)-(although ON and Designer whey under-report the amount of cholesterol found in their product, and a few others have more sodium than reported...)
     
    So then it comes down to how well it works for you and how you like it.
     
    If the contents were ok I would go with it.

    go to supplementdirect and you can buy 11lbs of whey concentrate, 26g protein per serving for about $38, best price out there. It may seem like it might not work because its so cheep, but I have baught all my supps from that site and I've currently gained 10lbs in the first 3.5 weeks of my bulk.

    oooh, look battle of the protein..
     
    Sorry DaMann...The sams still wins out on cost and the ON Gold standard whey is "artificailly enhanced"
     
    gators52...How many servings in that and which type is it?
    Oh, and can you even open their website?  I could not.
