What's the difference between a whey concentrate and Jay Robb's Whey Isolate?
- Short filtered so only part of the milk sugars are removed: Contains lactose, a concentrate is not suitable for those who are lactose intolerant.
- May contain at least 70 grams of sugar per 24-ounce container (a concentrate generally contains 3 grams of sugar per 30 gram serving).
- Not Raw: To the best of my knowledge, all protein powders sold in the USA must be pasteurized
- One step below the purification that is required for an isolate
- Generally cheaper and more abundant in this world, hence it could encourage a manufacturer to tout a concentrate as being superior to an isolate because that manufacturer may not have wanted to pay the extra money for an isolate.
- Contains less protein than an isolate

Is your protein powder pasteurized?
Our Jay Robb whey protein powder comes from milk that is flash pasteurized for approximately 15 seconds at 72° C (161° F). This causes very little denaturing of the raw materials. No further heat is applied at any other phase of creating our delicious whey protein powders.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL whey protein powders sold in the United States are from milk that is pasteurized as stated above or from milk heated to 145° F for 30 minutes. Many companies are now stating that their whey is “special” or unique in regard to heating and pasteurizing, but the truth remains that ALL whey proteins sold in America are from pasteurized milk.
Jay Robb Egg White protein powder is also flash pasteurized at the lowest temperature allowable by law at 134 degrees Fahrenheit for just 3 1/2 minutes
I am interested in purchasing and supporting animal-friendly products. It says your cows are grass-fed - are the animals treated humanely and are they pasture raised?
Thank you for your recent purchase and for your support of animal-friendly products! Rest assured, we side with you 100% and are happy to tell you that the cows that produce the milk for our whey protein are raised on small independently owned farms, are not treated with any synthetic growth hormones, and are grass-fed/pasture-grazed animals. We have gone to great lengths to provide the highest-quality product possible from animals that are treated humanly and not given synthetic hormones. To the best of my knowledge we were the first protein powder company in the world (and still one of the few) to take this stance.
Is your Whey protein imported from China?
NO! Our whey protein isolate is NOT imported from China. When you buy Jay Robb protein you are buying one of the highest quality protein powders on the market today.
Do your protein powders contain added sugars, carbohydrates, aspartame or artificial sweeteners?
No. Our protein product line was developed in 1990 because we couldn't find any high quality, all natural, low-carbohydrate, good tasting proteins powders on the market. Our protein is sugar free, MSG free, chemical free and we do not have gluten in our ingredients.
Does your whey protein contain the hormones rBGH or BST?
NO! Our whey is produced from original herds of cows that are not given recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) or bovine somatotropin.
*Because rBGH-free whey is primarily obtained from small farms throughout the world, there is only a limited supply. The Jay Robb Corporation secures large quantities abroad each year to meet our growing needs; however, there are times when the world supply runs short. During these periods, we may choose to procure the highest quality domestic whey protein in conjunction with rBGH-free raw materials to produce our world-class whey protein.
Are your protein powders and products gluten-free? What's the difference between "gluten-free" and no gluten on a product label?
In order for a product to be labeled gluten-free, it must be manufactured in a facility that produces only gluten-free products and products that do not contain wheat or gluten. Because none of our products are made with ingredients containing gluten, our label reads, “no gluten.”
Our manufacturer is GMP-certified and follows Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) to segregate ingredients on shared equipment and within the facility. This includes cleaning the lines between all production runs and stringent scheduling of product runs to avoid cross-contamination. A GMP-certified manufacturer is one that has exceeded the specific standards laid out by the United States Food and Drug Administration. GMP certification ensures that supplements and vitamins are manufactured safely, with the highest quality production from a state-of-the-art facility.
How is your whey isolate protein powder created?
Whey protein isolate, which is used exclusively in Jay Robb Whey Protein, is created by cross-flow microfiltering liquid whey through a special ceramic membrane to create the highest grade of whey protein possible. There is NO heat used during the cold-filter processing of our whey protein formula. (This special process DOES NOT DENATURE the protein.) This unique process also yields a whey protein isolate that is much higher in protein than a whey protein concentrate and is also rich in immunoglobulins, alpha-lactalbumin, and beta-lactoalbumin and other immune boosting factors.
Jay Robb Whey Protein is made from the finest natural ingredients available to deliver 25 grams of first-class protein, 0-fat, 0-cholesterol, 0-sugars, and only 1 gram of carbohydrate per 30-gram serving. Only microfiltered whey protein isolate is used as the protein source, and this material comes from farm-raised, pasture-grazed, grass-fed cows not treated with the synthetic bovine growth hormone rBGH.*
Unique natural flavors and the herb stevia are used to create a flavoring system that is palate pleasing and has made Jay Robb Whey Protein famous across the nation. Their tagline, “The Best-Tasting Protein on the Planet, ” says it all. Jay Robb Whey Protein contains NO artificial flavors, artificial colors, aspartame, acesulfame-K, or sucralose. This product is also instantized so that it mixes easily with the turn of a spoon. Jay Robb offers his Whey Protein in five outrageously delicious flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Pina Colada, and Tropical Dreamsicle.
