could be lactose or maltodextrin (people can have a reaction to either/both)...

it's also possible that the product is old or contaminated...

I am under suspicious that it's lactose as good dose of milk does give me farts in the least.. but not as badly diarrhea hmm.

What I ordered was the 'super whey' strawberry... this time around I ordered the smart powder chocolate blend which technically is scivation but unbranded but also 10lbs... will see how this goes... Does mention 'contains milk products'.

The strawberry tasted insanely amazing... but the diarrhea lmao...

Will report back in... with results this week when it ships haha...

I like that it's 10lbs and wish more companies made 10lbs bulk powders... eh.. I tend to buy everything in bulk to save money anyway... and don't care for brand names either...

personally i tend to test a new whey protein if i have to change brands and then order it consistently...

i've learned over the years that some products react better with me than others

I'd be inclined to think it was the lactose or maybe the dicalcium phosphate before the maldodex which is in so many things and is usually fairly benign.  Then again, I might also be inclined not to necessarily believe the label of an "off brand" if that is the result...
