Default Whey Protein Powder

Does anybody know where if whey protein powder is a supermarket item or do I have to go to a specialty store, like a Whole Foods?

Thanks!

Walmart has it but but you also need a source of active polyunsaturated oil ( Omega-3 )

Do you mean, in order to use it? I have a recipe that mentions whey powder but nothing about polyunsaturated oil

no, the powder is good by itself but your cells need Omega-3 to do much with it and if you cook your food thus destroying the Omega-3 then you need an extra raw (uncooked) source of Omega-3 and distilled (heated) fish oil isn't it.

I get mine at Target but many of the health nutrition stores have it also. Target seemed to have the best price.

I buy vanilla-flavored whey powder from Trader Joeís. It comes in a green and blue canister. Iíve had other whey powders and find TJís the best. I often mix it with plain yogurt, nuts, and berries.

I havenít heard about any need to take omega-3 with whey. I do take fish oil pills myself and encourage everyone to get the omega-3 they need, but I havenít heard about any need to have omega-3 to get the benefits of whey. I have heard of studies that fish is a better way to get omega-3 than fish oil pills. Iím not sure how true that is, but I have read it in multiple places. In any case, I think itís sort of impractical to eat fish every day, not to mention mercury concerns. As I understand it, gentle cooking shouldnít destroy the omega-3 in fish but omega-3 does degrade with heat and the more it is cooked the more omega-3 is lost.

I've given up on the whey for now - way too expensive. If I bought a can, I'd have to move into it.

I make my shakes as part of or my meal. If you are watching calories then the shake is maybe cheaper than your normal meal. A shake with a banana or other fruit is a complete meal.

I was actually going to buy it to make pancakes with, but it's cheaper just to buy the Maple Grove instead.
