Hi Cassidy, thank you for your question. Our Classic whey is just organic whey protein while our regular version has organic sunflower lecithin added so it mixes easily in liquids. We recommend Classic if you will be using a blender. NorCal Organic started in 2011 and has worked with the same farms since the beginning. Raw Organic Whey is a newer company and received a large number of very positive reviews very quickly from single review amazon members. Raw Organic Whey also has changed its website over time so as not to mislead people that their product is raw, this was not always the case and their name is a bit confusing in this regard.
Hi Juliana, thank you for your email. Our whey naturally contains 150mg of glutathione per serving. I can't speak on Immunocal. Thank you!
Hello Charles, there is approximately 1g of lactose per 25g serving. Thank you!
Hello L. Carnahan, thank you for your question. We have a number of customers that bake with NorCal Organic. The NorCal Classic is better for baking. Please see our website for recipe ideas. Thank you! Please note if the whey is exposed directly to high heat it could become denatured. In most baking application this is not a concern.
Thank you for your email. We are currently in the process of production and will be re-stocking as soon as possible. We apologize for the delay as our production is working to keep up with the number of orders we have received. We are increasing our packaging capabilities to avoid future shortages in inventory. Thank you.
There are 36 servings in our 2lb bag.
Hello Bianka, the expiration date is two years from the date of manufacture. On the back of the package there will be a stamp or label with a best by date.
Omega 3 = 0.013 g/serving
Omega 3 = 0.029 g/serving
The best Omega 3/Omega 6 ratio for a whey protein that we are aware of
Konstantinos, thank you for your question. There are 40mg of cholesterol in each serving of NorCal Organic Whey. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if we may be of additional assistance.
40mg is on par with most other protein brands, and some organic whey proteins have cholesterol as high as 50-60mg per serving. When you see protein brands with lower cholesterol numbers it is usually because they contain isolates and/or have been over processed. Thanks for the question.
Hi Sharon! Actually there are no whey proteins on the market that are actually "raw." When dairy products are sold across state lines, they must be pasteurized under FDA regulations. So if you see any whey protein marketing itself as "raw" it actually isn't. NorCal is proud to be transparent about our methods, our cows, and our farms. Thanks for the question.
Hello Tami! There are 1.07 grams of lactose in each 25 gram serving of NorCal Organic Whey. This is very similar to the lactose content in hard cheeses, if that is any guide. Thanks for the question.
Hi there! We're obviously partial, but NorCal is Non-GMO Project Verified and American Humane Association certified while Raw is not. We also tell you where we get our whey (Northern California farms) while they are very vague. Finally, they're really not "raw," that's just a marketing tactic.
NorCal Organic Whey is pasteurized and is considered safe for use by pregnant women. We recommend you speak with your pediatrician before taking any supplements.

Dear NorCal Organic Customer,
We have always been a company focused on providing the highest quality products to our customers. This includes our packaging. Recently we started using a new type of bag with the goal of reducing the amount of plastic we use. This was based on our company's environmental goals as well as many customer requests.
The new bags have an inner bag that protects the ingredients inside from air and moisture. The second layer of the bag, instead of using a plastic, we chose to use a paper based layer made from wood pulp. This reduced the plastic in our bags by 60%. Unfortunately, we have heard from a number of customers that this new bag is not durable enough and they have received bags that were damaged in shipping.
First, we apologize if you have been one of the customers that has received a damaged bag. Second, we are working as quickly as we can to bring back our previous bag packaging that provided the durability needed for our product to survive what can be a rough shipping experience.
Please reach out to us if you have received a damaged bag so we can take care of this.
Thank you for your understanding and patience, we will work as quickly as we can to correct this.
Thank you for your support.
