Anyone compared this to raw organic whey? thoughts?

December 02 2015

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.

How much cholesterol in the product?

April 16 2015

Konstantinos, thank you for your question. There are 40mg of cholesterol in each serving of NorCal Organic Whey. Please email info@norcalorganic.com if we may be of additional assistance.

Product: NorCal Organic Whey

Cholesterol says 40mg isn't that a lot per serving ? I don't want to worry about having High Cholesterol by taking this product.

June 22 2014

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.

How can you call this raw if it has been pasteurized?

May 07 2014

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.

Product: NorCal Organic Whey

I know that whey is the protein and lactose is the sugar, just want to make sure this product is lactose free as my husband cannot tolerate.

January 11 2014

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.

Which is better and why, NorCal Organic or Raw Organic Whey? I am confused which to choose

January 07 2014

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.
