A gigantic warning to all concerning whey protein powders

****Remember 2 years ago when I warned you about the oncoming milk shortage and what it would do to whey protein prices? And across the board whey protein prices rose.....

This makes that look like a blip.

I am forewarning everyone. Two major soft drink company's (here I'll make it easy, they begin with C and P to narrow it down, thats all I'll say).....have pretty much shut down the whey protein industry for the rest of 2010. The one company is coming out with a RTD whey product and the other company and their "Alligatorade" drink (think about it) bought a half a billion pounds of whey protein in which they are going to launch their Ready To Drink protein product. Now to do this they bought up all the raw ingredients from all corners or the earth and even existing product out there to tweak into their product. The other company bought a tremendous amount of whey from Asia which in turn is making a huge shortage here in the United States with manufacturers trying to catch up.

This "Alligatorade" drink company acquisition is going to drive whey protein prices skyrocketing northward. The problem is whey is a byproduct of cheese/dairy and the dairies arent going to start manufacturing more cheese to get more byproduct=whey protein (and throw away the cheese).

So and im strongly warning you on this....STRONGLY...trust me that this is going to happen. They bought up a tremendous amount of raw ingredients of whey isolate to mix into their sugar water. 500 million pounds....The other company bought up a tremendous amount of whey protein concentrate.

Whats this mean to you?

We are going to try our best to hold the line but what we are being told is whey protein could very well go to 2 - 3 times the price per pound of what it currently is. And I mean this across the board from every single protein powder company out there.....and in any and every area of whey protein being sold out there.

We probably are in the process of getting rid of the recession whey protein pricing right today due to this but we are going to try to hold out on everything else as long as we can. You will see whey protein powder prices rise and rise and rise for the next month after month after month elsewhere in stores, in retails sites....everywhere.

Do you still want to "be like Mike"?

My prediction? That sugar water company will abandon this in early 2011 after it fails miserably but the tremendous damage will be done by then.

You can buy right from the source and get the high quality raw materials from Truenutrition.com or you can pay 1.5 to 3 times the cost for a glossy jug, fancy multicolored label, and $13000 per page magazine advertising costs....for a company I just might be making the product for anyway........

I hope the new slogan on their product is

Thinking about it, you should delete my post and close this thread. People will flock to this thread when they see your name as the poster, as opposed to ignoring it when they see my name, haha.

Interesting...

I heard about alot of stuff happening with various crops around the world ie. peanuts, quinoa etc. with huge growing demand

what's going to be interesting is if these companies have the foresight to take steps to mitigate the effects their actions will have on the global supply

this may be a stupid question but will this affect other powders such as egg?

Good time to switch to rice protein :P
On that note, what can we expect in terms of other protein prices?

I do agree this sucks, but I bet TP will come out of this stronger than ever.

well i've always been told there's no such thing as a stupid question.....just stupid people.

seriously though, i just didn't know if a steep increase in the main type of protein could cause a bit of an increase across the board.

Just throwing this out there, but I work in a grocery store, and tried the "H4" product <_<

...and it sucks. People will buy it because of the name and marketing, but it just doesn't taste good at all. I don't see it lasting very long.

Happily I'm not lactose intolerant. If all else fails I'll be back on a gallon of milk a day this winter.

Yes, bro. Law of demand and supply. Since whey protein supply will drop to (almost) zero, people will rush to other sources. Using this reasoning alone, we can surmise a spike in prices.

gatorade has actually had canned RTDs called "recovery" and "nutrition" for at least the past two to three years, so im assuming they are expanding on their line of shitty low quality products which are of almost no real nutritional value, google the nutrition facts its seriously a joke..
