Does anyone know what company makes the Whey protein powder from the bins at Winco? Is it 100% Whey? I found nutrition data on their website for the soy one but not for the whey. It's a great price but I want to know what I'm getting.

I work at a Winco and we don't sell whey protein powder in the bulk bins, only the soy (bin #1752). As for it containing whey, I am not sure. If you have any questions about any of the items in the bulk bins, call your local Winco or inquire on their facebook page...they always respond to questions fairly quickly. I hope that I was of some assistance.

Are you sure it was whey? I could only find soy as well.

Costco has Whey Protein powder, but I'm not sure if it's 100%. There's chocolate and vanilla, and they are both in big zip lock bags. I have both, and they taste really good mixed in almond milk!

I just tried the chocolate one from there. The Cytpsport at Costco. Yea it says it is 100% Whey. It tasted pretty good too.

I'm going to have to go back and double-check because website indicates it doesn't exist. I'll try messaging the store too. Thanks.

Yes, my girlfriend bought soy and I bought whey so I'm certain.

As of July 13 of last year they now list the nutritional value on the bin Itself as well as the website. has 19 g of protein hundred calories for 25g..among other values . I'm looking for recipes; how much water to add, etc
