Syntrax Nectar Whey Protein Isolate is a great tasting protein powder that delivers on nutrition. It is, in fact, one of my top two choices in protein powders – the other being Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard. According to si03, the manufacturer of Syntrax Nectar, it is embraced by those in the bariatric community who require daily supplementation of high-quality protein.
Great Tasting Protein Powder
Syntrax Nectar protein is available in a variety of fruit juice and tea flavors and a welcome diversion from vanilla and chocolate shake-type protein drinks. Syntrax Nectar mixes easily in water and I enjoy bottling it and keeping it on hand – or taking it on the go – instead of spending a whole lot of money on vitamin-type waters that aren’t so healthy. And as I aim to drink 80-ounces of water a day, Syntrax Nectar makes my “plain” water full of flavor.
Syntrax Nectar is so good that I sometimes make a mock taffy candy from it to satisfy my sweet tooth. Just add a few teaspoons of water to a scoop of Syntrax Nectar and stir. Viola – instant “taffy” that’s low in calories and high in nutrition.
Syntrax Nectar is available in these tasty flavors: Apple Ecstasy, Caribbean Cooler, Crystal Sky, Fuzzy Navel, Lemon Tea, Pink Grapefruit, Roadside Lemonade, Strawberry Kiwi, and Twisted Cherry.

Not All Whey Protein is Equal
Whey protein is the soluble fraction of milk protein that accounts for approximately 20% of the total protein content in cow’s milk. On the other hand, casein makes up the other 80% and is the insoluble portion that is used to produce cheese. During cheese-making, the casein fraction is coagulated and precipitated to form cheese, while the whey protein is filtered off to create other products. Those products that contain 90% or more protein are called whey protein isolates. WPIs contain nearly zero fat and zero carbohydrates and are the highest-quality whey protein products in the industry.
Promina™ is an undenatured (unaltered from its natural state) and highly soluble WPI that is extremely gentle to the gastrointestinal tract. Promina™ is also unmatched in its ability to be mixed in nearly any soft food or beverage without a noticeable change in taste or mouthfeel.
