Below we take an in-depth look into Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey, to see whether this ethically-sourced whey protein isolate offers the right combination of performance-boosting benefits for customers.
Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey is a protein powder supplement featuring a single dose of whey protein isolate. Sourced ethically from grass-fed cows, this protein powder is advertised as being a cut above regular protein powders, offering greater performance-boosting effects than the average product. This product is also notable for its unusual flavours, including its bizarre “fruity cereal” flavour.
This product is produced and sold by Cellucor. Despite its relative popularity, Cellucor has faced controversy in the past – they were actually the subject of a federal class-action lawsuit and some hugely negative media attention after it was discovered that their C4 series contained dangerous substances like DMAA. The company has since removed the offending ingredient from its products, but faces a struggle to re-establish trust with its customer base and with regulators.
Protein powders are unlikely to cause much in the way of side effects unless they are consumed to serious excess. Overconsumption of whey protein can cause bloating, weight gain, increased bathroom visits, thirst, nausea, cramps, reduced appetite, fatigue, and headaches. When following the manufacturer’s recommended dosage, protein powders shouldn’t cause any issues at all.
On most of the websites we checked (including the official Cellucor webstore), a single pack of Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey costs around $35-$40. However, we were able to find the same packs on sale for slightly cheaper on All Star Health (where it costs $30) and www.bodybuilding.com (where customers can buy a $35 pack on a buy-one-get-one-half-price deal). Some Amazon dealers also offer reasonably low prices. Customers should remain aware that each 1.72lb tub of Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey contains just 24 servings of powder.
There isn’t much to split different protein powders, as most are roughly the same. However, Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey is interesting in that it is a clear example of what not to choose.
Despite the manufacturer’s claims that this formula is superior, it actually represents quite a limited blend. Containing just a single dosage of whey protein isolate, this product is arguably inferior to other brands that mix the fast-acting effects of whey protein isolate with slower-acting sources like micellar casein. The protein used in this product may be ethically-sourced, but that unfortunately does not make it any more effective than any other.
To make it worse, this product is notably expensive given the low number of servings that are provided per pack. Customers appear to have given a mixed reaction when it comes to the product’s flavour and mixability, with the “fruity cereal” flavour often singled out for being unpalatable.
Overall, this product may appeal to those looking for a good source of whey protein isolate, although we’re sure you could find a cheaper and tastier option.
We do not recommend Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey to our readers.
Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey is a protein powder supplement that comes in a set of distinctive flavours, including fruity cereal, orange citrus, and strawberry splash. The manufacturers claim to use a special cold filtration process that removes all of the fat and cholesterol you would normally find in a whey protein supplement.
Cellucor is a brand owned by Woodbolt Distribution LLC, who are based in Texas, USA. The company recruit through the name NutraBolt, and own several supplement brands, including Neon Sport (a sports nutrition range for athletes), Royal Sport Ltd (top-shelf stimulant based nutrition brand), Cavalier (a range of supplements for men, including testosterone boosters and sexual health supplements), and Cellucor. The company can be contacted using the information provided on the Cellucor official website’s contact us page.
The directions for use are as follows:
Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey is a protein powder that claims to help build and nourish tired muscles. What distinguishes the mixture from other comparable products is its reported use of a cold filtration process that supposedly filters out “unnecessary fats” and makes the protein more effective.
Cellucor claims that their protein powder has been proven to more effectively boost muscle power and performance and shorten recovery time when compared to other products.
This product utilises whey protein isolate, which means that it has considerably less fat than other comparable protein powders. Like most other protein supplements out there, it should work well to boost muscular performance and endurance and lower recovery times. However, there is no reason to think that this product’s results are more dramatic than any other protein powder out there. In fact, its reliance on just a single form of protein likely robs it of some the slow-acting benefits of other forms (like micellar casein for example).
The ingredients found in Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey are listed below. The quantities listed are correct for 1 rounded scoop (31g) of powder. Each rounded scoop also contains 110 calories and 0.5g of fat.
Protein shakes do not generally come with too many side effects. Overuse of whey protein shakes can sometimes cause increased bowel movements, thirst, bloating, nausea, cramps, reduced appetite, fatigue, and headaches. Those suffering from kidney issues or those that require prescription medication should check with their doctor before trying out protein shakes, as the increased protein intake could cause issues.

The reviews we were able to find for Cellucor IsoPro Grass-Fed Native Whey were slightly mixed. Most customers agreed that the product broadly worked as advertised, but the flavours appeared to be highly controversial (especially the fruity cereal flavour).
First off, it won’t dissolve so I end up with a clumpy mess and texture in my mouth – I hate it. The taste – way way too sweet. In addition, there is an artificial sweetener aftertaste… I wish I could have returned it.
Unique flavor but has a bit of an aftertaste for me.
The powder is finely textured and stirs/mixes well in water and in my bullet mixer with almond milk and yogurt. It does indeed taste like a fruit loop-type cereal, which is sort of a berry flavor with a hint of vanilla. It is ever so slightly on the sweeter side and could be a little less for my taste but I think most people will like it. I’ve made the switch to grass fed meats for several reasons and it’s good to see that milk and protein supplements are moving in this direction, as well.
Throwing this in your smoothies literally makes it taste like fruit loops. I have to admit it was a little weird. Tasty, but not my favorite.
