Default Grass Fed vs Regular Cow Whey

Off the top of my head, I'm going to say that given the processing of whey from milk, that this makes no difference at all except to your wallet.

Anyone have any legitimate, non-ad-copy information with regards to this?

Listen, I appreciate that, however, this is a specific piece of information that I would like to have, it's not me worrying about the wrong detail, since it impacts nothing either way.

Get grass fed.
It will cost you more, but grass-fed cows have lower bacteria levels.

I should point out that bacteria levels don't affect the whey protein, but they can possibly run-off and infect nearby farm land.

So, because I love spinach, and because I don't wash my spinach thoroughly every time, buy grass-fed, for my sake.

Please keep posting nonsense. Or wait, how about the opposite.

Forget I asked since apparently I'm the subject matter expert.

I should but for his proximity bias. I've done enough superficial research on this to know the answer.

In all seriousness, the only differences I've heard of between grass and grain-fed cows are
1) Better fatty acid profiles and
2) Leaner meat
3) Better gut flora (lower bacteria, less acid-resistant bacteria)

With that said, I don't think either one would affect whey protein. If there're any other known differences I'd be interested in hearing about them.

Although I'm sure the paleo crowd thinks differently...

Theres not much to dispute on grassfed vs grainfed meat, grassfed is the clear winner.

As for the powder, i havnt read anything that would suggest the pros make it down to that level. If you got the cash lying around then go for grassfed. Otherwise just make sure to buy a reputable brand.
