This was just at my door -- check it out -- protein crisps! You can cook with 'em -- eat 'em straight up -- anything.
Our whey crisps are made from using microfiltration/ultrafiltraion whey
protein isolate. Whey protein isolate is the best form of whey protein
because it contains the highest amount of protein per gram. Because we
use whey isolate, our whey crisps have a very high amount of BCAA's and
glutamine. Next, we chose a whey protein isolate that was cold-filtered
to preserve the delicate protein subfractions and peptides, like
lactoferrin and insulin-like growth factors. A combination of high
BCAA's and protein subfractions make our Whey Protein Crisps your #1 choice for a muscle-building food source.
You can cook, bake, and pretty much do anything you want with whey crisps without the common problems of cooking with whey powder. Consumers in the past who tried to make protein bars using whey powder and were unsuccessful can now make protein bars using whey crisps and the result is a fantastic tasting, long lasting, protein bar made from whey. Not only are our whey crisps the best product to make high protein foods with, you can actually eat the Whey Protein Crisps right out of the container!

ALTHOUGH - I just moseyed over to their BPT main site (NOT WHERE I GOT THEM FROM... so I totally missed this!) and was a bit taken back, and I'm no prude. Methinks they could make a lot of $$$ via other routes (a la bariatrics) and this is a BIT more than I wanted to see. Look how they "sell" the crisps:
Okay - I am over it. Just jealous.
I opened the tub. *sniffed* The crisps LOOK like hamster feed? They smell sort of like a protein powder, but hardly.
I took a tiny bite -- because these ARE calorie dense with all the protein. They taste like plain protein nuggets. LOL. That's the taste. Protein nuggets. They are very crunchy, not light and airy like a puff, they are DENSE like a, grape nut, but not THAT crunchy.
You could potentially just eat them plain, I immediately took a scoop and ate it like cold cereal with a couple tablespoons of soy milk. THIS could replace that "cold cereal" craving. It's super duper filling. No, really. *thud* I could truly eat this for a snack just like I just did. 150 calories, 28 grams of protein, and I am FULL. There's no way I should be ... but it's sticking.
I see this product used as a cereal, trail mix additive, baking additive. Or, as a mix-in.
I could also see someone post - WLS using it as a snack to help when they're losing TOO much weight, adding healthy calories in a small amount.
Overall - this product rocks - especially if you are looking to supplement your protein on a budget - you get 28 grams of protein for $1.02.
