This stuff is excellent, nothing artificial. This was available 2 weeks ago and sold out fast. get one while you can. Vanilla costs an extra 3-4 bucks but I usually stick with chocolate anyways. Taste is only ok but nutrient profile is great.
ON All Natural 100% Whey is my favorite but is hard to find at less than $50+ so this is a nice alternative
Stevia contains two main sweetening chemicals, stevioside and rebaudioside. The former has been linked in multiple studies to DNA damage. The latter has not been adequately studied, according to UCLA's toxicology department[cspinet.org],, which particularly worrisome as the two chemicals are very similar.
Fructose is linked to fatty liver disease, although the 6 grams one will get from two scoops of this is not tremendous.
Thanks. In for one. Read it tastes bad. But im sure those of us that drink whey everyday for years have gone through tubs of "bad" tasting protein with no problem.

Not a big fan of fructose/sucrose, more of a malto (pure glucose) type of guy. And about stevia:
"In 1991, after receiving an anonymous industry complaint, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labeled stevia as an "unsafe food additive" and restricted its import. The FDA's stated reason was "toxicological information on stevia is inadequate to demonstrate its safety."
Since the import ban in 1991, marketers and consumers of stevia have shared a belief that the FDA acted in response to industry pressure.
Stevia remained banned until after the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act forced the FDA in 1995 to revise its stance to permit stevia to be used as a dietary supplement, although not as a food additive – a position that stevia proponents regarded as contradictory because it simultaneously labels stevia as safe and unsafe, depending on how it is sold.
In 2006 the World Health Organization (WHO) evaluated experimental studies of stevioside and steviols conducted on animals and humans, and concluded "stevioside and rebaudioside A are not genotoxic in vitro or in vivo and that the genotoxicity of steviol and some of its oxidative derivatives in vitro is not expressed in vivo." The WHO also found no evidence of carcinogenic activity.
While reports emerged that found steviol and stevioside to be weak mutagens, the bulk of studies show an absence of harmful effects. In a 2008 review, 14 of 16 studies cited showed no genotoxic activity for stevioside, 11 of 15 studies showed no genotoxic activity for steviol, and no studies showed genotoxicity for rebaudioside A. No evidence for stevia constituents causing cancer or birth defects has been found.
The WHO's Joint Experts Committee on Food Additives has approved, based on long-term studies, an acceptable daily intake of steviol glycoside of up to 4 milligrams per kilogram of body weight." -wiki
UCLA's toxicologists said the normal method of studying safety is to conduct true lifetime rodent studies in both rats and mice. This did not happen for rebaudioside-A approval, which was clearly fast-tracked because of big business money.
Multiple studies found that stevioside is converted to steviol in the body and steviol causes DNA to fragment (break). When at least three separate studies find this and the studies that are used to support its use are funded by the companies selling stevia (that's at least what happened with sucralose) and lack adequate normal methods, that is quite questionable.
