I'm a very selective competive athlete and seek the best natural products to enhance my workouts.
When reviewing many of the popular protein powders, I've noticed many to have synthetic and/or harmful ingredients in their blends.
I've used a select few high-end formulas for specific results and found KOA to be the best.
Love the taste, always arrives quickly, mixes very well.
The timely delivery and product quality was excellent.
Loving the Koa Chocolate! Easy to mix, easy clean up.
However, the recent rate increase (substantial) has a direct affect on my ability to continue purchase.
Love the product, have to sit on the beach and wait for some price easing.
Thanks for all the great protein and service for the past several years....
Would appreciate the bag being wrapped in something instead of bare in the box because during last delivery before most recent one the bag got sliced upon opening the box. Still my favorite protein, though, and I won my 4th straight bodybuilding competition .
Great Taste, I add it to my iced coffee every morning. Not only can I skip the sugar as a sweetener, but I now have a great tasting flavored coffee.
This delicious chocolate whey protein mixes more easily into liquid than any other we've tried. It just takes a stir or a shake - no blender needed. Yum!
Still a good value at the higher price
I have liked the product. I dislike that the price has increased 40% in a year. I will be moving on to find a equal or better product at a more reasonable price.
Your product has retuned to its previous high quality
I do like this product. A lot disappointed with the 30% price increase the past two years. It is at a price point now I will be moving along to find a comparable product. Paying $100.00 for a 6# bag you must improve on the packaging. From the day the bag is opened it doesn't stay sealed.
At 60 I can still put on muscle with KOA. No artificial sweeteners was a big reason I chose this product
I was concerned about buying a six pound bag of protein powder that I had never tried before, but this stuff is great. Mixes well and tastes great. Will definitely buy another bag in the future.
This is not only natural and free of artificial flavors it also is the best tasting chocolate protein powder I have ever tried. Great taste with no sugar you can’t go wrong. Big thumbs up!
However, the price increase, plus the uneven increase between customers (some were allowed to keep the old prices while others were imposed the increase) turned me off of from continuing subscription.
Again, great product though!!!!!!! Would’ve been all in with much lesser increase.
So happy the vanilla is back in stock
Great product, just too expensive for me as of now.
Great whey protein with a great taste! No fillers. The Pro-Hydrolase probably helps with digestion. That's why I bought Koa in the first place because it's hard to find whey with Pro-Hydrolase.
Great tasting and mixes well!
I love KOA makai chocolat. Is my favorite post workout and morning warm drink. I mixed it with Barley Coffee. While I love this product, I used to prefer the previous version with just Stevia for sweetness.
Great flavor and mixes easily. Best protein on the market.
KEEPS MY PROTEIN UP!
Coffee, Oatmeal even.
Mixes and Taste Great!
And Prohydrolayse too!
I have been using KOA Protein for 3 years and I love it!!
Package in tact; tastes great; works great!
Love the product. Customer service is also great. I have had to contact them on a couple times and their response has been timely.
It’s a great product, but I’ve noticed that some batches mix better than others. The last batch is one of the batches that doesn’t mix as well.
Excellent product. Tasty and energizing.
Have been using it for more than two years and plan to continue -- quality product and reasonably priced!
Hasn’t changed. Still awesome
Consistently high quality, and no sucralose! My favorite protein powder.
High quality natural ingredients and great tasting chocolate flavor. By far the best tasting protein powder I have ever tried. I highly recommended this product; you will not be disappointed.
I love the product and the auto renew option,I receive it monthly and save a few bucks
Excellent clean protein. Have tried many other brands. Can see a noticeable difference when using KOA protein and taste great!
Excellent product. Tried other protein powders. Always come back to KOA.
I like the whey isolate very much. Chocolate is my favorite. Very good protein, way above everything I tasted and used. I choose the subscription method, so I can have the protein every time I need. The ingredients are super pure and the product stays above all including Optimum Nutrition proteins! Great protein, great job by Koa Nutrition! Thank you guys, Alex
I love this clean protein. I have been a faithful customer, drinking this protein for about 9 months. I love the vanilla and chocolate. My only suggestion would be to make the bag have a better way to seal it. Right now the chocolate is an upgrade from the vanilla bag which does not seal. Just a suggestion : )
The best protein I have used and I have tried a lot. It is very clean and pure and love it doesn't have all the bad ingredients and fake sugars. The best thing that wasn't expected is how easily it is digested. Most proteins bloat me and cause gas. None of that with KOA. This is the only protein I will ever use now.
As good as always.
I make my own iced coffee every morning and put a serving of Koa into the mix. Goes great together! Not only does it make my iced coffee mocha flavored but gets more protein into my diet without eating another meal.
I mix the vanilla shake mix with unsweetened cocoa, cinnamon, ginger, a 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper and decaf coffee in my shaker cup.
This is the best product obtained anywhere. Have tried them all.
This is by far the best whey protein isolate you can get in the market. On the auto renewal it's the best priced protein out there. No artificial flavor, no artificial sweeteners. Great taste and great consistency. I use a shaker with water and ice and the powder dissolves completely. This is an everyday must for me.
Seriously delicious, love this protein. No weird aftertaste.
So far the best Non GMO with Stevia, pure Whey protein powder no other BS inside, in the fitness supplements products.
Love Koa vanilla protein powder. Have been buying it for awhile now and will continue to. I make a protein drink with it mixed with frozen and or fresh fruit.
Been using Koa for years and love it. It’s not only the best all natural protein I’ve found but is all around of the best tasting, smoothest proteins I’ve ever had! 11/10 would recommend it!
Incomparably great product, nothing can compare with its quality. Great care has been given by the supplier to the user.
Only the finest ingredients are used, and the results that I have obtained over 3 years of use are consistently great. Thank you for being there, KOA my warrior.
I have used this GREAT product for years, and after trying many others, have found this THE BEST. It is consistantly superior with MD verified results, via blood tests. Will never substitute !!!!!!!!!
I have been waiting awhile to post a review about this protein powder to test and compare over the last couple of years. KOA Protein Powder. is hands down the best out there compared to any other chocolate protein powder. This protein powder mixes very well with liquids and is very versatile with cooking and baking. It actually tastes like real chocolate and is super smooth. Can't beat the price for an amazing product made with natural ingredients. I will be buying KOA Protein Powder for life.
KOA Nutrition 100% Natural Whey Protein Isolate is the BEST whey protein shake you can find, period. The chocolate and vanilla flavors are great. KOA N.W.P.I. has been an integral part of my daily dietary regimen and has helped me loose 25 pounds of fat during this crazy time when many people are gaining weight.
Thank you KOA!!!
Have used this GREAT product with such success, that my family has now seen the benefits and are following suit. GREAT "STUFF" "GREAT PRICE" "GREAT PEOPLE WITH WHOM TO DO BUSINESS !!!
Really great protein powder; amazing taste and mixes perfectly!
Great ingredients, great taste, great price - Koa whey is definitely the best protein powder I've ever bought. It's the real gold standard.
Mixes well, good taste, low carb, sugar, high protein.
Have ordered several times
This is the finest product on the market. I have used it for years and found it to be the Best Buy and the BEST from a nutrition standpoint. GO FOR IT !!!!!
Koa Whey Isolate Chocolate Protein is by far the best tasting and most superior of all protein powders. I used to buy cheap whey protein when I was younger because I wanted to get bigger. I didn't care what I was putting in my body , fast forward 10 years and my stomach cant handle whey protein anymore. Every time I drink whey protein my stomach gets upset. Koa Whey Isolate Protein Powder is the only protein powder my stomach can handle and the only protein powder I will buy. If you're reading this dont waste your time searching for a protein powder , buy this stuff you wont be disappointed
Excellent quality and price for this product. Tried many protein powders and this is absolutely my favor. Love the clean ingredients.
This stuff is pure. Only the best that KOA brings.
I LOVE this protein! I had been on a plant-based protein from Costco for the last several years and saw zero results. In the first 30 days I have added 4 pounds of mass. The chocolate is delicious and the resealable bag is convenient. I'll purchase now and well into the future.

I've bought whey isolate from these brand a few times before, and - compared to any brand I've ever tried - they're still the best tasting.They've always had a more genuine taste of chocolate compared to any brand I've tried before. This is likely because it doesn't use any extra "natural & artificial flavors" beside the cocoa powder itself, resulting in a drink that really tastes like chocolate. If there is one "potential complaint" that some may have, it's that it may taste unusual for those not used to the (natural) sweeteners, Stevia and Erythol. But aside from that, it's flawless.It mixes very easily, too. A cup of milk and a teaspoon is all you need to mix a full scoop of this powder into a drink (with little effort). No shaker required for a quick drink.From reading the other reviews, you may notice some sort of packaging issue in these bags. Good news is that it has been solved!What they did was a bit unusual: Instead of the classic air-tight seal, this bag uses some sort of plastic velcro to close it. As a result, it opens and closes very quickly and reliably! It may not be as airtight its previous version, but is comparatively indestructible.Oh, and what I think is one of the best pros of this brand:For its size and quality of ingredients, it has very good value!No BS filler ingredients like obscene amounts of added BCAAs (i.e. not naturally occurring from the whey itself), small amounts of no artificial sweeteners like sucralose, and no artificial flavors either (meaning that you get the full, real flavor of chocolate).All in all, you're getting the benefits of all of this in a drink that's only 7 cents more expensive per scoop than a Gold Standard!You may think that this all is too good to be true, but I think it's thanks to them not spending much on marketing. Optimum Nutrition, GNC, MyProtein; you may have heard these brands one way or another, and that's they spend wads of money into marketing their products. But since Koa doesn't prioritise marketing, they can spend more on the quality of the ingredients without driving their prices high.So, just because you never heard of this brand doesn't mean its bad. I myself stumbled into this brand by chance, and never regretted buying it. So trust me when I say that you will not regret trying this brand either.
After finding KOA at a wholesale box store (and then not finding it there), I went directly to the website, prepared to find that it was likewise out of stock and/or that there was a significant upcharge, either at the front end or with shipping. I was happy to find neither was the case. Pricing was competitive and shipping was free. I was — and am —sold. We had been using a competitor’s whey blend sweetened with that -ose family of non-nutritive sweeteners so I was especially happy to find KOA sweetened with Stevia. We use the vanilla creme and then add our own cocoa (plus some 20 other ingredients) to blend our morning smoothie. That, after some some fresh-ground-and-pulled espresso gets every day off in style. I guess if you were in to major body building, you would want to step it up a bit; but we’re not, and this is the perfect breakfast.
My husband and I have tried a lot of different whey protein over the years and nothing even comes close to Koa!!! The texture is like silk talcum powder that mixes effortlessly with a couple shakes. Both the vanilla and chocolate are very mild and taste amazing in oatmeal, smoothies or homemade peanut butter protein balls. I promise once you try this product you will be hooked. Please don’t ever stop making this...maybe add some variety of flavors like strawberry, cookies and cream or even birthday cake to change it up from time to time. Best protein EVER!
I ordered the KOA protein shake in vanilla. It came in a big 5 lbs. tub and stores great. The moment I removed the seal, the sweet aroma of vanilla tickled my nostrils. I had to do a little digging to find the scoop. I’m sure it had just settled during packaging. Before I went elbows deep into the tub looking for the scoop, I used a butter knife to see if I could locate said scoop. I found it! But couldn’t get it wedged from the bottom with my knife. I almost gave up. Lucky for me “We are the Champions” had been playing on my oldies mix. This gave me the resolve to keep going. I grabbed the bbq tongs and went in deep. Usually I mix my protein shakes in my plastic shake-weight style bottle. You know, the kind with the spring in the middle to mix things up? Today, however, I decided to forgo my usual routine and added a handful of frozen strawberries and made a frothy purée with my Ninja. I poured it into a large Fuzzy Taco’s cup and nursed that thing for the next hour. It tasted just like you you’d expect. I don’t recommend the frozen strawberries. The shake, however, is pretty good, and it mixes great - no chunks to swallow on the go. One suggestion for the manufacturer - having the size/volume of the scoop printed in “cups” or “oz” alongside the nutrition facts could be super helpful to avoid digging to find the scoop.
