About Whey Protein & Designer Whey

The Designer Whey vision is to change the "Whey" America feels about protein by providing consumers with great tasting, healthy whey-based products that improve their healthy lifestyles.**

Since 1993, Next Proteins has pioneered the manufacture of a full line of branded consumer whey-based products, including powders, bars and beverages. Next Proteins manufactures the industry's best selling protein, Designer Whey, which powers the company's innovative, great tasting products such as Designer Whey Protein2GO™ and Designer Whey protein beverages.
