Today I tried the EAS AdvantEdge 100% Whey Protein.

Below their website description:

23 grams of high quality protein. Only 3 grams of carbohydrates. High concentration of BCAAs. Protein is on of the fuels that helps make athletes go. To help support peak performance and optimal muscle growth, the protein you put in you body needs to be high quality. EAS 100 percent Whey Protein is high biological value protein that is naturally abundant in branched chain amino acids ( BCAAs). Research shows that BCAAs- isoleucine, leucine, and valine- support muscle protein synthesis and thus may help muscles recuperate from strenuous exercise. EAS 100 percent Whey Protein is isolated through a series of filtration steps, and instantized for ease of mixability. This produces a great- tasting, high quality protein that mixes easily in to water or your favorite beverage. 100 percent of the protein in this product comes from whey.

I will like to know if drinking this type of shakes will damage a low-carb diet?

I don't think so, when I go on my diet I have an ISO Whey protein shake and cut down on the carbs and actually helps burning fats. For me anyway. –  Salsero69 Jun 10 '11 at 20:43
    
Off topic according to the FAQ since the scope change of the site excluded questions not related to exercise. –  Baarn Sep 13 '12 at 15:48

For a low carb diet, 23 grams of protein to 3 grams of carbs is fantastic.

Whether or not a low carb diet is a good idea or if protein shakes deliver results to anyone other than body builders is a different question altogether.

+1 for answering the question. I think low carb diets are as sound as anything else, and protein shakes are a great way to supplement your protein intake, both for price and convenience. –  eevar Jun 11 '11 at 9:54
