Ask the store manager or the service desk.

I would try a health food store for a better selection and more quality products; the regular grocery stores are just going to carry the things they can order from their suppliers, mostly big commercial brands. GNC, I think, has some good varieties.

Look on the internet, you can normally get a better price on line (if you are in the States particularly) you don't normally find it in the supermarket, not in my supermarket anyway!

In my grocery store it's in the organic/natural foods aisle.

I'm sorry, it just sounds nasty. What is used for?

Body builders and regular exercisers use it to boost up their protein intake. Its also helpful for ill people who may have difficulty eating eggs, chicken, meat etc. It almost always comes flavoured like chocolate, strawberry or vanilla. You can mix it into smoothies with milk, water and add stuff like fruit. You can make it into bars (the protein bars you buy are very expensive) or you can even bake it muffins (which is controversial as some people say heating it destroys the protein content and others say in baking like muffins its fine). I don't use it myself at this stage, but I am about to take up running, so I will need to up my protein intake a bit, then I might start. Problem is, that it adds calories, so it means chopping calories off from somewhere else!

They are near vitamins and other "health supplements" in my supermarket.

I put it in my smoothies and put it in my oatmeal too before heating it up. Does heating it up in the microwave ruin the protein?

Normal people use it too! I use a protein powder called NRG, which has balanced amino acids for a complete protein.

I have a really, really hard time eating in the morning. I found that if I make myself a "smoothie" (NRG, papaya juice, a tablespoon or so of flaxseed oil, a dash of honey, frozen berries and / or fruit, depending on my mood) then I am much better about starting out the day with something other than my beloved coffee.

I buy mine at our local co-op, but I know that the better grocery stores which have heath-food aisles usually carry a couple brands of protein powder as well.
