Again it is the quality of ingredients and absence of added fillers and artificial additives that help it claim one of the top spots. In fact it only has 6 ingredients in total and all of them are natural. I have a fairly sensitive stomach and this one didn’t caused me the slightest upset. In the past some protein powders used to cause me bloating and other adverse effect, I now know this was down to all the fillers and artificial additives they put in. Thankfully that’s not something you can say about this product. Any product causing discomfort should be discontinued immediately.
Each serving (28g) contains a very impressive 25g of protein.
It costs $0.67/oz, which is slightly cheaper than Optimum Nutrition’s protein, but still reasonable for such a high quality product.
It’ is available in a range of flavors such as Dutch Chocolate (which is the one I’m reviewing here), Natural Vanilla, Strawberry, Toffee caramel Fudge Cookies & Creme and also Natural which has even fewer ingredients.It does require quite a vigorous shake or a blender as it can sometimes clump when mixing. Update: I have also just tried the vanilla flavor and have to say it does taste very nice, not at all over sweet or artificial. In fact I sprinkle it over my muesli in the morning to make it taste better and for that extra protein boost.
