Is Myprotein a good source for protein powder? It scores well on labdoor but I don't know if labdoor itself is any good
>Having flavored protein
Well yeah but it just seems a bit too cheap. Right now you can buy 5.5lb for $24+$6 shipping and I just don't see how the quality can be any good when it competes against reputable brands selling for 2x+ the cost
My protein is a reputable brand, the only reason other supplement companies charge a lot more for their products is because they gain publicity by having sponsors in the fitness industry.
e.g. Having an Arnold Schwarzenegger tag on your brand will make people consider buying that product even if its priced higher than a similar product
Rather than up their costs with expensive sponsor deals, endorsements, unneeded shitty ingredients, packaging and so on they just sell really basic supps.
Salted caramel is GOAT
Make sure you look at the different flavors cause price varies. If you wanna save money that is. I got 20 lbs for 120 bucks. Dat bulk buy.
>bought a 5 kg bag of unflavoured
I dont even know why I did it. I'm not a poorfags. It's not like I needed to save the extra £5 instead of getting chocolate. Now I just have to pinch my nose and down it because it tastes like death.
Labdoor is a teneous source of the authenticity of the quality of the protein, especially when the CEO himself stated that 30g of spiked protein is better ranked then 20g of unspiked
I've gotten unflavored protein before, I really don't get why people think it's so bad. It basically tastes like super watered down milk, just doesn't really taste like anything desu senpai
Plus no additional sweeteners and the slightly higher protein content per serving is a plus
Chocolate smooth is alright but the thing to remember if you want the flavor you gotta use just one scoop, for 250ml of milf or you fuck up the flavouring mix and stuff. Like if you have strawberry flavor and you put two scoops with 250ml obviously it's not gonna taste as intended.
From experience though, chocolate coconut is shit. Gives me a headache and just smells of chemicals on the nose. Shit stuff.
Unflavoured with water ( good for me cos I just put two fucking scoops in a cup and use water fountain in the gym so it's icy cold ) is great. It tastes of nothing just a tiny bit minerally like the anon above said. It's good.
And lastly chocolate smooth. I'm only really putting chocolate smooth in with 60-75g of the instant oats with one scoop chocolate smooth whey and 400-500ml 2% milk, + like half a teaspoon chocolate nesquik. Blend it up good and leave it in the fridge for them nighttime gains after a late shift and it tastes pretty good. Real food is always better, sure, but I just want something quick to swallow down in 5 minutes after a late shift so it's handy for me.
Anyone know any other good flavours?
All shilling aside I'm seriously curious on the actual quality of the powder, when people talk about them being good they link to labdoor but what exactly states labdoor is any good other than a pretty website?
Has there ever been any heavy metal testing on this powder? Or checking for protein spiking or anything? Who cares if it's $26 for 5.5lb of powder if it's spiked to hell and contaminated with heavy metals?
MyProtein is the cheapest whey for sure. rated high on labdoor which might mean something.
their banana tastes like a less sweet version of ON's banana. perhaps the reason they get higher ratings is because there's less sweetners than the other guys (more protein per volume).
their unflavored is fine, the only other unflavored I've had is by Jarrow and what I can say is I find it odd how 'fine' MyProtein's is compared to Jarrow's. Jarrow's is more clumpy but they both tasted the same so idk if it's because either is more whey/more spiked/ whatever
how are we supposed to fucking know if the only website that does this is labdoor?
>labdoor says its good
take what you will from that and make a decision
Yeah I know anon, I really wish there was far more regulation in this sort of stuff. It's really insane that we have to effectively take the companies at their word or occasionally some third party does some testing (But not the more expensive testing since it's usually in some guys garage which is why the spiking scandal took so long to come out)
Well fuck me then senpai, I've chugged nearly 10kgs of theior vanilla WPC and it tastes bretty good to me. Don't buy their 0 calorie syrups though, shit's terrible
Bought an 11 pound bag of strawberry cream... Shit tastes like nesquick and an 11 pound bag of cinnamon roll a little to sweet for my liking but it's still good if you sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top.. Gonna get an 11 pound bag of cookies n cream next
You must be cautious with this kind of cheap stuff, they could say like the post above that it passed efficiently a nitrogen test but that does not mean the content of protein is the same, there are many ways to get a higher score at a nitrogen test, like adding melamine, a cheap subproduct of coal industry with a high content of nitrogen, or who knows any other thing added intentionally to get a higher nitrogen test. Be careful.
I like it. Just wait for one of their sales and order away. By far the cheapest and probably best protein I've used.
I ordered the 11lb banana split. My suggestion would be to either multiple version at this size and switch them up, or buy in smaller quantities. I get burnt out on one type if I use this much for too long. It tastes good though.
Its alright. You can get a lot of free shit ordering from Myprotein (and discounted shit). I bought Choco-Coco flavour and am not disappointed. They also got very good Peanut Butter if you are into that
