Isopure Protein Powder - My Review

A look at Isopure Low Carb Dutch Chocolate.


Since supplements are one of my pet peeves, I didn't hesitate to volunteer when asked if I wanted to review Isopure Low Carb, dutch chocolate flavor. The review is sponsored by NutritionFix - they were so kind to send me a 3lbs jug.

I am big fan of whey protein, I think its one of the best supplements you can buy and Isopure is one of the top brands in the field, so I was curious if the actual product would hold up to my expectations.

Lets look at the nutritional information first.

Amount per Serving (2 scoops).

220 Calories
1 g Fat, 50 g Protein, 3 g Carbohydrates. It has a complete amino acid profile (as whey protein should have) and comes with a high amount of BCAAs (about 20%). It has zero lactose, which makes it very gut friendly and is fortified with nutrients and vitamins. Nothing to dislike here, it can even be used in a pre-contest diet.

Taste
Best Chocolate type that I've tried so far and I don't even like chocolate flavors. I usually stick with vanilla, since that gives me more options as to what to add but this tastes like a chocolate milk shake. I used to make protein brownies as well as pancakes and gives a very nice taste to them.

Mixability
It mixes well, but the only problem is that I was drinking, I notice that a some leftover crystals are left in the shaker. Not to worry though, the problem is easily solved by adding more water and just mixing again.

Price
Its not a cheap protein but when buying protein, you have to consider the quality you are getting. A lower quality protein will save you money, but you wont be able to digest all the protein that's on the label, so that's a net loss. Plus, the taste will be worse and who wants to be stuck with 5 lbs of concrete?

Overall, its a very solid product that I can recommend to anyone, be it a seasoned competitor or just someone who wants to supplement their protein intake. It can be used during a bulk or while cutting. If you are an early am cardio person, this would be your muscle sparing protein drink, that wont bloat you.

Does This Muscle Make Me Look Fat?.Max Misch (November 2004 - November 2007).One of the many problems with our society is that people are too spoiled. They want things immediately and with as little work as possible. This applies to people who whine about how they cannot gain weight, no matter how much they eat, but usually they eat like a mouse, nibbling at their food. Imagine if these same people were forced to live in a third-world country or in a combat zone.
