Vanilla flavor tasted good.
Available Flavors: Chocolate and Vanilla.
I stacked up with British Nutritions Creatine and Glutamine.When i am using this product.As this is simply whey protein blend,you should feel it is not useful if you are looking to bulk up(not to be used as mass gainer). I feel great after using this whey with glutamine after workout.Recovery improved a lot by stacking all the three products.
Side Effects: I can say that the side effects are almost nil.Safe to consume. Consume as per the directions and limit to 3 servings a day,drink plenty of water. No Bloating,Gas Troubles.
Mix ability: Stirring with spoon is enough for perfect mix ability.If you are using too hot milk blender/shaker may be required for better mix ability.
Price: It is competitively priced when compared to other Indian supplement brands.I think it is affordable protein blend for the price we pay.Available in 1lb,2lbs.
500gm tub will give you around 15 servings only.
Cons: No BCAA profile given for this product. Amount of protein per serving is only 20g.It would be a better product if multi minerals/vitamins are added to it.
Pros: No sugar ( No extra calories)
Almost ignorable amount of fat and cholesterol.
Can be used at any time of the day. Mixable with juice/water/milk and other supplement can be stacked with it.
Best to use as Pre-workout and Post workout.
Value for money and trusted supplement from an Indian company.But there are also better supplements available at the counter,if you are willing to spend a few more bucks.
Available at local supplement stores at all major cities,can be purchased online in India.
