Only reveiwing from a sample receieved with my order from xplosiv
Diddnt like it much, too grainy, as if the carb content was literally ground up grains.
Not a big fan of any chocolate flavour so a bit biased here when I say I diddnt like the taste much at all.
As for formula and effectiveness I cannot comment as I would have to trial a whole tub to be able to judge its overall effectiveness older a period of time.
Received a sample of this with all my other stuff,will be quick.
Flavour - 9/10
Hard to put my finger on it,a milky chocolate on the thicker side.
Quite nice for a chocolate.
Mixing - 8/10
Mixed well in shaker but the texture had small granules in it,not sure if due to sample or not but it was odd.
Profile - 9.5/10
Great profile with quality whey,Multi release protein.
Price - 7/10
Not too expensive but there certainly is better out there for the money
Dymatize Elite XT / Gourmet comes to mind.
Taste: 10/10 - can i give this stuff a better rating? im honestly astonished how well this one is put together! I'd compare this strawberry flavor to crunch berries maybe?? haha its been years since ive had those but thats what it reminds me of. YUM!!
Mixability: 10/10 - too good to be true right? this stuff mixes perfectly with milk or water, not gritty or clumpy. just a bit of foam at the top which indicates quality whey isolate.
Nutrition: 10/10 - I almost want to give a lower rating in fear that I sound like a shill. But this stuff really does have it all. Mid range calories (its not a bulker fellas). 26 grams protein per scoop, 7 grams carbs (only one 1 gram of which is sugar) - this stuff is loaded with additional BCAAs and glutamine.
Digestion: 9/10 - This stuff does not upset the stomach in the least. some proteins leave you feeling bloated or just plain sick. this stuff has a real clean feel. i feel great after slamming a shake after a workout or just mid day to get in some extra macros. no issues like racing to a toilet in fear of something explosive hah.. a few protein farts maybe but come on.. thats to be expected.
Price: 9/10 - we'd all like to see protein prices drop, but thats just not a reality. everything else is going up and this stuff is not outrageously priced. 100% worth the money to me.
Flavour - not usually a fan of chocolate but this smelt/tasted just like drinking chocolate! 9/10
Mixability - Mixed easy as with no clumps. interesting consistency ( even with water). it was quite thick and, as someone else put it, quite chalky but still really nice- 9/10
Product - seems good, but reasonable amount of carbs so not too sure i'd use it while cutting. Price is also really high compared to others - 7/10
Would buy over musclepharm combat powder any day
Great product. Great taste and best protein supplement for hardcore body builders. Can feel the difference just after 1 serve.
Decent taste from this complex whey offering from Muscletech but texture is a bit funky and a pretty low protein % per serving. Full review at http://supplementreviews.co.nz/forum/topic/1828-muscletech-phase-8-protein-hitros-thoughts/
Just tried a sample of this protein. The flavour is really rich and intense - makes me worry about the carbs a bit.
Taste - 9/10
Chocolate - really rich n sweet.
Consistency - 9/10
A bit gritty but easy to mix with water.
Formula - 9/10
Carbs a bit on the high side, but keen to see if the BCAAs help me recover faster.
Overall score - 9/10
Pretty decent protein but I would personally prefer Horleys Ice.
Alright so this was one of the supplements I was sent to review. My thoughts on this supplements are that it was really good, I had just taken it post workout and I had already noticed that I felt a lot better after my workout than how I'd usually feel when I wasn't on protein, I felt less tired after my workout, I felt like my body was recovering a lot faster aswell, even just few hours after my workout!
Taste: 10/10 (Milk Chocolate was AMAZING!)
Formula: 10/10 (26g protein and a decent amount of BCAAS+Glutamine)
Overall score: 10/10 - would definitely recommend this!
Was lucky enough to receive a sample of this protein today from supplementreviews.co.nz - because it was only a sample I cannot comment extensively, however I can say that when I next run out of protein, this is the product I will be purchasing!
Taste – 10/10
Incredible flavour! Tastes like a delicious chocolate milkshake that you'd buy from an ice cream parlour. Best tasting protein I've ever had - and it was mixed with water even!!
Consistency – 10/10
I mixed it using a blender, and found that it had a perfect consistency - creamy, no clumps, loved it.
Formula – 9/10
Little bit high on carbs and calories for my taste, hence why I couldn't give it a 10/10, but still pretty good!
Overall score – 9.5/10
I was sold purely on taste!!!
Taste - 9/10
As a chocolate fan this was pretty damn good, among the best ive had. It wasnt overly sweet and tasted similar to drinking chocolate and milk when mixed with 200mls or water.
Consistency - 9/10
mixed for 15 seconds in a shaker cup and ball, No clumps, no powder left over. I did find that it had a different texture when drinking, somewhat slightly chalky. but that could probably have been fixed by shaking it for a bit longer. overall consistency was great.
Formula - 8/10
Formula is alright but not awesome in my opinion, is pretty heavy on the calories 150 compared to my preference probably because it contains 7g of carbs per serv comapared to the average 4 or 5. 26g of protein was pretty decent though along with an aded 2.2g of glutamine which was a bonus. It has a huge amount of ingredients which adds to the large serving size of 42grams. The blend of casein and whey is good for people looking for both a slower releasing protein for before bed or in between large meals, aswell as a faster one post workouts.
Overall score - 9/10
The flavour really carry's this overall score, formula is alright in my opinion but not the best compared to others, and texture was a bit off for me. And for such a large serving you do not get a huge amount at $72 per 22 serv. However the price factor isnt really included in this review.
Really Really good amazing protein!!
Love it. It taste good, and mixed really good. This has it all, a protein that takes long to release. Its a good mixture of protein with low carbs /fats. As a bonus you get all the BCAA + glutamine. The only thing is the price, but if you can afford it or it comes on a deal, get it!
Great slow release protein good mix ability only downside I found to it was the price but as all muscletech products are expensive
The taste is awesome, the texture is awesome. No Sugar which is a huge bonus. The only downside I would say with this is that it is $109 for 50serves. However in saying that, if you are currently taking glutamine and bcaa’s you almost wouldn’t need them if taking this protein. Which therefore would make it well worth it from a $$ perspective.
Have tried the strawberry... Taste is out of this world... D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S... Mixes good with no lumps... It does have this interesting texture, not sure im a huge fan of it... Thick and yummy though.
would def recommend this to all you out there :)
Tastes good and mixes really well, the texture is a bit strange at first (somewhat malty) but overall it's worth a try!
Not going to make this long or go on and on about the formula! Straight to the important stuff!
Taste = amazing!
Texture = amazing! thick but yet smooth and runny? it's very different!
Mixes 100% in water no clumps!
Stirs into cooked oats 100% with again, no clumps!
My new boss protein~ will continue to use this now over all others.
Mixed up in my xplosiv shaker in about 4 seconds, no residue left over.
Strawberry: Gotta admit when I got this one, I actually thought it was Vanilla (didnt see the tub and the powder was hard to distinguish in the room I was mixing it in).
Milk Chocolate: True to the description, it is milk chocolate flavoured, the standout being how rich it is. VERY large flavour. Love it, though this was based on 1 scoop, often I used 2 scoops which might be an overload in this case.
Regardless, it was easily one of the best tasting powders I've tried, and that's against myofusion elite and Cellucor Cor-performance.
It also had an amazing texture - almost like a thick, silky feel. Hard to explain.
At a glance 7 grams of carb is quite hefty against most other proteins out there which average 4 or 5g, yet only 1g is actually sugar. Not sure how much room this leaves for sugar alcohols and things? However 26g protein is very decent.
• Build Muscle
• 8 Hours of Muscle Food
• Less Carbs & Fats
• 6 Blends of Protein
• Promote Muscle Recovery
• Multi Phase Protein Delivery
• Prevent Muscle Breakdown
• Digestive Enzymes
• Milk Derived Protein Blends
That's the blurb from the profile, and tbh, kinda feel like I've seen it all before, but hell, it's one of the tastier brands of protein, and the digestive enzymes are a good bonus.
It's a little more pricey than most of the whey's out there so not sure if I'd rush out to purchase given fincances (I usually stick to xplosiv's HyperWhey) but the taste and texture are extraordinary.
Probably the best tasting chocolate protein I've tried, the main key factor of phase 8 protein is the texture profile, it's almost unreal how good it is..
Apparently Strawberry and vanilla are meant to be the best flavors and I tried chocolate.. I can't understand how the taste could be much better though, simply outstanding!
