    Default Name a protein powder/supplement

    Looking to change my current one, wanting to get some recomendations.

    At least 30g protein per shake or cup
    Low sugar - prefer under 5g (2g would be even better!)
    No milk products- - No or very low fractose

    I was thinking trying Soy, cause every one Ive seen so far has milk in it or high in fractose.

    I haven't used many different kinds of protiens.. but honestly i think Optimum nutrition is the best, because it mixes well, taste actually pretty good (chocolate mint), and I think it has 81 or 82% unaltered protien. You can get it for around 45 bux if you order it off the internet.
    Curse you imageshack..

    Soy causes estrogen production.

    Whey is high in milk minerals and lactose.

    Why are you looking for such specifics?

    edit: If you're willing to spend a lot you can get Whey Isolate which is lower in lactose but you'll have to pay out of the ass for it.

    Optimum is definately one of the best brands out there but it won't fit your criteria.

    Im better off with low sugar as I minimize the amount of sugar going into my body. I hardly take any sugar right now, if any at all. Its how my diet is.

    I was looking at Mommath, its a very good deal and huge protein, I think 33g...but it is loaded with milk products.

    Go to superstore and grab some Dynawhey - its my new favourite. I recommend the Chocolate banana - $25 a bag, each 36g serving contains 30g of protein (mix of WPC and WPI) and only 1 single gram of carbs. Good taste, mixes easily and the price is good (that $25 bag is good for 30 servings).

    I've used about 5 different brands so far and this is my favourite.

    some no name brand shit (tasted like ass, mixed only with a blender, contained aspartame, awful awful shit)
    Ultimate Nutrition (decent)
    Prolab (cheap is not good, good is not cheap)
    Champion (expensive but lousy - high carbs, contains only WPC, but it does mix easy and taste good and stacks with other supplements well)
    Dynawhey - my fav so far.

    cool thanks bud. Ill look into it.

    Ya my diet is low LOW sugar and no dairy. My diet is based on nutrition, soy, fruits, veggies (mainly green ones, no starchy ones), chicken, turkey, fish (for omega 3,6,9 fats), and other vitamins and organic supplements like EPO, flaxseed, borage oils, olive oils, etc. It costs me a fortune but its all worth it. ORGANIC all the way.

    Oh wait forgot the no milk thing let me check if it contains lactose - all whey products are milk based but if they are pure enough they won't contain much lactose. You're only other option is to do egg protein (albumen).

    Edit: just checked - most wheys will make a big deal out of the fact that they are safe for people with lactose intolerance - and this doesn't mention it. I would check www.supplementscanada.com for egg albumen protein powder.

    Ya I was considering egg protein. Soy is pretty much out cause of the hormone increase.

    Hmm, I wonder who would carry egg protein.

    Here you go, it definitely costs more than whey powders.

    22g protein a bit below what you're aiming for but I doubt you'll be able to do better with such a niche product.
    4 g carbs

    Just out of curiosity - i've made an assumption that you're lactose intolerant - are you? Because if you're not whey powder is definitely the way to go both pricewise and in terms of getting your 30g protein to under 5 grams of carbs.

    Yes Im lactos in-tolerant. Even if I wasnt, I still wouldnt take in much dairy, not overly crazy about it.

    That stuff looks alright, I will just have to take in a bit extra daily to make up for the 8g protein loss....but no biggie. I agree, pay more for better stuff. For what I spend on my diet already, this is nothing haha. It should be just as effective as whey right? just more $....

    my current favorite is the 4everfit fruit blast performance whey protein isolate. its pricy tho, a 6lbs bucket is $95

    some features:
    -100% pure whey protein isolate
    -mixes instantly with water (like INSTANTLY, no lie)
    -tastes awesome with lots of different flavors
    -no aspertame, surgar or fat
    -only 0.8g of carbs
    -23g of protein per serving

    i even prefer it over nectar, i think it tastes better and it mixes easier, shaking it up in a water bottle works just fine

    i also use prolab whey protein, prolab makes a great product. and its cheap, which is good because i go through 5lbs of the stuff in less than a month.

    Whey is a milk product - its essentially the junk that's left over when you make cheese. Supplement companies refine that junk into the various whey and casein products. Going with an Isolate may eliminate the lactose concern, but you're still drinking a milk product :tongue:

    I'm guessing whey is cheaper than albumen because albumen is processed from a useable product versus whey which is a refined byproduct.

    PS Popeye's is great, I've got nothing but good things to say about them - good prices and the people there are really friendly and they'll do everything to earn your business.

    Its probably better than whey, whey is the best value but quality wise I'm thinking egg is the best.
