My goals are to build maximum muscle hypertrophy. I'm looking for a pure whey isolate, no fillers, thickening agents, as low as possible carb sugars, I'm looking to feed my muscle rather than my hips.
I'm happy to sacrifice taste and mouth feel for protein and nothing else. Your goals may be different.
Value for money is also a primary goal, as I'm consuming protein every 2.5 hours of the day
Products I've investigated within the last six months:
Mutant Whey 10LB $1.18 per serve
Balance Ultra Ripped $1.69 per serve
MUSCLEPHARM COMBAT 100% ISOLATE 5LB $1.54 per serve
R1 Protein $1.51 per serve
MUSCLETECH NITRO TECH CASEIN 2.2KG $1.54 per serve
MUSCLEPHARM COMBAT 100% CASEIN 1.8KG $1.98 per serve
Musclepharm Combat is a step up from Balance Ultra Ripped, has less in it, mostly just the stuff you need, it does seem to contain thickeners though, has good mouth feel (I don't need this), is better value for money than Balance Ultra Ripped, their marketing is good, it has a pretty label.
