Hope it tastes good as I've bought 4 tubs. Last time it was £25 was on Prime Day. Much cheaper than the normal £40+ per tub!

if its 90% protein why does a 31.5g serving only have 24g of protein? that sounds like standard 80% Whey rather than a 90% isolate?

edit: just read, its a blended powder rather than a standard Whey powder.

Anyone tried this flavour? I loved the chocolate one.

Would this be a suitable alternative to The Protein Works Diet whey isolate 97? I use this as it causes less bloating and related side effects :(

This is considerably cheaper than TPW.

As GOld standard has some bcaa's, can it still be used with scuavation xtend bcaas powder ?

Thanks in advance

It mixes well and goes down easily. No bloating issues here. Been through around 6 or 7 tubs. Maybe give it a shot with 1 tub

I see there are so many varieties of these things...does this compares better than Holland &Barrett types where it's buy one get one for a penny? If they are the same stuff then H&B looks good, if not the same then this looks like the best deal.

£92 for the same size in a different flavour @ H&B oO Guess that's how the buy one get one for a penny works X)

There is no harm in using it in conjunction with Scivation Xtend.I personally use Sciv during workout and TPW Whey 80 post workout with L Glutamine in it. Bloating can also be caused by less water consumption or dairy in diet

Good advice.
Also trying lowering carbs for a day or two to see if that has any effect on boating.

I've had this flavour, it is truly awful.

No bias, I buy Gold Standard Vanilla by the 5kg bag, but this flavour is terrible.

Contains Acesfulme, so a no from me. Got Iritis and nearly lost sight in one eye the last time I had Optimum Gold. I stick with USN now

USN premium contains Acesfulme K as well. As do the majority of protein powders.
I am not a nutritional expert but it certainly looks like Gold standard contains less 'junk' ingredients than the USN premium.

From the USN website:
MyoMatrixTM Whey protein isolate and concentrate blend, Maltodextrin, Cocoa powder (5%) (only In Chocolate variant), MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) oil (from palm fat), Flavour, Colour: Red Beet Powder, Stabilisers: Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), ZymaTechTM Lactazyme powder (Lactase), Non-nutritive sweetener blend (Sucralose, Acesulfame-K). - See more at: http://uk.usn-sport.com/en/whey-protein-premium#sthash.6Lj0sGzi.dpuf

Optimum Gold:
Protein blend (whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, whey peptides), artificial flavour, lecithin, acesulfame potassium, aminogen, lactase.

Yes! I have this flavour and I wouldn't recommend it. Doesn't taste anything like rocky road and has a weird after taste.

Genuine question: why is this popular when it's essentially £56.81 for 5kg of 76% whey protein (and a market leader even when it's not discounted and £50 for 2.2kg)?

5kg of Rocky Road whey concentrate (80%) at MyProtein is £40 with the 30% off codes that are constantly about, or even less during promotions (£38 a few weeks ago, with 5kg unflavoured whey concentrate being not much over £30). I'm sure it's a similar situation at other direct sellers like Bulk Powders / Bodybuilding Warehouse etc.

This 76% protein costs more than 5kg of flavoured whey isolate (90%) after discounts.

Is it viewed as being higher quality (e.g better amino acid profile) or are you simply paying for brand (endorsements, advertising etc)? Had a chat a couple of years back with one of the Optimum Nutrition fitness 'personalities' who was a mate of a mate. He claimed that all the whey sold in the UK was waste product from a single cheese manufacturer in Ireland and that the more expensive brands are better quality because they are the first whey extracted, similar to with olive oil having multiple pressings, starting with virgin and with the product becoming progressively cheaper and less desirable. He makes a living from his employer selling the stuff, who clearly have a vested interest in having a narrative about quality of product rather than value added via branding.

Is there any consensus on this?

Not sure what is the bigger punt. The known brand or the who the hell are they.
