High Protein Porridge Pot - only 29p @ B&M

64
Found 6th Sep 2015
Stumbled across these CNP Sky high protein porridge pots in B&M Redditch (both stores). Thought they were an absolute bargain at 29p - I can't find these cheaper than £1.25 online.

Just add water so great as a quick breakfast. 12.5g of protein per pot which is almost double than Special K pots (6.5g).

Also picked up a box of 5 sachets, fig and honey flavour for 29p.

    Protein free porridge for me, thanks!
    Not enough protein for me
    Normal Scott's oats are 11g/100g so a 50g serving made with milk would equal approx 10g. Remember that UK dietary guidelines recommend that an adult male only requires 55g/day
    Just get a big bag from supermarket about £1 and add some powder to it you can get 5kg for about 45 if you shop around.
    The saving you make over the year having it everyday would be much better than buying these pots at 29p yeah could handle that price but people who pay £1 each for these pots and argue convenience astound me keep wasting your money it's non of my business but just giving you my take on things.
    Same goes with protein bars make your own at home then freeze them.

    the porridge in tub isn't made with 50g oats though - only 35g total in it

    find porridge really heavy going so anything making less needed is good
    Can't be bad @ 29p,heated,but as previous comments,it's cheaper to make yer own protein bars(or do as I do,make merry at the feed stations during my many sportives)
    lol just lol if you think 12g of protein is a lot.
    My protein shakes contain 60 grams

    it contains as much sugar as it contains protein per pot..

    The good old 5 hdmi ports where am i going to plug my 2 spare usb dongles voting cold haha.
    But how much sugar per portion?
    It's not actually high protein though - 19g per 100g
    Normal oats, 17g protein per 100g

    So assume the 2g difference is from the whey powder, which will be about 85% protein, then there's probably 3g of whey isolate in each pot. Barely worth the bother, just eat half a spoonful more normal porridge. It wont have the sugar they put in these either so it'll end up better for you.

    Fine at 29p, they're probably cheaper than normal sachets. At £1.25 it's a massive con.

    Why would I care what the "UK dietary guidelines" are? Should my patriotism stretch to scientific bias?

    Based on what exactly?

    There is absolutely no science to back your statement.

    Whilst you do not need super high amounts of proteins and indeed, keeping protein sensible (2.5-3.0g per kg) allows a lot of headroom for carbs and fats and allows you to feel fuller and muscularly more rounded, whilst consuming enough protein for Muscle Protein Synthesis (e.g. muscle growth!).

    Studies to consider are the meta analysed studies below, which discuss this very issue and the results of over 152 studies!

    and optimal amounts to consume daily:

    60grams is way too much for a shake 30tops
    I drink 2 glasses of milk in the morning (13g protein) if I need the extra protein and eat whatever I like.

    But thats for a sedentary male. If you are exercising and its people who exercise that tend to be interested in protein targets, then the target is much higher.
    lol
    Well I picked these up last week in Slough. So they are around if you want them.

    Yeah, last I knew your body can only make use of around 30g per sitting, so it's just a waste if nothing else.

    That's a myth, it's more likely to be your entire day's worth on one sitting that'll be ineffective. Your body is very good at taking in amino acids and storing them. Unless you are consuming protein to excess, then you will be fine. Incidentally the evidence points to an intake of about 0.7-0.8g of protein per lb of body weight. Also the frequent meals/doses of protein throughout the day is another myth.
    I normally have a steak for breakfast, so the amount of protein in this is laughable.
    Add scoop of protein shake or peanut butter. Now ya talking

    aww diddums, you get your boulders cut up into itty bitty bite size pieces?
    Hmmm, doesn't porridge oats contain 6.5g per 50g - add 100ml milk and you have +4g protein, 10.5g anyway? Is it national and I will have a look

    Maybe that 's where health care professionals are going wrong, not enough protein in their diet's to fuel their tiny brains.
    These are highly processed, and as others have commented overpriced. Better to get jumbo oats, as your body gets more out of them and you get a giant bag of organic ones for the £2-3.
    Just soak them overnight in a pan and 5 minutes cook in the morning - simples.
