This is the cheaper version of their protein, still hot don't get me wrong, I purchased 5 tubs but I think it's around 10g less protein per portion.
What's it for ?
It's a good price for 20grams of protein per scoop the 30gram versions are expensive

Haha I actually prefer it to some other well known brands out there
Are these products any good? Do they actually work? Will I look like Rambo? What's wrong with a normal high protein diet of eggs / chicken / fish??

I was a fan of MaxiMuscle for years but then stumbled across the question of what percentage of the product is protein (Carbs+fat being relatively cheap and available easily from other foods) Maximuscle products are low, around just 30-40% Protein (the 30g protein per serving product is a 70g serving) Thanks to a HUKD I recently switched to MyProtein and bought in a sale their 'cheap' protein product which is 80% protein (5kg for £30 - serving size being just 25g Maximuscle tubs are only 750g -1kg) - MaxiNutrition as they are now known are pulling the wool over consumers eyes by advertising their 20g or 30g of protein per serving when you consider how large their servings are. I hope this info helps someone and am keen to know where the other commenter can get grass fed organic whey at such a low price please?

I think it it personal preference, if you can get the suggested 0.8-1g of protein per pound of lean bodyweight from whole foods, chicken, eggs and fish as you suggest then that its the way to go. However, if you are so big that you can simply not consume enough protein that way or not so big but need to supplement on days when you cannot prepare whole food then they may have a place in your diet. Are they better than whole food? I say no, some will say you need fast digested protein such as whey after training and first thing in the morning after your nights 'fast'. Like most foodstuffs opinion varies and is surely driven for many by the billion pound supplement industry.



Some people don't have the chance to prepare, take and eat high protein meals all day every day. Protein shakes are just a convenient form of protein and of course aren't necessary to get bigger/stronger.
That being said, there are much cheaper proteins available. Although this is a good price for the brand, you're just paying for the name.

Yes, there are many common beliefs that all unsurprisingly require more protein and products. Even the 1g per lb is a myth seemingly promoted by the supplement industry. Studies suggest it's about 0.82g, but even that would be conservative as this was found in elite/professional body builders.
Like someone said you are paying for the name here. You can always find much cheaper and same quality whey protein online from various different websites such as myprotein, gonutrition or my favorite bulkpowders. Buy a sample pack from different websites and find flavours you love then start saving a boat load of money.


Nutrition for the maxinutrition posted here is 50g serving, 20 protein, 22 carbs.

Nutrition for online suppliers: 50g serving, 40g protein, 2.5g carbs. That's double the protein and a lot fewer carbs.




Also if you buy from bulk suppliers you can always find discount codes for new/old customers, cashback and many sales to take advantage of.

​And where is the evidence that grass fed is better or even organic is better

​Exactly. There is nothing wrong. In fact normal diet is more than enough to build muscle. If you can cover your energy requirements with a balanced diet you will cover protein requirements

Yeh, I'm not quite sure where all this sugar is coming from. I can only assume the lactose.

Whoops
I cannot take anything with whey in it (due to intolerance issues), & being a pescetarian there is only so much protein you can gain from "oily" fish before it becomes a chore to include fish in every meal, so I use this product in Smoothies; but only buy it when it is on offer (or significant voucher codes are available):
