50kg of protein per serving is very good. Much better than the measly 42g I get from the powder I'm using at the moment.

Jarrow tyne and wear

Not sure about nationwide
Just be careful for serving sizes on these! They suggest 3 scoops per serving which is almost 600 calories! Lots of carbs in them too. Good price if this is what you need! Heat added

yes but what kind of protein? what blend? what serving size?with or without BCAA? how much carbs? how much of that carb is sugar? its not as simple as "this is has x amount of protein and this has X> amount"
i hope i dont come across as rude its just important stuff to know as there is a lot of jargon and clever markettign techniques they use in the industry.

Yes but this is only about 16.5% Protein per 100gm as opposed to 80%+ with most protein powders. Plus it's 75% carbs... 230g per serving .
Has creatine in too.
People need to understand when something says X amount of protein per serving you need to look how big the serving size is. A decent protein powder should be around 80% protein so if a serving size is 50g then 40g serving is decent.
So many companies are making servings 100g and more, and people are shoutingwow 50g of protein. There just making the serving size bigger you need to look at percentages.

This is an All in One so if the carbs suit you that's fine but don't buy it just as a protein powder, it's not. As for creatine, creatine is cheap as chips on a decent website.

I'm not knocking the price it's decent and worth it but know what your buying.

229g of carbs. 49g sugar the rest maltodextrin which is just as bad as sugar. What a load of c###
Excellent as a post workout shake! Sugar and/or maltodextrin after a workout are ideal carbs (although preferably with some added ground oats)
Carbs are good!
Stop hating on carbs!

Not hating on carbs. I use dextrose post work out. But 229g of simple carbs per serving it's just plain stupid

Where are you getting 229g of sugar from?

One recommended serving is 150g (50g protein, 85g carbs, 4g fat and 11g creatine and BCAAs and vitamins.)

Sorry looked at the macros for a different product. So 85g of simple carbs then, that react exactly like sugar. 50 g of protein again to high.
Half a serving would be ideal as a post workout

Hi, I work at Home Bargains, this product is sold in pretty much all stores unless they're quite small, if you want to know if your local store has them just give them a call and ask if they have any in stock, the product code is 27017
This is junk. It is sugar with some protein.

600cals per serving makes 50g of protein fairly poor.
I'm taking optimum nutrition which is 240cals in 2 scoop but delivers 48g protein and 6g of carbs.

Thanks for pointing the serving/cals out.
230g per serving?

If you want to make a mass-gainer or need a recovery shake, just buy a 5kg bag of whey concentrate or isolate, and a couple of 5kg bags of powdered oats (maybe a small bag of short-chain carbs if you want a fast energy boost post work-out).

30g whey and 75g powdered oats

The oats 375cals, 6g fat (1g saturated), 46g carbs (<1g sugars), 8g protein, 8g fibre
Whey 124cals, 5.6g fat (3.7g saturated), 3g carbs (3g sugars), 25g protein

So thats 499 cals, 11.6g fat (4.7g saturated), 49g carbs (<4g sugars), 33g protein, 8g fibre.

5kg whey concentrate and 10kg powdered oats will set you back about £50, and for that you can make 150+ mass gainer shakes.

30p per shake, vs this at £1.12 per shake.

If you need the creatine, which this USN product has, then that's dirt cheap for a 250g bag (£3).
Brilliant deal. Especially for bulking. But I’m avoiding dairy and having a much more manageable digestive system in the process

Powdered oats have a high Gi rating so will react almost like sugar.

Yep - you've mentioned this before and it makes perfect sense; grinding the raw oats into powder increases the surface area enzymes can work on, so it can be digested into glucose at a faster rate, spiking blood sugar / insulin levels sooner after consumption, rather than the slow, long increase from intact raw oats.

What I can't find out is how 100g powdered oats compares to 100g glucose, maltodextrine etc in terms of rate of digestion.

I've seen people mentioning adding olive oil or flax seed oil to your powdered oat protein shakes to slow down the rate of digestion, but again, no information on the degree to which this slows down the process.

Either way, still way cheaper and probably a little healthier than the sugars in most commercial mass gainers.

I spike my insulin with Dextrose post work other then that I try not to. I used to add ground oats to my shakes and would get a insulin spike. I have added flax seeds and mct, they dampened the insulin effect but still spiked it. I ended up adding whole oats
