    Anabolic Innovations Chocolate Peanut Butter is the best I've had. It's very reasonably priced at $25.99 for 5 lbs. and you're also supporting a board sponsor

    I use the 2 mentioned above, mostly AI's Isolate.
    But Dymatize Elite Whey is another good quality whey protein and is a good price. $24.95 for a 5lb jug. It also comes in a lot of different flavors. And you are also supporting a board sponsor.

    Doesnt anybody like muscle milk? I didnt start making gains until I started drinking that stuff. One scoop first thing in the morning and one scoop after a workout.
    I also use MHP's probolic-sr 12hour time release one scoop before bed.
    I guess these are more expensive though.

    Muscle Milk tastes good, but there is a lot of fat in it. So I don't use it. I see they have the Light version now, but I will stick with AI's and ON's.

    ON's is cheaper. The ON Gold Standard Whey is $40-50 for a 10 lb bag. The comparable AI product, Whey Protein Isolate, is $40 for a 5 lb bag. Plus, IMO the ON Gold is better because it also contains some hydrolyzed whey protein (which absorbs more quickly and efficiently) whereas the AI does not. (Plus ON also contains digestive enzymes AminoGen and lactase... not sure about AI.)

    If you're going to spend $40 for 5 lb of the AI, you could buy 4.4 lb of ON's top-of-the-line protein, Pro Complex, for the same price. This I think is a clear choice, since the Pro Complex not only contains the whey protein isolate in AI but also egg protein, glutamine peptides, extra BCAAs, and hydrolyzed whey.

    In summary, there's nothing wrong with AI protein. But you really cannot go wrong, either pricewise or qualitywise, with ON. IMO, ON is in a class by itself.

    I amend my last post. I see that AI does offer a 10lb of its Whey Blend for $48. This is a very good deal and comparable to the price on 10lb of ON Gold. I'd still go with the ON Gold due to the hydrolyzed whey and digestive enzymes, though...

    Hell yeah. No point in buying it soley on content if you can't choke it down A lot of the proteins are close in their ingrediants as well as their amino acids etc. The things that set them apart are taste, mixability and whether or not they make your tummy go rumbly

    I'm with Mmowry on this. I mean if it tastes like fermented horse urine, then avoid it... but most of the protein powders range from "tolerable" to "delicious", and as long as you can drink it without gagging, who cares about taste? If I wanted something delicious, I would be drinking a root beer float (or a Budweiser ) instead of a protein shake.

    That said, just about ON protein tastes OK with water and pretty damn good with milk. Not sure about AI.

    Did someone say beer? Drinking alcohol lowers Test levels.....but I don't care. It tastes great, actually much better than any protein powder. New additions to my stash, Left hand Brewing Company-Milk Stout and Rogue-Chocolate Stout. I wonder how that Milk Stout would taste with Kashi cereal?

    Yeah I know but Ive been downing nasty tasting stuff for so long that every protein Ive taken tastes like candy.In everyones defense candies deliciosity(made that up)varies greatly.

    As far as mixability goes Ive long since moved to the frame of mind that shaker cups save misery.I have 1 at work and a couple at home to save me stress.

    I just ordered some ON gold whey and now I'm wondering if I should stick with this sustained release protein for my pre bed shake.
    Do sustained release protein powders work?
    I dont see how we can keep the protein from being absorbed and keep it available to be absorbed later.

    "Sustained release" proteins are generally just casein proteins. While whey is absorbed quickly over 1-2 hours, cassein is naturally absorbed and assimilated more slowly over 6-8 hours. Any casein protein powder or casein-based food (like cottage cheese) will work, so don't bother spending huge amounts of money on a fancy "sustained release" formulation.

    I personally use ON Casein and/or cottage cheese before bed.

    Cottage cheese huh? Yuk.
    I guess I read the label and consume as many servings as is necessary for my intended protein intake?
    If I had been consuming 33gms of "sustained release" protein can I replace it with 15gms whey and 20gms yukkie cottage cheese protein? Or do I need to eat all of my girlfriends cottage cheese?
    disclaimer: i've never tried cottage cheese. It might taste good. (insert puking smiley face here)

    The taste varies a lot by brand. The small curd with at least a little fat tastes better IMO. And adding jalapenos and salsa helps as well.

    Sounds reasonable. Also note that the protein naturally in milk is about 80% casein and 20% whey, so this is also good before bed.

    Iso-100 by Dynatise. Just as good as vp2 with the amino acid profile and easy to digest , if you have stomach issues with wpc. good taste. Ive went though a bottle of berry, im on peavh now, and i received chocolate and vanilla, for XmAS=). 5 lbs tub cost 35.99 i think. Just as good as vp2. Look at the Amnio Acid profile. and compare it to any brand out there, and if another wpi protein product can beat it please post.I prefer Wpi over wpc. but i havnt seen any WPC that beat Iso-100 Amino acid profile

    TP's new flavors are pretty good and you decide what goes in the blend, so there are no fillers or additives that you do not want/need.

    Well my friend Crowler said that anybody who hasn't done so yet can try up to three flavors of his protein for $1. And then he told me that your $1 will be refunded on your first purchase & he will give you a 10% discount!

    It is alright. For the price you are paying and the muscle gains I have got if any, it is not worth the money. IMO. Plus I felt more like it was a placibo effect. I have no way to prove that it really works. Vp2 seems to be decent as well. Optimium Nutrition is a joke. There ABS product is a joke as well. They market towards two differnt audiances.
