    Pro Rated vs. Optimum 100% Whey


    Comparsion is for 10lbs Bags!


    Pro Rated 100% Whey

    Servings per 10lbs. -161
    Calories -120
    Protein - 22g
    Cholesterol- 0mg
    Fat- 4g
    Saturated Fat- 1g
    Carbs- 4g
    Sugar- 2

    NOTES:

    Pro Rated is 98% Lactose Free as well as asperatame free

    Price: $38 per 10lbs


    Optimum 100% Whey

    Servings per 10lbs. - 155
    Calories - 110
    Protein - 22g
    Cholesterol- 25mg
    Fat- 2g
    Saturated Fat- 1g
    Carbs- 2g
    Sugar- 1g

    DPS Price: $48.99


    **I thought this was pretty interesting. Pro Rated's Taste is much better and less chalky in my opinion. As for the vitamins and minerals, they were also very comparable. The edge I believe goes to Pro Rated for the $10 price difference and 6 more servings per bag.

    Edge goes to Pro-Rated in the numbers game. Still have some Optimum left but will try pro-rated when I run out and then see who the true winner is.

    Hey yellowjacket its cholesterol free. Thats very important for us guys who are taking in multiple servings a day. Very nice!


    EAS is terrible. Its got 45 percent of daily allowance of cholesterol in ONE freaking serving. Not good for people who take in a lot of protein powder

    Based on the Following Pro rated label claims are way off I would tend to think if this is so, how much can you trust their company. 

    1 pound = 453.6 grams
    1 Gram carbs and protein is 4 calories
    1 Gram fat is 9 calories

    Pro Rated 100% Whey

    Servings per 10lbs. -161
    Calories -120
    Protein - 22g
    Fat- 4g
    Carbs- 4g
    30 Grams per serving
    161 servings per container
    30 * 161 = 4830
    4830 / 454(1 pound) = 10.63 pounds

    claim 120 cals
    actual
    (4g fat*9) + (4g carb*4) + (22g protein*4) = 140
    36 + 16 + 88 = 140

    20 Calories off is pretty big

    assuming 0 filler so no flavoring is 151 servings so that is off
    and all protein powder contains some flavoring so these lable claims are way off.

     

    NOTES:

    Pro Rated is 98% Lactose Free as well as asperatame free

    Price: $38 per 10lbs


    Optimum 100% Whey

    Servings per 10lbs. - 155
    Calories - 110
    Protein - 22g
    Fat- 2g
    Carbs- 2g


    26 Grams per serving avg
    26 * 155 servings container = 4030
    4030 / 454 = 8.876 lbs
    So there is filler in this

    Calorie count

    (2g Carbs * 4 = 8) + (22g protein *4) + (2g fat * 9) = 114
    8 + 88 + 18 = 114
    Assuming for some of these they round up for fat and protein the 4 cal diff is explainable

    Call me stupid but your math is correct but for some odd reason I went through 5lbs (77-80) servings and got exactly 80 servings (its not that odd that I know if you're wondering, 80 days of whey in a row is right around 11 1/2 weeks) Maybe it all has to do with the size of the scoop you put in, etc. I do however find it interesting that they dont do what Optimum does and list is just as that "155-161 Servings" instead of a flat number because there are far too many variables. Also assuming they round up on their macronutrient ratios, the calories are probably closer to 125-130. Which still is 5-10 cals off, but to me, thats not a big deal, but then again, you do have a very valid point.

    Pro rated sounds like an awsome deal. I checked it out, the shipping is $4.95 for the 10lbs of whey. Good deal, all around.
    For those of you who bought it, let us know hoe you liked it. taste? mixing? ect...If its the same quality as optimum I'll go for it. I'm a cheap mofo. LOL!!! always trying to save $$$

    Mixes great in a shaker cup. Ive tried it in milk and water and both mix very weel. Like I said before, taste is unheard of for a whey supplement.

    Looks to be the standard price, just such a good deal that the marketing does have a kind of "get em while theyre hot" flavor... but what ad doesn't? I'd like to see some quality tests on em, but hell I'm sure they're up to snufff. When you order, since it's two 5lbers, can you specify two diff flavors (ie one choc one van?)

    Just saw this and realized something: if you have more than one scoop at a time (as many do) you're looking at at least an 8g fat vs 4g difference. This may account for the noticable taste change between the two that you all seem to notice. Will probably order some myself soon and get in on the savings. But, just something to think about.

    Anyone try the vanilla as well as Optimum Vanilla? I like Optimum's so I usually get that one. CytoWhey (Cytosport) is another one I like for a changeup (much sweeter).

    Just tried my Pro-rated protien yesterday.......It mixed and tasted awsome, I may have found my new favorite protein! thanks for the heads up YJ!...........and the price can't be beat!

    I got the vanilla and the taste reminds me of the Cytosport cytogainer vanilla. Beleive me it tastes really good.
