With rising protein costs I am looking for some alternatives, and finally decided to try out by LG Sciences.
Lets look at the ingrediant Label:
Betaine Anhydrous, Cocoa Powder, , Lecithin, Inulin, Natural And Artificial Flavor, Sucralose, Acesulfame K, Protein Blend (Genus Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, , , Milk Protein Isolate, Egg Protein Isolate)
This is a good ingredient profile. Its not all high end expensive whey isolate, but to tell you the truth all I ever really care for in plain concentrate anyways at minimum. In my opinion expensive proteins are a bit overrated for the money you pay. The amino acid profile in impressive, and the Genus protein is one of a kind in the market today. "Genus protein contains advanced poly-phenols that can help the body thermogenesis, but we've also added in Betaine which has been used in food products to support the conversion of nutrients to muscle vs. fat.*" Im always looking to slim down so this is a definite bonus.
The taste is pretty good. It taste natural (i used chocolate flavor) and the ingredients are simple. The only reason for the lower score is that its a bit liquidy and I only use water for my protein. I can make a creamier texture by reducing the amount of water, but then I have less of a drink to enjoy. Still...If there are doubts about the flavor still because of the original genus only protein, I would say there is nothing to worry about. It tastes good, and smells good. Its not perfect but I like it. Just wish LG can work on improving the thickness more than anything.
I love the bottles. Every company on the planet makes bottles that are bigger than the amount of protein it had to give the illusion of more product. LG sciences makes the perfect fit. 5lbs fits almost to the top of the bottle, and is more compact to fit in my limited space. The design looks well and modern.
Straight up, I give this an 11. At a time where protein costs are going through the roof, LG Sciences created a protein with an impressive profile and have managed to keep the costs at under $30 (only $29.99 where i shop). This price is for a whole 5lbs container, also at a time where protein companies are making their old 5lb containers 4lbs here and there.
I cannot say how happy I am with this product. This is a new staple protein of mine, and will help me save money so I can purchase other bodybuilding supplements in my budget. In my opinion its the best deal on the market, and its everything I need in a protein.
Overall Rating is high because of its tremendous value:
Im not kidding, I will repeat myself, This is the best value on the market for protein. Im sure we will see it on sale time to time, and that would be straight crazy.
