    thick proteins?


    I love how giant sports mixes nice and thick. The flavors are limited though. Anyone who has had giant sports and other proteins, can you recommend any that mix as thick? Protean, phase 8, up 2.0, etc?

    Thanks!

    I believe Giant Sports released a chocolate pb flavor a week or two ago.

    With any protein if you add less water or milk, it will be thicker.

    Phase 8 I've found mixes thick but that's generally the case with all slower digesting proteins in my eyes..

    myofusion is pretty thick as well. i hate thick proteins though. syntha 6 is fairly thin, ON 100% whey is thin as well.

    edit: you want a thick protein? 2 scoops of serious mass by ON!

    I already have some on the way..it is available.

    As for thick proteins, Casein generally is thicker (a scoop of a straight Casein can mix crazy thick).

    I prefer thick shakes and XF UP and Iforce Protean mix up pretty thick IME.

    I-Force Protean is fairly thick, not the thickest like 100% casein, but for a whey protein, def on the thicker side of the norm; not like many others I've tried. Def happy about the thickness.

    That surprises me. I used to run steel cut oats thru a coffee grinder and add it to my protein shakes, and thought it had a thickening effect. It could be that I ran it all through a blender and that whipped some air into and made it seem thicker, sort of like McD's shakes. This was usually with ON Gold Standard or ON Pro Complex.

    Some formulas contain thickening agents such as Xanthan Gum. It's dirt cheap, like around $7 for 6 ounces.

    That's a good point. You could probably go with gelatin or even tapioca as well. Maybe instant chocolate pudding if you're not worried about sugar and extra calories.

    Trutein choco-pb + almond milk makes this extremely thick pudding. So good. That stuff is thick.

    Also, ultimate flurry cookies and cream is insanely thick.

    Interesting, I've never had issues with making any protein thick with ice cream or oats.

    Just got my order of Phase 8 yesterday and it mixes like concrete, you'll love it! It's so thick that I don't have to use milk, it mixes thick and tasty with just water. I feel full for hours with this stuff.

    I liked the thickness from MGN whey for my pudding treat. Protean worked well too.

    I just started using Nitro-Peak by Inner Armour that I picked up at a great price and it is a mixed
    blend of proteins and it mixes up thick in water and I have 3 flavors choc, strawberry, and vanilla
    and choc is the best flavor of the 3.
