    Canadian Whey Review: Houseman/Vantedge Nutrition's Vanilla & Chocolate concentrate


    ^^^ This is a new Canadian whey supplier, owned and operated by our very own Houseman. They're not set up for retail shipments yet, but he is selling pre-opening samples if you contact him.

    I was getting sick of paying local store prices and I didn't want to pay customs duties or cross-country shipping for my protein powder. Enter houseman... he told me about a company he is starting that is producing and packaging whey concentrates and isolates for the Canadian market. He sent me a few sample packs and they were excellent; definitely good enough for me to try an order. $5 / lb for concentrate is half the price of the best store in town.


    Review: Vantedge Nutrition's Whey Concentrate


    Taste, Vanilla (9/10): Really a quality vanilla flavor here. I wouldn't say it is like a freshly opened Tahitian vanilla bean.. more like a birthday cake. Yup, tastes like birthday cake. Sort of like Betty Crocker vanilla icing out of the tub. Easily one of the best, if not the best, vanilla whey I've tried.

    Taste, Chocolate (7/10): It is a good chocolate taste, just a bit weak for me. I mentioned this to houseman and he said they will certainly look into this before the final production. If they don't change it, he said there will also be flavor packs available for those that like it stronger. I'm sure many would be satisfied with how it is.. but it isn't quite to the potency of Hershey's chocolate milk. I would buy it again because it is a quality cocoa flavor-- it doesn't smell cheap or "off" like some brands.

    Mixability (10/10): Simply impressive. I don't think I've had another brand that mixes so easily. 10 seconds of shaking and it is super smooth. I bet it would work with a spoon, but I use shaker cups. Amazing mixability.

    Value (9/10): Excellent price, even with shipping. I wish the zip bags were a bit higher quality, and there is no scoop. No big deal.

    Overall Rating: 9/10

    >>Seriously guys, i just went today and forked over 60$ for 5lbs of sensation 81 (ultimate nutrition) Which really insnt that good.

    Since I got my shipment, I tossed out 1/2 a tub of undrinkable banana PVL this morning. Normally I would save it somewhere in a cabinet in case I ever ran out, but the thought of drinking it again wasn't appetizing at all. It was twice the price of Vantedge's product.


    ps. I'm liking the chocolate the more I drink it.. but wifey agreed, needs more choco-power

    We're working on a probiotic version of our Isolate right now. Not likely to be ready anytime soon and have to really educate people on the benefits of it over regular isolate but there is an application for it being needed no doubt.

    It's especially great for people (not just people who train and workout) who have immune illnessness.

    OK I thought of something that will turn the supplement industry on it's head with innovation.

    Why not include 3 different sized scoops instead of 3 of the same?

    22g, 30g, 45g for example.

    Different size shakes for different size people? If you're going to include 3 scoops, why bother with 3 of the same size? No one offers a 45g scoop, but that is my normal size shake. You would singlehandedly save me the hassle of double dipping each time I had to drink my whey. Thank you for your support.

    LOL.

    I agree on the one, larger scoop but three difference sizes? Seems odd.

    Maybe I'll put out a survey and see many would find this useful

    Got your addy. Go ahead and delete it.

    No different than what might be in other protein powders.

    Best I can do is send you samples packs of both vanilla and chocolate and see how you respond?

    That in itself isn't strange at all.

    Hit houseman up.. after living with the products for a while, I'd have to say it is the best whey protein powder I've ever used. It mixes immediately and tastes great. The chocolate has grown on me quite a bit, I'd probably give it an 8/10 now.

    I'll be making another order in a few weeks.. you can't beat $5 CDN a pound for this quality.

    Question: How would you feel about Milk Protein Concentrate (80%) instead of Casein?

    Would likely be priced close to that of Whey Concentrate

    What is the mixibility like? I haven't read much about it, but I remember one review lately saying TP's MPC turned to goo if you let it sit for a few minutes after mixing. I don't mind having a casein blend that is a little chalky... so if the MPC is at least as good as a casein blend as far as texture, I would be good with that.

    Right now my favorite non-whey is Ultra Peptide vanilla.. if it compares favorably to that, I'm in.

    Casesin truly is a great product but given the price of pure casesin (about $13/lb) it can get expensive very quickly and the Canadian market isn't as up to speed on these products as those in the US.

    But, MPC would be a suitable alternative for those looking for a slow absorbing, yet quality protein.

    Does it mix easily?
    Is the texture decent?
    Does it taste good?

    If your MPC gets three "YES" marks, then I'd buy it. I'm sure you'll try it before you sell it so you can give objective answers

    Got my protein today after much delay due to my old roomates bastardness.
    Just tried chocolate, will try vanilla later

    Taste: 8 out of 10

    Tastes WAY better than any other chocolate protein i have used

    Mixability: 10 out of 10

    Mixes no problem.. no chunks.. no lumps

    Value: 9 out of 10
    Better than anything else i can get for a comparible price, but shipping was a tad much

    Good stuff. you got yourself a repeat customer!

    Bulk Whey Protein Powder :: Bodybuilding and Athletic Nutritional Supplements from Vantedge Nutrition is a scam. I decided to order from them after knowing of them for awhile. They gladly took my money and never sent my product. No response by email and their voicemail box is full and has been for awhile. 1-877-876-6601 try it.

    RIP OFF!! save yourself some grief and go to reputable suppliers not fly by nighters like this guy.
