Meal Replacement Protein products
I have been a long-time user of VPX Micellean Superfood. I like the product because it contains high-quality protein along with some quality (complex) carbs. Also, it isn't very expensive. It is the only product from VPX that I buy. It appears that the company has stopped making it since it is becoming harder and harder to find.
Can someone recommend a replacement for me? Most of the MRPs I find have malodextrin for carbs and I am looking for something better.
Mass Meal by ErgoPharm looks very interesting. It is priced reasonably and is made by a reputable company. Anyone tried?
EAS Myoplex Deluxe would probably work but it is too expensive.
IntakePerformance by Instone might work. Has anyone tried?
Lean Mass Complex by Prolab would work, except that the primary protein used is concentrate and I would prefer higher quality protein.
I am also looking into Allthewhey and Protein Factory. Any recommendations here?

Quoted from Greg @ VPX Sports regarding this issue back on 01/09/06.
No these products have not been discontinued. We changed our contract manufactures and made some changes to the nutritional content on all of our proteins. We are now going to be using 21% Glyco Macro Peptides. This will make for an even higher quality protein.
Sorry for the delay. We are very upset about the time it is taking this new company to produce our products.

My choice is Champion Nutrition low-carb MRP's which can be found for as little as $22 for 20 packets.

I used to use Optimum Nutritions MRP, which for the price/benefit is a great choice. I got tired of all of the flavors, so I started using Lean Mass Complex Cinnamon Oat flavor, and I think its awesome. Best tasting I have tried so far.

Gotta agree with the Lean Mass Complex Cinnamon Oat. I have been using the Prolab stuff for a while and it is all good. I even like the vanilla. Just compare the ingredient list to other MRP's....it is all whole foods and stuff you can understand. Lots of quality stuff in there!

I have tried the Instone MRP. It's kinda pricey but it is well worth your money. At first I did not like it, it says to put 16oz of water and it was way too thick for me. So, then I put in 20oz of water and it was night and day. I do use them but I only use them if I'm not getting any other fat source in my diet for the day. It does have a lot of healthy fat's in it.

Tried a sample of the Lean Mass Complex by Prolab as well. Taste is seriously awesome but the higher whey concentrate levels gave me gas to no end.
You could get something like Muscle Milk and mix in your own oats or other carbs. I like MM's protein profile and there is no beating the taste. Price could definitely be lower though.

MM is pretty damn cheap if you ask me. Under 17 dollars on some websites. I'm actually trying Mass Meal by Ergopharm due to a certain sale and I really like it. Great taste, but not as thick in consistancy compared to MM. When Lean Mass Matrix (or whatever it's called now) first came out a few years ago, I gobbled that **** up. The chocolate and cinnamon-oatmeal were really good.

I have started with Ergopharm's Mass Meal and like it very much. Very good taste and solid ingredients.

Thats what I am using now, just adding a extra scoop of Whey in it to bump up the Protein intake.

S.A.N. Infusion is a pretty good meal replacement. pretty similar to VPX micellean in terms of ingredients. the only problem with it is that it is pricey. i make it cost effective by taking half servings and blending with milk and ice. the vanilla caramel swirl has to be one of the best tasting powders ive ever tried.

Core MRP or Ultramet are both really good econimical choices.

I was looking at San Infusion and I was wondering what flavor everyone thinks is best?

I concur on the vanilla caramel Infusion...

I have still yet to see any feedback on the Core MRP by Core Nutritionals. Much cheaper than Infusion and uses only oats and barley for its carb sources.

when I use them I'll use Lean Mass matrix cinnamon oatmeal, that's a lifesaver, I'll add a scoop of ATW chocolate every time I feel I'm not going to get my next meal on time.
