Question - For My Experts!!!!!
I have a question for you!!!!! What are BBers looking for in a Meal Replacement Shake? ie - Muscle Milk, as an example.
I am curious as to what qualities that you feel are the most important?
If you don't mind taking a moment to let me know, I would appreciate it.

Low fat, good taste without the follow up after taste. solid amount of vitamins and no filler ingrediants.

Muscle Milk is absolutely horrible.
Design one like Instone Intake Performance, or Prolab's Lean Mass Matrix.
You'll surely have a winner.

I would have to say, for me, it would need:
Quality Protein Source: (WPI, Micellar Casein, WPC, etc.) Just a good mix of both fast and slow absorbing protein
Good Taste:There's really no need to go exotic with these, just about any flavor ATW has come up with would suffice
Good Carbs: No Malto or Dextrose. Carbs coming from oat or brown rice sources. Also a healthy serving of fiber.
Good Fats: Just a good amount of flax or omega-3s. Only a couple grams for those watching fat intake.
Also, it would need to have a Macro breakdown of 40/40/20 P/C/F
Just me and my 0.02.

Built-in oats and flax? I'd buy that in a heartbeat. Just about the only two things I consistently add to my whey now.Originally Posted by UHCougar05

(I kid because I know him)
I think a decent MRP shake has to have carbohydrates which are low in GI, not proccessed, and aren't constituted fully by various types of gums (xantham, guar, etc.,) Couple that with a high quality protein and you'd make alot of people happy.
(Not me, I don't like shakes)

I like the idea of basing it on a 40-40-20 split
- quality range of proteins (starting with isolates and ending with caesen)
- quality carbs (oatmeal, supercarb-esque)
- fiber (insoluble and soluble)
- quality fat (flax-also adds fiber, enova)
- digestive enzymes
- a nice BCAA mix would be good
Now I say the above, basically a cheaper version of ergopharm - mass meal

I seperate my protein by absorbtion rates. I like to use a fast absorbing standard 50+gram (high in BCAAs) pure whey protein like Isopure during the day to get quick results, however before bed, absorption rates are less relevant, so I like to use a whey/egg albumen mix like Optimum Pro Complex due to the fact that it covers a more broad spectrum of amino's. Also I really like flavors that give you the option of mixing with either water or milk.
All in all though, these are the standards that I use.
(1) High amounts of protein (50+)
(2) High quality extraction/isolation methods.
(3) No Aspartame. (Sucralose is fine)
