    Whey, Egg, and Casein Reviews


    I ordered about 15 lbs of protein last week and received it in about 5 days or so (including the weekend). Included in my order were samples of the Trutein, but I have not gotten around to trying most of those.

    Chocolate Whey Blend:
    Taste 9/10: great, full taste, but not overly sweet
    Mixability: 9/10: very few clumps when mixed with 10 oz of water

    Chocolate Casein:
    Taste 10/10: Best. Casein. Ever.
    Mixability 10/10: Again, best mixing for a casein product and it wasn't nearly as thick as most

    Egg:
    Taste 8/10: has a tad of egg aftertaste, but not huge
    Mixability 10/10: very instantized

    The egg protein is unflavored and I added it to both the whey and casein proteins.

    Chocolate Trutein:
    Taste 8/10: almost too sweet for my liking, but a good chocolate flavor
    Mixability 8/10: some clump issues, but nothing really bad

    I gave my samples to my fiancee to try to find a protein for her to use. I'll put up her review over the nest few days.

    Nice Rodja..I ordered 6 lbs of vanilla blend and love it. It is awesome in water and off the charts in almond milk. I also have the samples and will be giving reviews soon.

    I've been pondering switching to casein only, may give them a try.

    Would flavored egg white be something you're interested in? Most customers, it seems, use the egg white to enhance another protein drink, but if people are interested in a flavored egg protein to use alone, we could do that.

    Thanks for the review Rodja.

    I was upset about a comment in an original Trutein thread, but it was explained by the owner. I want to get a tub of Casein from somewhere, I am just not set on the brand yet. But ill consider your review of their casein as being a good indicater that they might be worth checking out. Hmmm....
    Just inject.

    I'll be honest: I am really impressed with what I've gotten and the egg protein is perfect.

    I did the math on the egg protein - assuming ~3g per egg white, 1lb of this stuff is equivalent to ~10 dozen eggs. For $7/lb if you get 3lb, that's cheap.

    I've already told several friends about you guys. The protein market has gotten bad lately and finding a quality, reliable protein source has been at the top of my to-do list over the past month. Mission accomplished.

    crazyfool405, if you order the sample pack from our website I'll throw in a casein. please keep in mind the price of the sample pack is refunded on your next order.

    You definitely be good to go with the whey isolate on sale at the moment. You most likely would be good to with Trutein as well, since about 90% of the whey and milk proteins in the blend from the triple-nanofiltered isolate forms.

    I would love to see a flavored egg white but keep it basic like choc/vanilla so it can be added to others. I am a huge fan of egg protein and would like to have some to add to my night time protein and/or for my pre-workout shake. I am looking forward to the TruTein samples I have coming my way; this looks to be an excellent alternative to ON Pro Complex.

    oufinny: we'll be doing flavored egg in a few months, probably as we get further along into NutraPlanet and other retailers.

    I like to think that Trutein is superior to Pro Complex because it contains casein, nothing is hidden in a proprietary blend, there's no maltodextrin (which is in Pro Complex) and there's no sodium (Pro Complex contains 10% of our Daily Value of sodium). We unfortunately consume too much salt in our diets, and sodium leads to heart disease and all sorts of other bad things. I think you'll be pleased with the Trutein samples.

    Everyone's raving about the vanilla and the chocolates have little chocolate flavor burst crystals which are really unique!

    I'm definitely interested in the flavored egg protein.

    Nice job with the reviews, Rod.

    Chocolate Banana: too strong of a banana flavor, but still mixed well.

    Chocolate-dipped Strawberry: she loved this one and I shall be ordering it very soon.

    Thank you sir for the review. I ordered casein chocolate and the trutein peanutbutter chocolAte. Both look solid and your review has only made me impatient for them to Arrive. I'm really hoping to find my new staple protein company and I will post a review when mine arrives.

    Thanks again Rodja as I am also looking for a protein for the woman. She is more picky than I.
