One of the best Whey Protein formulas with no artificial sweeteners!
January 24, 2013
For starters, let me say that both my husband & I use 100% Berries & Whey Powder. We have both used a variety of whey proteins as well as plant proteins over the years. I do a lot of research on the products we use, as he is VERY picky when it comes to textures and flavors of things, and I don't like added artificial ingredients that can be harmful to a healthy nutrition & workout program. We like that this has not artificial sweeteners in it and also has the additional nutrition of the antioxidants in the berries that are part of this formula. We usually start the day off by just adding 2 scoops with 8oz water in a shaker bottle with an ice cube. 100% Berries & Whey Powder mixes very well. You can also just mix it with a fork in a glass. If you have the time, blending it with some coconut or almond milk (or regular milk if you don't like the others), ice with a few slices of banana and or any other fruit you enjoy, makes an awesome smoothie! You can use frozen fruit too. Convenient to keep on hand as well as same nutritional value as fresh. This really fills you up and keeps the cravings down especially if you are watching your carb intake. I do notice the difference when I don't drink one in the morning. We also like to dink some before we train, as we do martial arts at night and you definitely don't want a "full belly" of food before that. The other great thing about this product beside the price, is that it is gentle on the stomach! It is on the sweeter side, but you can always add water.
Pros:Nutritional content, quality protein, mixes well, satisfying, great value.
Cons:A bit sweet, but can be diluted.
