protein powders

Recommended Posts

I like to put protein powder in my smoothies. I don't think about it too much and usually pick up whatever I find at Walmart.I was in a GNC one day and they had a buy one get one so I picked up two bags. Here is how the two compare:

Pro Performance Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60

3 scoop serving size

calories 280

total fat 1 g

Cholesterol 15 mg

total carbs 7g

dietary fiber 7 g

sugars 2 g

protein 60 g

EAS Soy Protein

1 scoop serving size

calories 170

total fat 1.5 g

cholesterol 0 mg

total carbs

dietary fiber 0 g

sugars 17 g

protein 20 g

I think being able to increase protein is good and I will still buy the EAS. I was just surprised at the differences.

IMO, it's the sugar that should be alarming.

You should try to find something <8g sugar.

Too much, as they add it to increase the taste ... but that's all it does.

And 17g is definitely on the very high end.

I agree. The GNC definitely wins on sugars, only 2g.

what about taste, petra? are these vanilla flavors?

also, the gnc one says 7g carb, 7g fiber, 2g sugar.. doesnt make sense, as sugars are always include in the total carb count.. is that a typo?

I also use the EAS and you can get vanilla flavored. It is as good as any of them that I have tried.

I'll check out the sugars again. I may have typed wrong. I got the vanilla so that I can mix it with whatever I want. They also have chocolate, cookies and cream and so on. I'm almost out of the GNC so I'm going to replenish this week. Anyone want me to be a taste guinea pig? I'll try some others if you want.

OK, I checked and I was wrong in what I wrote down. I should have written

Total carbohydrate 7g

dietary fiber 1 g

sugars 2 g

I'm using them as part of a meal. I use them in a smoothie and I have half of the smoothie and a yogurt or Fullbar for breakfast and the same for lunch.
