Best MRP?

i'm gonna start taking a MRP daily after i get home from college. I want one that tastes good, mixes ok in a blender and has an array of 'extras'. I would prefer one that has at least 2g of dietary fibre per serving. Also i would prefer one that isn't too expensive, any suggestions/recommendations?

Thankyou

    For price I don't think you'll beat All-in-one MRP's.
    Taste of the strawberry flavour is OK, haven't tried any others yet.
    Also I don't think it contains your required 2 grams dietary fibre, but it does contain a whole load of other extras.

    I've only started using MRP's recently so maybe some of the other members will have some more knowledge on the choice of products out there.

    lean mass matrix uses oats as the carb source while others use maltodextrin

    make your own mrp's much cheaper!!

    The carbs are actual complex carbs not maltodextin which is a complex carb but acts like a sugar.

    thanks people, John-when you mix the skim milk with the powder-is it thick like a MRP?

    Try Pro MR or Protoplex, both are good and the choc flava tastes good.

    Adil -
    NO, it's exactly the consistancy of normal milk.
    The benifit is the carbs in the milk have a low GI, they score 30 on the GI scale which is classed as low.
    And the protein is mainly casein, so both are a slowly digested ideal for a MRP.
    quote:
    6 tablespoons of skimmed milk powder in 500ml of skimmed milk.
    Protein (80% casein 20% whey) = 33.3g
    Carbs (GI of 30) = 51g

    I have been considering Lean Mass Matrix as I need to use an MRP with my diet when I am bulking but I dont want one pumped with Maltodextrin, would the mass matrix have a decent Gi level as is not supposed to use malto?

    My vote goes to ALL-IN-ONE - good value MRP at 90p a piece.
    There are only 15g of carbs in them so not much Malto - Whack a pint of milk in and I have just the right amount of carbs.
    Lean Mass Matrix does look good but the price is still too high IMO.
    John's idea is also good.

    Also, When you add powder to milk in enough quantities it does exactly thicken slightly, but not by a considerable amount.

    I've been using Cytodyne's Cytoplex for a long time as one or two of my 6-7 meals a day.

    Is Maltodextrin something I should steer clear of in my MRPs? It uses "Maltodextrin, Brown Rice Complex, Oat Fiber" as its carbohydrate complex.

    Usually I have one of them right after my lifting day workouts 20mins after my creatine (which is immediately after workout). From what I know, it would probably be best to have a cytoplex right after workout, and a prolab'esc mrp at other times, since Maltodextrin is high in the glycemic index; correct?

    So whats the scoop on Maltodextrin if I'm wrong? I've heard its a good carb source esp. after workouts. So much different opinions on this stuff out there. From what I've found, that Prolab MRP is the ONLY one I can find without any maltodextrin in it. If its truly something that shouldn't be in them, I'm surprised at this.

    Here's a list of all the cytoplex' ingredients:

    Cytoplex Protein Blend (Cross Flow Micro/Ultra Filtered Whey Protein Isolate {Beta Lactoglobulin 19,100 MW/50%, Alpha Lactalbumin 14,700 MW/20%, Glycomacropeptides 16,200 MW 20%, Immunoglobulin 95,000 MW/3%, Bovine Serum Albumin 65,000 MW/2%, Protease Peptone <1%, Lactoferrin, <1%, Lacto Peroxidase <1%}, Milk Protein Isolate, Egg Albumin, L-Tyrosine, Glutamine Peptides, Acetyl-L-Carnitine), Micro Ultra filtered Whey Protein Concentrate, Cytoplex Multi-Carb Blend (Maltodextrin, Brown Rice Complex, Oat Fiber), Cocoa Glucostatin-RFS (Guar Gum, Glucomannon {Hemi-Cellulose, Cellulose, Pectin Substance, Lignin}, Chitosan), Natural and Artificial Flavors, Di-Potassium Phosphate, Calcium Citrate, Magnesium Oxide, Tri-Calcium Phosphate, Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Choline Bitartrate, Acesulfame Potassium, Sucralose, Ascorbic Acid, D-Alpha Tococpheryl Acetate, Zinc Citrate, Ferrous Fumarate, Niacinamide, Copper Gluconate, Selenomethionine, Manganese Sulfate, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Molybdenum Amino Acid Chelate, Beta Carotene, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Chromium Picolinate, Thiamin Mononitrate, Retinyl Palmitate, Folic Acid, D-Biotin, Potassium Iodide, Phytonadione, Cholecalciferol, Cyanocobalamin

    After a workout MAlto is perfectly fine, its just that you dont want to spike your insulin in the middle of the day its not good.
