    Protein amount per serving.
    Taste.
    Does it mix well?
    Other people's experiences.
    Will it bloat me out? Discomfort?
    Nutritional value (sugar, fat, etc)
    Price.
     
    All factors I take into consideration.

    Tbh...I tend to stay away from bulk suppliers thinking that they're selling bulk and cheap because their product is substandard and or inferior...is this not the case?

    How do you guys chose which supplement companies to go with?  How do you assess what the quality of their raw ingredients is?  Tbh...I tend to stay away from bulk suppliers thinking that they're selling bulk and cheap because their product is substandard and or inferior...is this not the case?

     
    No, you could say it's quite the opposite.

    This.
     
    I agree with Cutting Mad too. If you want whey, go to a bulk supplier and you will get whey. Simples.
     
    If, on the other hand, you want whey with lots of unnecessary crap thrown in and be charged twice the price for it, go for one of the expensive brands.
     
    (This is obviously a polarised view and there are lots of very reasonable branded protein supplements out there that offer a nice middle ground between the above, but in general I'd say it's pretty accurate)

    Myprotein are arguably more of a brand now as opposed to a bulk supplier, look at the range of products they sell for example.
     
    Just because their cheap don't automatically discount quality, their whey is some of the best out there.

     Myprotein is very mainstream and everyone knows about them...I'm thinking more of the other smaller, low key bulk suppliers, the ones you don't see advertised on everyones t-shirts in the gym!

    Hi,
     
    Firstly thanks for the support. :)
    We would consider ourselves an "online brand", however we will always stay true to our roots and sell "bulk products". This is what made us popular and as long as we are around we will continue.
     
    We are the second largest sports nutrition company (behind MM) in the UK now and with that brings its own re-assurance. We pride ourselves on our quality and this is something we have done for 7 years not just since the "STCgate" affairs of last year when you noticed lots of companies change their formulas and\or start testing their products.
     
    We are also ISO9001 UKAS accredited for our own internal processes which includes manufacturing. This essentially means all of our processes are independently audited by a UKAS accredited auditor twice a year (SGS in our case) to ensure the quality is maintained.
     
    As a high profile company now our products are regularly randomly tested by trading standards (and independent co-ops) and every single time we have delivered or exceeded our label claims. 
     
    Finally, we supply products to many elite athletes and teams (England RFU, London Irish, West Brom FC, Olympic gold medal winners etc) so quality is essential for these guys (and girls).
     
    With our very affordable pricing we believe we offer an excellent high quality offering for all budgets.

    STCgate - love it.  Funny to think thats going on a year ago when we began to uncover the state of the protein market at the time.  Glad things are better now!

    Just to echo the above - and say I put my money with companies that support the sport.
     
    I am a long time MyProtein customer too, but also buy BSN and Nutrex products.

    MyProtein,

    I think you will find Body Fortress (Holland & Barrett own label) is the second largest sports nutrition brand in the UK...

    And I feel sorry for each and every Body Fortress customer! Although it must be fun seeing their faces when they open the tub and  see it's half empty. I bought 2 tubs many many years ago and put all the powder in one tub to save on space! Lol

    We all have to start somewhere :)

    You would be amazed how much of that stuff I used to sell to Wal Mart... When you have one buyer with 3500 stores and 100 million customers per week, that's were the real money is in this game...

    Hi - Obviously H&B are huge, but they aren't strictly a "sports nutrition company".
