which MRP - Is MET-Rx any good?

Hi

Looking at boosting my intake with MRPs as well as just whey. Met-Rx has whey and casien for fast/slow release - is this an effective one? there seems to be quite a few offers around at the moment and work out around £1 each.

was also looking at CNP too, as ive used pro-Peptide and really rate it.

cheers

    you'll find that mosr commercial MRP's only have maltodextrin as their carb source, this is far from ideal.

    Progen from reflex, IMO, is the best MRP on the market by far

    If you're only after a small amount of carbs then i recommend these guys: www.sports-nutrition.net their MRP's are Beautiful (40g protein, 15g carbs)

    A lot of people buy their MRP's from this company: www.myprotein.co.uk

    its out of date but i wouldnt have thought that would matter with a sealed bag of dry powder,unless someone knows better?...

    Those new myProtein MRPs look good, like the way the carbs come from barley and oats! May give them a try! Do you send out samples? I am a customer of myprotein

    never rated Met-RX MRPs, too thick for me even when mixed with just water and more than stated on the sachet. Had the strawberry ones and didnt taste that great either.

    CNP are excellent MRPs, i rate these as probably the best major branded MRPs on the market, and have been for sometime now.

    Personally tho, i always buy either All-in-1s or MyProteins MRPs now. Simply because they're cheaper and can match the above brands with nutritional value and even beat them regarding taste. Top stuff!

    Oh thanks for pointing that out.

    Guess its just me who thought it a touch strange that you list the nutritional profile per 100g and not the sachet as the product is sold in. Funny ol world!

    This was how it was supplied to us from the testing lab and entered into the db. It clearly states per 100g we aren't trying to "decive" anyone.

    Thanks
