Once I had finished up my last tub of Prota-Lyn
I decided I wanted to try yet another brand of whey protein
. After a short stint with Dymatize
Elite… I couldn’t stomach the taste so I returned it… I decided to pick up a 5lb. tub of Gaspari’s MyoFusion
. I have finished an entire 5 lb. tub of the Milk Chocolate and have put a serious dent in another 5 lb. tub of Cookies ‘n’ Cream. Primarily I now use this product either immediately post-workout or in combination with a scoop of casein protein as a meal replacement
. It is also a solid choice for a breakfast shake.
I won’t list All The Whey
brands and flavors that I’ve tried, suffice to say it’s a pretty long list. MyoFusion
is the best whey protein
powder I have tasted, period. Both the Milk Chocolate and the Cookies ‘n’ Cream are outstanding. The chocolate is smooth, creamy, and tastes somewhat like a Hershey bar. The CNC tastes exactly like melted cookies and cream ice cream. Phenomenal. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about either of these flavors and in my rank of all the powders I have tried (in terms of taste) these two would come in first and second. I always mixed this product in water and would often use 24 oz. of water just so there was more shake to drink.
Myofusion can be a bit stubborn when it comes to mixing in a shaker bottle. If you’re not really vigorous in your shaking, the powder does tend to clump a little bit and take on a chunky texture. I found that as long as I shook the bottle for at least 30 seconds, I didn’t have any issues with the powder not completely mixing.
I will also point out that this was much more an issue with the Milk Chocolate flavor than it was with the CNC. I am not sure if this is because the chocolate is the “new formula” or if it has something to do with the flavoring agent. Regardless, even when the powder clumped up a bit, I didn’t care because the taste was still outstanding.
I think I’ve said this for just about every whey protein
I’ve reviewed, but I find it difficult to judge a whey powder’s true effectiveness. Whey is whey for the most part. MyoFusion
is more of an isolate blend than a straight concentrate formula, and it’s ingredient profile lists the following forms of whey (in order): whey concentrate, whey isolate, egg albumin, milk isolate, & whey hydrolysate.
I used MyoFusion
for most of my bulking cycle and have continued using it as I transition into a full cutting phase. Regardless of your goals, I think MyoFusion
delivers a solid dosing of fast-absorbing protein that is ideal for the early morning or post-workout. Additionally, the ingredient profile includes 25% of a person’s daily requirement of Vitamins A, C, D, E, & calcium, which is a nice bonus.
I will also add that MyoFusion
was the gentlest on my stomach of any powder that I’ve tried. This is a big factor for me in effectiveness, as it’s a pretty solid indicator of the quality of the product. With the exception of Prota-Lyn
, every other whey product has given me horrendous gas. With MyoFusion
I have had almost none, and since I switched to intermittent Fastin
g I have not experienced any gas whatsoever.
When compared to other similar products, MyoFusion
is very competitively priced. A 5 lb. tub on BB.com will run you $42 and get you 63 scoops. This equates out to a per scoop cost of .66c. The same size tub of 100% Whey
costs $45 and produces 71 scoops – a per scoop cost of .63c. Syntha-6
is even more expensive, coming in at a per scoop cost of .81c. It’s worth noting that while 100% Whey
does list whey isolate first in its ingredient profile, and that Syntha-6
includes Micellar Casein
, neither brand offers the whey hydrolysate or the vitamin profile that MyoFusion
Personally, Gaspari hit a home run with this product in my opinion. Not only does it taste great and include some very nice ingredient bonuses, but it is also very competitively priced. Furthermore, there is currently a deal on BB.com that nets you a small container of SuperPump250
with the purchase of a 5 lb. tub. Not the greatest deal ever, but it’s a nice plus. I highly recommend MyoFusion
and am comfortable saying that it is going to be my whey powder staple for a quite a while.
