Introduction:

A huge thank you to the SR Troops program and the people at Cellucor, for giving me the opportunity to try their Cellucor Cor Perfomance Whey protein. Whey protein is a way to supplement your protein from your daily whole food protein sources. It's a protein supplement, not something you should be drinking in place of meals.

Whey protein is a staple for me, and depending on the grams in any brand, I will typically take 1 to 1.5 scoops per day with water or 2% milk, in addition to my other protein sources coming from whole foods.

Personally, in terms of taste, I prefer a whey protein that has an enjoyable flavor. If I do not like a particular flavor or brand that doesn't taste good I will pass. Also, I buy products that do not have any negative effects on my stomach.

My experience goes way back to the days of the first Twin Lab protein product, I believe it was a mass gainer. Needless to say the quality has come a long way since then. I am perfectly fine with a whey protein and isolate combination.

Ironically this is my first time trying a full tub of Cellucor Cor Performance Whey Protein. I have tried many of their other products, with quite a bit of success thus far.

Ingredient Profile:

This is a pretty standard profile, 25 grams of protein per scoop. 1 gram of sugar, but there is the typical sucralose in the profile for sweetness and its a blend of whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate.

This is a fast digesting whey protein, that is typically used during the day, upon waking, post workout or anytime in between.

Taste: I had the molten chocolate flavor. It was quite good 8.5/10. Cellucor has about 8 or 10 different flavors of this product. It tastes more rich in 2% milk as opposed to water and had a slight bitter after taste when I used water, but nothing overly problematic. Everyone has different taste buds.

Mixability: This product mixed very well in water or via 2% Milk. The typical vessel of choice was a shaker cup. No clumping or floaters.

Dosing: For this product I took a slightly rounded scoop, one time during the day. Sometimes upon waking on non-workout days, some post workout and sometimes with dinner. Oddly enough, the serving size for the tub is 26 servings, and with the above dosing, this lasted my 30 days.

Effectiveness:

A category tough to judge when taking a whey protein supplement. It's a standard profile, mixed well and appears to have some higher quality ingredients, when compared to other brands. No amino spiking here. Also, to have a product that doesn't mess with your GI, and Cellucor Cor Performance caused me no such issues in that area.

Value:

The standard price I am currently seeing is $29.99 for the 2 lb container. That is about $1.15 per serving. You can get the 4lb tub for 49.99 and drive that cost down some per serving. This is a good value for a trusted whey protein isolate/concentrate source.

There are a few times during the year, you can get this product bogo at 50% off, that is great value when that sale is on from either bb.com or M & S.

Side Effects:

No side effects here, especially no GI issues, which is a plus. That tells you, that you are getting a quality product from a whey protein.

Conclusion:

Let's not try to reinvent the wheel here folks, you are looking at a trusted ingredient profile, quality product, that tastes quite good and causes no GI issues. This is a great choice when looking for whey protein supplement.

Personally, I will be buying this product on the next bogo 50% off deal I see, because I always try to look to save some of my hard earned $$.

I believe the offer and/or sell sample packs of 5 servings, that actually have a scooper!!

    Things have definitely changed. Who knows in 25 years this industry could be severely regulated.
