Machine Whey Reviews
By: MTS Nutrition
I was given the opportunity to review this product via the Expert Reviewer program for free. They were very nice to provide a full 5lb tub for review in exchange for an unbiased review. I was hesitant trying a new unknown protein, given that I typically stick with Myofusion and/or 100% GS for my blends, but I decided to give it a fair shake.
Taste 10+: This is where this product shines. Typically I do not really rate on taste, because I am trying to feed the body not satisfy the taste/appetite. However, this product by far has the best taste of any protein I have ever tried. Consistency, flavor, after taste. I typically mixed it with just water, but sometimes did milk and/or Greek yogurt. This is light-years better than Myofusion or 100% GS.
Effectiveness 9: As with any high quality protein they are typically very similar. The profile here provides for roughly 5g of BCAAs and 4g of Glutamine. Similar to 100% GS. It is a blend of isolate and concentrate. Slightly higher fat content per serving (3g) and slightly higher cholesterol (20% DV). Effectiveness/Recovery was on par with your top tier protein blends, won't work miracles in recovery/soreness but that isn't its intent. No noticeable drop between the other leaders in the protein categories.
Value 9: At roughly 39.99 for 5lb plus shipping that is solid value. With the price of ON products going up and up every month, this is a welcome addition to the protein landscape. Better value than ON 100% GS or Myofusion.
Overall 9: This is a solid, top tier protein blend that may be new to the market but isn't short on the execution. They nailed the taste, the profile is solid, and the price/value is below comparable market leaders. If you are interested in jumping away from your standard 100% GS, Myofusion, etc... You will not be disappointed.
It gets the bladeski seal of approval.
