There’s better protein powders out there, flavors are pretty good, but they were sued for allegedly “amino spiking” and deceiving consumers a few years back

I was recommended this product by a friend. I’ve tried a fairly small number of protein powders. I was looking for something that was even more budget friendly than Optimum Nutrition and to be honest, it’s clear where Body Fortress either “cuts corners” or is simply delivering a slightly different product.First of all, it’s worth noting that Body Fortress uses whey concentrate, not whey isolate like Optimum Nutrition.
The primary difference here is that, as the name suggests, an isolate is an even more “pure” protein nutrient. What that means in practical terms is that you have to have more of it to get a similar amount of protein. So yeah, two hefty scoops is going to give you 60g of protein in one hefty shake… but it will also mean more calories, more fat and, perhaps most disturbingly, a TON of cholesterol.*
That’s fine if you want more of those calories, but the thing that I’m not a big fan of was just how much of the product I’m going through so quickly. Even though Body Fortress costs quite a bit less than O.N. you are using a much bigger scoop, so you’re going through a larger amount of powder in less time. At the end of the day, you get a few more grams of protein but at an almost negligable price difference. I wish I had taken that more into consideration when buying it.
If I ever have the desire to really bulk up, this might be a better option for me, but I already do a pretty good job -for me- managing macros without needing the extra fat contained here.To Body Fortress’ credit, the powder mixes easily in milk or water, doesn’t smell or taste bad. So for what it is, it’s fine. there are some clear compromises/decisions made in this product that don’t work for me, though.*odds are that if you are working out and doing lots of exercise you’ll be okay, but for those using it as a more relaxed meal/calorie supplement, you will want to take that into consideration.

I have been using Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein Powder for about 4 years. Vanilla is my favorite flavor, as it is very versatile and I can mix with all sorts of ingredients to make a variety of delicious shakes. This brand is great value for the money, mixed great, and tasted great. To my surprise, when I received my shipment the other day, I discovered they made a “New and Improved Formula”, touting “enhanced mixability and amazing new taste”….WRONG!!WHY? WHY? WHY? Why would they ever change such a great product? I do not like the flavor at all. It is not a sweet creamy vanilla, as the former formula was….it has an off-type of artificial taste, and it leaves an after taste. I tried it twice, and unfortunately will be returning this for money $$$ back. I am extremely disappointed. If I cannot find the original formula, it seems I will be forced to go on a search for a new protein powder.

Along with the ongoing lawsuit about protein spiking- I found the product did not have the allotted amount of protein guaranteed within the product.

This is hands down the best value you will get, and the flavor is amazing compared to other brands. I’m already on my third container of it, and haven’t even bothered switching brands like I usually do because the flavor and price. I saw others complaining about the cholesterol. One scoop has 125mg of cholesterol and 30grams of protein. One egg has 185mg of cholesterol and 6 grams of protein. In that perspective, it’s not bad at all. You can probably find a better ratio, but it might cost you around double. I seen others complain about sucralose which is an artifical sweetener popular in Splenda. That’s what gives it a lot of the good flavor. It’s better than having more added sugars, and more calories. Usually protein drinks taste terrible. These are delicious both cookies and cream and chocolate. The protein obviously helps because I’m able to get a max workout in, and recover fully in 24 hours now. That wasn’t the case when I lacked protein in my diet. I only use one scoop a day. Like I said, this is a good value protein and not really bad. If you want something more healthier and probably less tasty you can pay a lot more.
I truly enjoy looking through on this site, it holds good
This protein is lit.
Great tasting protein, and would recommend it to everyone
