Xtreme POWER WHEY ISOLATE? is manufactured using an advanced low temperature cross flow microfiltration, ultrfiltration and diafiltration process. This proprietary process ensures that all of the vital whey fractions aree present intact. Xtreme POWER WHEY ISOLATE? does not use any ion-exchanged whey because ion exchanged whey does not contain any "glycomacropeptides" --- a vital whey fraction.
How is Xtreme Power Whey Different From Other Proteins?
Xtreme Power Whey is derived from a sweet dairy whey (many whey proteins are derived from acid whey). This means that Xtreme Power Whey is a non-denatured and complete whey protein supplement. Xtreme Power Whey's special isolation process yields a complete whey fraction profile including: beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, glycomacropeptides, immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, bovine serum albumin.
Does Xtreme Power Whey include Glutamine?
Xtreme Power Whey has a very impressive amino acid profile. As far as glutamine content, Power Whey contains a remarkable level of naturally occurring glutamine. There is over 17 grams of glutamine per 100 grams of protein in the isolate.
Does Xtreme Power Whey include Glutamine Peptides?
Don't be fooled! "Glutamine Peptides" is not glutamine. It is hydrolyzed wheat protein. What's the difference? Well for starters, hydrolyzed wheat protein only contains 30% glutamine as part of its amino acid profile. Some companies add a small amount of hydrolyzed wheat protein and combine it with naturally occurring glutamine in the whey protein in an attempt to mislead you into believing that their product contains a significant amount of added glutamine.
For example, in a 50 gram serving of whey protein there is about 8 grams of naturally occuring glutamine. The company will then add 2 grams of hydrolyzed wheat protein and make an implied claim that there is 10 grams of added glutamine in their product! If a product you are currently using is marketed in this manner be skeptical. What else is this company misleading you about? We avoid using hydrolyzed wheat protein (glutamine peptides) in our products as it is a common allergen and a cheaper and inferior source of protein and glutamine.
Does Xtreme Power Whey Contain Lactose?
Lactose is a milk sugar that causes bloating and stomach discomfort in some individuals. Xtreme Power Whey is exceptionally low in lactose. There is less than 2% lactose in the isolate. To put this in perspective, a single serving of the isolate has less than 0.5 grams of lactose. In comparison a 12oz glass of 2% milk has 21 grams of lactose.
INFO THAT MATTERS
Isolate History: Allmax Isoflex (at least 20 lbs used), Bio-X (10 lbs), Ultimate Nutrition (currently using 6.6lb), All the Whey (just got and tried a few times will review after the 15 lbs
Why I choose Isolate first and am never going back: I went between Allmax Isoflex and ON?s 100% a few times and during my second 10lb bag of ON, stomach probs started and it ended when I went back to an Isolate.
Taste (Overall 9/10)
In Water? (9.5/10) Hmmmmmm. Have not tried another Isolate in Cookies and Cream flavour. Had Synthia-6 in cookies and cream and this is pretty close and its better nutritionally. Has the little cookie pieces in it .
In Milk? (8.5/10) Solid. Mixes easily with a spoon.
In Water Vanilla/Cookies and Cream? (8/10) Damn that is good.
In Milk Vanilla/Cookies and Cream? (9.5/10) Why isn?t this illegal? Damn it?s real good. It?s too good.
Mixability (Overall 7/10)
In Water? (7.5/10) So far in terms of Isolates is concerned (from what I have tried) Allmax is still king. This would be second in my book. Allmax you drop into water and its half disappeared into the water, this would be maybe 1/3 auto mixing on contact. Mixes well with a spoon but being that Allmax mixes so well and the price for everything (supplement wise) is so high in Canada, I have to be a little tough.
Milk (6.5/10) Mixes with a spoon but waits for me to do it. Again, this score is based on price vs. Allmax.
Price (7.5/10) Worked out to $80CDN after taxes and shipping to my house. For Isolate in Canada it?s not a bad price but still, $80 is $80.
Overall (7.8/10) Relatively new company. On bb.com, there isn?t even cookies and cream but I have reviewed it here (purchased from Canadian supplier of supplements on a two day special online). This is a REALLY GOOD ISOLATE. I will be posting an Ultimate Nutrition Iso-93 review soon and next time I check out Allmax, I will post a review. All they Whey I?ll review in April. I consider myself someone who has tried his fair share of Isolates and so far this comes in 2nd in terms of mixability but I think this is a solid contender for Allmax.
- Solid alternative to Allmax if you want to try something different.
- < 2% lactose
- 30g of Protein per scoop and only 140 calories with 1.5g of carbs
- Best cookies and cream Isolate I have tried (only I have tried but the rest have a tough challenge)
