First things first, big thanks to xStevenx. I won a contest earlier for AllMax's new multivitamin, Vitaform. I won't be offering a review for that since.. well it's a multivitamin.
I was already using Isoflex before I got this review, but I’ve only ever tried chocolate. I got 2 samples, one for chocolate peanut butter, the other chocolate mint. I used 8 oz 2% milk in a shaker bottle for each flavor.
Mixability: I’ll rate these together, since my experience with each was the same. All of them mixed perfectly within 10-15 seconds of shaking. The only minor thing that came up was the chocolate chips settling. This wasn’t surprising, but I would have to scoop them up with a spoon if I wanted to get them.
Profile: Most people know that Isoflex has a great profile. It has 27g of protein per 30g serving. Top notch as far as I’m concerned.
Chocolate Peanut Butter: Tied with chocolate as my favourite. Reminded me of a Reese’s, had a perfect ratio of PB to chocolate. I’ve only ever tried one other CPB protein, but the AllMax one definitely tops it flavor wise.
Chocolate Mint: I won’t lie, I hate things that are chocolate mint. Never liked the real chocolate mint, and I didn’t think I’d like the protein. However, it turned out to be quite a pleasant, nice taste. Wouldn’t be a regular purchase for me, but I have no doubt aficionados of the Choco Mint flavor would love this. If I had another sample, I was thinking of trying it with Oximega Greens, might work well together.
Chocolate: Definitely one of the better chocolates I have tried. I purchased the 5lb tub of this, goes great with anything. Water, milk, oats, sludge, big shakes… anything really. I don’t have any experience with the fancy Truteins/Protean, but this is definitely the best chocolate I’ve had.
Overall: I have nothing bad to say about the texture, flavor, profile or mixability. The only thing that may scare away customers is the price, but a powder with a profile like Isoflex tends to come at a price.
Got 1 sample packet of aminocore as well. I had the Fruit Punch Blast and mixed it with about 12 oz of water.
Mixability: Mixability was fantastic, only BCAA product to mix this well for me was N’Gage. No floater whatsoever, and this was just stirring with a spoon. I did have some settling occur, however, I didn’t use the prescribed 500mL either directed by instructions.
Profile: Aminocore comes with a 45:30:25: ratio of BCAAs. I won’t pretend that I know too much about the different rations, so I’ll leave that up to you guys. It does have a nice B-Complex however.
Flavour: I was a bit disappointed here. It was a bit bland… uninteresting at best. Considering the market is flooded with delicious tasting BCAAs, I can’t say I cared too much for this flavor. It was easy to drink for sure, but it didn’t leave me wanting anymore.
Anyways that’s it for my reviews, thanks again to AllMax and xStevenx for the opportunity to try out some of their products.
