How is the flavoring? Is it even remotely on par with the better flavors on the market, like Xtreme Formulations, Combat, Trutein, etc? Or is it not quite as good, closer to Gold Standard? Or is it even worse?

Protein should NOT be this cheap. Even years back before the price jumped this would have been a steal. This would be akin to finding a store selling Filet steak for $2.50-$3/lb... it just doesn't happen unless the meat is old or very low quality or they're doing some type of strange loss-leader type sale. So I'm actually rather scared by seeing this price, knowing what I know about the inner workings of this industry.

The supplement industry is one of the shadiest there is. MANY many larger companies have been caught completely faking their formulations on products and they actually have reputations to uphold. Smaller companies just don't get enough attention for anyone to bother checking their stuff generally so they can get away with it a lot longer.

myprotein is able to sell so cheap because they are not like gnc buying the protein from optimum nutrition or Amazon buying from dymatize. they make their own product. it cuts down on a lot of cost and expenses as well as their packaging is very minimalistic and advertising is rare for them compared to other companies. all these together add up to them being able to sell to us for dirt cheap prices with a good product. plus labdoor has them rated as a top protein with lab test.

That whole marketing thing and selling direct thing is a great schtick to convince the bro's. But in reality there are plenty of other companies that don't do much or any marketing and who sell direct but could never sell high quality product at this price and stay in business.

Do you work in the industry? I'm curious if you're just really into myprotein or if you work for them or work in the industry in general.

no relation to them. These are my conclusions off searching when I asked the same questions. they buy sacks of whey protein and sell it right to you minimally packaged if it'd unflavored and add some small flavoring to it if you want chocolate strawberry etc but it's all very minimal. they also do not spend on guar gum or fancy emulsifiers like optimum nutrition does. this is same little wins that aldi consistently makes so they can sell for far cheaper than publix for example and still make profit. they don't pay people to collect carts, they do not use shopping bags, they do not spend on stockers and they keep their stores very small. all these things add up to gain in money. lastly they carry a small variety of supplements or products for example 3 kinds of peanut butter vs 20 for publix. same for Amazon carrying hundreds vs a few by myprotein. less variety let's them be able to sell cheaper.

Myprotein seems to score high with LabDoor, which is an independent testing facility. Not sure why you would shade without doing any research, then basically accuse people of having affiliations.

Because I have knowledge of how much protein actually costs and why the costs are as high as they are from the companies you see selling stuff routinely.

I also know how much it costs when you don't use the highest grade proteins.

Thus I'm trying to determine if anyone here has actual knowledge of their sourcing / quality control methods or if they just enjoy the cheap prices.

Lab door has some very silly grading scales they use on things. I had to laugh at some of the nutritional value scores and such. Projected Efficacy is quite humorous too. I honestly don't use their overall ranking scores for anything as they're fairly meaningless.

The Label Accuracy rating is about the only thing I would find valuable, if I understood better how they determine it. But considering they give NOW a horrible rating for that... I tend to question their methods as NOW is one of the higher quality producers and works very hard on that reputation. I doubt they miss label claims by 45%... Whatever 45% means.

I guess everyone must be in on this conspiracy to try to get you to buy poor quality protein.

Hey, if you want to throw stuff in your body blindly then by all means, go for it. I used to do it too. Until I got an inside view of the industry. The longer I have an inside view the less supplements I take and the more shocked I am.

This is truly one of those industries you really don't want to know details on. It makes the beef and poultry industries look angelic in comparison.

How easily does this mix? I usually put an oz of powder in my morning coffee, and EAS for instance blends in excellently, while another protein brand still has small clumps. If this stirs in well, I'd be in.

As a HUGE advocate of MyProtein (it's the ONLY protein I've found stomachable...every other one makes me gag, throw up, have cramps, or shit my brains out) DO NOT PUT THIS IN YOUR [HOT] COFFEE/LIQUID!!! It turns into a clumpy mass of congealed protein. It is NOT appetizing!!!
