Cellucor COR-Performance Whey is a high-quality protein powder that has become a staple for gym people or non-gym people all around.

This protein powder gives 25 grams of protein per serving. It is the right amount for the people who want to build and maintain a lean muscle.

The source of protein is 100% whey protein from whey isolate and concentrate. So, this is not entirely isolate whey protein. Therefore, it is an excellent protein which is easy and quick to digest.

It has 5.5 grams of BCAAs in one serving besides with the digestive enzymes.

The carbohydrate and fat contents are low. Cellucor is entirely gluten-free, which is useful for building and maintaining lean muscle.

It tastes quite average and mixes well as compared to the other protein powders available in the market.

However, the product can be added to the morning breakfast or in between meals as in yoghurt, oatmeal, pudding, pancakes, ice cream, or some other foods.

This powder can be used before or after workouts or as a quick snack or replacement for a meal.

Additionally, it contains milk and soy ingredients, so you must note this if you have allergy or sensitivity to either of these. It also has added artificial flavors, sucralose (an artificial sweetener). It might cause some bloating or stomachache in specific individuals.

So overall, Cellucor COR-Performance Whey is an above average whey protein powder.

9. Rule One R1 Whey Isolate Protein, 2.26 kg Whey Protein

Rule one R1 is one of the classiest products in our list, and its protein ratio is as high as 87%.

It means that one scoop has a protein content of around 87%, which is high. It claims to have pure Isolate protein formula which ensures excellent performance in providing the benefits.

After using the product for a month, I have seen that the taste is quite sweet. Which worries me because if it contains sugar, then it destroys the whole purpose of consuming it.

However, when I followed the ingredient list in detail, I found out that it claims to have 0g sugar, but it is 0.12g.

Apart from that, the muscles do not show any visual improvement. Still, I have observed no problem in digestion, little bloating in first 2-3 uses and then it improves.

After returning from the gym also, I don’t feel as tired as before. Therefore, it has increased my stamina. Hope to see better results and will recommend this product to you.

Please note that the product contains soy and milk; therefore, if you are allergic to either of them, do not consider this product.

So, overall, you may go for this choice.

• Usage:

You can add 1 full scoop of R1 Protein powder to 1 cup of cold water. Then stir or blend it until it becomes smooth.

Things to consider while choosing the Best Whey Protein

Whey protein types and what beginners should buy:

  1. Whey protein concentrate (WPC): This is a concentrated protein that has most nutrients. 70–80% protein contains fat & lactose. However, it has the best flavor.
  2. Whey protein hydrolysate (WPH): WPH is pre-digested since it breaks down peptides to help in quick absorption.
  3. Whey protein isolate (WPI): This is somewhat like WPC. But after the removal of most fat-soluble vitamins, carbohydrates, and fat, the powder has high % of protein.

Having 90% protein or higher, containing less lactose and fat, WPIs are the best pick for you if you are a beginner.

Benefits of Isolate whey protein for you:

  • Essential Amino Acids

Whey protein isolate counts to be the purest form of whey and is wholesome protein. It contains all the essential amino acids that the body needs for repairing muscle after a heavy lifting or general workout.

  • Low in Fat & Carbs

While so many products in the market have extra fat & carbs claiming the opposite, whey protein isolate on its own is low in both. Your body will get all the protein without added carbohydrates and fats.

  • Low in Lactose Levels

Lactose content in whey protein is less than 1%. This little amount of lactose lets you take the whey protein even if you have a sensitivity to it or lactose intolerance. OfCourse, consult with your nutritionist before doing so.

  • Easy to Digest

Whey proteins are generally easy to digest and hence, makes your body healthier and may even aid in maintaining body weight. Isolate whey proteins are processed and absorbed quickly.

Choose the ‘Why’ for the ‘Whey’

photo

  • To build muscle – In this case, you shou
    ld choose a protein powder having a high biological value which is a value that measures the absorption and utilization of protein in the body.
  • To lose weight – In this case, you should choose the protein shakes with no added sugars or sweeteners are made from starch called the dextrin or maltodextrins.

Does whey protein contain steroid?

No, whey protein is not a steroid as it does not contain any growth hormone. It is only a myth. However, there is no amount of steroid present in whey protein until you purchase the one with added steroids or growth hormones.

How to pick the one, suited for you:

whey protine

  • Ingredient label must include whey proteins:

Whey protein should be the number one ingredient in the list because there is no point of purchasing a protein powder if your focus is whey protein

  • Should be having no added sugar content:

Choose the protein powder with minimum added sugars or artificial sweeteners because it is not a healthy option at all. If you are fine with adding carbs, then add them yourself in the form of either fruit, milk, or natural honey.

whey protine_photo

  • Focus on Protein content in one serving:

You should pick a whey protein powder which a protein serving of at least 20-25 grams. It is the ideal amount of protein that one should take per serving.

  • Take a note of the Nutrients Content present:

You would need to know the fat and carbohydrates content in protein. You can even opt for the protein that comes with BCAA and creatinine. But again, it is more of a personal choice. We would recommend you go for a regular whey without any supplements.

  • Profile for Amino acid:

Choose a brand that specifies the amino acid profile either on their website or on the label. Also, the leucine content per serving should be high, at least 2 grams.

  • Must be pocket Friendly:

It is another essential thing to consider as you may need to check if the protein falls in your budget. Most of the proteins can be expensive and hence ensure that what you select fits your pocket.

  • Should be NSF certified:

Choose the powders that are the third-party tested for quality and safety assurances. The NSF Certified for Sport or the Informed-Choice tests the products for the banned substances and to make sure that the label is accurate. If not tested, the products may be harmful to you.

Disclaimer: Do not worry! We are not going back to the boring chemistry classes. – We have all this information covered in our guide.
