5.0 out of 5 stars Isolate far better than Body Fortress Whey Protein, July 28, 2011
This review is from: Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Isolate, Vanilla Creme, 2 Pounds (Health and Beauty)
First let me make clear that Ive only been working out for a few months and the only prior protein Ive used was the Body Fortress Whey Protein. I saw excellent strength and muscle gains with the normal whey protein, however the cholesterol content in it was extremely high and it also caused me to get a little bloated and gassy but nothing I couldn't live with. After finishing my second tub of the I had gained 10lbs and was looking more cut and leaner than I had been in a while. So when I went to walmart to purchase my third container, I noticed they had a new Whey Isolate product for only $4 more. I checked out the contents: hardly any cholesterol (only 2% of your DV,which is great), plus a higher content of protein, and much higher content of the all-important BCAA's and other essential amino acids. There are less calories, calories from fat, carbs, and sodium versus the normal Whey Protein from this company. After two weeks of using the isolate, I dont plan on going back. The quality of the powder is much better and more refined, and it tastes great (especially with milk). It has also not caused any bloating or gas problems. This product is great for its price, and worth the $4 upgrade. I do plan on trying other brands in the near future just to make sure I'm not being biased, but for now this stuff is working great and I'll definitely be back for more.

It may be better. I'm on my first bottle, but I won't be buying it again after seeing these results:
http://www.reddit.com/r/Fitness/comments/uva9t/big_reddit_protein_powder_measurement_results/

That guy found Body Fortress Whey Protein only had 40% of the protein claimed on the label. I hope the isolate is better since I already bought it, but I'm going to use more reputable brands from now on.

Wow, Eugene, thanks for posting the link to that article!!! That was an eye opener!!! I'll consider making the switch to ON for my protein in the future as a result of all of that info. Cheers :)

According to the unaffiliated, independent Consumer Lab, the Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Isolate Vanilla Creme had the full amount of protein listed. No other products in the line were tested, however. I do not work for or have any affiliation with Body Fortress. I am just a customer. The reddit link above does not link, so I cannot speak to claims made on a reddit thread.
