Vanilla Ice Cream - This was a hit from the second it hit my taste buds till I stopped tasting the after taste of the vanilla ice cream flavor. If you want a pure, elegant, luscious, and very dense vanilla protein powder this is for you. What I like about the vanilla from Build Fast Formula is how it balances sweetness and density into a popular classic flavor. I picked up a small hint of vanilla bean in the backend, which gives this vanilla a very unique twist.
Chocolate Lava Cake – Chocolate Lava Cake from Build Fast Formula is similar to the vanilla as it does contain a multitude of flavors to make it well-rounded chocolate. While a lot of companies go for single flavor chocolate I found this was hybrid milk chocolate and dark chocolate combination. As the flavors swarm together you will notice how strong and bold the flavors compliment each other. Lava Cakes have a gooey center as you cut into a cake, and that is noticed with a deep, rich chocolate flavor. For those who truly enjoy a solid chocolate flavor, this will be a staple in your protein stash.
The combination of micellar casein and whey stimulates muscle protein synthesis (MPS) for six hours, inhibits muscle protein breakdown (MPB), and has been scientifically proven to have greater nitrogen retention than whey or micellar casein alone.
Build Fast Formula Eighty:20 is a heavy casein blend. Due to the fact casein is on the thick side I would suggest the following for mixing the protein powder.
As a Shake, I would do 6-8oz per scoop. This will be on the thicker side due to the ingredient profile, so some who want a thinner shake go with 10-12oz. I find that even with 6-8oz of liquid there were no clumps left when mixed up in a generic blender bottle. The texture is smooth and has a milkshake resemblance.
This is one of my favorite ways to use protein powder. Due to the heavy casein content, this mixes extremely thick. Compared to other protein blends on the market I find this comes out just a step below a straight casein powder, which I personally prefer. Even if you do mix this with just protein and water in a bowl it has a great consistency to it. When mixed with greek yogurt it makes almost a custard-like texture similar to a dairy queen blizzard. I could turn my spoon upside down with it sitting on my spoon.
Great video Bob (I watched it finally). Yeah, excited to get my samples of these. I will def be posting my thoughts! and that pudding, damn! I like BFFs approach to their line, slow, steady, done right! Cheers!
I tried out the Chocolate Lava cake and gotta day, I was freaking impressed. I generally don’t do vanilla or chocolate proteins because I tend to enjoy the more exotic flavors. I throughly enjoyed the Chocolate. It was thick and the flavor was very prominent. I’m a fan of the Blends as well, as it’s more fun to play around with when it comes to making sludge or baking
This may create a firestorm, but I’m blaming my participation on this Board and the knowledge imparted by all of you for this…
I noticed that on the website/web page for the protein that it states that it is ‘Micellar Casein’ and ‘Whey’…Again, having been on this board for awhile I then ask the question…ok, what kind of whey? Is it WPI? Whey Concentrate? Hydrolyzed whey? No whey?
Based on the information from Bob it sounds like it is Whey Concentrate - which is fine - I’m just curious as to why it isn’t mentioned on the Site?
