Has premier protein changed their recipe?



Recommended Posts

I picked up a case of chocolate Premier Protein the other day and it tastes totally different from the previous ones I have had. Not bad different, just different. I'm curious if they changed their recipe because of the lawsuit against them? Does anyone have any info? Have you tasted the change or is it just me?

The last case i picked up was really thick and I haven’t been drinking them bc I was thinking there was something wrong with that batch. Interested to hear what others are thinking. Thx for posting this!

Might have something to do with the ongoing lawsuit, maybe they are reformulating to up their real🍶 Protein count.

Well went check at my Wal-Mart yesterday. Good news they have a shipment of Premier Protein in, bad news all they have is chocolate and vanilla, no 🍓, no 🍑, no caramel which was what I was hoping for. They had new organic, more vegan, scanty muscle milk and they seem to have deleted the Protein Water. My last muscle milk strawberry was yucky, tried to use it for my Tuesday Breakfast before going for my surgeon office visit, stomach uneasy rest of day until my evening vomit. I am now relegated to the care of Nurse Practioners and Dietitians, got new diet in case my EGJ works Well tomorrow. Need to call them again by next Wednesday, let them know if I am able to progress my food up to Stage 3, I am pretty "snake bit" but I shall try. And if all goes well, I turned over Roy, my favorite dietician card, and there on reverse is my Small diet/ gastric disclaimer card from OSU, so I guess I am now able to progress to resturant food if all goes well. Told Roy what I am hungry for, he flinched, guess he is not a fan. I would like to dry and cut my tofu into itty bitty chunk of goodness, I want teryaki fried tofu! Guess he was expecting me to whine I wanted steak, nope , I couldn't even handle pureed meat the last time I tried, but tofu, dang it, I do want some!🍝🍲🍛

I just finished a case of Cookies and Cream, the newest flavor. It was pretty sweet, but good. But like all Premier Protein if I don't finish it within 20 minutes and it gets warm, bleh!

Yeah, I dont think mine changed consistency. It just tastes different.

That's what I'm hoping! Besides from Unjury (which is o expensive), I find premier to be the second best tasting!

Yeah, they get gross pretty fast. The smell is what gets to me. Let it sit out for more than a half hour and smell it absolutely disgusting. Like sour milk.

I noticed this too, mine lately have been watery almost. Not like a few months ago it was thicker.

TBH I can't stand how Premier tastes at the moment. Its so sweet to me. Especially the Caramel, Peaches & Cream, etc. The chocolate is the only one I can get down but with that said im doing mostly clear Protein liquid supplements now.

The chocolate is the only flavor I like, I can handle vanilla or caramel if I HAVE to but they're way too sweet in an artificial tasting way, so I'd rather avoid them if I can. costco doesn't ever have strawberry or any of the other flavors, so I just stick with the chocolate which I do like a lot. Haven't noticed any difference with my last case though!

Well, this certainly explains why the consistency went from thick to thin. I liked the thicker version and it kept me fuller longer. It also made me very regular about an hour after I drank it. Thank you for this thread.

Has anyone switched from the ready to feed to the powder form? My Wal-Mart deleted every flavor except vanilla and chocolate, chocolate allergy for 43 years, growing to loathe vanilla RTF, yeah I could order site-to-store, but when I want something , I want something. No Sams Club (23 miles distant) no costco (30 miles) never had Amazon account, let alone Prime, and Bariatric Pal, much as I 💓them, couple days wait-time. And if I found WM disappointing, Krogers was more so÷ God I used to be a Kroger Kid, why ? They have little to offer Bariatric-friendly. Any advice to replace my (sob) deleted Premeir Protein friends. I need them or a tasty repkacement to keep protein counts sky- high🌈 Your Frustr8 Friend.

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
