Isopure drinks - good or bad?



Recommended Posts

Still trying to find a post-op Protein Drink that I actually like. I haven't had luck with the powders as I just can't get used to them and even though I've tried the Unjury unflavored, I can still taste it and can't stand it. I came across "Isopure" and have read VERY mixed reviews. Some people say it's an amazing post-op drink, packed with Protein, and tastes pretty good. However, according to the nutrition label, it's also high in sodium and calories. On one website, the reviews reflected as being BOTH an outstanding drink for weightloss/post-op bariatric surgery AND for gaining weight (bodybuilders). So, which is it? Also, any idea where it's sold in less than a 12pk? $40+ for a 12pk on Amazon for something I'm not even sure I'll like seems like a lot. For clarity - here's a pic of the product I'm talking about.

If you are talking about the Iso100 Clear drinks I have been using them. I don't particularly enjoy the taste though. To me they are sickeningly sweet, but I drink on anyway because I need to get the Protein in. Of course I don't mind powders, but everyone is different. If there is a way for you to maybe try one or two first and then get more if you don't mind them I would do that. I got a variety pack thinking I'd pick my favorite flavor, but I really don't see myself getting more of them.

Thanks for the info. I added a pic to my original post to clarify the product I'm talking about.

Okay, yes sorry those aren't the ones I got so disregard my advice lol. I checked and what I had bought was Dymatize ISO100.

These are what they gave me after surgery and by far my favorite. My active teen boys fell in love with them, too. Unfortunately, our favorite is lemonade which has recently gone into backorder, but we’ve tried most of the other flavors and they are good, too. We add them to smoothies drink them straight and have even made ice cubes out is them.

i sent a request (and encourage everyone to, also) to the company to develop a powdered version which would be cheaper and more environmentally friendly so we aren’t shipping the liquid.

I'm a big fan of Premier Protein's Mango flavored drink.

The Isopure clear drinks are fine - I don't really like them (they have the consistence of anti-freeze) but use them when I am on a clear diet, such as before a colonoscopy. Usually, I mix them in with Jello and that makes them more tolerable..

Calories are fine - 160 cal for 40g Protein means that all the calories are from protein - what you want at this stage of things. Sodium doesn't look terrible, and is rarely a problem while we are in a losing phase as we are eating so little overall; some people will actually run overly low on sodium at this stage.

If you like them, go for it.

They are soooooo disgusting. I'm so glad 8 only purchased one for GNC. I have Premier Protein peach coming today from Amazon and praying it's a tolerable flavor. Its such a balance trying to find what you can stand. I can't endure the Protein Shakes so I am consistently in a game of trial and error of how to get my Protein down.
