Unflavored Protein Powder?



Recommended Posts

I could use some help figuring out how to proceed with the all-important protein!

What do you all use? I don’t like anything with flavor, so I’m just comparing unflavored powders.

1) Genepro— been using for months successfully, but their product (or labeling?) changed so it might be time to change. Maybe I’ve overestimated how much Protein I got if they mislabeled??

2) Tried Isopure and bipro Bold (both yuck)

3) Considering Unjury Unflavored—does anyone use this? Taste, smell, texture? 24g scoop, 21g protein at $1.60 per serving.

4) New GENEPRO (3rd generation) is lower on protein. Calculated to compare to Unjury, a 22g scoop is 22g protein at $2.66 per serving.

5) Someone posted about Vital Proteins, but it contains a lot more sodium than I’d like.

6) Am I missing any other options?

Thanks!

I tried Unjury and found it unacceptable. It seemed to have quite a bit of flavored for being unflavored. That said, I dont mix my items with milk so that might help. You can buy by the packet for just a couple bucks on their website to try it out on the cheap.

GENEPRO is great. I've been using it since pre-op.

I found my nutritionist’s pre-op notes and read the following unflavored powders:

1) Designer whey isolate (contains 1g added sugar…deal breaker?)

2) Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard (1g added sugar)

3) Inspire Bariatric: 24g scoop, 92 calories, 20g Protein, at $2.10 per serving (expensive)

4) Syntrax Nectar Unflavored whey Protein Isolate: Calculated to compare to others, 22g scoop, 20g protein, at $1.02 per serving (reasonable)

Has anyone tried Syntrax nectar Unflavored? Taste, smell, texture?

Thanks!

I ordered the Syntrax unflavored (for oatmeal, Soups, etc.) and also lemonade flavor (for everyday fluids). It had good reviews, and I’m hopeful that the lemonade flavor tastes similar to Crystal Light. At the very least, it looks like the least expensive high quality product. I’ll post again on flavor in a few weeks. 😀

You can buy a sample packet of the Unjury unflavored for just over $2 the only drawback is going to be the shipping. I thinks its around $7 but $9 to try it is and maybe not like it is better than $25 to buy a container of it and not like it.

Update:

The Syntrax Roadside Lemonade flavor is fine. When I mix 30 g of Protein in 3 cups of Water, it is a bit gritty and semi-sweet. However, when I reduced it to the 23 g of protein in one full scoop, and add half a packet of crystal light, it is just right.

The Unflavored Syntrax has only a slight smell in the container. When I mixed 10 g of protein into my oatmeal, it is only slightly perceivable. Definitely doable.

Will continue with these protein powders! Thanks.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
