Thank you very much! I’m glad you like it!

The flavoring on Phormula-1 is much lighter than other isolates on the market; we designed it that way on purpose. Phormula-1 is very pure and doesn’t require an overpowering flavor to cover up impurities of lesser quality, denatured proteins. It’s designed to taste more like a Crystal Light or a Vitamin Water and less like a protein shake. Through our over 12 months of taste testing, we found that nobody wants a filling/heavy shake post workout. It makes them feel bloated, full and unable to eat their next meal; which can severely limit progress. So we designed it to be very light and refreshing with zero aftertaste. It’s a new idea to the supplement industry, but that’s what we’re about…Innovation.

One thing I have personally noticed is the directions call for 18 ounces of water per 2 scoops of Phormula-1 and 1 scoop of Ignition; I find this to be too much water for my personal taste. From my experience, for best taste Phormula-1 needs to be mixed at 1 Scoop per 5-6 ounces of water. I have found that you don’t need to add any extra water for the Ignition. For example: I mix 2 scoops of Phormula-1 and 1 scoop of Ignition in 12 ounces of cold water. It’s outstanding!!! I feel you don’t need to add extra water to account for the Ignition as the label suggests. This makes for an extremely refreshing flavorful, but not overpowering drink.

If you mix your Phormula-1/Ignition with a lot more water, the way the label claims, it will water the flavor down a bit and make for a very light drink. Some people prefer it this way. It’s great either way, but I like my way better (who would have thought?). I think it’s so much better with less water that I am seriously considering changing the mixing instructions to indicate less water. Try it my way and let us know what you think!

Of course you may adjust the taste to your preference by adding or subtracting as much water as necessary to find your personal taste. Less water = a more flavorful taste. More water = a much lighter taste. What really sets Phormula-1 apart, besides the taste, is it’s quality of protein, mixability and lack of any aftertaste. There are no other proteins like this and if you try it you’ll see exactly what I mean. Phormula-1 is designed to be refreshing, not overpowering. Regardless of the flavor preference a person has, you simply can’t beat the quality of Phormula-1.

Phormula-1 is a very pure protein product containing only the very highest quality hydrolyzed and predigested whey protein fractions with Low Temperature Processed cross-flow micro-filtrated whey protein isolates, designed for the fastest possible amino acid assimilation. The purity is what makes it such an incredible product, for a lot of reasons. The purity of the non-denatured proteins used is the main reason it doesn’t require an overpowering flavor to cover up any impurities of lesser quality protein. Proteins that have been denatured have that all too familiar “crappy protein aftertaste” and have to be flavored very strongly in order to be tolerable. In fact, it takes very little flavoring to make a product downright delicious when the proper proteins are used.

Another benefit of using only the highest quality protein fractions, that you are certain to notice right away, is that Phormula-1 will not bloat you at all and sits very light in your stomach, even with Ignition post workout. The bloating issue is a HUGE difference that you will definitely notice with other isolates immediately. Phormula-1 assimilates instantly and doesn’t sit in your stomach for 45 minutes, like some other products. You’ll feel fresh and light, not heavy and bloated. More importantly, you’ll be ready to eat your next meal to keep your body in an anabolic state of growth.

At the end of the day, it comes down to results. Plain and simple. Phormula-1, like Level-1, is a product that you can feel working right away. It’s like nothing else you have ever tried. Your muscles are harder, you feel stronger and you perform better in the gym almost right away. You will feel refreshed, recovered and full of energy as opposed to worn down and sore. It doesn’t take long for you to definitely see the difference in the mirror as well. It’s amazing what your body is capable of when given the highest quality materials to work with! If you haven’t already tried it, do so. You don’t know what you’re missing!

The post I just picked up the new Phormula-1 today and one thing that shocked me is that the flavor is very light, crisp and refreshing. I love it! I was expecting a strong flavor like some of the other fruity proteins on the market. It’s like I can’t even taste the protein. It’s very different than anything I have ever tried. Great job on this one!!! appeared first on 1st Phorm.
