The flavoring on Phormula-1 is much lighter than other isolates on the because we designed it that way.
Phormula-1 is a very pure wheyt protein isolate 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 over 12 months of taste-testing, we found that the flavor doesn't matter when the quality isn't good as well. 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 our protein powder so that every one of our flavors, from chocolate and vanilla milkshake to key lime pie, would 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 that 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.
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, mix-ability 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.
And regardless of the flavor preference a person has, you simply can’t beat the taste or 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 is that Phormula-1 will not bloat you at all and sits very light in your stomach, even with Ignition post-workout.
Not having to deal with the bloating issue is a HUGE difference that you will definitely notice with Phormula-1 when opposed to other isolates.
That's because 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.
The plain and simple truth is that at the end of the day, it comes down to results. 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!
So do what's right for both your health and your workout, and try the best tasting protein powder out there! You don’t know what you’re missing!
