    Cheap good protein powder

    Here's my meager contribution to the reviews on this site.

    Short story:
    I previously used cheap EAS soy protein which was OK, but now I use cheap Genisoy because it's better.

    Long story:
    I'm not on any training regime; I use protein supplements because I don't get enough protein in my diet and don't want to drink a ton of milk.

    I used EAS protein powder (Target, Walmart). It mixed well, tasted fine, and was cheap. No major complaints. Recently I noticed Genisoy at Walmart (not at Target so far) and tried it out. It was a finer powder, which also mixed well and tasted ok (though more bland/doughy). Though it is more expensive for a lighter container, it is cheaper per gram of protein.

    Quick stats:
    EAS
    Servings: 14
    Protein: 20g
    Carbs: 19g (17g sugar)
    Very few vitamins/minerals

    Genisoy
    Servings: 15
    Protein: 25g
    Carbs: 0g
    Lots of vitamins/minerals

    Apparently Genisoy is also more 'natural.' I did notice that after drinking EAS my whole body felt uncomfortably 'dry' (for lack of a better word), and after drinking Genisoy I feel fine.

    Where are the proteins coming from? My noobish understanding is that you'd want more protein coming from whey than soy, and I think EAS does that.

    Ever hear the adage "You get what you pay for?"

    Soy protein, while all-natural and vegetarian/vegan friendly contains plant estrogens, and while a little estrogen won't hurt you, using it as your primary source of protein and thereby taking it daily has the potential to flood your system with estogen.

    If you're not on a training regimen you probably won't care that it's reducing your testosterone levels, but you might be concerned when you start developing breasts.

    EDIT: Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Just regurgitating what I read in a men's health article.

    I recommend body fortress from walmart. $15 for two pounds.

    26 grams of protein per scoop with extra glutamine and it includes creatine. The only downside is that some ingredient doesn't dissolve too well and the bottom of my shake is always a little gritty. But otherwise it tastes good and has good stuff in it.

    Other possible downside: it has one of the artificial sweeteners in it (can't remember which one now). This may bother some people, I don't care though, I'd rather control my carb intake seperate from my protein intake.

    OP, unless you're a vegan, I'd recommend whey protein. All the veggie-protein I've ever eaten tastes horrible and I'm not really sure if there's much of a nutritional benefit to soy. Plus there's the estrogens debate.

    Soy protein really is worthless if you are trying to gain mass or even significant results in body building..

    You must be vegan if you have not tried anything other than soy based protein powders.. I really wish that I could say otherwise, but IMO there is no good protein for a vegan other than legumes and that is just not enough..

    Same thing as with the possibility of a B-12 deficiency.. That's just a common thing that goes with the territory of not eating meaty stuffs..

    Thanks for the posts. It costs somewhere around $10.

    I'm not a vegan and not currently vegetarian, but I like the idea of eating lower on the food chain.

    I was not aware of differences between proteins except for which amino acids they contain. I'll have to look into the soy thing. Besides the estrogen what's wrong with soy? Will my breasts go away or will I be stacked like Meatloaf?

    From what I understand, Whey Protein has the best bioavailability, and so is more readily absorbed by your body.
