Ultra Peptide 2.0 is a sustained release protein supplement that has been taken to the next level, this sustained-release micellar casein is engineered for lean tissue gain, over 50% of the protein in ultra peptide is from micellar casein, which can be used as a meal replacement at any time of the day, one thing that caught my eye was the extra muscle building ingredients that create the ultimate super gainer. This product is more than just a protein powder, ultra peptide includes macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients with an adequate amount of creatine monohydrate. Also for gut health ultra peptide includes a functional amount of rice oligodextrin which soothes the gut for maximum absorption, a healthy gut can make a massive difference to the gains you make.
Taste (Triple Chocolate)
As it states on the tub ‘perhaps the world’s best tasting protein powder’ this is the best tasting casein powder I have ever tried, I never get tired of the flavour, I have tried it with milk to and it tastes like a chocolate milk shake, at present I am mixing my shakes with water as I am dieting down and I will certainly be adding this to my diet before I go to sleep, when you try this you will honestly think to yourself ‘how the hell can this be good for me’
As far as mix-ability is concerned, it mixes perfectly well in both water and milk leaving a perfect thin consistency which does not leave you feeling bloated like some protein blends do, the only problem I have encountered is I always seem to end up with a bit of the powder moulded to the bottom/ side of my shaker, this is not a massive problem but it can be a nuisance when you don’t have access to a folk. I tend to mix my shakes in a smoothie maker but for the purpose of this review I have been mixing it in a standard shaker.
One criticism is that you can only get ultra peptide in 2lb tubs which can be inconvenient, for me its not a problem as I don’t use casein every night and only use it if I don’t have time to prepare a solid meal so for me a 2lb tub would last at least a month for others it could last weeks, given that this stuff is price competitive with other casein blends, I can’t recommend it enough if your looking for a great quality micellar casein powder that tastes amazing.
Overall, Xtreme Formulations Ultra Peptide casein protein, is by far the best tasting brand that I have ever tried and I have tried a lot of protein powders in my time, it is quite pricey for a 2lb tub but well worth it, I would go as far as saying I would never use another brand of casein powder again, I challenge you to find a better tasting micellar casein product out there.
