I used to love the Goliath choc mint but that was years ago now. Otherwise unflavoured is a good bet as you can flavour it the way you like and you can use it easily in cooking.
i use HPLC by aussie bodies. their vanilla has whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, xylitol, stevia, natural flavours, calcium lactate. also mentions that soy lecithin is used to instantise??? whey protein and constitutes less than 2% of the finished product. tastes ok too. has 8g carbs /100g and 72g protein. hope this helps.:)
I'd like to know what tastes good before I go and buy anything & get started on BT.
Certainly anything soy turns me off, I really don't like that taste... I'm looking for a nice simple vanilla milkshake flavour thanks mmmmmmmmm.
Several years ago I tasted Herbalife (makes me shudder when I think about the taste). It was like wet hay.
I don't remember what the flavour was supposed to be... but it was awful!
I really like the Atkins shakes, not sure if they have the same protein and carb count as BT.
It is a personal taste thing really but I like how the Atkins ones are nice and thick because I really think the watery ones aren't as nice IMO
The HPLC ones taste good and are quite thick. the vanilla one is very nice and the chocolate one tastes good, but is not particularly chocolatey. read the ingredients lists carefully though - u can google that info. personally, i would choose fewer additives, no sugar and then grade them by taste.:) atkins bars have lots of additives, but i haven't read their shake labels. yes, i just did:) they have a couple of additives u may want to avoid such as sodium hexametaphosphate (listed as causing respiratory difficulties and pancreatic cancer in long term users:eek:) also lists soy protein isolate as an ingredient. i just keep reading, looking, googling etc. til i find something acceptable.
Hmmmm I wonder is that the stuff that makes it thick I may have to go back to the metagenics one, mind you I haven't totally sussed that one out either.
