IDS Protein Shot?


Anyone ever hear about these things?

Some co-workers were carrying them around. Seem nice just cuz they're pretty portable, 42 g of protein, but I dunno about the quality...never heard of IDS.


The proprietary blend of proteins is "Collagen Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate, Casein Protein Isolate." Collagen is a low quality, incomplete protein. Since ingredients are listed in order of their abundance in the product, it seems that collagen is the primary ingredient in their proprietary blend. I'd pass on these.


i like the nitro-peak 50X- 50 grams of protein, the texture is... odd. Like soupy jello. They're perfect to down in the midst or before or after a training session.
