Ultramyosyn Whey by Mertrx represents their attempt at the moderately priced whey protein market. Metrx has shifted their attention away from powerlifting consumers and towards the assumably more profitable and pervasive bodybuilding minded consumer. The product is priced very economically and in fact less than Optimumís 100% whey - the gold standard by which moderately priced whey proteins are usually judged. With a typical price of approximately 20% less than Optimumís 100% whey, Ultramyosyn Whey represents a competitive product, but how well does it compare to Optimum in terms of taste, consistency, and ingredient profile is another matter. Lets take a deeper look at this contender.
The taste of Ultramyosyn Whey (chocolate) is fairly rich and thankfully not overly sweet. The chocolate flavour is by no means comparable to something like a syntha-6, however it is flavourful and drinking the protein with nothing more than milk presents no problems. With the addition of a banana, Ultramyosyn Whey and milk makes a delicious shake. The solubility of the powder is fairly high. Although it is an instantized product, the product does not dissolve as easily in as some other proteins when mixed with a spoon in a large glass. I noticed that the product becomes considerably viscous when over-mixed in a blender. The incidence of much dreaded protein lumps was a rare occurrence thankfully.
The ingredient profile of Ultramyosyn Whey represents a solid run of the mill "standard" whey protein formula that is for the most part, a very common formula found in most products in this price range. the primary ingredient in Ultramyosyn Whey is Whey protein concentrate, followed by whey protein isolate. Although the product contains whey protein isolate, the ratio of this ingredient compared to concentrate is unknown. Unlike Optimumís whey where whey isolate is the first ingredient, Ultramyosyn Whey contains predominantly concentrate, an ingredient generally less sought out than isolate. The product is void of any added digestive enzymes that are found in Optimumís product. Although the benefits afforded by the addition of digestives enzymes to a whey product are not always completely clear. This is another area where Ultramyosyn Whey does not keep up with Optimum. The sweeteners used in Ultramyosyn Whey are non caloric and aspartame free, a concern many people have when choosing a whey protein.
In conclusion, Ultramyosyn Whey by Metrx offers a quality concentrate and isolate blend that is sure to satisfy most gym goers needs. The product is competitively priced, tastes reasonably well and mixes smoothly. I recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a quality, value priced whey product.

|Optimum Serious Mass Serious weight gain requires serious calories. However, those who need the extra calories most, often have the toughest time consuming enough of them.
