I love muscle feast products! I especially love this blend of protein due to the different types of protein and the flavors aren't too overpowering. Also I like that they don't use artificial sweeteners and they have great ratings on labdoor. I feel like muscle feast is a company you can trust and they are transparent and honest what they put in their products. I definitely recommend.
Great quality, good mixability and decent flavor
This was my first tub of the protein blend. I usually always buy the whey isolates. The blend chocolate flavor doesn’t taste as good as the chocolate whey isolates. However having a mix of proteins has seemed to be a bit better. Next time I’ll purchase one of each
This is a fantastic product. I had looked at a couple dozen different brands of protein powder during the first two years of my fitness transformation, and this is by far the best of those I found. It has the fewest number of ingredients of any other powder I looked at, while having excellent protein content.
Have done business for some time with Muscle Feast. Great place to do business; reliable, prompt serve; great products; their Premium Protein Blend is probably the best I have ever used.

What is it?
A protein blend is a combination of various sources of protein mixed in one product. The idea is by combining proteins with varying rates of digestion and absorption that muscle protein synthesis times will be optimized. For example, whey isolate ingestion leads to a rapid spike in amino acids levels which increases muscle protein synthesis more than micellar casein. On the other hand, micellar casein tends to have a more anticatabolic effect than whey isolates and prolongs muscle protein synthesis to a greater extent. In theory, the combination of the two means greater increases in lean muscle mass and shorter recovery times compared to when ingested separately.
What does the research say?
A 2006 study conducted by Kerksick et al. examined the influence of a “fast” protein source (whey) compared to a blend of fast and slow proteins (whey and casein), ingested post-exercise over a 10-week period of resistance training. Subjects who ingested the blend of fast and slow protein showed significantly greater increases in muscle mass (+1.8 kg) than those who ingested only the fast protein.
Who is it best for?
Blends are best for individuals who want to reap the benefits from having multiple sources of protein included in one powder.
How quickly does it digest/absorb and raise amino acid levels?
No research exists at this point showing how quick and how long protein blends elevate amino acid concentrations in the blood, but in theory, it should fall somewhere in the middle between whey and casein.
When is the best time to take it?
Protein blends are best taken 30-60 minutes pre-workout, immediately post workout, between meals or even right before bed.">
