Are you looking for a quality protein product at a reasonable price? I have a closer look with our Body Fortress whey protein review to see how it really stacks up. You might be surprised, I was.
Body Fortress Whey Protein Review Nutritional Information
Nutritional Claim Body Fortress whey protein falls into the budget Lean whey protein category. The main claim from the marketers of the “Super Advanced” Whey protein is you will achieve improved recovery though 12G BCAA as well as a “Super recovery” blend. Another interesting claim is that it is “More Powerful than normal whey protein”.
Body Fortress has 30 grams of protein per 50g scoop, so its not too bad for a Whey Concentrate formula. As you would expect, it does have a little more Sugar (3g) and Fat (4g) that you would like but a 200Cals per serve, all but the most extreme dieters will be satisfied.
Where Body Fortress get a little “super advanced” is how it advertises on the packing as a 60g premium protein. What you will find when you flip over the tup and read the nutritional information is that you need to down a huge 100g (two scoops) to get that 60g protein hit. It’s not likely many users can down the 100g shake in a single sitting without entering a comatose state.
Reviewing The Taste of Body Fortress Protein
Body Fortress has a few different flavors on amazon, I could choose from chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and cookies and cream. I know that some companied have heaps of flavors, but as long as the few flavors they have are good, I’m satisfied.
But variety aside, how does it actually taste? It was pretty good, about the middle of the pack from my experience. I recommend chocolate if you are mixing with milk, or cookies and crème if you like to mix with water.
The warning sign of cheaply processed Protein in my experience is chalkiness and having a bitter aftertaste, but I didn’t get any of that with Body Fortress. The flavor is good enough to mask the aftertaste, and while I’ve tried better, it’s tasty for the price.
A two pound tub of this stuff goes for about $18.50, and has 27 scoops in it. If you take one scoop a day, it’s actually a decent value. You’ll be paying less than a dollar every day to get your protein fix, so it’s good if you’re on a budget.
Some protein brands offer bigger sized tubs for a better value, but the newest edition of Body Fortress does not seem to have that offer. Luckily, it’s still a good value, so no harm done.
What Are the Reviews Saying?
On its Amazon page, Body Fortress has received mostly positive reviews. There are 568 reviews with a total of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Customers seem to love the flavor, how much protein Body Fortress has, and the price. If you’re a bodybuilder on a budget, you may want to check this out. With that said, there are a few negative reviews.
Some are complaining about the formula changing. This is common in the world of protein supplements. The company changes the formula, and the customers preferred the old one. Sometimes, it’s the taste that changes, other times, it’s the texture, and sometimes the nutritional value changes. The complaint about this change is that the product now has less protein per scoop, thus costing more.
Another criticism is the quality of the protein itself. Recently, there has been some controversy about protein supplement companies using amino acids to make their products appear to have more protein than it actually has. Some are saying Body Fortress does that. I don’t know the truth about these supplements, but it comes around to getting what you pay for. This is a supplement for those on a budget, so the quality isn’t going to be as good.
Finally, there are some gripes about the amount of cholesterol in the powder. It gives you 27% of your daily value of cholesterol per serving, so if you’re watching your cholesterol, you may want to look elsewhere.
Body Fortress Protein Review – Pros
- A good value for those on a budget
- Product offers a decent amount of protein per serving
- The taste is good
- Low calorie
Body Fortress Protein Review – Cons
- The quality of the protein is a bit questionable, but you do get what you pay for
- There is a debate over how much protein you get per scoop
- High in cholesterol
Can I Recommend Body Fortress Protein?
Body Fortress is a decent choice if you are on a budget, and a better choice that going with a super budget no name supplier. The reality with protein is that you tend to get what you pay for, so you are not getting the highest quality protein if you’re paying $20 for a bucket of powder, but it still does its job if you need to supplement your protein intake.
It is a good alternative to some of the higher-priced blends. So I can recommend it if you’re low on funds.
