Progenex FLOW

Alright-
I've seen all the videos from this weekend about Progenex Flow and wanted to see thoughts or insight others have on this. I've heard it's sweet but the thought of hydrolized salmon protein has me wondering. Is this truly a midday protein to replace my other protein?

Re: Progenex FLOW

It would just be a different source of supplemental protein. I'm curious, what are they charging for this product?

Re: Progenex FLOW

@Chris- that is something I am looking to see as well. I haven't heard anyone using salmon protein as a primary source before but seeing the final nutrient breakdown is what I really want to read. Would it have more or less than their current whey... I know I'm waiting to see/hear more

Do you mean the amino acid profile? I'm sure it would be fine.

Supplement companies are always looking for the new form of protein supplement to market because milk proteins have gotten horribly expensive and have poor profit margins as a consequence. Fish protein might be a viable alternative and that is why I am curious what they are charging.

Re: Progenex FLOW

I have a friend who made a post about it on FB today. I'll ask him tomorrow if he knows anything.

My guess is fish protein would be an alternative for those who like fish and cannot or will not digest milk products. I have a friend who swear as fish as the best meat protein and blah blah blah whatever wacko stuff he adheres to besides tin foil hats.

Re: Progenex FLOW

Probably costs more than most can pay on a monthly basis.

Agreed, Progenex is too expensive. Looking at their more muscle product I see that 2 scoops has 31g of protein and there are 30 servings that size in a bag. And what does that bag retail for? I believe it's like $70 plus tax. My ON whey has 71 servings of 24g protein and I paid $50. My nitrean protein that I got on one of Chris's sales comes out to similar price/serving as the ON whey

BTW Chris I got it last night. I do enjoy the dutch chocolate flavor a lot, thanks!

Re: Progenex FLOW

John, would you say the Dutch Chocolate is better than the Double Chocolate ON whey?

My friend gets his ON from Amazon in bulk but said the chocolate on wasn't half bad. Which means it wasn't really good and it was tolerable. In the past I was pretty much always got Vanilla flavored protein products unless I picked up some MuscleMilk on the go (and switched between choco and vanilla).
