“Absolutely love this protein!! Incredible taste, the macros are spot on, and it mixes/blends better than any other protein I’ve tried.”
WHAT IT IS
Our Flagship Protein.
This protein formula is as pure as it gets. With 25g of protein and over 6g of BCAAs — entirely from intact and hydrolyzed whey protein isolates — R1 Protein helps support the recovery and growth aspirations of the most ardant muscle builders.
- 25g fast-acting protein†
- 100% of protein from whey isolates and hydrolysate isolates
- 6g+ BCAAs^^†
With all these pluses come some very positive negatives:
- ZERO Gluten**
- ZERO Creamers
- ZERO Fillers
- ZERO Amino or Banned Substance Spiking
*PPP varies by flavor and is calculated as protein per serving (g)/serving size (g) x 100.
† Per serving
^^ Amino acids are naturally occurring and approximated.
**Excludes Cookies & Crème, which contains wheat gluten.
^ Weights are rounded to the nearest pound. Product sizing and servings per container vary slightly between flavors.
When to use it
R1 Protein provides essential amino building blocks to support muscle recovery any time, but is most effective when consumed immediately after workouts. Also, try it around workouts, between meals, or in the evenings before going to sleep.
Simply drop one (1) scoop of easy-mixing R1 Protein powder into 8 oz. of cold water in a shaker or 16 oz. glass. Shake or stir it up! Set your blender on high to make it extra smooth.
I tried Cafe Mocha one. The other flavor hasn't tried yet.
Cafe Mocha is a bit sweet. I rather have selection for level of sweetness in product purchase. I blend powder with other food to bring down sweetness.
It’s not a bad isolate but I paid a premium hoping it would taste better than other proteins since it comes at a higher price point than others. That said it tastes identical to the bulk buy protein at Costco. It’s because of this and the fact that rule one has a cancer warning while other proteins do not that I unfortunately won’t be buying anymore and sticking with the other brands.
The chocolate mint flavor is just like a girl Scout thin mint cookie.
Great product, good taste, good mix ability. Stock up during a BF sale and you’ll get a good price too.
Rule One makes quality products. The chocolate fudge is low in sodium and tastes great!
