By MRM20 Reviews
Expiration Date: May 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Sustained Release Whey Protein Complex
Low Carb Protein delivers a unique source of amino acids by combining an Ultrafiltered Whey Protein Concentrate, Instantized Calcium Caseinate, Cross Flow Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate, and Glutamine. This unique blend offers a sustained release of "Fast & Slow" proteins, meaning that the amino acids enter the bloodstream at different rates. This allows for higher amino acid concentrations in the blood for longer periods of time, therefore, increasing nitrogen retention. Low Carb Protein is also remarkably high in Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), which are the most required amino acids needed to replenish muscle stores that are utilized during strenuous exercise.
The Next Generation Protein
The biochemists at MRM have taken protein supplementation to the next level, without the worry of wasting ingested protein. The addition of NitroZyme helps breakdown long and short chain amino acids into smaller, more readily absorbable amino acids for maximum digestion and absorption. Some concerns with the popular "high protein diet" used by many bodybuilders and dieters is that the body is unable to naturally digest high amounts of protein at one time. NitroZyme helps the body release more amino acids from ingested protein than digestive enzymes alone. So when individuals (men, women, seniors as well as athletes of all ages and sports) take Low Carb Protein enhanced with NitroZyme, the body can absorb more free amino acids directly into the muscles to increase muscle size, strength and lean body mass.
Each scoop of Low Carb Protein provides 23g of a unique protein blend of undenatured and easily digested and absorbable protein. This formula was designed to provide your muscles with all of the essential amino acids required for maximum muscle strength and development. Low Carb Protein mixes instantly, tastes delicious and is Aspartame Free!
Add one slightly heaped scoop (approx. 30 grams) of Low Carb Protein to a 3-4 oz glass of cold water, milk or juice. Protein supplementation is recommended between meals and/or immediately following your workout. Low Carb Protein mixes instantly, no blender or shaker required.
Low Carbohydrate Diet (Weight Management Program): A recommendation of 1 scoop per day for those trying to increase their dietary protein intake while decreasing intake of carbohydrates.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I was not a big fan of this flavor, which is odd because I love my other MRM purchases. I found the strawberry flavor very artificial, almost like a saccharine-sweet gum, and certainly couldn't taste the banana at all. However, I'll use it up in combination with other powders to mask the taste, since the nutritional stats are good.
Solubility is great, and I like that it's got the protein, but it's just not good. It's far too sweet. I've tried to choke it down but I just don't know if I'm even going to be able to use it. The directions were to add it to 4-6oz of liquid, and that was awful. It was like drinking syrup it was so sweet. I added it to a full 8oz of milk and it was still way too sweet. For me, this is a miss. It shipped really quick and the cost was great, which is why I'm still giving it two stars. And if you like your shakes super, super sweet, you might like this, but I can't handle it. Might try to use it in a protein bar recipe to add sweetness.
