Ingredients

carbs, fats and calories. So, its nice to see that its the first kind of protein in Prostar. It comes with added cocoa, artificial sweeteners like sucralose, acesulfame potassium and soy lecithin to improve mixability which is in acceptable intake range.
Nutrition profile This supplement comes in many sizes – 1, 2 ,5.28 and 10lbs. Apart from having 25 gm protein per serving (30gm), it contains 6g of BCAA which again makes it a winner among competitors.

creamy taste even when taking it with water. It makes milk taste like cream with cocoa dash. Also, it has a good mixability with both of them at room temperatures which is probably due to soy lecithin. However, there have been complaints about
lump formation while mixing it with cold water/milk. Value for money You can purchase 2.4kg pack for Rs. 3648 (mar’18). For this price you’ll get 1.99 kg protein.
