Any good protein powders w/out creatine?
I just realized my whey powder had creatine added, they said it is anywhere from 3-6 grams a scoop on some other sites I googled. I bought Body Fortress, and I found that it had some creatine in it by reading the fine print when on the front of the tub it doesn't say anything about creatine.
Is this a bad thing? Should I still be taking my morning creatine as prescribed in the book? Any good ones that you know of? Hopefully there are some out there that aren't $30 a tub. Thanks in advance!
The Best Answer
I actually have to add creatine to my shakes in the morning, so if yours has it already, then that's 1 less step in the morning for you to deal with. Don't take extra creatine with it since there's already 3-6 grams. Also, most of the protein powder tubs I've bought cost somewhere around $30, so I think that's normal price-wise (and that's without creatine).
As for the taste, I've never tried Body Fortress, but I think Optimum Nutrition and Syntha 6 taste pretty awesome, neither of those have creatine, just BCAAs and L-Glutamine. Syntha's got more fat & carbs than Optimum, but tastes way better in water. I've also tried Solgar vanilla whey protein, and I've been mixing that together with Syntha 6 in the morning these days.
I tried a single serve bottle of About Time a few weeks ago. The cinnamon roll (I think) was an interesting break from the usual flavors. I'd like to try the birthday cake flavor but I have about 5 pounds of Nature's Best Zero to get through before I buy more. The Nature's Best is really good too though.
There's tons of good protein powders without creatine. There's a few Favorites mentioned on this site in other posts along with some prices comparisons. Unflavored Whey protein is recommended by Tim.
Body Fortress is probably the worst tasting shake I'd tried btw.
You could probably just calculate the grams in the shake and supplement the rest to reach your goal dose.
