REVIEW: Dymatize Elite XT Protein

Posted by:

This is the protein supplement I am currently using and I’m very happy with it! I’ve only tried Rich Vanilla and Rich Chocolate as I’m not the type to experiment with those odd protein flavorings(blueberry, cake mix, ice cream, cherry, strawberry, etc..). Originally when I first started using whey protein I went with Optimum Nutritions 100% Gold Standard which is indisputably one of the top protein brands on the market. Over the past few years the price of whey has skyrocketed (along with shipping/gas rates) which in turn has substantially raised the prices of protein supplements. I believe ON is an excellent product but due to the price I had to start sampling other products.

The two most recent products I’ve tried are Dymatize Elite XT protein and’s generic brand protein. The two flavors of EliteXT that i’ve tried are excellent, a very thick, rich & creamy taste. Many shakes will leave a film over your teeth and a poor aftertaste in your mouth…neither of which is a problem w/ EliteXT. The mixability is excellent, I throw a scoop of EliteXT, 8oz of vanilla almond milk and a few cubes of ice in a Blender bottle, shake and never end up with those chunky powder globs or dried protein goo on the side of the bottle.

The price is very affordable for such a high quality product (thats why I gave it a shot in the 1st place). For a 4.4lb tub it’ll run you between $28.75 and maybe $37 depending upon where you get it.

Lastly (and most importantly), its a quality product. High protein, no sugar, low calorie with a rich blend of amino acids and milk derived proteins. Nutrition facts below. I’ve permanently decided to make the switch from’s Whey Protein Blend w/ BCAA’s to Dymatize for the foreseeable future.
