Friday Favorite: Genepro Protein Powder

Friday, May 15, 2015
I am relatively stubborn when it comes to products I know and love and my protein powder happens to be one of those things. As much as I love it though, it isn't exactly convenient to use outside of home. Yes, I'm one of those people that prefers her protein powder blended with almond or coconut milk and ideally with a frozen banana and some almond butter. Yep, not convenient at all.

When my friend and fellow gym rat, Leslie, told me about Musclegen Research Genepro Protein Powder and how it can be blended with any beverage or sprinkled on food, I had to give it a shot.

First a little about Genepro Genetic-Tri Protein Peptide (From their website)
"The combination of the Tri-Protein and the way it is processed along with the addition of protease enzymes, allows for the equivalent of a 30gram serving of protein with only a 1 TBSP serving size. With the small granule nature of this protein, it allows the powder to mix almost instantly in any beverage (hot or cold). It is flavorless and odorless and does not change the consistency of the beverage. Coffee, juice, soda or any item you may be drinking, can now be your source of the most complex and complete protein. This electrophoresis process allows us to remove bacteria and impurities in the base protein for immediate absorption into the system and bypasses the intestinal digestive system by 94%. Compare this to Whey Isolate that has an absorption rate of only 31%, making Genepro three times more effective than any other protein on the market. Genepro is ideal for individuals with gluten sensitivity, lactose intolerance, diabetics and bariatric patients. Because of this immediate absorption your body peaks with a surge of insulin 10 times more anabolic than Testosterone. This will also trigger your thyroid from a molecular level to match the surge of insulin causing your body to be in a full anabolic and fat burning state, while supplying the muscles with the world's most complete and usable protein. This combination feeds the muscles and aids in the repair and the building of new muscle at a record rate. The evolution of performance supplementation is here and it goes by the name of Genepro."
 The moment I read that one tablespoon yielded 30 grams of protein that could be mixed in ANY BEVERAGE hot or cold. I was sold. Such a small portion size makes this incredibly portable as well as convenient to use.
I just love the tiny little scoop!!! 

But how was it? 

Mixed in my morning cup of coffee with a splash of cream and a little stevia, I saw no difference in taste. It also blended well in my gluten free pancake recipe without altering the flavor or texture of the pancakes. I have also mixed it in my vitamin drink and aside from making it cloudy, I didn't notice any change in flavor. Black iced coffee was a bit different however, changing the color slightly as well as the flavor but not so much that I disliked it.

Most importantly, the whey based protein caused no gastric distress unlike some of the other proteins I've used in the past. Another win, in my book.

All in all, it is a new staple and I'm already on my second bag and keep finding new ways to incorporate it into my diet.

Check them out. 

Genepro is available online here. A 30 serving container is $41.99.

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for sharing this nice post. I want to say, I love this protein powderr and I've very picky when it comes to protein. It works great in shakes and cold drinks or snacks. It did not work well in a hot drink. I couldn't even drink it after putting it in. It clumped up and looked horrible and tasted even worse. Thank you...

  2. I found out about this powder from a friend and it has changed my life. After having had wls the need for additional protein increased dramatically. I am lactose intolerant and was always bloated and constipated from using milk based protein powders. I have used this powder in sauces, drinks, I've even mixed it into ketchup, with no issues. For mixing into hot beverages you have to treat it like it's cornstarch and mix it with a bit of room temperature liquid. It mixes fine after that. Thanks for this post!
