Cellucor COR-Performance Whey Review
Protein Type and Content
Cellucor COR-Performance Whey is a whey concentrate/isolate blend with digestive enzymes (protease A-S, lactase), which makes this a good choice for those who are lactose sensitive or have digestion issues. At 24-25g of protein per serving, its claimed and actual protein content are very close, which in this day and age is a definite plus.
Other Nutritional Information
Other than that it’s a pretty standard protein, with 120 calories per serving with 1g of fat and 4g of carbs with 1g of sugar. The cholesterol level of 35mg per serving is also on the lower end of our compared brands.
Taste and Mixability
For me personally, I found the taste varied greatly depending on selection. Molten Chocolate and Cinnamon Swirl were great; Red Velvet Cake? Urgh! General consensus on line appears to be the same and varies greatly depending on the flavor chosen. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with the ‘staple’ flavors, chocolate and cookies ‘n’ cream.
Mixability is a minus point for this protein powder, I found it hard to mix manually and it’s best done with a blender. This may prove cumbersome for those who take their protein ‘on the go’, or just pack the powder in their shaker to consume after the gym. Unfortunately, the dreaded ‘protein clumps’ may prove to be an issue with this product.
Good value for money, addition of digestive enzymes a plus for those with lactose sensitivity or digestion issues. Taste varies greatly according to flavor; product is also hard to mix manually. I like that the actual protein matches closely with the stated amount of protein on the label.
