The big world of beef proteins is scary. Cow? Chocolate? Drinkable? It doesn’t make sense yet it’s intriguing at the same time.
Skinny Yoked investigates the beef protein trend in 2021 and compares some of the biggest sellers to help you make informed decisions.
Beef Standard vs. Musclemeds Carnivor vs. Muscletech Platinum Beef
Nothing get’s a man’s pulse quickening then the phrase “chocolate beef protein shake”.. or at least we get excited by the prospect of drinking our favorite meat.
There are many cases to be made in diversity and bioavailbility of nutrients in supplements, one of the reasons protein blends like Syntha-6 and Pro Jym are so popular.
Whey protein digests at a fairly rapid rate. The idea behind blends that include whey concentrate, whey isolate, egg white and micellar casein are that these different types of proteins all digest in different ways at different rates, thus prolonging MPS (muscle protein synthesis).
While egg/casein/whey combinations have been on the market for a while, a relatively newcomer has entered the scene and is making waves. Say hello to beef protein.
No products found.
Being a relatively new source of protein there aren’t that many makers. One of the most popular is Musclemeds Carnivor.
Another big brand to launch a line featuring protein is Musclepharm with their Iron Mass, which we did a long term review of here.
Still, there’s been a ton of speculation about the quality of these new beef proteins, as some have been found to be of less-than-desirable quality.
One brand that is completely transparent in the composition of their beef protein, and which has earned our enormous respect in doing so is Betancourt Nutrition with their [easyazon_link identifier=”B00RFU7KGK” locale=”US” nf=”y” tag=”skinyoke-20″]Beef Standard[/easyazon_link] protein.
Betancourt Beef Standard Review
- Fair protein per serving in grams? - 9/109/10
- Does it taste like something I could drink daily? - 5/105/10
- Mixability? - 8.5/108.5/10
- Does it have naturally occurring creatine? - 10/1010/10
- Does it mix well with other proteins like whey or casein? - 8/108/10
Betancourt’s Beef Standard is the best beef protein on the market, it cleans the floor with Musclemed’s Carnivor. The only other competitor is Muscletech but Betancourt usually comes in cheaper. We love adding this with other whey and whey blends like Gold Standard or Syntha-6 for the most bio-available protein shake known to mankind.
