Lactose - free, 20g protein per serving, 16 vitamins and minerals - and the taste is fine.

This is a moderate to high exercise recovery product, designed to be taken post exercise, which contains 20g of protein per serving,
Looking to up my cycling fitness levels and particularly my muscle strength to fight encroaching disabilities I was delighted to see that this product includes leucine, which is a top-level muscle building product. It also contains a full range of minerals and vitamins, one serving containing from 15% to 57% of the recommended daily allowances across a range of 16 vitamins and minerals.
I used a standard stick blender and jug to prepare the product, since an incident with a ill fitting shaker lid. The REGO powder dissolved well and the taste - ours was chocolate - was perfectly acceptable.
I mixed it with water, as recommended as mixing it with milk slows down the absorption rate and the product is obviously meant to be absorbed quickly, the standard dose being 50g of powder for 500ml of water.
The maltodextrin carbohydrates are easily digestible and unlike some other products, particularly those that contain lactose, there were no unpleasant side effects, .
In summary, a cost-effective premium product, suitable for dairy intolerant users. There are many post - exercise rehydration and recovery products on the market, this one does stand out as a very good buy.
