Product Review: Blue Star Nutraceuticals ISO-SMOOTH

The product we are reviewing this time, is a protein from the Canadian company Blue Star Nutraceuticals. Based in Belleville, Ontario, these folks take supplements very seriously, with purity, potency, honesty & results as the primary focus.
A small introduction can be found here.

We are going to have a closer look at their protein, called Iso-Smooth. The flavor is Chocolate Sin, and that sounds very promising. We like love chocolate. Period.

As usual, we'll look at 4 things:

- ingredients
- macros
- mixability
- taste with water and/or (almond) milk


There are 10+ ingredients, but what we quite like, is the blend of whey, milk, egg & casein. This provides a very complete protein profile. The usual binders like xanthan gum, carrageenan & cellulose are next, with the flavorings, sweeteners & enzymes to complete the list. Not really short, but not bad either.


In short, they are excellent. A scoop of 36 grams will provide 30 grams of protein, 1 grams of carbs and 1 gram of fat. You get your money's worth in protein.


Another winner! Honestly, you don't really need a blender, just shake it up a few times in a shaker cup, and it's ready to go. However, mixing it with a proper blender does make it a bit more creamy, thanks to the presence of the casein.


First test is with water, and we were not disappointed. The advantage of making a protein blend, is that the other proteins complement each-other, but also add more taste to the mix. It passes the water test with flying colors.
Since the water test came out great, we weren't really too concerned about the milk test, and with good reason. Milk only add more creaminess to the shake, and tastes great.
Rating: 5/5

The verdict

This is an excellent product, and you will not be disappointed. However, if you're on a budget, this product might be a bit much; 1 tub (25 servings) is $44.99 (if you 2 or buy more, a discount is applied)
But again, it's a product that delivers on all fronts, and they are even that confident about it, that they offer a 60 day money back guarantee.
