    Cytosport is very popular in here, and there's been some confusion on the difference between their designer powders. Here's a basic breakdown. If you don't know the differences between these whey powder types, check my "Protein Powder Primer" thread. Maltodextrin is a medium-chain carbohydrate powder (corn starch).

    In order of composition:

    Complete Whey
    Whey Protein Concentrate
    Whey Protein Hydrolysate

    EvoPro
    Whey Protein Concentrate
    Casein Protein (specifically the best kind: Micellar Membrane Casein)

    Muscle Milk
    EvoPro
    Whey Protein Hydrolysate
    Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's)
    Maltodextrin (almost none)
    Added Glutamine

    CytoGainer
    Maltodextrin
    Whey Protein Concentrate
    Whey Protein Hydrolysate
    Added Glutamine
    Creatine


    Note: This is also to correct bad information I gave you. CytoGainer does not include MCT's.

    The EvoPro is the formula they use in the Muscle Milk (they just add thehydrolysates, MCT's and the scant amount of Maltodextrin).

    Yes, there is a good amount of casein. There is more casein in EvoPro than whey.

    Ted-P thats correct, the MCTs will burn as energy so you dont need carbs. I still mix my MM with milk though, hasnt made me fat yet.
