Tastes fine and mixes well
Posted by Louise Rose on 19 Sep 2013
I was a bit aprehensive about trying this. But add a bit of lemon juice and a pinch of stevia and it is like lemonade. It even tastes fine on its own. Best value product by far. Thanks PW!
Pure, great value

Dissolves easily. Tastes like any other pure branch chain, ie like crap, but that's what the pure BCAAs taste like, no way around it. Any flavouring or sweetener and it would not be the pure product! Easy enough to add some dextrose on your own to mask the flavour.
Throw a pinch of this in to your Post WO to aid recovery.
1/2 tsp in a drink bottle full of water, sip away at it intra-workout will help your muscular endurance across sets or through a
functional fitness workout. (it will also make your drink bottle smell bad within a week or two. Wash it out regularly!)
Cornerstone Nutrition and Perfect Product
Posted by cameron perry on 03 Jul 2013
A cornerstone of workout nutrition, and unlike most competing products is in a close to ideal ratio of the 3 constituents. Most BCAA formulas taste like death. This one tastes like a slight headcold; not pleasant, but it doesn’t really slow you down much. For pre and peri workout supplements it’s very hard to overlook BCAA’s. There’s a tonne of hard science backing them up and you’d be hard pressed to find many credible detractors of BCAA’s, and this ridiculously pure and inexpensive offering belongs in every fitness-minded persons pantry or batcave. It would be nice to see PW cover periwork out information on the ‘suggested use’ panel, but that is a pretty bloody minor imperfection on an otherwise seamless product.

I noticed a difference. Mostly faster recovery between sets. Tastes pretty bad. OK when mixed with Gatorade (BCAA 1 tsp, Gatorade 1 scoop, water 700ml +)

Great neutral taste , noticed quicker recovery when using this in a shake with other products I use from you guys !!
Makes a difference!

A noticeable difference in recovery since I've added this to the protein shakes (breakfast/pre/peri/post). The taste difference is minimal if you use dextrose & maltodextrin (pre/peri/post). Gives me the ability to up the pace, volume & performance in my workout schedule. Great value also when compared to other BCAA's on the market.

First time trying BCAA's, they're not too bad. Apparently not as crazy tasting as some other products - part of a standard IF now.
Flavouring may be an improvement
Posted by Brett Belcher on 26 Jan 2013
I have never tried a leucine supplement so am not familiar with it's taste or solubility. After reading the positive reviews here, I expected there to be no or minimal taste. My honest opinion is that it tastes terrible, remembering that I have no experience to compare it to. Currently experimenting with various flavours to improve my experience. Cordial and juice don't do it. A decent amount of cacao helps but it can still be tasted. Flavour suggestions welcome.
Nothing beats IBCAA!
Posted by Basil Subh on 12 Oct 2012
I've been looking for IBCAA in bulk for a while now so when I found out the PW were selling it I had to get it and I wasn't let down. The quality is as I expected to be and it mixes so well that you don't see all the fluff you usually see with regular BCAA and no after taste at all in whatever drink you put it in which is a bonus because regular BCAA does change the taste of your drink.
Worth every cent I paid for it and will become a regular by from PW for me
These Have Increased My Recovery
Posted by Rob Jarz on 28 Aug 2012
Great ratio of leucine, a sickly terrible taste on its own, mixes really well in water, or with other products to mask the taste. I have a heaped tsp with staminade and about 700 ml water and sip during a grueling workout, and then post workout with a quality protein, dextrose, maltodextrin and creapure creatine, all quality products from PW. I have found this product has increased my recovery dramatically. Keep up the quality.

Compared to other BCAAs this product dissolves easily and has the benefit that it can be taken with water alone without tasting too bad. The price for the high content of leucine is obviously it's major positive.
Dissolves easy and great for recovery
Posted by steve dulieu on 04 Jul 2012
Over many years I've
tried a lot of protein supplements. Your new 4-1-1 BCAA is far superior in my opinion. It dissolves easily, unlike normal leucine, and post-wokout recovery is a lot quicker.
