I take 1tsp unflavoured IBCCA per litre during my workouts and it couldn't be better. I use it to aid in recovery. Drinking it unflavoured is fine, just don't expected it to taste like a tropical party in your mouth. I drink it plain or add a little orange stevia flavouring if i feel like it.
The perfect alternative to whey protein
Posted by Brent Raiteri on 05 Feb 2014
Professional Whey has improved the taste and dissolvability of their BCAAs since my last purchase. In comparison to other BCAAs on the market I have found this is a better quality, cheaper and less bitter product. I mix 5 g of BCAAs with 300 mL of water before and after my workouts, before bedtime and first thing in the morning.
Easy to use

I add to my pre and post shakes. Mixes easily I don't notice any bitter or bad taste.
Another outstanding value-for-money product from Professional Whey

Excellent value BCAA's. Professional Whey's IBCAA is not only cheaper than other brands, its a better quality product. I won't buy anything else - A+ (I combine with Arginine AAKG and its a great pre-workout mix). Tastes nasty but so do all quality, pure BCAA's - add a little lemon juice if you can't handle the taste (you do get used to it however). Thanks Professional Whey!
Tastes fine and mixes well

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.
