In their fifteen years, Max's have risen to become one of the best known supplement brands on the market, due in no small part to the huge popularity of Supersize, which is one of the most popular mass gainers around. To keep ahead of the curve, Max's are reformulating and rebranding their iconic range.

Max's SuperSize Protein Review

While Max's have updated the packaging throughout their protein range, they have made big changes to some of their products and minimal changes to others. SuperSize is in the latter category, with only a few tweaks to vitamin and mineral levels distinguishing the new formula from the previous. This implies that the formula was already optimised before the brand revamp, and is great news for existing fans of the product.

While many mass gainers adulterate whey with a protein blend that often includes egg and casein, Max's Supersize distinguishes itself from many other similar products on the market with a simple and effective formulation which uses whey protein concentrate as the sole protein source. Easily digested and readily absorbed, whey is the highest quality protein available, and the very latest Cross-Flow Micro Filtration technology is used to obtain a pure concentrate.

The inclusion of high quality products is something Max's are clearly proud of, as evidenced by the full and comprehensive breakdown of fractions in the whey protein. Not only are the amounts of each protein fraction included, but the biological function of each component is explained. This is the action of a company who take a lot of pride in the product they sell, and who also take an interest in educating their consumers. There are a number of great products on the market, but it is this mindset has bred community of customers who remain loyal to the Max's brand.

Max's SuperSize Nutritional Information

Some mass gainers are known for offering up a cocktail of carbs, like waxy maize, oat flour and fructose, alongside the protein. Continuing the theme of simplicity, Max's SuperSize utilises maltodextrin as its sole source of carbs. This has a number of benefits – maltodextrin mixes well and tastes great. High glycaemic index carbs like maltodextrin have their advantages. Aside from replenishing the body after exercise, they can be more stimulating to the appetite than a low GI

As the above nutritional breakdown shows, Max's SuperSize packs a ratio of just over two parts carbs to one part protein. This high carb content makes it ideal for people who have trouble gaining weight, or people who expend a lot of energy and need a big carbohydrate boost to replenish their stores of energy.

Max's SuperSize Taste & Mixability

Max's SuperSize is known for it's ready mixability and great flavour. Like many maltodextrin-based gainers, SuperSize has a great natural texture and taste, similar to a milkshake. The product is very well received, and is ideal for people who are fussy about the taste of their protein powders.

Max's SuperSize Packaging, Sizes & Flavours

The popular SuperSize formula may have stayed the same, but the packaging has been updated. Max's have chosen to retain their popular and distinctive bag inside a box design, and are manufacturing this in 1.2 and 4kg packages, providing 10 and 33 Servings respectively.

Supersize comes in Banana, Chocolate and Cookies and Cream Flavour. Unfortunately Max's have discontinued the triple pack which included all three flavours, but with a product as delicious as SuperSize, getting through a whole package of any flavour is easy.
