What You Should Know
We counted more than 20 varieties of protein powder on the Protein Factory website. Most have the same basic ingredients, which leads us to believe they keep producing more to convince the visitor to order more products. The Sonic Protein supplement claims to be a cutting-edge protein perfect for pre or post-workouts. Bodybuilding protein shakes typically have a source of carbohydrates that drive calories counts. Sonic Protein includes dextrose, a form of sugar, as the carbohydrate source.
Protein Factory lists all products for sale from the official website. Visitors can expect to pay average prices for supplements, though it may be confusing deciding which protein is the right protein. Sonic Protein is not for use by dieters wishing to include a protein MRP (meal replacement shake) in the weight loss diet.
List of Ingredients
Hydrolyzed Caseinate (PeptoPro), Dextrose, Natural and Artificial Flavor and Sucralose.
There are 61 grams of carbohydrates in one serving of Sonic Protein. It seems a bit crazy to add an artificial sweetener to a protein powder with that many grams of sugar. The protein levels are extremely light at only 14 grams per serving, so the bodybuilder is getting a carbohydrate supplement with a dash of protein instead of a protein shake.
Protein is important for muscle growth and recovery. Carbohydrates work like a train, carrying protein to the muscles. We understand the theory behind adding carbohydrates, but we are not sugar 61 grams of carbohydrates compared to 14 grams of protein is what the average bodybuilder is looking for.
We looked through some of the other, higher-priced protein powders by Protein Factory and noticed that rice sugars are used commonly used. The descriptions claim dextrose is a bad form of sugar.
Sonic Protein sells for $22.50 for a three-pound container. This is the average price for protein powders.

In the world of bodybuilding, carbohydrate / protein shakes are commonly used before and after workouts. Carbohydrates are important for moving protein to muscles. We are not sure, however, that the carbohydrate / protein balance in this supplement is ideal. We typically see more protein in shakes of this variety.
Dieters will get no benefit from taking Sonic Protein. Without vitamins and minerals, the powder cannot be used as a meal replacement shake. Protein Factory should include testimonials and clinical trials to back up supplements.
