Yea just like in the title, why torrent has only 20 grams of protein in 3 scoops? Is it like a marketing thing or theres a purpose behind it? Bcoz many bodybuilders say 50 grams of protein pwo and then a meal. If you follow that you'll end up using 7-8 scoops which means roughly 60 grams of sugar and 120 grams of carbs and a new order in 10 days.. But at the same time everybody talks about the torrent. So is there something that I am missing?

Torrent has 20 grams of Partially-Hyrdrolyzed Whey protein which means it passes through your liver and gets absorbed quicker than regular protein. Torrent has 3Grams of Creatine in it, A heavy dosage of Leucine the Amino Acid which is very anabolic and stimulates protein synthesis, and 7grams of performance optimisers such as Glutamine, Citrulline Malate and Taurine plus more. All on top of that you have 52 grams of High glyceamic Carbohydrates which spike insulin very well too shuttle Nutrients into muscles. Torrent is everything but your regular protein drink.
In simple terms you've got this
-20 grams of Partially Hydrolyzed Protein
-Basically a bottle of Gatorade the serving
-3 Grams of Creatine
-2 Servings of A BCAA product
-Glutamine,Taurine + Other goodies

Very good post workout shake.

All up man, protein gets broken down into Amino Acids - there are non essential and essential amino acids. Protein contains both and post workout your body has to break them down and use the essential ones so why not take out the breaking down of the protein and give your body straight ESSENTIAL amino acids and not the ones you don't need. Anyone who knows thing or two about supplements will see torrent is great, just do your research and read. Give it a try and see for yourself.

People often raise an eyebrow at a product boasting only 20g protein, but its not ordinary whey protein concentrate/isolate. Its hydrolyzed whey, meaning it'll be absorbed much quicker/more efficiently compared to ordinary whey. Plus, protein isn't the most important ingredient postWO; carbohydrates are (when looking to bulk up).

I haven't used any type of protein postWO in about a year, and I've had the most successful year yet ..

Remember that your post workout shake or concoction is not meant to be a meal replacement. You should be eating a whole food meal within an hour of your post shake anyway. A post workout shake is just to get you back on track and then ready to go again in an hour. Torrent has it all.

Surviveor took the words away from me, it is ment for a quick flood of the right nutrients in your body, then you should be eating a meal about an hour later. Not another protein shake, solid food. It been working great for me over the last 3 months. I will be keping it in from now on.

I throw in a scoop of Ultra Whey Pro. That brings it up to 50 grams. I don't go home and eat right away.

It's a solid supp from what I've heard, I think of Sorrent as the Son of Lava. If that makes sense hahaha, but seriously; similar profiles got your creatine, carbs and protein plus taurine and extras. Torrent is just more advanced
