They say things are bigger in Texas and Cellucor, a sports nutrition supplement brand from the nutritional life sciences company Nutrabolt, is no exception. While the company began in 2002, the real explosive growth took a few years to happen, but when it did it landed them on Inc’s 5,000 “America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies” category in 2011 and 2012. You are probably familiar with the brand due to its main product line called the “Chrome Series” which has mirror like reflective silver containers, thereby differentiating themselves on the shelves of the thousands of retail locations where Cellucor is available. With such interesting product names as C4, NO3, CN3, CLK and D4, what at first glance might seem like strange knock offs of a well known Star Wars character, actually are super popular products backed by quality ingredients and well known fitness celebrities.
Cor Performance Whey is Cellucor’s lone protein powder offering, but what they may lack in the sheer number of products, Cellucor has more than made up for with a high quality product. Available in 2 or 4 pound jugs and 11 different flavors, Cor Performance Whey packs 25 grams of protein into every 35 gram scoop with only 1 gram of sugar. Combining both whey protein concentrate and isolate sources ensures Cor Performance Whey has both a robust amino acid profile and adequate BCAAs to fuel and recover from whatever your workout happens to be. Great shaker cup mixability with both water and milk rounds out the aspects of what we really liked about this product, giving Cor Performance Whey one of our highest ratings in the protein powder category.
