USPlabs Cinnamon Rolls
One of the best things that I miss from my childhood was waking up to the smell of fresh cinnamon rolls. They were always so warm and the icing was always delicious! Fortunately, I have found a way to continue to enjoy these without all of the extra sugar and carbohydrates. These cinnamon rolls are so easy to make, and there are only five ingredients! USPlabs Vanilla protein helps to create the perfect icing. The perfect gift idea for the food lover!

I know what you may think, another protein product…really? The USPlabs team has put together yet another protein product. Since the discontinued OxyElite Protein, the void of a protein product was shortly filled with the newly formulated Modern Protein. The biggest question we get is, “Is it the same as OxyElite Protein? What makes this protein product different?”
The breakdown of proteins within the Modern Protein goes like this. The proteins are made up of Triple Isolate Matrix, Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Hydrolysate (fastest acting protein source) along with a part Whey Protein Concentrate and Micellar Casein (slow digesting protein source). With this blend, you get a part fast digesting and absorbing proteins and a part moderate to slow digesting and absorbing proteins, leaving you feeling full longer.
They also add a Lipid Matrix and Digestive Enzymes to this blend. The Lipid Matrix consists of Sunflower Oil, Mono & Di-Glycerides (healthy fatty-acids), Disodium Phosphate (salt like compound), Silicon Dioxide (a compound to absorb moisture), and Tocopherols (flavor protection)). Some may have issues breaking down a heavy whey concentrate or a caseinated protein, with the lipid and digestive support, this product should breakdown easy for a stress free digestive system.
Last but not least, the flavor. Although the competition of flavored protein on the market is high, most companies stick to the core flavors, Chocolate and Vanilla. This may be temporary but for now, the flavors USPlabs built – although basic – are delicious and can be consumed with good old H2O or mixes well in a blender/nutrabullet. The cost per scoop isn’t bad, some may ask, it is roughly $1.15 USD per scoop in the 2lb container and roughly $0.94 per scoop in the 5lb container. Both are now available.
