If you are referring to ON 10lb whey packet, the neulife sticker price on that is 7600/-
Reliance sells it at 6900 after 10% discount. So, if you got it at 6300/- thats a 20% discount

I just commented about cookie cream, not that I bought and used it. Any flavour is a chance taking, so I trust only my own taste buds.

Infact I never counted, because buying fruits is always wife's routine. And remember, gone are those days where you used to get apples straight from the farm. Now it goes through a processing that can preserve them for over a month with the special wax coating, injecting things into it etc.

Going to city market from my place is 2 hours up and down. Bigbazar gives a decent pricing I think. I am not too sure. I use milk for a whey shake !

I called him yesterday and he said I have to wait atleast 3 days, because there is absolutely no STOCK. May be he will call me when its available.

There are far better whey proteins out there which are more effective, taste better and cost lesser than ON 100% Whey.

The price at which people buy their ON 100% Whey in India falls in the region of 100% Pure Isolate.
Please state the brands and also which are the ones with 100% pure isolate. Do we get these in India.

Yes we do get Isolate in India. Just to name a few:

Intrapro - Gaspari Nutrition
Isoflex - Allmax Nutrition
Isopure - Nature's Best

Whey prices worlwide have gone up and the dollar rate has also pushed up the prices of imported Whey. Still ... If you have the right sources, you get it a lot cheaper than the Reliance price, not that I'd ever ask anyone to buy ON. I couldn't agree more with 1-Test when he says ON is the MOST overhyped whey EVER!

I haven't seen pure Whey Isolate in a 10Lb. pack yet; they're generally available in 2 or 5lb packs.
If you get Neulife products in Bangy, you should get Isopure since they're the importers (I think)

Will try and find out if the other products are available in Bangalore.

Prices of Whey has increased but to no that extent what NEULIFE charges. (In previous quarter, prices have cooled down as a matter of fact)

Think about it, ARC DISTRIBUTORS imports Gaspari Nutrition Myofusion into India at the same time; Myofusion 5 lbs costs equal to ON 100% Whey 5 lbs (FOB, any major port USA) and yet when it reaches the shelves here, it wholesales/retails less than ON 100% Whey.

Macros/Taste/Quality-Wise and in just about any department, MYOFUSION owns ON 100% Whey hands down.

NEULIFE never prices its products competitively and good for a good reason; there wasn't any competition for the past so many years.

Right now, there are way better options at much cheaper price.

I meant this with respect to prices a couple of years ago.

Has anyone bought anything from lbnutrition.com ? Lbnutrition.com - India's Premier Advance Sports Nutrition Superstore I am getting a shock looking at this page. Myofusion which is quoted Rs.3650 after 15% discount from Neulife is quoted Rs.2900 on this site. They charge 300 or around that figure for shipping within India too. Still thats way below whats eaten by neulife after their so-called discount. Anyone could comment on this ?

This time I am following Vikram with all due respect. You can call up Ravikumar for Neulife items on 9886595983. I am still cross checking the price difference within India itself. Need to stick to a place where we can expect best pricing, genuine product and timely delivery. Will update tomorow.

...and still no information on buying in Mumbai.

And shaju, are you going to neulife outlets and buying? Because I never saw Myofusion there

As for all the ON bashing, it's not so bad, the mocha flavour is good and for 3400 for 5lbs i'm not complaining. That is neulife price, it will go cheaper elsewhere.
