Protein

Hey all,

Does anything know where to order some decent whey protein or other gym supplements at a fair price ? I ordered a few months ago from myprotein but got hit with an extra payment when it came to the door. Im guessing tax or something ? Anyways Ive had a look at iherb already, prices are okay but delievery is too nuch. I was thinking ordering from ebay in German locations and that way maybe i can avoid the tax bill??

Re: Protein

No idea if that could be satisfying (I only got my coconut-oil from them). They deliver quickly (next day), with invoice the first time (might depend on the reputation ).

You ordered from myprotein.ch site? Should have been no extra charge unless i guess it shipped from elsewhere..

Quality wise though i think foodspring.ch is better, although more expensive.. But does ship from CH normally so no extra charge.

Can't beat the price of myprotien though, especially for all the extras like pancake mix and peanut butter powder!

I also like the QNT extra pure.. From oschner sport, it's around 60chf / kilo. I like that it's just protien.

Re: Protein

Do a forum search for "protein", I believe it has been discussed more than once and a lot of links were given.

Re: Protein

I get mine here, seems to be a fair total cost.

Re: Protein

For the last 18 months I've been buying a Swiss one. Try Sponser.ch. They have "pouches" of 2KG and it costs CHF110

Re: Protein

I tend to pick up a supply when in Singen or Konstanz shopping occasionally. The fitness store has a huge selection, especially in Singen. Depends what you are trying to achieve or use it for but a lot of the cheaper ones aren't worth it.. true its also debatable if expensive ones are also but that's another thread in itself!

Re: Protein

Re: Protein

www.powerfood.ch is really good.
they have a vast choice and usually ship within the same day from Switzerland, so you get your stuff the next day or in 2 days depending where you are in the country.
Obviously it isn't as cheap as US websites but you don't have the potential import tax and it's faster.

Depends on the amount.
Up to 60CHF (would need double checking) no extra charges, if the seller does deliver to CH.
Then even the 19% German MwSt. gets deducted.

I am using a postbox service for cases when they don't, but from Zurich might not be so convenient.

I've found the prices to generally be on a par with the UK.. MP Impact 2500g is 39.99GBP or 59.90CHF at PF

Re: Protein

Well i ended up ordering from here:
https://whey-protein.ch/cfm-molkenprotein/

Thats 1kg for just over 21chf, cant complain at that price!

I ended up getting two for around 43chf which would be 2kg and i think the delievery will take a day or two so cant complain about that

Re: Protein
