    We have a product in South Africa & Lesotho named Futurelife. They make various breakfast cereals and a product that caught my eye is their High Protein Smart Food. One can take it as a meal, a snack or smoothie. It has a blend of 3 protein sources - Whey, Caseinate and Soya. The list of ingredients reads as follows: Whole Maize Flour (NON-GMO), Whole Soya Bean Flour (Soya NON-GMO), SmartProtein blend[Soya protein isolate (NON-GMO), Whey protein islolate (NON-GMO), Skim milk powder, Calcium caseinate (milk)], Sucrose, Cocoa powder, Calcium carbonate, Inulin, Lecithin (Soya NON-GMO), Salt, Vitamins and Minerals.
    It's Typical Nutrional Value reads as follows (Per 100 g): Energy - 1460 kJ; Protein - 30 g; Glycaemic Carbohydrate - 36 g, of which Total Sugar 12 g, of which Sucrose 10.5 g, of which Lactose 1.5 g; Total Fat - 6.8 g; etc., etc.

    My question is, is it a good product to take a a pre and post workout supplement. They give a soothie recipe of 50 g Future Life High Protein powder, 250 ml skimmed milk, 2 Tbsp peanut butter, and 1 banana. I have been taking half of this before my workout and the other half after my workout along with a teaspoon (5 g) creatin half an hour before the workout.

    What do you guys think? Is this sufficient?

    Based on the information you provided, I would take it if I were in your shoes. I can understand that certain things that we have here are not available in your country. However, you have to make the best of what's available to you. There's nothing magic about supplements. They just provide the things we don't get enough of in our daily intake of food. If muscle gain is your goal make sure that your training program is spot on and then eat enough to support that. Good quality foods with protein, carbohydrate and fat to help you achieve your fitness goals.
