If it fits your macros why not?
This is a good product for it's purpose. If you're someone who likes to hit their macros to a T then this is a great product as it is a quick and easy way to get your carbs in. I use it in my postworkout shake to add some carbs to it and replenish my energy levels. I feel like it makes a difference especially since my workouts have been pretty long recently and they leave me pretty fatigued. It's not a great massbuilder since it doesnt add much calories. Also if you have a protein that is already fairly sweet then a scoop or two of this might put it in the range of too sweet for some people so be sure to pair it with proteins that are more on the bland side. it's a good value as well it's lasted me months while using two servings for my postworkout shakes. I'd say try it out and see how you like it since it's not expensive when compared to other supplements.
not very good
Overall, this is just another example of a mass gainer product that is not very good. As a result, I would not recommend it. It's not bad with regards to price which is an anomaly compared to most mass gainers, but that's about the only positive. It is not essential to put on muscle when you can do it with food
Great simple carb source
This is a very easy simple carb to add to post-workout shakes and makes some bland proteins very enjoyable, that is if you have a sweet tooth. If you exercise and need an easy way to add some carbohydrates to your daily intake, then this is for you.
