Here are the current top choices in the mass gainer category.

“A good mass gainer should help you to pack in a lot of extra calories without a lot of extra sugar and fat. They can be useful on days where you find yourself needing to fit your food in via shakes, or if you require a lot of calories to meet your daily requirements.” – Russ

1. Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass

If you’re going to go big with your protein shake, you might as well go very big.

And this is precisely why Serious Mass sits at the top of my mass gainer list.

For the last 10 years, this is a supplement I’ve had countless male and female clients use in order to pack in extra calories throughout the day when training to pack on size.

The interesting factors in this formula which set it apart from it’s competitors are the sky high carbohydrate content per shake – great for “hard gainers” – and the sugar content which is by comparison very low.

Nutrition breakdown per serving:

  • 49.9g protein
  • 4.8g fat
  • 252.1g carbohydrates
  • 21.3g sugar
  • 2.8g fibre
  • 0.5g glutamine
  • 1g creatine monohydrate

2. USN Muscle Fuel Anabolic

USN take second place, with Muscle Fuel Anabolic.

This product cannot compete with the huge serving of carbohydrates on offer in the choice above, it still packs a mighty punch and the serving is more evenly split between protein and carbohydrates, as opposed to heavily one-sided.

Consider this more of a meal replacement option.

Nutrition breakdown per serving:

  • 50.7g protein
  • 3.9g fat
  • 85.1g carbohydrates
  • 7.5g sugar
  • 1g beta-alanine
  • 1g HMB

3. Myprotein Impact Weight Gainer

Rounding out the list and providing great value for money is Myprotein Impact Weight Gainer.

This mass gainer might not provide the same carbohydrate hit as it’s competitors, but it is more flexible.

By providing only 44 grams of carbs per serving, you’ll find this easier to manipulate into your daily diet while packing a bigger protein hit – example; if you were to achieve the 252g carbs found in Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass via this product you’d also be consuming 159 grams of protein.

Again, sugar is kept very low and when it comes to mass gainers that’s a great thing.

Nutrition breakdown per serving:

  • 28g protein
  • 6.2g fat
  • 44g carbohydrates
  • 1.6g sugar
