First, let’s take a look at the supplement label.
Protein Type and Content
Looking at the ingredients list, we can see that this product is a pure whey concentrate, which as we know, is the cheapest form of whey. That explains its price point! Knowing what we know about whey concentrate and isolates, this would mean that this product would not be the best choice if you know that you react badly to lactose or have known digestion issues.
There is also a footnote (not pictured), stating: “100% of the protein in this product comes from whey”. This is a great sign to us and it indicates that the company wishes to state clearly that 100% of the measured protein content comes from whey concentrate and NOT from added amino acids (as per our protein spiking page). The product also contains 6.3g of BCAAs and 1.6g of glutamine per serving, which makes it an added bonus since it had been stated that all of the protein content was entirely from whey.
Other Nutritional Information
However, we see that while this product is great for protein, it does come with added calories and cholesterol. Its cholesterol content of 80mg is the highest amongst our analyzed products at 27% of your daily recommended intake. While sugar and fat content are reasonable at 2g each, the carbohydrate content is fairly high at 7g, with none of that being dietary fiber, which means the added carbs go straight to the calories. At 150 calories per serving, it has the second highest caloric content among the reviewed products.
Taste and Mixability
From a flavor and mixability perspective, this product, in our opinion, tastes great! After going through numerous reviews online, we have found that the general consensus is also that the taste of this product, particularly the chocolate favor, is decent. However, one issue we definitely have with this protein is mixability. If you mix your protein using a manual shaker, you might find clumps of protein stuck at the bottom unless you are ‘well-practiced’ in your shaking motions!
Final Verdict: Best cheap whey protein but may not be suitable for those on low-calorie or low-carb diets. Those who are sensitive to lactose may also consider other products as this is a 100% whey concentrate. Flavor is decent, but mixability is an issue so a blender is recommended.
