Product information

We need to start by saying, with 100% honesty, what whey protein is. Whey protein is not essential to the diet, it’s not even essential for people that exercise. As much as supplement companies tell you whey protein is essential post workout, or before a workout, or at any time of the day, all whey protein is great for is adding protein into your diet in a convenient, flexible and cost effective way. After all, you can get protein from many food sources, such as chicken, eggs, beef and fish, just to name a few.

So, if whey protein is not essential, why would you buy it? Whey protein is that protein filler, it’s for those moments when you are short on time and need a quick breakfast smoothie, or don’t have time to eat after the gym and you want to grab a shake with a banana to tide you over, or you love adding protein to cooking like pancakes to boost your protein intake, or you just like to use it as a snack when you’re on the move and don’t have to think about food. Whey protein is also very cost effective as a protein source, at around £1 per serving, it’s cheaper than most protein sources you might buy like chicken, beef or fish. Why boost your protein intake at all? Having a daily protein intake of 1.2-2g per kg of bodyweight is beneficial for satiety, recovery, body composition, health and weight loss. This is why many active people or individuals on a diet of some form often use whey protein to boost their protein intake, in a cost effective and convenient way.

The next question you might ask is, what whey protein should you choose to buy? In our opinion it’s best to buy a whey protein that is both versatile in the kitchen when you are using it for cooking, yet is also thick and creamy when you want it as a shake, all while being cost effective and tasting awesome.

This is why we use whey protein concentrate, as it ticks all these boxes. Many companies will tell you that whey isolate is better as it is absorbed quicker, and thus makes you recover faster, but the speed of absorption has no real affect (in the grand scheme of absorption rates) on your recovery from exercise, and as a result it’s not worth sacrificing texture and enjoyment for a thinner whey protein shake (whey isolate mixes into a thinner more watery shake). Whey protein isolate is often more expensive than whey concentrate for this reason, making whey concentrate even more beneficial, to the wallet this time.

So, why choose Awesome Whey Protein?

We use the highest quality whey protein we can possibly source (hence it’s not the cheapest you can buy). We use whey concentrate so it’s versatile for all the ways in which you want to use it, and it tastes AWESOME, and for us, that is the most important thing. Life’s too short for bad tasting whey protein, try Awesome Whey Protein, we promise you won’t regret it.

Ingredients

Research behind the ingredients

When we reference the research we reference Examine.com, the go to source of understandable scientific research on nutrition, supplementation and health, allowing you to be informed about the ingredients we use and the research behind them.

Chocolate Whey Ingredients

Whey protein concentrate 88% (contains milk), cocoa powder 7%, flavouring (dextrose, sodium chloride), thickeners (xanthan gum, cellulose gum), acidity regulator (monopotassium phosphate), sweetener
(sucralose, acesulfam-k), anti-caking agent (silicon dioxide) and emulsifier (soy lecithin).

Vanilla Whey Ingredients

Whey protein concentrate 95% (contains milk), thickeners (guar gum, xanthan gum, cellulose gum), emulsifier (soy lecithin), flavouring (dextrose, sodium chloride) and sweetener (sucralose).

Strawberry Whey Ingredients

Whey protein concentrate 95% (contains milk), thickeners (guar gum, xanthan gum, cellulose gum), emulsifier (soy lecithin) colouring (beetroot red), flavouring (dextrose, sodium chloride) and sweetener (sucralose).

Banana Whey Ingredients

Whey protein concentrate 95% (contains milk), thickeners (guar gum, xanthan gum, cellulose gum), emulsifier (soy lecithin) colouring (beta-carotene), flavouring (dextrose, sodium chloride)
and sweetener (sucralose).

Whey Protein Concentrate

We use whey protein concentrate as it is the least processed form of whey protein, adds to the taste by allowing a creamier texture, and has research to show it is beneficial at supporting the immune system compared to other whey proteins. Read the research on Whey Protein at Examine.com

FAQs

Am I safe to consume this multiple times a day?

Yes, whey protein can be taken multiple times per day. We recommend you stick to whole, unprocessed foods as much as possible and so advise you do not rely on Awesome Whey Protein for the majority of your protein intake, but this approach is not directly harmful and may allow for greater flexibility and convenience, and of course it can be cost effective

Am I able to use this while pregnant?

There is no reason to avoid using Awesome Whey Protein to make up some of your protein intake during pregnancy unless your GP or health care professional has said otherwise.

Do you do a mass gain version?

We don’t provide a mass gainer shake and never will. Mass gainers typically cost a lot even though they only consist of whey protein and a large amount of carbohydrate (which is very cheap). This makes them popular with supplement companies as they allow for a large profit margin. As we want to promote honesty and integrity, this goes against our values. With that said we absolutely believe that high calorie shakes are a brilliant tool for weight gain phases and so don’t wish to discourage their use entirely – only the premade ones! Using Awesome Whey Protein to make high calorie smoothies with milk, nut butter, oats, fruit and even ice cream can achieve the same goal with a lot more personalisation and, depending on the ingredients, nutritional value. So if you want a weight gainer shake, mix Awesome Whey Protein with milk, make a smoothie, or eat it with some nuts or other high calorie food.

Is the sweetener sucralose safe?

Currently the full body of evidence for the safety of sucralose indicates that it is perfectly safe to consume. Customers regularly ask why not use stevia? This is because stevia, in our opinion, tastes awful, and we want our products to taste awesome. So we use sucralose over stevia. Some individuals with IBS can get irritation from some sweeteners, so be mindful if this is you. Click the following link to read the most up to date research on sucralose.

Does whey protein have a laxative effect?

Whey protein does not have a laxative effect. If you suffer from G.I distress after consuming this product we recommend speaking to your GP as this could be a sign of lactose intolerance. Otherwise there should be no reason for this effect.

Can this help me lose fat?

This product is high in protein (so it helps promote satiety) and is low calorie. No supplement can cause weight loss on its own, but this product can certainly help you achieve the calorie deficit necessary to reach that goal.

Can I cook with it?

Awesome Whey Protein is perfectly safe for cooking. Neither the protein content or the flavour will be negatively affected.

Do I have to drink it straight after mixing?

Awesome whey protein can be mixed up and then consumed within a few days provided it’s kept in the fridge and re-shaken before consumption. Whey protein is a milk-based product, and so you’ll be VERY aware if it’s gone off! We recommend consumption within 48 hours assuming refrigeration, but ideally, for freshness, enjoy soon after mixing.

Do I use milk or water? How much?

Your use of milk, milk substitute, or water, and the precise amount, is individual. We recommend you stick to 200-400ml of liquid per serving, and pay attention to the additional calories if you opt for something other than water. Milk or a milk substitute will always provide a better richer flavour, whereas water will reduce the calories – the decision is yours! As a final note - when developing our flavours we did it with water, so does it taste awesome with water….yes!

Can I have this if I’m lactose intolerant?

The lactose content of whey protein is very, very low. With less than 3g per serving, Awesome Whey Protein will be tolerated well by most even with lactose intolerance. If you have very sensitive lactose intolerance, however, we recommend you opt for Awesome Vegan Protein instead and avoid the chance of an issue.

Is Awesome Whey Protein vegan friendly?

No, but it is gluten free.
