The chocolate cookies Pure Whey Isolate 90 from Bulk Powders tastes amazing. Genuinely amazing. By far the best tasting protein shake we’ve ever tried.
A 30g serving provides 115 calories, 26.12g protein, 1.2g carbs and 0.67g fat. The high protein content to low carb and fat profiles makes this ideal for anyone wanting lean muscle growth. And to get 26g of protein out of a 30g serving is pretty good.
A 2.5kg pouch will cost you £41.99, which also makes it one of the cheapest on the market.
Other flavours include vanilla, banana, chocolate, chocolate orange, chocolate peanut, peaches and cream, strawberry, toffee popcorn and unflavoured.
It’s suitable for vegetarians, gluten free, halal and kosher.
Bulk Powders recommend taking this protein before breakfast or after a workout, where the brand suggests you can double the serving size, if it’s been an intense one.
Protein coffee is a dream
We also tried the Bulk Powders Complete Protein Coffee White. This took a lot of stirring to get it to mix, but we got there in the end.
I actually hate milky coffee. I didn’t actually notice there was a milky version when I was talking to the Bulk Powders team about what to send over; but had I, I would have requested the black option. Definitely regret that move.
It tasted very much like a pretty standard coffee with milk in it. I was assured by white coffee drinkers that it tasted fine.
Each (30g) serving provides 105 calories, 22g protein, 1.42g carbs and 1.5g fat. Works quite well as your morning coffee, or as a pre-workout booster. Wouldn’t recommend drinking it at night though, for obvious reasons.
Being able to get 22g of protein out of your coffee is pretty wonderful.
The ingredients in the white version are: hydrolysed whey protein isolate, freeze-dried instant coffee, skimmed milk powder, medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and sweetener (sucralose).
MCTs are composed of a glycerol backbone and three fatty acids. MTCs can aid calorie burning in the body, according to this paper in the International Journal of Obsesity and this one in Science Direct.
1kg of the protein coffee costs £27.49.
