CHOOSING THE RIGHT PROTEIN POWDER?
Protein is and essential macro for any goal! Losing weight, building muscle and fuelling your performance is proteins job but sometimes we can not get enough in by eating whole foods!
This is why protein powders are the first step in supplement success!
But which protein is right for you? For some it may just be flavour choices or even the carbohydrate and fat content. Nice and simple right? Well not so much!
Certain considerations need to be taken when choosing the right protein powder like how your body reacts to dairy (which whey protein contains) there is also the vegan and vegetarians that may not like to consume an animal-based protein powder!
Let’s look at some of POWER SUPPS most popular choices from all of the different varieties of protein powders we have to offer!
Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use, but rate among the best proteins that money can buy. That’s why they’re the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey™ label. By using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), they are able to pack 24 grams of protein into every serving to support your muscle building needs after training. Optimum Nutritions attention to detail also extends to mix ability. This superior quality powder has been instantized to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and spoon. There’s no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.
GHOST® WHEY protein combines a premium 100% whey protein blend with natural digestive enzymes and amazing, featured flavours.
Most brands (and people, in our opinion) get all crazy and tend to overthink their protein. GHOST wanted to keep their WHEY PROTEIN as simple as possible, rocking a premium, fully disclosed, 100% whey protein blend, a few natural digestives enzymes that have worked best for us, and out of this world flavours.
Whey Protein 25G Every scoop of GHOST® Whey contains 25G (or more) of the purest, fully disclosed whey protein on the market. Flip the tub around and you will find a breakdown of exactly how many grams of whey protein isolate, concentrate and hydrolysate are in every scoop.
Soy Free While most brands use soy lecithinated whey protein, GHOST opted to use only sunflower lecithinated whey protein in GHOST® Whey. Why? For starters, Soy is one of the common allergens on the market today. Additionally, soy contains phytoestrogens that mimic the body’s natural estrogen hormones, which isn’t great for men OR women, we’ll pass.
Gluten Free GHOST® Whey contains ZERO gluten. Enough said.
35g of high quality whey protein per 40g serve, it’s the most delicious “whey” to boost protein nutrition and re-charge your system every day
Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) – highest protein (94% by dry weight basis), lowest fat and less than 1% carbohydrates and sugars (lactose). WPI is naturally high in bioactive peptides for muscle tissue synthesis and immunoglobulin proteins for immune system support. This nutrient packed protein is a rich source of all the essential amino acids, and contains the highest concentration (24-25%) of Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s), especially leucine, of any protein source. BCAA’s help facilitate muscle recovery after hard training or sport.
No Fillers or Stabilisers – nothing diluting this pure protein, just high quality protein and amino acids available for your body to digest at the fastest possible rate. Why pay for whey protein isolate and then slow its quick absorption with vegetable gums, thickeners and fillers?
Easily Digested – highest quality whey protein isolate, fastest digesting hydrolysed whey protein isolate (whey peptides) and free form amino acids for rapid and efficient assimilation. NO vegetable gums or soy proteins, so it won’t leave you feeling bloated.
100% Great Taste – a range of delicious flavours that will leave you wanting more.
Ultra Low Fat – 99% fat free for guilt free supplementation.

FIRST THINGS FIRST… IT TASTES AMAZING! Now we have that sorted Power Plant Protein by Prana ON separates itself from all other plant based protein powders with its clever blend of ingredients. Prana have used a blend of raw, organic, non-GMO free golden pea protein; organic sprouted & fermented brown rice protein and the key ingredient of organic Sacha Inchi protein which helps to bind the other proteins together, removing that gritty and gluggy texture plant proteins have become known for.

PEANUT BUTTER VEGAN PROTEIN+ BY MACRO MIKE

If you love peanut butter and want to increase your protein intake naturally, this ones for you!!
The issue with most vegan protein blends is they use pea and rice protein as the main ingredients which can create a grainy texture. We use Peanut protein, which is packed full of fibre, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and has a smooth and creamy texture. We blend our peanut protein with a small amount of pea and rice protein, to bring you a completely out of this world taste with a creamy texture.
Can’t decide which flavour? Our Chocolate Peanut Butter is for all the chocaholic fans out there. Our Cheezecake tastes dreamy like a Biscuity Peanut Butter Cheezecake. Our Chocolate Caramel is like drinking a caramel slice with peanut butter on top. Or if you want to play it safe our Original is for you. They are all AMAAAAZING!! Please note, as we use peanut protein our protein+ will naturally taste like peanut butter.
