Protein Powder

Protein is an important macronutrient, needed for the healthy functioning of all organs in the human body. It is necessary for building tissues and muscle, and critical for growth, repair and healing of wounds. Protein powder can be an easy way to increase your intake of protein, making a delicious breakfast or a snack mid-afternoon.

Protein is a vital nutrient that the body uses to repair, as well as maintain cells and tissue.

Protein Powder

High protein foods may help you feel energised and satiated longer - saving you from the in-between meal snacking and 3pm energy blues. Protein is essential for growth and repair, and requirements can be higher for certain groups of people, including those doing intense sports and weight or cardio training, people recovering from illness, or those recovering from injuries.

When ingested, protein is broken down into its component amino acids, which are then rearranged by the body into other configurations to form the building blocks of our body. This makes protein critical for good health, and conversely implicates protein deficiencies in many health problems and makes recovery and healthy body function difficult if intake is inadequate.

Protein can be lacking in many people’s diets, particularly those leading busy lives who reach for quick and easy high-carb foods in a hurry, or those on vegetarian or vegan diets.

 

Protein Powder Benefits

Protein powders are an easy way to increase your protein intake, making a delicious snack on their own or the basis of a healthy breakfast or lunch smoothie.

 

Choosing the Best Protein Powder

Whether doing cardio training, building muscle, convalescing, trying to gain or maintain weight or supplementing a vegan diet, you can choose from our great variety of protein powders:

  • whey protein powder - a perfect source of high potency protein that is easily broken down and quickly absorbed
  • rice protein powder - healthy and affordable alternative with a neutral taste, ideal for those wanting to avoid whey or soy, suitable for vegans
  • pea protein powder - digests easily and contains all the essential amino acids for building a strong, healthy body, suitable for vegans
  • soy protein powder - great, cost-effective source of protein, suitable for vegans

Our protein powders come in tasty flavours such as creamy vanilla, coffee or cacao and coconut. Sprouted products increase bioavailability and ease of digestion, and some are blended with vitamins and superfoods for extra nutrition.

For dietary support for most people, a plain protein powder is usually adequate, but for those doing intense sports training, you may wish to also consider protein bars or balls, enhanced with other nutrients such as l-carnitine or green tea extracts. There is something for every taste and every dietary need.

  • Few points

    star

    I've been using this product for the past couple of weeks and I wish I could return it ad get my money back.
    1. It arrived with no measuring cup inside which normally is included.
    2. It doesn't dissolve in milk or water so I drink this lumpy water, I tell you it is not an easy swallow.
    3. It doesn't taste like vanilla at all, more like cheap imitation.
    4. The label is not filled so I don't even know how much protein per serve I take, but I saw it now here so that's ok I guess.

    Overall I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with taste buds and if you want to use it - get a blender! I guess the price reflects the product, I really had better protein shake in the past and even thou was triple this price it was worth it.

  • I'm a fan

    star

    I use this product every day, and seem to have settled on it as my favourite protein powder so far. Love the vanilla flavour for its versatility (though the berry is pretty nice, too) - I use it in a few different ways, though rarely drink it as a shake as I find it a bit sweet by itself. Nice in a fruity or oaty smoothie, though.

    Overnight oats - I like this about an hour before my morning workout: rolled oats, a scoop of protein powder, ground flax seeds and sunflower seeds, cinnamon, stirred up with water, and then some frozen mixed berries on top - I mix it up the night before and leave it in the fridge and it's perfect for me to start off with a cup of coffee. Pretty nice for making cookie-dough with some blitzed oats and cinnamon, too.

    Post-workout - I need some food pretty quickly after lugging weights around so that I don't start trying to eat my desk at work, and what I'm digging right now is this mixed up to a milky-creamy consistency, some cornflakes for sweet malty crunch, ground almonds, and a banana. I'll sometimes have something like that last thing at night - it makes a pretty nice pudding mixed up with some peanut butter and berries. This maybe seems weird, but I've also used it smooshed up with a mashed banana and a small amount of water or soy milk to have on toast or a fruit muffin - yum.

  • Refreshing Calcium Boost

    star

    I choose this product to contribute to my calcium intake and because I do a lot of physical activity.
    It is great! It is very refreshing and seems to keep me hydrated - I can't really see my bones but hopefully the extra calcium is doing something good :-)
