The first thing you’ll probably notice while browsing the Bulk Powders website is the value for money available in their range of sports supplements.

The key reason why their prices are so low in comparison to their competitors is because they sell directly to consumers, and manufacture their products themselves.

The UK-based company was founded back in 2005 but underwent a huge transformation to cater for the growing online demand for products in 2013.

We’re always on the lookout for ways to perform better and achieve our health goals in a cost-effective way without compromising on quality.

Here, we’re going to try out Bulk Powders Pure Whey Protein to see if it’s a supplement you should consider buying to help you reach your fitness goals.

The basics

The first thing to strike me about this particular protein powder is the price. The unflavoured 500g pouch is sold for £8.99, which pretty much hits all of its competitors out of the water.

Alternatively, you can opt for the 2.5kg bag, which provides 83 servings at a cost of around 35p per go.

Pure Whey Protein is available in 23 flavours, ranging from the classic Vanilla, Chocolate or Strawberry, to the not-so-common and slightly whacky Birthday Cake, Lemon Meringue, and Toffee Popcorn.

The unflavoured powder packs 24.2g of protein into each 30g serving, while the flavoured varieties offer 22.9g of protein. Playing it safe, I went for the Vanilla flavour.

The taste

We all know that the protein content and nutritional factors are very important, but they become pretty irrelevant if actually drinking the stuff after the gym every day is a horrible experience.

Thankfully, Pure Whey Protein tastes great. It is no wonder that the product is extremely popular – drinking it after an intense gym session is a genuine pleasure.

I mixed it with both semi-skimmed milk and water, and it was quick to dissolve on both occasions, leaving no lumpy bits as some of the products we have tried in the past have. Considering the low price, this really is a great-tasting protein powder.

If you’re looking for the highest possible protein content (24.2g) and lower carbs, choose the Unflavoured version. Be warned, however, it does not taste great.

The ingredients

The first thing I assumed when I saw the ‘bargain basement’ price-tag of Pure Whey Protein was that the ingredients and manufacturing process would be below-par.

But I was pleasantly surprised after doing a bit more digging about this particular product.

The Bulk Powders website explains that the whey protein powder used in the product is sourced directly from a European dairy, using grass-fed cow’s milk, and that it contains 82 per cent whey protein.

Pure Whey Protein is also rich in branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which are the vital ‘muscle building blocks’ needed to help you recover from a tough game or gruelling gym workout.

It is also low in carbohydrates, fat, lactose and cholesterol, making it a healthy option.

What other people are saying about it

As always, I scoured the internet for as many genuine reviews of Pure Whey Protein I could find.

The product generally has very positive feedback, with taste and value for money the main themes of most of the reviews. The fact that it mixes well was also mentioned numerous times.

One person found that the taste was slightly too sweet for them and there were a couple of delivery complaints, but other than that, the reviews were good overall.

Verified purchaser Smee wrote on Amazon: “Very pleased with it – strong vanilla flavouring, not bland in the slightest as I was expecting and kinda sweet but without lots of sugar. Impressed and will buy again.”

And Peadar wrote in their review: “I have tried a number of flavours and have found them all to be as good or better than any other brand I’ve tasted over the years. Nice consistency whether mixed with milk or water. No complaints at all.”
