What is whey protein powder?

Whey protein powder is a popular supplement. You may know of a friend who uses it, or perhaps you've used it yourself! Many use it day-to-day for different reasons. Some people use whey protein powder to increase their daily intake of protein, whereas others use it before or after a workout. 

Browse the supermarket or chemist, and you might come across different types of protein powders, such as whey or vegan. 

Protein powder comes from eggs, whey, rice, soy or a combination of the four. Vegan protein powders, on the other hand, come from plant-based sources and are commonly used by those who favour this option, are on plant-based diets, or perhaps have an intolerance to dairy. 

Protein powder is made into a powder form, so it can easily be used in a protein shake, smoothie, or added to a recipe.  

You can find whey protein powder in different flavours, such as vanilla, chocolate, coffee, or berry. Now that we’ve spoken a bit about what is whey protein powder, let’s talk about why we need protein! 

We need protein; it's an essential macronutrient that plays a vital role in the daily functioning of our bodies! A protein-rich diet may help in recovery, stabilising blood sugar levels, and supporting general health and wellbeing.  

For some people, it can be hard to consume the right amount of protein for their health and bodies. That's where whey protein powder comes in handy. It offers a convenient and simple way to increase protein intake. 

Our whey protein powders are available in vanillachoc peanut butterbananachocolatecoffeesalted caramelberry, and Ashy Bines' triple choc fudge

Let's talk a little about our vanilla flavoured whey protein powder.
