Way to go...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pulsin' Unflavoured Whey Protein Powder, 1kg (Isolate) (Personal Care)
This whey protein powder is 90% protein and only 2% carbohydrate and 1% fat.
It does not contain aspartame, what causes headaches in some people, or any other sweeteners.
It is made using cross-flow ultrafiltration and micro filtration.
Pulsin says that they only use quality hormone free British milk, from grass fed cows.
Good for the cows and good for anyone who uses this product. Indeed, this whey protein powder is good stuff.
The product has a neutral milky taste on its own but I add pomegranate juice (100% pure with no added sugar or water) and fruits,
what makes for great tasting and adds some fiber to the smoothie.
One of the best things about this product is that it has nothing added to it: No nasty sweeteners, no flavours, no sugar,
etc. It is a very neutral product that gives you the choice of drinking it as it is or with juices, fruits, porridge etc.
It is , I would say, a personalised smoothie powder, what makes this whey protein powder stand out from the crowd of whey powders because
most of them add vitamins and other things that you might not need or want.
The blending will add foam to the drink but this is only natural as the product is practically fat free whey, what makes for more foam
and, actually, shows the good quality of this protein powder. I found out that if I add a bit of hemp protein to the whey protein then the smoothie will have much less foam.
I put about 100 grams of powder in my smoothie and drink half of it straight away but the second half I will only drink hours later, as I don't think that
my body will be able to properly absorb more than 45 grams of protein at once.
It is certainly an excellent source of protein if you lift weights, like me. Nevertheless, you don't need to be working out in order to benefit from this protein powder.
You can also use it if you live a fast life and need a good smoothie to get going, if you are on a diet etc.
PS. The only thing I don't like about this product is that it doesn't have a more complete list of nutritional contents, like
its amount of calcium, phosphorus etc.
Update to this review on 13 july 2016.
This product is not certified organic and, because of that, Pulsin released a while ago its "Organic Whey Protein".
I called them at the time and was told that the original product does not tick all the boxes required for a product to be certified as "organic" hence the release of the new, at the time, "Pulsin Organic Whey protein". But it seems to me that this is more of a legal than nutritional matter and what really matters is that this non organic product is made using hormone free cow milk and is non GM.
But there is a difference, between the organic product and this one, that might be crucial to people doing, for example, a diet free of cereals and beans: This product contains soya whilst the organic one doesn't.
I think the organic product is a better product than this one because it is concentrate whilst this one is isolate. The concentrate is a more complete product and has more fat (4 grams per 100 grams) than the isolate whey protein (which has practically no fat: 0.3 grams per 100 grams) .
I changed, some time ago, from this product to the organic one. I prefer the organic whey as its fat and carbohydrate content make for a more complete product and, even considering the high standards of Pulsin's isolate whey protein, it might be that the concentrate organic whey protein preserves more of whey's health benefits. But the organic powder is considerably more expensive if you take it on a regular basis so, if you want to reduce costs, you can try the non organic concentrate whey protein from Pulsin.
