This product has changed. Here's what's new, it's:

    • A completely new beef protein that's made in New Zealand from grass fed New Zealand cows. It is a very good product and will be the envy of many international consumers.
    • Much easier to mix, less frothy, and tastes better. In fact, we think this chocolate beef tastes even better than whey!
    • More expensive BUT the previous beef protein that mixed easily (from Europe) was heading this way too.
    • In regards to flavours, we have been unable to make a caramel flavour with the NZ beef. We will work on more flavours but they may be chocolate based. Watch this space.

Please note, we are aware the price is higher than before. We can still get the previous hydrolysed beef from Europe which was cheaper. If enough people request it then we'll stock it as "value beef" - please drop us a line and let us know your thoughts.

Beef Protein Powder NZ

NZ Protein's beef protein powder is a complete muscle building protein that's great tasting.

Beef protein mixes and digests easily and has a much higher protein level than other sources; Where whey, egg white, and pea typically have around 80% protein, and whey isolate has a little over 90% protein, beef protein powder has 96% protein (unflavoured). That makes this product more economical and as a bonus there's virtually no fat or carbohydrates!

Beef protein is naturally hypoallergenic meaning it's free of milk, egg, soy, lactose, gluten, sugars, and other things* that can cause gut irritations. Eliminate the gastro side effects without comprising results!

A number of people have been turning away from the traditional milk based protein powders in favour of pea and egg protein powders but we feel that this product is a much more satisfying alternative - the Double Chocolate flavour tastes great!

High in protein and collagen. Virtually no fat or carbs. Great dairy free option.

Beef Protein Isolate

This product is a protein isolate and has a number of benefits:

      • Hypoallergenic and good alternative to milk (whey), egg white and pea based protein sources
      • 96% protein (unflavoured) with virtually no fat or carbohydrates
      • Complete source of protein containing all essential amino acids needed for muscle repair and development
      • Amino acid profile represents beef and resembles human muscle tissue
      • Mixes easily and has a neutral flavour
      • Easily digested with a medium to fast digestion speed
      • High in naturally occurring collagen which has a raft of benefits
      • Promotes growth and recovery of lean muscle
      • Made in New Zealand from grass fed cows.

Beef Protein Per 100g

Raw beef contains 20-25g protein per 100g. When cooked the water content lessens so the protein level increases to around 28-36g per 100g.

By comparison beef protein isolate powder has 96% protein (unflavoured) because virtually all of the moisture, fat and carbohydrates are eliminated. This includes the saturated fat and cholesterol often associated with the negative effects of consuming beef.

The amino acid profile of beef protein powder is still of beef and resembles the amino acid profile found in human muscle tissue. This means that beef protein isolate is well suited for muscle recovery and development.

This product doesn't need cooking or preparation either so it's incredibly convenient and economical.

Digestibility

Protein digestibility is a measure of the proportion of protein that is absorbed by the body. Beef protein scores 94%.

Biological value is a measure of the proportion of absorbed protein that's retained for growth and maintenance. Beef scores 80.

The Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) is a rating that determines the bioavailibility of a protein. The maximum score is 1.0. Beef scores 0.92 on this scale.

Beef Protein vs Whey

A number of people have been turning away from the traditional milk based protein powders (such as whey) in favour of alternatives.

One serving of our beef contains 120 calories and ~30 grams of protein (unflavoured). One serving of our whey concentrate contains 130 calories and ~25 grams of protein, so both have similar calories and beef has more protein.

Beef is lower in L-leucine than whey. Leucine is one of three branched chain amino acids and is primarily involved in muscle protein synthesis for muscle growth and recovery. It also contributes to the regulation of blood-sugar levels, growth hormone production and wound healing.

The leucine content of beef is ~3.7g per 100g, and in whey ~9g per 100g, so whey may be better for muscle development. Though this could be easily overcome by having a Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) supplement with the beef isolate.

Though whey has a better amino acid profile for muscle development, the amino profile of beef resembles human muscle tissue. Both are complete proteins containing all essential amino acids. Whey is fast digesting and beef protein isolate digests at a medium to fast speed. Both are excellent tasting and beef makes a good alternative to whey for those who want a great tasting shake.

Contains

Hypoallergenic so unlikely to cause stomach upsets.

Milk and lactose which can affect those with stomach sensitivities and cause some people to experience bloating or other upsets.

Great Tasting

starstarstarstarstar

We think beef protein tastes as good as our NZ whey. It has a smooth texture and is more pleasant than pea and egg white.

starstarstarstarstar

Our whey is clean tasting and has a natural creamy texture. We don't add any thickeners to modify the texture.

Mixes Easily

Not instantised but mixes easily in water, milk, or your favourite liquid without lumps. It can be mixed in a handshaker or with a spoon.

It's better with slightly less water than you'd mix whey with.

Instantised (spray dried with lecithin to improve mixability).

Mixes easily in water, milk, or your favourite liquid without lumps. It can be mixed in a handshaker or with a spoon.

Use

Depending on your nutritional requirements take 1-3 servings daily at breakfast, between meals, post workout, or before bed.

Beef Protein vs Collagen

There are some myths found online that beef protein is just collagen. Though this product is high in naturally occurring collagen, it is not collagen.

      • Collagen does not have a complete amino acid profile whereas beef does.
      • Collagen is made primarily of three amino acids - prolinehydroxyproline and glycine. In collagen the glycine and proline are 10-20 times more concentrated than in other proteins. Beef protein has reasonable levels of these but they're at nowhere near the levels of the collagen protein.
      • As such collagen has a unique structure that can't be found anywhere else.

Our collagen is also from cows but is separate product, extracted via a different process and sold separately.

How to Use

Depending on your nutritional requirements take 1-3 servings daily at breakfast, between meals, post workout, or before bed.

Beef protein is not instantised but it still mixes easily in water, milk, or your favourite liquid without lumps. It can be mixed in a handshaker or with a spoon. (Remember that it's always best practice to add the liquid before the powder).

We recommend mixing it with less water/milk than you'd traditionally mix whey with as this will give it a creamier texture - just add a serve to ~200ml of water or milk in a shaker.

Beef Protein Side Effects 

Beef allergies are uncommon. Those with allergies to beef should avoid this product.

This product contains virtually no saturated fat or cholesterol. It is not a 'processed meat' product and it is not extracted or cooked with high heat.

Our Verdict

We think beef protein powder makes the best alternative to whey if it's taste you're after. Every protein powder has unique benefits - beef protein tastes good and has a smooth texture so is easier to drink than pea and egg white protein.

Beef protein contains all essential amino acids and is a complete protein. Though the BCAA level is lower, the essential amino acids in beef isolate resemble human muscle tissue and the collagen levels are higher. BCAA levels can easily be increased by supplementing with a small amount of BCAA powder per serving.

Loving the new beef. Better than the previous one. A lot creamier and taste like chocolate milk shake.

The consistency of the protein powder has changed. Unsure if I like it as it creates quite a bit of 'dust' when using. appears to taste the same

I quite liked the previous beef protein as an alternative to whey, but the recipe has been changed to a bitter dark chocolate and I'm really not a fan. I'm quite aware this is personal preference as the sales rep pointed out that they all like it...

We dont eat any foods with colours, flavour, preservatives, numbers or inflammatory foods such as gluten, soy, corn/maize. This product ticks all the boxes with a clean label, tastes good and has lots of protein. It does cake to the sides of the blender a little which is why I give it 4 stars instead of 5.
Review by: Mike on Mon, Apr 1, 2024 10:11 AM
I would add a 5th star if sucralose was swapped out with monk fruit or xylitol. I would pay more for a better quality sweetener. In spite of that, I love this protein powder and definitely feel the benefits in my energy levels. I take it after my daily workout and it seems that my nails are stronger since taking it.
I will be buying the unflavored version until such time as chocolate comes without sucralose but everything else is great. NZPROTEIN REPLY: if we used monk fruit, for example, then you'd be leaving a review saying it tasted awful

Review by: John on Tue, Jan 30, 2024 1:48 PM
Was a bit hesitant at first being 'beef' protein but have found this a quick and easy way to add extra protein to my morning coffees. Does take a bit to mix it into a liquid but with a whizz stick or handheld whisk, no problem. While not completely flavorless, I enjoy the slightly nutty/malty flavour it adds. Will be purchasing more in the future.

Beef protein is fantastic, love the salted caramel, easy to digest
Review by: Martin on Sun, Jan 14, 2024 2:05 PM
Tastes yummy. I got unflavored and mix it with chocolate of my choice so I can control the sweetness then I use a portable blender. It doesn’t dissolve well if I don’t use a blender.
Review by: Anonymous on Fri, Jan 5, 2024 2:23 PM
Great bang for your buck! Nearly pure protein gram for gram. Not flavoured and can be added into anything. I add mine into smoothies, sauces, oatmeal, curry etc. Very fine powder, not gritty, but cakes a little, so be sure to whisk or blend well.

Review by: Dan on Sun, Nov 5, 2023 11:43 AM
Salted caramel flavour. Surprisingly good! I was expecting it to be excessively sweet, just like any other brand with flavour that I've tried. But no! It's just right amount of sweetness. While it's still sucralose, at least it tastes good. Mixes well. Will buy again.

NZ Protein's Unfavoured Beef Protein Powder is fantastic for smoothies. I've tried many allegedly 'unflavoured' protein powders before NZ Protein and there is a taste and it ruins the smoothie. Now I never need to waste my money on another brand again! It's approved by my nutritionist and much to my amazement doesn't upset my IBS at all.

I love the beef protein option and I can't have whey. I with they did more flavors. The salted caramel is best and mixes easy. The chocolate is good to but Ned a blender.
Review by: Anonymous on Tue, Oct 24, 2023 5:55 PM
Salted caramel flavour. I like this protein powder, my only wish is that it was sweetened with stevia/monkfruit because I find the sucralose taste unpleasant. I use this powder in protein cookies I make to stave off the sugar cravings.
1/2 cup ground pork rinds
1/2 cup salted caramel protein powder
3 tablespoons coconut flour
1/2 cup coconut oil
3 teaspoons stevia liquid
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg
Melt the coconut oil till almost fully runny, then beat in everything. Once well mixed leave in fridge for 10-15 to thicken up. I make the cookies just 1 tablespoon each. Cook for 15mins at 150c, switching the trays every 5mins (I use two trays because they spread). You can add 1/2 cup of chopped pecans to the recipe if you like. I actually store in the freezer because I like how chewy they are then.

Really nice tasting protein. I can’t have whey proteins and I hate the taste of plant based ones. I’m a breastfeeding mum, and this beef protein definitely helped increase and up the quality of my milk supply. I blend it into a smoothie with frozen berries, banana, LSA, oats, brewers yeast and oat milk. Delicious!
Review by: Sam on Fri, Aug 18, 2023 7:39 AM
OK, here it is. As a disolvable drinkable powder it sucks. I hated it. And then... the way it didn't merge into the milk meant there was this chewy choclaty goo floating around on top of the slightly choclaty milk. So spooning it out was nice chewy experience followed by some refreshing milk to help wash it down... weirdly this gooey failure of a smoothie became something... other.
The gooiest most chocolate flavoured 'cake' with a milk backstop. I did work out that having it with warm or somewhat hot milk meant the powder dissolved more into the milk, nearly normal. But normal becomes dull! This half gooey chocolate cake, half chocolate milk concoction is something you can't experience with any other product that I know of.
Yes, I'd deffo go back to the normal chocolate protein milk drink if the 'normal' powder becomes available, but I think I'd still want this frankenshake sometime in my week as an indulgence, and not a even a naughty indulgence, it's still a no sugar protein hit!
Hence the rating or 3, it's strange, different, not what I expected, not what I want at the gym, not even close to a protein 'shake', but the mouth feel and flavour of those chewy chocolate gobbets dripping with milk... excuse me I need a hit!
(note: after dropping the power into the milk in the glass, you have to roll it into the milk and once it's good and wet, bash it around in the glass to get rid of the dry bits, then leave it for at least 5 minutes. You can consume before then but the experience only improves with the extra wait.)
Review by: Greg on Tue, Aug 8, 2023 10:34 PM
I've been trying to find a dairy free protein for some time now and this one is the best tasting one so far. It's a pain to mix but I solved that with a cheap kmart stick blender. Would love more flavour options like the whey protien has as thats what drew me to this brand before I developed a dairy allergy. Gets incredibly thick if left to sit for any length of time, great for overnight oats maybe not as great if you want to make a shake in advance

I really like this. I wasn’t that keen on the sample but decided to buy it as I wanted to see if my digestion issues went away by not using a whey powder. I got the chocolate flavour and I’m really happy with the taste and how it mixes, I do have a vitamix though which makes mixing pretty thorough.

Super pleased with the product and have just ordered another one.
Would recommend for those looking for a whey alternative.
Review by: Pierce on Tue, Apr 18, 2023 8:49 PM
Smells meaty like beef and tastes like chocolate. Not enjoyable. The reusable seal was slightly opened when it delivered, not the outer packaging, just the reusable seal. So there was powder in the top bit where you rip it off when you first buy it. The powder was sticky, wonder if it was because of that seal and moisture got in?
Usually I get the pea protein from nz protein and never have any issues, so this is a good company. It's just either the beef protein will always taste/smell terrible to me or it might have been a result of the open seal. Not tryna hate this is just what happened. NZPROTEIN: it's hydrolysed beef and hydrolysed proteins can be sticky.
Review by: Tyler on Wed, Apr 12, 2023 12:24 PM
Love this beef protein! As someone who can't have whey or plant-based protein, this is my go-to. The flavour is great and easy to have on its own or in a smoothie.

The only thing I'd like to see change is to move away from sucralose as a sweetener and find a more natural ingredient if possible. NZPROTEIN REPLY: well that depends whether you still want it to taste good!

Product can only be mixed with an appliance otherwise it coagulates and becomes undrinkable. NZPROTEIN REPLY: we regret the trouble you're having. There is no other beef protein available at the moment but we are doing our best to get more.

Best protein powder for taste and dairy origins. Double choc was smooth and like a milkshake when mixed with milk
Review by: Tepaki on Mon, Oct 24, 2022 9:16 PM
Loving this beef protein powder! It’s our favourite flavour. Tried the caramel which was nice but this one is definitely the best. Doesn’t have that odd protein flavour like some of them do!

being on Whey protein powder for a while, I thought id have a change so tried the beef protein powder. LOVE it. Highly recomend
Review by: steph on Thu, Oct 13, 2022 1:30 PM
Found it to be a great source of protein when already meeting macros, and tastes really good at its values.
Review by: Keegan on Wed, Oct 12, 2022 1:11 PM
Tasty, mixes well. I love adding it to a basic peanut butter cookie recipe (Big Man's World protein cookies) to "beef" up the protein and give a little bit of chewiness. Great product at a great price.
Review by: Nicole on Fri, Oct 7, 2022 3:13 PM
Great tasting, easy to drink, I mix it with my morning coffee, and then add them between meals throughout the day. I'm lactose intolerant, and will not touch plant based protein powder, so this has been a life saver. Thank you!

I will be a repeat customer as this is the only protein powder that doesn't give me stomach issues, highly recommended if you have food allergies. Thanks!
Review by: Declan on Wed, Oct 5, 2022 3:02 PM
Not sure I like the taste as much as the whey chocolate that why it's a 3 for me. Nothing wrong with the product just comes down to taste preference.
Review by: Suey on Sat, Oct 1, 2022 6:43 AM
I have stomach issues and am lactose intolerant so coming across beef protein has been a life saver, I mix mine with coffee and it tastes delicious, I absolutely enjoy every shake I have.

If you are lactose intolerant or allergic to dairy, highly recommended as an alternate to whey.

Very happy with the taste and protein content.
Review by: JODiE on Wed, Sep 21, 2022 4:12 PM
I grabbed it in replace of whey isolate to try and was pleasantly surprised and impressed by the taste. I chose chocolate, it was so good, even just with water or with a smoothie. I had previously tried beef based protein many years ago which wasn't the best at all. But this was such a great product. Plus for nutrition profile it was second to the isolate so a great option if price is a factor.

Its really creamy, tastes like melted chocolate icecream. Great with banana and milo.
Review by: Odette on Wed, Sep 21, 2022 12:10 PM
I have bought the unflavoured version as a relatively cheap, clean intermediate-speed protein. It mixes fairly well and does not have any unpleasant smell or taste. I personally combine it with whey isolate or casein, depending on goals.

The packaging NZ Protein products come in was a pleasant surprise. Boxes, bags, etc. are the appropriate size for the contents. No extreme waste of plastic, unlike most supplements brands.

As a side note, the courier somehow lost my order. The problem was dealt with on my behalf by NZ Protein, who were constantly keeping in touch and updating me. I received a replacement very quickly. Top-notch customer service!

Super yummy, maybe slightly too sweet for me, but no after taste and nice and chocolaty. Better than pea protein if you are avoiding dairy but not a vegan!

Prime beef = Prime Shake. I will be ordering again - Chocolate flavour is undisputed.
Review by: Josh on Thu, Sep 1, 2022 3:50 PM
Purchased as it’s advertised as tasting great. I was worried about it tasting meaty. Reviews also say that it doesn’t have a meaty taste. It does, literally tastes like blended up dog bones even with the salted caramel or double choc flavours.
The whey option is much better, stick to that. NZPROTEIN REPLY: not everyone can have milk.
Review by: Elijah on Thu, Sep 1, 2022 12:07 PM
Easily best beef protein in NZ. Just wish It was cheaper though. Go with the chocolate flavour

I really like this protein. It doesn't taste beefy at all, it's nice and sweet and chocolatey, and I love the price. By happy accident I discovered that it makes an amazing high protein/low carb hot chocolate - just a serving of this with boiling water, topped up with a little bit of milk. Perfect winter evening treat.

Once again NZ Protein demonstrated that not only do they offer a great product but the service is exemplary and the delivery faster than any other on-line product I purchase. I can rely on them getting me my order within 1-2 days. It is consistently of a high quality and the double chocolate is amazing flavour. Brilliant as a straight protein drink, in smoothies, as a hot drink and makes up the best protein pancakes of any protein powder I have tried.
Great work NZ Protein, keep showing them how its done

Tastes great and way easier on stomach than pea protein. Definitely the best dairy free option on here
Review by: Tobi on Sun, Jun 19, 2022 12:24 AM
Great tasting well priced (When you buy bulk) protein that doesn't bloat me up and produce slightly lactose intolerant outcomes. You do need to shake it for a bit longer than whey, to avoid lumps but the small additional effort it is worth it. I'd always go for the Choc flavour.

Love this beef protein powder! Trying caramel this time which is pretty good but the chocolate is still my favourite.
Review by: Ashleigh on Thu, May 5, 2022 10:08 AM
Good protein, easily digested. Only negative comment is the taste is a little too bland and I rely on the additional ingredients (usually mix with porridge or chia seeds with a flavoured yoghurt) to make it more pleasant.

I gave the double choc a crack, expecting it to be average. I was pleasantly surprised. If all cows tasted as delectable as this rich and chocolatey delight we wouldn’t have vegans. I mean, how could you say no to a hunk of dark choc eye fillet? Don’t know where they grow these cocoa bovines but keep doing it because this powder is the biz.
Review by: Rowan on Sat, Apr 16, 2022 12:46 PM
The salted caramel flavour has a beefy flavour which is hard to get used to. The description mentions the powder is harder to mix but I want to emphasise JUST HOW HARD it is to mix. The mixture also froths and foams ALOT when used in a protein shaker. More than half the liquid turns into foam. I won't purchase this flavour again. NZPROTEIN REPLY: we apologise for the temporary change in beef protein. The regular beef protein is back soon in approx May 2022.

Great protein powder, very creamy and almost a coffee taste which I love. I add it to my normal smoothie and it adds a great consistency and flavor.

I used to love the beef protein from NZ protein but the lastest batch is sticky, clumpy and mixes poorly. I'd hold off on this stuff until they get a better supply. Emailed customer service but no reply 🤷🏼‍♀️ NZPROTEIN REPLY: we can't find an email, have emailed you :)
Review by: Anna on Mon, Mar 7, 2022 1:07 PM
I have had tried the chocolate flavor and tasted good and mixed really well.The salted caramel flavor on the other hand tasted good but does not mix well at all unfortunately! I tried stirring it into a glass of water but just went thick and gluggy like glue and wouldn't desolve into the water. I then tried a shaker in which it did desolve but throthed up so it wasn't in liquid form and unable to drink straight away, I had to wait an hour for the throth to go down back into a liquid to be able to drink it.

Let’s face it Sucralose is pretty bad for you, thus the chocolate flavour Beef protein is off the menu.
But with a bit of experimentation with, milk, water, chocolate powder and a smidge of sugar we have created a very drinkable and palatable brew. NZPROTEIN REPLY: we wrote a blog about sucralose here - https://www.nzprotein.co.nz/article/the-truth-about-sucralose called "The Truth About Sucralose". Worth a read!
Review by: Tim on Mon, Jan 24, 2022 6:48 PM
I was a big fan of your beef protein given my intolerance to dairy. Unfortunately it appears you no longer make the beef protein, so I ordered two kilos of your whey protein in the hope that it may not cause the issues I’ve experienced with other brands of whey protein. Unfortunately I am having reactions to your whey protein, so I’ll have to source another brand of beef protein, which is disappointing as your beef protein was exceptional. NZPROTEIN REPLY: we are so sorry that we are not able to ship this to AU any more :(

Hi this is my second bag of the beef protein
The first bag was great. This bag I have been having it for a week but the powder doesn’t dissolve. I’m using the protein shaker same steps as per the site and what I used the first time.

It froths a lot but doesn’t mix so it just feels like I’m drinking froth.

If there something else I can try it’s a lot of protein powder and don’t want to waste it

Thank u.

Happy new year

This is a great protein powder! Great price! Tastes ok but I would prefer a richer sweeter more chocolate flavour. The flavour is very mild but still ok. Awesome that it’s made in NZ!
Review by: Amanda on Tue, Jan 4, 2022 7:02 AM
Love Nzprotein. However either my product is contaminated or I have an allergic reaction to something in it. I don't have any food allergies by the way. I break out with itchy tiny pimples all over, even if there are less pimples my entire body starts to itch. Not sure what to do with the remaining powder as I won't want to give it away if it is contaminated.

This is my third purchase of the beef protein. I have gut issues which are aggravated by milk products, and I personally think that for me plant based proteins are worthless. The beef protein mixes well and doesn’t cause me any gut problems. I do a shake post workout and mix it with Greek yoghurt at night for a healthy desert. Would recommend this protein.
Review by: Pete on Tue, Dec 7, 2021 4:46 PM
Had been using other non flavoured high protein percentage powders before giving this a try. It has an almost chocolate taste which I tried to tell myself as I drunk it. Got more used to it as time went on but have gone back to the other format and realised I much prefer the other unflavoured whey options over this

Review by: Francis on Wed, Nov 3, 2021 10:51 AM
I'd enter 4.5/5 but I can't haha. Fantastic alternative to Whey for those who can't have dairy (myself included). Haven't had any issues with digestion, and the flavour is 100% better than pea / hemp protein, in my opinion.

I have only tried double chocolate which goes down a treat with a healthy dose of peanut butter. The flavour, though fantastic, isn't quite at the level of dairy powders, which is why I rate this a 4.5/5, but it isn't far off. Highly recommend.

Good shit. No soy. It dissolves much easier than whey protein. I have been mixing it with milk or water. In my opinion, it works way better than whey protein for my muscle building.

It tastes like beef stew / creamy beef stew if made with milk.

I will be getting this alot probably.

I didn’t like the after taste of this product and it mixes thinly in oats and smoothies. I prefer pea protein as it thickens when I mix it with my oats. I wouldn’t buy this product again.

I've been using the beef protein for 6 weeks now and am really happy with it.
Since changing over from whey i've noticed a reduction in body fat and vascularity/definition has increased markedly.
Using the beef protein is the only change i've made to my diet and i'm very pleased with the results i'm getting.
Choc is definitely my preferred flavour for shakes but i'm also really enjoying the unflavoured made with hot water, especially on these cold winter mornings.

This is excellent and I got the plain which doesn't taste of anything specific and I mix it in with my morning oats to get the required protein. It keeps me full for 4 hours. I am not lactose intolerant but the Whey protein gave me a headache and made me feel nauseous so if you are sensitive like me then give this a go.

Review by: Katrina on Thu, Jun 24, 2021 5:05 PM
I bought sample packs of each flavour and measured out half serves and tried each with water then mixed in a smoothie (banana, greek yoghurt, water and frozen cherries).
Unflavoured tastes like watery gravy lol I mean I like gravy but it's a little odd. When mixed with the smoothie it wasn't super noticable but still enough to be like huh?...
Salted caramel I found that because it's salty it tastes more artificially sweetened. In the smoothie the salt taste was super noticable, I'd prefer regular caramel or vanilla.
The double chocolate was the winner. The cocoa taste is strong and it's not too sweet. I'm not a big fan of cherry and chocolate together but it tasted fine.
All of them mixed well and with little effort into both water and a thick smoothie. I like the option of sample packet so I don't have to use glad bags or containers and risk them exploding in my bag.
Delivery was fast and had tracking updates. All in all happy as and keen to stock up on the double chocolate.

As this product was very recently purchased I have only made up 2 protein smoothies with it but I already know I love it. It smells just fine, very similar to my whey protein. It blends really well and tastes amazing. It is not like drinking beef at all - I have mine with full fat milk and blueberries. I got the double chocolate as I really enjoy this flavour. I have only positive comments with this protein powder and have already told several people about it. Looking forward to my next smoothie!

This was the first protein powder I’ve ever bought and honestly could never go back it’s so good and I could easily drink these all day.

Yummy tasting double chocolate, keep coming back, very speedy delivery too.

Tastes OK although the salted caramel flavour could be stronger. It blends well I have found that it is easily digested. I usually take vegan powder as I am lactose intolerant - this is a good alternative, although I am a little creeped out by the concept of a powder made from boiled up beef bits!
Review by: Dario on Tue, Feb 16, 2021 12:16 PM
The chocolate is good, the salted caramel was a little too "beefy" for me. Good protein if whey gives you issues. Not too sweet which I prefer too.
Review by: Mark on Mon, Feb 15, 2021 12:44 PM
Liked that it's not gritty like other protein powders

Best protein powder I have tried. Double choc is delish!

Tastes good with no beef aftertaste. Also not too sweet.
Review by: Anonymous on Thu, Nov 12, 2020 10:45 AM
I feel great using this beef protein. I chose this over plant protein because it's more bioavailable and I'd rather not have too much dairy with a whey protein. NZ Protein knocked it out of the park with this one!

Great taste, very smooth
Review by: Belinda on Fri, Sep 25, 2020 12:02 AM
It's unflavoured beef protein powder so yeah smells and tastes like beefy broth. I can handle it is smoothies with bananas and hot chocolate powder but cannot enjoy on it's own.

In saying that it's an excellent way to up my protein intake and is easy to digest. The packaging and scoop are good.
Review by: Anonymous on Thu, Sep 24, 2020 10:20 AM
Good stuff, much better protein source along with pea, no allergic reaction to worry about and like the high percentage of protein per serve. Not gritty and doesn't smell like beef.
Review by: leon on Wed, Sep 16, 2020 6:51 AM
Easily dissolves to a creamy mixture. Taste is mild and sweetness is low. Most importantly, it doesn’t appear to be associated with the bloating of whey, which is my reason number one for trying it.
Happy so far.
Review by: Anonymous on Tue, Sep 15, 2020 9:10 AM
Whey protein causes bloating issues for me. I tried egg protein but it's very fine grained and doesn't mix very well.
Beef protein is ideal. It tastes great, mixes easily and does exactly what it's supposed to do.
Love this stuff
Review by: Peter on Sat, Aug 29, 2020 7:06 AM
Love this protein, just wish it had a more natural sweetener like stevia/monkfruit etc NZPROTEIN REPLY: then it probably wouldn't taste very nice!
Review by: Hannah on Thu, Aug 20, 2020 4:20 PM
Chocolate flavour is great. It isn’t sweet which I really like as the American beef protein powders all seem to be really sweet. My kids both loved it too (2 & 5 yrs) best if you try not to smell it while mixing or drinking.
Review by: Danella on Fri, Aug 14, 2020 4:48 PM
I'm happy with this so far.
Milk/whey is troublesome for me, I probably have some milk allergies.
I wonder if it's NZ beef, grass-fed? It wasn't clear to me. NZPROTEIN REPLY: it's from Europe

Love this clean product!
Mixes easily into smoothies and thickens sauces.
Tastes neutral so can be mixed sweet or savory.
Perfect 👌🏻👌🏻
Review by: Robyn on Sun, Jul 5, 2020 8:05 AM
taste is nice you might feel that it is beef based but definetely was not that horrible as I have seen in couple of comments. No bloating and easy mixing with fluids.
Good cal/ protein ratio.
Review by: Csaba on Mon, Jun 29, 2020 9:39 AM
Love love this protein!
No taste of beef. Just yummy. Doesn't get clogged up and mixes well. Great alternative for me as I cant eat dairy or eggs.

Would love a vanilla flavour!

Taste good, dissolves in water easily and doesn't upset my stomach like whey or whey isolate. Ordering in easy and delivery is very quick. 100% satisfied.

Review by: Charles on Thu, Jun 11, 2020 7:53 AM
Ordered the double chocolate, love the taste! Very smooth. Especially with a milk substitute instead of water (oat or almond both work really well). Blends up very easily, no chalky aftertaste.
I find it gives no gas or bloating, which is great after a hard training session.
Will definitely be buying again!

Chocolate is great tasting, I do mix two scoops of beef protein with one scoop of pea protein in my after training smoothe. Price is also a bonus

I have noticed since taking Beef protein improvement in my energy levels. Im 62 years old train at the gym and walk daily. At least once a week do over 10 k walk up hills.
I have recommended the Beef Protein powder to a number of friends who have all noticed a difference with energy levels. My husband who cycles has also noticed more power on the hills.
Your sales should have improved from the Christchurch, South Island, Happy customer :)
Review by: Anonymous on Tue, Mar 10, 2020 10:05 AM
I bought the unflavoured because it Jason?s ingredient in the making. Nothing too complicated and no nasties. This is a mixed review:

PROS:
- does not make me gassy or bloated. This is a huge PRO as I workout in the morning and I work in a tight office environment. Only so many people you can blame that rogue fart on.
- mixes well; put the Liquid in first
- recovery rate is good
- added benefit of collagen
(I also buy unflavoured collagen from NZ protein- I would say best in the market in NZ at a good price)

CON:
Have you ever tasted a fart! Oooweee Some people say it is an acquired taste. Interesting. If I hold my nose though I can get this down. Mix this with anything but water unless you are one fo the people who have acquired a taste for farts.
I wouldn?t drink this in public -
side effects: involuntary gagging face.

Would I buy this again? Yeah I would unless they come out with the same qual prod without the smell. I think that is what gets to me. It?s so strong.
I have bought bone broth powder before though and it smells the same, so must be how it?s supposed to be.

Quite nice however it doesnt blend well as the powder sticks to the side of the cup. NZPROTEIN REPLY: always add wate first, then the powder.

It's good. You don't feel. Blown up after you had it just need some more flavors as everyone doesn't like the double chocolate. Otherwise it's great

Was on the hunt for beef isolate protein in NZ, finally found it. And it is unflavoured and unsweetened! Jackpot! I will faithfully keep purchasing from NZ Protein so long as there are unflavoured unsweetened options. Thank you for this product, you've made this woman very happy!

Magic powder. The unflavoured powder mixes good with some flavoured milk. Yet doesn?t froth or thicken. Never seen a powder like that before. 10 out of 10
Review by: Huria on Mon, Sep 23, 2019 6:08 PM
We really like the product but find it a bit difficult to mix. The taste is ok but not fantastic. Not a problem because we usually add green veggies and berries to our smoothies.
Excellent protein to carb ratio!!

I struggle with most dairy products and even though whey protein doesnt affect me hugely im glad ive found something similar in price, taste and consistancy because i dont like pea or rice protein. I mix this with lactose free milk or water and both taste really good. Hopefully they make a salted caramel beef protein!
Review by: Katelyn on Wed, Aug 21, 2019 12:02 PM
Another awesome and delicious alternative for those of us who can't drink whey.

Ok as a shake, but really yummo with oats
Review by: Joanna on Tue, Aug 13, 2019 7:49 PM
I have been having gut issues with Whey Protein and don't like the Pea or Egg proteins.
Bought the 1kg Chocolate and find it is great, no digestive issues and as am doing Keto, much better fit than Whey. Would be great if it came in a Mixed Berry or Strawberry flavour (just for a change of pace!!)
Review by: Lisa on Sat, Jun 22, 2019 12:55 PM
I purchased few sachets of unflavored beef protien to try. Just mixed using a spoon and mixes 100%. I am allergic to a1 dairy products ( all whey), gluten and starch. I have had no issues comsuming this. Recovery is good. Taste is not the best and is bit salty. But flavoured beef protien is .4 grams less protien a serving hence sticking with unflavored. Over all excellent product.
