What is Whey Protein?

Whey is a high quality protein powder that's rich in amino acids and Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). It comes from milk and is a by-product of the cheese making process. It has a naturally creamy texture and is the best tasting protein.

Whey protein is fast digesting and easily absorbed by the gut. It's highly nutritious and, coupled with its concentrated amino acid profile, is one of the most beneficial dietary sources of protein for muscle growth and repair - especially for pre and post exercise.

Our whey is the most popular supplement choice for athletes, fitness models, bodybuilders, and those wanting to lose weight or just add more protein to their diet.

This product is a bulk pack of whey protein concentrate from New Zealand.

New Zealand dairy cows whey production

Best Whey Protein NZ

We believe that the best whey protein is made here in New Zealand (NZ). The quality of the milk that cows produce is related to the environment and their diet, and NZ has a temperate climate which allows natural grazing all year round. The dairy cows that produce the milk used to create this product are naturally grass fed and not factory farmed. 

Cows that consume a grass fed diet produce milk with significantly more omega-3 fatty acids than grain fed cows. In fact, natural pasture fed cows produce milk with nearly twice as much omega-3 than their counterpart, with a ratio of omega-3 vs omega-6 around 1:1. This may be another benefit as diets high in omega-3 are believed to support heart and immune system health. Grass fed cows have milk that's also richer in vitamin E and beta-carotene.

New Zealand is the largest dairy exporter in the world and NZ has strict standards to protect the integrity of its dairy industry. The NZ government has rigorous testing and quality standards for milk production, and antibiotics and hormones are managed carefully against being in the milk that is used to create this product.

For these reasons New Zealand milk is often referred to as being the "cleanest in the world". 

Whey Protein Benefits

Powerful Muscle Builder
Whey is a complete protein with a concentrated amino acid profile and high amounts of branched chain amino acids that the body cannot produce and must be supplied from the foods we consume.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and muscle tissue, more commonly referred to as the 'building blocks of life'. Whey contains all 21 amino acids and also has higher levels of leucine than other protein powders. Leucine is one of the three branched chain amino acids and is primarily involved in muscle protein synthesis. Studies have shown it to be the most anabolic (growth promoting) amino acid for muscle growth and recovery.

Leucine also contributes to the regular of blood sugar levels, growth hormone production and wound healing.

Benefits whey protein may have for performance:
- Increased lean muscle mass
- Improved muscle repair and faster recovery
- Reduced break down of muscle during exercise
- Increased metabolic rate

Beneficial Nutrients
Whey is composed of several bioactive fractions including glycomacropeptide, β-lactoglobulin, α-lactalbumin and lactoferrin. These have health benefits against cancer, infection and inflammation.

Antioxidant Defense
Glutathione is a natural defensive antioxidant that the body produces from several other amino acids, especially cysteine. Whey protein is high in cysteine and studies have shown a relationship between whey and increased glutathione levels.

Blood Pressure
Various studies have found relationships between reduction in blood pressure and the consumption of dairy products.

Whey Concentrate vs Isolate

The two most popular forms of whey protein are concentrate (WPC) and isolate (WPI).

Digestibility

Protein digestibility is a measure of the proportion of protein that is absorbed by the body. Whey protein scores 100% on this scale.

Biological value is a measure of the proportion of absorbed protein that's retained for growth and maintenance. Whey scores 104 on this scale.

The Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) is a rating that determines the bioavailibility of a protein. The maximum score is 1.0. Whey technically scores 1.0 because traditionally protein quality was measured against milk, which scored 1.0. Though the scale only goes up to 1.0, realistically whey may be up to 1.21, which is the highest of all protein sources.

Good For Weight Loss

High protein diets can help people to lose weight and keep it off as consuming protein can help to preserve muscle mass, increase metabolism (by gaining muscle, in turn burning more calories), and help control blood sugar levels.

Consuming protein can help you to feel full for longer and may help to curb sugar cravings.

Whey protein in particular has been shown to be effective for increasing muscle mass and reducing fat levels.

Whey Protein Side Effects

Whey is generally well tolerated, but it is a milk product and contains lactose, so those with milk and/or lactose intolerances should avoid this product.

Vegans should avoid this product.

Our Verdict

Whey protein concentrate is a powerful muscle building protein powder. It's absorbed rapidly and helps to replenish muscle and maximise recovery by delivering concentrated levels of amino acids to the body. It surpasses other proteins for bioavailability and is the best for those wanting to gain muscle or lose fat.

Overall it's the best value too, so is our #1 recommended choice for most people (unless vegan or avoiding milk).

Rated 4.88/5 Based on 32 customer reviews.

My staff and I have been using this product for a good six months now and we're all impressed with it: Non bloating, smooth taste that's relatively non clumping when mixed and similar in nutritional value to the BSN Syntha-6 line but cheaper and overall better.

Apart from the whey being absolutely top quality, NZ Protein's customer service is top class! Dave was extremely helpful when enquiring regarding sending orders to Australia, and was in constant touch until product was delivered. Looking forward to the next order!

I am very happy with the customer service provided. It is a very professional service. I could contact and speak to a member of NZ protein team on a Sunday evening, with a quick response back.
Highly recommended
Review by: Amir on Sun, Aug 6, 2017 7:59 PM
Love the flavours I've tried so far; vanilla, mixed berries and even salted caramel which I was a bit hesitant on. Cookies n cream could do with a bit more flavour, but that is currently getting a makeover. Some protein shakes I chug down since the taste is nothing special, but with these I like to let each mouthful sit so I can enjoy the fluffy texture and yummy taste.

A ziplock bag would be nice for the 5lb protein as the included clip takes a bit of care to properly seal to avoid air gaps.
Review by: A on Fri, Jun 16, 2017 12:31 AM
I always purchase the 10lb chocolate and keep coming because NZ Protein has one of the highest protein content percentages per serve, awesome taste and of course great prices.
Review by: Vikram Fritschi on Mon, May 1, 2017 9:41 PM
Compared with the competition it's superior in every way which is why I keep coming back (3rd time buying the 4.5kg bag). I always go for the Gourmet Vanilla because it's just so tasty. I love the free gifts too... the beef jerky is very nice. Easily 5/5

Tastes great, mixes well and high protein content. It actually tastes quite similar to Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard chocolate. My item took less than 24 hours to get to me. Shipping being included is fantastic. Will definitely order again.
Review by: Nick on Mon, Jan 9, 2017 7:55 AM
I'm satisfied. Bought the Gourmet Vanilla and it tastes really nice and mixes very easily. Paid on Thursday morning and it arrived Monday early afternoon. A couple suggestions... the scoop should be on top of the powder, not buried deep down so you have to dig it out. Also a resealable bag would be a huge plus (the little clip included is handy but zip lock bag would be ideal). Will order again when this stuff's gone. :)

The best tasting protein shake. high protein content. Mixed berries taste awesome
Review by: Ronil on Thu, Jan 28, 2016 1:33 PM
Extremely fast shipping even to South Island, best price on the market and best protein per serving among other companies
Review by: Loui on Wed, Jan 13, 2016 5:59 PM
The berry goes extremely well in a smoothie with a banana, some berries, and milk and water (I use 50/50 of each). I haven't tried all the other flavours yet, but I would certainly recommend this one to anyone who makes fruit smoothies.
Review by: Alex on Thu, Jan 7, 2016 10:23 PM
I have been using this for nearly a year & cant get enough of the new double choc (used to have dark chocolate before) and banana. They're awesome when mixed together with a scoop of each in the shaker. Can you make a banana chocolate flavour? Will keep buying thats for sure
Review by: steve on Sat, Nov 21, 2015 10:50 AM
Overall, the product is great. I've been using NZ Protein for a while now and recommend it to all of my friends.

My favourite flavour has been Double Chocolate. But the new 'recipe' for double chocolate is very sweet. There's no sugar, just artifical sweetners. Nutritionally it's still good. But personally, I find the flavour far too sweet now.

Mixability 5/5
Taste 3/5
Nutritional value 5/5
Service 50/5 (Dave and the team are great)

Review by: maxi on Sun, Oct 12, 2014 8:59 PM
Hey guys! I have absolutely LOOVVVVEEDDD your sample in vanilla, by far the best tasting vanilla I have ever tried, and at such an affordable cost. I was wondering though, I was keen on also getting some casein from you guys in the same order, when do you think it will be in stock? I would have given a rating of 8/5 if it could let me!
