nzprotein whey protein powder 5lbs tub

NZ Whey 5lbs (2.27kg)

Clean Muscle Replenishing Protein From Grass Fed Cows (5lbs)






$70.00 (NZD)

Great Tasting Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein that's Made in New Zealand From Grass Fed Cows

NZProtein's Whey is a popular choice as it's a fast digesting protein powder that's rich in amino acids and Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). It helps to replenish muscle and maximise recovery by quickly and efficiently delivering essential amino acids to the body. Whey also has a biological value of over 100 – the highest possible from any protein source.

Each serving contains over 24g of clean protein (Gourmet Vanilla flavour) from New Zealand (NZ) with less carbohydrates, fat, and other things you can do without. There are no added fillers, thickeners, or other agents.


New Zealand made whey proteins are considered to be the cleanest in the world because the dairy cows that produce the milk used to create this product are naturally grass fed - not factory farmed, and the NZ Government has banned the use of antibiotics and hormones in the milk that is used to create this product.

Great Tasting

This product is clean tasting and has a natural creamy texture - without any added thickeners to modify the texture, or added fillers (sometimes referred to as 'processing aids') to dilute the protein level.

Not sure which flavour protein shake is for you? Try one of our samples here. Each sample sachet measures one serving - enough to make a shake to try.

Lower Cost

There are 72 servings in the 5lbs tub, driving the cost per serve to below $1!

Mixes Easily

This product is instantised which means that it mixes easily in water, milk, or your favourite liquid without lumps. It can be mixed in a handshaker or with a spoon.


- Nearly 5g of glutamine & precursors per serve
- Laboratory formulated
- Manufactured to strict New Zealand food safety standards.

Suggested Use

Consuming high quality protein at regular intervals throughout the day can encourage a positive nitrogen balance, aid recovery, and help to increase metabolism.

Like many people, I’ve tried so many protein powders, and there either incredible sweet, don’t mix well or leave me feeling uncomfortably bloated. But not this protein! If unsure on what flavour you want you can order little samples to try but regardless every flavour is amazing. Chocolate is my go to, especially with my oats in the morning!
If you find your going through your protein quite quickly just let them know how much you want and theyll do it! Oh and don’t get rid of your tubs because the bigger sizes come in a bag and you can just pour it into your tubs, easy as!
And lastly let’s not forget to mention the amazing service and speedy delivery, Thanks Dave!

Can we please take a moment to appreciate the white choc raspberry flavour?? OMG it is so goooood! I was so skeptical at first (I usually buy run of the mill flavours like vanilla or chocolate - on occasion branching out to FRENCH vanilla) because I've tried other flavours that just did not work well together i.e. rocky road choc from ON - yuck! The stats on this is great, tastes great, NZ made, what more could you want? Hesitant to try the choc mint in case it's not as good but fingers crossed!!

I have tried a few of the whey protein powders. The most recent one I have tried is the banana flavor and its def the best one I have tried out of Double chocolate, cookies and cream flavors that I have tried. Just ordered a whole bunch of samples to try out this week to.
Review by: Lagi on Tue, Jul 24, 2018 11:00 AM
I have never tasted such a smooth whey. Fabulous product. I am trying the Double Chocolate and my flatmate is trying the White chocolate & raspberry one, I would go for the latter the next time. Its amazingly creamy.
Review by: Ali on Sun, Jul 22, 2018 10:57 AM
Amazingly fast delivery and such a smooth creamy flavour. I ordered the 5lb tub of Gourmet Vanilla, order was placed about 9.30pm on Monday night and it was in my hot little hands by 1.30pm the next day. So happy with the delivery, the flavour and the price. Will definately be placing more orders and look forward to trying the other flavours!
Review by: Carel on Wed, Jul 18, 2018 10:18 AM
Ordered multiple times from NZProtein. Most recent order was on Sunday night 9pm, received my package the very next morning. Great service every time + great quality products too. Gourmet Vanilla and Double chocolate are the yummiest! Mixes so well, no lumps and no weird after taste! Tastes like an actual milkshake. Bible.
Review by: Livi on Tue, Jul 17, 2018 12:18 PM
Tried many of the flavours which are all great. Caramel being my favourite. The protein mixes extremely well very quickly without any lumps.

Tastiest Protein Ever (Gourmet Vanilla). Mixes very easily with water and really easy to digest. My first purchase from NZ Protein. Fastest delivery. Would recommend NZ Protein to everyone. I am very happy with their Quality.
Review by: ARJUN SINGH on Wed, May 23, 2018 11:51 PM
1st purchase from nzprotein and I'm impressed. Just mixed 1 serving of the salted caramel with 250mL of cold water and it was great. Excellent taste and texture.
Review by: Roy on Wed, Apr 4, 2018 10:13 AM
Just ordered my first ever batch if whey from you guys. Gormet vanilla was the flavour chose and it is whey good!! So delicious and mixes well!! Cheers guys will be back!!!
Review by: Chris on Mon, Mar 5, 2018 7:14 PM
Killing it guys! Tried banana, jaffa, chocolate, vanilla, berry, salted caramel and cookies and they are all pretty good if not delicious!! If your thinking about buying, read further.
We have tried a few brands of proteins, these I can say definitely compete with the big international brands.
$ for $, massive savings here.
Nutritional? I compared Banana with MP Combat Banana, this was better in almost every category, lower sodium, higher protein, far lower carbs - the only thing this didn't beat them on was fat content which this was a few grams more but not concerning.
Flavour reviews;
Salted Caramel - one of the more subtle flavours but my favourite. It tasted like a real treat!
Cookies - we both enjoyed this. True to taste and creamy!
Banana - 10/10 ! Loved their version of Banana. No after taste, not too strong, perfect combo.
Berry - pretty good but not a favourite, though never have been of any berry proteins.
Chocolate - Yum, no after taste, good flavour, not too strong.
Vanilla - Primo! We aren't big fans of vanilla usually but this one is sweet and delicious! Would be great in baking I would think. Flavour is not too strong but definitely creamy and sweet!
Jaffa - we tried this for kicks. Its yum for sure and if your a jaffa fan, it should hit the spot. Flavour is reasonably subtle but definitely no doubt that it is true to taste.
They all smell fantastic before you even put them in the liquid! Love it.

We have found whey an excellent product and have been using for over 4 years as a supplement for farm work and heavy exercise. Invaluable for keeping away real physical lows after extra heavy exercise and for giving a consistent level of energy over a long period of time. thank you NZ protein

Fantastic quality, quick delivery, great communication - would 100% recommend!
Review by: Anonymous on Fri, Jan 12, 2018 10:03 AM
Used this protein whey several times now and it is by far the best on the market. Dissolves well, tastes great and helps my body recover quickly. My best is the mixed berry flavour, chuck it in the blender with some berries and milk and you have the best tasting shake out there!
Review by: Gaius Piesse on Sun, Jan 7, 2018 9:47 AM
Just bought my first tub of Salted caramel
and I'm very impressed!!!
Fast delivery, decent price, Great taste and mixes well!
Can't ask for much more.
5 stars. Look forward to trying out the other flavours

Review by: Anthony T Ratima on Thu, Nov 16, 2017 7:18 PM
Excellent protein powder! I love Jaffa and banana but I also tried lime, cookies and cream and salted caramel and they are really good as well. Fast delivery and great service. Can't wait to buy more protein powder!
Review by: Emma on Tue, Nov 7, 2017 7:21 PM
Excellent protein powder, probably the best I've tried so far. Banana, chocolate, salted caramel, and vanilla all taste great, and are cheaper than Gold Standard, Musclepharm, and other popular powders. Protein yield is comparable with all the other top brands. Also, it seems to sit less heavy in the stomach than other powders, even with milk, which is a bonus. 5/5.
Review by: Joseph Fleming on Thu, Oct 19, 2017 9:15 AM
Salted Caramel is awesome! Not sickly sweet. We've tried to mix it up with the chocolate but found it a lot sweeter and salted caramel is just the best :)
Review by: Kaya Brophy on Tue, Sep 26, 2017 1:44 PM
Mixes well. Just tried the Lime flavour for the first time which tasted just like a milkshake! Would definitely recommend. I certainly will be coming back to purchase more products from NZ Protein.
Review by: Maxwell on Tue, Sep 19, 2017 4:02 PM
I've never been a fan of protein powders because they have been too sweet and gritty but I love this double chocolate powder. Thanks for the super fast delivery I ordered another 2.5kgs at 8am yesterday and it was delivered the next day. Love the Double Chocolate and the Gourment Vanilla for a simple powder.
Review by: Anonymous on Tue, Sep 19, 2017 11:32 AM
Been taking protien shakes for the past 20+ years. First time user of this product, it mixes well (don't have to use too much milk) and taste good (banana). Impressed.

It's only been under a week since I have Bega taking it so won't see results immediately, muscle wise.
Review by: Anonymous on Mon, Sep 18, 2017 8:30 AM
I'm really impressed with this product. I've tried some of the top international whey brands and this NZ made product is just as good, if not better. Many of the top brands I find are too sweet, but not nzprotein. It's the right sweetness, flavors taste good and mixes really easily. They also deliver super fast, usually arriving the next day.

Review by: Mathew on Tue, Jun 13, 2017 12:24 PM
I had used Optimum Nutrition and Giant Sports protein for years until I stumbled across this protein and all of the reviews and decided to give it a crack. I ordered the mixed berry and tried it. This protein is amazing, it tastes awesome, mixes well, and doesn't feel as heavy or processed as a lot of the competition. I am converted and highly recommend this product. I look forward to trying more flavours and chucking the mixed berry into smoothies and yoghurt. Cheers team!
Review by: Matt on Wed, May 10, 2017 10:59 AM
This is by far the best and tastyest protein I've ever consume! Not only it has an excellent taste (vanilla and mixed berries) but the miscibility is also perfect compare to other brands. I'm now obsessed with using my whey protein powder between my meals, after my gym sessions and I can really see a big difference since I started using it. So far I've used my vanilla and mixed berries protein twice a day in different smoothie and I love it! I love the fact that this protein is a 100% from New Zealand, it is cheap and you would not taste something better. I love it with milk, and with water it also tastes great. I would highly recommend you to try nz protein believe my experience you would not be disappointed!

Have been using another brand that every time I drink hurts my tummy instantly so I thought I couldn't have whey anymore I decided to buy some sachets to try the nz protein whey after talking to one of the staff on messenger who was very helpful so far I've tried vanilla and chocolate it mixes very well just in a shaker even great taste not super sweet like my other brand and dosent taste artificial and leave a bad after taste like I'm use to I will be trying caramel today and decide what my fave flavour is and will be buying a big one so happy to have found such a fantastic nz brand that has it all.
Review by: Michelle otago on Sun, May 7, 2017 11:24 AM
This is by far the best protein I've ever tried! And of course the most delicious!! I'm obsessed with using my whey protein powder, constantly adding it to my meals! So far I've used my salted caremel protein in my protein balls and the chocolate whey in my nut bars! AMAZING!!! Such good quality! Love mine with just water, mixes so well, never have any lumps! Would highly recommend nz protein!
Review by: Gemma on Sun, May 7, 2017 10:27 AM
Love it
There are so many reasons why

1) Great taste with either water or milk, I love it with almond milk :)

2) It mixes well and does not leave any lumps.

3) When mixed it is not thin or thick, I find it to be just right. I take two scoops (4 scoops using the scoop you get in the tub)

4) Good explanation on nutritional information and amino acid measurement per serve

Best protein in NZ
Review by: Anonymous on Thu, May 4, 2017 1:45 PM
Best tasting protein powder I've tasted and mixes really well. After first buying it 4 years ago at my gym, ive not looked at changing to any other protein powder as it provides good protein level, and satiety when training, excellent for assisting muscle recovery post-workout and hypertrophy for muscle growth. The new flavours are great too.
Review by: Kat on Wed, May 3, 2017 9:07 PM
First time buying protien and this was the best! Had tried some other friends protien powders before and this was on the next level. I'm not talking about just taste. I'm talking about the high quality of the powder. It mixs very well compared to other s and it's super clean protien. Put the quality aside its amazing for baking. Smoothies, cakes, hummus! You name it. Awsome first but and definitely coming back.
Review by: Connor Putnam on Mon, May 1, 2017 9:37 PM
Recently bought your product for the first time, I got the salted caramel and have to say it's amazing. No weird after taste and mixes well. Def be buying again, look forward to trying the other flavours.

Cleanest and best tasting protein on the market today. All the flavours mix well with milk as well which isn't always the case with other brands. Quality product and fast shipping.

NZP's salted caramel WPC is the GOAT protein flavour. It even tastes amazing and has good thickness with just water.
Review by: David on Mon, May 1, 2017 9:05 AM
This is the best tasting and value for money protein I have come across. I'm pretty sure I've tried every flavour, there are no duds and no weird after taste. Mixes well with water and milk and the scoop size is pretty small so it lasts a while. Delivery is super fast, so when your running low you know you can get your next batch without hassle.
Review by: Adrian Campbell on Mon, May 1, 2017 9:05 AM
Just started using this product, changed from a significantly more expensive overseas product, that was very good I might add.

This protein is great value and tastes great. The shake is high in protein and doesn't' upset my stomach or make me breakout like other cheaper ones do.

NZ Protein provide a good delivery service (next day in Wellington).
Review by: Neelish on Mon, May 1, 2017 8:58 AM
I recommended this product to everyone who asks me what type of protein to buy. I love it! It has a clean profile and a high protein content, with great taste. I use to struggle to drink protein but ever since I started taking NZ protein, I have had no issues what so ever. Plus, it always arrives super fast. Thank you NZ protein!

Honestly the best protein I have had and the customer service from NZ protein is second to none! The flavours are all awesome, I don’t like super sweet things and the banana and berry are perfect (the cookies and cream flavour is also unreal blended with coffee and a little milk). You also know it doesn’t have the usual additives etc. as it doesn’t leave any gross smell in shakers like other protein. Love it!

Excellent taste; easy to mix and not sickening sweet like other brands I've tried. Definitely one of the best whey protein powders I've tried and its made right here in NZ. Wish I knew about this product sooner rather than forking out 30% more on US brands that tasted gross.

Can't fault anything here - my order arrived within five hours of me placing it (unheard of)! I ordered chocolate and it tastes amazing - like chocolate milk i.e. not like sweetener.

Before I do anything. IM VERY IMPRESSED! Ive wanted to try this company for a while now but kept forgetting NZPROTEIN was around, so I put my order in Sunday night and got my package the very next day - SUPER FAST DELIVERY! Ive never tried a banana flavoured protein before but I've wanted to for a while so I took the chance and ordered the banana flavour and its most probably the nicest protein powder flavour I've ever tasted and I've been through a lot of other companies before the switch. Safe to say ill be staying with NZPROTEIN for a while now! Cant foget to mention the price 69$ for a 72 serving tub! Keep up the great work team! (Beldor from Facebook)

Both the company and its products (specifically Gourmet Vanilla, Double Chocolate and Dark Chocolate) are absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend NZProtein enough! I placed my order at 3pm and received my order at 9am the following morning, talk about first class delivery service! The Whey Protein itself is the BEST on the market, it is the cheapest and has the smoothest texture and the taste is just sublime! I am still unsure as to why anyone buys protein from anywhere else because NZProtein's products literally sell themselves. If you want a perfect tasting Whey Protein, with quality service look no further.

What I liked about this product is that it comes in a true to size tub that is filled to the top.( neck ) not like some other well known brands out there which are oversized & full of air. Im not going to buy over priced air anymore, this is my go too from now on, taste is pretty good & mixes easly. 5/5

Great whey. Double chocolate flavour is awesome. When i opened the container it was full not like other products and much cheaper than other famous brands such as Optimum nutrition. Will be using this brand for sure. NZ protein rocks. (Sunny)

double choc really amazing flavor I feel a lot of brands especially the big ones do a poor chocolate flavor and the only way to make it better is by adding sugar. Urs is amazing without the added carbs. Happy customer thankyou for your help (Cory M)

Review by: Alvic on Wed, Nov 25, 2015 2:19 PM
The new double chocolate is very good, when I mix it with milk it reminds me of cadbury drinking chocolate. I'd give it a 10/10, well done!

This review is for the new chocolate, berry and vanilla flavours.

Double chocolate:
Flavour 5/5, it is fantastic!
Mix-ability 5/5 mixes instantly!
This tastes just like chocolate, not like artificial crap like most other brands.

Gourmet vanilla
Flavour 5/5 it tastes just like real vanilla, and is not watery like most vanilla flavours.
Mix-ability 5/5 mixes perfect every time
This tastes of REAL vanilla, like the vanilla part in a creme brûlée.

Mixed berry
Flavour 5/5
Mix-ability 5/5 mixes perfect every time.
Imagine you just got a handful of your favourite berries, put them in a blending and made them into a smooth liquid, this is exactly what this tastes like!

If you want products that taste exactly what you expect the label should e.g. chocolate actually tastes like chocolate, vanilla actually tastes like vanilla and berry actually tastes like berries then buy NZ Protein, if you would rather buy crap then buy one of the other leader brands.

just wanted to thank you guys for the exceptional service and speedy delivery, I've been using your protein for months now and without doubt is by far the best on the planet! Ha, tried most flavours but mixed berry goes down a treat.NZ protein rock

I just want to let you know that I have been taking whey protein for years now and have had pretty much all the major brands and brought from all the major stores. I can tell you with 100% certainty that your protein is by far the best in terms of both quality and value. (ANDREW A)

I've tried s few of these flavours and their all great! Very clean and mix well!

Mixability: 5/5 30 seconds of shaking in water and you're done

Flavour: 4/5 artificial yet beautiful taste, not too sweet and not chemically tasting like some

Overall: great protein and very clean ingredients

Dark choc
Mixability: 5/5

Flavour: 5/5 tastes like choc milk (by far my favourite)

Overall: perfect taste not sweet at all just the right amount of added sweetener, mixes perfectly in milk and water

Mix ability: 5/5

Flavour: 5/5 surprisingly great. Was blown away. Tastes just like a lime milkshake (when mixed in milk)

Overall: don't be scared by this one you won't be disappointed

Double choc

Mix ability:5/5

Flavour: 3/5 would have preferred it sweeter as the description states it's sweet but still has a great choc flavour

Overall: great protein and very clean profile

My recommendation would either be purchase lemon/lime or dark choc. You can purchase sample packs to see which is best for you.

Wow. First time using NZ Protein. Ordered and it was on my doorstep in the South Island the very next day. Tastes great, mixes easy, and is a great price. Will definitely be ordering more!!!

The flavour free plain whey powder was my staple protein start to the day in the last couple of months of my pregnancy. Now I have a healthy beautiful baby boy, I am keeping up with this supplement for breastfeeding. it's great in my morning I know their is nothing artificial added to it :)

I am a very haooy returning customer, have tried double chocolate, cookies and cream and have just recieved mixed berries. All the flavours have been some of the best tasting protein I've ever had. As for the product, it mixes well, it's clean and gives me good results. I will definitely be returning for more! (Billy H)

Review by: dan on Tue, Dec 16, 2014 6:42 PM
Mixes well and tastes good, minimal ingredients added which is ideal because it doesn't dilute the protein level. Am on my third bag now and highly recommended to everybody. Arron
Review by: arron on Fri, Nov 21, 2014 10:39 AM
I was told about this by a friend,was using nutratech before and definitely like this one a lot more because it tastes a lot better (mixing is about the same). Good value for a NZ brand
Review by: sua on Thu, Nov 13, 2014 7:42 AM
Chocolate - Really good, mixes well, not too strong in flavour and no chemical aftertaste like you get with some big brand proteins.
Strawberry - Strong flavour, very sweet, mixes well.
Vanilla - didn't mix very well, still lumpy after a lot of shaking.
On the whole a really good product, and you can taste the fact that it doesn't have a lot of artificial additives.
Review by: Lawrence on Sun, Nov 9, 2014 5:03 PM
Found this site in google when comparing a few. I have used a lot of brands of protein before and these guys are cost effective with great service; They emailed me back at midnight in the weekend and phoned me the next day to make sure my order arrived as quick as possible. To me that goes beyond the call of duty. The taste is good, it is clean protein from nz, what more can I say!

Review by: Lee on Wed, Oct 22, 2014 9:23 AM
Tried a sample and was blown away. My tastebuds are sensitive and I don't get the metallicy taste coming through like some others do. Will be using this brand for sure.
Review by: James on Mon, Oct 20, 2014 10:36 AM
Only judging by the one sample satchet given, this whey protein was already in high marks on the following accounts.

In terms of taste it was the best tasting protein I've tasted. I rate it highly above Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey which i am currently consuming. Although its one less serving, the NZ Protein makes up in content compared to ON being .8 more grams in protein, .6 grams more in essential BCAA's.

It feels as if it is what a whey protein should feel like as it goes down a lot easier, less thickness to it and less froth.

This comes from not only the good content but its the cleanliness in the NZ Dairy source. Beneficial because there are no hormones and antibiotics and is just an overall cleaner source of protein.

Outdoing Optimum Nutrition by .8 grams of protein its still accounted for as .8 more gains.

Content is excellent, easy to mix, and would definately be my next investment to further look into its overall effectiveness.

cheers for the sample.
