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.
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!
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!
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
Natural unflavoured tastes great and mixes really well. Super fast shipping too
I been having the banana but just tried the mixed berry taste great and mixes easy as.
I think this product is great. Tastes good and mixes well. NZ made is always a big plus
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!
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.
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 :)
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great protein tried choc mint, double choc and cookie n cream rate it GAF and super fast deliver and i live rural great product and good customer service
Been using protein powder on & off for the past 30yrs. this would be up there with the best of them. I got the salted caramel , wow what a great taste. Highly recommend this product. Great taste , mixes well & of course nz made.
Love the taste and consistency of the gourmet vanilla protein. Highly recommended
Tastes great, not sweet, is delivered real fast, decent price - what else is there to say?
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!
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
Best, most tasty protein I've had, will only ever buy NZ Protein! Love the new flavours too!
Been using NZProtein Whey for 3 years and LOVE it, Mixed Berry is my favourite- great taste and great value
First Protein Powder I ever tried and have never gone back have recommended it to everyone and they are loving it as much as I am! Mixes well in smoothies juices or just water I love adding it into my baking and additions to meals! Keep it up NZ protein forget the best!
Ordered both salted caramel and orange choc chip recently. Definitely the best tasting protein i've had. Causes no bloating or acid reflux like some other brands
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.
Pretty awesome product. Cheaper than other brands. Would have given it a five but it does not micpx that well in hot water
Fantastic product. Really yummy, clean without all the additives, great value and super fast delivery.
I can't recommend this product enough, the protein content and the taste is on point. The best thing is the price!
love this protein goes so well with my spinach smoothies after the gym
Love the taste of this protein, I got Salted Caramel. Mixes extremely well with water and tastes like Salted Caramel. Definitely will buy another tub (maybe a different flavour to experiment)
Best protein ever!! Cookies and cream and salted caramel taste just like ice cream and super easy to digest! Have been recommending to everyone I know. Best protein and supplements on the market especially with fast and free delivery
This is the best tasting whey protein i have ever tried and the cost is really decent too :)
NZP's salted caramel WPC is the GOAT protein flavour. It even tastes amazing and has good thickness with just water.
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.
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).
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!
Tastes great and mixes well and great value for price!
I've had the cookies and cream and the chocolate flavours, and they were both awesome! Really great tasting and super clean which is what I love about them! Thanks guys :)
Great product @ a great price. Will be back for more. Thanks ! - C.
Just wanted to let you know it arrived today, and it is freaking amazing [Orange Choc Chip]. Didn't think it could get better than salted caramel, but this is a whole new level.
Keep up the awesome work you're doing. (Lihan C)
Just wanted to say thanks last time for a great protein! Have been looking for something like this for a while, have tried all the others that leave you feeling bloated and/or a bad taste in your mouth + the nutritional value that makes sense! Love it! (Sam - Activenation)
Just tried the salted caramel and I think I came a little!
By far the best protein powder flavour I have ever had, thanks Dave, keep these amazing flavours coming dude!
just finished a tub of banana flavour and its mean!! mixes well and taste great!! no yucky after taste or lump's of unmixed powder just a smooth and creamy shake. can't beat the price or the flavour in my book so this is my brand from now on. thanks guys!! next up cookies and cream.....
Awesome high quality protein at affordable price. Tastes amazing and mixes superbly even without a shaker. Cookies n cream taste like the real deal. Goes on par with ON gold standard whey. Even better in my opinion. Overall great real value. Can't wait to try different flavors!
All of the flavours I have tried (salted caramel, banana, cookies and cream, lime) but seriously the Salted Caramel flavour is freaking out of this world!!! I cannot stress this enough...it will change your life. Seriously.
The product and service you get from nzprotein is second to none. The vanilla is perfect and mixes better than any protein powder I've experienced. All of my emails pertaining to my order were answered promptly and you do get the feeling that they care greatly for their customers. I will continue to order from this site. Keep up the good work!
Great flavor, mixes easily and very competitive price. It's got massive amounts of protein per serve. What more can you ask for!
Will continue to buy more when I run out!
Thanks for super fast delivery. And the caramel flavour is very nice (Jakub)
That is my new go to flavour bro.
Salted caramel is on point. Whatever you did it taste amazing.
Thanks again (Valentino)
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!
Fantastic Protein powder, I got the banana flavoured and tastes just like banana milk even when mixed with water! Mixes Easily. Very impressed
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.
Ordered My Double Chocolate on a Wednesday afternoon was here the next day awesome taste easy to mix Shane
Great service! Received my order the day after - Tastes good and will definitely be buying again! :)
Bought first time 2 weeks ago and totally enjoying everything. Easy mix awesome tasting and light and easy to drink. Brilliant stuff certainly converted looking forward to trying other flavors.
Brilliant product. Cheaper than others and actually does taste clean. I've had the double chocolate and mixed berry so far and both have been creamy, easy to mix, and taste good even in water. A+ team
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. Have just ordered sample sachets of three other flavours as I will be ordering again and again and again - seeya other brands I've tried! xx
Fastest delivery ever!! Product is great and service is a 5 star for me. Thanks again.
I ordered the 2kg Whey Protein for the first time which was recommended by a friend, talk about fast delivery!! Placed order Tuesday 1pm and received my package this morning. Amazing service and never had anything this quick delivered. Worth the money as well for such a big container.
You guys are great and your product is the best in NZ at a very affordable price. Keep up all the best and thank you (Avishek)
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)
Hands down, this is the best protein powder on the market! I cannot recommend enough! Great taste, fantastic muscle building properties, and the best customer service! Quick replies and personal responses. 10/10 across the board!
Have tried the double chocolate - 5/5 for taste and mixing, and berry - also 5/5 for taste and mixing. Really good communication too, A+
The best value out there - and I've tried a few!! Great products
First of all,i have pretty much tried every protein in the NZ market.
-no fillers or spiking
-no gastro problems 3serves a day
-mixes well and tastes great.
Double choc - 9.5/10
CnC - 9/10
Definitely have a customer for life.
Had the mixed Berry and loved it, not to sweet but then i do have a sweet tooth.
Good product, fast delivery. I got the double chocolate. It's quite sweet, but flavor is good. I'm happy. Cheers guys
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.
awesome delivery time, and an amazing product, flavor is second to none, and that is all of them.... the search is over as far as I am concerned
Delivery speed was insanely quick. Ordered at night and received at 12pm the next day. I love that the container is packed full, unlike some other brands which maybe get the inspiration from bags of chips? Anyway, mixes and tastes just great. Awesome!
A very well priced quality product. Has helped in gaining strength, stamina and muscle weight. Product delivery time undoubtedly exceptional.
Ordered 5lb whey protein on Monday morning, delivered on Tuesday lunchtime.Unbeleivable service.
The vanilla has a great taste.A very happy first time customer
Excellent service ( Delivered the next day) great taste and not overpriced. Also, the tub is not like the other proteins where the tub is quarter air!
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)
Received my order in less than 24 hours. Mixed berry taste is awesome and when i opened the container it was full to the brim, not like other products when it's nearly half empty! Chur chur NZ Protein!!
Great Whey & Casein! Dollar for Dollar you cant beat NZ Protein!
Just writing to thank you for your excellent service. I received my whey protein in less than 24 hours of ordering. Keep up the good work! (Darren F)
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)
Awesome protein. I ordered Double Chocolate and just tastes amazing with one of the best Macros suits my daily macronutrients. Awesome stuff guys! Will be ordering some more soon
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!
Excellence absolutely amazing fast service NZ Protein is the BEST.
Exceptional service AAA+++ ordered my NZ Protein late last night and received product by 2.30pm this afternoon whoo best ever service fasted and most reliable I have come across love your protien.
This review is for the new chocolate, berry and vanilla flavours.
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.
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.
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
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
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!!!
Just wanted to say thank you very much. The protein is amazing in taste and knowing that it is made here in New Zealand is such a comforting feeling. Keep up the good work guys! (Cole M)
Love the Price, Flavours, Product ideas (everyone at work loves the portable refills) and cant overstate the service I have received enough! Fast delivery and friendly service!
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 smoothie...plus 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)
The vanilla is much nicer than the gold standard and the customer service is outstanding, I've never had a company emailing me back and forth after midnight
This is the best protein product I have tasted, am loving the dark choco flavour. Great to know there's no acesulfame k. Will be recommending it to my mates.
Very nice banana flavour
Ordered in the afternoon and came the next morning. Very easy to order and yum product. Would definitely buy again :)
very quick to reply to emails and received product very quickly
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
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
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.
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!
very impressive how it ranks, loved the samples and got them really quickly. have been using other protien brands for years and im looking forward to switching over
Real fast delivery, great followup service. much cheaper than optimum Nutrition gold standard and I like the taste more
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.
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.
Best tasting and smooth as.
Fully recommending to my clients
Great Tasting Protein! Mixes well and has very high content of protein per serving! Will definitely continue to buy this product!
Amazing, great customer service and the fastest delivery I've ever had from a business. Recommend to everyone absolutely fantastic, mixes easily and tastes great. Will be using NZProtein for all my supplement needs
Awesome value protein - its refreshing to find a natural protein without isolates and actually has a short list of ingredients.Tastes good and mixes easy in water.
Great deal, loving it. Sly
Much cleaner than what I've been using, very happy with my order, thanks nzprotein
Super fast delivery and good product
Yumm, liking the vanilla
