    I may be ignorant but what's cheap about this when 1kg at Bulk Nutrients is cheaper, more flavours, bulk discount etc?

    •  

      I agree its nothing special, even chemist warehouse sometimes have 50% off sometimes thats when i stock.
      However bcaas and preworkout are a bargain.

          Was 50% off all Musashi a couple of weeks back.

            @whitelie: I think Musashi is not highly rated

            https://www.canstarblue.com.au/health-beauty/protein-supplem...

            Even Aldi slim n trim, meant for weight loss, is rated higher than Musashi. Worrying if a weight loss shake is rated as a better protein shake than an actual WPC shake

            Btw Musashi is on special at Coles presently

              @docians: Firstly, they're comparing apples and oranges in that article. They should only be comparing protein powders, not diet shakes, Sustagen (seriously?) all in the same article as it's pointless.

              Compare the very very basic numbers they listed there…
              Aldi Slim and Trim has 15g of protein in a 55g serve or 27%.
              Musashi 100% Whey has 23g per 34g serve or 67%.

              I don't know about you, but I want protein in my protein powder/shake. I'm not paying for sweeteners and other fillers. If I wanted milk powder, I'd go and buy it.
              There should be a bare minimum of 20g of protein in a 30g serve. Higher if its WPI. If there isn't, you're paying for rubbish.

                You are making the assumption that everyone is on protein supplements to bulk up

                I’m using these shakes as meal replacement
                ALDI shakes while tasting great have about 28gm sugar
                18gm protein is plenty for my needs
                And these shakes have a lower sugar content and help my ketogenic needs
                Actually sweeteners and not sugar are actually what I need for my short term health goals

                  @docians: I'm not advocating for Musashi, merely mentioned that it was on special at Chemist Warehouse when you asked which brands they had. I would pick BN every single time. Best bang for buck out there, know exactly what you're getting and you don't need to shop around for specials.

                  You are making the assumption that everyone is on protein supplements to bulk up

                  Higher protein content does not mean one is taking them to "bulk up". It means you are getting what you are paying for.
                  In fact, the higher dextrose content of the cheaper products would have more effect on adding bulk than consuming higher protein and less carbs.

                  If all you want is sweetener and milk powder, buy a kilo bag of dextrose for $4, a kilo of milk powder for $5 and some ice cream topping, Nesquick or other flavouring of your choice from the supermarket, no point spending $30 on "protein" powder. Even cheaper still, you may as well just drink 500ml of skim milk. You'll get 17g of protein and 25g of carbs.

                  I would even be dubious about the nutrient breakdown of the cheaper products, it reminds me of the "NoBull" saga of years gone by. Milk powder passed off as top shelf protein powder. I would (and have done in the past) send a sample off to Bulk Nutrients who will test the protein content for you. That's how confident they are in their product, you can see the lab results for every protein product they stock, current and past. Not too many other companies will do that.

                    Since you obviously have no medical background, having just advised a diabetic to have 25gm of carbs (=5 tsp sugar), could you please refrain from passing on your “advice”.

          Musashi and inc, musashi is pretty good tasting and ingredient wise pretty standard.
          I do think that review is a bit off but general trend seems fine, if we are running off rrp i would probably go optimum nutrition (have not tested bulk nutrients) but when musashi has say a 50% sale hands down best value, however ON has a bit better taste imo but cant beat the sales value

      what's cheap about this when 1kg at Bulk Nutrients is cheaper, more flavours, bulk discount etc?

      If I were to order 1kg of bulk nutrients WPC, it would cost me $32 including delivery. I am a light user at this stage so bulk discounts does not apply to me

      I prefer my protein powder in more sturdy packaging. Once I have a few empty jars, bulk nutrients may be an option.

      Btw I have tried bulk nutrients samples and the only flavours I have liked were cookies n cream and banana, so yes taste is subjective. I do like my vanilla, but I could not see myself buying bulk nutrients vanilla. Wish I liked chocolate flavour, but I don't.

    Without looking at the ingredients profile, I'd get MP Combat over Aldi protein but maybe that's just me. $29 delivered, plus loyalty credit, shopback/cashrewards.
    https://au.iherb.com/pr/MusclePharm-Combat-Protein-Powder-Va...
    $50.61 if you want the 1.8kg

    However I'd take the BN stuff nearly everytime as you know what you're getting.

    I also highly recommend MP Wreckage, a very good pre workout, especially at around $35. Only need a single scoop as there's 300mg of caffeine. An actual 25 serves per container where the cheaper stuff you generally need 2-3 scoops.

    Hmmn the link actually shows me 907gm for $41.42?

    With Aldi if I try a scoop and I don't like it I'll take it right back.

    With most of the others if I don't like it I'll be stuck with it

    •  

      30% off when added to cart. Runs till the end of the year.

      •  

        Still $29 for 907 gm, works out to $32 per kilo without cashback

        And if I don't like it I'm stuck with it. Besides it is ranked #8 among iherbs protein blends, so at least on iherb there are better products.

        Not saying this Aldi product will be better. But at least their slim n trim is ranked higher than optislim, optifast etc

    You need to be very careful with buying protein powders now.

    The whole industry is unregulated and they're selling you 99.9% milk powder and .1% protein powder..

    The real protein powders are heading extremely expensive now, $179 a tub etc.

    It's like them painting a pile of shit gold and selling it to you as a gold nugget. But some people are gullible :(

    •  

      which protein powder(s) cost $179 a tub?

    • +1 vote

      lol $180 a tub. Maybe if you're buying 4.5kg of Optimum Gold at full price…even then it's $40/kg.

      While I agree in part that many are 'cut' with milk powder, you can get them tested thru Bulk Nutrients. They also list the lab results for all of their protein products. At $25 (or less if you buy more) for a kilo of WPC, you don't need to spend a fortune to get a legit product.

        Pity they can't use Australian milk in their products, and help local farmers.

          I know the owners from advanced sports nutrition. They make hp100 and is well versed in what the industry is doing.

          My previous employer made their labelling machine along with a lot of other companies in Australia.

          But look at the down votes, clearly consumers aren't well versed lol.

          It's not 'cut' with, it IS milk powder.

          Advanced sports nutrition protein powders come from Germany and are triple sifted so it actually dissolves in water. 1.8kg is $179 full wack!

          Simply look at the back, if it says not suitable for lactose intolerant people it's milk powder they're selling you.

          But hey, I've only dealt with OWNERS of these companies, what would I know. 99% of this stuff comes from China in 4 tonn sacks. It's cheap as chips. True protein powder is actually expensive.

          • +2 votes

            @DisabledUser79204: You're almost saying the opposite…true protein powder, like the stuff from Bulk Nutrients that has it's protein content verified and recorded is cheap. This "Whey Peptide" rubbish that you're talking about is expensive for nothing more than milk powder.

            All whey protein will contain some lactose as that is where the lactose in milk comes from. If you don't want (or can't have) lactose, look in to a Collagen, Hemp or Amino Acid based protein product.

          Wow they can do all that?

          Yes, can find testing information here
          https://www.bulknutrients.com.au/bulk-nutrients-lab-testing-...
          I have previously sent samples away and was happy with their reporting and turn around time.
          Pretty sure they also have a quick test kit available which tests a teaspoon of powder and will immediately change colour to indicate the protein quantity of the product. If it is cut with sweeteners or milk powder it will show up as a different colour.
          They are the most transparent supplement company I have seen and are not trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes unlike many in an unregulated industry.

          Pity they can't use Australian milk in their products, and help local farmers.
          My package says made from 0% Australian ingredients

          They switched to a US raw product around a year ago, it's all explained here
          https://www.bulknutrients.com.au/blog/a-new-bulk-wpc-lower-p...

          If you want an Australian product, use their Micellar Casein which uses NSW cows. It's also likely a better product for meal replacement as it keeps you fuller for longer as opposed to WPC/WPI based products.

          Does ALDI protein powder use Aussie cows as their source?

          • -1 vote

            @damontyler: Yes, but only three flavours, all of which I've tried, none of which I've liked.
            9 flavours across their regular WPC range.

            I might give VPA a go, Aussie product, 14 flavours. I'll hopefully find a couple I like
