What makes it Awesome?
Rich, creamy and packed with flavour
No unnecessary ingredients, just whey
Works a treat in cooking as well as in shakes
How do you choose a good whey protein powder? We believe it all comes down to the quality of the dairy used, the filtration process when making it, the taste, and overall versatility of the finished product. But we’d like to start by saying with 100% honesty what whey protein is, because we feel many companies over hype its purpose.
Whey protein is not essential to the diet; it’s not even necessary for people that exercise. Supplement companies will tell you whey protein is vital post-workout, or before a workout, or at any time of the day. Not true. We see whey protein as a great way of adding protein into your diet in a convenient, flexible and cost-effective way. After all, you can get protein from many food sources, such as chicken, eggs, tofu, beans, beef and fish, to name a few. So yes you can use it pre-workout, or post-workout, or as part of a meal, recipe or smoothie, but it’s not essential, it’s just a super handy and cost effective form of protein.
Fill the Gaps in Your Diet with Whey Protein
So, if whey protein is not essential, why would you buy it? Whey protein is that filler. It is for those moments when you are short on time and need a quick breakfast smoothie, or don’t have time to eat after the gym and you want to grab a shake with a banana to tie you over. Or, you’re looking to add protein to cooking like pancakes or porridge to boost your protein intake. Perhaps you like to use it as a snack when you’re on the move and don’t have to think about food. Whey protein is also very cost-effective as a protein source, at only 95p per serving here at Awesome. It’s also why we use whey concentrate over whey isolate, it’s got a more enjoyable and creamy texture and is just as effective at delivering protein to your muscles, despite what companies claim. And it’s cheaper as a raw ingredient, win win.
Having a daily protein intake of 1.5-2g per kg of body weight especially when active is beneficial for satiety, recovery, body composition, health and weight loss. This is why many active people or individuals on a diet often use supplemental protein to boost their protein intake cost-effectively and conveniently.
So, why choose Awesome Whey Protein?
We use the highest quality whey protein we can source, filter it for smoothness and purity, use whey concentrate for versatility and enjoyment, and it tastes AWESOME, and for us, that is the most important thing. Life’s too short for lousy tasting whey protein, try Awesome Whey Protein, we promise you won’t regret it.

Research behind the ingredients
When we reference the research we reference Examine.com, the go to source of understandable scientific research on nutrition, supplementation and health, allowing you to be informed about the ingredients we use and the research behind them.

Whey Protein Concentrate
We use whey protein concentrate as it is the least processed form of whey protein, adds to the taste by allowing a creamier texture, and has research to show it is beneficial at supporting the immune system compared to other whey proteins. Read the research on Whey Protein at Examine.com
Am I safe to consume this multiple times a day?
Yes, whey protein can be taken multiple times per day. We recommend you stick to whole, unprocessed foods as much as possible and so advise you do not rely on Awesome Whey Protein for the majority of your protein intake, but this approach is not directly harmful and may allow for greater flexibility and convenience, and of course it can be cost effective
Am I able to use this while pregnant?
There is no reason to avoid using Awesome Whey Protein to make up some of your protein intake during pregnancy unless your GP or health care professional has said otherwise.
Do you do a mass gain version?
We don’t provide a mass gainer shake and never will. Mass gainers typically cost a lot even though they only consist of whey protein and a large amount of carbohydrate (which is very cheap). This makes them popular with supplement companies as they allow for a large profit margin. As we want to promote honesty and integrity, this goes against our values. With that said we absolutely believe that high calorie shakes are a brilliant tool for weight gain phases and so don’t wish to discourage their use entirely – only the premade ones! Using Awesome Whey Protein to make high calorie smoothies with milk, nut butter, oats, fruit and even ice cream can achieve the same goal with a lot more personalisation and, depending on the ingredients, nutritional value. So if you want a weight gainer shake, mix Awesome Whey Protein with milk, make a smoothie, or eat it with some nuts or other high calorie food.
Is the sweetener sucralose safe?
Currently the full body of evidence for the safety of sucralose indicates that it is perfectly safe to consume. Customers regularly ask why not use stevia? This is because stevia, in our opinion, tastes awful, and we want our products to taste awesome. So we use sucralose over stevia. Some individuals with IBS can get irritation from some sweeteners, so be mindful if this is you. Click the following link to read the most up to date research on sucralose.
Does whey protein have a laxative effect?
Whey protein does not have a laxative effect. If you suffer from G.I distress after consuming this product we recommend speaking to your GP as this could be a sign of lactose intolerance. Otherwise there should be no reason for this effect.
Can this help me lose fat?
This product is high in protein (so it helps promote satiety) and is low calorie. No supplement can cause weight loss on its own, but this product can certainly help you achieve the calorie deficit necessary to reach that goal.
Can I cook with it?
Awesome Whey Protein is perfectly safe for cooking. Neither the protein content or the flavour will be negatively affected.
Do I have to drink it straight after mixing?
Awesome whey protein can be mixed up and then consumed within a few days provided it’s kept in the fridge and re-shaken before consumption. Whey protein is a milk-based product, and so you’ll be VERY aware if it’s gone off! We recommend consumption within 48 hours assuming refrigeration, but ideally, for freshness, enjoy soon after mixing.
Do I use milk or water? How much?
Your use of milk, milk substitute, or water, and the precise amount, is individual. We recommend you stick to 200-400ml of liquid per serving, and pay attention to the additional calories if you opt for something other than water. Milk or a milk substitute will always provide a better richer flavour, whereas water will reduce the calories – the decision is yours! As a final note - when developing our flavours we did it with water, so does it taste awesome with water….yes!
Can I have this if I’m lactose intolerant?
The lactose content of whey protein is very, very low. With less than 3g per serving, Awesome Whey Protein will be tolerated well by most even with lactose intolerance. If you have very sensitive lactose intolerance, however, we recommend you opt for Awesome Vegan Protein instead and avoid the chance of an issue.
Is Awesome Whey Protein vegan friendly?
No, but it is gluten free.
