Protein Works Taste Test – Whey Protein 80 CHOCOLATE SILK

Protein Works Taste Test – Whey Protein 80 CHOCOLATE SILK


hi guys welcome to another taste test video this is where I try out different protein products and try and give you a clearer understanding as to what the product actually tastes like to save you spending money on something that you might not like. So, today I’m trying out The Protein Works – Whey Protein 80 Concentrate, now this is a low carb low fat as expected and high protein shake each serving I believe gives you 20.6 grams of protein which is actually really good and I’m going to try it out with both water and milk so… Here goes… On the front of the packet obviously you got whey protein concentrate here, okay, gluten free, wheat free, vegetarian, if that’s something that you need to look out for 20.6 grams of protein 1.6 grams of carbs and 101 calories per serving okay so on the back it says in the directions we recommend three to five servings per day depending on upon your own individual needs, exactly, so if your numbers require you to take amount of protein or those sorts of numbers of protein then by all means do it but if you’re taking protein and you don’t know your numbers I mean when I say numbers I mean how much protein you need to be aiming for per day then you don’t need to be buying protein you need to get your numbers right before you start drinking protein otherwise buying a protein powder may be a waste of money if you’re getting too much protein or if you’re getting not enough protein you’re not gonna see results in the way that you want to so make sure that you do a little research or you speak to a trainer or whatever and you know exactly how much protein you’re getting. So the ingredients seem pretty simple you’ve got whey protein concentrate which comes from milk natural flavoring fat reduce cocoa powder sweetener and the emulsifier which is soy lecithin so I take two scoops per protein serving now that might not be what you do but me personally, I take two scoops, but on the directions here it says to take one scoop so I’m gonna go by their instructions and I’m going to take one scoop and I’m gonna try it with water first and then milk after. Most protein companies suggest water or milk but if you’re making a big shake and you’re you’re mixing it with juice so you’re mixing it with almond milk or any other milk it’s fine I mean as long as it tastes how you like it it’s fine I mean, you can use milk but if you use milk or juice just bear in mind that it’s very likely that you’ll have more sugar in it so keep an eye on your carbs if you’re trying not to aim for too many carbs or whatever just make sure you know what’s in the liquid that your you’re drinking your protein shake with because it’s very easy to to drink your calories without even knowing they say 150 to 225 ml of water, ok one large scoop I’m going to shake it for 15 seconds.. Just going to test if it’s got any clumps in it that is very smooth but if you can see that there’s literally no clumps in that it’s very smooth, taste it okay goes down very smooth what does it taste like? I should have mentioned before this is the CHOCOLATE SILK flavour it tastes like hot chocolate like cold hot chocolate that’s not been sweetened chocolate drinking powder that’s been really watered-down there’s no real sort of highs of sugar in there it doesn’t really taste like a dessert you could drink that and then five minutes after you wouldn’t know that you’ve drank chocolate whey protein it doesn’t have much of an aftertaste it’s really quite neutral it’s not very distinct at all and it doesn’t give you a kick in the face. It’s clear that they’ve not tried to do too much with the taste they’re not putting loads of ingredients to try and mask or try and add anything that seems a bit unnatural that tasted erm, that tasted fine there’s no taste of chocolate in my mouth it’s all gone there’s no aftertaste milk always changes the perspective because milk is a lot thicker and milk has a lot more ingredients than of course water, so who knows what milk will taste like so let’s go again 225 ml of liquid and this is semi skimmed milk zero lactose if that makes any difference I’m a Lactofree lactose intolerant person so yeah I can’t drink normal milk let me know if you if you’ve tried this one if this is something you swear by because I’m always interested to know what people think of this protein. Let’s go for a generous scoop generous enough and yeah I’m using one of these it does the same job as a steel ball by mixing up whatever is in the jug without making all the obvious racket filled up with it too much but that seems very not very clumpy at all there are literally no clumps in that that tastes more like and hot chocolate and I really like that because it’s very smooth now it tastes nice, it’s a lot better with milk the flavor is chocolate silk and you can really… If you asked me what chocolate silk tastes like I would say that is the taste it sort of reminds me of them Galaxy chocolate like the smoothness it’s really smooth with milk with water you don’t you don’t feel it as much with water it just feels like watered-down hot chocolate but with milk it tastes a lot more a lot richer there’s still no aftertaste but with milk I would say it tastes a lot better and like I said I’m very impressed that the fact that there’s no clumps in them 15 seconds of shaking it there’s no clumps in there in my view that’s a really good quality of protein powder no clumps no thickness no medicine taste tastes really nice very smooth with milk and with water and the taste is really nice the silkiness the silkiness is more taste-able when you use it with milk and the price is decent as well one kg which is this bad this size bag I paid 17 or like 18 pounds for a bag which is I think is decent one thing that the protein works do is that they offer a 500 gram bag for I think £10 £10 or £11 pounds so if you’re not looking to make a huge commitment into buying a big 2 kilogram or one kilogram bag you can actually go for a smaller bag so if it does taste horrible you’re not stuck with it for weeks and weeks. So to sum up I really like this protein powder I normally take two scoops but with this I’ve taken one scoop and the taste was really good nothing too much nothing too heavy no real aftertaste that would make me lose my appetite or feel bloated so that I don’t want to eat again I really feel like I could drink this easily 3 times 3 4 or 5 times a day IF I needed to if my numbers were suited to that amount of protein and it tastes great with milk and water so yeah that was my review of The Protein Works Whey Protein 80 Concentrate if you feel I’ve left something out please let me know in the comments below if I helped you out please let me know also by dropping a like and leaving a comment so thank you for watching and I’ll see you in the next one peace
