What Type of Protein is For You?

Which protein is best for me? Bulk Nutrients advice to finding the right protein for you.

What Type Of Protein Supplements Are There?

It can be overwhelming to work out what type of protein is for you, depending on your health and fitness goals and nutritional needs.

  • Protein Water: A protein water can be the perfect type of protein for someone looking to supplement their diet throughout the day. With the benefits of protein, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), electrolytes and more, a protein water can be used pre, during and after training.
  • Whey Proteins: Whey protein is derived from milk and is a complete protein source, containing all nine essential amino acids your body needs to function properly.
  • Plant based Protein: A plant based protein is a perfect option for someone looking to supplement their protein intake, that is unable to use a whey based product due to dietary restrictions of preferences.
  • Collagen based Protein: Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, concentrated in bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. Collagen peptides, like our HCP, are a popular supplement to support healthy joints, hair and nails.
Bulk Nutrients new Protein Water in Pink Lemonade, Pineapple and Orange

Why Consider a Protein Water?

When mixed with liquid, a protein water powder makes an attractive and refreshing drink option, particularly as we head into the summer months.

Protein waters have become more popular in recent years as part of a rise in lifestyle beverages.

Many protein waters across Australia have different added benefits.

We've just launched our new Protein Water! And we think it's pretty great. It's packed with protein from Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides and Whey Protein Isolate, complimented with BCAAs and Electrolytes it's a perfect addition to your daily routine.

We've launched it in three delicious lightweight flavours - Pink Lemonade, Orange and Pineapple.

A protein water can be the perfect pick to keep alongside you at work, makes a great grab and go option for weekends, and can make a tasty treat during a workout, to keep you fuelled for longer!

If you're looking for a vegan option, Future Whey is the way to go! A 25 gram serve delivers you 22 grams of rapidly absorbed protein from essential amino acids - it can be used during training where it can replace BCAAs, or as a post-training protein source replacing whey.

What Type Of Whey Protein Is The Right Whey?

Derived from milk, different types of whey protein offer different benefits to consumers, depending on what they want.

“I want the protein that’s the best value for money"

With the cost of living pressures facing everyone currently, we understand and have you covered. For the best high quality protein per dollar, we recommend our Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC). Each 30 gram serve delivers 23 grams of protein, and less than 2 grams of gats and carbs. It comes in several delicious flavours and works perfectly post-workout or as a protein boost in smoothies or cooking.

“I want a protein that’s good for me, but I’m conscious of carbs and fats”

Say no more, and look for Whey Protein Isolate (WPI). It’s more refined than WPC, and has lower lactose, carbohydrate and fat content, while also carrying a higher protein content.

“I want a protein to gain size and grow muscle”

Look no further than Muscle Food 101! This product has been designed for those looking to put on some serious size by building real muscle. MF101 offers high-quality whey and carbohydrates and a 2-1 ratio for ultimate muscle gains and recovery, as well as pure MCTs to assist with energy levels and performance. In combination with weight training and a diet full of high-quality protein, healthy fats and complex carbs, you’ll see some serious gains!

“I want a protein to help me slim down and burn fat”

If you’re looking to drop body fat, Thermowhey is where it’s at. Our thermogenic blend combines two types of protein, fast acting and pure Whey Protein Isolate and slow release Micellar Casein, with nine key ingredients to help induce fullness, boost metabolism and build lean muscle mass. It also contains thermogenic ingredients such as green tea extract, sesamin and alpha lipoic acid to aid in fat loss. The combination helps you stay fuller for longer, so you don’t feel the need to snack shortly after.

“I want a delicious protein I can use in anything”

If you’re after something creamy, delicious and comparable to a milkshake, that’s great on its own or used in smoothies and baking, Protein Matrix+ (PM+) is your cupboard staple! PM+ combines WPI, WPC and Micellar Casein to create a protein shake that tastes seriously good, as well as a special lactase enzyme to support digestion. This allows people who can’t tolerate lactose or regular whey to use PM+ worry free!

If you’re someone who likes their protein as a simple scoop with a shake of water, blended with milk and fruit and made into a smoothie, or baked into a sweet treat, a whey protein product could be for you!

Protein Scoop

Is Plant Based Protein Your Best Option?

While Protein Matrix+ is a great option for people with lactose intolerance, it might not be for everyone – and that’s where plant based proteins come in to play!

Plant proteins come from various sources, including peas, rice, and soy, as well blends like our Earth Protein.

A lot of the time, discovering the best plant protein comes down to your personal preference – so if there’s one you’re interested in trying before you buy, make sure to request a sample!

Again, it’s up to personal preference how you consume your protein – in a shaker with water, or blended into a recipe unique to you!

Or Is Collagen Based Protein Your Best Pick?

Hydrolysed collagen, unlike a whey protein, doesn’t contain the full spectrum of amino acids and dissolves completely in water.

It’s a light-tasting, bovine protein that’s easily digested and dairy free.

If you’re wanting to supplement your protein intake, and are wanting to support the growth of your hair, skin and nails, as well as support cartilage and muscle, HCP might be for you. Our Cold Brew Coffee flavour makes a great pick-me-up, without the caffeine jitters!

What’s The Best Type Of Protein?

That, unfortunately, is completely up to you and your goals and lifestyle.

Whether you’re looking for something to sip throughout the day to up your protein intake like a protein water, require a plant-based protein due to dietary restrictions, or are trying to work out what whey protein might work for you, here at Bulk Nutrients we have you covered!
