Clean Nutrition Whey Protein has fast become our best selling protein. Let's take a look at why it's so popular.


Macro-nutrient Profile


Clean Nutrition Whey Protein has one of the cleanest macro-nutrient profiles on the market. 1 scoop is approximately 116 Calories with only 2.1g of carbohydrates including 1.5g of sugar. You won’t find a pure whey protein concentrate much cleaner than that. Usually you’ll need to look at a whey protein isolate or whey protein blend to get this level of low carbohydrate, low sugar protein powder. An advanced formula helps Clean Nutrition Whey Protein contain over 78% of protein content.

Protein Source and Ingredients


There are only five ingredients in Clean Nutrition Whey Protein including the flavouring. When they say it’s clean, they mean it.

The protein in Clean Nutrition Whey Protein comes solely from Instantised Whey Protein Concentrate in the form of (97%) Whey Protein from milk. The other ingredients include flavouring, Carrageenan (Natural Thickener), Sweetener (Sucralose) and Emulsifier (Soy Lecithin). Carrageenan is a linear sulfated polysaccharide that is extracted from red edible seaweeds. It has gelling, thickening and stabilizing properties. Sucralose is a zero calorie artificial sweetener that is a lot sweeter than sugar so less can be used. Soy Lecithin is used to improve mixability and prevent the whey powder from clumping.

Taste and Mixability


If you’re looking for a very sweet protein powder then Clean Nutrition Whey Powder probably isn’t the one for you. While milkshake tasting protein shakes taste great they will most likely contain more sugar, carbohydrates and artificial ingredients. If you’re like me and find 90% of the protein powders on the market way too sweet too drink, then you should definitely try this protein powder. The subtle flavours are a welcome change and it is perfect to drink by itself, add to smoothies, oats or baking.

Initially Clean Nutrition started with two flavours, vanilla and chocolate. The latest addition of banana and strawberry have added variety to the product and allows users to switch it up now and again.

You may need to experiment with the amount of water added in each shake. The directions advise 250ml water per serve but some people find that makes the shake too watery. 150ml-200ml seems to taste more pleasant and the powder still mixes completely.
