Lush Protein is renown for having high quality supplements with the purest of ingredients, without the hefty price mark up. A Singapore-based brand that sources their ingredients from the USA, their low fat and low carb whey protein is free of unnecessary additives or preservatives and is the undoubted star of their range.
Marketed as pure, ultra-filtered, cold processed and undenatured whey, it stands a cut above regular offerings in the market due to having 20% more BCAAs than your average protein powder. This is because their whey protein is derived directly from fresh milk, instead of cheese as most whey is. The milk also comes from grass-fed cows, and it is free from hormones and antibiotics.
The higher content of BCAAs is fantastic as it helps boost performance, recovery and muscle growth. You're really getting the most out of your protein powder with this.
Here's all you need to know.
WHAT'S IN IT
Lush Protein Whey Protein is made entirely from whey protein concentrate.
Whey protein concentrate is the more popular form of whey protein due to its cost-effectiveness and excellent muscle-building properties. When whey goes through processing, most of the carbohydrates and fats are removed from the mix, and this also has ramifications on how fast your body is able to digest it. Whey protein concentrate contains 80% proteins, with the rest being minerals, carbs, fat and water.
This whey protein has 99 calories per serving, with 20g of protein, 1.3g of fat, and 1.8g of carbs. It does contain soy lecithin, an emulsifier, so do avoid if you have soy allergies.
FLAVOURS AND TASTE
There are three flavours available: Chocolate Dinosaur, Mango and Vanilla. They go easy on the sugar, so the by-product tastes more like a skimmed milk. It's easy to mix, with little clumps in the final product too.
HOW YOU SHOULD TAKE IT
Take two scoops for one serving, and mix it with water or milk. Shake and enjoy. Alternatively, you can incorporate it into your food or smoothies to increase its protein count.
At $39 for 40 servings, you're getting each serving at less than a dollar. It's incredible value for money, especially when you consider how pure the product is. You're also getting more BCAAs than an average whey protein, making it more worth it than purchasing both a BCAA supplement and a whey protein.
WHO SHOULD TAKE IT
Lush Protein Whey Protein is a fantastic entry-level supplement for those looking to gain muscle. This is great if you're just getting started with supplements and want to expand your repertoire without committing to a BCAA supplement. If you want to consume whey that's made with purer ingredients, then this is the one for you.
