When it comes to bulk whey protein, Impact Whey Protein's exceptional value-for-money puts it way, way ahead of the competition. A no-brainer if you're looking for cheap, no-frills protein which gets the job done. In my opinion, the best whey protein on the market.

I discovered Impact Whey Protein six years ago as a penniless student, and I’ve never looked at another brand of whey protein since.

Quite simply, if you want decent quality protein for an exceptional price, then this product is an absolute belter.

Product overview

Impact Whey Protein is a protein powder comprising premium quality whey protein concentrate (80% protein).

Whey is a fast-digesting form of protein, which makes it an ideal supplement for post and pre-workout meals.

Obviously, you’re best off liquidising it with milk or water for convenience, but if you’re feeling especially audacious, why not snort it in lines à la Frank Yang?

Impact Whey delivers 20g of protein per serving, boasts a solid blend of amino acids (to aid muscle recovery), and is available in bags of 1kg, 2.5kg and 5kg.

Taste and texture

Impact-Whey-Protein-180x300 (1)Impact Whey Protein comes in 19 different flavours, some of which are truly bizzare.

Seriously, who the ruddy hell is ordering Jam Roly Poly or Humbug flavoured protein?

If you are, and you aren’t mentally unstable, please let us know in the comments section below!

It should be pointed out that these flavours do not taste as good as some of the other whey protein brands, such as Optimum Nutrition’s Gold Standard Whey, but I don’t personally consider taste to be a dealbreaker.

(Read my Hurricane XS review for an explanation as to why.)

I usually opt for the chocolate flavour whey and mix it with milk, banana and peanut butter for a great-tasting homemade protein shake.

Also, if you’re really strapped for cash, Impact Whey Protein is also available ‘unflavoured’.

But beware, taken on its own, the unflavoured powder tastes like flour and soot and looks likes watered-down man milk.

When it comes to mixability, this powder mixes as well as any other protein supplement that I have tried.

Value for money

Coming in at £47 for 5kg – that’s just 0.9p per gram – Impact Whey Protein is simply miles ahead of the competition when it comes to value for money.

There is also the option to save some more money by buying multiple bags, but the 5kg bag lasts a long, long time, and if you aren’t too keen on the flavour, then, you’ll be stuck with it, like that sort from the Nags Head Friday Night Disco that simply won’t flush.

Note: If you’re still buying your protein from the high street or from big name brands, what the frig are you doing? Don’t be a knobhead, save yourself some cash!


Despite what the glossy ads in men’s magazines may have us believe, whey protein is not a magic formula which will give you arms the size of an elephant’s erection overnight.

However, when used to complement a clean diet and a strict workout regime, it can be devastatingly effective.

Just don’t expect to get results if you’re eating like a cunt and skipping training sessions.

Common sense, really!
