Summary:

When it comes to bulk whey protein, Impact Whey'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 while trying to make gains 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, this supplement is an absolute belter.

Product overview

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

For any noobs out there (see our beginner’s guide to supplements), whey is a fast-digesting form of protein, which makes it the ideal supplement for post and pre-workout meals.

Pro tip: obviously, you’re best off liquidising whey protein 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 Protein is available flavoured or unflavoured in bags 1kg, 2.5kg and 5kg.

Nutritionals

Per 25g serving (one scoop), the nutritonal info (unflavoured) is as follows:

Calories 103kcal
Protein 21g
Carbs (of which sugar) 1g (1g)
Fat (of which saturates) 1.9g (1.3g)
Salt 0.13g

 
Being high in protein and super low in carbs and calories makes Impact Whey Protein the ideal supplement for those looking to build and maintain a lean, muscular physique.

Impact Whey also provides 3.6g of glutamine and 4.5g of BCAAs per serving, which, quite frankly, will contribute absolutely f-all.

Taste and texture

Impact Whey Protein is currently available 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 haven’t just escaped from Broadmoor, 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 or BSN Sytha-6, but I don’t necessarily 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, honey and a huge dollop of Myprotein’s organic peanut butter for a delicious, nutritionally-charged 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

At the time of writing, Impact Whey comes in at £47 for 5kg – that’s just 0.9p per gram – putting it 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 Nag’s 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!

Effectiveness

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 potent in yielding massive gains.

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

Common sense, really!

Verdict

When it comes to bulk whey protein, this product’s exceptional value-for-money puts it way, way ahead of the competition, making it, in my opinion, the best whey protein on the market.

Impact Whey is a no-brainer if you’re looking for cheap, no-frills protein which gets the job done.

The only downside with this product is that there is no scoop provided, but, for what you pay, this is only a minor quibble.
