Extreme Nutrition Whey review by Rachael Hayes (DFAC Pro)

When doing any review firstly we need to establish what is the reason for using a product and what are the criteria we want it to meet. It’s only when we’ve done this that we can assess a product against it.

So whey protein powder, what am I looking for ?

Personally, I’m looking for an easy source of about 20gm of good protein, easily utilised, versatile options for mixing into other foodstuffs or easily mixed on its own and a pleasant taste. My main uses are in my in between meals especially if at work and in a meeting and/or when travelling, 

Carbs are usually quite work or travelling friendly but a smelly piece of fish or eggs can ruin the atmosphere at any meeting or in a confined train carriage.

So against my criteria how does extreme whey square up?

  
  
Protein

One scoop of extreme nutrition Whey provides 26.4 per 35gm serving

It also gives 2.02gm of fat and 2.78gm carbs (this is the milk chocolate others may vary). 

This means. Don’t have to worry too much as long as I almost fill the scoop

  
Versatility

Extreme whey mixes well into cereal,  protein cake mixtures (to follow) and on its own.

Mixability

I like the mix ability of this whey you don’t need a blender to make it drinkable it can be blended in a shaker  although in smoothie maker with ice and fruit it’s extra yum, strawberry is really fresh and light whereas milk chocolate is lush and a treat at any time.

  

All in all this product gives me just what I am looking for. I can also mix it with Extreme carbs for my post workout.
