Good protein, or one more to skip?
It's been a while since we posted a review of a supplement here. A long time, even.
But here's the return and with a protein, the Bulk Pure Whey Protein.
First of all, here's a note before starting the analysis itself.
If notes aren't your thing, you can always skip to the section that interests you.
We have a small partnership with the Bulk brand.
When you place an order on the site by following a our linkwe earn a small percentage. *
It's a brand that we appreciate, and that recently, when the opportunity arose, we took advantage of it.
?To work? with brands that we consider to be of good quality makes everything easier, and we are selective in this aspect.
However, as we have already mentioned several times, impartiality is our goal in every analysis we do.
With or without partnership.
This is no exception, and if you have any feedback to give, the comments area is always available.
In short, we have a partnership with the brand that sells the product that we are now going to analyze.
* At no cost to you.
As many brands do, the Bulk Pure Whey Protein It is sold with and without flavor.
The ingredients change very slightly, as does the nutritional value.
In the unflavored version, this protein is composed of just two ingredients, Whey Protein Concentrate and Sunflower Lecithin.
If you've read any of our reviews, you know that this is, in our opinion, positive.
Protein with no useless additions and just the inclusion of sunflower lecithin, an emulsifier.
This doesn't tell the whole story, or we'd leave it at that, but the ingredients used point to a good Whey Concentrate supplement.
In the flavored versions, the usual ingredients are used.
In addition to Whey Concentrate and sunflower lecithin, flavorings, colorings, sweeteners and thickeners are also present.
With or without flavor?
The price is the same, with a slight nutritional advantage for the unflavored version and a big flavor advantage for the rest.
Ingredients presented, it's time for the valuable nutritional table.
The difference is not much, but we chose to organize it by flavorless version, vanilla and chocolate.
Chocolate is a (very) general rule the flavor that always has the worst nutritional values, regardless of the brand.
Vanilla usually represents a middle ground.
And then we have the tasteless one.
In terms of protein, the chocolate version has 5g less than the unflavored Bulk Pure Whey Protein, and 8g more carbohydrates.
It wins, however, in fats, where it has 3g less. 2-1.
In terms of protein, vanilla is close to tasteless without flavor, with a little more carbs but less fat.
The maximum amount of protein you can find in the Bulk Pure Whey Protein line is 77g as you can see in the table.
Bottom line, unless all your protein comes from shakes, and it's good that it isn't, these differences won't have any impact on your results.

|Amino Acids Profile|
It has already become a habit.
How much glycine does protein have?
Although in this case, according to the ingredients, it was just habit and not logic.
It's a perfectly normal aminogram of a protein with 77% protein content, and it doesn't use tricks like many brands on the market.
The total BCAA's per 100g of Bulk Pure Whey Protein is 17.67%.
It's good? It's bad?
We're not going to get into big comparisons for now, because as we've already mentioned, we have to update the reviews section of the site.
However, it is within the standards of this type of protein.
And so we come to probably the most complicated area of analysis.
Because the base prices are practically never used, and to be used, it changes the evaluation of this supplement a lot.
Whether it's a promotion or a promo code, the value always turns out to be (significantly) lower than supposed.
We created two tables to represent this, one with the base value and another with the promotion in effect at the moment (45% discount).
That base value for the 5kg format isn't very nice in terms of payout, but as you can see, it's currently at 54.98? without using any code.
|Cost per dose/30g||0.90?||0.78?||0.68?||0.60?|
|Cost / 100g protein||3.89?||3.37?||2.96?||2.60?|
|Cost Per Serving||0.49?||0.43?||0.38?||0.33?|
|Cost / 100g protein||2.13?||1.85?||1.62?||1.43?|
The cost per 100g of protein represents what you pay not for 100g of product, but for 100g of pure protein.
It is a very effective way of checking the cost of a product against the cost per dose.
In this case, you need 129.87g of product to get 100g of protein.
Looking at the two values, the with and without promotion, it seems that we are analyzing two different products.
It's not the case.
But the assessment is the same.
One variant of Bulk Pure Whey Protein is a good choice, the other is not.
The one that cost 56.99? per 2.5kg is a choice that leaves something to be desired due to the price.
What is left at 31.33? for the same amount is another story.
That is, we have two evaluations for the same protein.
Where to buy?
Find Bulk Pure Whey Protein available here.
If you have never used Bulk before, use this link and you are entitled to 35% discount on your entire order.
Bulk Pure Whey Protein is a protein in the range of Impact Whey by Myprotein and Real Whey by Prozis.
Simple and quality.
No unnecessary additions and with the protein you're looking for.
However, much like Impact Whey mainly, but also Real Whey, it's a choice that depends on whether you catch them on sale? or not.
The base price is high.
The good news is that promotions are extremely regular.
In short, if you find Bulk Pure Whey Protein on sale, it is most likely a good buy (it also depends on the promotion, obviously).
In the case of the base price, as you may have already noticed, it is not a great choice.
The quality is there, it's just a question of what the price is for that quality.
