Good protein, or just another one to leave out?
It's been a while since we published a review of a supplement here. A long time, even.
But the return is here and with a protein, Bulk Pure Whey Protein.
First of all, we leave a note here 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 placing an order on the website following a our link, we earn a small percentage. *
It's a brand that we appreciate, and when the opportunity arose recently, 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 objective in all the analyzes we carry out.
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 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 made up of just two ingredients, Concentrated Whey Protein and Sunflower Lecithin.
If you've read any of our reviews, you know that this is, in our opinion, positive.
Protein without useless additions and only the inclusion of sunflower lecithin, an emulsifier.
This doesn't tell the whole story, or we would stop there, but the ingredients used point to a good Concentrated Whey supplement.
In flavored versions, the usual ingredients are used.
In addition to Concentrated Whey 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 large flavor advantage for the others.
Ingredients presented, it's time for the valuable nutritional table.
The difference isn't much, but we chose to organize it by flavorless, vanilla and chocolate versions.
Chocolate is the (very) general flavor that always has the worst nutritional values, regardless of the brand.
Vanilla usually represents a middle ground.
And then we have the flavorless 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.
Vanilla comes close in terms of protein to flavorless vanilla, with a little more carbohydrates, but less fat.
The maximum protein you can find in the Bulk Pure Whey Protein line is 77g, as you can see in the table.
Basically, unless all your protein comes from shakes, and that's probably not the case, these differences won't have any impact on your results.

|Amino acid profile
It has already become a habit.
How much glycine does the protein contain?
Although in this case, according to the ingredients, it was just habit and not logic.
It is a perfectly normal aminogram, of a protein with 77% protein content, and which does not use tricks like many brands on the market.
The total number of BCAAs per 100g of Bulk Pure Whey Protein is 17.67%.
It is good? It's bad?
We're not going to get into big comparisons right now, because as we already mentioned, we have to update the analysis section of the site.
However, it is within the standards for this type of protein.
And so we arrive at probably the most complicated area of the analysis.
Because base prices are practically never used, and if they are used, they significantly change the evaluation of this supplement.
Whether it's a promotion or a promotional code, the value always ends up being (significantly) lower than expected.
We created two tables to represent this, one with the base value and the other with the promotion in force at the moment (45% discount).
That base value for the 5kg format is not very pleasant when paying, but as you can see, it is currently priced at 54.98? without using any code.
|Cost per dose/30g
|Cost per dose
The cost for each 100g of protein represents what you pay not for 100g of product, but for 100g of pure protein.
It is a very effective way to check the cost of a product compared to the cost per dose.
In this case, you need 129.87g of product to obtain 100g of protein.
Looking at the two values, 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 costs 56.99? for 2.5kg it is a choice that leaves something to be desired due to the price.
What does 31.33 mean? for the same amount is another story.
In other words, we have two evaluations for the same protein.
Where to buy?
You can find Bulk Pure Whey Protein available here.
If you have never used Bulk, use this link and you are entitled to a 35% discount on your entire order.
Bulk Pure Whey Protein is a protein in the line of Impact Whey from Myprotein and Real Whey from Prozis.
Simple and quality.
Without unnecessary additions and with the protein you are looking for.
However, much like mainly Impact Whey, but also Real Whey, it is 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 the Bulk Pure Whey Protein on sale, it is most likely a good buy (it also depends on the promotion, obviously).
As for the base price, as you may have already noticed, it's not a big choice.
The quality is there, it is just a question of what the price is for that quality.
