The Protein Works Whey Protein 80 – Review

Review of The Protein Works Whey Protein 80 Supplement

The Protein Works is a recent brand from the UK, which is starting to stand out more and more with interesting products, such as Whey Protein 80.

This supplement, as the name implies, is a whey protein supplement, in its concentrated form.

It is available in four different sizes, they are: 500g, 1000g, 2000g and 4000g.

In addition, it is available in many flavors, but we will bet on the flavorless version to make this analysis.


The ingredients of this supplement are few, more specifically three, they are:

  • Concentrated whey protein
  • Aminogen
  • Soy lecithin

Concentrated whey protein you already know what it is, and if you don't, go through our guide here.

As for Aminogen, it is a digestive enzyme that theoretically will help in the digestion of protein.

We say theoretically because the brand does not mention the amount of Aminogen used in the formula, so we do not know if it is an effective dose or not.

As for soy lecithin, it is an emulsifier.

Nutritional value

These are the values presented by the brand on its official website.



In the first column we find the values for a dose / scoop, which is 25 grams, and in the second, the typical values for each 100g of product.

This supplement has a protein content of 82.4%, a very good value for concentrated whey, and superior to many of the protein supplements that we have already analyzed.

With this concentration, we have 20.6g of protein for each shake, which after training, comes in handy!

As for the values of carbohydrates and fats, they are within the normal range for a good concentrated whey supplement.



This is the aminogram provided by the brand, and presents the values of amino acids in percentage per 100g of protein.

As the product does not contain 100% of protein but 82.4%, we took the calculator and calculated the amount of BCAA's per 100g of product.

The result?

18.86g of BCAA's per 100g of Whey Protein 80 by TPW.

Undoubtedly a very good value!

Let's compare it to two supplements in the same category: Impact Whey and Gold Standard, by Myprotein and Optimum Nutrition respectively.

Whey Protein 80Impact WheyGold Standard
Total Protein82.4g82g81.6g


This supplement is equivalent to both Impact Whey such as Gold Standard, and if you read the analyzes we did for each of them, you know that these are two proteins of excellent quality!

So, in terms of quality, this is clearly a very good supplement.







Cost Per Serving

0.37 ?

0.32 ?

Total cost


51.19 ?


These are the prices for Whey Protein 80 on The Protein Works website, and looking at the last table, we see that a shake of this supplement costs only 0.32?, that is, it is cheap!

Obviously, we are going to place these prices next to the same proteins that we used to assess the quality of this product.

Whey Protein 80 2kgImpact Whey 2.5kgGold Standard 2,27kg
Cost Per Serving0.37 ?0.31 ?0.75 ?
Total cost30.07?30.89 ?58.00?


The low cost of this supplement stands out quite compared to the Gold Standard by Optimum Nutrition, however, compared to Myprotein Impact Whey, is a little behind, since the total cost is practically the same, but with less 500g of product, which is reflected in the cost per dose.

However, it still has a very appealing price.

Whey Protein 80 by The Protein Works is a very interesting supplement, with a very good protein content for a concentrated whey (82.4%), with an impressive amount of BCAA's and a price that will make anyone who is used to paying suspicious 50? to 60? by protein supplements.

Lose a little to the Myprotein Impact Whey in the price as you can see in the review, but wins most of the supplements on the market, as we can see comparing with the Gold Standard by Optimum Nutrition.

In short, after the Impact Whey it is probably the second best choice in terms of price / quality for those looking for a quality concentrated whey supplement.

  1. Good,
    The article about the product is quite interesting.
    How is the value of 18.86g of BCAA's calculated per 100g?
    Thanks and regards

      1. Good,
        Thank you very much for responding.
        I would like to take the opportunity to ask if there is any article of yours that makes an enlightening approach to what fat-types are (saturated, cholesterol, etc...) and other standard information that are on the labels of whey packaging. For example, what kind of fats or cholesterol are we talking about (good or bad) or what influence this can have on practitioners and consumers.
        I ask this question, since many products sold have some concentrations of trans and other saturated fats that experts say should be avoided.
        Grateful for the help and regards.
        André S.

        1. We don't have any article that goes into this topic in depth, but the only fat that you should really avoid as it has no useful role in the body is trans :)
