Myprotein Impact Diet Whey
Cheap, cheerful and effective, whey protein is the first item on most workout shopping lists. Today we’re looking at Impact Diet Whey from Myprotein, a company that built their name on affordable protein supplements.
While Impact Diet Whey is pitched as a low-cal version of their budget protein, the calorie difference isn’t huge (412 kcal per 100g versus 365 kcal per 100g). Then again, every little helps when you’re cutting.
Protein Blend (Whey Protein Concentrate, Milk Protein Concentrate), Ground Oats, Whole Psyllium Husks, Flaxseed Powder, L Glutamine, Acetyl L Carnitine, Green Tea Extract, Vitamin C, Emulsifier, Flavouring, Colour, Sweetener.
I picked up a small bag of Latte flavoured Impact Diet Whey and that was definitely my first mistake. It wasn’t so much coffee as bitter milk.
If you go decide to pick up a pouch of your own, for the love of God don’t pick Latte!
The powder mixed with milk about as well as I’ve come to expect from budget whey and didn’t cause any digestion havoc like some crappy (pun intended) competitors.
Where Impact Diet Whey and its full fat brother really excel, however, is in the value. If you buy in bulk, you can pick up this whey for £13.33 per kilo, which is really good for a low-cal whey variant.
There’s probably bottles of fancy French sparkling water that cost more than that!
A 3kg pouch will set you back £39.99, which works out at £13.33 per kilo. While that’s pretty cheap, Myprotein run regular sales, which brings the price down to silly levels.
At the time of writing, the same 3kg pouch is discounted from £39.99 to to £33.99. Then they have an Easter Sale, which snips another 15 percent off your basket price.
All in, you’re looking at £28.89 for 3kg of decent whey. That’s £9.63 per kilo!
If you’re looking for a new low-cal whey product to try out, Impact Diet Whey is definitely worth a punt.
For its value for money alone, it’s a good choice but when you add in some reasonably tasty flavours (again, stay away from latte!) and a decent protein content, it’s a really easy decision to make!
