Hi guys! Today we are giving our review on USN 100% Premium Whey Protein.
We decided to get a couple of 2.28Kg tubs after reading good reviews about it ourselves. And it’s yet to disappoint! This time around we opted for the vanilla and chocolate flavours.
USN 100% Premium Whey Protein Nutritional Information
Before kicking off the review, here’s a run down of the important nutritional information.
Whey Protein is one of the highest biological valued protein there is. The USN 100% Premium Whey Protein provides the purest form of this single protein substrate.
The 100% Premium Whey has added Tolerase. If you haven’t heard of it before, Tolerase has shown to improve lactose digestion in individuals who have difficulty with that. So if you are lactose intolerant, then this product is suitable for you.
And this protein now features a revolutionary MyoMatrix blend. Which is a whey protein isolate and concentrate blend.
Recommended use is a heaped scoop (34g) and this will give you 24g of good quality protein. The tub itself comes with a scoop, so no need to worry there.
There are only 4g of carbs per scoop. So it’s perfect for putting on lean muscle and for those of you worried about carb intake.
If you have any allergies, then unfortunately USN Premium Whey Protein is not gluten free. And it may contain traces of egg. So if you’re a vegetarian you may want to look elsewhere.
USN 100% Premium Whey Protein (The Review)
Anyway, lets get on with the best part! The review of what the actual product is like!
If you are after quality then look no further than USN products in general. We know they are up there with the best.
It’s possible that they might even be the best. But that sometimes comes at a cost…
The biggest flaw with USN is that unless your getting an offer, its not the cheapest protein on the market. So if you’re watching those pennies then it’s likely be avoiding USN unless there is an offer on!
Never fear though. If you stay in touch with our Twitter @protein_hunter for USN offers as well as on our website, you’ll never miss a deal.
Having said that, the USN 100% Premium Whey Protein is a great tasting, smooth protein. And it doesn’t disappoint. Packing 24g of quality protein in one scoop is pretty decent to say the least.
You can tell that it’s a premium product, as there is no sandy taste like with some other proteins on the market. With a lot of other whey protein products we find that sometimes the flavour hardly exists. Even though they are meant to be flavoured. This is the quality you are paying for with USN as we mentioned earlier. Cheaper powders don’t provide that and can leave a poor taste in your mouth. Or taste of nothing at all.
The USN powder itself mixes well. Whether that be in a blender or with a shaker cup. It mixes well with both milk and water, leaving no lumps after a thorough shake or blend. So there’s plenty of choice when you’re mixing up a shake.
The fact that it mixes well with a shaker cup is perfect for those moments you’re on the go. And all those times you don’t have access to a blender.
But if you do have access to a blender, we find mixing some peanut butter goes down well. Especially with the vanilla flavour, giving it an extra nice taste. Adding the peanut butter is a sure fire way to bump up those calories if you’re on a bulk!
USN Premium Whey doesn’t give you any ‘bloated’ feelings. Other protein powders we have tried have done in the past. It mixes well with porridge oats and is also a great addition to homemade protein bars and pancakes. It has a intense, smooth yet thick and creamy texture, setting it apart from its rivals.
As far as whey protein goes, USN 100% Premium Whey Protein is exactly what it says on the tub. For us, it’s definitely a must buy. And is a brand we will be coming back to time and time again.
We mentioned earlier about USN products being a little ‘pricey’. And that’s true for the most part. But this certain product is not actually expensive at all in comparison to other rivals. If you’re in the UK, you can get 2.28Kg tub with the flavour of your choice for £23.99 for a limited time only. Otherwise it is £29.99. Bargain! They ship worldwide, but you can also check out Amazon in the US.
We’d definitely recommend USN 100% Premium Whey. Whether you are looking to cut or bulk. Or simply maintain. For us, it’s been hard to find a better tasting protein than this.
