Monkey Nutrition isn’t a brand that I’ve heard of before but when I was offered some of their Primal 26 Whey Protein Isolate to review and as a daily user of protein powder I thought I’d give it a go! There’s a massive 26g of protein in each scoop (the scoops are 30g as opposed to the standard 25g from MyProtein & The Protein Works). They only come in Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry flavours, which isn’t really a lot when you compare to some competitors but we use Vanilla in our protein breads and other baking. For our day to day shakes we usually go for more exciting flavours.
First of, the packaging – I hate it but my boyfriend thought it was really cool so that says a lot. They’re nailing the male market with their branding! Second of all, the taste is, in my opinion nicer than the MyProtein Vanilla protein powder until it’s over and then there’s a bit of a funny after taste. I’m definitely going to give it a go for baking with though and I’ll let you all know what I think!
