Bulk Powders, as their name suggests, provide sports supplements at heavily discounted prices.
They’ve been around since 2005, but underwent a huge rebrand at the beginning of 2013.
Seemingly, this was a move to differentiate themselves from their competitors, as they ditched their previous blue and white colour scheme (Myprotein) for a sleek lime/bogey green which has a more commercial feel.
The new branding/website looks great, the products look great, so I decided to give them a try.
First up, their topselling Pure Whey Protein.
Pure Whey Protein is a whey protein concentrate which has been ‘instantised’ (whatever that means) for easy mixing.
Its nutritional content is similar to many of the other brands on the market which we’ve reviewed, such as Impact Whey Protein from Myprotein and Whey Protein 80 from The Protein Works.
The unflavoured option, per serving, contains 24.6g of protein (that’s about 82% protein content) and 1.8g of carbs.
This profile, along with glutamine, branched chain amino acids, and low fat content, makes it the ideal supplement to support lean muscle growth and aid recovery.
If you’re not interested in taste, or have a palette like an industrial dustbin, opt for the unflavoured version.
It has a higher protein content and lower carbs – but it does taste like dog semen.
I also tried the banana flavour (in my experience you can rarely go wrong with either banana or chocolate), which was surprisingly tasty for a ‘bargain basement’ powder.
It certainly didn’t taste like a GCSE science experiment gone wrong, which is something I can’t say for some of the other brands I have tried in the past.
Plus, the powder mixes very well indeed.
With some brands, mixing with a shaker can feel like you’re wanking off a small tree, but this supplement mixed quickly and easily, with no lumps or frothy bits in sight.
Bulk Powder’s Pure Whey Protein (unflavoured) comes in at £46.89 for 5kg.
Although the website claims this is the cheapest priced whey concentrate in Europe, it is (at the time of writing) exactly the same price as Impact Whey Protein from Myprotein.
But don’t get me wrong – this is still fantastic value-for-money!
And if you spend over £49, next day delivery is free.
Although Bulk Powder’s Pure Whey Protein doesn’t bring anything new to the table, it’s still a solid supplement which is well worth giving a try.
I can’t fault it on quality, taste, texture or price.
Highly recommended if you’re looking for cheap, good quality whey protein.

Humorous review, thanks
All due respect, but saying the unflavoured version tastes like dog semen and then going for taking the banana is quite a way of profiling yourself, wouldn’t you say?
We’re bodybuilders… gobbling knobs and wanking off dogs is par for the course… right?
Very helpful, and wet myself with laughter at the shaker joke.
Cheers Mark, glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks for the great review.
I usually buy USN’s supps but am going to try Bulk Powder’s Pure Whey Protein and see if it tastes OK.
Would definitely recommend Bulk Powders – great products, great ethos, great prices.
I have a very weak palate and can’t deal with textured drinks.
I was looking at buying the banana one.
Is that a smooth drink or gritty like some others?
Perfectly smooth in my experience.
The best tasting protein powder that I have ever had.
I could seriously guzzle litres of this stuff a day it tastes so great!
Just so others are aware, it’s about 1.5 scoops to get the 30g.
200ml of water + 30g scoop can be knocked back in 20 seconds so very very easy to get a huge protein boost from this.
Mixing in a shaker mixes very well, you don’t get bitty clunks or anything with just a regular shaker.
Have had two bags of this and about to order a third now.
Would recommend to anyone and Felipe Franco Bodybuilder also used this supplement that’s why I try this supplement.

That physique was certainly not built with ‘Bulk Powders Pure Whey Protein’…
