Like an early 2000’s beef between two New York rappers, the ex-directors and founding father of Myprotein have been slogging it out to gain supremacy in the value protein market.
The latest manifestation of this ‘battle’ comes from Myprotein founder, fitness nut and all round entrepreneur Oliver Cookson, in the shape of Go Nutrition.
When this request for a review fell into the Gymtalk inbox we couldn’t have been more excited.
Cookson’s first company revolutionised the protein market in the UK so we couldn’t wait to see what Go Nutrition had in store.
Go Whey Protein 80, according to Go Nutrition, is an “ultra premium quality 80% undenatured whey protein concentrate providing an unrivalled combination of taste, value and results”.
It boasts over 19.5g of whey protein per 25g serving and delivers a shit hot amino acid profile.
In short, this is everything you could need to grow lean muscle and support recovery.
Despite the quality of the ingredients, Go Nutrition are really pushing this product, slashing prices to make Go Whey Protein 80 the cheapest whey protein in the UK.
As I’ve mentioned in other reviews, I’m a bit of a Luddite when it comes to protein flavours.
So, given a choice of (amongst others) ‘Key Lime Pie’, ‘Jammie Biscuit’, ‘Rhubarb & Custard Sweets’, I was a bit skeptical.
Also, how does one extract flavouring essence from Jammie biscuits?
Some sort of wizardry no doubt.
Anyway, I opted for maple syrup and pancakes, which in hindsight was one of the best decisions I’ve made in 2013.
As 1/8 Canadian, I think I’m pretty qualified to judge good pancakes.
Go Whey Protein 80’s particular take on it was rather special.
In truth it tasted a bit like an ice cream cone and maple syrup which was nonetheless delicious.
What’s more, it mixed fantastically.
No lumps, no powder left on the shaker, win!
I went through a 900g bag of Go Whey Protein 80 in two weeks and was genuinely impressed with the gains.
In the middle of a fairly old school strength programme, this protein was really aiding my recovery.
I felt strong in every session and even managed to finally better my 1RM deadlift PR.
Overall this is a fantastic product.
Clearly a lot of time and effort has gone into Go Whey Protein 80 and the fact Go Nutrition can sell it for £15.99 for one kilogram is an absolute steal.
Great for the bodybuilder on a budget and one of, if not the, best all round whey proteins on the market.
For Gymtalk, a fantastic introduction to this new company, and we can’t wait to try sample some of their other products in the future.

Great review, Greg.
I also think that this is the best protein for those who are on a tight budget.
It mixes and tastes great too.
Glad to hear that you’ve made some gains in just two weeks.
Well worth it!
Thanks for the comment Mark, have you tried any of their other products?
I’ve just ordered a bag of Solo.
I have indeed, Greg.
I was lucky enough to be sent some of their products prior to their launch.
Love the flavours and the texture.
I am going Go Nutrition on my next stock up.
How long does a bag last you?
I also like the little orange shaker bottle 🙂
Yeh just received a shaker with my latest order, always appreciated!
I only had a 900g bag last time so that lasted like 2-3 weeks.
Just received 4kg of Solo which should last a month or two!
