Just like flicking through the pages of a where’s Wally book, the supplement market is flooded with whey protein concentrate. Some are good. Some are bad. Other are down right shit.
I’ve already reviewed the Maple Syrup & Pancake Go Whey Isolate (which tasted absolutely unreal). Today im taking GN Whey Isolate’s little sister on a dinner date, in the Gain Train. Will romance blossom? Find out in my Go Nutrition Go Whey Protein 80 Review.
Go Whey Protein 80 is GoNutrition’s whey protein concentrate.
Whey protein concentrate is the most commonly used whey protein supplement available. Any bulk or cheap supplement brand will offer a whey protein concentrate containing 80% or more protein content.
Go Whey 80 is no exception. The clue is kind of in the name.
Per 25g Serving (1 scoop)
- 96 kcal
- 20.4g protein
- 1.2g carbs
- 1.45g fat
Unlike some lesser quality protein powders, there are no fillers or crappy ingredients to pad out the powder.
Go Whey 80 is just pure whey protein concentrate. Exactly what you need to help you gain lean muscle mass.
Taste & Texture
One thing I love about GoNutrition Supplements are the range of flavours they offer.
While they don’t offer as many flavours as the 28 flavours of whey available from the My Protein Supplements range, there are some unique flavours that i’ve not seen available from any other protein powders.
GoNutrition offers their GN whey protein concentrate in 14 flavours, including the unflavoured version.
Whilst some of these are the traditional flavours with a fancy name attached to it. Chocolate peppermint snaps – chocolate mint. Vanilla Ice cream – Vanilla. Triple Chocolate – plain ol chocolate.
However where the flavours of GN Whey 80 get me salivating are their blueberry cheesecake, black forest gateau, maple syrup & pancake and rhubarb and custard sweets.
I’ve tried their maple syrup & pancake flavour, key lime pie, vanilla, banana, strawberry and jammie biscuit flavours. Each of which tastes awesome.
My favourite was the maple syrup & pancake flavour. It’s literally comparable to no other protein shake i’ve ever had. I’ve not seen any other kind of protein supplement come in a similar flavour. It really is unique to GoNutrition, and is a flavour I would buy regularly.
The jammie biscuit was nice, however didn’t taste as I expected it to. It was more fruity as opposed to anything that resembled a biscuit.
I’m looking forward to trying the black forest gateau and blueberry cheesecake flavours.
GN Whey protein powder mixes to make a perfect, smooth, protein drink. With milk the consistency is like a regular milkshake. As with any protein powder, mixing it with water makes the consistency a lot less thick. Id say thinner, but you can’t describe a drink as being thinner (can you?)
No need for a blender, smoothie maker, or a spiral in your shaker bottle. Just add water or liquid, give it a quick shake, and drink it.
This easy to mix nature is due to the soy lecithin use in Go Whey 80. It makes the protein ‘instantised’, meaning that it dissolves in liquid easier, preventing clumping.
Anyone who performance any kind of resistance training, be it bodybuilding, powerlifting, intense cardio, athletics or any other kind of physical activity will need to eat a higher amount of protein than a sedentary adult. Protein is required to help your body repair the damage done to your muscle’s from training, and help it grow bigger and stronger.
Protein is what fuels gains. If you’re not trying to chase that gain train, then you’re wasting your time.
No matter if you’re trying to gain muscle, or lose fat, protein is an essential macro nutrient to maximise body composition.
Go Whey 80 contains everything you need in a protein powder to help maximise your gains. Taking Go Whey 80 post workout is a perfect opportunity to help kick start protein synthesis, as your body can digest & absorb the nutrients from whey protein much quicker than it can food.
Hitting a high level of protein may be a struggle for some, especially if you don’t have much of an appetite, or if you have to eat when travelling.
Go Whey 80 from GoNutrition packs almost 20grams of protein per scoop, making it an easy way to hit your protein intake, and to ensure muscle growth and repair will take place.
When to use it
Go Whey 80 can also be used between whole meals, as a light snack to ensure you’re hitting your protein requirements for the day. It can also be used as a meal replacement or mass gain shake.
If you’re looking to make healthy treats, then whey protein powder is commonly used in protein baking recipes. Here are 6 tips to help you get started with protein baking.
Value For Money
This is what is so great about Go Whey 80. Its cheap as fuarq!
You can get it for as little as £0.29 serving if you buy the 4.5kg bag for £51.47. This will give you 180 servings of protein. Each packing 20grams! That is a ridiculous price.
If you don’t want to commit to just one flavour, you can also pick up 500g, 1kg and 2kg bars from as little as £8.99.
The Bottom Line
No protein powder works like that.
A more accurate way to summarise this GoNutrition Go Whey 80 Review is to say that it is one of the highest quality, and most affordable protein supplements available.
It packs a solid 80% protein content, and contains a sound amino acid profile. It has no fillers, and is just pure whey protein powder.
There is a great range of flavours, each of the ones i’ve tried tastes great. I always finish drinking one of these shakes and start thinking about when i’ll be drinking my next shake.
In the words of Triple H – It’s that, damn, good.
If you workout, you’ll be needing a high amount of protein in your diet. Go Whey 80 from GoNutrition is a great protein supplement to help you hit your protein intake, and to ensure that you’re riding that gain train all year long.
