Product Review: Purition wholefood protein shakes

Check out Purition’s range of healthy protein shakes which come in attractive portion-sized pouches of powder which you blend yourself.

I’m working my way through a range of flavours which include macademia & vanilla, chocolate, coconut, almond, pistachio, chocolate orange and strawberry. They taste great: none of the sickly sweetness of some other brands of protein powder. Perfect for a post-workout nutrition boost.

Each 40g pouch gives you over 15g whey protein, just under 200g calories, 14 grams of essential fats, 3.4g carbs (of which just 1g is the natural sugar stevia), and over 6g of fibre. The real attraction is the high quality protein without any artificial sweeteners, and the low sugar content.

The fibre content keeps you feeling fuller for longer, and helps regulate your insulin response, and the soluble fibre from apple pectin helps mop up your bad (LDL) cholesterol.

Check out Purition’s website pageĀ which takes you straight to their range of shakes which you can order online.
