tastes amazing but it's definitely not worth it!


it tastes amazing but it gave me stomachache every time I take it after my workout session. Apparently has a low quality protein (whey concentrate). Considering the price, I'd go for an isolate protein like BPI or even nitrotech. I also can't find review of it anywhere other than its own aussie retailers like nutrition warehouse which makes me really doubt the quality of it.

Purchased in September 2021 at Nutrition Warehouse for $140.00.

Great taste!!


Just started using this product yesterday, I have only tried salted caramel flavour and it tastes ridiculously amazing, I’ll let you know down the track on how well it works.

Thick one batch thin the next.


Loved the first 3kg tub which was like a thick frothy tasty milk shake. Next tub had no froth, returned it but replacment was the same. No explanation from Genetix. Won't be trusting this brand again unfortunately.Other reviewers had the same problem.

I'm a newbie to protein but on and off over the years I have been taking protein powder. I stumbled across the three in one bucket with Caramel, Vanilla and Chocolate. My god, do these taste good. The caramel is great with water, don't recommend the chocolate or vanilla with water. Vanilla is actually my favorite flavor with milk - so delicious! It is unlike any other vanilla protein powder I have had.



Have seen the best results from this.


Recently made the change from ON Gold standard to genetix lean whey. I had been using genetix brand ZMA for months as a test bolster and sleep aid and wanted to see if their whey works as good. I'm not surprised that this product was fantastic, tastes amazing, mixes well (I use a bullet blender though so everything mixes well in that) I can honestly feel the difference during my recovery phases because of this stuff. I have become a life time advocate of this product and will recommend it to anyone

Best lift ever


Just broke my pb and felt like I could keep going.
Good to know ive got a protein waiting to repair my muscles at home. Heads up to lean whey.

this is the worst formula they made. They have wrecked it.


Lean whey use to be good until they changed the formula now its like drinking washing liquid its way to foamy. I love the genetix nutrition range and use all there other product, but this lean whey is now wrecked and wont be useing it again unless they go back to there old formula thanks. Nothing worse then trying to drink something with a washing liquid foam consistency. Spewed that crap up. Sorry genetix i love your products but this one needs fixing.

After reading nato's review I went out and bought this product. It really tastes great! I've tried quite a few over the last little while and I'm not sure about how good it works but I'm going to continue to use this protein.

Great tasting protein


Can't attest to the quality of the protein powder since I'm no scientist, but it's definitely the tastiest I've had. It has a smooth, thick texture similar to that of a milkshake, and makes me WANT it instead of having to forcing it down my throat (ew, BB branded protein). Also tastes better than ON's powders at least, but not as mixable however. Would buy again.

Best protein i've ever used


I used to take 1 marijuana in the morning and 2 before bed and it made me autistic and gay. After snorting one line of genetix nutritions 100% lean whey, i was cured. i highly recommended this product, it saved my life. dont do weed kids, it kills several billion per day

Best protein


Bought this from the nutrition store near my gym, its been my favorite Protein so far. Taste was a 9/10. It has about 30 grams of protein with barely and Carbohydrates. I use this with my breakfast and after a workout and then before bed. I find it digests easily and aids in my recovery after training.
Taste, price, mix-ability, results
Only comes in 1 or 3kg

Depends on what you Are trying to achieve and what restrictions are on your diet.
I’m cutting our dairy to lose fat %, so water is the best way for me to take it.



Genetix Nutrition Lean WPI makes me sick during the workout and I start feeling dizzy.
Does it happen to anyone else too?

Hi JillD, Ensure you are not taking lean Wpi to close to a workout. Recommendations would be 90mins prior and directly after.
Also ensure you are not lactose intolerant although there is a only 1% in this product it may still upset sensitive stomachs.
