Headache and bloating
I was excited to try my first protein powder and was happy to see a cheap alternative. But after consuming, it gave me a severe headache and left me bloated all day.
- Mild side effects
Purchased from Woolworths for $10 on special so thought I would give it a try. Very happy with the taste and found it quite filling. Recently another brand was on special so I compared the ingredients/calories and this is when i realised this product has artifical sweetners!!! Very dissapointed as I do not have sugar as a regular additive and i have always avoided artificial seeetners ( they have NOT been proved to not cause cancer in lab rats) anyway...isn't this supposed to be all natural?
Super Greens variety is VILE
Purchased in May 2019. A light green powder which is supposed to be drunk with milk.
Turns more of a paint-like pale green colour when mixed. I found the supposed vanilla flavour was non-existent (for me), instead it has an overly strong and horrible green vegie flavour.
I've tried mixing it with other foods to mitigate the unpleasant taste, but the colour and flavour dominates everything.
Finally had some success mixing half a tablespoon with a cup-a-soup, specifically Asian Laksa, even then with a dash of chilli sauce!
Perfect...almost neutral taste
Finally found low cost protein with almost no taste and only 2 ingred in it! I use banana, vanilla extract,water and the protein powder for a super filling breakfast and mid afternoon snack. Sometimes add frozen raspberries too. Love it,look out for when it’s on special chemist warehouse,Woolworths etc...
Excellent vegan protein
Love everything about it for making my own personalised shake. The one and only thing I do NOT like at all is the company changed the lid to a narrower opening (you won't see this until you take the lid off) so now I have to transfer the powder into another container when it's half way down because you can't get your hand in to measure with a spoon) and this change has also rendered an otherwise wonderful container for recycling into a useless ....thing! Why oh why fix something that ain't broke!!
This is actually the grossest thing I’ve ever consumed. I tried many ways to make it enjoyable and it still tasted like death. This product should not be on the market.
Ingredients looks great. Really like this product however 2nd day after consuming the Figure Shaping Women's Soy protein I'm experiencing severe bloating. I normally bloat when I'm allergic to something. Somethings not right, gut is definitely inflamed. I'm thinking it's the artificial sweetener sucralose. Studies showed it disrups gut bacteria... I'm so disappointed...
I wanted a protein powder as i am struggling to get enough protein in my diet, so i decided to buy this one from the supermarket as it was right there. I have it with banana, strawberries, blackberries, chobani yoghurt, milk and almond meal or coconut sprinkled on top. It tastes really nice, you have to expect some taste from protein powders but this is definitely not bad. This mix has a lot if calories but it also gets me to 50g protein in one hit at breakfast. I have the vanilla flavour. I have used other proteins that taste foul but i would buy this one again.
Product not effective for me.
I tried this product in the chocolate flavour after using NatureWay Slimright VLCD 21 Pea Protein sachets in the box. The latter is no longer available. In terms of weight loss, I have found the new Instant Natural Protein Powder no where as effective as the former pea protein sachets.
I wont be purchasing this product again, as there are other brands out there that gave me better results.
Great product pleasant taste
Great product pleasant taste. I don’t know why some people are having problems mixing this product. I have a cheap milkshake maker I use coconut water (make sure you put the powder in last or it will stick to the bottom of the blender) blend for about 10 seconds no grains perfectly smooth beautiful taste would recommend to anyone.
Perfect for my needs
I wanted a low calorie, easy to prepare breakfast to help me start the day on the right note. Two level tablespoons of the unflavoured powder, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, a few drops of chocolate essence, blend for 10 seconds: perfect result! For more lavish days replace the chocolate essence with a few blueberries or strawberries. Once again, a great way to start my day.
I'm getting sick after drinking
I just needed a protein powder for a few days on holidays and the nature way was the cheapest one which also looked reliable (because all the added amino acids are listed,...). I took it twice and I got sick. My throat started to hurt and I had that feeling for three days. After the three days I started to workout again and took the powder again. The weird feeling in the throat returned. I know many people thing I was just sick and I shouldn't go training, but I know my body quite well and took a lot of different protein powder before. I threw the powder in the bin and that's my advise what you should do as well if you accidentally bought that criminal disgusting crap. P.S. the taste is also awful, but that's not too important for me.

Questions & Answers
Is the whey based powder now off the market? I have been only able to find plant based now and it tastes disgusting.
