I never heard that Weider manufactures his own line of supplements and I checked out this whole new range on a local nutrition store. Weider produces a vast line of sports nutrition supplements and after using their Premium Whey I can comment about the quality. You can get a catalog to see from the range of supplements if your supplement retailer stocks products from the company.
I purchased the Weider Premium Whey – strawberry vanilla flavor, 5lbs tub for $60. It’s quite pricey here and I still purchased it after a little bargain. It’s a mixture of whey protein concentrate and isolate. There is 80 percent protein in the tub i.e. 1840 grams of 2300 grams is protein. There are BCAAs and glutamine added to the protein.
I used this protein after workouts and first thing in the morning. It is fast absorbing whey and thus, suitable for using post workout with creatine or one can consume it during the day as well. I took around 2 servings in water after workouts to get 50 grams of protein.
I would like to kick off the review by describing about taste. I won’t say I loved the flavor but it was unique and decent blend of vanilla and strawberry. You may mix it in milk to make a tasty protein shake but in water it tastes good. The taste could have been better. I loved the mild vanilla aroma every time I consumed it. You can see the consistency of the protein in the picture below. It will stick to the walls but it easy to mix especially in water. I never used it in milk.
Next aspect I want to share is the mixability. There were no clumps, no hardship to mix the whey. You can mix it in shaker in seconds. (You can see the image below, there are no clumps but it looks like washing soap after mixing, LOL)
I didn’t face any problem while using it. It digests very well and I had no issues like bloating or flatulence. I am not lactose intolerant so I felt no troubles.
Price per serving is quite high. I felt I could have gone for other whey proteins that would have tasted better like ON rocky road or cake batter for a 20% lower price. So, the purchase turned to be a little harder on pocket and this restrains me from buying it in future.
The most important part about any supplement is the effectiveness. I took it after workout (2 scoops) and first thing in the morning (two scoops) for a quick protein supply. I can compare it with cheaper and similar options like Dymatize, ON, Universal if you are looking for whey protein concentrate mixed with fractions of whey protein isolate. Weider premium whey has 20% fractions of whey protein isolate and the whey protein is processed using microfiltration, a process of extracting whey protein that claims to preserve the elements of whey like lactoferrins in a better way.
It helped me recover from strenuous workouts and worked well for me. The quality is good in my opinion. I used it with creatine and dextrose post workout. It helped me gain 3 pounds of lean muscle mass.
I can rate Weider Premium Whey out of ten to put an overview-
Taste, aroma and consistency – 7.5/10
Mixability – 9/10
Digestibility – 9/10
Effectiveness – 8/10
Price per serving – 5/10
Overall score – 7.7/10
Will I buy it again? – NO it’s an expensive whey and I have other alternatives.
