With a profusion of proteins on the market, it can be hard to know which to plump for. But, choose any of these ten, and you won’t go far wrong…

Neat Nutrition’s ethos is to keep things simple and its ‘Lean Protein’ does just that. It’s made from quality ingredients including high-grade Organic Matcha Green Tea and naturally occurring proteins that aid muscle repair and encourage fat loss.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard
Whey protein isolates are the primary protein source in Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey, with 24 grams in each serving – and Optimum is one of the most highly-regarded proteins in the bodybuilding community.
The Protein Works Whey
Not only is Whey Protein 80 SF+ the UK’s first whey protein shake with no added soy lecithin – making it soy free – it is also unparalleled in purity. If you’re having doubts about taking supplements, there are none as clean as this.
Multipower 100% Whey Protein
Multipower’s 100% Pure Whey Protein offers 80% high quality Protein from three different sources – Whey protein isolate, concentrate and hydrolysate. By using Isolate as the primary source, each serving is packed with 24g of pure protein – and it lives up to its promise of power.
Met-Rx Supreme Whey
Its flavour may sound a little off-putting, but the main benefit of Met-Rx’s strawberry whey is its versatility. You can blend with milk, water or even fruit-flavoured yoghurt to support the maintenance and growth of lean muscle mass.
Precision Engineered Whey Protein
Derived from milk, Precision Engineered Whey Protein Chocolate is a natural and complete source of protein, and is ideal for individuals with an active lifestyle or those who want to increase their protein intake.

Kinetica Whey Protein
Kinetica Whey Protein contains BIOTEIN, an exclusive whey protein based complex, created using a unique blend of whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate and hydrolysed whey protein, meaning that this protein is considerably easier for the body to digest and assimilate.
PhD Pharma Whey HT+
Pharma Whey HT+ does not use any slow release protein sources such as wheat or milk protein, two ingredients that should only be included in a slow-release protein formula. Combined with an even better, creamy taste and lower saturated fat content, this means that Pharma gets to work fast – and effectively.
Bulk Powders Informed Whey Protein
Informed Whey uses unrivalled amounts of the purest protein and amino acids, and combines them with gourmet taste and rigorous independent banned substance testing to create, perhaps the best protein shake in the UK, and certainly the most thoroughly created.
MusclePharm Combat Powder
It may sound like it’s been named using a focus group of teenage boys, but MusclePharm’s Combat Powder is very effective. Gluten free, and containing 5 powerful proteins, it supports muscle growth and maintenance in equal measure.
