Which protein powder should I use?

Estimated reading time: 1 min

This is a tricky subject for some people. Do you choose whey protein concentrate powder, plant-based protein or whey protein isolate?

Here are a few differences:

  1. Plant proteins are not as bioavailable (meaning they are not absorbed as readily) – however, they are very hypoallergenic.
  2. Whey Protein Concentrate is cheaper, and a less processed type of protein powder. However, it contains more lactose.
  3. Whey Protein Isolate is the most bioavailable and has minimal lactose. – However, it’s more processed.

*In all cases, you should be getting grass fed where possible*.


If you want to go plant-based, get Temple Nutritions Hemp Protein Powder (use code FFWL15 for 15% Off) AUS ONLY

If you want the best value, get Venom Protein’s Whey Protein Concentrate.

If you want the most bioavailable, then get IsoPure Zero Carb. (WPI is what I use)


Alternatively, you could get Perfect Keto’s Collagen Powder (which is a type of protein that is more suitable for the ketogenic diet).
