Quest Nutrition is a brand that not so long ago wasn’t even available in the UK. Once we heard about the great things Quest were doing in the U.S.A, a few years back, we just had to stock the brand - particularly their Quest Bars.
Now, Quest Nutrition is a worldwide phenomenon!
If you haven’t already heard, Quest now have a top end protein powder which we’ve had amazing feedback for due to the outstanding quality, taste and versatility.
Here we have a review of the Quest Nutrition Protein Powder to give you an insight into what it’s all about!
Ingredients & Nutritional Information
*Based on Strawberries & Cream Flavour*
First of all the ingredients used for the Quest Nutrition Protein Powder are good, very good.
We have a protein blend consisting of:
- Whey Protein Isolate
- Micellar Casein
- Milk Protein Isolate
Together this protein blend supplies amino acids swiftly from the Whey Protein Isolate, contributing to the growth and repair of lean muscle tissue relatively quickly. Whilst the more slow digesting protein sources (Micellar Casein & Milk Protein Isolate) deliver more of a sustained release of amino acids due to them requiring more time to digest.
Oh and we also have the addition of dried strawberries to add that real premium feel for the strawberry flavour, other flavours share this theme, thebPeanut Butter flavour has peanuts added, the chocolate flavour has Cocoa and so on!
Lastly, there’s a small amount (less than 2% in fact) of sweeteners and thickeners to really bring out the best taste from the ingredients. The Quest Nutrition Protein Powder impressed us with it’s high protein content and low fat/carbohydrate content as shown below.
Per 28g per serving:
- 21g of protein
- 0g of fat
- 3g of carbohydrates
This combination of high protein and low fat/carbs makes it highly versatile for nutritional plans, due to many plans demanding to be low in carbs and/or fat - this hardly impacts either of these macronutrients.
We love it, the strawberry taste is just how you want it - like a refreshing milkshake with tones of cream coming through, to make the overall result indulgent and luxurious. We tried out the Quest Protein Powder with water and with milk too - both taste absolutely fantastic! Protein powders have come a long way in the last few years but Quest have taken it to another level...good work Quest!
