Hello, people! After reviewing few of their other products, I’m reviewing the protein powder from Zenith Nutrition! I’d been on a hunt for protein powders/shakes for my breakfast since I had not been eating one properly these days. For the last one month, I’ve been having this whey protein mixed with hot milk for my breakfast (along with some nuts, veggies etc!) and here are my views on it!
The protein powder comes in a cylindrical white plastic container with a sturdy screw lid! The packaging is simple but convenient. Being chocolate in color (a soft, mud-chocolate!) the powder is packed neatly in plastic covers and stored inside the container. You can find all the ingredients, usage instructions etc on the back cover.
The brand suggests to add 1-2 scoops of the protein powder to 240 ml of milk or water. Since I’m aiming for weight gain, I use full cream milk and believe me, it tastes the best with the milk! I do not use it cold; I tried mixing it into cold milk once and there were lumps. I guess I need to use a shaker/blender to get the consistency right if I’m having it ‘cold’. Nevertheless, I prepare it with hot (boiling hot? Yes!) milk in the morning and have it soon after I brush my teeth. It helps a lot in curbing my hunger!
I got it in the ‘chocolate flavor’; worried if it’d be too strong for my taste but surprisingly, it is a very mild chocolate flavor that will not be hated by people like my mom. (Her all time favorite is vanilla and she hates chocolate! Did I just miss
spelling typing strawberry? She hates strawberries more than anything!) The taste is not the best in the market. But, when I searched about it on the internet – I read pure whey does NOT taste tad good so again, it’s a good sign the product is all ‘pure!’
My purpose of including this to the diet is – weight gain! I did not want to rely on all oily/fatty foods to pack on pounds. I read so many good things about Whey on the internet and it got me curious to try it! This protein shake helps me attain lean muscles. It contains a bunch of amino-acids, essential for our daily needs! It is too early to say if I’d gained weight with it! But I definitely am active after I started taking this and the One-A-Day capsules together!
Price : Rs.980 for 300 g
Overall, this is one of the best whey proteins available in the Indian market today! Pure, mild tasting and it doesn’t taste as if it contains any artificial flavoring agent! You can use this either to lose or gain weight as per your preference. If you want to lose weight, cut down unhealthy fats in your meal and include this (maybe after a workout).
If you’re planning to put on weight, you should consume this along with other nutritious food items. Having a glass of this Zenith protein whey shake right after your workout is a good idea!
Have a great day!
