- The powder contains Beta Glucans – found in oats to maintain blood cholesterol levels.
- Green tree extracts have been added for its antioxidants

- And essential fatty acids
With these ingredients plus whey protein, oats and flaxseeds your body can really benefit from this nutritional masterpiece.

You may notice from these nutritionals that there is more fat, carbs and calories than normal whey protein, which you may think is counterproductive. However, the nutritious ingredients of this impact diet whey promote weight loss and have far more nutritional benefits than normal whey protein.
My initial reaction to this protein powder was shock.
Because I expected it to be low calorie. I guess low calorie and diet seem to go hand in hand. But actually, after a little research, I discovered that there’s a valid reason this protein powder isn’t as low calorie as expected…
Nutrients contain calories – of course!
Ensuring you’re getting all the nutrients you need and hitting weight loss/macro goals with food, is near on impossible. Which is why adding vital nutritional goodness to this powder is super beneficial to you.
Next, I noticed the smell.
slightly off-putting, it smells similar to vegan protein as opposed to normal whey protein. It’s slightly earthy in smell, I’m guessing from the nutrients. I have a double chocolate flavour, so I expected a sweet, rich smell but that’s not what I got – which made me nervous to try it.
I poured 2 scoops into my shaker and filled it with water. It didn’t seem to blend as well as normal whey, but I soon realised this is due to the oats. There are a couple of lumpy oaty bits in it but these didn’t really bother me.
The main thing, is that the taste was actually great. I needn’t have been nervous.
Great taste. Odd smell. OK texture. A solid 7/10!
