Table of content:
1. Pure Whey Protein – Supplement Powder Muscleblaze
Whey protein powder from MuscleBlaze offers a great variety of flavours at a really good price. Its packaging is straight to the point. No decoration nothing, without any charade. It’s an Indian brand hence comparatively to International brands lighter on your pocket.
Per 33 gm of serving from this, contains 25 gm of protein with energy of 125.45 Kcal. It comes with a full amino acid profile which includes 5.5 grams of BCAAs and 11.7grams of essential amino acids in per serving.
BCAAs namely leucine, isoleucine and valine helps in enhancing muscular strength, stamina and swift muscle recovery. (BCAA means Branched-chain amino acids).
It aids in speedy muscle recovery. In fact, 25g of pure muscle-building proteins, with its every serving, in this whey protein helps in speedy and effective recovery of muscles post strenuous workout sessions for a lean muscle built.
When should this be consumed? For effective results, consume it in the morning post your workout. But if you are exercising regularly then you are advised to consume it immediately after your workout session. No doubt it made to the list of the best whey powder in India.
How can it be served? Add a full scoop (approx 33grams) of MuscleBlaze 100% Supplement Powder with Digestive Enzyme to 190-210ml of cold water or skimmed milk and give it a good blend for around 45-50 seconds till the time it is thick and creamy.
A. Suitable for women. Even after heavyweight lift exercise.
2. Pure Whey Protein Powder- Optimum Nutrition (ON) Gold Standard
One of the best whey protein powder in India. Out of four forms of protein powder available (see “What are the different forms?” below) “isolate” form is found in it. ON has got this form by highest content by weight (by at least 90%).
Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) are the purest form that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use, hey!! but who said best things are cheap in life. It is rated among the best proteins that money can buy. That’s why they’re the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey™ label.
By using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), it is able to pack 24 grams of protein into every serving to support your muscle-building needs after training.
It is due to this it is counted as among the best in the world. If one was to say that “ON” IS THE BENCHMARK in the industry, I don’t think that’s an overstatement!!!

B. Can be consumed by women.
A. Slightly expensive.
3. Pure Whey Protein – Ultimate Nutrition (UN) Prostar
Another epic whey protein powder. It also has got one of the highest protein content in the market. 1 scoop of UN will give you around 30 gm of protein but I would recommend you no to use it daily. Use only during heavy muscle workout.
Now the worse part is, the market is flooded with loads of duplicate version of this product. Needless to say, their consumption can have negative effect on your body, some can be long term and others can be irreversible in nature.
Hence the knowledge of spotting a genuine product is crucial.
Don’t worry, one of the customers came as a “superman” and came to all our rescue. Please follow the below-mentioned steps:
A) There are a lot of fake importers of UN in India and to check that U can go visit UN official website where they have given a list of fake importers.
B) How to check UN’s originality: Check for the sticker of “Muscle House India PVT ltd”, it should not be xeroxed one. Top is sealed by plastic.
C) Once you open it, there is a covering sealed with hard paper with UN written in small letter all over, it should not be plain hard paper.
Hope this helps…

What is Whey protein?
“Whey” is basically a by-product of the cheese-making process-the liquid left over once the mild has been strained. When you convert this into a powder form, you get one of the most popular sports nutrition product, a.k.a. “Whey Protein”.
What are the different form?
There are basically four forms:
A Whey protein concentrate: Most commercially available concentrates contains about 80% protein. It has about 5% lactose, fat, and other minerals.
B. Whey protein isolate: Considered to be one of the purest form of whey protein available. Contains about 90-95% of whey protein. It contains very little fat around .5% and a similar quantity of lactose. Good for people who are lactose intolerant.
It often lacks other beneficial components of whey, including immunoglobulin and other small molecules that have beneficial health properties.
c. Whey protein hydrolysate: It is kind of whey that has been enzymatically treated to break down long proteins into shorter proteins. This process makes it ore easily absorbed by the body.
One can meet one’s body daily protein requirement via daily food. But the word “supplement” is quite important in this context. When we say protein supplement, we mean that bridging the gap between the required level of protein and the present level of protein (in your food) by the consumption of this protein supplement.
With so many choices, there are some very general guidelines, based on the outcomes/certain medical restriction etc. Please read below:
A. Build Muscles: Duh!! do I need to say more.
B. Lose weight – These whey protein help you to lose weight. Make sure the amount of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) is really low since they help to gain weight.
C. This is applicable only if you are vegan: Do not use whey powder or any other kind of protein powder. Instead, use 100% plant proteins.
D. For people with diabetes: For such people, I would recommend choosing a protein shakes without added sugar. Also best to go for low carbohydrates ones too.
E. Limit protein for kidney disease: People, who are lactose intolerance, should choose powders that don’t contain lactose sugars, artificial sweeteners.
F. Finally budget: I know these whey proteins are not cheap. But please do not consume any cheap powder; this will certainly impact your body. This impact can vary from short term to long term impact and I have read cases where it proved to be lethal in nature.
If you are confused about it please please please consult a doctor. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Moreover, do pay special attention to the part below, where we show you how to spot a fake whey protein.
How to spot a fake Whey Protein powder!!
Though this heading did not sound worth writing to me in the beginning. But as I interacted with many gym enthusiasts and quite a few nutritionists, I was told that spotting a fake product is as important as choosing the right whey protein for your body.
One of the doctor I consulted said that today the market is filled with such fake products. From life-threatening effects (like affecting your lungs) to having major short term major impact like incessant vomit!! are some of their side effects.
So how to spot a fake product. Believe it or not, if you are careful enough you can catch a fake product before buying it just by reading the label carefully. Main aim of fake supplements is to make maximum profits and they also tend to cut the cost using low-quality labels.
No matter how well they do it, there will always remain a difference in the packing. What exactly should you be looking for? First of all, look for the quality of the print. If you have bought the same product before that was genuine, refer to that. Try to match the two together and you will notice that the label on the fake product would look like someone just printed it in their backyard.
Another thing to look for is how well the label was glued to the box. Sounds a little ridiculous but it is true. I have been told that in case of fake whey protein, the label started to come off within a week. Sometimes, the box is still sealed pack and the label is coming off.
