The Sinob Honest Whey + Protein powder and the whole supplement brand are very well known in Germany (it is a German brand after all – visit their website here). But, it does not get the recognition here in the UK, which is a shame. We have come across this brand many years ago and we have established a long-lasting business-friendly relationship with the owners. The quality of their products is 100% and we would recommend these products to anybody into fitness.
Today we have asked one of our youngest team members to write a detailed review about their Sinob Honest Whey + protein powder.
Key facts of Sinob Honest Whey +
- great taste
- a mix of Whey Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Concentrate
- 12.5 % whey isolate proportion
- very soluble
Taste and texture
There has been a lot of speculation about the tastes of protein. The worse the taste, the better the protein. We are not in the 1990s anymore, everything has developed over the years. The uniqueness of this protein is the unusual tastes and the quality of it.
I do not like drinking protein in general, so if I drink it, it must taste phenomenal to me. From this range, I have tried the shortbread biscuit, apple strudel, and vanilla ice-cream. Not a fan of the apple strudel one, but oh the shortbread biscuit. It’s so good, I have a third pack now and already running low. Especially with almond milk, tastes like liquid shortbread. They have so many other flavours available which I have yet not tried, but it is definitely on my list.
I have nothing to say about the texture. It is smooth withing seconds of shaking the protein shake. The thickness of the shake obviously depends on the amount of powder you put in.
How well does it mix?
As stated before, it mixes really well within seconds of shaking the protein shake. It does not create lumps. You don’t need to blend it at all, just use a good shaker bottle.
From my own experience, it tastes great with almond or oat milk. But that is just preference, I have tried it with regular semi-skimmed milk and it tastes just as good.
The nutrition of Sinob Honest Whey +
It is a mix of Whey Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Concentrate. The whey protein concentrate contains emulsifier soya lecithin – 83.3%, and the whey protein isolate contains emulsifier soya lecithin – 12.5%, flavour, acidifier citric acid, sweetener (sucralose, acesulfame K).
1 serving is 30g, which gives you about 24g of protein and only 1.5g of carbs – 116kcal. Which is similar to any other protein out there. It may slightly vary with the flavours, but it is roughly the same.
For me, it does not really matter when I use protein powder. I am not a competitor or training to get into a certain shape. I just use it to increase my protein intake, which is something I really struggle with. Plus it tastes delicious in my oats and cereal.
Sometimes I have it for a light breakfast, sometimes after training, sometimes at night when I realise I haven’t eaten much that day.
It’s a protein powder and it does the job. I cannot physically get that much protein I need from real foods, so supplementing with the Sinob Honest Whey + has been a necessity for me. In the past 2-3 years, I have tried many other brands before this one, cheaper of course, but I was always bloated to the point it got really uncomfortable and painful. I have never had an issue with this protein powder.
Summary of the Sinob Honest Whey + Protein
Looks like it’s all pros, but it is all justified. Sinob Honest Whey + is a top quality supplement with the most delicious tastes I have ever tasted in a protein powder. The only downside might be, it is a little bit on the pricy side. Nevertheless, I don’t mind paying extra money if it works and does not make me sick like other supplement brands.
Overall, this protein is just a protein powder. It does the job, it increases your protein intake, it tastes good, it will not make you sick or bloated and you can be sure the quality is 100%. Generally, if you check all German supplement brands, they are all good and good quality. Whereas here in the UK it is sometimes questionable how some brands sell their products for so cheap and there have been issues when what was in the product wasn’t on the label and vice versa.
