N-HANCE YOUR GAINS. N-JOY THE TASTE.
Proven Superior to Whey Alone.
Science in protein has advanced....has yours?
N-PRO is the epitomy of protein quality, a designer blend of 6 different forms of LEAN whole proteins formulated for rapid, intermediate and sustained delivery of muscle building fuel. Cross-flow cold-processed and microfiltered, these high quality and high biological value proteins will provide hours of sustained ammunition for enhanced muscle protein generation.
"WHEY" OLD-SCHOOL SCIENCE-
Whey protein is often referred to as the "gold standard" of protein, much like Egg Albumin was the gold standard in the 80s and 90s. New research demonstrates combinations used in N-Pro of whey protein with slower digesting proteins like egg and casein blends are superior to whey because blends:
1) promote a longer positive nitrogen balance;
2) trigger higher levels of muscle protein synthesis, as well as
3) offer a prolonged duration of amino acid absorption – and thus muscle growth and recovery.*
Combine these benefits of a carefully crafted blend of high quality proteins with nothing but the highest standard of flavour decadence and you get N-PRO. No added amino acids required, maltodextrin or fatty creamers; no gluten and no banned substances; just 26 grams of delicious protein from whole sources.
You can trust that N-PRO is formulated to the highest standard and actually meets all label claims. What’s on the bottle is in the bottle. Every batch of N-PRO (and all ANS Performance products) is subjected to 3rdparty laboratory testing to confirm identity, purity and potency. This ensures that every lot is manufactured to the same gold standard specification of the one previous, and you as the customer know you are receiving the quality of product that has become synonymous with the ANS Performance brand.
The proof is in the strict controls imposed on every batch of N-PRO, see for yourself below with the 3rdparty independent lab results:
Image 1: MAXXAM ANALYTICS – 3rd PARTY INDEPENDENT PROTEIN ASSAY:
IMAGE 2: CONSOLIDATED CERTIFICATE OF ANALYSIS of PROTEIN ASSAY, MICROBIOLOGICAL PURITY & ORGANOLEPTIC TESTING
Let’s walk through the results so that those of you unfamiliar with a standard Certificate of Analysis can make sense of it all. Every batch of N-PRO is tested for its purity, potency as well as organoleptic features (taste, smell, color, texture) against the strict specifications established by a retained ‘gold standard’ sample.
We’ll start with the organoleptic part of it. In Image 2 you see that the powder color, size (texture), and smell needs to match the standard. The powder is also mixed into water as per the mixing directions on the label to ensure that the taste when mixed is exactly as expected. Given the incredible taste of N-PRO, anything less than a match and the batch would be discarded completely and start from scratch.
Potency is the Protein Assay Test. In the example above of Milk Chocolate Decadence, each serving as listed on the label is 36.6 grams in weight. To meet the label claim of 26g of protein per serving, the Protein % would need to be 71% (the result of dividing 26 by 36.6). As you can see this batch of Milk Chocolate Decadence NPRO tested out at nearly 74%, which translates to 27.1g of protein per serving. Enjoy that extra protein!
Lastly every batch is screened for purity, and this is to ensure that there is no microbiological contamination. This is critical, since I think we’ve all experienced what a used shaker bottle can smell like if it’s not washed out right away. Exposure to any significant about of moisture can result in bacterial growth. You can see that N-PRO is screened for against a series of different potentially dangerous contaminants to ensure freshness, purity and a stable shelf life through the expiry.
Overall you can see the extreme care, detail and testing that goes into every batch of not only N-PRO, but every ANS Performance product. We strive to be the brand that is synonymous with quality, elite performance, and efficacious products. So N-JOY the taste, N-HANCE your gains, and rest assured your choice was the right one with N-PRO.

Bought this cause anyone has been talking about it, tried with Milk and some ice. Texture came out nice and thick, Absolutely love it ! I take it in the mornings and it keeps me nice and full for the rest of the day !
My sister bought me a vanilla flavored one. Vanilla is normally not my first choice in terms of protein powder as most of them tastes really fake. But this has to probably be one of the best vanilla protein I've ever tried ! Much better and not as sweet as ON
Bought this after reading all the fantastic reviews on bodybuilding.com about it. Didn't want to bring my hopes up and Was expecting a fake artificial taste that most protein seem to have, but was surprisingly VERY VERY YUMMY !! Easy to mix in my oats or to just take on its own. Saw GREAT results in terms of my body composition after taking this for a month. Also keeps me full for the whole day. Glad I bought this and will be looking to try out the cookies and cream next!
Was pretty impressed with the samaple of n pro milk chocolate decadence in one of my orders from xplossive supplements. Was very amazed on how easy it was to shake in my shaker . The taste of chocolate reminded me of other whey's that I have used in the past that have chocolate in them.
I give this an overall low score because they try and fool you with providing a certificate of analysis and say you are getting more protein, but they are giving less and are not intrepreting the data correctly. I'm a lab chemist and test supplements for a living. Here's the correct interpretation of the data.
the 'dry basis' for protein is an important thing to notice here, that means those results are based on taking the moisture out of the powder. it may be hard for some poeple to believe but its not uncommon for a protein powder to contain 5-7% water. so to interpret that data correctly you have to account for that 6% water by subracting it out you do that simply by multiplying 94% x 36.6 serving size = 34.4g, now this is your serving size adjusted for being on a 'dry basis', now you can multiply this by the results, 34.4 x .7396 = 25.4 g of protein per serving and not the extract protein they calculated. that is whey terms like 'dry basis' or 'as is' are used in analytical data analysis as many powders do contain water, yet can only be accurately measure once all that water has been removed.
I normally don't put companies on blast and having 25.4 g of protein when claiming 26g is respectable, but their inability to interpret the data correctly shows me they don't have anyone working at their company that can interpret data correctly and doubt they test every lot, probably just a couple and incorrectly thought they had a super high protein and their hands an decided to use as a marketing too and either knowingly or sadly not knowing have mispresented the data. In any case hope this clears things up for some people how to analyze a Certificate of Analysis, even ANS Performance employees.
Got my hands on the new cookies and cream flavour this morning and dam!! Taste sooo good cant wait for my post workout shake now!!
ANS N PRO have it nailed when it comes to flavouring and consistency - their protein isnt thin and isnt overly thick either - gentle on the stomach too!
I wouldn't use any other protein - NPRO is definitely a staple supplement in my cupboard
Just tried the NEW COokies and CREAM and OMG!!!!!
Nailed the texture, taste and same formula.
Finally a Cookies and Cream thats just that (not a grey weird vanilla like others Ive had).
Good balance of sweetness (not over kill) so I can have several times a day!
This stuff- mmmm yea!! Choc is amaze, probs nicest choc protein Ive tried (and Im not usually a fan of choc flavoured stuff). Was delish with milk but Im a water girl and it was just right consistency and flavor with water. Mixed easy as every time. Reasons why Id rate this protein above most others:
26 Grams of Protein Per Scoop,
Banned Substances FREE,
5.5 Grams BCAA\'s,
4 Grams Glutamine & Precursors,
Low Fat & Carb & Lactose. And that it tested above label claims on protein content- ANS is a great brand and I love their products. Cant wait to try choc peanut butter!
Have just tried the PB choc of this recently its legit fkn meaaaaan! Put this in milk and you're going to explodeeeeeee with happiness! Have reviewed other flavours earlier on!
When it comes to protein im fairly fussy having tried most of the top brands over the years.
ANS N-PRO stacks well above the rest in terms of flavour, mixability and nutritional contents.
The Chocolate flavour is by far my favourite its a smooth creamy texture and not too strong or sickly which is important if your having up to 3 shakes a day!!
One of the other major factors I consider when considering purchasing whey protein is how easily its cleaned out of your shaker when you are done! I know a lot of other people can feel me on this one, ANS is easily washed out which is a bonus!
You cant go past N-Pro if your after a high quality great tasting protein powder - I even used this right up until the day before my last bodybuilding competition :)
This stuff is epic, everyone i've let sample it loves it, the thick creamy texture makes it epic on oats! The formula is awesome and it's tested at over 100% of protein content per serve of claim. You can't go much better than this! Vanilla is my fav FYI
If you are after one of the best tasting all rounder protein available look no further than ANS N-Pro.
I've tried their creamy milkshake vanilla, Milk Chocolate Decadence, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Fusion.
Wow. For a stop gap between meals I'll load some of this in a blender with some icecubes and smash it down with some nuts or I add more peanut butter to the peanut butter chocolate flavour. Desired thickness is up to you but with ice it thickens up nicely and when I'm between meals that suits me great.
The peanut butter in it tastes like roasted nuts straight off the tray. Delicious.
Because of the blend of proteins it's suitable and stable for my cooking applications like muffins and pancakes.
Get it in you!!!
ANS Performance N-PRO as per Ingredient profile below.. Features the same sort of Protein formulation which saw the original myofusion saw to almost over take Optimum in popularity before the company sank from bad protein sequels, pretty much tastes identical to the Milk Chocolate Myofusion from way back.. And that's smart because it was one of the most popular tastes ever.
Not to mention it is produced in the exact same manufacturing plant that the first myofusion was produced.
If this means anything I haven't been able to have a chocolate protein since the original myofusion hydro like 3 years ago in my cereal as I'm so fussy.. And I'll use ANS Performance N-PRO Chocolate in my protein it's that good.
Hands down the best Milk Chocolate protein on the market at the moment.. And I've tried a lot of products.
Bought a tub with the amazing deal with free ritual:). I've tried the chocolate flavour and it was nice, not amazing. I bought PB choc and don't like it, its okay but woukdnt pay full price for this, I like the formula and third party tests etc but for the full price and servings, and the fact it's not great tasting I wouldnt but again.
I love the taste and versatility of N-PRO. Whether it's to hit my macros, have a snack, post-workout or even in the evening - the 6 protein source high quality blend has me covered. I crave it every morning and look forward to it as a treat post-workout. Only problem is it doesn't last long in my house, since my wife and kids (yes them too) love it so much and keep stealing scoops!
Overall a solid protein blend to keep your muscle protein synthesis charging throughout the day, Personally I'm not a fan of this chocolate flavour, its not as decadent as the name suggests, all the other boxes in terms of mixability, clean formula and exceptional quality are fully ticked. as a one paragraph review cannot do this product justice a full review of this product can be found here...https://supplementreviews.co.nz/forum/topic/3142-ans-n-bro/#entry76769
Taste 7/10 - Been really looking forward to this one after high praise, but personally, fell a bit flat for me. Yes it was chocolate, wasn't overly sweet or rich. Just 'ok'.
Formula 9/10 - Macros are fairly similar to what you'd expect from most other proteins - 140 cals, 26g protein (slightly higher than an average 24g) 5g sugar, 2g fat. Blend of all sorts of proteins, to be fair I suck at protein types and really not sure at the moment the difference between em all. But, being ANS, safe bet that you are in good hands.
Overall 9/10 I love ANS and would definitely trust this protein. Price wise? Not available yet but picking it wouldn't be cheap.
Thanks xplosiv / supplementreviews.co.nz for the sample.
N-Pro tastes amazing! I wasn't too sure what to expect when I first tried it but this protein tastes great, just like a chocolate milk shake! another great product from ANS! I would recommend this to anyone that is after a quality protein powder.
Best all round protein I've ever had. The taste of chocolate was wow....so good. I can't wait for this stuff to be available. Looks like we have another winning product from ANS Performance. Full review at https://supplementreviews.co.nz/forum/topic/3073-ans-performance-n-pro-protein-powder/
This is amazing. One of the best proteins I have ever tasted, and the best chocolate protein I have had, hands down. The texture is velvety, like a drinkable mousse. The formula is great. Full review here.
Flavour is awesome. Tastes like a chocolate milk when mixed with water. Mixes easy and isn't too thick (like most protein's are now a days)
I'm a pure isolate after training kinda guy but wouldn't have any problem recommending this protein to anyone who wants a good all rounder and certainly where taste is important. I will definitely add this supplement cupboard when it's released. This will NOT disappoint. With egg albumen as one of the protein sources it's kind of unique as most of the other brands (in the path to produce cheap protein I guess) have moved away from it. You are getting a good combination of proteins in the blend.
Even in water tastes like chocolate milk.. would be even more amazing in milk! Easily the best protein powder I've had. No proteiny/chalky after taste. No fillers, no spiking. If your looking for an amazing tasting chocolate protein powder that has varied protein sources without all the added extra crap you find in similar products these days then this should definitely be on your list!
