Nice taste with no chemical or artificial taste.
The chocolate flavour and caramel flavours are both nice. My last order i picked salted caramel but sadly was sent caramel. Hopefully next time yous get it right :) mixes fast with no clumps left and very smooth to drink. I find its nicer when u mix half water half milk. Been using this protein a couple years and always recommend to friends n family
Salted caramel, been waiting for a caramel flavored protein. Thankfully it's zealea who delivered.
Tastes nearly identical to dymatize gourmet vanilla, but less artifical and a slight salty taste.
Highly recommended 9/10
Bought some Zealea whey purley for the Caramel offerings as there arent many caramel proteins out there and its my favourite all time flavour so just had to go for it.
Straight off the bat, the flavour is WEAK and a wee bit disappointing but with 3 scoops and 200ml of water its not too bad. Even better with a scoop of glycofuse in it which is how I have it after training each morning. It's not overly sweet either which is what caramel is pretty much all about, not a bad thing though as protein shakes that are too sweet tend to get a bit sickly and you can go off them pretty quickly.
Profile is good with 24 grams protein per serve and less than 2grams each of fats and carbs.
Texture is fine but just dam thin. Hardly needs to be shaken to mix up. Pretty much instantized.
Value - superthriftmegavalue here at 2kg for $79 it's one of the best value offerings out there. Not so cheap if triple scooping it (NB standard serve is 2 scoop) but you can do that at this price.
Overall pretty good just wish someone could really nail the caramel flavour.
Great product.. been one of my top proteins to use. Mixes great and chocolate is favourite flavour
Solid formula, no junk and unbeatable price. Having 2 shakes a day I often have 1 fancy protein and then a bag of good ol zealea. My fave is wildberry which has a subtle but not too sweet, not too watery flavour. Mixes well every time in my shaker with water. Cant wait to try the caramel flavour. At such a cheap price but yum and solid protein content - this will always be a go to for me
Good NZ made protein powder that can be trusted, minimal rubbish added. Taste is pretty good but if you have a sweet tooth it may not be sweet enough for you. A good no nonsense protein powder.
If you want a well priced whey protein that you can trust, look no further. Clean, straight up formula with no fillers or junk. NZ based company too!
Mixes easily with water or milk. Not really thick.
Wide variety of flavours. Chocolate is pretty good. Not out of this world, but nothing wrong with it.
I'd happily purchase again.
10/10 not many sup companies are doing unflavoured whey powders and in conjunction with the thermadex deal this really swayed me to try this product.. Im really happy I made the purchase as zealea is a great basic whey powder without all the bulls#1t... its also no frills & easy on the wallet and also has a good combo of bccas, low fat, low carb, why would you need anything else?
Great stuff, good price, amazing mixing plus am enjoying the formula as it leaves out the unnecessary x,y,z ingredients.
Van and mixed Berry are my fav so far.
I bought banana flavour, taste is good but nowhere as strong or thick as the Superquad I've been using - but thats because this protein has so little additives. May be worth mixing into less water or milk.
Mixes perfectly in a shaker which is good.
Formula is good, pretty much pure whey protein with no added aminos or ingredients, awesome value for money
This is a great value for money protein which mixed well. I have it with water and compared to other similarly priced proteins, this one tastes good. Doesn't have too much of a 'fake' taste. My only complaint is its quite thin even with milk and the chocolate flavour I had isn't strong (..Chocolate lover!) I've just bought another pack in vanilla flavour for mixing into smoothies, so that speaks for itself.
Have been on their choc for years but recently tried the berry for the first time after a mate recommended it, was really good-nice smell and taste.
mixing is amazing witch is great in morning when in a rush plus no scraping whey globs from side of shaker also this whey never seems to give me that sluggish stomach feeling (if anyone knows what im talking about)
Consistency is thinner than some products, apparently its because they avoid additives such as xhantham thickeners to keep the protein levels high witch I guess is a good thing as protein is my no1 goal.
I bought me a bag of Cookies n Cream zealea. Taste was 7/10, was maybe a little more caramely than cookies and cream but not bad. It mixed well 9/10, but was very thin even with minimal water and 3 scoops. So wasn't quite as pleasant as some of the thicker shakes where you feel more like you are having a food item vs a drink (and would have tasted nicer too if thicker). Has pretty good profile though, deece whack of protein
Some of the flavours are overly weak (Choc
Big ups to Varis for recommending Banana
Taste - 10/10
Best banana protein ive ever tried.not a fake chemical flavour.
Tasted nice mixed with the Choc also.
Mix - 10/10
Consistency was amazing,didn't expect it from a cheap protein.
Nice and smooth.
Profile - 9/10
Good amount of protein and BCAA's etc bog standard really.
Price - 10/10
Cheap with quite alot of servings,definitely my new protein.
Just a great find :D
Got the chocolate one it mixes really well and tastes even better. Personally this is my choice from now on but may try other flavours. Highly recommend this product.
Awesome mixing capability!
I got banana favour and it has a nice taste.
Taking before and after workout, hoping for great results.
Dont usually do reviews buy am really happy with this product esp for the price.The Mixability is unreal-mixes like some of the products that are 3x the price witch makes things easy in the morning.taste is nice not heavy,sickly and overboard or fake tasting like others also no lingering chemical taste that seemed to get from the previous whey brand I was using.
Great Product, Thought i only buy the Chocolate flavour. Mixes very very well, unlike others iv tried int he past. Great Amino Profile. The Team have definaltey done their research. Always recccomend the brand to friends. Hoping they start selling it in tubs.
Having never tried flavoured whey outside of the usual chocolate/vanilla/c'n'c; I decided to give 'Mixed Berry' a try.
Results - Good
I add whey to my oats ( I don't really have whey by itself anymore ) and it definitely tastes/smells great. Cheaper than adding actually berries in. (lol)
- Includes Scoop
- Tastes/smells good
- High protein content (77.8g/100g for Mixed Berry)
- Mixes well
- NZ made product (unsure if it is NZ made whey)
Have only tasted the vanilla so far but find it a very subtle flavour that is almost lacking to be honest. Standard mix of 2 scoops plus 250ml water is extremely weak but 3 heaped scopes with 250ml is ok and what I will be using from now on.
Mixes up pretty easily even with the 3 heaped scoops. 2 scoops dissolved pretty much without shaking. The end result is still a pretty thin protein shake but it does the job and goes down ok.
May use again given its pretty good value even at the higher dosage.
Loved the Berry Flavour. Was surprised at this being so clear/thin/watery even with milk. at first i wasn't used to it, but I really enjoyed it and it was very easy to drink. Actually preferred a thinner and less creamy protein shake today after my workout. Also kept me from eating until hours later (this probably had something to do with popping a Detonate first thing). I really liked the texture and flavour. Yum Yum. Do they make these in RTD's? IN.
Mixed well in my SmartShake. A few little clumps as you can see but nothing to write home about. (Always lots to write to Supplement Reviews about though!). Still giving it a deliciously high score on consistency.
I'm still getting to know what all those crazy named ingredients mean. I'm new and still learning. However, I see it's low carb, low sugar, and good BCAA's. Not the highest protein content per serve in comparison to other proteins...but that is easily forgiven I feel with it's many other great qualities.
"Zealea Whey is ..... formulated to give 100% Whey without any extras.
Contains 97% Whey protein Concentrate, that provides 23.4 grams of protein per serve including nearly 6 grams of BCAAs.
All this with only 2 grams of carbs and 2 grams of fat"
REALLY enjoyed this. I kinda went into this thinking nothing would top the protein I am currently using (Gaspari MyoFusion Elite), but I wouldnt hesitate buying this one again. My decision on what to get out of this or the MyoFusion would come down to price and mood on the day when I place my next protein order.
Cheers Xplosiv Supplements for the sample; much appreciated. Love your work.
Annie G out.
This review is with regards to the Banana Flavour of this. Pretty much on the money here for Banana Flavour. I can only describe this as Banana and yum. Not a hint of after taste etc.....Not to sweet. I mixed one sample with 200mls of water. I have given a 9.5 purely based on taste and that it could have been possibly a touch sweeter, however with Milk this could do it? Or with two scoops this could do it. For the price of this Protein this flavour is bloody good!
This overall is a great looking protein. Really well priced at $79.90. Yes there are better tasting proteins but they are more expensive, will have more fillers and other stuff in them and will not be made in NZ. I think this would be a great staple for any one wanting to up there protein intake. Choc was good and Vanilla very good and the Banana was BLOODY GOOD! I could easily go through 5lbs of either flavour.
Thanks again for the Sample and the chance to review this product.
I just sampled the vanilla flavour, and wasn't expecting the consistency to as thin as it was, and that was mixed with milk even. Perfect for those who don't like the sweet taste of most protein powders, but unfortunately I'm one of those few who prefer something sweet.
Formula seems great looking at the nutritional facts also.
Chocolate Taste - 8/10
This comes out at an 8 for me. This is not overly chocolately, not overly sweet but actually tastes pretty good. I mixed with 150 mls of water as it was one scoop. I had not real problems with the taste at all. I actually wanted another one after I had finished. Could easily consume a full 5lbs.
Vanillia Taste - 8.5
The vanilla in this protein is good. It is exactly that. Vanilla!. Not french vanilla, or nutty, to sweet or not to sweet. I think it is a very solid Vanilla. Again was mixed with 150 mls of water exactly as it was one scoop. Could easily consume a tub of this.
Overall - 9.5/10

Chocolate Taste 4/10
Vanilla Taste 3/10
Very thin/watery. The flavour of both was very faint but Vanilla had almost no flavour for me. I mixed to the specified 250ml of water and about 2.5-3 scoops. Have yet to try with milk, that may thicken it and/or strengthen the flavour.
Mixed in a shaker with no ball or mesh. Pretty good but had a few clumps. No left over residue.
Good amount of BCAA's and very low fat/carb
The flavour and thickness mark it down for me. I prefer a thicker consistency and stronger flavour. That said for the price you cant really complain for the formula. I have no problem drinking it its just not something I savour. Flip side of that is you can chug it straight after a workout in 10 seconds.
Was going to mark this a 9 as I'm not overly keen on the chocolate taste but hell, the consistency is FLAWLESS, and with the great price and formula, this is a winner. Time to stock up!
Never seen such a cheap product mix so well omg! FAULTLESS
Great texture, very creamy - nice mild flavour ( I had the vanilla ) will definitely be buying this again
Good product - easy mixing and nice taste, good price.
Good product - easy mixing and nice taste, good price.
When I first tried this I didn't expect much in terms of taste as it's very good value for money and you don't usually get much in terms of taste out of a pure whey product.
But I was really surprised after speaking to the formulator of this product apparently it took him 2 years to perfect the flavor which is great as it's cheap!
