Vital Strength in Australia has jumped on the clear and refreshing trend or sub-category of protein powder with Protein Water, which is a title we’ve seen used by several other companies across the industry for the same type of supplement. The well-established brand already has plenty of business in the protein market with the likes of the whey isolate 100% WPI+, the plant-based Premium Plant, the high-calorie Hardgainer Mass, and the creatine-reinforced Sport Performance Protein.
Protein Water from Vital Strength takes an approach we’ve seen a few others go with, where instead of relying entirely on whey isolate or hydrolyzed whey to provide the protein, you get collagen, although, on this occasion, it is a blend of whey isolate and collagen. The two sources combine to provide 20g of protein a serving alongside a lean 1.5g of carbohydrates with only 400mg of that sugar, an almost non-existent amount of fat at 200mg, and a low-calorie count of 89.
The big catch with Vital Strength’s Protein Water, and with the many other clear and refreshing protein powders out there, is it’s exclusively available in fruity flavors with two to choose from in Tropical and Lemon Lime. The supplement is out and available in Australia at a direct price of $53.99 (35.19 USD), which isn’t bad; however, you don’t get all that many servings a tub at 14, compared to the 25 to 30 you get in your typical 2lb.
