Reactiv Supplements Pure NZ Whey

Okay, I’m pretty excited and hesitant to try this one. Excited, because its interesting… Locally made, hormone free, and unflavoured. Hesitant, because, well, unflavoured.

I mixed this one up with water because it just felt weird mixing it up with milk. That, and I suspect milk has been upsetting my tummy lately. I’ll try it with milk next time.

Flavour: Have you ever had milk made from milk powder? And then added too much water? This is what it tastes like. There’s that weird “rubbery” flavour which I think I will just have to accept as just the way whey tastes. It’s not delicious. It is drinkable.

It leaves an aftertaste like cheese (reminds me specifically of Kapiti Ramara, a stinky but yummy washed rind).

Texture/mixing: It mixes really well (with water). No lumps at all.

Other thoughts: I would probably drink this again. I’d experiment with adding cocoa powder, cinnamon, etc, or using milk instead of water. It would make a really nice protein smoothie as it’s a pretty mild milky flavour.
