Mars® Protein is a protein powder which is designed to taste just like the original Mars® chocolate bar.
Unlike the indulgent chocolate treat, the protein powder is low-calorie and high in protein, and designed to help improve muscle recovery and size.
The famous Mars® chocolate bar has roots that go all the way back to 1932, and have recently entered the fitness market with a high-protein bar, as well as a flavoured protein powder.
Whey Protein Concentrate
Whey is the primary protein found in cow’s milk.
It’s a fast-absorbing protein, which is well-known for its ability to improve the rate of muscle growth and repair (1).
Whey protein concentrate is a roughly-refined form of whey, which has some of the fats and carbohydrates removed.
Whey Protein Isolate
Whey protein isolate is a more refined version of whey, which eliminates almost all of the extra fat and carbohydrates.
It’s usually about 90% protein by weight.
Hydrolysed Whey Protein Isolate
Hydrolysed whey is the fastest-absorbing of the three types in this formula.
It’s partially broken down into smaller building blocks, which are more rapidly taken up by the body.
Who Takes It?
Athletes wanting a delicious but reliable protein powder may enjoy using Mars® Protein.
How to Take
Mix 1 scoop (35g) with 250mL water or milk, and consume post-workout, or as desired.
Excess protein consumption may worsen an existing kidney or liver condition.
- Tastes great
- Has the same protein content as most basic protein powders on the market.
- Although the taste is popular, users say it doesn’t resemble that of the snack bar
- More expensive than other protein powders.
On a supplement level, Mars® Protein is a regular protein powder, with an above average taste.
Although the general feedback is that it tastes great, users mention that it doesn’t taste much like a Mars® bar – which was kind of the point of the product!
It has a typical amount of whey protein per serve, and you can expect similar results to a regular protein powder.
