What is a protein water drink?

Protein water is a combination of protein powder and water. It can be sold premade and packaged or easily made at home. Not only can it boost your macros, but it also contributes to your daily water, protein and caloric intake.

While whey is the most common protein used in Clear Protein and Protein Water, there are loads of vegan alternatives for those trying to avoid dairy So if creamy shakes aren’t your thing, Protein Water is the perfect alternative.

What is Clear Protein?

Prefer a juicy shake to a creamy one? Then Clear Protein has got you covered. While Impact Whey has a slight protein advantage (1g) over Clear Whey, Clear wins on calories with just 84* per serving. So if you're aiming for a calorie deficit, Clear could be the way to go.

What does protein water do?

As with all high-protein supplements, protein water helps you to grow and keep muscle mass. Plus, depending on which protein water you go for, you’ll be getting essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids. For example, if you go for the Vegan Protein Water, an premixed protein drink, you’ll be getting a range of B vitamins as well as 10g of protein per serving.

With protein water containing Whey Protein Isolate, this contributes to maintaining and the growth of muscle mass. But that’s not all. Protein Water doesn't only consist of protein; it also contains essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, D, B16 and B12. These vitamins help your body to absorb any macronutrients you consume quickly and make sure they are used by the body as well.

Will protein water break a fast?

If you’re intermittent fasting, you won’t be eating or drinking anything during your fasting period besides water. So unfortunately, protein water doesn’t fall into that fasting window.

Protein Water contains calories, and even though it’s not a lot, they’ll still break your fast.
