Pros and Cons of Cheap Protein Supplements on Amazon


  • the sale price is amazing for this product

  • the protein content is very high per serving so it would be very easy to get to your protein goal with this brand


  • It does not mix well in a shaker cup so you will need to use a blender. I normally use a blender so this doesn't affect me but i know a lot of people like to have protein on the go and this makes it a little difficult

  • It tastes synthetic, very artificial

  • Carbs are high, a high number of people are on low carb diets of some sort so having any carbs in your protein powder is likely a downfall

  • Its sweetened with sucralose which is an artificial sweetener

Conclusion: The price is amazing for this product but unfortunately there are too many negatives about it. The taste is not very good in my opinion and the calories and carb content is too high.

Vega Protein & Greens Chocolate (16 Servings, 1.15 lb) - Plant Based Protein Powder, Keto-Friendly, Gluten Free, Non Dairy, Vegan, Non Soy, Non GMO

Servings: 16

Sale Price: CDN$ 19.97 ($1.24 per scoop) Regular Price: CDN$ 23.97 ($1.49 per scoop)


  • Its a vegan/vegetarian option

  • this is sweetened with Stevia which is a healthier sugar substitute

  • since this is plant based - its lighter and easier to digest

  • the fiber and vegetable content makes it a healthier and more balanced alternative

  • low in calories so this is a great choice for weight loss


  • Even though stevia is a healthier option, it can still give you the artificial taste and unfortunately it does that with this protein powder

  • Being a plant based protein powder it does taste a little chalky and sandy

  • the price is a little higher per scoop

Conclusion: This protein powder is a great option if you need to get some extra nutrients in. Which is most of us on a regular basis. Instead of having to take a separate green juice, all you need to do is take this protein and kill two birds with one stone. Unfortunately the taste isn't amazing. If you can get used to the taste then this is a very beneficial protein powder.

Six Star 100 Whey Protein Powder Plus Creatine Monohydrate Muscle Builder,32G Protein 7.4G BCAA,Triple Chocolate,18 Servings

Servings: 18.5

Price: CDN$ 23.97 ($1.33 per scoop)


  • Very high in protein

  • Mixes really well even in a shaker cup

  • tastes really good


  • price per scoop is a little high

  • calories and carbs are also higher on this product

  • lacks any nutrients

  • sweetened with sucralose

Conclusion: This product is very high in protein, the Triple Chocolate flavor tastes very good. Even though they used sucralose - i do not get an artificial taste with it. However it is very high in calories so i would not take this if i was trying to lose weight. But it definitely has a place for maintaining weight and building muscle.

LeanFit | Canadian Whey Protein Powder | Keto Low-Carb Shake with BCAAs | Chocolate, 1Kg

Servings: 32

Price: CDN$ 29.99 ($0.93 per scoop)


  • Low calorie protein powder

  • The price per scoop is the lowest so far

  • Very low in carbs - would work for Keto or any low carb diet.

  • They use real cocoa powder for the chocolate taste and no added natural/artificial flavors


  • tastes a little bland

  • it is sweetened with sucralose unfortunately

Conclusion: The nutritional facts are great on this product and this appears to be the best deal for protein but unfortunately the taste does not measure up. If you are strictly trying to just have a quick way to get your protein in and the taste doesn't matter to you then this is the best deal for you.

MuscleTech pro series whey protein powder, chocolate, 2 pound

Servings: 25.5

Price: CDN$ 29.97 ($1.17 per scoop)


  • Mixes very well

  • low in carbs and reasonably low in calories

  • tastes good if only mixed with water

  • price is good for the amount of servings


  • Uses sucralose as the sweetener

  • can taste too sweet at times if adding it to smoothies due to the sucralose

  • uses artificial flavors

Conclusion: This product is one of the better tasting ones if you have a sweet tooth. It does taste too sweet at times if mixed with fruit and other ingredients that are already sweet. The nutritional value is pretty decent and the price is on point.
