SF Nutrition Lean Whey Protein

TRI247 VERDICT: The SF Nutrition Be Lean whey protein came in dark chocolate flavour. A good shake in water or milk/milk alternative, juice or smoothie yielded a very agreeable mix.

Developed to help with weightloss whilst promoting muscle growth. Their website offers some tasty looking recipes (, including some easy to make, post work out “Little Balls of Joy” and the pancakes look simple enough to make.

The Be Lean Dark Chocolate passed the Ready Brek taste test admirably!

AVROX EI8HT Energy from £4.99 and also subscription

AVROX say: Performance and wellness drinks contain a blend of vitamins, electrolytes and sugar.

We have re-imagined functional beverages and focused on something totally unique – an oxygen delivery technology. Remember waiting for hours for the benefits of your functional drink to kick in? Forget it. We’ve developed a game-changing product that means you’ll see real benefits in minutes, not hours. Real as in we’ve had them independently tested by a university, not in a back office by an intern.

Key Features:

  • Patented formula that enhances oxygen delivery to muscles
  • Developed with Oxford University
  • Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free
  • Mix easily with water
  • Caffeine (80mg per serving)

TRI247 VERDICT: AVROX EI8HT comes in two forms (they do have other products in their range), recovery and energy developed in collaboration with Oxford University. The patented encapsulation technology enables the delivery of oxygen, claiming a huge array of benefits to the user in terms of performance.

We sampled the energy formula. Mixing with water and shaking for 30 seconds to activate the drink which then needs to be consumed 15 minutes prior to your activity. The shaking creates a head of tiny micro-bubbles so you need to allow space in your bottle for this activation through vigourous shaking.

The flavour was very agreeable, a crisp taste. I was immediately transported back to childhood days and Swizzel’s Double Dip cherry flavour. Sadly only one tasty energy sachet a day is suggested!

The sachets are available in packs of two sachets or in larger quantities through their monthly subscription service from two to 28 sachet delivery sizes. The subscription service looks like a great idea and there are various order sizes to select once you have decided your typical monthly consumption levels.
