Product Review: Bodie’z Protein Water
Bodie’z Protein Waters are clear, fruit flavoured drinks boasting 20-30g of whey protein isolate.
These nutrient packed drinks come in three flavours: berry, kiwi and orange.
The Berry and Kiwi options both have 30g of protein and are better options following weight loss surgery. Whilst the orange flavour still contains a whopping 20g of protein, there is added guarana, which may not be suitable if you are medically unstable.
What’s in it?
Essentially these waters combine whey protein isolate with natural flavours, erythritol (a sugar alcohol), stevia (a plant based sweetener), vitamins and minerals. There are no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
How does it stack up nutritionally?
The Kiwi and Berry flavours pack a protein punch at 30g of protein in each 500ml bottle, which is half your minimum daily need. The Orange contains 20g of protein, but remember it also contains guarana, so may not be suitable. The protein is a whey protein isolate, which means it is easy for your body to absorb. There is less than 1g of both sugar and fat and only 547kJ (130cal) per bottle.
I have found other clear protein drinks have an overly sweet taste and funny mouth feel, so was pleasantly surprised that Bodie’z Protein Waters tasted great. The best description I can think of is that they taste like a weak cordial. I conducted a taste test session with our weight loss surgery team and everyone agreed that they are very easy to drink.
What I love about it post weight loss surgery
- These clear drinks are a great alternative to having to rely on milky protein drinks.
- They are easy to sip on, helping you get closer to your protein target and helping to keep you hydrated.
- They are perfect for the post op recovery phase, or longer term if you struggle to meet your protein needs.
These waters retail between $5.00 – $6.00 per bottle (depending how and where you purchase). Yes, that may sound expensive, but compare that to your juice bar smoothie or café latte. The difference is you are getting a lot better value for money to meet your post surgery targets.
