True Grit Protein offers a blend of several different whey protein forms as its key ingredients. At first glance, True Grit Protein looked like an average whey protein supplement. I took a closer look at everything there is to know about it to see if it is worth recommending.

What’s Inside True Grit Protein?

True Grit Protein’s key ingredients are featured in its protein blend, which contains 50% micellar whey, whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, and whey protein isolate 97% whey protein hydrolysate. The addition of whey protein hydrolysate is nice. However, this form is the lowest listed protein form in the blend, leading me to believe there isn’t as much as the rest.

Both micellar and whey’s structures allow for both quick and slower absorption to maximize total protien uptake. True Grit Protein provides 25 g protein per serving with only 4 g of carbohydrates, which is typical of several protein supplements.

This type of protein is an excellent choice for those looking to either cut weight or maintain a lean physique while training and supplementing. If you are lactose intolerant, though, you’ll still want to notice that this protein blend includes whey protein concentrate.

True Grit Protein comes in a 2 lb. container, provides 26 servings, and retails for $32.99. The price to serving ratio is average of a typical whey protein supplement.

As far as flavor goes, the only flavors they offer are Chocolate Milkshake and Vanilla Ice Cream.

I tried the Chocolate Milkshake flavor with water. It was pretty tasty. The after-taste common with protein drinks wasn’t strong either, which was nice. Overall, it was a good tasting protein.

How Should You Use True Grit Protein?

The manufacturer recommends mixing 1-2 scoops with anywhere from 8-16 oz. of either water or skim milk in a shaker cup, and that you should drink this between major meals and after exercise. The directions also note not to exceed more than 4 scoops in a 24-hour period.

I typically only drink 1-2 protein shakes a day. I like to get the bulk of my protein requirements from meat. Also, I don’t adhere to any specific protein timing. I usually consume a shake later in the evening well after my workout and sometimes in the morning with my breakfast.

So, Is True Grit Protein the Next Big Thing?

Overall, it is a decent whey protein supplement. I am a fan of the low carbs and protein size per serving that True Grit Protein has to offer. The flavor was refreshing. However, not much else stood out.

You can find several competing protein supplements with higher protein quality and more flavor variety. But if you don’t mind the limited flavor options, True Grit Protein may be worth checking out.
