What’s in this high protein diet whey soup?
Our recipe is simple and clean: natural plant goodness plus European-produced vegetarian heat-stable Whey Protein Concentrate (80%) from grass-fed cows with added Organic Brown Rice Protein. It delivers 20g of high quality protein per serving. Plus, it features super-foods broccoli (a great source of Vitamin C, plus folate, phosphorus, selenium and alpha linolenic acid) and seaweed (iodine ⓘ, potassium, magnesium and iron). While power herbs fenugreek and tumeric (with black pepper for absorption) contribute additional health benefits.

Naturally tasty with no additives
The delicious savoury taste of this low carb diet whey protein soup is achieved with zero added salt or sugar or artificial sweeteners (like sucralose or aspartame). Enjoy the lovely creamy texture, knowing there are no thickeners (like guar gum or xanthum gum) or fillers (like microcrystalline cellulose – which is refined wood pulp!) present.
Basically, this protein soup is made with vegetables you’d find in a well stocked fridge (only dehydrated to fit in the pack!), with quality whey and rice protein added to boost the nutritional value. This makes it a tasty, all-natural, real food option (you can literally taste the natural goodness!). There’s no need to down bloat-inducing, sickly-sweet, fake-tasting ‘dirty’ (check out the ingredients list!) protein shakes or diet shakes anymore.
Full Ingredients List (look – no artificial additives!)

May contain peanut, nut, mustard, gluten, soya, sesame or celery traces.
Why a whey protein soup?
Well, because most the goodness in our diet (besides protein, although more on that later) comes from vegetables. Not vanilla, or chocolate or cookies and cream or Banoffee pie or any of the other sweet ice cream flavours of protein shakes or diet drinks. Generally, vegetables = good; biscuits, baked goods and ice cream = bad. That’s Why we developed a high protein soup, not another shake. Anything that tries to imitate the flavour of those sweet treats either has to be bad for you – because it’s loaded with sugar, salt and fat – or, otherwise, must be ‘faking it’. Faking it means using artificial flavourings, sweeteners and thickeners. Running with a savoury soup means we get to celebrate the flavour and goodness of vegetables and herbs, with no need to resort to fakery. You can literally taste the healthiness of this product!
What’s wrong with protein and diet shakes?
Those supplement shakes may be convenient, but many contain unwanted additives, that don’t belong in a healthy eating regimen. So, while the protein payload they contain is beneficial, the added extras might be actually hindering your progress. Certainly, most have no place in your diet if you’re trying to “eat clean”. Plus, over-reliance on ‘fake’ shakes may cause bloating, irritable bowel or have other unwanted side effects. Find out what’s in protein shakes here.
How is our Broccoli Diet Whey Soup different?
Every vegetable, herb and spice in Eat Clean Diet Whey & Broccoli Soup Mix contributes to the flavour and nutritional value of the drink. Over 30% of the mix is plant based. Dehydrated vegetable (mainly Broccoli) is more than 20% by weight. You probably know that Broccoli is one of the super-foods of healthy eating. We see it so often in healthy eating recipes – both dieting and muscle building. For a veggie, Broccoli delivers a substantial amount protein!
Who should buy this soup mix?
Drinking a mug of Gainsmith Diet Whey Protein Soup Mix normalises upping the protein content in your diet. And, because it’s also low carb, low fat, low salt and ‘clean’, it’s a neutral addition to your diet. It’s not going to dramatically impact calorie counting nor carbohydrate or fat intake. In fact, all it contains lots of – besides protein – is vegetable goodness! It’s great for lunch with your favourite sandwich or jacket potato, or on it’s own. Make it part of your healthy eating regimen if you are:-
- Following a high protein/ low carb diet for weight loss
- Need extra protein to retain or build muscle mass
- Are a vegetarian or flexitarian looking for an extra source of protein

How does our Broccoli Diet Whey Soup taste?
Well, delicious. You have the taste of broccoli, of course. But, the flavour is much more complex than broccoli in a blender. The turmeric, fenugreek, pepper and fennel add earthiness and zing. Plus, there’s a moreish “umami” under layer from the kelp, onion and garlic. While the whey and rice protein make it naturally thicker and creamy. After countless recipe iterations, this is one of our favourite tasting products. It makes getting 20g extra protein a pleasure.
