This is a very specific Power Rangers collab too – it’s with the Black Power Ranger, who brings his unique Power Axe, Mastodon Dinozord, and Lion Thunderzord to the fight.

This article includes our tasting review of this flavor (hint: it’s incredible) and gabs a bit about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a 90s pop culture hit. We also discuss the hydrolyzed whey protein isolate that makes this clear-setting protein — and it’s unique fruity flavors — possible.

What are the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers?

You weren’t around for the 90s?! If not, don’t worry – this was a hit American superhero TV show that ran for three seasons from 1993-1996. It was adapted from Japanese cinematic and fighting styles, and is showcased by the surprisingly heavy metal theme song:

A grape collab with the Black Power Ranger

However, this isn’t a flavor collaboration with the entire series — it’s a collab with the Black Power Ranger, who is played by actors Walter Emanuel Jones and Johnny Yong Bosch.

The Black Ranger is awesome because he controls the Power Axe and pilots the Mastodon Dinozord, the Lion Thunderzord, the Frog Ninjazord, and the Black Shogunzord, according to Wikipedia.[1]

Clearly you can see why Myprotein chose this ranger above all else — only a brand with powerful flavors and potent supplement formulas is strong enough to wield the Power Axe!

More Info on Myprotein’s Clear Whey Isolate

If you’re here because you’re a huge Power Rangers fan, but aren’t sure what this unique protein is — or how they can make a grape flavored protein actually work — then read on:

With Myprotein’s Clear Whey Isolate protein powder, the brand’s formulators use only hydrolyzed whey protein isolate as the protein source. This unique type of protein allows it to settle translucently!

Your standard whey protein isolate (WPI) powder undergoes multiple filtration processes that remove most of the carbs, fat, milk sugars (lactose), and other impurities like ash. Once it’s to the level of whey protein isolate, it’ll be 90% protein by weight (as opposed to whey protein concentrate, which maxes out at 80% protein by weight and has a bit more lactose inside).

Hydrolyzed whey protein isolate: a faster-digesting option

Hydrolyzed whey protein isolate takes the “isolation” a step further, and it’s a step needed to get that clear effect that makes a protein thin enough to allow for fruity flavors. To do that, the protein undergoes a pre-processing technique known as hydrolysis, where enzymes are added to the WPI to “pre-digest” them, breaking long protein chains into shorter ones that are faster and easier to digest and absorb.[2]

Thankfully, the amino acid profile is still sound. As most know, used appropriately and with a proper diet and training program, whey protein can assist in significantly improving body composition (more muscle, less fat) as well as strength in men and women.[3-6]

Those same rules still apply with hydrolyzed whey protein isolate, which still has all nine essential amino acids. Whey proteins in general all have high amounts of leucine, a branched chain amino acid that is the primary activator of mTOR to initiate muscle protein synthesis.

The end result? Hydrolyzed whey protein isolate helps get the essential amino acids into your bloodstream faster since there’s less work for your gut to do, and that leads to a quicker insulin response,[7] faster reload of glycogen stores,[8] and can drive better and faster recovery for athletes.[9]

With the thinner consistency that this process yields, Myprotein was able to get away from those thick chocolate / vanilla shakes and move towards juices and “cocktails” that are more on the fruity side! They’re fantastic when served ice cold, and this grape flavor is extremely well done.

Myprotein sweetens it with sucralose and acesulfame potassium (Ace-K), adds their flavor system, and you’re still left with a sugar-free protein drink that doesn’t drink like a standard protein shake! It’s somewhere in between an amino acid workout beverage / sports drink and a protein shake, which gives some great flavoring opportunities that don’t have chocolate inside.

Go Go Power Rangers!

    Go Go Power Rangers!

    Rangers. You possess powers so that you may protect the earth. Use them to defend, never to attack. To ensure justice, never for vengeance. To preserve righteousness, never for selfish glory. Remember this and they will protect you forever.

    This launch was a fun flashback to the 90s — which was a great time to be a kid or teenager. We forgot how metal the original Power Rangers intro theme song was, so this experience was a plus right from the start.

    However, it’s all about the flavor — the collab can be a 10/10 on the nostalgic scale, but if the flavor doesn’t add up, it’s all for nothing. That’s not a concern here, though, because the grape flavor is absolutely fantastic. If you like grape bubblegum flavors, you should check this one out, Power Rangers fan or not.

    Go Go Power Rangers indeed. The 90s ruled, and so does this flavor.
