Weight loss protein powders are extremely popular for good reason. Although the Americans are starting to come to the party recently, Australia and New Zealand make some of the best weight loss proteins by far. Two top contenders include Max’s Super Shred from Australia and Horleys Ripped Factors from NZ.

Max's Super Shred vs Horleys Ripped Ingredients

Both Super Shred and Ripped Factors are built on an extremely lean protein base. Ripped uses a single protein source from whey protein isolate (WPI), while Super Shred uses a blend of WPI and calcium caseinate.

Both products also include a range of fat loss ingredients. Ripped Factors contains L-carnitine, caffeine, green coffee extract, and Bioperine. Super Shred also contains L-carnitine and green coffee extract. In addition it also contains Phaseolamin (white kidney bean), green tea extract, forskolin, and guarana among others.

Winner: Max’s Super Shred – for its more comprehensive list of fat burning ingredients

*Caffeine is a component of guarana. The amount of caffeine is low enough for Super Shred to be used during the evening, which would indicate very negligible levels.

Although both products have strengths and weaknesses, Super Shred contains a noticeably purer protein component with over 90% protein and negligible levels of carbs and fats. In addition, its green coffee extract dose gives it the edge in relation to dosing for fat loss.

Winner: Max’s Super Shred

Max's Super Shred vs Horleys Ripped Effectiveness

When it comes to providing energy, Ripped Factors, with its higher caffeine content would be more effective. However, if considering fat loss, it is much more difficult to find a clear winner. Both are effective products that will complement any weight loss program and help users burn fat while maintaining muscle.

Winner: Draw


Max's Super Shred vs Horleys Ripped Taste, Flavour, & Mixability

Both products are easy to mix into a thin and completely clump-free shake. In regards to taste, both are easy to drink and on the blander side. However, Super Shred does have a slightly richer flavour.

Winner: Max’s Super Shred, but only just

 

Max's Super Shred vs Horleys Ripped Price & Value

Both Super Shred and Ripped Factors are considered premium grade protein powders. They are definitely not low budget alternatives. If purchasing the biggest size available, Ripped Factors does provide the superior value for money, at around $67/kg versus the almost $73/kg of Super Shred.

Winner: Horleys Ripped Factors

 

Max's Super Shred vs Horleys Ripped Overall Winner

Despite being closely matched in a lot of categories, Super Shred is the overall winner. With marginal victories in ingredients, dosing, and flavour, Super Shred ended up ahead 3 points to 1, with Ripped Factors being better value for money.

Overall winner: Maxs Super Shred
