Here’s our Jocko Molk protein powder review. Protein supplements in general are amongst the most effective natural ways you can up your fitness game.
Building muscle and staying lean requires you to consume a specific amount of protein every day.
Everyone who is seriously involved in the fitness lifestyle is aware that this is no easy task.
Often, our lifestyles prevent us from getting the optimal amount of nutrients we need through food. As a result, supplementation is important if you’re looking to get the best results. Based on my own training & coaching experience, I’d go as far as to say that lack of adequate protein is one of the main reasons why people struggle to sculpt the physiques they want.
Protein powders are safe, effective, and well-researched. If you’re serious about your lifestyle, there is no reason not to include one in your supplement stack. You may say, though, not all protein powders are the same. Which is absolutely correct.
There is a lot of junk out there that costs a lot, but doesn’t deliver on its promises.
Today, we spared you the legwork. Our team will be looking at the Jocko Molk protein powder to see if it is of good quality, how it tastes, how effective it is for building muscle, its nutritional content, and how it compares to other protein supplements on the market in terms of results and value for money.

About Jocko Molk
Jocko Molk (aka, Jocko Mölk) is a protein powder consisting of whey concentrate, whey isolate, egg protein, and micellar casein. While it is not as rapidly absorbed as pure whey isolate, Jocko Molk’s key advantage is that it fuels your growth and muscle recovery all day long.
- Additionally, Molk contains a blend of digestive enzymes and probiotic bacteria (Lactobacillus acidophilus) to not only improve the digestion and utilization of protein, but also your overall gut health.
Jocko Molk is an all-natural protein powder, sweetened with zero calorie monk fruit, containing only 1 net carb and 0 added sugar. This makes it excellent for people who want zero artificial stuff in their protein powders.
Sounds good, but how good is it really?
Let’s take a closer look at the serving directions and taste of Jocko Molk, before moving onto the arguably most important part: nutrition facts and ingredient analysis.
How to Take Jocko Molk
The official serving recommendations for Jocko Molk is to mix 1 scoop (29.2g) of the protein powder daily with 6-8oz of your beverage of choice. Obviously, you may decide to double scoop it, but it’s worth reminding yourself that it can never quite replace the protein from real food!
How does Jocko Molk protein powder taste?
To start with, here are all of the available flavors of Jocko Molk:
- Vanilla Gorilla
- Banana Cream Bomber
- Strawberry Slayer
- Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Mint Chocolate
- The Darkness
In our experience, all 6 Jocko Molk flavors taste excellent. There is no trace of artificial flavoring in the product, nor does it leave any weird aftertaste. That being said, our favorite one was “The Darkness”, with “Vanilla Gorilla” being close second. Both of these have rich flavors, however, as huge chocolate fans, The Darkness was the one we kept coming back to the most.

Ingredients in Jocko Molk
Jocko Molk consists of the following ingredients:
- Protein Blend (Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, Miccelar Casein, Egg Albumin) – 22g of protein per scoop
- Natural Flavoring
- Xanthan Gum
- Mong Fruit Extract (sweetener)
The protein in Molk is a high-quality soy- and RBGH-free grass-fed protein. It’s top quality, but still not as good as some of the plant-based protein powders we’ve reviewed.
If you can tolerate whey protein, then you will find Jocko Molk to be fast-absorbing thanks to its whey isolate & concentrate duo. However, it also contains casein and egg protein which digest slower, feeding your muscles over a longer period. Coupled with the digestive enzymes and amino-acid-rich probiotics, you’ve got a fairly well-rounded protein shake.
As for ingredient quality, Jocko Molk is produced in cGMP and FDA-compliant facilities, then further tested in a 3rd party laboratory. We can’t complain much here!
All in all, it’s a solid protein formula with some added enzymes for better digestion, though, still not the best we’ve seen.
Customer Reviews – What do Others Say?
All of Jocko’s products generally boast good reviews, and Jocko Molk is no exception. It’s a top notch whey protein supplement that works well for people who can tolerate dairy and eggs. Sadly, some people didn’t realize they couldn’t tolerate it well, so there are a few negative reviews too, mostly complaining about bloating and digestive upset.
Side Effects – Is Jocko Molk Safe?
Jocko Molk will be safe for most healthy individuals who can tolerate whey protein. If not, it can cause bloating, gas, indigestion, diarrhea, and acne amongst others. In which case, it’s better to check vegan protein alternatives (some of which are supported by research to at least work just as well, in some cases better than whey).
Is Jocko Molk good?
We think Jocko Molk is an excellent protein supplement. It contains 4 high quality forms of protein, including egg protein, whey isolate & concentrate, and casein. Such a formulation allows for a rapid absorption into working muscles, while also providing some slower-acting protein that feeds your muscles throughout the day. The Jocko Molk formula is augmented with probiotics and enzymes to help you better digest the proteins, but that said, it’s still not a great option for people with whey intolerances.
The price of $44.95 per tub (29 servings) is quite steep but the premium quality and 6 great-tasting, all-natural flavors make it a little less eyewatering!
Would we say Jocko Molk is the best protein powder we’ve seen? Not quite. Although good, you can definitely find protein supplements at this price range that offer more bang for your buck. Especially in terms of protein content and amount per serving, with fewer calories.
