You can make £20,000 as a protein taster for an online fitness marketplace.
The job advert states that the perfect candidate will have a passion for fitness and nutrition, good knowledge of supplements and protein, a keen sense of taste and exercises regularly.
The job will require testing the marketplace’s new ranges of protein powders and feeding back on taste, texture, functionality and value for money.
Like food tasters, someone who is a protein taster has to try out various supplements – particularly protein products – for taste, effectiveness, look and feel and other aspects that interest the company’s customers.
The protein taster is generally required to test at least one product per month, but could be needed to try a few each month.
It may also be required that the protein taster samples supplements and other fitness nutrition products as well.
Right now, the fitness supplements company BlueAppleFitness.com is looking for a professional protein taster to sample and feedback on the new protein products it sells on the site.
The job role will include receiving new products through the post, and trialling them for two weeks at a time to then submit a full review back to BlueAppleFitness.

protein taster application process
To apply, candidates must submit 500 words on why they think they’d be a good fit for the job, along with supplements they already use and love, how often they exercise and their social media handles.
Shortlisted candidates will have to take a general multiple-choice test on nutrition and exercise in the New Year to determine that they have the right level of knowledge.
The successful candidate must feedback on the product’s taste, texture, functionality and value for money. In terms of functionality, this specifically refers to whether it ‘does what it says on the tin’. The protein tester can request to trial the product for longer than two weeks, to reach a better judgement, if required.
Jyoti Mehan, founder of BlueAppleFitness.com says, “We pride ourselves on offering our customers the very best products, so before we start selling them on the site, our protein taster will make sure that it’s authentic. Therefore it’s imperative that the taster exercises regularly, as many protein supplements and other fitness nutrition products are most effective when the consumer leads an active lifestyle.
“The fitness market is saturated with products that are misleading and gimmicky, I want to avoid having such products on BlueAppleFitness.com, and the only way to cut the wheat from the chaff is to have someone who would be a consumer of it normally, test it and give honest feedback.”
