Prozis 100% Whey Prime Protein Supplement Review
[box type=”warning” ]Note.
This analysis refers to the original version of Whey Prime.
Whey Prime 2.0 was recently launched, for which you can find the analysis here.
After analyzing the Impact Whey, we decided to analyze another well-known protein supplement: 100% Whey Prime.
This supplement belongs to the Prozis Sport line from the Prozis brand and is easily found on the store's website and beyond.
It is available in various formats, various flavors, and obviously, various prices.
But, is it a good supplement?
This supplement uses several ingredients, but the most prominent are the Whey Protein Matrix and the Amino Acid Matrix.
You will find the complete list of ingredients here.
The protein sources of this product are as follows:
- Concentrated whey protein
- Whey protein isolate
- Isolated milk protein
- Concentrated milk protein
- Hydrolyzed Whey Protein
- wheat protein
Looking at the ingredients, we immediately conclude that this is not an exclusively Whey protein supplement.
It contains Whey, Casein and the weak wheat protein.
This turns out to be misleading, as the name of the supplement is 100% Whey Prime.
Finally, it includes traditional and normal flavorings, colorings and thickeners.
It doesn't start well.
So let's get to know the nutritional values of Whey Prime.
For each dose of this supplement (25g each scoop) we have 20g of protein.
This means that Whey Prime is made up of 80% of protein, which is a good value.
Regarding carbohydrates and fats, there is not much to say, as they are within what is considered normal in this type of supplements.
However, although these values seem promising, let's analyze the quality of this protein in more detail.
In other words, it's time to take a look at the aminogram.
This is the Whey Prime aminogram and this is where this supplement starts to lose (a lot of) points.
We know that the BCAA's They are the most important amino acids for muscle growth, and Prozis also knows this, which is why they are highlighted in this product.
However, the values of these amino acids in this supplement are present in low amounts.
To be able to have a basis for comparison, we will place it alongside Impact Whey.
|Whey Prime||Impact Whey|
These are the BCAA values present in Whey Prime and Impact Whey.
There is obviously a significant difference, and below is a small, ironic description of the brand in relation to this product.
?Our team of scientists, nutritionists and food engineers went back to square one and rethought the entire whey production process.
Applying modern scientific knowledge and cutting-edge technology, we found new ways to produce whey and optimized the entire process.
The result? Prozis Labs has developed new procedures to make the most efficient protein ever, but with lower production costs.?
?…enriched with BCAA…?
New knowledge and procedures for the most efficient protein ever, enriched with BCAA's.
The most efficient protein ever, enriched with BCAA's and has only 12,72% of these amino acids.
It doesn't seem to be that efficient.
Why does this happen?
One of the reasons why Whey Prime is low in BCAA's is its protein sources, and mainly, the use of wheat protein.
But that's not the only reason.
The other reason is the use of a technique called Aminospiking.
What is Aminospiking?
Aminospiking is when a brand uses amino acids in isolation to increase the total protein value of a supplement.
This allows production costs to be reduced.
For example, if we create a supplement and add 70g of whey protein and 10g of taurine per 100g, we can say on the label that our product is made up of 80g of protein, when in fact only 70g is actually complete protein.
In the case of Whey Prime, the most obvious case is undoubtedly Glycine.
A Impact Whey from Myprotein, for example, it only has 1.14g of Glycine, which is a normal value for a whey protein.
A Elite Whey from Dymatize brings 1.3g of Glycine, perfectly normal.
10.24g of Glycine per 100g.
It seems that Prozis Labs really managed to reduce production costs, it's a shame that they also sacrificed the quality of the protein.
|Cost per dose||0.55?||0.49?||0.38?|
Looking only at the price, we cannot say that it is an expensive protein.
It costs 38 cents per shake in the 2kg version, in other words, a low value.
In smaller versions, the value skyrockets as we can confirm in the table.
However, when we have the chance to buy Impact Whey for a lower price, does it make sense to consider this low-quality supplement?
Note. These are the prices charged by Prozis on the date of analysis.
Where to buy?
You can find this supplement available here and you can still use the code GVIRTUAL to get you 10% discount.
Whey Prime has a good percentage of “protein” and costs 38 cents per shake in the 2kg version.
If we left it at that, it would apparently be a good purchase.
However, if you read the analysis, you know that the story is a little different.
First, it is a supplement that sacrifices protein quality to reduce production costs.
Second, it is not a Whey protein supplement but rather a mixture of several proteins.
Third, the 80% protein on the label is not pure protein 80%, but rather a mixture of complete protein with added amino acids.
As if that weren't enough, it is probably one of the proteins on the market with the lowest percentage of BCAA's.
In short, it's a bad supplement.
