THE 100% Premium Whey Protein Plus, as the name implies is a whey protein supplement.
Although there is a 907g version, we will only analyze the 2,267kg format in the strawberry version (the nutritional values and the size of the scoop change slightly from flavor to flavor).
In addition, this analysis will be less complete than usual, as Muscletech does not provide an aminogram of this supplement.
Premium Whey is available in 5 flavors, they are: Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, wafer and banana.
The ingredients used in this formula as a source of protein are concentrated, isolated and hydrolyzed whey protein, in that order.
Right after that in the ingredients table we find maltodextrin, which is strange, a set of isolated amino acids, dubbed the “recovery matrix” brand, with creatine, taurine, leucine, isoleucine, valine and glutamine.
In addition, they also contain isolated glycine (ugh), and traditional flavorings and dyes in flavored whey supplements.
Looking only at the ingredients without knowing the nutritional values, it is imagined that this supplement will have more carbohydrates than it should, but we will confirm later if this is the case.
The official nutritional values announced by the brand on its website are as follows:
Therefore, we have 20g of protein for each dose (31g) and 60.61g for each 100g of product.
These values are low for a protein supplement, a protein content of 60% is actually very low and is the lowest value we have analyzed so far.
As if it wasn't enough to be low in protein, the value of carbohydrates is frightening.
We have 9g of carbohydrates per serving and 27.27g of carbohydrates per 100g of product.
27.27g of carbohydrates for every 100g of a whey protein supplement?
Was Muscletech trying to make a gainer?
As a rule, we find values of 5g to 10g of carbohydrates in protein supplements, now, 27 grams is undoubtedly absurd.
Unfortunately it is not possible for us to assess the quality of the protein contained in this product, as Muscletech does not provide the amino acid profile of this supplement.
Despite this, we will make some observations.
Although the main source of protein in this supplement is of good quality (whey protein), not all of the protein on the label is whey protein.
That is, the so-called recovery matrix that includes Creatine, Taurine and other amino acids, are counted as protein, when, in fact, they are only isolated amino acids and not complete protein.
It is impossible to say to what extent this impairs the quality of this supplement, as there is no amino acid profile.
However, the protein content is already low and adding to that the fact that some of this protein is only a few isolated amino acids, we risk saying that the The quality of this supplement leaves much to be desired.
Although the price varies from store to store, this is the average price at which we find this Muscletech supplement:
|100% Premium Whey Protein Plus|
|Cost Per Serving||€ 0.60|
|Total cost||€ 44.00|
The price is not high, but it is far from being low, especially considering the quality of the product.
It has a price similar to that of Elite Whey from Dymatize, however, it is much lower in terms of quality.

THE 100% Premium Whey Protein Plus they have a protein content of 60%, and oddly enough, in a protein supplement, they have a carbohydrate concentration of 27%, which is terrible.
One would expect the price of the supplement to be low to make up for its lack of quality, but that is not the case.
For 44 € and with this low protein concentration and high carbohydrate value, we can classify this product as the worst whey we've reviewed here and a supplement to avoid.
