A 100% Whey Professional is a whey protein supplement from the Scitec Nutrition brand widely used by gym users.
Let's take the data on this protein and do an in-depth analysis of this product.
The 100% Whey Professional supplement is available at 3 sizes, a small one weighs 920 grams, a medium one weighs 2350 grams and the largest contains 5000 grams, that is, 5kg.
In addition to the diversity of sizes, there is an even greater variety when it comes to flavors, with the classic strawberry, chocolate or vanilla being present, but also some more alternative ones, such as caramel or vanilla/blackberry.
As for ingredients, they vary from flavor to flavor, but basically consist of the following:
(Information taken from the brand's official website, we used the strawberry flavor)
- Whey Protein Concentrate
- Whey Protein Isolate
- Digestive enzymes
The ingredients are listed in order of concentration in the product, that is, the main ingredient is Concentrated Whey and, although Isolated Whey is in the formula, it is in a residual dose.
In addition, they contain sweeteners and colorings normal in whey-flavored supplements.
Looking at the ingredients, is it a good formula?
The nutritional values that we found on the brand's website are as follows:
For each dose we have 22g of protein, and the protein concentration in this supplement is 73.3% as we can confirm from the value per 100 grams.
This Whey from Scitec uses doses of 30g, that is, each scoop provides 30g of supplement.
A concentration of 73% in a concentrated whey protein in itself is nothing special, this being the second lowest rating of supplements reviewed so far, gaining only Dymatize Elite Whey.
As for the values of carbohydrates and fats, it is within the values of what we normally find in concentrated whey protein supplements.
Now, the problem is, these 73.3% of protein are not pure whey protein.
A Scitec Whey Professional includes a so-called ?Amino Acid Matrix? which contain Taurine, L-Glutamine It is L-Leucine.
The amount present per 100 grams of product is 3.3g in the case of Taurine, 0.70g in the case of L-Glutamine and 0.33g in the case of L-Leucine.
In the case of L-Glutamine and L-Leucine, these amino acids can be included in the aminogram, this is not the case with Taurine.
Taurine is a non-essential amino acid and only serves to increase the protein content of the protein in a "false" way, adding 3.3g of protein value to the nutritional table that are not from whey protein, that is, those 73.3g are in fact 70g of concentrated whey protein and 3.3g of taurine.
As for L-Glutamine and L-Leucine, the values are so low that there is little to say about them.
Finally, digestive enzymes are always a good addition and this formula contains Bromelain and Papain, which is positive.
Now, as always, we will also analyze the aminogram of this supplement and see in more detail the quality of this product.
The table shows the amount of amino acids present in percentage per 100g of protein, containing 10.6% of Leucine, 6.4% of Isoleucine and 5.9% of Valine, totaling a value of 22.9% of BCAA's per 100g of protein.
We separated these values by real values, that is, we calculated the value of BCAA's for each 100g of product and not for each 100g of protein.
We also calculated the value of BCAA's for each dose, which gives us the values that really matter.
We chose Gold Standard because it is relatively in the same category as this Scitec product in terms of price. and Impact Whey because it is probably the Whey Concentrate supplement with the best price/quality ratio on the market.
|Scitec Whey||On Gold Standard||Impact Whey MP|
Simply put, Scitec's whey is the worst of the three.
They have the lowest concentration of protein (73.3%) and BCAA's (16.03%) in the comparison.
As expected, not even the addition of L-Leucine makes this protein stand out in the amount of BCAA's and not even the addition of taurine can mask the low protein content of this supplement.
We can say that the 100% Whey Professional by Scitec it is a mediocre whey protein supplement.
We have already seen that the ingredients of 100% Whey Professional from Scitec Nutrition are not the best and we have also confirmed this in the nutritional values, which leave something to be desired, with only the issue of price remaining to be able to classify this product correctly.
Below is a table with an analysis of the average price found in the market.
|Cost per dose||0.76 ?||0.67?||0.59?|
Once again, simply and directly, the price is bad.
To put prices into perspective, we decided to put all protein supplements reviewed so far face to face.
To avoid making the comparison too confusing, we will use the medium version of each product, the 2kg version.
|Dymatize Elite 2268g||Myprotein Impact W2500g||Myprotein Impact I2500g||ON Gold Standard 2273g||Prozis Whey C2000g||
|Cost per dose||0.67?||0.61 ?||0.31 ?||0.48?||0.75?||0.47?||0.38?|
Whey Professional from Scitec is the second most expensive product on the list, with only whey from Optimum Nutrition, Gold Standard, is more expensive.
It can also be more expensive than an exclusively isolated whey protein supplement, Impact Whey Isolate, this is the best whey ever analyzed here in terms of quality.
Where to buy?
You can find this supplement available here and you can still use the code GVIRTUAL to get a discount.
A 100% Whey Professional from Scitec Nutrition is not the worst whey protein supplement we have ever analyzed, with that title being right up there. Prozis Whey Prime, however, leaves something to be desired in terms of quality.
Furthermore, as if that weren't enough, the price of this supplement is high, especially considering its quality.
It's difficult to recommend this product when there are so many better and cheaper alternatives.
