Scitec ISOGREAT - Analysis

Supplement Review ISOGREAT by Scitec Nutrition

O Isogreat is a protein supplement whey isolated from the Scitec Nutrition brand, responsible for Professional Whey that we analyzed here.

Although Professional Whey is undoubtedly Scitec's best known protein supplement, this Isogreat is probably the best whey brand, with incredible values.

Isogreat is available in two sizes: 900g and 2300g.

So let's start the review and get to know this product.


Ingredients

As you would expect, there are several flavors: Vanilla, Cappuccino, Orange Cream, Raspberry, Strawberry and Vanilla-Blackberry.

Now, as for ingredients, in vanilla flavor are these:

These are the main ingredients, then we also have sweeteners (Acesulfame K and Sucralose) and vanilla flavoring.

The main ingredient is the isolated whey protein, and there is no trace of any more protein in this formula, just two amino acids (L-Glutamine and L-Arginine).

If you read ours whey protein guide, you know that the isolated whey is of excellent quality.

As for amino acids, we will analyze further down in the aminogram.

Nutritional value

The nutritional values ​​that are available on the brand website are these:

22g 100g
Proteins 20g 91g
Carbohydrates 0g 0g
Fats 0g 0g

 

The 22g refers to a scoop of this supplement, while in the column on the side we have the values ​​for each 100g of product.

A Whey Professional by Scitec it had only 73,3% protein content, which is not bad, but it is also nothing special.

As for Isogreat, they contain a protein content of 91%, which is excellent.

As if the high protein content was not enough, this supplement stands out for being free not only of carbohydrates, but also of fats, that is, it is only protein!

Very good.


Aminogram

aminogram scitec isogreat

Here is the official aminogram presented by the brand on its website.

This table shows the percentage of amino acids per 100g of pure protein, that is, we have 10,6% L-Leucine, 6,4% L-Isoleucine and 5,9% L-Valine, the well-known BCAA's.

However, this is the values ​​per 100% protein, and, as this supplement has a protein content of 91%, we will have to reduce it to 91% to know the values ​​per 100g of product.

In this case, we have a total of 20,839% BCAA's for every 100g of Isogreat, which is very good.

As always, we will compare these values ​​with other proteins already analyzed so that we can have a perspective of these values.

We selected the ISO: PRO 97 from Myprotein, because it is also an isolated whey, and the ON Gold Standard, to give us a perspective of the differences between an exclusively isolated whey compared to a concentrated and isolated protein mixture.

Isogreat ISO: PRO 97 Gold Standard
Total Protein / 100g 91g 97g 81,6g
BCAA's / 100g 20,839g 22,116g 18,71

 

So, as we can see from the table, Isogreat is slightly lower than the ISO: PRO 97 from Myprotein, but it is far superior to Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard, as expected.

They contain less 6g of protein in relation to the supplement of Myprotein, while compared to Gold Standard, they contain 9,4g more protein for every 100g, a big difference.

As for L-Arginine and added L-Glutamine, Isogreat contains more Glutamine than ISO: PRO 97 but less L-Arginine compared to the Myprotein supplement. In both amino acids the differences are minimal.

Therefore, we can say that Isogreat is undoubtedly an excellent product, with a high protein content and a large amount of BCAA's.


Price

Now that we know that Isogreat is really quality, it's time to assess the price.

900g 2300g
Shots 40 104
Cost per dose 0,75€ 0,67€
Cost 100g / protein * 3,66€ 3,34€
Total cost 30,00€ 70,00€
* Cost per 100g of protein refers to the amount paid for each actual 100g of protein. While the cost per dose refers to the cost per scoop, in this case 22g and containing 20g protein, the cost per 100g protein refers not to product 100g but to protein 100g itself.

To have a shake with 20g of protein and 0g of carbohydrates and fats, we pay 0,75 € or 0,67 €, depending on the format.

It is difficult to evaluate a whey protein using the dose referenced by the brand, since all brands use different doses, so we calculated the value per 100g of protein to have a more accurate number, and a more accurate evaluation.

So let's compare the values ​​for supplements from Optimum Nutrition and Myprotein again. 

Isogreat 2,3kg ISO: PRO 97 2,5kg Gold Standard 2,2kg
Shots 104 100 77
Cost per dose 0,67€ 0,69€ 0,75€
Cost 100g / protein 3,34€ 2,91€ 3,12€
Total cost 70,00€ 69,99€ 58,00€

 

The cost per dose is the lowest of the three supplements, however, it is a little misleading, as each dose of Isogreat contains only 20g of protein, due to the dose referenced by the brand being low.

In the cost per 100g of protein, we see that it is the most expensive protein of the three, which is perfectly normal in view of the ON Gold Standard, as it is a much superior product.

In relation to ISO: PRO 97, Scitec protein is € 0,43 more expensive compared to the price paid for each 100g of protein.

Yeah man?

The cost per 100g of protein is a little high, however, it is important to remember that this supplement is composed only of isolated protein, and contain 0g of both carbohydrates and fat, which is an asset.

If what you are looking for is a protein supplement with the best quality / price ratio, you are better served with options like Impact Whey or Whey Concentrate, however, if what interests you is only the highest quality, this is a good option.


Where to buy?

You find this supplement available here and you can still use the code GVIRTUAL to get a discount.


Conclusion

O Isogreat from Scitec Nutrition is undoubtedly a very interesting supplement.

It combines a very high protein content with nonexistent values ​​of carbohydrates and fats, which is excellent.

The amount of BCAA's is also high, and it only costs a little bit for every 100g of protein, in which it is surpassed by ISO: PRO 97, although it achieves a better cost per dose than Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard.

In short, although the price is a little high for a protein, it is important not to forget that this is not just any protein, but an exclusively isolated whey, with 0g of carbohydrates and fats.

  1. Good!

    I have been searching for different brands of whey, and I was undecided between Scitec Isogreat 2300g and Biotech USA Iso Whey Zero 2270g + 20% Free (2724g). Scitec has a higher protein content (91%) compared to that of Biotech (88%) despite being insignificant, as well as the difference in carbohydrates and fats between the two; Based on the prices in force on the Prozis website, Scitec is on sale for € 63.99 and Biotech for € 58.89. The only issue that I can't figure out is the amount of BCAA'S in Biotech's protein. In view of these points, what should be my choice in your opinion?

    Greetings.

    1. Hi John.

      According to the Biotech website there are 4,9g of BCAA's per dose, which gives a total of 19,6% with added BCAA's.

      It is nothing special for an isolate, and most likely it is because of Glycine.

      The alleged sources of protein represent 88% of the supplement, and the ingredient that comes after this mixture is Glycine, "disguised" as a flavor enhancer, that is, it is likely that the amount is still significant.

      You will not fail to have good results for that, but in practice you will be buying a mediocre Isolated Whey supplement when you have better options in terms of quality / price in this category.

  2. Hello! I would like to congratulate you for the great work and incredible reviews reported here.
    I didn't know your site, and I decided to google it in a review and ended up discovering your work. My congratulations and continue the great work!
