Supplement Review ISOGREAT by Scitec Nutrition
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.
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:
- Isolated whey protein
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.
The nutritional values that are available on the brand website are these:
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!
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|
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.
Now that we know that Isogreat is really quality, it's time to assess the price.
|Cost per dose||0,75€||0,67€|
|Cost 100g / protein *||3,66€||3,34€|
* 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|
|Cost per dose||0,67€||0,69€||0,75€|
|Cost 100g / protein||3,34€||2,91€||3,12€|
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.
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.

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.
