Although Professional Whey is without a doubt the most well-known protein supplement from Scitec, this Isogreat is probably the best whey of the brand, with incredible values.
Scitec Isogreat is available in two sizes: 900g and 2300g.
So let's start the review and get to know this product.
Scitec ISOGREAT 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:
- Isolated whey protein
These are the main ingredients, then we 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.
THE Scitec Whey Professional it had only 73.3% of protein content, which is not bad, but it is also nothing special.
As for the Isogreat, 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% of L-Leucine, 6.4% of L-Isoleucine and 5.9% of L-Valine, the well-known BCAA's.
However, this is the values per 100% of protein, and, as this supplement has a protein content of 91%, we will have to reduce it to 91% in order to know the values for each 100g of product.
In this case, we have a total of 20.839% of BCAA's for every 100g of Scitec 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 6g less 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 Scitec 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 Serving||€ 0.75||€ 0.67|
|Cost 100g / protein *||€ 3.66||€ 3.34|
|Total cost||€ 30.00||€ 70.00|
* The cost per 100g of protein, refers to the amount paid for each 100g of real protein.
While the cost per serving refers to the cost per scoop, which in this case is 22g and contains 20g of protein, the cost per 100g of protein refers not to 100g of product but to 100g of pure protein.
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 the supplements from Optimum Nutrition and Myprotein again.
|Isogreat 2.3kg||ISO: PRO 97 2.5kg||Gold Standard 2,2kg|
|Cost Per Serving||€ 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 the 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 the Whey Concentrate, however, if what interests you is only the highest quality, this is a good option.
Where to buy?
You find Scitec ISOGREAT available here and you can still use the code GVIRTUAL to get a discount.
O Scitec ISOGREAT it 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 the Gold Standard by Optimum Nutrition.
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.
