Scitec ISOGREAT - Analysis

Scitec Nutrition ISOGREAT supplement review

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

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:

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.

Nutritional value

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

22g100g
Proteins20g91g
Carbohydrates0g0g
Fats0g0g

 

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!

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% 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.

IsogreatISO: PRO 97Gold Standard
Total Protein / 100g91g97g81.6g
BCAA's / 100g20.839g22,116g18.71

 

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 Gold Standard by Optimum Nutrition, as expected.

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.

Price

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

900g2300g
Doses40104
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 2.3kgISO: PRO 97 2.5kgGold Standard 2,2kg
Doses10410077
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.

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 the Whey Concentrate, however, if what interests you is only the highest quality, this is a good option.

Conclusion

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.

  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?

    Compliments.

    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. Hi! 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 keep up the great work!
