Although Professional Whey is undoubtedly Scitec's best-known protein supplement, this Isogreat is probably the brand's best whey, 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 the ingredients, in the vanilla flavor they 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 isolated whey protein, and there are no traces of any other protein in this formula, just two amino acids (L-Glutamine and L-Arginine).
If you read our whey protein guide, you know that isolated whey is of excellent quality.
As for amino acids, we will analyze them further below, in the aminogram.
The nutritional values that are available on the brand's website are these:
The 22g refers to one scoop of this supplement, while in the column on the side we have the values for each 100g of product.
A Whey Professional from Scitec it only had 73.3% of protein content, which isn't terrible, but it's nothing special either.
As for the Isogreat, contain a protein content of 91%, which is excellent.
As if the high protein content wasn't enough, this supplement stands out for being free not only of carbohydrates, but also of fats, in other words, it's just protein!
Here we have 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, these are the values per 100% of 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% 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 to get a perspective on these values.
We selected the ISO:PRO 97 from Myprotein, as it is also an isolated whey, and the ON's Gold Standard, to give us some perspective on the differences between a solely whey isolate versus a blend of protein concentrate and isolate.
|Isogreat||ISO:PRO 97||Gold Standard|
They contain 6g less protein compared to the Myprotein supplement, while compared to the Gold Standard, they contain 9.4g more protein per 100g, a big difference.
As for added L-Arginine and 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 without a doubt an excellent product, with a high protein content and a large amount of BCAA's.
Now that we know that Isogreat really has quality, it's time to evaluate the price.
|Cost per dose||0.75?||0.67?|
[box type=?info? align=?? class=?? width=??]
*The cost per 100g of protein refers to the amount paid for each 100g of real protein.
While the cost per dose 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, do 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, as all brands use different doses, therefore, we calculated the value per 100g of protein to have a more accurate number, and a more precise evaluation.
Let's compare the values of 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?|
The cost per dose is the lowest of the three supplements, however, it is a bit misleading, as each dose of Isogreat only contains 20g of protein, due to the brand's referenced dose 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 given the ON's Gold Standard, as it is a much superior product.
Regarding the ISO:PRO 97, Scitec's protein is 0.43? more expensive in relation to the price paid for each 100g of protein.
The cost per 100g of protein is a little high, however, it is important not to forget that this supplement is made up only of isolated protein, and contains 0g of both carbohydrates and fat, which is an added value.
If what you are looking for is a protein supplement with the best quality/price ratio, you are better served with options such as Impact Whey Or the Whey ConcentrateHowever, if what interests you is just maximum quality, this is a good option.

O Scitec ISOGREAT It is undoubtedly a very interesting supplement.
It combines a very high protein content with non-existent amounts of carbohydrates and fats, which is excellent.
The amount of BCAA's is also high, and is only a little low in cost per 100g of protein, which is surpassed by ISO:PRO 97, although it achieves a better cost per dose than the 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.
