BSN Whey DNA - Analysis

BSN recently launched a new product line, called DNA, which includes BCAA's, Creatine, Glutamine and…whey.

After having reviewed several BSN supplements, this is the first time that we have analyzed a Whey supplement exclusively from this brand, and we can guarantee, they contain more protein than Syntha-6... which is not very difficult.

Worth it?

That is what you will learn in this analysis.

Ingredients

Unlike Syntha-6, which has an endless list of ingredients, BSN Whey DNA features a simple formula, very similar to Optimum Nutrition's Protein Whey that we reviewed on here.

It uses two protein sources, the main one being Whey Concentrate and the secondary one being Isolated Whey. Two good sources of protein, both whey proteins, no tricks, great.

In addition to protein sources, they contain traditional flavorings, thickeners and company. The normal for a protein with flavor and without anything alarming.

Nutritional value

The nutritional values presented and used for analysis are those of the vanilla cream version.

  Dose / 34g 100g
Proteins 24g 70.59g
Carbohydrates 4g 11.77g
Fats 2.3g 6.77g

A dose of Whey DNA is composed of 34g, where 24g is pure protein, therefore, this supplement has a protein content of 70,59%, a value that falls short in a whey protein supplement.

As for carbohydrates, their percentage in this supplement is approximately 12% and fats represent around 7%.

Mediocre numbers, especially carbohydrates.

This supplement is very similar to Optimum Nutrition's Protein Whey, so let's compare it not only to this one, but to all the others we used in the same analysis.

  BSN Whey DNA ON Protein Whey ON Gold Standard Prozis Real Whey Myprotein Impact Whey Scitec Whey Professional
Proteins 70,59% 68,75% 81.6% 80% 80% 73.3%
Carbohydrates 11,77% 10,63% 6.8% 10.4% 4.9% 7%
Fats 6,77% 6,88% 3.4% 6% 7.3% 5,67%

Whey DNA contains a slightly higher protein content than Optimum Nutrition's Whey Protein, and is close to the Scitec Nutrition Whey Professional, however, is a far cry from the other three prominent supplements in the table, the Gold Standard, a Real Whey and the Impact Whey.

It is also important to highlight the values of carbohydrates, which in the case of this comparison, are the highest of all supplements presented, which is bad.

BSN, as usual, does not present the aminogram of this product, and therefore, we do not have access to the percentage of BCAA's in this supplement.

Price

The price used to perform the analysis was the one practiced by the Prozis store.

Doses 55
Cost Per Serving € 0.76
Cost per 100g protein € 3.18
Total cost € 41.99

Finally, the price.

If you use this supplement according to the doses indicated, you have approximately 55 shakes, with a cost of 0.76 € each. Less than a Burger at McDonalds, and with more protein.

However, the price leaves something to be desired and to confirm this, just take a look at the table below.

  Whey DNA Protein Whey Gold Standard Real Whey Impact Whey Whey Pro
Doses 55 53 77 80 100 78
Cost / dose € 0.76 € 0.75 € 0.75 € 0.34 € 0.36 € 0.67
Cost / 100g protein € 3.18 € 3.41 € 3.12 € 1.75 € 1.81 € 3.07
Total cost € 41.99 € 39.90 € 58 € 27.99 € 36.39 € 52.99

Looking at the cost for each shake, BSN's Whey takes the lead, and is the most expensive shake by comparison.

What is the cost per 100g of protein?

The cost per 100g of protein is the amount you pay not per 100g of product / supplement, but the amount you pay per 100g of pure protein.

Example. The Whey DNA in every 100g of powder, only 70,59% is pure protein.

To have 100g of protein in the Whey DNA you need 142g of powder to reach the 100g of real protein.

This metric is the best way to analyze the price of a protein supplement, as it is not subject to the doses pre-established by the brands and makes the cost uniform among all protein supplements.

Looking at the cost per 100g of protein, the most important variable to compare prices, BSN's Whey DNA is the second most expensive protein on the table, but it is not the second best.

That is, it also does not stand out when it comes to paying.

Verdict BSN Whey DNA

BSN Whey DNA is not a bad protein supplement, but it's not good either, neither in quality nor price.

The protein sources used are good, but it has a protein content of 70%, which today, with the amount of good whey protein supplements on the market, is a low value.

The price is high for the quality it presents, and if you are looking for your next, or first, Whey supplement, you have better options.
