THE 100% Premium Whey Protein Plus, as the name implies is a whey protein supplement.
Although there is a 907g version, let's look at only the 2.267kg format in the strawberry version (nutritional values and scoop size change slightly from flavor to flavor).
Also, this review will be less complete than usual as Muscletech does not provide an aminogram of this supplement.
Premium Whey is available in 5 flavors, they are: Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, biscuit and banana.
The ingredients used in this formula as a protein source are protein concentrated whey, isolated and hydrolyzed, in that order.
Right next in the ingredients table we find maltodextrin, which is strange, a set of isolated amino acids, dubbed the "recovery matrix", with creatine, taurine, leucine, isoleucine, valine and glutamine.
In addition, they also contain glycine (ugh) alone, and traditional flavorings and colorings in flavored whey supplements.
Just looking at the ingredients without knowing the nutritional values, it is thought that this supplement will have more carbohydrates than it should, but we will confirm if this is the case.
The official nutritional values announced by the brand on its website are as follows:
So we have 20g of protein for each serving (31g) and 60.61g for each 100g of product.
These values are low for a protein supplement, a protein content of 60% is really very low and it's the lowest value we've looked at so far.
As if it wasn't enough to be low in protein, the value of carbohydrates is frightening.
We have 9g of carbohydrates per serving and 27.27g of carbohydrates per 100g of product.
27.27g of carbohydrates for every 100g of a whey protein supplement?
Was Muscletech trying to build a gainer?
As a rule, we find values from 5g to 10g of carbohydrates in protein supplements, now 27 grams is undoubtedly absurd.
Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to assess the quality of the protein contained in this product, as Muscletech does not provide the amino acid profile of this supplement.
Despite this, let's make a few observations.
Although the main source of protein in this supplement is good quality (whey protein), not all of the protein on the label is whey protein.
That is, the so-called recovery matrix that includes Creatine, Taurine and other amino acids, is counted as protein, when in fact they are just isolated amino acids and not complete protein.
It is impossible to say to what extent this detracts from the quality of this supplement, as there is no amino acid profile.
However, the protein content is already low and adding to that the fact that some of this protein is just a few isolated amino acids, we risk saying that the The quality of this supplement leaves much to be desired.
Although the price varies from store to store, this is the average price at which we find this Muscletech supplement:
|100% Premium Whey Protein Plus|
|Cost Per Serving||€0.60|
The price is not high, but it is far from low, especially considering the quality of the product.
It has a price similar to the Elite Whey from Dymatize, however, is much inferior in terms of quality.

THE 100% Premium Whey Protein Plus they have a protein content of 60%, and oddly enough, in a protein supplement, they have a carbohydrate concentration of 27%, which is terrible.
One would expect the supplement's price to be low to compensate for its lack of quality, but this is not the case.
For €44 and with this low protein concentration and high carbohydrate value, we can classify this product as the worst whey we've reviewed here and a supplement to avoid.
