Muscletech Platinum Whey - Review

Muscletech Platinum Whey Supplement Review

THE Platinum 100% Whey is a protein supplement whey from the Muscletech brand, and belongs to its Essential Series product line.

It is available in two sizes - 907g and 2270g.
As for flavors, there are 5 - Chocolate and peanut butter, vanilla, wafer and cream, strawberry - cream and milk chocolate.

First of all, the review will be made to the vanilla version, and there are small nutritional and ingredient differences between flavors.

The list of ingredients is as follows:

Ingredients

We start with the main ones, that is, what protein sources do we have here?
Esta fórmula utiliza isolated whey, péptidos de whey e whey concentrada. Faz lembrar a fórmula da ON, o que é positivo.
After protein sources, we have several (too many) products used mainly to flavor the supplement.

So good sources of protein, too many additives.

Nutritional value

Proteins24g70.59g
Carbohydrates4g11.77g
Fats1.5g4.41g

 

Each serving of Platinum 100% Whey is 34g, and the values are shown in the table above, as are the values for each 100g.

Platinum 100% Whey has a protein concentration of 70,59%, which is low.
In addition, the amount of carbohydrates is high for a whey supplement, containing twice as much as that found for example in Impact Whey.

Finally, the fat levels are within the average.

The nutritional table is not impressive, let's see the aminogram.


Aminogram

The aminogram is important to see the quality of the protein, and it is often here that we have many surprises, but taking into account the low protein content of Platinum 100% Whey, it would be expected that here the values would not stand out.

The amount of BCAA's in this supplement per 100g is only 16.18g, a low value.

But, is it that low?

Let's put it next to two whey supplements for comparison.

Platinum 100% WheyON Gold StandardISO: PRO 97
Total Protein70.59g81.6g97g
BCAA's / 100g16.18g18.71g22.11g


Platinum Whey VS Gold Standard

First we choose the ON Gold Standardas it is not only the most well-known whey supplement, but has a similar protein formula.

The result?
Platinum 100% Whey has 11g less protein, and 2.5g less BCAA's for every 100g.
A huge difference.

Platinum Whey VS ISO: PRO 97

Then, although on the one hand it is not fair to compare a mixture of proteins to an exclusively isolated whey, this is what we did with ISO: PRO 97.

Why?
Because Platinum 100% Whey can be more expensive than ISO: PRO 97 isolated whey!
The result is that we see in the table, less 27g of protein and less 6g of BCAA's for every 100g.

This gives a total of less than 540g of pure protein for every 2kg, that is, less than half a kg of protein!


Price

907g2270g
Doses2767
Cost Per Serving€ 1.29€ 1.13
Cost 100g / protein *€ 5.46€ 4.74
Total cost€ 34.99€ 75.99
 * 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, in this case 34g and containing 24g of protein, the cost per 100g of protein refers not to 100g of product but to 100g of protein itself.

Muscletech is known for being a brand that exaggerates the price, and with this supplement they maintain the tradition.

When we thought that Iron Whey it was expensive, here comes the Platinum 100% Whey.

It costs € 1.29 per shake in the small format, and € 1.13 for each serving if we look at the large size of 2270g.

In addition, for 100g of protein the cost is 5.46 € for the 907g version and 4.74 € for the 2270g version.

Terrible.

We will once again use both the ON Gold Standard, such as ISO: PRO 97 from Myprotein to put these prices in perspective.

Platinum Whey 2.2kgON Gold Standard 2,2kgISO: PRO 97

Cost 100g / protein€ 4.74€ 3.12€ 2.91
Total cost€ 75.99€ 58€ 69.99

 

As we can see from the table, Muscletech's Platinum Whey is by far the most expensive of the three.

€ 4.74 per 100g of protein?

€ 75.99 for 2.2kg of whey?

There must be gold in there.


Where to buy?

You find this supplement available on here and you can still use the code GVIRTUAL to get a discount.


Conclusion

So what can we say about Platinum 100% Whey from Muscletech?

Let's start with the good points, and close our eyes a little, especially at the price.

The sources of protein are good, use only whey protein, and have in their ingredients isolated whey and whey peptides.

Now, the problem is, the protein content is only 70% and the carbohydrate levels are high, but ... this is not even the worst. The worst is even when we look at the price and see that this is one of the most expensive supplements on the market, without justification for it.

Platinum 100% Whey is proof that the most expensive is not always the best.

Weak

The protein content is nothing special, but the price is, and not in a positive way.
