THE 100% Whey Professional is a Scitec Nutrition brand whey protein supplement widely used by gym practitioners.
Let's take this protein's data and run a deep analysis of this product.
The 100% Whey Professional supplement is available at 3 sizes, a small one of 920 grams, a medium one with 2350 grams and the biggest one contains 5000 grams, that is, 5kg.
In addition to the diversity of sizes, there is an even greater variety in terms of flavours, with the classic strawberry, chocolate or vanilla being present, but also some more alternative ones, such as caramel or vanilla/blackberry.
As for ingredients, they vary from flavor to flavor, but basically consist of the following:
(Information taken from the brand's official website, we used the strawberry flavor)
The ingredients are listed in order of concentration in the product, that is, the main ingredient is Whey Concentrate and Whey Isolated, although it is in the formula, is in a residual dose.
In addition, they contain normal sweeteners and colors in whey-flavored supplements.
Looking at the ingredients, is it a good formula?
The nutritional values found on the brand's website are as follows:
For each serving we have 22g of protein, and the protein concentration in this supplement is 73.3% as we can confirm the value per 100 grams.
This Scitec Whey uses 30g doses, that is, each scoop provides 30g of supplement.
A concentration of 73% in a concentrated whey protein by itself is nothing special, this being the second lowest rating of supplements reviewed so far, earning only the Elite Whey from Dymatize.
As for the values of carbohydrates and fats, is within the range of what we normally find in concentrated whey protein supplements.
Now the problem is, this 73.3% of protein is not pure whey protein.
THE Scitec Whey Professional includes a so-called "Amino Acid Matrix" that contain Taurine, L-Glutamine and L-Leucine.
The amount present for every 100 grams of product is 3.3g for Taurine, 0.70g for L-Glutamine and 0.33g for L-Leucine.
In the case of L-Glutamine and L-Leucine, these amino acids can be embedded in the aminogram, not Taurine.
Taurine is a non-essential amino acid and only serves to increase the protein content of the protein in a “false” way, adding 3.3g of protein value to the nutritional table that are not from the whey protein, that is, those 73.3g are actually 70g of whey protein concentrate and 3.3g of taurine.
As for the case of L-Glutamine and L-Leucine, the values are so low that there is little to be said about them.
Finally, digestive enzymes are always a good addition and this formula contains Bromelain and Papain, which is a good thing.
Now, as always, we will also analyze the aminogram of this supplement and take a closer look at the quality of this product.
The table shows the amount of amino acids present in percentage per 100g of protein, containing 10.6% of Leucine, 6.4% of Isoleucine and 5.9% of Valine, totaling a value of 22.9% of BCAA's per 100g of protein.
We separated these values by real values, that is, we calculated the value of BCAA's for each 100g of product and not for each 100g of protein.
We also calculated the value of BCAA's for each dose, which gives us the values that really matter.
We chose Gold Standard because it is relatively in the same category as this Scitec product in terms of price. and Impact Whey because it is probably the best price/quality ratio Whey Concentrate supplement on the market.
|Scitec Whey||On Gold Standard||Impact Whey MP|
|BCAA's / dose||4.8/30g||5.5/29.4g||4.7/25g|
|BCAA's / 100g||16.03g||18.7g||18.7g|
Simply put, Scitec's whey is the worst of the three.
They have the lowest concentration of protein (73.3%) and BCAA's (16.03%) of the comparative.
As you would expect, neither the addition of L-Leucine makes this protein stand out in the amount of BCAA's, nor does the addition of taurine manage to mask the low protein content of this supplement.
We can say that the 100% Whey Professional from Scitec it is a mediocre whey protein supplement.
We have already seen that the ingredients of 100% Whey Professional by Scitec Nutrition are not the best and we also confirmed this in nutritional values, which leaves something to be desired, just missing the question of price to be able to classify this product correctly.
Below is a table with an analysis of the average price found in the market.
|Cost Per Serving||€0.76||€ 0.67||0.59 €|
|Total cost||€22.99||€ 52.99||€98.99|
Again, simply and directly, the price is bad.
To put prices into perspective, we decided to put all protein supplements reviewed so far face to face.
In order not to make the comparison too confusing, we are going to use the average version of each product, the 2kg one.
|Dymatize Elite 2268g||Myprotein Impact W2500g||Myprotein Impact I2500g||ON Gold Standard 2273g||Prozis Whey C2000g||
|Cost Per Serving||€ 0.67||€ 0.61||€ 0.31||€ 0.48||€ 0.75||€ 0.47||€ 0.38|
|Total cost||€ 52.99||€ 42.00||€ 30.89||€ 48.89||€ 58.00||€30.99||€ 29.99|
Scitec's Whey Professional is the second most expensive product on the list, with only Whey from Optimum Nutrition, Gold Standard, is more expensive.
It even manages to be more expensive than an exclusively isolated whey protein supplement, Impact Whey Isolate, this is the best whey ever reviewed here in terms of quality.
Where to buy?
You find this supplement available on here and you can still use the code GVIRTUAL to get a discount.
THE 100% Whey Professional by Scitec Nutrition isn't the worst whey protein supplement we've ever reviewed, that title fits Prozis Whey Prime, however, leaves something to be desired in terms of quality.
Furthermore, as if that wasn't enough, the price of this supplement is high, especially considering its quality.
It's hard to recommend this product when there are so many better and cheaper alternatives.
