Best Whey Protein Powder 2018 (Part 1)

Whey protein contains proteins that can be quickly absorbed by the body. This makes it a high-quality, fast-absorbing supplement suitable for use after training. If, after training, you are slow to absorb the current protein shake, please switch to whey protein powder. It can supply your muscles as fast as you can.  Summary: Whey protein has the advantages of high absorption rate, rapid absorption, and can provide you with a large number of nutrients and proteins. If you don’t plan to increase muscle mass or reduce fat, whey protein will be an excellent choice for you.

Nutrition

Start with the most basic list of nutrients. It has 30.4g per spoon, and protein content is 79%. The composition of this gold standard is very simple. Take chocolate type as an example. First, three different forms of whey protein, isolated whey occupied the highest content, which is a highly purified whey protein, typically with a purity higher than 90%, of the caloric content is also small, easily digested and absorbed. The calorie content is very small, very easy to be digested and absorbed.

The second one is concentrated whey protein, which is the first-grade extract of whey protein, it has 80% protein, but its calorie content is also higher. In addition to the 3 different whey proteins, the role of lecithin is to increase the solubility of the product. Amino is a mixture of many different digestive enzymes that can help increase protein digestion and absorption.

Solubility

It has great solubility and I usually put it into the Shaker cup and shake it 😉

Taste

The ON has more than 20 different flavors, and chocolate is the best-selling one. Good and bad drinking is a very subjective issue, and no evaluation is made here. However, it is certain that this product is much lighter than many other protein powders.

overall evaluation

The biggest feature of the product is simple, 3 different whey protein + flavoring + digestive enzymes. Each spoon of 24g protein, 3g carbohydrates, 1g sugar, 1g fat, is a good choice for low-fat, low-carb diet. The price is not cheap in whey protein, but the quality of the product is absolutely guaranteed.

Allmax Nutrition Allwhey Classic

Each spoon of Allwhey Classic is 43g, the content of each spoon than other brands available in the market 30-35g of protein powder, which can really be said to be a tablespoon. The protein in each scoop is 30g and the protein content is 71.4%. The calorie is 170, the carbohydrate is 9g, and the sugar is 6g with 2g fat. Need special attention is 6g sugar, the content is not small!

Nutrition

The protein in Allwhey Classic consists mainly of concentrated whey protein and isolated whey protein. When concentrated whey protein is on top of the nutrient profile, it means that the proportion of concentrated whey protein in Allwhey Classic is higher. After a more complete removal of lactose and fat, the isolated whey protein has a higher protein content and a lower calorie content. Adding to the Allwhey Classic enhances the entire product in the protein.

Solubility

v2-cc7b9a999fa5c0c1d4395ad4d98328be_hdAllwhey Classic has good solubility and dissolves quickly, but it will grow many vesicles. No agglomeration was found and it was thick and slippery.

Taste

Allmax products were famous in taste and this Allwhey Classic did not disappoint me. As a chocolate fan, I still tested the chocolate flavor. Just after opening the bottle cap, a chocolate milk smells like noodles. It’s like drinking a rich chocolate milkshake and it’s very smooth. It didn’t feel particularly sweet to drink, but only a rich feeling.

overall evaluation

This Allwhey Classic is a whey protein powder based on concentrated whey protein. Therefore, the product has a high carbohydrate content, especially 6g of sugar. In addition, since lactose in concentrated whey protein is not sufficiently filtered out, it is not suitable for people with gastrointestinal sensitivity.

Muscletech NitroTech

Muscular technology has always been a leading brand in the fitness industry. The company was established in 1998 and its Nitrotech is a muscle protein star protein powder.

Nutrition

Each spoonful of positive nitrogen is 44g, protein 30g, the protein content is 68%, this ratio is not good though. Calories are 160, fat 2.5g, carbohydrate 4g, sugar 1g. In the nutrient composition table, Nitrotech also deliberately marked the content of several amino acids, 6.9g of branched chain amino acids and 3g of creatine. Whey protein itself is rich in branched-chain amino acids, 30g protein 6.9g branched-chain amino acid ratio is basically normal, 3g creatine is added, this design is also clever.

In addition to the amino acids that most of the two protein powders will be labeled, Nitrotech also lists 2 g Alanine, 1 g Glycine, and 1 g Taurine, which gives me a little “amino spiking”.  The so-called amino spiking means that many protein powder brands will add extra cheap amino acids to the protein powder to increase the number of nitrogen chains in the protein powder, so as to reduce the amount of whey protein powder.

Solubility

Nitrotech’s solubility is generally slight with agglomeration but does not affect use.

Taste

The barrel I tried was chocolate-flavored. Opening the lid was like a chocolate-flavored scent. It was very impulsive.

overall evaluation

Nitrotech gave me some disappointment. Although there are unique ideas above the formula, excessive calorie content and too low protein content give the product a lot of points. Too sweet is another important impression that the product left for me. It is recommended that unless you find a particularly good discount, do not start this product at the original price. MuscleTech NitroTech Protein Powder, 100% Whey Protein with Whey Isolate, Milk Chocolate, 4 Pound
