Best Protein Powder in 2018 (Part 2)

Protein powder part 2

Nitrotech Gold

Nitrotech Gold is a brand new whey protein powder launched by Muscle Technology in 2016.

Nitrotech Gold has 33g of protein per scoop, 24g of protein powder, and 72.7% protein content, which is 68% higher than that of Nitrotech. Compared with Nitrotech, Nitrotech Gold has made a significant reduction in calorie content and carbohydrate content, which is more suitable for those who lose fat and lose weight.


 Nitrotech Gold does not have extra amino acids such as creatine, which I like it. Moreover, whey protein itself rich in all kinds of essential and non-essential amino acids. If you feel that some amino acids are not enough to get, you can buy individual amino acid energy. So I do not like to buy amino acid-rich whey protein powder. There is no protein digestive enzyme which can be used to digest proteins in this Nitrotech Gold.


Nitrotech Gold’s solubility is good, so you can consider adding less water or using milk to flush.


Nitrotech Gold also made a corresponding change in taste compared to Nitrotech. The biggest difference is that it is not so sweet, but the taste of chocolate is not heavy and there is still a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

overall evaluation

Nitrotech Gold has made a lot of upgrades in the formulation of the product. The product uses protein peptides and whey protein powder as the main raw material, which can supply the body with protein in a shorter time. You can buy it from Amazon: MuscleTech NitroTech Whey Gold, 100% Whey Protein Powder, Whey Isolate and Whey Peptides, Double Rich Chocolate, 2.2 Pound

Cellucor Performance Whey

Cellucor, a 15-year-old brand in Texas, has been known for its best-selling nitrogen pump C4. But Cellucor’s product is not only C4, but also this Performance whey protein powder.
For chocolate taste, for example, 34g/tablet, 25g protein, protein content 73.5%, calorie content 130, 4g carbohydrate, 1g fiber, 2g sugar, 1g fat. The 150 mg of sodium and 35 mg of cholesterol also need to be specifically pointed out. Although this is not particularly high, it is worthy of attention.


Performance Whey consists mainly of separated whey protein and concentrated whey protein. The protein content of whey protein is generally above 90%, and the carbohydrate and fat content is also very low. Whey protein concentrate protein content is usually about 80%, carbohydrate and fat content is relatively higher. It should be noted that Performance Whey does not add lecithin to most products, which sounds good to those who are concerned that pulses stimulate estrogen secretion.


Although the product was not added to the most common lecithin in protein powder, its solubility was not bad. The performance will be more viscous, if you don’t like it, consider adding more water.

overall evaluation

Performance is a typical whey protein product, and there are some similarities to ON’s gold standard. It’s a worthy product recommendation. You can buy it from Amazon: Cellucor Whey Protein Isolate Powder with BCAAs, Post Workout Recovery Drink, Gluten Free Low Carb Low Fat, Molten Chocolate, 70 Servings
